Retro Round-Up: 21 June 2013

Whether your week's been good or bad, it always ends well in the world of football nostalgia thanks to The Football Attic's Retro Round-Up!

As ever, we've scoured as much of the web as the 15-minute window in our schedules will allow to bring you the best football nostalgia from the last week. Let's crack on, shall we?

When Saturday Comes chooses Red Star Paris as the subject of its Badge of the Week - a bright star that's long since fallen, you might say...

If books containing facts and statistics about German football light your candle, check out this post by Soccer Nostalgia - you'll get plenty of decent recommendations from it...

Always keep your garden clear - that's our advice after reading this story about the lost gates of St. James' Park, as detailed by Terrace Life...

A set of nine replica World Cup footballs, one from each tournament between 1970 and 2002 - yours to buy on eBay for US$1,800...
