Just when we were quelling our excitement over the news that former FADER coverstar Pete Doherty is recording his new solo album with Blur's Graham Coxon comes news that Pete Doherty has purchased new uniforms for his local football club the Queen's Head Rangers for £500. The uniforms will have a picture of Doherty's face on them, and he is also rumored to fancy a position on the team, most likely as leading scorer (bah-dum-bum). Doherty's made his love for First Division middlers Queen's Park Rangers well known over the years and hopes the new uniforms and his face will inspire the pub team to success. His face inspires us to quit smoking, drinking and going to jail, but we're Americans. After the jump, two videos: the first of Pete scoring in a celebrity match last year before stealing an injured fans chips, and the second of Pete in the studio with Coxon. Pete Doherty's solo album is due next summer.
