The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression number 1

Every morning during the World Cup we are going to send an expeditionary force down to the fetid lair of our semi-trained hominid and resident artist Dotmund to prod him with a stick and see if he’s got any drawings of the previous night’s action lying around. This morning’s dawn raid yielded fruit, as he mourns…

The 200% World Cup: England & Jimmy Hill The Redeemer

The 200% World Cup: England & Jimmy Hill The Redeemer

Banks, Cohen, Wilson, Stiles, J. Charlton, Moore, Ball, R. Charlton, Hurst, Peters, Hunt. The eleven names any football-obsessed English youngster knows. Although a significant proportion of these youngsters are now in their thirties and forties. Yes, forty-eight years is a long time.
