the thrill of a new pair of boots never leaves me. ever since i was a kid i have been thrilled knowing i was going to wear my new boots for the next game.
this game just happens to be the cup final.
funny thing though.
the grey patch on the instep of each boot is a specially coated surface with rubber strips to add grip to the contact area. this is designed to make the ball do things that the goalies aren`t expecting.
this is all well and good but for the fact that when i strike the ball on the run i hit the ball just below the laces on the top of the boot.
not to worry.
it`s going in the net anyway.
