Just A Bunch Of Wanka’s!!

No thats not a spelling mistake but how Peru’s most popular team in the UK is spelled. I recently ordered a Deportivo Wanka t-shirt which are supposedly cult items among like-minded British football fans. I wanted to buy the actual replica shirt but they had actually sold out and there was a long waiting list so settled for this t-shirt from SportingKicks which has “Arriba el Wanka” on the back translating as “Up the Wanka”.

When the package arrived there was even an information sheet telling me that they are based in a city called Huancayo in the Peruvian Andes and are named after the Wanka people (I kid you not!) who used to live in the area way before the club was founded in 1996. I’m sure Peru’s most famous son Paddington Bear would be proud to see so many British w*nkers wearing the Wanka shirt!
