Footballers with holey socks

Recommended Posts


Have you ever wondered why you see some players with holes in the backs of their socks? I thought it was the work of moths but here is the reason.

It's all the rage, Jake was telling me about it - supposedly it reduces injuries, but you are not supposed to do it (he says).

I used to get told by my old duty head of year (managed my school's team) that socks help avoid injuries. I know if I were to ever knock a muscle or something like that, I'd rather it is tight and supported. God knows if it's just an excuse or an actual thing.

it makes me laugh, because they look so awful. does it really cause injuries because they are too tight? why do they have a new pair for every game, surely they get washed with the shirts? its just one of those things one person started doing and others are tagging along.
