A doctor who treats people on the verge of suicide due to gambling addiction says clinics are “full of young men in football shirts”.

The damning comments come as the NHS revealed it had seen a 42 per cent increase in demand for treatment related to betting issues across England.

Dr. Matt Gaskell, a psychologist who works with patients struggling with gambling addictions, said the industry was increasing the number of suicidal men going to A&E.

Speaking to The Times at the start of the World Cup, a major driver of football betting, he blasted betting companies’ “predatory tactics”.

Dr Gaskell continued: “People start gambling as soon as they wake up in the morning; they play in the shower, play while driving to work. The NHS takes note.

“There has been an increase in the number of people coming to A&E in crisis, in a state of suicide. People are completely desperate, begging for help and seeing suicide as a real escape.

According to Dr. Gaskell, three quarters of the patients are men and most are in their thirties.

He added: “One of the first things I noticed was that the groups were full of young men wearing football shirts. It didn’t stop.

The NHS stopped accepting money from the gambling industry to help fund treatment for people with addictions at the start of this year.

At the time, the head of mental health for England said he was ‘heavily influenced’ by patients who felt uncomfortable using a service paid for by the companies they accuse of their problems.

Between April and December last year, 668 people with the most serious gambling addiction problems were referred to NHS gambling clinics.

That was up from 575 during the same period in 2020, an increase of 16.2%, according to NHS England.

The North of England has the highest proportion of at-risk gamblers, with 4.4% of adults in the North West and 4.9% in the North East being most at risk of addiction.

Overall, around 0.5% of the UK adult population, or around 246,000 people, are thought to be at risk of some form of gambling addiction and 2.2 million are at risk.

The industry makes profits of over £14 billion a year from gambling in the UK.

GambleAware’s accounts show it raised £16million between April and December last year in voluntary donations from the gambling industry to fund a range of processing services.

These include NHS gaming clinics, which received £1.2million in 2020/21.

Overall voluntary commitments to GambleAware last year included £1m from William Hill, just over £4m from Bet365 and £4m from Entain.

Police raids on properties across the UK ahead of the World Cup opening ceremony yielded an estimated £500,000 worth of fake football shirts today

Four tonnes of fake football shirts were seized by police in raids ahead of the World Cup opening ceremony today (November 20) – worth £500,000. Cops have raided jails and homes across the country as part of a crackdown on counterfeit products, which they say are linked to organized crime groups.

They arrested six people and seized £12,000 in cash in coordinated raids, led by City of London Police. Photos released by the force show hundreds of fake shirts in a warehouse and on a market stall.

Detective Sergeant Matthew Hussey said: “We regularly see links between the trade in counterfeit goods and organized crime groups. Counterfeiting is one of the main methods used by these groups to make money and allows them to finance serious crimes such as drug trafficking and money laundering. .

“We always urge fans to think twice before buying counterfeit products, and we will continue to work with our partners to take action against those who sell them.”

Address searches in Bristol and Northampton have recovered £250,000 worth of fake football shirts. Meanwhile, a large amount of counterfeit England shirts, FIFA World Cup badges and £2,000 cash were found at four premises in Leeds, West York.

And in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, shirts were seized from a warehouse and £10,000 in cash was found at a residential property, a police spokesman said.

Marcus Evans, Deputy Director of Intelligence and Enforcement at the Intellectual Property Office, said: “Criminal networks seek to exploit (fan) loyalty for their own financial gain by targeting the market with illegal counterfeit products – with little or no regard for their quality or safety.

Four tonnes of fake football shirts have been seized by cops in pre-World Cup raids – worth £500,000. Cops have raided jails and homes across the country as part of a crackdown on counterfeit products, which they say are linked to organized crime groups.

“We are pleased to support increased law enforcement activity aimed at suppressing the sale of these illicit goods, working in partnership to help protect the public from this type of crime.”

All those arrested have since been released under investigation.

Italy are one of the most successful teams in World Cup history, lifting the prestigious trophy four times.

Sadly, the European champions will miss the tournament this year as Qatar hosts the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Here’s a look at Italy’s five most successful World Cup kits:

1994 World Cup – Finalists

JUNE 28, 1994: DANIELE MASSARO OF ITALY DRIBBLE THE BALL DURING ITALY’S 1-1 DRAW WITH MEXICO IN A 1994 WORLD CUP MATCH AT RFK STADIUM, WASHINGTON DC Mandatory Credit: Rick Stewart/ALLSPORT

The 1994 World Cup was held in the United States of America where Arrigo Sacchi’s team entered the tournament as one of the strongest teams with Roberto Baggio, Gianfranco Zola and Antonio Conte at their arrangement.

