David Beckham to live the Herbalife at LA Galaxy

Jerseyfinal_2Health firm Herbalife are the latest business to buy into Brand Beckham after becoming the new shirt sponsors of LA Galaxy. The company flogs weight loss and nutritional products, despite a logo and name which make it seem like the friendly face of marijuana dealing!

Herbalife has signed a deal worth between $3.5 million and $5 million every season until 2011 with Beckham's new team, which should cover his wages for a couple of hours! LA Galaxy are the second MLS side to take advantage of new rules allowing them to sell shirt sponsorship. [Via SoccerFiesta, Rob Parker]

Well, KitBag are selling the Barca shirt, complete with first ever sponsor and Ronaldinho name/number printed on the back, for £49.99. So if you're a Liverpool fan, you might want to purchase one tomorrow like claiming a scalp... or, Everton fans might want to rub in a savage beating. Either way, one half of Merseyside should be interested in this come the morning. [Mof Gimmers]

Kit Parade: Lille

LilleLille will play host to Manchester United in the Champions League tonight. And if you put your money on red this evening it will be the casino-sponsored French outfit rather than the Red Devils you are backing. The kit is manufactured by French brand Airness, who you are most likely to know from supplying Fulham's kit. Indeed the shirt is pretty much the Fulham one in different colours.

Kit Parade: Ronaldo 99 AC Milan shirt

AC Milan's new signing Ronaldo made his debut in front of a half-empty San Siro yesterday. The man we quite cruelly dubbed Rotundo during last summer's World Cup came close to scoring against Livorno in his brand spanking new number 99 shirt. The shirt is available to buy complete with Ronny's name and number from AC Milan's online shop, although - with a delicious irony - XL shirts are not yet available! Click here to buy it.

Kit Parade: Lithuania

LithuaniaOne of the more unusual ties thrown up by this week's round of international friendlies is Lithuania versus Mali. If you are a collector of obscure football shirts or simply a Hearts fan, you might like to purchase the Lithuanian kit! This is the side that held world champions Italy to a 1-1 draw last September. And this despite the fact that their shirt looks like it belongs with an amateur ice hockey team with poor taste! Click here to buy it for £39.99. [Rob Parker]

England's new kit is rubbish

England_kitLadies and Gents, let Pies be the first to pass judgement on the new England home shirt.

It's shit.

This really is the worst England shirt that Pies have ever seen, and can only hope that this is some terrible mistake. Surely the blind morons designers at Umbro can come up with something a bit cleaner and more universal than this monstrosity? Click on the mage to see it closer up... if you're mental enough.
