Diego Maradona R.I.P – 1960 – 2020

Thursday, 26th November, 2020


Yesterday came the sad news that Diego Maradona passed away due to a cardiac arrest. He was 60 years old.

It was sad to hear. I remember several weeks or so back hearing about him being taken to hospital for a bleed on the brain. He had successful surgery apparently a couple of weeks ago, but yesterday it was reported he died of cardiac arrest.

Michael 84 - Football Shirt Friday Newcastle Shirt

Today is football shirt Friday!

I’ve been wearing football shirts quite a bit lately, but today is a special day. Since it’s officially Football Shirt Friday 2020, I thought I would mark it with a special shirt.

It’s my Newcastle United Away shirt from 1996-97.

This isn’t a new shirt, it’s not a reproduction. It’s my actual shirt I wore in 1996. It still fits!
