Sportswear: How It Has Changed Over the Years

Gone are the days when sportswear was primarily associated with convenience. Today, our sporting heroes are as glamorous as our screen idols- and that’s true in a case of both on and off-field/court endeavors. Needless to say, much of the glamour that we associate our athletes with has a lot to do with the clothes that they wear on the field or on the court. Sportswear, through the years, has undergone several changes. Regardless of whether it is cricket, tennis, soccer, rugby or any outdoor sports- jerseys have changed a lot over the years. Both technological advancement (as far as manufacturing these jerseys is concerned) and fashion have actually gone on to play a role in heralding this change. Find out more.

What you need to know about the modern jerseys: Find out how they have changed

Comfort, needless to say, is at the heart of jersey manufacturing today. Thanks to the progress of modern technology, today you have these sweat-absorbent jerseys that are worn on warm and humid days. These jerseys are particularly used in high voltage sports such as cricket and soccer so that for players beating the sticky summers is a breeze while they’re playing.

What more? They offer you heightened mobility on field as well.

Today, a lot of thought goes into determining the color of the jerseys as well. When you’re a part of high voltage sporting activity like soccer, rugby or cricket, the team management will definitely want you to sport very bold and bright colors on field. The bold jersey is just a manifestation of your team’s aggression. It’s like a psychological weapon against your opponents. Not every team in every sport may try out this particular psychological hack but you may come across several coaches who continue to fall back on bold (but fashionable) jerseys to shore up mind games of teams.

Women sportswear demands special mention as far as fashion is concerned. Today, they are not only comfortable but funky, cute and trendy as well.

Finding the right manufacturer and supplier

Please ensure that you are looking for credentialed sportswear manufacturers in your town. Don’t end up settling for the services of manufacturers and suppliers that have not really been able to garner positive reviews in the market for the quality of products offered by them. There definitely are certain factors that help you be sure about the credentials of a company. You can start off by reading the reviews of the manufacturers and suppliers. What are their clients saying? Are they satisfied with the quality of products made available by these manufacturers? Are they looking forward to collaborating with these brands for their needs further in the future? Or, are they completely annoyed with the products delivered by these suppliers? Have they cared to clarify the reasons behind their feelings for these brands?

Do seek personal recommendations as well. Ask your peers if they can recommend a brand or not. Zeroing in on a brand has to do a lot with these considerations.

Cheap Soccer Cleats

Football cleats take their name from the cleats or studs on the bottom of the shoes and they are there to provide traction, and also assist in speed, sudden stopping, sharp turns, lateral movements, all of which are in the repertoire of a footballer's legwork . Football cleats are an essential part of a footballer's equipment. They have been around since the year 1526 when King Henry VIII's shoemaker made him a special pair of shoes to play football!

Football cleats have evolved through the dedication of the shoe industry to the game and in their present form as always, are indispensable for anyone who enjoys playing a professional game of football.

The features of a pair of football cleats as opposed to other cleats are the following:

1. Football cleats have a toe stud, more specifically, two studs below the heel and five under the toes and the ball of the foot.

2. They are made of heavier material and construction

3. They have thicker outsoles

4. They are available in three cuts; high, mid and low.

The different parts of a football cleat are

1. Outsole – the base of the shoe containing the studs

2. Midsole – the internal support of the shoe which supports the heel and the foot with cushioning

3. Upper – that part which is visible and attractive with the laces, normally with the brand logo, etc. and made from leather or synthetic leather, designed for lasting long.

With all these features, there are still many more which vary depending on the following playing factors:

Position of play – whether a defender or a wide receiver will determine whether you use a low cut, mid cut or high cut cleat

Type of field – whether astro turf or grass

Rules – whether detachable cleats usually made of metal are allowed for a younger group

Team players – requiring that all have the same color football cleats.

Types of cleats

Cleats may come molded or detachable.

Molded cleats are permanently attached to the outsole, and they are made of hard plastic. They are less expensive and are used by beginners

Detachable stud cleats have longer studs or cleats and they can be removed and changed according to your preference of field positions. Professional players prefer this one. A cleat wrench will be required for this. They are more expensive.

Why are cleats expensive?

· They are made of quality material. Flyknit for example, used on the uppers feels very light as if bare feet when tackling the ball. Yet it offers the required protection and traction, especially because in football fields, they water it to make the ball move smoothly. So the expensive material still has the friction when wet.

· Professional players train one to three hours every day, six days a week. The cleats have to last at least half a season and that is a good estimate.

· Top brands also mean high priced soccer cleats.

