We caught up with Aston Villa fan Matt Whitehouse (The Whitehouse Address) to talk; dressing like Dean Saunders, Riquelme Argentina shirts and 5 class goals.
What was your first football shirt?
First football shirt was Aston Villa’s 1993/94 home shirt made by Asics. It had a buttoned up collar and Whitehouse 9 on the back. Dean Saunders was my idol so there was no other choice for me.
What is your favourite football shirt?
There are many shirts I’ve loved. Recently I have really like Germany’s away kit, the one they wore in the 2014 World Cup. PSG and Bayern’s away kits this season are very nice also.
But I do like the more retro type shirts. I love the Brazil 1970 and also a big lover of the 1998 World Cup France shirt. Perhaps my favourite shirt, however was Argentina’s away shirt from 2006.
The colour was great and I think of Riquelme in that shirt. Guess I like the national team shirts more than club shirts, perhaps a reason for that is modern sponsors, whose logo’s often ruin a nice shirt!
What is your favourite goal?
My favourite goal? That is a tough question and there are so many to chose from, so I am going to have to give you 5;
No. 4 Cambiasso Argentina vs Serbia Jun 2006
