Football has evolved over the years. Some believe it has lost the essence, others think it has improved. Either way, in this article we tell 10 things have changed in football and that, at least the younger, They may not know:
DEPARTURE OF PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
Less than 20 years, separate teams out the field. First jumped into the field the visiting team what, normally, whistles and jeers received, then he jumped the local computer he received a standing ovation and applause of the audience.
FIXED NUMBERS AND NAMES ON T-SHIRTS
Names started to screen print shirts to mid 90. Before this, players wore the dorsal 1 al 11 so that, the same player, He could take a day following a back and a different. The headlines ranged from 1 al 11 and alternates 12 al 16 both inclusive. Today are 18 the man squad.
Goalkeepers could catch the ball with your hands even if a partner passed it voluntarily, that is to say, the assignment is not penalized. This standard was approved in the Olympic Games of Barcelona '92 protests of the goalkeepers who had to put the batteries and start to dominate the game with his feet.
Most players wore black boots. In the Spanish league you could say that the pioneers were Morientes (which he was placed a red boots) Y Alfonso (who became famous for his white boots), in the mid 90. But nevertheless, one of the first to put some boots white was Alan Ball in England.
IBAN REFEREE IN BLACK AND SPOKE WITH PRESS

VICTORIES numbered COLON INSTEAD OF THREE

There is an error in point 9, photographic lenses exist since it was invented photography, instead telephoto lenses (zoom) They were popular from the late 50.
I liked much football before. I only, the assignment to the porter was something that had to be removed, because most teams made it to waste time, but everything else, there was no touch at all, football was fine as was, the dorsal 1 al 11, the 2 points for a win, the referees talking to the press as normal… Then football was much nicer and exciting, nothing to do with the “shit” that is modern football.
And the referee dressed in black, not colorful. It was much more aesthetic and formal.