Yet, it is easy to get the top brands at discount. There are good deals on older models and it is a good idea to buy football cleats only when there is a discount on or from certain sites which offer cheap soccer cleats, but ones which are branded.

Formula 1 Rising Stars: Interview With Valtteri Bottas

Valtteri Bottas is regarded as one of Formula 1’s rising stars. And rightly so; in 2014, in only his second season in the sport, the Finn secured six podiums and finished fourth in the Drivers’ Championship, outperforming his more experienced teammate Felipe Massa.

Bottas’ breakthrough season greatly contributed to the resurgence of the Williams F1 team, which saw them finish third in the Constructors’ Championship; their best result since 2003’s second place.

The 2015 campaign, however, hasn’t quite got off to the start that the clear potential of the Mercedes-powered FW37 would suggest: Bottas failed to take the start of the Australian Grand Prix after injuring his back in qualifying, and he and teammate Massa found their race pace lacking in the searing heat of Malaysia.

I spoke exclusively to the Finn about his rise to Formula 1 and his expectations for the year ahead.

EH: You first got behind the wheel of a kart at the tender age of five, but your interest began a year earlier when you, along with your Dad, discovered a kart race during the summer. Can you tell me about that day and then your first experience in a kart the following year?

VB: Well, that day, I was actually going to Lahti (a town in Finland) with my father and we saw a sign about the go-kart Finnish championship race. We went there just to check it out, none of us was familiar with the sport. When I saw it the first time I thought it was really cool and wanted to get in to try one! My fist time actually trying a go-kart was about a year later, I was about 5-6 years old, and I actually crashed in the first corner of the first lap, as I did not use the brakes, and went off to the barrier. Nobody actually explained to me how it worked and they only said «Off you go»! That day, I learned from my mistake.

EH: In 2008 you won both the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup Championships. That is an enormous achievement, you must have been very proud of your efforts that year. How difficult was it competing in two championships?

VB: It was an important year and difficult too, as [I had] lots of races between two different championships. [But I needed] to get the support to move up to Formula 3. But overall it was good to get as much mileage as possible, the season went really well and I won both championships. This is also how I met and started working with my management (Mika Häkkinen, Didier Coton and Toto Wolff) so it was important to show them good results!

EH: You have had a very impressive season last year with six podiums, including your first Formula 1 podium at the Austrian Grand Prix on an unfamiliar track. Can you put into words how that felt and what thoughts were going through your head on the final lap, knowing you were mere seconds away from claiming your first podium?

VB: Austria was a very special moment, we had been chasing the podium for a long time and the last lap, even though you should never make any plans before crossing the finish line, I started thinking (as there was enough margin at the front and back) how cool it would be to cross the line and make the podium and meet my team when I get back, as the whole team had been working really hard for good results. The podium was very special, to see everyone there, it was a really nice day which I will remember forever.

EH: Last year Formula 1 veteran Felipe Massa joined the Williams team replacing Maldonado. What did you learn from his experience and knowledge of the sport, and how did it feel beating your more accomplished teammate in only your second year?

VB: My experience as a teammate of Felipe has been very good; obviously he is very experienced, he has been in different situations, car set-ups, different conditions, tracks. It has been good to work with him even though, as a racer, my goal is to be quicker than my teammate (whoever that is) and get more points.

EH: For a long time the Williams team appeared to be in racing ‘No Man’s Land’, but 2014 saw a dramatic shift in fortunes for the team. What do you think have been the major contributing factors to this remarkable turnaround for the team?

VB: I think the arrival of [Chief Technical Officer] Pat Symonds made a very big difference since joining the team mid-2013. He has been reallocating people at the factory, bringing new people to the team. Now we have the right people to the right positions and that definitely brought the results back. Another major contributing factor is the switch to Mercedes-Benz power units.

EH: For a country with a relatively small population, Finland has delivered three Formula 1 World Champions (and perhaps soon a fourth). What is it about your home country that sees it produce so many world class drivers in racing and rallying?

VB: First of all Finland is a motorsport country, it is part of our culture – we simply love F1 and rallying and it is true there are quite a few very good drivers from our country. Also, the level of go-karting (at a young age) is very high so this could explain it also. The mentality of Finns is also good for the sport, we can keep focused and don’t stress about things too much which is very important in F1 in my opinion.

EH: What are your first memories of following Formula 1 as a child and which driver/s did you most enjoy watching race?

VB: The first car I remember is the blue and yellow Williams car – my favourite in the beginning. One race that stands out as a race is Mika Häkkinen’s first win in 1997 in Jerez! I remember this race very clearly.

