There are some familiar versions of modern-day badges (West Ham, Villa, Everton, West Brom), some long abandoned (Wolves, Leeds, Forest, Leicester) and some, like Birmingham City’s that make you wonder: “What the hell is going on here?”

According to the credit, they were made by Umbro International.#

If you like a good old football badge then you should probably buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, and this Xmas’s must-have stocking filler. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
