The Dinha Bobble Hat is a celebration of a classic 1980s hat and the first Brazilian to play in English top flight football, Francisco Ernandi Lima da Silva, Mirandinha to you and I.
Mirandinha was Newcastle United’s replacement for the departed Peter Beardsley, big shoes to fill for any player. He’d appeared at Wembley for his national side and United manager Willie McFaul went and bought him after that. He provided both magical and frustrating moments on Tyneside, scoring famous goals, matched with equally famous celebrations, at Anfield and Old Trafford. on the terraces he inspired a classic chant, “His name is Mirandinha, he’s not from Argentina! He’s from Brasil! He’s f#$%&*g brill!”, and of course a range of headwear we have recreated as closely as possible to the original.
