Some people are on the pitch by David Marsh

This was also from an article I originally read on design football and it's interesting to say the least. The pictures illustrate the movement of players throughout the 1966 World Cup final created by mapping archive footage. The top image shows the detail of the whole match with movements of the England team in red and West Germany in black. The middle shows Bobby Charlton's duel against Franz Beckenbauer and the bottom shows Alan Ball's movements.

The artist is David Marsh.

I think it's an interesting idea even though the cynic in me says it is jumping on the World Cup bandwagon. That said it is a great deal more interesting than the cast of Hollyoaks singing a football song and definitely a lot less cynical.
