Why are footballers wearing bras?

Post by Pstotto » Sat Aug 18, 2018 9:32 pm

Why are footballers now wearing bras? I've just seen a photo of Eintracht Frankfurt sloping off in their bras after a cup defeat. One of the most ridiculous pictures I've ever seen.

Err... No thanks. Wayne Rooney at Euro 2016 showed what the Russians were wearing, blue and white striped panties.

They did boob, they were the cup holders and the lost in the 1st round.

I think that all professional footballers now have to wear heart monitors and tracking devices throughout all games. It’s seems that way anyway, every game on tv I’ve noticed all players on all teams are now wearing them. They have a bumb on the back just below the neck which just looks uncomfortable.
Think the tracking they have to have is because of sky. If sky say they have to have them, then they have to have them.

Just a little bit of wire to firm the bust, love. The latest Anne Summers romantic product ( girlfriend tracking and heartbeat device.)

It also measures distance travelled and heart rate when sprinting etc ..... I think it ties in with all the sport science stuff

A lot of players wear them whilst training etc too.

It's because they are only on about £50k a week they have to rush off after the game to do drag acts to keep the wolf from the door ,no time to change.

Ok then, fair dos, but why do some footballers tape up their wrists?

It’s support for when they fall about diving

There GPS systems and link in with both the sports science and the player performance.

That’s the problem with underwire bras, as soon as they’re released they cause a knee injury!!

Mane wears them too - when they fall and put their hands out to protect themselves it can strain the wrist - players who “fall over” more usually wear them.

Bale wears them to cover a wristband thing he has worn through his whole career as superstition though.

Keepers obviously wear them for wrist support when making saves.

A lot also tape around their socks as they have special socks with grips on .... so they wear those and then cut the foot part off the kit socks and tape them up to cover where the socks are cut.

A lot of designated throw in takers wear them. Stops sweat making their hands slippery.

PYCB, Alan Brazil suggests practicing keepy-uppies with a grapefruit. Whether he could do it with two or not, I don't know.

Peep hole bra and crotchless panties, it’s what they’re all wearing.

Why don't keepers wear flat caps nowadays, is it because of Peaky Blinders?

No, it's the same reason they no longer tie their whippets to the goalpost. UEFA regs!
