Matt Whitehouse’s first Aston Villa shirt will remind you of Dean Saunders

We caught up with Aston Villa fan Matt Whitehouse (The Whitehouse Address) to talk; dressing like Dean Sauders, Riquelme Argentina shirts and 5 class goals.

What was your first football shirt?

1993 Aston Villa shirt

First football shirt was Aston Villa’s 1993/94 home shirt. As a young kid Dean Saunders was my idol, so had Whitehouse 9 on the back.

What is your favourite football shirt?

2006 Argentina squad

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? There are many yet my top 5 are;

No. 5 Ronaldinho Barcelona vs Real Madrid Nov 2005

No. 4 Cambiasso Argentina vs Serbia Jun 2006

No. 3 Lionel Messi – Barcelona vs Real Madrid Feb 2012

No. 2 Diego Maradona Argentina vs England (the dribble) 1986 World Cup

No. 1 Zidane Real Madrid vs Leverkusen 2002 Champions League Final
