Half-and-half scarf at Leicester-West Brom bosses begs question: why?

The half-and-half scarf is truly a curious beast.

To some, it's simply a memento of a particular fixture; to others, it serves as the manifestation of all that is wrong with modern football: the transient loyalties, the rampant commercialism, etc.

Just when you thought you'd seen football merchandise reach its nadir, Monday night's Premier League clash between Leicester City and West Brom coughed up a curious evolution of the game's most derided souvenir.

Presenting, the managerial half-and-halfer.

What better way to commemorate the fateful week night that master strategists Craig Shakespeare and Tony Pulis met in epic battle to produce an enthralling 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium.

1) Who on Earth would commit to producing such tat, and 2) who on Earth would actually buy one?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
