All I want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague away kit… or The Boot Room Christmas Gift Guide pt 4

December 12, 2017

There are now just 12 days to go until the ruddy faced, obese and bearded fella (and we don’t mean Neil Ruddock!) breaks into your house via the chimney (or with a ‘magic’ key for those without a chimney) and leaves presents after downing a beer (or milk) and a mince pie. So, with time running out to order those final Christmas presents before the inevitable postal delays caused by the sheer volume of parcels going through the system we’re wrapping up our 2017 Gift Guide.


1.  Les Bleus socks by TRiCKETT – £8.00

Yet another pair of football inspired socks from the good folk at TRiCKETT. These ones are based on the classic French shirt from either 1984-86 or 1998-99 you decide. Or if you are a Tractor Boy then you could feasibly name these ‘Zondervan’s’ and claim that these twere inspired by the Ipswich Town kit from 1984-86 either way you’ll be getting a great pair of socks!

Who wore it best?

2. Portrait prints –  by Stanley Chow – from £12.50 (A4 size)

Illustrator extraordinaire Stanley Chow has created more than 70 football themed prints featuring the great and the good of the beautiful game. He’s covered everyone from Arsene to Zidane!




Stanley has limited his range of prints to just football – take the time to explore all the other great prints he’s created of musicians, actors, politicians, historical figures, street scenes and many many more!

3. UK Grounds typography t-shirt from COPA  – €34.95 (approx £30)




Also available in Black


4.  The Football Shirts Book – a connoisseurs guide  by Neal Heard – ISBN: 9781785036651 RRP £14.99

Now we love vintage football shirts pretty much as much as we love vintage boots and this book features some of the best shirts ever. Originally published as A Lovers Guide to Football Shirts (ISBN: 9780995477407) this book is packed with images of some of the most iconic and beautiful shirts known to man.

WARNING: Owning this book may be bad for your bank balance as you’re bound to see a shirt that you must have and then the hunt will begin!





5.  Legends in dots print – £9.99 from Box2BoxFootball

These unframed A3 sized prints are a real bargain at £9.99. There are a number of footballing legends to choose from including Zizou, Messi, Pele, Bergkamp and our favourite Maradona

maradona dots

Box2BoxFootball also have a great range of other football themed prints in their store along with other goodies!


6. Dukla Prague away shirt from TOFFS – £35.00

No football related Christmas gift guide can ever really be considered as complete without the inclusion of thanks to Half Man Half Biscuit, the fabled Dukla Prague away shirt! So here you go…


And just in case you’re not aware of the relevance take a look at the video below:


Stocking filler idea:

Pretty much anything from the ClassicFootballShirts clearance section! Their extensive clearance section contains everything from shirt numbers, flip flops and flat caps to mini figures, snoods and much more – oh and obviously there are loads of shirts and shorts etc to choose from! You can save a further 10% on anything from ClassicFootballShirts by entering CFSPJ10 at checkout!



Secret Santa ( maximum £5 budget):

Raffle ticket to win a 2017-18 Juan Mata Premier League matchworn shirt! £5


The guys at ClassicFootballShirts have partnered with Juan Mata’s CommonGoal charity initiative to give you the chance to win a signed matchworn Juan Mata Manchester United shirt. The shirt was worn earlier this season when United beat Crystal Palace with Mata scoring one of the goals. Tickets are priced at £5 each and all proceeds go to CommonGoal

The raffle ends on Saturday 16th December and the winner will be announced via social media on this date!
