My favourite football shirt: Matt Whitehouse

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?

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?