Italy fought their way through the group stages to second place with four points after struggling against Ireland and Mexico, but a crucial win over Norway kept their World Cup run going.

The Italians secured back-to-back 2-1 victories in the round of 16 against Nigeria and in the quarter-finals against Spain.

The semi-finals saw Italy collide with Hristo Stoichkov-led Bulgaria, but another brace from Roberto Baggio sealed their progress to the final.

The final stage was a goalless draw with Brazil, which ended in a penalty shootout where the South Americans emerged victorious.

The shirt worn featured the iconic blue with an almost holographic pattern, as well as stylish detailing on the cuffs reflecting the colors of the Italian flag. The old school collar was also a nice touch.

1934 World Cup – Champions

In the second edition of the most prestigious tournament in the world of football, Italy won the trophy for the first time in its history.

Italy started the tournament with a 7-1 victory over the United States, with Angelo Schiavio scoring a hat-trick and Raimundo Orsi grabbing a brace.

The quarter-finals saw Italy held to a 1-1 draw by Spain, but Italy would win on penalties and then book a place in the final to face CSSR after beating Austria 1-0.

The Italians pulled off a five-goal thriller with CSSR and emerged 3-2 winners. The kit is a very simple design – a blue long-sleeved jersey.

But rather than the Italian crest as we know it today, it featured both the Savoia family crest and the Fasces. At that time, Italy was ruled by fascist leader Benito Mussolini.

1938 World Cup – Champions

The 1938 World Cup in France saw Italy’s dominance continue as they defended their trophy and cemented themselves at the top of world football.

In the round of 16, Italy had to wait until extra time to defeat Norway, as a 94th-minute goal from Silvio Piola secured victory.

Piola continued to score, grabbing a quarter-final brace against France.

Italy booked their place in the final with a convincing 2-1 win over Brazil in the semi-finals.

The 1938 World Cup saw Italy sport a kit similar to that of the 1934 tournament. However, Italy actually wore an all-black version in the final to avoid facing the French opponent.

It was probably another nod to the fascist regime in Italy.

1982 World Cup – Champions

The 1982 World Cup saw Italy lift the trophy for the third time in their history and for the first time since 1938.

Italy had a strong start to the World Cup, beating Brazil and Argentina in Group A before being drawn into the second group.

The second part of the groups allowed Italy to narrowly qualify for the semi-finals after drawing all three of their group matches against Peru, Cameroon and Poland.

In the semi-final, Italy collided with Poland. Enzo Bearzot’s side eventually secured victory over Poland as Paolo Rossi’s brace saw the Italians through to the final with a 2-0 win.

Paolo Rossi scored the opening goal of the final against Germany before Marco Tardelli and Alessandro Altobelli added two more.

The 1982 kit had the iconic blue shirt with the Italian crest on the left side of the chest. In addition, the edge of the sleeves and the collar highlighted the colors of the Italian flag.

2006 World Cup – Champions

Italy ended their 24-year wait and equaled the record for most World Cup victories, winning their fourth tournament, with another final victory in 2006.

Italy started their tournament in Group E alongside Ghana, the United States and the Czech Republic, topping the group with seven points after earning two wins and a draw.

A bit of luck in the final moments of their last 16 clash against Australia saw Francesco Totti convert a penalty to keep their World Cup campaign alive.

Italy had one of the strongest teams in the tournament, consisting of Francesco Totti, Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Andrea Pirlo, Fabio Cannavaro and many more.

The quarter-finals saw a much more dominant Italian performance as they beat Ukraine 3-0, with Luca Toni getting the goalscoring pick.

Italy met Germany in a highly anticipated semi-final which was very dramatic, as two late extra-time goals from Fabio Grosso and Alessandro Del Piero secured a place in the final for the first time since 1994.

The final saw Marco Materazzi grab the headlines, scoring an equalizer against France and receiving a game-changing header from France captain Zinedine Zidane.

Italy won the match 6-4 on penalties.

The Italy 2006 World Cup shirt featured the iconic blue shirt, but the crest sponsor and kit number were all placed in the center of the shirt. The numerals were gold rather than white, and the shoulders had a black border.

