I reckon the burning (or possibly barely-smouldering) question has to be which colour boots will score the most goals in the World Cup – red, yellow, green, blue or tiger stripe on chevrons. You can bet your arthritic joints it won't be black. Mr SW, whose school class football matches consisted of 'shirts v skins' (Yes, even in January) would not be seen dead in a coloured boot.

    I think I saw a footballer playing in non-matching boots. I rather like the rainbow of colours now available, they cheer up the dull games. DD

    Orange I put my money on! I also want Holland to win the world cup as my good friend lives in the Netherlands (and now Blighty is out). And they sure know how to Part-hey!!

    you did indeed DD. Greizmann, who plays for France, has one pinky red boot and one blue. Most teams mix and match too so it doesn't look like any one colour is going to win.

    It'll depend on which colour is on the foot that kicks the goals :)

    Yep read your first post again and realised it was the individual player's boots and not the team. :oops:

    I think the tigers and zebras have been eliminated so down to the lime, orange, pale blue and pink! But then anyone playing in the final will probably be wearing a special gold pair.

    I'm not sure which colour is winning at the moment but odds on its orange or lime as most players seem to have a preference for these colours.

    Pale blue? I've seen hardly any in the World Cup though they seem much favoured by rugby league players. How odd!

    I thought the chap (s) with different coloured boots on each foot possibly had the different coloured boots because they didn't know their left from their right.

    PS I think the World Cup could be much improved if each match was played shirt v skin

    I actually quite like the colourful boots though I wouldn't like to clean them and a cousin's grandson is banned from bringing his in the house as they stink permanently, apparently (according to Nike) a fault with the glue.

    As for the 60's, Marrianne, my husband tells me that heading one of those old balls when they were wet was likely to result in a dislocated neck bone :lol:
