Here we have a few photos of the brand-spanking new Adidas Predator colourway, due to be rolled out on the end of specific player’s legs (RVP’ll wearing them against Milan) across tonight’s Champions League fixtures.

Colourwise, they’re bold. Definitely bold. Adidas are calling it ‘slime’ and it’s difficult to argue. Indeed, they’re on the Dulux colour chart somewhere between ‘Pond Scum’ and ‘Flubber’.

We’ve also got a couple of photos tacked on the end of the official Adidas matchball that will be used during the Champions League final in Munich come May, which is also on the ‘slimey’ side…

    All clubs should do what the QPR youth team have done and ban coloured boots. Allow them black and maybe white and thats it.

    Its a good idea as then players wont be out with a broken foot or toe because someone stepped on them and theyd rather wear paper thin boots as a fad.

    Daniel Schwaab was wearing these boots in last nights Champions League Match. Bayer vs Barca.

    i say: why not.
    i mean: why not have black boots and a white ball, ffs?

    i honestly don’t know what all the fuss is about. let them wear pink boots with red dots on them. who cares. what matters is how the players actually play and not how fancy (or not) their boots are.
    why is it that most fans are liberal about a player’s sexual orientation, skin colour or intelligence but when a player wears colourful boots they are deemed stupid and should be banned.

    tl;dr:
    who gives a sh*t about the boot colour, what matters is how they play

    I couldn’t give a toss what colour boots players wear as long as they play well in them. Would you begrudge your team’s star striker wearing pink boots if he notched 25 goals per season? Probably not.

    What happened to all the plastic shit that used to be the whole point of Predators?

    Did they realise it was a completely pointless gimmick?

    Nay! Weren’t there better times when the CL ball used to have black stars except in the final where they were red? You’d know something’s up, this match is huge.

    Now they look like they’re on LSD and you have to look really careful for the third seam on the right to see the red dot that means it’s the final ball.

    lol……i think they should just make em transparent….

    I have to say, I like it. I love the color combination. It is also unisex.