6/8 is a good mark at this level

As the World Cup approaches, can you identify these classic international football shirts that have stood the test of time?

Take this brain teaser quiz to see if you can recognize your favorite kits from around the world, featuring players from the likes of Brazil, Germany and England who are all taking part in this year’s tournament.

It comes as a search by 2,000 football fans has revealed the greatest international football shirt of all time, the blue and white striped 1986 World Cup home shirt worn by Diego Maradona during the infamous tournament.” hand of God”.

England’s World Cup-winning 1966 Umbro red stripe came second, followed by Brazil’s 1970 home shirt made by Athleta International and notably worn by Pele when he led his country to victory.

Also remembered are Belgium’s Adidas home shirt from 1984 and England’s once-maligned Admiral home shirt from 1982.

A spokesperson for CopyBet, who commissioned the research and developed the quiz, said: “Football fans remember the kits with great fondness and fondness, and we wanted to celebrate that ahead of the World Cup by finding out the best international kits of all time.

“Despite a difficult relationship between England fans and the 1986-winning Argentina side, Diego Maradona’s legendary performances mean this particular kit is still held in high regard as an icon of the game, as is the away shirt of the game. England of 1966 which saw them lift the trophy all those years ago.

“These shirts carry so much history and what a way to reflect their lineage ahead of the next tournament which is just around the corner.”

England’s third blue stripe from 1990 produced by Umbro and Cameroon’s sleeveless Puma stripe from 2002 – which was eventually banned by FIFA – also proved popular.

Other standout tops include Nigeria’s Nike 2018 home shirt – much sought after after its release, Wales’ retro-inspired Kappa 2006 red top and Jamaica’s Umbro 2021 away shirt.

While the Argentina 1986 jersey was selected as the greatest in international history, research has revealed that Brazil have had the most iconic jerseys over the years, followed by England and Argentina.

And Cameroon and Colombia also tend to ‘get it right’ when it comes to their football attire.

The study also identified what makes a band ‘iconic’ – with color combinations (18%), historical significance (16%) and respect for tradition (16%) the main considerations.

Four in 10 adults surveyed view replica tops as fashion items – with 1990s shirts seen as the most stylish, followed by those released in the 1980s.

Despite this, 48% of football fans think current shirts are as good as before, suggesting 2020s tops could be coveted in the future.

More than a third (35%) who own a World Cup shirt from the past said they would love to own even more – 43% having a specific top they particularly want to get their hands on.

And they’re so determined to own such a strip that they’d be willing to spend an average of £140 on it – with 10% content to spend £400 or more, illustrating the demand for vintage shirts over the years as a fashion item .

But it remains to be seen whether fans of the two nations taking part in this year’s World Cup – Wales and England – will want to spend so much on their team’s final efforts.

On a scale of 1 to 10 – 10 being excellent – the Nike 2022 England home shirt scored an average of 5.91, while the Adidas Wales strip scored 6.03 among those polled.

And with 48 per cent of opinion the shirt a team wears can impact performance on the pitch – for better or worse – Wales and England could have a pretty poor tournament in store.

Conducted via OnePoll, the study found that of the 36% of non-England fans who intend to buy a replica shirt this year, 21% plan to buy a replica Brazil kit, while 18% are considering a USA. and Germany in the lead respectively.

Three Lions fans also voted for their favorite England top with the red stripe from the 1966 World Cup securing first place ahead of the Italia 1990 away kit.

A CopyBet spokesperson added: “Football shirts have become an important part of sport, especially when it comes to the World Cup.

“With an increase to 48 countries at the 2026 World Cup, there will be even more shirts to enjoy, with this survey highlighting the fun and excitement fans get from owning and wearing the best international shirts. offered.”

Puma, you’re all stuck. Nike, what have you done in the United States and Canada? Adidas, you’re making some style waves.

With millions of dollars at stake in retail sales, this year’s World Cup in Qatar has football fans sizing up the jersey – and what to buy. So far, there is no runaway winner who could earn popular status like Nigeria’s bright green, chevron shirt sold out in minutes at the last tournament in 2018.

Which kits certainly don’t dazzle in the eyes of some hardcore fans – and some outspoken players? Nike’s effort for Team USA, which failed to qualify four years ago. An enlarged and simple country crest sits centrally on white home shirts perceived as bland, as opposed to classic. Nike moved their swoosh logo to both sleeves.

