  1. Has anyone seen this ball before?

     

    ?

     

    Apologies I meant to insert a picture which was too big earlier...it seems a smaller version also did not show up. How can I insert pictures from my laptop?

     

    There might be an easier way (which I don't know), but you could upload the picture(s) to an image hoster and then use the URL to display the picture(s).

  2. The name "The Albert" is due to a funny peculiarity of Cockney (a variety spoken in London) or its rhyming slang feature, respectively:

     

    "Rhyming Slang phrases are derived from taking an expression which rhymes with a word and then using that expression instead of the word. For example the word "look" rhymes with "butcher's hook". In many cases the rhyming word is omitted - so you won't find too many Londoners having a "bucher's hook" at this site, but you might find a few having a "butcher's".

    The rhyming word is not always omitted so Cockney expressions can vary in their construction, and it is simply a matter of convention which version is used."

     

    examples:

     

    English: Feet Rhymes with: Plates of meat Cockney: Plates

    English: Teeth Rhymes with: Hampstead Heath Cockney: Hampsteads

    English: Arms Rhymes with: Chalk Farms Cockney: Chalk Farms

    English: Head Rhymes with: Loaf of bread Cockney: Loaf

    So, in this case: The Albert Hall rhymes with soccer ball turns into The Albert.

  3. I'm also looking for the Uefa Super cup ball 2010 but this one has a lot of wrinkles and i hate that.

     

    I'm with you. I would probably accept some minor creases, given the Super Cup Matchballs are pretty rare, but this one looks terrible. What do you have to do with or rather to it to make it look like this?!

    I'm sorry, but in my eyes it's virtually worthless.
