Richard Debenham, whose work we tipped you to a few weeks back, has added four more soccer greats to his growing portfolio of classy posters. Behold: Matthaus, Bergkamp, Zidane, and Scholes.
This painting, entitled “Supporting Manchester,” was obviously painted by James Milroy, who has possibly never been to a professional football match, or even seen one on TV. The only way both Manchester United and Manchester City fans would be this happy and civil to each other would be at the …
It’s Valentine’s Day, and you’re a soccer fan, so what better way to show your devotion to your beloved than with a set of Bundesliga cards? Featuring Breno, Michael Skibbe, Felix Magath (disturbingly), and more.
Using the iconic elements of the shirts of teams you know – Argentina, Boca Juniors, Club America, Germany, etc., etc. – Ignacio Ponce created a series of graphics to highlight their simplicity.
We’re such suckers for posters. These, from Richard Debenham, are among the best we’ve seen. And how can you go wrong with Ronaldo, Eusebio, Shearer, Iniesta, and Van Basten for subjects?
At KCKRS, we like cool stuff, especially if it’s about footy. We like to celebrate talented people who celebrate the beautiful game. Basically, if it’s creative, artistic, and you can slap Leo Messi’s face on it, we’ll probably find it interesting.

I’m a big music fan as well as a soccer guy, and so I bugged our editor Chris to let me write about music on his football site until he got sick of me and said yes to shut me up. This is the first edition of our (my) very …
If there’s one thing we can really get behind here at KCKRS, it’s unhealthy and all-consuming obsession with the minutiae of being a soccer fan. And this guy has it. Boy, does he have it.
