The agony of watching Portugal and the Netherlands, my two teams, go at it:
Brother: I’m not sure if the Dutch know they need to win by two. They certainly aren’t playing like it.
Me: I think they misunderstood what ‘group of death’ means. The team with no points does NOT advance…

Brother: I think this leads to another HSPN feature: what players do before the game to prepare.
Brother: If you told me Del Bosque was a teacher at Hogwarts, I’d believe it. I swear, with that crest and that tie, if what he was yelling out was ‘Ten points for Gryffindor,’ I’d totally believe it.
Bonus awesome photo: Rogers the caterer offers a free dinner to all customers at his Chalk Farm Road restaurant when (not if) Chelsea win the FA Cup, circa 1939.
One of my favorite vintage Chelsea-related photographs: a beautifully composed, perfectly encapsulated narrative, with examples from the golden age of British graphic design.
