Ever wondered how the lowly button came to be?

Buttons are actually more ancient than what most people believe- they are thought to be as old as clothing itself. They're now an essential part of modern clothing.


Button Country

The oldest button was found in the Mohenjo-daro region in the Indus Valley, now known as modern day Pakistan. It is estimated to be around 5000 years old, with a decorative flat face that fits into a loop, and is primarily made out of curved shell.


Button Country
The Middle Ages is when the button’s use as a functional fastener started to take hold. In Europe, close-fitting clothes became in vogue among nobles and royalty, and buttons were used to help the garments fit more snugly around the wearers’ body.

Y'all ready for Pep? 💬

Get set for live updates from the boss' pre-Bournemouth press conference.

🔵 #ManCity |
PEP 💬 Incredibly happy for the (CAS) decision which shows what all the people said about the Club was not true and to defend on the pitch what we won on the pitch.
PEP 💬 Like I said many times, if we did something wrong we would accept the decision of UEFA and CAS because we did something wrong. We can defend ourselves. We have the right to defend ourselves when we believe what we have done is correct.

A thread on #ManCity's financials...

Revenue growth has been a straight-line trend since 2009. With #UEFA's #UCL ban and fine, we expect annual revenue to drop below £500m for 2021-22. 1/7
Staff costs trend has been tempered by formation of City Football Group and the assumed transfer of some #MCFC costs into the new holding Co. #ManCity currently run 2nd-highest staff costs in English football behind #MUFC (£315.26m vs £332.30m). 2/7
#ManCity's revenue split highlights low Matchday take relative to Commercial/TV income. #MUFC Matchday ££ is 17.67% (£110.80m) of revenue vs #MCFC's £55.01m (10.28%). #UEFA TV payments over last 4 yrs averaged £62.94m based on performance etc. Current TV revenue £252.18m. 3/7

So, here’s a thread of the CL Final for you all! (We will keep adding to the thread over the coming days!) 🏆🔴
As always, the photos belong to their respective photographers, not us! 📸❤️

This is it. It’s back.

Hertha Berlin.

The FM19 edition.

Like this tweet. Follow this thread for updates. Turn notifications on. Strap yourself in.

It’s going to be emotional.

1. #HerthaBegin

An eclectic mix of young talent and ageing stalwarts, Hertha are seen by the media as solid Bundesliga midtablers having finished 10th last season.

2. First transfer window will be tricky but vital for moving the club forwards this season. Purse strings are tight with a modest transfer budget of just approx. £7m + sales and the board have imposed strong philosophies to blood youngsters and homegrown talent.

[Post-Match Thread 9/3] #Spursvbarca #UCL

I understand EV-Barça is pretty divisive among the fanbase like the man himself, and most people find it odd that I find them endearing. In the last year or so, this particular iteration of Barça and especially that of 17/18
has made me a student of the game in more ways than one. I am much better off for this epiphany; in the past, my opinions were usually wrong and I now have found more value in trying to understand why professionals don’t always do it the way we expect them to. The other half is
partially because I don’t wish upon any coach to inherit the state of the team Lucho left behind with a few more leaving days before the new season (this is all within context of Barça of course; any coach would find it an honor to coach this team).
