    Holy f—g shit. I think you just won the Internet.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Any cool St Vincent shirts exist? I'm a big fan of Annie Clarke so think that'd be a cool thing to have.

    One of the more difficult Caribbean shirts to obtain. I have two, neither particularly interesting designs:

    They probably had some more fun designs in the 90s but there wouldn't be any replicas, sadly.

    Their squad always have awesome names though!

    I keep meaning to upload my fake oman shirt. The local shopkeeper drove all the way to Salalah to get me it.

    Pearler, outfield player Jersey with Adidas stripes, one fila label inside and a puma one further down and a goalkeeper's name printed on the back

    That sounds like absolute gold! Love a terrible fake. I have a Turkey shirt with a Nike logo and Adidas label, but the best fake I have is easily this Uganda shirt. Can you spot what the fakers got wrong?

    The holy grail of fakes for collectors is the Comoros shirt shown at the very bottom of this post which was worn by the actual team and features both the Umbro and Adidas logos embroidered on the front:

    It was reading the Uganda bit that reminded me!

    The other fake I have which I'm quite proud of is a Malawi shirt that I bought from David James' bankruptcy auction: http://www.theglobalobsession.com/2014/11/malawi.html

    Not sure if I mentioned it before but my pal from Auchenblae owns a resort on Bequia which is part of St Vincent and the Gs.

    I take it getting a current one isn’t too tricky? Or rare?

    Oh FFS.

    No shit!! He did alright for himself, place looks amazing...

    SV&G is always a difficult shirt to get - reckon I could always find folk who would want one. Definitely ask yer boy fae the 'Blae if he knows anyone... (And if he can track down any matchworn ones even better!)

    If ever you wanted to listen to a man mystifyingly enthusiastic about international football shirts talking to three other equally mystifyingly enthusiastic men then today is your lucky day!



    *Also features a bonus Forest shirt

    So Joe, are you planning on getting any shirts worn during the covid era. If so you might want to get yourself a biosecure display case to show it off in just to be on the safe side.

    Just as a matter of personal taste. I wish we could go back to cotton shirts.

    I use my replica shirts for gardening and other manual tasks and find them extremely uncomfortable when I get hot.

    How do footballers manage, especially when they play in the heat in Africa, SE Asia and other tropical places? When marathon training and I had to go out in places like Dubai or Singapore, I would go in the dark, early morning in cotton gear; polyester was definitely a non-no.

    Or, in Kuwait in the heat, I ran around an air conditioned indoor tennis court about 184 times, getting dizzy, but not dehydrated.

    Really mate? I find newer, poly shirts must better for getting rid of moisture. I have a few recent Nike shirts & it is like not wearing a shirt, I struggle to wear any kind of cotton shirts when doing any sort of task where I will get hot.