EH: After your most successful Formula 1 year to date in 2014, what are your expectations for 2015?

VB: In 2015 the competition is going to be much closer between the teams.

Understanding the Unfortunate Situation of the Al-Fida'I (Palestine National Team)

"Does Palestine have a football team?" That got me excited to the point where I ended up buying a round of second tobacco fill-ups for the group. The simple answer to that question was a "Yes". But me being me, wanted to explain to them the little that I knew of the sport in Palestine.

Football had been present in Palestine since the 1920's, the earliest of all when you compare the time when the sport was introduced into the region. In fact, the country had provided excellent footballers at the time, that were even recognized at a global stage. One of them was Jabra Al Zarqa who, based on his performance, attracted the likes of Arsenal FC. That was 1920's.

Where is the country now in terms of football? Fifa ranks Palestine at 157 in the latest world ranking release. Is it justified to an average individual that concentrates on stats and numbers? Yes, it does.

But if you go beyond the numbers and look at how a dominating country in Arab football just turned lame ducks, it is quite pitiful and inspiring at the same time (from a football perspective).

Fifa acknowledged Palestine in 1998. Since then, it had participated in several friendly and competitive matches with teams mainly from the Levant region (Syria, Jordan & Lebanon) or Far East nations. Their first game on home was played in 2008 against Jordan. A decision later since it was acknowledged with the reason being the unpredictable security concerns that exist and still exists in the country.

The most successful Palestinian national team coach was an Arab Israeli by the name of Azmi Nasser who twice took the responsibility of managing the team, once during 1999 – 2000 and then 2005 – 2007 (year he passed away). During his tenure of 21 games in those 5 years, he had managed to pull out 8 victories.

The disappointing and an important feature among a lot, is the background of how most of their matches were operated on. As the team is made up of players from both Gaza and the West Bank area, the travel restrictions infused by Israel on people traveling between the two regions, does not make it possible for these players to train together. They have to meet up in any neighboring countries to train together.

Secondly, there have been cases of where individuals from both regions are not granted permission to exit, which then puts the causes problems in the preparations. One such incident that I can distinctly remember is during the qualifying stages of the 2006 WC, the first team goal keeper who would travel to Egypt – Palestine border on a daily basis to cross over to Egypt in order to join up with the team. And when he was able to get through, he was physically and mentally tired to perform. This leads to bringing in players of Palestinian ancestry to the team causing communication tissues with the local Palestinian players.

They do deserve a lot of praise on pursuing their passion for the sport, even if they have to go through certain difficulties. The team had recently qualified for the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup hosted by Nepal, where the winner qualifies into the 2015 AFC Cup.

As Jibril Rajoub, president of the Palestinian football federation, said after the first game on home soil:

"Palestinian blood, Palestinian flesh, the Palestinian national anthem on Palestinian territory.

I am pretty sure I can say for all of us that we the football fans all across the world are proud of what you have achieved and the awaiting success.

PS: I would recommend all of you to watch Goal of Dreams , which is a documentary of the Palestinian national teams, struggle as they aim to qualify for the 2006 World Cup. A must watch.

Look forward to my follow up post on why I expect the Palestinian national team to be notified in the future in the regional and global stage.

Sehwag, Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh Should Play in the World Cup 2015

There are only about 100 days left for the World Cup. Many TV channels, ex cricketeers are all debating the 30 or 15 probables for the world cup. Strangely the whole world seems to have forgotten the stars of the recent past Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Harhbhajan and Yuvraj. These stars who won and played many matches for India are suddenly being ignored. The likes of Shikar Dhawan, Rahane etc are being discussed as replacements. The likes of Akshar Patel as the next international sensation are being hotly debated. Akshar Patel made a debut for the Indian ODI side after playing less than 10 first class games. On the contrary players such as Rayudu have been given an international debut after 10 years of making an appearance in the Indian first class scene.

The likes of Shikar Dhawan, Rahane and the spinning option to Ravichandran Ashwin can only be a back up to Sehwag, Gambhir, Harbhajan and Yuvraj. Imagine the first match of the 2011 World cup where Sehwag scored a magnificent 175 against Bangladesh. Will Rahane or Shikar Dhawan bat so freely like Sehwag? The answer is «NO.» Similarly consdier Gambhirs 97 and how it helped India win the WC 2011. Think about the many magnificent innings that Yuvraj Singh played for India in T20s and ODIs. Also the many fantasitc bowling spells bowled by Harbhajan in Tests and ODIs. Is it fair on our parts to ignore these stalwarts when they are still in their playing years and when they have not retired. Shikar Dhawan and Rahane can ably assist Sehwag and Gambhir and cannot be their replacements. Also Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh should be paired together, they would form a big force in the spin department along with the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel as allrounders. Harbhjan Singh should not be ignored in the manner the selectors have ignored him during the past few seasons.

