Goalinton? Dummaldini? When the printing of football shirts goes wrong!
This is the finishing touch that can make a replica soccer jersey very special, but be careful not to overthink it and ALWAYS check your spelling. A Twitter account highlight fan shirt failures detected many Toon related failures!
A scroll through their hilarious timeline has uncovered some incredible and newsworthy cases.
From hilarious misspellings, to big bans like getting the manager’s name on a shirt or (even worse) the name of a goalkeeper on an outfield replica.
Then there are the puns kings, who try to be smart but fail. Paul Dummett is on the verge of becoming a cult Newcastle United player, but even he could have his head in his hands on the “Dummaldini” shirt that we have discovered.
How about the ‘Goalinton’ shirt which was almost certainly printed before Brazilian striker Joelinton made his Newcastle debut.
We even found a replica of Newcastle’s holy grail: the 1995-97 grandfather collar shirt. An object that sells for almost Â£ 200 among collectors. Mint condition, iconic Ginola number 14 on the back, but wait until you see the lettering that appears above.
Perhaps the most incredible example is the most recent. It has to be seen to be believed, so scroll down and drink it.
An amoeba is a type of cell that has the ability to change shape, not a lanky striker who likes to score against Sunderland.
Thug M ruined this rarely seen 2015-16 shirt.
As much as Paul Dummett enjoyed by Newcastle fans, we can’t see this one spreading.
It could be a tribute to Coloccini’s Ashington Fan Club, but it’s more likely a hair reference. It won’t make much money on eBay anyway.
It could be Tim Krul’s dad, or maybe the guy’s family didn’t realize Krul was playing in the goal until they ordered it as a birthday present.
STEVIE G FROM NEWCASTLE
This was discovered on American eBay. Really unhappy. Good luck with the starting price of $ 35.
Getting coach names on the back of shirts never feels good, and it doesn’t help when it comes to a random third kit with a goalie number.
HOW DO YOU SPELL THAT?
A Latin version of the Saunders last name or a red E on the printing machine?
THIS FAMOUS NO.9
You have to ask someone serious questions who would get famous NUFC fan John McCririck’s name on the back. They must have been a big fan because the late horse racing expert even signed it!
It’s unfortunate, and it’s a big reminder that it’s often best to wait until new hires have at least settled in before committing to having their name and number printed.
You have found a Newcastle Hold Grail shirt. Your size. Mint condition. You scroll through the images as you enter your auction on eBay, then …
COME TO NUMBER 13
Dear Santa, for Christmas I would like a Newcastle away shirt with Wilson number 13 on the back.
