World Cup football banners: A visual treat! Part V
One more for the Brazil fans!
Lots of action in the Banner.
On one side Maradonna kissing the hand of Ronaldinho and saying “Oh God, Now even if I die its ok!”. Next to that one Argentina player begging to one Brazil guy, “Please don’t thrash us any more” and another guy telling “Guys, lets go, its Brazil”.
In the middle there is this 6 pointers on why they like Brazil, all statistics on how many times Brazil defeated Argentina!

World Cup football banners: A visual treat! Part IV
We cheer for India!
It’s not that only Brazil, Argentina and other leading Football playing nations have banners and fan clubs. India also has some supporters. During my trip I saw two interesting banners supporting India. They sincerely hope that one day Indian football will make it to FIFA World Cup.
The wording are funny, ” We want to play!we also have boots and jerseys!”
. The tag line says ” World cup committee is waiting for them” day dreaming?
Now lets wait for that the day when India will play in FIFA World Cup, JAI HO!
World Cup football banners: A visual treat! Part III
A set of banners for hard core Argentina fans.
Now here I see a clear case of inspiration from a recently released Malayalam movie, Pokkiriraja, starring Mammooty and Prithviraj
And look at Messi, also in similar traditional Malayalee clothing of Shirt and Mundu (dhothi)!
Emulating your legendary coach (Diego)in football is okay, but clothing also?
Now the connection, Mammootty is one of all time super stars of Malayalam cinema, same with Maradona, who is one of the greatest in the game of football.
Prithviraj is the young super hero of Malayalam cinema and Messi is no different, is the new super hero of Football and (2010 World Cup?)

Location: Chathamangalam, Calicut district,
Theme: Inspired from the Malayalam saying “1000 Kozhimutteykku Ara Kada”, a rough translation “half quail’s egg is equivalent to a 1000 Hen’s egg “ , the statement underlines the fact that quail’s egg is far more nutritious than a Hen’s egg. Now to the World Cup and the banner from Brazil fans.
Headline: 1000 Messikku ara Kaka, means
“Half Kaka is enough for a 1000 Messi(s)”!
Now how is that?
World Cup football banners: A visual treat! Part I
During my trip to Malabar I saw at least 500-600 banners,took photos of almost 300. Every 500 metres you can at least see 2 banners, one for Brazil and another for Argentina, almost all the towns in Malabar have their fan clubs. These clubs (sometimes individuals)spend huge amount of money for printing and mounting these banners. Argentina and Brazil have the maximum fan following. I picked up some interesting Banners. Some very creative,some have high voltage dialogues (thanks to Malayalam cinema)and some vulgar too.
So this is my first pick. An Argentina fan club’s banner for sure. Argentina is shown as the Lion; don’t miss the Brazil,shown as a donkey. Italy as a bull, Holland a rabbit, Germany a horse.
The headline says “The king of 1986 (The great Maradona) and cubs are getting out of African forest”. The baseline “This Lion (Argentina) will pounce upon his preys as soon as the whistle is blown at Johannesburg”.
I was busy taking pictures of this banner and a guy came and said there is an another banner nearby, much more bigger and interesting than this one.He took me to near by junction.There I saw a huge Brazil banner, then realized the guy was a hard core Brazil fan! He smiled and said “We have already won 5 World Cups, so a bigger banner was required”.
