Club shop tat – Midlands Style

with 2 comments

Club shops are terrible. Although they might contain the odd gem of a tshirt or a jacket which is wearable, the majority are stuffed with tshirts emblazened with awful logos and slogans, and tshirts in mens sizes which only a child could get away with.

It’s pretty stunning to see what club shops can get away with selling. There is so much of this rubbish about that to write one post about it would be underplaying the situation. Heres this weeks midlands round up.

Birmingham City Hard Hat

At only £30, why not create a new trend down on the building site with this beautiful painted hardhat. For £30 you get a hardhat, which is sprayed blue and white with a badge glued on. Minimalist chic at its best. Great protection for when the wife is throwing stuff at you during an argument, or for wearing down the pub to amuse your mates. Alternatively, wear if sitting in the Main Stand during strong winds.

Aston Villa Ladies Wallet

Nothing shouts style like this wallet. Would look great when carried in a Tesco carrier bag. Further reduced to £2, includes a useful pocket for those claret ribbons for your hair.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Toothbrush

As you can tell when you reach Wolverhampton, not many of these toothbrushes could have been used. Fun for all the family with the magnetic element. Why not play stick the toothbrush to the radiator, for hours of family fun? It’s cheaper than watching them lose at home anyway

Walsall Door Hanger

Want a cheeky bit of nookie without the kids barging in? Put this door hanger up, the perfect way to avoid awkward questions

Coventry City Oven Glove

Struggling to find the perfect wedding anniversary gift? Fancy getting a divorce? Get this beautiful high quality oven mitt. For only £6.99, show your partner your feelings for them. Nothing says “I Love You” quite like it.

    • I think my new mission should be to try and collect one piece of tat from all 92 league club shops! Not sure players count though 😀
