Over the page, a new pair of pages don't contain any football stickers, but do show the league tables from the last season and the honours sheet for 1981-1982 including world cup, UEFA cup, FA cup and footballing awards.
The Panini Football 83 Sticker Album gets cracking on page 4 with... you guessed it - Arsenal! The football stickers in this edition take on a new format, they're tall portrait stickers, with each player making a jaunty pose with one foot on a football. It's certainly a good look, to go along with some amazingly bad 80's haircuts. Where perms ever really fashionable?! That's one for another website I suppose. The club layouts for the English Division One's football stickers is pretty neat and tidy, the left hand page shows the team photo sticker, shiny club badge and manager in a box at the top, with honours list and team info. Squeezed in alongside is the sticker for the club goalie. Below this are 4 of the long portrait players stickers, with a brief bio below each. On the facing page are a further 8 stickers, making 13 squad members in total.
Just past half-way into the football sticker album the English Second Division gets allocated 4 pages, as usual there are only the badge and team photo sticker. The badge shiny or 'foil' as Panini like to refer to them, are half-sized stickers here, so two to a single sticker in your packet. The half-sized stickers continue into the Scottish Premier Division section, where the players are each two to a sticker. There is a full sized team photo and badge shiny in the middle of each page - only one page per team.
The Panini Football 83 Sticker Album closes with three double-spreads showing "The Laws of the Game". A pretty nifty feature listing the rules and laws of Football according to FIFA, each law gets one or several stickers to illustrate it - the offside rule is a doozie!
