Tufspin revolutionary swivel boots

Imagine the look of shock on Norman Hunter’s face next week, when your swivel boots have carried you to your Division One debut against Leeds United. One second you will be facing away from goal, the next you will have magically rotated to volley home, with a sharp crack, past Gareth Sprake.

When he has finally located you in the mud after your startling acrobatics, the hard stopper will look green around the gills – with envy at your swivel boots.

Billy Bremner will be sickened by your goalscoring heroics, making animated gestures toward the touchline – probably suggesting a substitution to try and counter your deadly Tufspins.

Arsenal boss Bertie Mee was paid to say: “This boot is likely to live up to claims made for it – increased speed on the turn, fatigue reduction, injury reduction.”

Thanks to David Tossell for sending in the ad from Goal. Ball never really wore the swivel boots. He wore Adidas boots painted white.
