Manufacturers the world over have always realized that virtually any product can be sold in large numbers by simply incorporating on it a logo of popular football clubs that have million of fans.
The latest example of this clever marketing trick becoming an instant hit was affirmed when a French condom company flashed witty versions of logos of big Premier League clubs on condom wrappers.
Giving a whole new meaning to “Come on you Spurs” now, the Tottenham logo on Callvin’s condom wrappers has seen the iconic cockerel being replaced with a raunchy version that is surely going to sell in large numbers.
Apart from “Tottenham Hotspot”, other clubs that have the honour of having their crests featuring on the company’s condom wrappers include the likes of “Loverpool”, “Chel-Semen”, “Men-United” and even “Arse-Anal”.

Run a simple internet search on Philippe Coutinho and almost every story relating to him will be about his transfer move to Spanish giants Barcelona this summer.
Although Coutinho’s name has been linked with Barcelona for a very long time now (he was seen to be an ideal replacement for talismanic midfielder Xavi at a point of time), recent rumours of his Brazilian compatriot Neymar showing interest in PSG have only rekindled Barcelona’s interest in Coutinho.
Reds boss Jürgen Klopp had been reassuring when asked about the 25-year old’s transfer to Camp Nou, but latest media reports suggest that even he won’t be able to resist a massive bid in the ball park of £89 million.
Liverpool fans, understandably, have not been able to take this news with ease. But while they have been suffering one meltdown after another, their playmaker has been busy getting himself a fresh haircut!
Check out how Coutinho is coolly dealing with the current situation below –
Leeds United are on the prowl for newer additions in the transfer market. But this short clip may just persuade them to look within their own academy first.
For a club who is known to nurture young talents, here’s another chance to substantiate that reputation, for Jamie Shackleton looks bound for bigger things after a wondrous goal in a game recently.
In an U-23 game against Tadcaster Albion, the Leeds forward equalised for his team after embarking on a magical run that culminated into an amazing goal which has sent the Leeds United fans in a delirium.
Jamie, after a confident run into the box, unleashes a curling effort into the top corner to level the scores at 1-1. Such is the finesse in the effort that the goalkeeper could only watch helplessly. Just watch the clip again!
A pure Leeds academy product, Jamie was tipped to be the cream of the crop after his promising displays since his entry into the U-23 side. But here in this game, in this very moment, the Leeds youngster has given a glimpse of his prodigious talent, something that Leeds must take note of if they haven’t already.
The fans though, have already begun a campaign of sorts to get him signed by the first team.

This pre season , just like the previous pre seasons was filled with kit leaks left, right and center. The list of teams that have had their strips leaked on social media is endless. The notable ones till now have been Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and City.
We have seen kits getting leaked through social media, but recently, Chelsea’s third kit fell victim to a whole new way of getting leaked. The club’s alternate kit was found on sale in a store before the official launch and the fans were able to catch an eyeful of this new strip before the designated unveiling.
The kit is all black and have the Chelsea crest embroidered on the left, while the new kit manufacturer Nike’s famous swoosh is on the right.
The fans have had mixed reactions to this new kit as some of them replied saying that this is one of the worst kits they have seen, so bad that they even compared it to piece of rag, while some of the supporters said that they’ve seen even worse.
Supporters will hope the new kits bring some luck to the team and help them club have a successful 2017-18 season.

