Cool Retro Football T-Shirts From tenten*


More share options

So, full time is rapidly approaching in the 2010 World Cup.

There’s just over a week to go now until the Final and then that’s our lot for another four years.

But though the feast of football is almost done, the festival need never end – thanks to a bunch of talented artists  who have just launched their own design and print studio with a range of stylish, hand-printed, retro football-themed T-shirts.

The inaugural offerings from tenten* – who are based near Glasgow, Scotland – celebrate football in general and the highlights of World Cups and European Championships gone by.

Here are a few of the offerings from their initial range (other colour combos are available – check the website for the full range).

Buy now and get in before the brand becomes famous and everyone is wearing the label.

This one celebrates Maradona’s legendary goal for Argentina against England at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico (La Mano De Dios = The Hand Of God).

Ask nicely and they might even add the “Maradona 10” back print in the photo below this one:

The white shirt below celebrates the French triumph at Euro 84, in particular the Carre Magique – the Magic Square of midfielders Luis Fernandez, Jean Tigana, Alain Giresse and Michel Platini:

The next one is a tribute to Brazil’s 1970 World Cup winning squad (beer belly optional):

And here is a more generic Copa futbol shirt:

And here’s the motley crew who are responsible for them all (but don’t let that put you off buying):

I should point out that one of the guys behind the studio is a mate of mine from work but beyond that I have no connection to it. However, it’s a talented group of guys and if you want to support their future work, I know they’d appreciate your custom.

It’s Classic Clip Friday: The Greatest Goal Ever Scored!


The Choob doesn’t often venture into the world of sports broadcasting – and won’t be starting to do so any time soon.

However, since Scotland are playing Holland in a 2010 World Cup qualifier tomorrow (Saturday) night, I though it only fitting that I choose the following as this week’s classic clip.

Ladies and gentleman, it is 1978. It is the FIFA World Cup in Argentina. It is Scotland versus Holland. The man of the hour is Archie Gemmill.