I hate to observe that the selectors in India instead of realizing the valuable contributions of these players readily shun then and abandon them when they have a poor season. Even the great Sourav Ganguly was unfortunately dropped during his peak time as a cricketer. Sourav Ganguly himself was instrumental in securing many wins for India as its finest captain. But the selectors did not realize his value or his contribution and simply dropped him from the team.

I urge the readers and the Indian team selectors to realize how important the contribution of Sehwag, Gambhir, Harbhajan and Yuvraj has been to Indian Cricket in the past. These stars must be picked for the world cup 2015 and should not be made a subject of ridicule by making statements that «they have not performed» etc. Me being an avid cricket fan and having watched cricket in India for the last 35 years have drawn up this list for the WC 2015.

  1. Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Ravindra Jadega, MS Dhoni, Ravi Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Ishanth Sharma, B.Kumar, Shami, Karn Sharma, Ambati Rayudu.

Viru, Gambhir, Harbhajan and Yuvraj you can be rest assured that our prayers are with you to on the plane to Australia for the world cup 2015. I do hope that the selectors realize how valuable your contribution has been to Indian Cricket and reward you with what you deserve – A place in the WC 2015 squad.

Messi Vs Maradona

Who is the world’s greatest footballer? Many currently place that mantel at the feet of the talismanic Barcelona front man Lionel Messi. But is Messi the greatest EVER player? This is food for thought and in order to come to a conclusion it is important to compare Messi with another Argentinean, a man so often lauded as the greatest footballer of all time – Diego Maradona.

To adequately compare Messi and Maradona it is important to examine their playing styles, abilities, achievements at domestic and international level and the eras in which they both played.

Lionel Messi

Messi began life as an attacking midfielder, but in recent years has been deployed as a forward (rather than a traditional striker). His skill and creativity on the ball means he can dictate the game by dropping deeper, but can push forward and score goals with terrifying regularity.

In the 2012/13 season Messi broke Gerd Müller’s goal-scoring record of 85 goals in a calendar year, a record that stood for 40 years. This has led to many pundits, fans, players and media outlets to proclaim him the greatest player of all time.

Messi’s ability is undeniable, especially as, at the age of 11 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, which lends to his small stature and meant he had to develop pace, touch and skill at a young age in order to compete at the highest level.

Despite having won everything at domestic level, question marks still remain over Messi’s ability to transfer his form to the international stage. In an Argentina shirt he doesn’t appear to possess the same magic as in a Barcelona jersey.

There are also reservations as to whether Messi could deliver playing in other European league’s; the Premier League for example. The game in England is much more physical and fast paced than in Spain and some ponder whether Messi would be as good playing outside of Spain.

Diego Maradona

A generation (or so) before Lionel Messi there was another Argentinean who wore the famous scarlet and blue of Barcelona. His name was Diego Armando Maradona.

The mercurial Argentinean was technically gifted, a playmaker and great strategist. His skill on the ball was unrivalled and despite being an attacking midfielder, Maradona regularly scored at a rate that would have rivalled most strikers.

Many fans, pundits, experts, players and critics regard Maradona as perhaps the greatest footballer who ever lived.

He began his career at Argentinos Juniors before transferring to Brazilian heavyweights Boca Juniors, where he spent a season. It was then that he moved to FC Barcelona for a (then) world record fee of £5 million. A record he himself would later break with a £6.9 million move to Napoli. Maradona spent two injury plagued seasons at the Nou Camp, but still managed 38 goals in 58 games and helped the team to win both domestic cups.

Following several disputes Maradona transferred to Italian club Napoli in 1984. It was here he enjoyed the most successful spell of his career, winning 2 Seria A titles, the Coppa Italia, the Italian Super Cup and the UEFA Cup. He also finished as top scorer in Serie A at the end of the 1987/88 season.

Maradona also produced on the international stage, where he was instrumental in Argentina’s World Cup win in 1986 and runner up finish in 1990. He also won the World Cup Golden Boot in 1986.

Conclusion

Whilst Messi may have won more domestic trophies and broken more goal-scoring records, there is no doubting that Maradona played in a much tougher and more physically demanding era of the sport. He also played in weaker sides than Messi and perhaps most importantly, produced at international level. Its unlikely Messi will move to a smaller unfashionable team to elevate them to greatness like Napoli. After all his current Barcelona side is built to accommodate him. The support of numerous talented Spanish internationals such Xavi and Iniesta combine with Messi to create a potent attacking force. One could argue this set-up make the diminutive Argentinean look better than he actually is.

