The 21 Most Ridiculous Pieces of Football Merch Ever Made

Really, supporting a football club is one of the most turbulent relationships that you can have. No matter how bad their behaviour, how terribly they treat you, and how outrageous their demands, back you go week after week, just putting up with whatever is thrown at you.

And you dutifully buy the club shirt each season. And the shorts. And the training top. And the 'casual' apparel. And then the lampshade. And then the swimming inflatables. Hang on... inflatables? Are you serious?

No, even the most dedicated football fan draws the line at ridiculous merchandise somewhere. Here are 21 of the finest examples of utterly ridiculous club-branded products. It's all gone too far.
