Is Manchester red or blue? Whether you support Man Utd or Man City, you need one of these metal posters
It doesn’t matter whether you reckon Manchester is red or blue, you can ensure your room is decked out in the appropriate colour with this awesome football wall art from Displate.
In fact, all fans need one of these football metal posters in their home.
Displate specialises in posters that are made out of metal that can be mounted on your wall in 20 seconds using their magnet mounting technique. Each Displate is handcrafted featuring the design of one of the many talented artists who sell their artwork via the site.
That includes artists who take their inspiration from Manchester United and Manchester City. For example, these stripped back versions of both club crests will make it clear who has got your backing, while also giving a nod to Manchester’s industrial heritage.
Talking of heritage, there are some great Displates of United heroes of yesteryear available. The legendary George Best is stylised in the manner of a revolutionary poster, complete with aged effects to enhance the vintage feel.
Another United great, former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, is featured in this pencil-style illustration. The 13-time Premier League and two-time Champions League winning manager appears in monochrome, but for the dash of United red on the crest on the chest of his sweatshirt.
Pay homage to the most decorated football player of all time and United’s record holder for appearances with this gingham Ryan Giggs tribute.
Alongside Giggs in United’s midfield for seven of his 13 Premier League title wins was a certain Roy Keane, who is featured in his more recent bearded phase in the Barack Obama-inspired poster below.
And what of Manchester’s modern day heroes? For City, one of their current legends in the making is Brazilian starlet Gabriel Jesus.
The 20-year-old has scored 15 goals in 24 games since arriving from Palmeiras and is already a firm fan favourite. If Jesus is a firm favourite with you and you want him on your wall, the Displate below is for you.
Across the city, United goalkeeper David De Gea continues to earn points for the club with his incredible saves. He has kept more than 100 clean sheets in his 282 appearances for United to date.
His uncanny ability to stop a ball that seems destined for the back of the net – take his recent save against Liverpool as a prime example – sees him reimagined as a cyborg in the poster below. Part-human goalkeeper, part-robot.
At the other end of the pitch, United are about to welcome back the player most likely to hang a Displate of himself on his bedroom wall. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is seen celebrating against an Old Trafford backdrop in the poster below.
So, whether your allegiances lie at Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium, or whether you support a different team entirely, you can pick up a great piece of wall art for yourself or as a Christmas present by visiting Displate.
