Retro Round-Up: 7 June 2013

What a week it's been in the world of football nostalgia, but then again, when is it never a bad week in the world of football nostalgia?

To prove the point, here's our selection of the best retro football stuff we could find on the web from the past week or so, starting with something that we just missed out on when we published last week's round-up...

Just what does it take to refresh a team's club badge? Dotmund has the answer in fabulous cartoon form over at Twohundredpercent...

Carlsberg doesn't do 'rolling back the years', but if they did, here's how they'd get the 1998 World Cup team back together again, courtesy of Who Ate All The Pies...

How things have changed... West Ham celebrate victory over Preston in the 1964 FA Cup Final by filling the cup with... milk? See for yourself over at Footysphere...

Some magnificent pieces of football artwork rightly exhibited for a wider audience in New York, as described by Old School Panini...

We happily acknowledge the likely legends of future nostalgia here at The Football Attic, and to that end we salute The Two Unfortunates' selection for their best kit of 2012/13. Rise up Nottingham Forest fans...

While we're on the subject of great kits, check out this absolute belter from the Brighton & Hove Albion archive - brought to you by The Goldstone Wrap...

Regular Attic fanatics will know that we recently reviewed the first Admiral Book of Football, and here's Paul Bowser writing about his own edition for Got, Not Got...

A lovely tale of Subbuteo playing past and present awaits visitors to The Daisy Cutter...

FootballGaffesGalore continues to find lots of lovely video clips of retro football for us to enjoy. This selection features Birmingham City prominently, but also look out for a rarely seen Sunderland away kit...

And finally, Robbie Fowler's low point in football (or 'high', depending on which way you look at it) is digitised for posterity by 8-Bit Football...
