Dotmund’s Eureux Tapestry: Day 3

We had another terrible day in Marseille yesterday, so here’s a little light relief in the form of another instalment of Dotmund’s Eureux Tapestry, which features Gareth Bale’s bun, a little fraternal disagreement and, of course, quite a few bottles flying through the air. You can enlarge this picture to its normal size by clicking on it.     Twohundredpercent is, after ten years, endeavouring to try and change itself into a more commercially-focused website, complete with an e-magazine for subscribers.

Dotmund’s Eureaux Tapestry: Day Two

Well, the first day of the 2016 European Championships is over and it’s reasonable to say that it was a pretty dismal one for the English, at least. We’ve already addressed the disturbances in Marseille last night on these pages, so it’s probably time for a little light relief in the form of day two of Dotmund’s Eureaux Tapestry, which will be telling the story of this summer’s European Championships through the medium of a Bayeux tapestry-esque illustration. So, featuring no-necked melts in England shirts, trigger-happy, tear gas wielding gendarmes, and happily celebrating French people, here’s the second instalment...

Dotmund’s Bayeux Odyssey: Day One

Long time readers of this site will already be plenty aware of the fact that we love a bit of art here on 200%. From that picture of dogs playing poker to the poster of a woman scratching her backside whilst playing tennis, there isn’t any art that we don’t like. In 2010, Edward Carter took the story of France’s brief involvement in the competition and told it through the means of a Bayeux Tapestry, and this summer, as it’s being held in France, he’s telling the story of the entire tournament. He’s already indicated the extent of the...

10 Years of Twohundredpercent: Mungo Rides Again

Those amongst you with long memories will probably remember our cartoon series, Shit Shot Mungo. Over the course of 110 cartoons and a handful of specials, Edward Carter (and later David Squires) told us the story of Mungo McCrackas, a striker who was (almost) inexplicably signed by the Scottish club Heart of Clackmannanshire on a ten year contract that was worth £47m per year and guaranteed that he had to start every match up front and on his own. Such contractual details didn’t overly bother the club’s chairman and magnet magnate Sir Roddy Bulbs, of course, but they didn’t...

Parking The Coach, Part Two: Valeriy Lobanovskyi

In the second of our new series on the great coaches of the past, Edward Carter looks at the life and career of Valeriy Lobanovskyi, with both words and a picture. In spite of what watching Sunderland might teach us to the contrary, association football stubbornly refuses to be purely categorised as an art form. Even when played at its most aesthetically pleasing, football remains a game that prizes gusto over brio. It is, in the final analysis, always fundamentally an exercise in mathematics, an activity, a sport and a business built on results and results alone. Nevertheless, popular...