It is worth noting that Maradona is an outspoken and patriotic man, whilst the young pretender is more introverted and timid in nature. This is partly the reason why he doesn’t enjoy the same level of adulation from his home country.

Comparing them is difficult as the eras they played in were so different, but taking everything into account Maradona edges Messi as the greatest ever footballer. With the world Cup 2014 looming in Brazil Messi does have the opportunity to turn this round.

Lionel Messi – The Greatest Footballer Ever?

The footballing world watched on in utter amazement and delight yesterday as Messi’s Barcelona put 7 goals past a hapless Bayer Leverkusen side in a UEFA Champions League game at the Nou Camp. For the first time ever, we saw one person score 5 goals in a Champions league game and it so happened to be no other person than Lionel Messi.

Yes, the number of goals may be a new record which I think he can better in the years ahead, but it’s more the manner and the sheer class with which he scored the goals that made many a football enthusiast admire this rare talent that has emerged in this generation.

Of course, we all knew about his ability already but his display yesterday has put him in another League. The way in which he made the difficult act of scoring spectacular goals look so easy was just a joy to watch. One was a left foot lob, another a delightful right foot lob, then a careful control from an acute angel, a laser-guided placement with his left foot and then a drive through a number of opposing players. His unique sense of picking the right moments in games to do what he does best is simply quite extraordinary.

He has often been compared with the Legendary Pele and his fellow country man Diego Maradona as to who is the greatest player ever but I will dare to say that even these legends will secretly admit that it’s just a matter of time before this boy from the backside of Rosario, Argentina supersedes their achievements if he hasn’t already done so. Considering the fact that Messi is only 24 years of age and has at least 10 years of top flight football in him, the prospect of what he could achieve can be incredible.

It’s almost inconceivable that the world would never have seen what happened yesterday had it not been for the Barcelona scouts who intervened to save his career when he was being given up on. River Plate, one of the biggest clubs in the Argentine First Division who wanted to sign him from Newell Old Boys Club in Rosario, soon discovered that his inability to endure playing for 90 minutes was due to the absence of a growth hormone that hindered his normal physical development as a person. He looked so tiny for his age at the time that, they were not sure if he could develop physically to meet the demands of the modern game even though his talent was never in dispute. The money needed to put him on a special dieting programme was just too much they couldn’t afford it. They gave up on him but thankfully, he was spotted and taken to Barcelona’s La Masia’s training academy and the rest, they say, is history.

Talking about humble beginnings, his first contract was signed on a white handkerchief because his Dad was so frustrated with the directors of Barcelona at the time due to their indecision about his son’s future that, he gave Charles Rexach, the Director of football at the time a brief window of opportunity to make up his mind. Either they give him an answer there and then or forget about Messi forever once they fly back to Argentina. His exploits today has proven that it doesn’t matter where you begin in life but rather, it’s about you believing in your unique abilities and giftings given to you by God regardless of your size, age, race or gender.

As great as the current Barcelona team is at the moment, it is my firm conviction that if you pluck Messi out of this team, they would not have achieved as much as they have. He brings a certain quality to the team which puts them way above any other team at the moment. When games are tight, he is the only one that can come up with some special instinctive play capable of breaking down opposing teams whereby creating opportunities to score goals.

The flip side of the above argument is that, even the greatest players will find it very difficult to perform at their optimum when they are either surrounded by mediocre players or the team they find themselves in doesn’t play to their strengths. This may well be the reason why he is yet to hit the same dizzy heights with the Argentine National Team as he’s done time and time again with his Club side.

With all that he’s achieve so far, hearing him speak just makes you believe why he may go on to accomplish much more. He seems to exude this important virtue of humility which is vital not only to help get you to the top of your game but more importantly, to stay there. There isn’t any air of «superstardom» about him. His lifestyle is just simple, both on and off the pitch. I’m yet to hear any news about Messi involved in any «off the pitch» incidents that you so often associate with English Premiership players. He just seems to enjoy playing in huge stadia as much as he did when he played on the streets of Rosario.

So is he the greatest player ever? The legendary Pele seems to think he is the best by far in the world at the moment. Most football Managers, fellow professionals and the football community at large seem to think he is the best ever even though he’s yet to lead Argentina to Word Cup glory. I would not dispute that either. I think we haven’t seen the best of him yet. He is simply sublime.
