Best football images


Recommended Posts

^^ Never mind, I wasn't aware that outside England fans aren't banned for flares in the stadium. I rarely watch continental games, and the ones I've seen I don't remember them showing widespread use of flares by fans unless it was for negative reasons. Crazy in my opinion to allow them in the stadiums.

Had to put this one up today !........Taken exactly 50 years ago (almost to the minute?)

The past 50 years have shown the magnitude of their achievement. It's damn difficult to win the World Cup, and the fact they won it means they must have had an abundance of team spirit, cohesion, passion, and complete commitment to the collective cause.

Zidane walking past the World Cup after the biggest WTF moment in football history, possibly all of sports history.

Messi after losing the 2014 final. I wanted Argentina to win so I don't like the context, but it's one hell of a photograph. It won World Press sports photograph of the year.

This is a fascinating look at what was happening on the other side at the same time.

Strangely, these images don't make me feel happy. They don't make me feel anything negative, but they don't make me feel happy.

It's irrational in a way because the image of Chelsea lifting the cup inevitably co-exists with the image of the Barcelona dressing room, so you can argue that rationally your reaction should be the same to both images. I guess that's a philosophical question.

Pictures we hardly ever see. But...didn't we beat Bayern Munich in the final and Barcelona in the semi? So those dressing room scenes can't have happened at the same time as we were lifting that cup, if at all they were from the same tournament.

charierre; I enjoy watching the Match of the Day footage of that 'exchange' between Frannie Lee and Norman Hunter.

 

There are certain moments in football that can be said to be iconic, be it a great goal, a flashpoint or something bizarre. I can remember these better from 40 yrs ago than a game we played in the last couple of seasons.

Charierre: Agreed. I remember a cracking story about the late Joe Mercer.

A journalist phoned him and asked him who he was considering buying.

The headline soon afterwards was " Mercer looks to buy. Ernie Hunt.'

After the next game Mercer asked this journalist when did he say anything about buying Ernie Hunt ?

You said on the phone to me a few days ago.

' I said ' Any c*nt, not Ernie Hunt ! ' replied Mercer...

This article, the greatest piece of sports journalism in the history of the written word, is a treasure trove of brilliant pictures.

Be sure as well to watch the video at the top. England would have won by a landslide if not for Sterling ruining it at the end. I couldn't get the video to play on my phone, so you might need to be on a regular computer to see it.
