Football’s Top 10 Streakers!

Mind your helmet

Well that got your attention didn’t it? Sadly, as much as I would like to write those types of articles, this is a family website and we ought to keep the smut to a minimum.

But, or should that be butt I can tell you that there will be a new kind of streaker at this year’s World Cup Finals – a tiny one.

Yes this is Freeview HD’s got to become a classic ad to entice you to sign up for their service and marvel at a very small man protecting his modesty with an extremely long beard.

Who can forget some of more memorable demonstrations of this very British tradition at football grounds the length and breadth of the country. Who could forget the Riverside Stadium in 1997 when a rather attractive young woman dressed in a Santa outfit invaded the pitch during Middlesbrough’s derby match with Newcastle and flashed her baubles at serial-prankster and Spurs legend Paul Gascoigne?

Or even when German club FC Hansa Ruslock successfully sued three streakers who disrupted their 2003 match against Hertha Berlin to recoup the €20,000 they were fined by the German FA for failing to maintain adequate security at their ground.

Moments of naked ambition or just bare-faced cheek, the arrival of a streaker is now so commonplace that it has become a barely-noticeable break in proceedings. We will never change in our fascination with this light-hearted attempt to amuse thousands of spectators by taking ones clothes off and it shall always remain a much-loved part of the beautiful game.
