Paris Saint-Germain’s Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic jokes with Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian defender Maxwell during the TV show “Canal Football Club” on May 19, 2013 in Paris, as part of the 21th edition of the UNFP (French National Professional Football players Union) trophy ceremony.
I have been waiting for pictures of the Ibraraptor and Saint Teddybear Maxwell celebrating together! if anyone should happen to see others, please send them my way? I always have time for Maxwell’s beautiful face.
The above pictures are of Dick, Kerr’s Ladies F.C.
Dick, Kerr and Company was a locomotive and tramcar manufacturer. The company believed that organised sport would lift wartime morale. After the women beat their male coworkers, they created a team. They went from city to city, playing charity events and attracting large crowds. Up until the FA banned women’s football at its members grounds on 5 December 1921, “due of concerns that women were not physically able to play football, but there was a belief that the popularity of the team made some in the men’s game feel threatened.” This did not stop them from playing. The ladies traveled outside of FA jurisdiction and played in many countries across Europe and even going on tour in the USA. Dick, Kerr’s Ladies F.C. were one of the pioneer teams of women’s football that should always be remembered.
