Did you have any posters on the Wall as a child or teenager? If so, what of and why?


I shared a bedroom with my brothers for years and we used to get loads of free magazines from a guy my dad knew.

We would stick posters up from them, mainly football, boxing, and comic books.

The main three I choose and kept up were one of Nigel Benn, my favourite boxer, one of Paolo Maldini, my favourite footballer, and one of the ABC Warriors, a sci-fi comic from 2000AD.


These were just cheapies cut from magazines. No copies of the originals, but here are some pics of the source material for those who don't know who they are.

When I was a teenager and my folks split up I went to live with my dad. This meant I was in charge of the bedroom there and my brothers were in charge of the one at my mums.


I put up some larger, better quality film posters. Mainly cool 90's stuff like trainspotting, Pulp fiction, army of darkness, the crow.

These are the actual ones I had.











I also had random sexy ladies up from fhm, loaded, etc.

Used to have the usual generic football posters from whatever magazines I got my hands on. Mixture of Liverpool and Ireland players. That was as a teenager.

Have a vague recollection of the door to the bedroom I shared with my brothers being covered in the stickers you used to get out of chewing gum. All of the WWF wrestlers.

Def Leppard and the Road Warriors tag team wrestling..
Cool. A really pumped up 80's bedroom.


I would have had wrestling posters up too. I was a big wrestling fan till I was about 18, and I still check it out from time to time now.

Yeah, we used to get old copies of Match, Shoot, and the Rangers News, and stick up whoever was in them.

I never really had music posters. Didn't really get into going to gigs and really having my own musical interests till I was about 17, by which time I was no longer into posters.

That Danni Minogue 1997 calendar is thoroughly recommended, by the way. Tremendous topless shots in there.

Same as a teenager, I had the Trainspotting one with the monologue from the start of the movie, I had posters from Loaded of Jo Guest and the like.




I had a small framed Scarface one too.



Some band posters, Oasis, Stone Roses and the cover art from Dookie was one I remember
