SPAOTP's Advent Calendar: Day 8

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of retail therapy (actually, make that a LOT of retail therapy) so for Day 8 of our SPAOTP Advent Calendar, we're bringing you a selection of tasteful gifts that you can by direct from the online football club shop of your choice.

Of course sitting down at the table to eat copious amounts of turkey, stuffing and brussel sprouts is only half the story where Christmas Day's concerned. You need crackers, and to that end what could be better than to buy a pack of eight Arsenal crackers decorated in red shiny foil with a Gunners badge on top. We're not sure if the jokes inside are very good, but judging by the standard of the jokes Arsene Wenger puts out on the pitch every week, they should be pretty hilarious. (Sorry Graham, don't hit me...)

Christmas is all about giving, however, so why not give your Man City friends an official MCFC calendar? It'll be a great way of remembering those players who'll be largely absent during 2010 - players such as Emmanuel Adebayor (on African Nations Cup duty in January), Stephen Ireland (injured most of the time), Craig Bellamy (subject of a request to leave in the January transfer window) and Robinho (injured AND the subject of a request to leave in the January transfer window).

For fans of Man United, there's the chance to decorate their tree in style with a pack of four glass baubles - two coloured gold and two red. The red ones are particularly good as you can look at your reflection in them and see a passable resemblance of Sir Alex Ferguson. Clever stuff.

In the Hull City online shop, why not snap up a pair of flashing antlers? They run on batteries, one size fits all, and they're guaranteed to draw an enormous amount of attention to yourself - as endorsed by Phil Brown.

Portsmouth fans can emulate the goalkeeping prowess of their hero David James by purchasing these fleece gloves. They feature a Pompey club badge, are completely machine washable and are guaranteed not to grip a football if one's thrown at you.

Finally for all you Burnley supporters, there's a 2010 diary which looks the business with its large embossed club crest on the front. At £3.99, it's the ideal gift for anyone wanting to make note of all those avoidable and pointless away matches.

Know of any special Christmas gifts on sale at your club store online? Perhaps you've got a suggestion for some merchandise that should be on sale? Either way, leave us a comment and let us know...