2017-18 is expected to be a big season for West Ham, who will look forward to improving their tally from their last campaign and finish a little higher this time.
Being active in the transfer window this summer, the Hammers have roped in the likes of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautović and, most recently, Javier Hernández to add greater depth to their squad.
While all their signings are expected to have a big impact in their own ways, fans seem to be most excited about what Zabaleta will bring to the club.
The 32-year old arrived in London after Manchester City released him earlier last month. The defender’s career spans across 15 years spent at three clubs as well as his national team.
And it is this experience that seems to be just what West Ham needed, as it appears that Zabaleta has already started stepping up to lead his team, even in training.
Check out what an all-West Ham journalist had to say regarding Zabaleta’s leadership skills below –
The gross shortage of food and water has given way to frugal consumption by people living in areas hit with such crisis. But what would you say about the frugality of football jerseys? Confused? Just see the image below.
Spotted during Tottenham Hotspur’s ICC Champions Cup match against Roma yesterday, a fan was pictured tucked away in last year’s home kit like many others. But what made him stand out from the rest was the alteration he did to it.
As it could be seen in the image, the man has stuck up the tape in the shape of a zero besides the printed number 2 and also changed the name by scribbling the name ‘Dele’ over what was presumably Walker before.
Fantastic work, check it out below –
Toon alert for the the Chelsea man
The Belgian has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and recent online activity seems to suggest that Newcastle is his favourite destination. The front man has followed multiple Newcastle United players on Twitter including Christian Atsu, Javier Manquillo and Chancel Mbemba.
Batshuayi is yet to nail down a permanent spot in the Chelsea lineup and with the big money arrival of Alvaro Morata, chances of a starting berth look slimmer going into the new season.
No guarantees of playing time coupled with increasing competition for the National Team, it’s high time that the prospect decides on his future. Toon army are back in the Premier League and can provide him the perfect opportunity.
The former Marseille man is a composed finisher, showcasing his eye for goal in preseason and Tyne side will be brimming with excitement if any deal can be hammered out between them and Chelsea. With the player seemingly keen on the move, Rafael Benitez will get few better potential prospects for his forward line at the Magpies.

Reigning Europa League champions Manchester United have made an encouraging start to their pre-season, having won all their games thus far. The latest casualty at their hands were none other than European champions Real Madrid, whom they defeated 2-1 on penalties.
The video clip of Eric Bailly and his sterling display on the day shows there’s a lot more for the Red Devils to rejoice about than just the victory.
The Ivory Coast star was in red hot form, a thorn in the face of Los Blancos with all his defensive exploits. The clip more than just establishes a case for him. For the 23-year old looked to be in an inspired form.
For once, he could be seen intercepting a cross, whereas the next moment, he is attempting a block. The Spaniards were clearly throwing the kitchen sink over their Premier League counterparts, but Bailly was there to save Mou’s men their beacon.
The sheer vigilance and vision of the game from him was commendable, and the fans just can’t shut eulogizing about him.
Bailly joined United last season from Villareal and hit the ground running as he stamped his authority in Mourinho’s defensive set-up. But against Real Madrid did he truly prove his mettle. The immense talent that he embodies.
Manchester United have set their sights on greater things this season, and if they do succeed on all fronts, Bailly might have a huge say in it.

Naby Keita has been incessantly linked with a move to Liverpool and it seems the Guinean is pressing all the right buttons in order to push through a move to the Premier League side. Keita, who was spotted posing with a Liverpool fan after a friendly match was the success story of last season in Bundesliga, finishing as Runner up.
After a recent video of his training bust up with team mates went viral, indicating that not all is plain sailing between the Red Bull management and player; stopping for a quick selfie with a Kopite will add to the speculation of his departure.
Jurgen Klopp is looking for reinforcements to compete in the Champions League and the dynamic midfielder fits the bill. However, the Bundesliga outfit’s hard stance has proved to be a major debacle till now.
The Anfield side have submitted multiple bids for the Guinean only to be rebuffed in their attempts. A formal transfer request by the player will go on further to clear his intentions, whether he favours a move and if that is the case, the Bundesliga contenders would be foolish to hold on to their asset who clearly does not believe in his future prospects at the club.
Check out the picture of Keita with a Liverpool fan below –
It’s us, the fans of the beautiful game that make the players big. Without us, they would be playing in stadiums with empty stands, and that doesn’t really sound like a fun idea.
Players who wait to sign autographs and interact with the fans are a rare breed, and Paul Pogba’s latest gesture has proved that such humble players still do exist.
According to a renowned US based journalist Pilib De Brun, Pogba waited for almost every single fan in the stadium to take pictures with them and sign jerseys after Utd’s game against Real Madrid.
The fans have absolutely fallen in love with how down to earth their French midfielder is and this display of affection goes on to show that he has the United DNA instilled in him.
The 24-year old is already a fan favourite for his charismatic attitude and the famous ‘dab’ celebration, but this particular act will be etched in the fan’s memories for a long time to come.
Pogba has been in fine form lately and will hope to perform well and prove his worth next season.
