    Nice.
    I prefer the Italian stretch-to-fit jobbie.

    Is anyone interested in free Fantasy World Cup?

    no no no!! - all wrong- you can buy a french football shirt (because it's french)

    and you can't buy a italian one (because it's kappa)

    Has anyone seen that film 'Be a Bender like Beckham' yet? It looks pretty good I think.

    there are some really cool retro scottish tops in the she shops in Leicester.

    But I like the '82 France top cause it was classic adidas.

    Maker - care to elaborate on the Kappa thing? Is it the trailer trash connection?
    I have a Brazil '70 top, but I also have a Brentford top so...

    French is bad enough but italian is just wrong.


    I can accept the dutch strip cos it rules. Both home and away.

    oh yeah, and they ain't in the world cup.


    I might have a little flutter on Brazil to win. Gotta be worth 6/1 IMO.

    I don't get this hostility towards our Mediterranean chums. Sure, they can't decide which side they want to be on, but the top is sooooo slinky smooth next to your skin.
    Bets - Ronaldo for GoldenBoot - 6/1. Worth a flutter, as 6 goals is usually enough to win it and Brazil play China, Costa Rica and Turkey in Phase 1.

    nooooooooo, not the italian kappa top noooooo


    my friend insists on wearing one (becuase he's 1/8 italian (7/8 idiot) - and he looks like he trying to wear a childs football kit.

    i'm sure kappa gear is only meant for 13 year old girls and italian footballers (same rules apply)

    LMAO @ Maker

    Yeah, I see where you're coming from, but, hey, some people might like dressing up like 13 year old girls...

    yeah, the '98 Italy top was funky, a future Nike classic. The Kappa one looks like a girls top or a steroid city meat heads top.

    It's handy though, cos all the Italians look like girls.

    I like Cameroon's sleeveless jobs!

    I always support the Italians after England. And I hate Brazil. Especially the she-ite '94 team that went on to win the world cup.

    Brazil have sleeveless tops as well as Cameroon, but FIFA has ruled that they're not allowed to wear them in the world cup apparently. I may be wrong?
    I like Spain. They always do rubbish, but I suppose thats why I like them.
    Italy - well, with a playmaker called Totti, what d'ya expect!

    Roberto Baggio. Star footballer. I suppose I like Italina football cause I used to watch it on Channel 4.

    And Tardelli's celebration in the '82 World cup.
