A Step in the Right Direction…

One of life’s irritations for old 40Something codger’s like us (and probably you) is having any football match visually scarred by players wearing fluorescent slippers…

They seem to be designed to annoy and in an age when tape round socks has to match the kit why is it that these vivid flashes of colour go unlegislated?

Eeeeerrrrgh!

Eeeeerrrrgh!

But there is hope.
I sense that the days of the lemon and lime and satsuma playing soccer ‘shoe’ might be over…
Here is the new Nike Premier boot….

That's better....

That’s better….

Well done everyone.

More of this sort of thing in our big catalogue of what has gone all missing from football – ‘Got, Not Got’, which you can buy from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here

We have now finished writing the follow up book – ‘The Lost World of Football’ which will be out this autumn…  pre-order here…
