Retro Round-Up - 10 May 2013

Greetings, everyone, and welcome to another review of this week's best blog posts and other web-related curiosities from the world of football nostalgia.

If The Football Attic isn't enough to sustain you, let this pick of the last seven days be your saviour...

It's easy to forget what a parlous state Manchester City were in not so long ago, but Twohundredpercent is on hand to remind us about the dark days of the early '80s at Maine Road...

Footysphere has some lovely illustrations that were used to promote the venues used in the 1958 World Cup Finals...

An elated Bob Wilson features in one of the many photos showing Inter Cities Fairs Cup action over at Who Ate All The Pies...

Brighton & Hove Albion hate it when the year ends in '3', as highlighted nicely over at The Goldstone Wrap...

A comprehensive review of the 1985 Freight Rover Trophy final might give hope to Wigan fans before Saturday's big match at Wembley - catch it over at Spirit of Mirko...

Notts County fans might be interested to see The Vintage Football Club's great French-language profile of former star Rachid Harkouk...

More French fun as Old School Panini tells us about the role of prostitutes in the political career of Brazilian legend Carlos Alberto...

Plans to build a two-metre high Subbuteo referee in Cambridge meet with a dismissive response from the FA, according to the BBC News website...

Staying with the BBC, this week's World Football Phone-In podcast spends much of its time talking about football stickers and even gives us a mention along the way... (Downloadable for a limited period only)

And as it's FA Cup week, here's one for Arsenal fans - a match-worn tracksuit top from the 1979 Final currently on sale on eBay.
