The fanatic fans of the Serbian club Rudar named themselves the Alcohol Boys.
Football and alcohol are such a perfect match that most fans can hardly picture one without the other. It doesn’t matter if you drink to calm the nerves, get an energy boost, socialize with the lads or simply soften the soar throat from the singing, alcohol is an absolute must at matches. It’s fun to see how fans from all over the world add booze into their style of support in a creative way. From simple banners with beer glasses to the name and identity of a whole fanclub. We searched the web for you and selected the best alcohol related banners. Enjoy!

The moment I saw the title, I knew this was a long post…
hahaha I hope to make it even longer in the future by adding some new pics. 🙂
Fun banners. I don’t have a banner, but I may design one. I believe is a great with pretty much anything: writing, reading, drawing, painting, cooking, etc., etc., etc. I’ve spent this afternoon and evening writing and scheduling my blogs wity accompanying haiku for this week, and I assure you the one thing that has kept my in my seat and on task if my bottomless supplly of Pinot Noir .

Rudar Prijedor is not in Serbia…
Very sorry Edina… It’s a Serbian club in the Bosnian league. My mistake.
Here you can find an interesting Red Star Belgrade banner: http://sport.blic.rs/crvena-zvezda/vesti/231512/Riznic-Mnogi-fudbaleri-piju-kao-Jovanovic-ali-se-kriju
Its Serbian Cyrilic meaning “Rizna (nickname of the player) Cheers!”
Here you can scroll down for a better pic of it:
The story behind it: Zoran Riznić aka Rizna was a quality player in mid 90’s, well known for his drinking habits. He was supposed to play for some kind of World XI in Russia back then, but didn’t show up for the departure. Urban myth goes that he drank himself unconscious, but he claims it was just a matter of misunderstanding (he talks about it in the second article). Anyway, he never tried to hide his habits and got sacked rather soon after coming drunk to a training yet again.
Rizna is still held in high esteem here and media occasionally like to make a story about him and remind us of those days.
Hahahaha those are the heroes in football we are looking for. I love it, thanks!
Banner has been added (thanks again). I also want to make a post about “cult heroes”. Most clubs have had one like Rizna who would drink like a fan. If you have any more suggestions I’m glad to hear them.
