They Also Play in Black & White.....

Part 6

TAPIBAW No 26 - Rosenborg (Norway)

With Norway apparently the latest country to come under the United spotlight for sourcing new players, what better time to highlight the black and whites of Rosenborg, from the city of Trondheim.

The Rosenborg website also provide this handy guide to team positions, 
in Norwegian....

= attackers
Midtbane = midfielders
Forsvar = defenders
Keeper = erm.....goalkeeper  

TAPIBAW No 27 - Asker (Norway)

We've broken with the usual tradition by staying put in a country for another TAPIBAW entry, Division Two outfit Asker. 

Located to the South of Oslo, when the locals aren't cheering on their heroes, some of them indulge in the local sport of ice cutting, which is exactly what you think it is... 



TAPIBAW No 28 - Dorchester Town (England)

Not only do Doctor Marten's League side Dorchester share our black and white home shirt style, they are also nicknamed the Magpies.

Established in 1880 (and therefore pre-dating our amalgamated mob by more than a decade), Dorchester's principal other link with Newcastle is Ian Baird, the much-travelled striker who had a brief spell at Avenue Stadium recently, before moving on to Farnborough.

Late news!:  Unconfirmed reports that while this photo has been displayed on, Dorchester have completed the signing of the uncrowned king of underachievement, Wayne Fereday !!

TAPIBAW No 29 - CD Castellon (Spain)

A double up this time out, as we highlight the Spanish club of Castellon, and their traditional black and white garb of a few seasons ago (see above photo.)

Castellon were the first club of Gaizka Mendieta, the Valencia midfielder who recently moved to Lazio for the staggering sum of 29m, a record for a Spaniard.  


The men from the Municipal de Catalla stadium have taken to wearing the following variation recently, our model being the severe-looking Javi Sanchis. 

TAPIBAW No 30 - Varzim SC (Portugal)

Indulging in whatever the Portuguese equivalent of a pile on is, the representatives of the town of Povoa de Varzim celebrate another goal.
The Legia A new boys have had a mixed start to the season, enjoying a 2-2 draw with big boys Benfica, but slipping 2-0 this weekend to fellow promoted side Vitoria Setubal - now there's a name from the past.....
