Last week we posted up a piece on the Top Selling Premier League Player Shirts – and one of the comments really caught our eye.
Footy-Boots.com user Jack mentioned that he’d be interested in knowing what people do with their football shirts, in terms of Names & Numbers, long sleeve or short sleeve etc etc.
So, we took him up on his idea and have decided to run some polls based around those questions!
Hero Shirt, Your Shirt or Plain Shirt? [poll id=”37″]
Way back when, players only had numbers on their shirts, but since the mid-late nineties, player printed shirts have become big business!
Of course, there are those who prefer the clean simplicity of an unprinted shirt – in our humble opinion, some shirts look better unprinted – such as the England Home shirt or the Manchester United Home Shirt 2010-2011.
And there’s are the egotists who like to have their own name across their shoulders – these divas probably have their name & number sown into their football boots, for added impact! Oh hang on – I’ve just described 90% of the Footy-Boots.com staff there…!
Long Sleeve or Short Sleeve?
Short sleeve or long sleeve is always a dilemma when picking up a shirt. First off, it’s a bit of extra money that we could probably find a use for – but being based in the UK, we always welcome a bit of extra fabric between us and the cold!
But those from sunnier climes will probably find it pointless to have anything but a Short Sleeve shirt, as we imagine all the Dry-Fit and ClimaCool technology in the world won’t do you any good in the scorching equatorial sunshine!
Watch or Play? [poll id=”39″]
For some, a football shirt is a garment just like any other t-shirt, that they can pop on whenever they go to the ground of their team to watch the match, go to the pub or just sit at home and watch the footy.
Others believe that if Nike, Puma, adidas & Umbro are going to take the trouble of developing moisture-wicking fabric and ventilation then it deserves to be used to it’s full extent, and won’t be seen in a football shirt unless they’re heading to training or a kickabout.
And then there’s others who are happy to do both, and it’s these that you’ve got to look out for – as we’re willing to bet that they didn’t wash their beloved jersey between activities. Phew!
