Badge of the Day #62 (Excelsior Mouscron)

Today’s example from the collection represents Excelsior Mouscron, another Belgian club whose magnificent name is tragically no longer with us (since late 2009) yet the romance of which lives on in the heart of TOoT.
Excelsior Mouscron are another team who would have appeared on the radar at the turn of the old & new millennia, appearing as they twice did in the UEFA Cup in the late 1990s & early 2000s, instantly insinuating themselves into the affections & possessing sufficient charm & cool to remain there since, & whilst the badge-as-object lacks any especial evidence of vintage, still it hauntologically preserves the ghost of the name in suitably desirable fashion.
