Maradona vs England:
An animation made from magazines and newspapers
Our good friend Richard Swarbrick is at it again. This time he’s not only created a new Maradona-centric animation made from football magazines and sports newspapers, but he’s also brought a project with him. It’s called Fantasista, a site dedicated to art and the beautiful game.
Fantasista (the playmaker): 1. (n) A symbol of creativity and invention, of imagination and entertainment, of artistry and magic
Richard is behind Fantasista, but our very own Senior Writer Amy Eustace (writings) is also one of the main contributors. Have a look, spread the word, and - of course - enjoy this beautiful animation focused on one of the most creative men ever to play the game. [Posted by Eric]

Happy 50th Birthday Ruud Gullit ♥
One of the most brilliant players who ever graced the football pitch.
In 1988, as a German fan of Ruud I had to suffer a lot when the Netherlands beat Germany in the EURO and became European Champion on our terrain.
There was always a very tense rivalry between Germany and the Netherlands in football. But I couldn’t help to love Ruud Gullit.
Also, I always admired Ruud’s political work and his outspoken personality.
