Christmas is almost upon us and that can mean only one thing; a mad dash around the high street to grab whatever old rubbish you can in exchange for hundreds of your hard-earned pounds so your loved ones can glance at the gifts you've get them for approximately ten seconds before never thinking of them again. It really is a magical time of year.
Of course for the football fan in your life there is an entire sub-section of absolutely useless branded items you could buy them.
After all, what better way is there to display loyalty to a club than through, say, a mug manufactured in Asia for 5p and sold on to your family member for 1000% more? Who doesn't love rampant commercialisation in football eh?
But, be warned dear reader, amongst the tasteful club ties and leather posing pouches lie some absolute monstrosities that someone may one day look at and think have your name written all over it.
So if anything this is a handy guide to keep for around this time of year; use it as a warning to your friends and family; buy me any of these items and we won't speak again.
