TAPIBAW No 6 - Eastwood Town (England)
||To the depths of
Nottinghamshire and Eastwood, the birthplace of the author DH
There you'll find the Badgers of Eastwood Town resplendent in black
and white stripes, and managed by Newcastle fan Bryan Chambers. Our
photo shows club captain, Phil Gould, presumably on a windy
TAPIBAW No 7 - Northallerton Town (England)
||While most of the rest of
the nation was witnessing the final act in the pantomime "Keegan
& The International Beanstalk" a select band of idiots
including your correspondent were witnessing the real clash of the
titans - Northallerton 4 Whickham 1 in the Northern League

good men and true of amateur side Borlange Kickers.
The brief but meteoric success of the Kickers since their formation in 1999
has been temporarily halted, after their 5-0 humiliation by Momentum, but a
good win was recorded against Ambulansen, to put the lads in good heart
before the clash with the infamous Romme Bad Boys - we'll try and bring you
score/casualty updates from that game...
TAPIBAW No 10 - Atletico Mineiro (Brazil)
One of a number of clubs competing for
support in the Brazilian City of Belo Horizonte, Mineiro share a 110,000
stadium with rivals Cruzeiro. Our photo shows the lads before one such local
derby, adopting the familiar "team shot/knee injury" pose.
