DAVID BATTY, LEEDS UNITED, 1992 - WELL OFFSIDE PHOTOGRAPHY

£40.00

David Batty won the league with Leeds, refused a winners medal when he was at Blackburn because he felt he hadn’t contributed and, apparently, was often made to drink a raw egg and sherry by Billy Bremner when he was a young lad at Leeds. He was a fucking brilliant player, technically sound, great engine, and hard as coffin nails. He was also a wind-up merchant, and for some reason decided to combine all of this into a meaningless preseason friendly against Sampdoria, from which this photo is taken. He made Roberto Mancini blow his top, twice, caused a brawl when he sent Marco Lanna over the advertising hoardings, embarrassed the same player with a delicious drag back, and went through a repertoire of winks, shoves, and sly digs that, when all is said and done, you just have to applaud. 

Choose from A2, A3 and A4. Absolutely spectacular fine art prints. Hahnemühle Photo Rag 310gsm, 100% Cotton, bright white paper. A lovely embossed stamp in the bottom corner, some MUNDIAL branded tissue paper, and a sticker to round things off. These are hand made to order and will take approximately 5-7 working days to dispatch.
