Paul the octopus, who correctly predicted the winner of the last seven matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, has been honored with a monument at the Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany (of course). Paul’s cremated ashes were placed in a gold-leaf covered urn inside the ball. We should all be so fortunate. RIP Paul. Photo © AP

“What Make’s a Football Club Special?” by Ryan Hubbard
“For most people, their club is the one that they were brought up with. They are the clubbestowed upon them by eager parents not wanting them to grow up and support local rivals.
Increasingly, in many cases they are the club that are given to them by parents who don’t wanttheir children to grow up as glory-hunters (judging by the number of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea fans I know, quite a few failed).
Some people also support their adopted home-town, having previously not followed football.
But what makes a club special?”
On Saturday, January 15th, Juergen Teller will present new photographs, selected for the vitrine in the 032c Workshop. The show “Men and Women” - formerly “Vitrine” - will inaugurate 032c’s latest series of exhibitions, dedicated to new or previously unseen artworks.

“Umbro, in collaboration with the critically acclaimed conceptual designer Aitor Throup, has delved into its extensive archive to launch the Archive Research Project (A.R.P.). Taking inspiration from the iconic Umbro football garments, spanning the last 87 years, A.R.P. represents design innovation and style, whilst maintaining Umbro’s English football tailoring heritage.
Since 2008 Umbro and Aitor Throup have collaborated together, specifically on the re-launch of the England Home kit in 2009 and more recently the England Away kit in 2010. It was during the 2009 kit project that Umbro and Aitor delved into the hertiage of the brand and created an England football shirt that redefined replica by fusing football performance and tailoring.
The new Umbro A.R.P. collection is an innovative collection engineered for football performance and curated for lifestle. It’s about the coming together of the past and the future; reinterpreting classic Umbro designs, such as the 1966 ‘Ramsey’ jacket and the brand’s iconic ‘Aztec’ football shirt as worn by England in ‘66, in a way that shatters the mould of previous construction methods of such garments.
The collection of seven unique garments really come into their own when examined from the inside out, mirroring the ‘inside-out’ design and construction philosophy pioneered by Aitor Throup. This concept is the foundation of the way Throup approaches his work.”
