We’re running a regular series of football card galleries on Sabotage Times, showcasing some old favourites (lookalikes, wrong ‘uns, rarities, stars through the decades…) along with some highly topical arsey comment. Here’s an extract – more where this came from on the links below.

Liam Brady (Ireland), Cyrille Regis (WBA), Peter Noble (Burnley) Sun Soccercards 1979-80
Back by popular demand, here’s an object lesson in how not to treat your heroes – three more of the 1,000 Sun Soccercards produced during 1978 and 1979, all featuring approximate likenesses banged out in one long night by the newspaper’s ‘court scene’ artist.
Swindon and Burnley legend Noble scored every one of the 28 penalties he took in his career spanning 1964-83.
In the ‘80s, Arsenal giant Brady went on to play for Juventus, Sampdoria, Inter, Ascoli and West Ham.
And the inspirational Big Cyrille, capped five times for England, was awarded an MBE in 2008. Five minutes’ worth of felt-pen scrawl, and still more than enough Cyrille to get @GotNotGot follower @Shampps all hot under the collar!
