    Already ordered new boots for 2019/20.
  3. Bucks Returns

    Final game of the season today and we put in a good display / performance, much better than last week anyway against a strong SCR Reserves side who have just won the League Charity Cup and look set to be promoted again this season. First half was mainly them bombarding us particularly with long throws but we kept them out and although I didn't have any saves to make really I swept up well and we knocked the ball about well at the back. Only real incident was a long punt into our box, my CB Jay and I crowded out their forward, I got the ball away from him and as I went to gather the loose second ball, their striker tried to kick my legs out from under me. The ref didn't see it, and I pulled the player up on it and he gave me some flannel about he was looking up at the ball. There is a massive difference between a tangle of legs and someone deliberately kicking you. Second half we kept them at bay well for about the first 15-20 minutes, then disaster struck. A simple ball to our CM Gabi, who just had to play a simple pass, but no went for a wonder through ball and passed it straight to one of their players who picked out a pass to their top scorer, who cut in from our right, embarrassed our RB, dummied Jay, then rolled it low to my right as I stepped left. 0-1. The second goal wasn't long coming, against crappy play from us saw possession given up easily, Kieron the RB again beaten softly to a 50/50 and their tubby old forward raced into the box and drilled it low into the bottom corner. 0-2. I think I could have done better with this one, think I made his mind up for him a bit. We huffed and puffed but with no recognised striker in the team we struggled to test their keeper. Dare I say it if we did have a forward this might have been a different game. Trying to get back into it I started taking Free Kicks further and further up the pitch, even venturing into their half at one point, but again the flick ons came to nothing. Did make one smart one on one stop late on, basically what I should have done with the second goal. Then disaster, virtually the last kick of the game, Jay had the ball top left of our 18 yard box, I called him to lay it back as he had no options, instead of playing the ball to me he laid it virtually square, about 10 yards in front of me to their top scorer who ran in and knocked it past me as I tried to narrow the angle and 0-3 game over. We definitely gave a better account of ourselves this week against a better opponent too. I see positives for next season, but reliability has been a huge issue this season and it would be nice to get a consistent team out most weeks which would probably make things easier and performances better. Now for 6 weeks of rest before we start pre season, to be honest I am already dreading it and don't know what to do with myself on Sunday mornings now. Kit: All Blue Bayer 04 Leverkusen Kit. Boots: Adidas Copa Mundial's with Black & Tropical Blue laces. Gloves: Pope's Captor Pure.

    Not too sure why they have a different design. The previous ones had the same design on both models.

    Not seen them on proper British sites yet, but Keepersport.co.uk are taking pre orders on the new Silver Adidas gloves with the Hybrid cut in both the URG 1.0 and 2.0 forms if you are interested.
  6. Pope's Captor Pure

    I don't know the exact ins and outs as I haven't seen what happened etc but I was told there was a disagreement between a GT competition winner and Christoph the Company owner and he may have said something inappropriate (racist).
  7. Pope's Captor Pure

    Well I've just bought 3 more pairs for next season and I still have one unused pair, the pair I have worn a few times and the first pair I got that are a bit on the Small side. So yes I'd definitely recommend the gloves. I know the company are frowned upon on GT but the product is very decent.
  8. Pope's Captor Pure

    I stopped using them as I was using them in a warm up and I literally dropped every shot and cross, this was just after the latex turned pink and I started using Adidas at the time. I then wore them in a Surrey Cup game and had a bit of a mare and never wore them after that until yesterday. Grip was fine so I must have just had an off day when I used them in that warm up. Not only is the grip solid but the durability is remarkable too.

    I thought they were as they made the Team Mode pack in the Hybrid and then the Initiator pack, but the last two they haven't made the hybrid in weirdly. Next time they release them I will give them another try. The pair I had fit nice but the latex on the 2018 Predators was absolutely dreadful, the URG is so much better.

    Not the best picture I admit, but Kevin Trapp today was wearing the next Adidas colourway to go with a bunch of Silver boots they are bringing out in June. August's release which I will also be keeping an eye out for sees the Predator Boots in a pale blue and black colourway so I imagine the Predator gloves will also see that colour too.
  11. Pope's Captor Pure

    Because you bumped this thread I used these again today. Still very decent gloves, first time I have worn them in almost 6 months too. 18th November to be precise.
  12. Bucks Returns

    Today went exactly as I expected, turned up with a bare 11 again, which included our 63 year old manager, a player who was injured but said he would come so we could field a team and our starting Left Back playing his first game back from injury after 3 months out, not to mention one of our players turned up 4 minutes before kick off. We lost 6-1 but there is no way over two games this team are 10-2 better than us. We started slow again and were punished again. First goal came from down our left, a low cross was met by their forward about 7 yards out who hit it first time, it must have literally just missed my left hand. Second goal the ball was played through, I came out and the guy scuffed a horrible bubbly shot, I got across to it as it kicked up, and my palm on it put it out to their forward who was the only player following in. Third goal was typical us, a corner from our left, and an unmarked header across goal into the far bottom corner, for some reason the man on the post had disappeared. Fourth goal was a shot from the right, I dived to my left as it took a massive deflection off my RB's stomach and in, to my right. Fifth goal we gave them all the time in the world and their striker curled it far top corner. It was one of those I got across the goal and thought I've got this and as I was diving through the air I could just see the ball moving further and further away from me. That was half time 5-0. Second half we conceded early again, same player again unmarked just inside the top right corner of our box, took a touch and curled it far top corner. We got a consolation and played a lot better second half but I think everyone is drained now and just wants the season to end so we can recharge our batteries, get a consistent team out next season and go again. Kit: All Green Puma Crystal Palace Goalkeeper kit. Boots: Black Adidas Predator 18.1 SG's. Gloves: First Half: Reusch Prisma Pro G3 Duo's, Second Half: Pope's Captor Pure.

    I will give them a run out in warm ups and training. Not sure I feel confident enough to use them in a game at the moment.

    The wrist can work, it does on the Adidas Predator gloves, the Reusch Pure Contact II's and the Nike gloves. This was just too big from the start unfortunately, not totally sure what KA / Kaliaaer had in mind making the wrist entry so big. Ease of getting the gloves on and off?

    Apparently not... https://www.prodirectsoccer.com/products/Reusch-Fit-Control-Pro-G3-SpeedBump-Evolution-Black-Lime-Green-Mens-Goalkeeping-Gloves-Negative-Cut-Black-Lime-Green-195542.aspx
