Badge of the Day #25 (Havre AC)
This badge from the European club collection features the rather modern crest representing the (or, rather, ‘Le’) Havre AC, the following of whose fortunes is not a little to do with having good friends resident in the city, with whom & where quality time has been spent. Add to this the fact that Le Harve was the place where our artistically-heroic Georges Braque grew up & studied & has a Rue named in his honour &, aesthetically, the rather groovy combination of sky & marine blue club colours & the affection goes a little deeper, even as fortunes on the pitch yo-yo between the top & second divisions of French domestic football (as ever, a mere, inconsequential detail).
Congratulations to the mighty Westerlo, already going well this season, but a point off the top of the Tweede Klasse & hopefully on course for a return to the top division, knocking Anderlecht out of the Belgian Cup on penalties last night, as just discovered in The Guardian's Results page: back of the net (& there's another badge we require).
