After success with superstars Pele and George Best, in 1973 the Stylo Matchmakers football boot brand signed the next biggest name in English football with Kevin Keegan AKA “Merseyside’s Mighty Mouse”. Facing a severe economic crisis, the English government turned to football. The country was in need of a hero and Kevin Keegan was just the man to provide it. He went on to become one of the most successful players in the history of English football, winning three First Division titles (with Liverpool), two European Cups (with Liverpool), and an FA Cup (also with Liverpool).
When promoting his latest autobiography “My Life in Football“, Keegan reflected on fellow Stylo legend George Best and told the newspapers: “I benefited from Bestie more than anybody. I got his boot contract, Stylo Matchmakers. I was 20. I wasn’t 16 like him when he first came over. He was the first and it’s always hard to be the pioneer.” Keegan went on to introduce the Stylo Matchmakers brand to Liverpool management (Bill Shankly) and soon the whole team were battling it out in Stylo Matchmakers.
Today the Stylo Matchmakers football boot design which Kevin Keegan and the Liverpool FC squad sported was rebooted as the Heirship Seventy Four, 1974 being the amazing footballing year this boot model was at its most popular. Now, this model has been modernized and completely remastered so that today’s players can wear a lightweight classic pair of boots, in both comfort and in style.
George Best is widely considered one of the greatest football (soccer) players of all time. He was a Northern Irish forward who played for Manchester United and the Northern Ireland national team during his career. He was known for his exceptional technical skills, agility, and dribbling ability, as well as his vision, passing, and goal-scoring ability.
Best was known for his flair and style on the field, and his ability to entertain and excite the crowd. He was a player who could score goals, create assists and make the game look easy. He was also known for his ability to score spectacular goals, and for his ability to take on and beat multiple defenders. He was also a humble, charismatic and charming person, who was highly respected by fans and peers alike.
During his time at Manchester United, Best helped the team win the English First Division (now the Premier League) twice, and the European Cup (now the Champions League) once. He also won the Ballon d'Or (European Footballer of the Year) award in 1968, and was named to the FIFPro World XI (a team of the best players in the world) in 1968 and 1974. He was also included in the FIFA 100 list of the greatest living footballers and was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
In summary, George Best was an exceptional player who possessed a rare combination of skill, flair, and vision, and his impact on the game of football is still felt today. He was a true legend of the game and his legacy continues to live on
