Freddie Sears: A Footie Sock Too Far

image

ZUMAPRESS/KEYSTONE Press for Kickette.com

What the hell is this?

We’re all for supporting the youth of today, especially the hot youngins frequenting the pitch full of energy and puppy like behaviour. But this? We simply cannot accept.

Base layers are evil. We all know and accept this fact. Some of us dedicate our lives to the eradication of these ab-blocking, thigh-concealing monstrosities.  And now to see West Ham’s Freddie Sears take footie socks to thigh high level with the aim of covering every available inch of bare skin?

How could he so blatantly disregard our feelings and dreams (and dreams with feelings) like that?

Pray for his soul, Kickettes.  Let’s hope this disturbing sock shift doesn’t become a trend.

    He's way too cute to be covering himself up in this way – his team mate Bellamy however, can pull his right over his head for all I care!

    Luckily I didn’t want to see this particuler set of legs anyway.

    I hate to buck the trend here, but I kinda like it – it has a touch of the slutty school girl about it, no? It is a look Cristiano did to perfection aussi.

    …. what are they teaching the youth of today?? so horrid! he has the makings to be a hottie one day, look at that adorable face, someone needs to break him of this habit for the good of all football-kind (okay for the good of us, but whateves)

  5. congratulations! says:

    yes we can!

    Sadly I have seen a few players do this. Not a good move

  7. The Fourth Official says:

    Lord, that's just SO disgraceful and disrespectful to all of us fans. :P

    Major BOO!!!! BOO! BOO!

    David Villa does this too. I don't understand it, don't their legs get hot when they're playing?

    I agree with LTG – red card him until the socks come down. Then he can return to the pitch. As for base layers (nothing is more evil than perhaps Elen Rives), those who insist on wearing them should be dealt with by those who love them best. Frank, I'm talking to you about those awful layers covering up your perfect thighs and yes I'll deal with you when I'm in London baby. London baby, London.

    I don't see how the socks pulled up that far doesn't annoy them to death… I tried that once with my footie socks during a match and during halftime I had to roll them back down to my knees.

    You’d Think He’d Wanna Show Off His Legs .. No ?!
    Hmm Wnat A Mysteryy.. Must Be Someone Behind This, A Girlfriend Maybe?

    Freddie, you’re young so we’ll forgive you just this once…just know for future reference this is a totally unacceptable look for any footballer – rippling flesh good, nylon bad.

  15. Venice says:

    Actually I’ve seen it on a few ballers already…luckily usually none particularly interesting.
