Retro Round-up: 5 July 2013

Hello, football nostaglia fans, and welcome to another round-up of the best vintage footy material that's appeared on the web during the past week.

As ever, we invite you to peruse the items listed below and also send us your own suggestions for things you've seen on the web in the last seven days. So now, the good stuff...

Who Ate All The Pies finds a magnificent 25-minute YouTube of George Best appearing as the subject of ITV's 'This Is Your Life...'

The first Arsenal team to break from the shackles of 'kick and rush'... Old School Panini assesses Arsene Wenger's vintage team in sticker form...

Quite simply perfection in football kit form: memories of Peru over at Footysphere...

Desmond Morris' book 'The Soccer Tribe' makes for a fascinating read - so says Giles Metcalfe for Got, Not Got...

Some lovely promotional material for The Seagull Line - Brighton's answer to ClubCall - over at The Goldstone Wrap...

A World Cup of your very own! (Well, a replica at least...) This Jules Rimet trophy in sterling silver gilt could be yours for only £10,615 if you place the winning bid on eBay...

Finally, our Round-Up last week arrived just too early to include this great clip from Football Gaffes Galore on YouTube featuring Muhammad Ali's personal message for Brian Clough. It's featured regularly on clip shows, but rarely in unedited form as seen here!

Last but not least, a polite reminder that you've got just a few days left to log your vote in our Final to decide The Worst Thing About Modern Football. It's currently neck-and-neck between 'Greed In General' and 'Rebranding / Ignoring club History' so your vote could be critical! If you haven't taken part yet, get along quickly to our Worst of Modern Football voting page... destiny is in your hands!
