The England Football team is spearheading a drive to raise awareness of bowel cancer, the second most common cause of cancer deaths in the UK, killing 44 people each day.
The campaign ‘There is Moore to know’ will feature a series of striking and powerful images with stars of the England football team, Theo Walcott, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, David James, Micah Richards and Shaun Wright Phillips for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK aims to raise awareness of the shocking statistics associated with the disease that killed the former England captain, Bobby Moore aged just 51.' The Fund endeavors to make more people aware of the symptoms of the disease and how to best reduce their risk of bowel cancer.
Rio Ferdinand said:
My England team-mates and I were shocked to find out that bowel cancer kills 44 people every day in the UK and yet Stephanie Moore told us that eight out ten cases can be successfully treated if detected early enough.
The players chose to work with the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK following their decision, in 2007, to set up their own charitable trust – the Team England Footballers Charity.' Their ambition is to raise a minimum of £1 million for chosen charity partners ahead of the 2010 World Cup.' Each member of the squad has signed up to donate both their international match fees and their time to support chosen charity partners to raise awareness of particular issues and make a difference to the lives of others.
Another England player to comment on the project was flying winger Theo Walcott who said:
Bobby was one of the greatest footballers of all time; to die at 51 is too young. It is important to us that we make more people aware of the disease.
Good cause. Side note.. What boots is SWP wearing? Adidas something….
Its the Adidas 50.9 tunit, but with the lace-cover cut off.
adidas f50.8 he just cut off the lace cover

Why do they cut the lace cover off?
i’ve seen it with robben nd nasri too..
whats the point?
they should all be booked for taking their shirt off..
Interesting… That’s one of their gimmicks so I’m not sure why they cut that off. I’ve seen players do that with the Vapors too.
i think the same than DC, why to cut the lace cover???
now i remember a f50.9 “climacool” with all the cleat perfored and without lace cover.
bcuz laces help your shot cuz they add spin… at least thats why I prefer vapor III’s over IV’s , and will be gettin superflies when u can buy em
i assume its the same concept
But the laces on the f50’s are not on the top of the shoe like the superfly.
They are a bit below the skin of the shoe, so that wouldnt make sense
