We’re very excited to say that we’ve got another great competition for you this week. The nice people at Art of Football are feeling generous and they want to give one of you a very special gift; £25 of vouchers for their wares. And what wares they are!
They make t-shirts and prints that commemorate some of the most exciting moments in football history, even for those of us who support rubbish football teams. I’m actually wearing my Southend-Winning-The-Play-Offs-On-Penalties shirt today.
We asked them to explain why their work was so special. They just smiled and took a sip of their tea.
“Our hand crafted designs try to emulate the beauty of those split second moments, the moments you never forget,” they said, gently placing the cup back on the saucer with the sort of tender care you’ll see in all of their products. “We look to capture the energy, passion and euphoria that erupts from that one magical kick of a football. We only produce a limited number of each design, so your T shirts, like any good piece of art, are exclusive and completely original.”
That was good enough for us.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
Well, we’re very glad you asked. We’d like to know what Tim Sherwood will do next. Where will he go? How shall he live? How much banter will there be? We’d like you to draw Tim Sherwood in his next role. We’d like you to draw him in biro. You can do it on the back of an envelope, a receipt, a post-it note or even, if you prefer, a plain sheet of paper. The one that makes us laugh the most will get the money.
When you’ve finished your masterpiece, simply tweet: “Dear, @thesetpieces, I am the ghost of Tim Sherwood’s future.” Oh, and remember to attach the picture. We’ll announce the winner in the letters page on Monday, November 2.