A blue neck graphic has led to mocking comparisons to Stay Puft’s Marshmallow Man ghost hunters celebrity. And the USA away kit includes ice-tinted black Rorschach spots against royal blue.

“It’s ugly,” said fan Ryan Bender, 33. “The ones on the outside look like training shirts.”

Bender is a longtime soccer player, youth coach, and jersey collector in Los Angeles. It had few niceties in general for many kits from the big three outfitters: Nike (13 countries), Adidas (seven) and Puma (six). This is particularly the case for the range of front boxes, shields and other containers where numbers will go courtesy of Puma on away kits for Senegal, Morocco, Uruguay and more.

Puma is particularly angry with Switzerland’s QR symbol. The overall idea, Puma said, was to highlight the number of players. It’s also been compared among curmudgeons to the iPhone’s calendar icon.

“There is a lot of lack of creativity there. And to be honest, a lot of them look like jerseys you’d find at a roadside store,” Bender said of Puma’s kits.

While Bender has a few favorites, and he’s not the only one poking fun at American shirts, not everyone is unhappy. The top three companies are joined by six other brands with one country each. Nike, Puma and Adidas have made the use of recycled materials a priority.

“The Nike and Puma kits are stunning,” said Aron Solomon, 55, of Montreal. “Nike did a great job of bringing clean lines and just the right shade of color. For example, the Qatar home shirt.”

It referenced the host’s maroon kit with a jagged line of white triangles lining the sleeves in a design evoking the country’s flag. Think shark teeth.

When it comes to his own country, Canada, Solomon doesn’t mind the rejuvenated Reds taking to the pitch for their first World Cup appearance in 36 years wearing the same template-based kits they’ve had since June of the year. ‘last year. The shirts are traditional red and white with a maple leaf crest.

Like some American players who speak publicly about their outfits, Canadian defender Sam Adekugbe is disappointed.

“I just feel like every team should have a new kit for the World Cup because it’s a symbolic event. I don’t hate it, but I would have liked to have a new kit, just because it is something to cherish,” he said. Athleticism.

Nike cites a different design cycle for Canada as the reason the country is going without.

Solomon doesn’t like Adidas-designed shirts, especially home shirts from mighty Germany, where he lived for four years. It features a fierce wide black vertical stripe down the center against a white background as a tribute to the country’s 1908 home shirt.

“It looks like they’re wearing a bib,” he said.

The Adidas jerseys of four-time World Cup champions Germany, as well as Argentina, Mexico and other countries they have kitted out, include the company’s signature triple line trim on the shoulders in different colors. Kind of like sports shoulder pads.

Perhaps the most polarizing kit in the competition is Mexico’s away look, which some consider too flashy and others think it will last like Nigeria’s shirts last time out. The cream white kit has an all over red design of Mixtec art outlines to celebrate Mexico’s fighting spirit. There is a nod inside the back collar to the pre-Columbian deity Quetzalcoatl (so named by the Aztecs), also known as the Feathered Serpent.

“Those are my favorites of the whole tournament,” said fan Khloe Lewis, 27, of Somerville, Massachusetts. “I love the pattern and the contrast, but also that it’s inspired by historic and traditional Mexican design.”

As a hot topic, the World Cup kit debate often rages among fans yearning for their own shirt identity.

“The kits reach the emotions. It’s something that’s close to people’s hearts and it makes them very, very vocal about them,” said Mateo Kossman, senior product manager for the Adidas football apparel team who worked on the Mexico shirts. .

On November 20, when the World Cup kicks off, football will dominate at the Das Beer Garden sports bar in Jupiter, Florida. Growing up in Caracas, co-owner Alex Marquez, 44, started playing the “beautiful game” as a freshman. He puts down roots for the United States, Venezuela and Spain, the latter country of origin of his parents.

Marquez is pleased with the classic Spain home shirt in red from Adidas, worn with navy blue shorts and socks. The away kit – with travel generally being more adventurous – is another story. It has light blue swirls with faint number lines on a white background and the bright colors of the country’s red and yellow flag for the shoulder stripes in a grand show of disharmony.

“It’s like the thing that goes around a baby’s crib,” Marquez said of the whirlwinds.

The blog four against four called the look exquisite, calling the wavy design a “geometric jellyfish pattern.”

Argentina have changed it, in terms of color, for their away shirts. Adidas released a classic white and blue striped home kit, but for the first time in the country’s history changed to a vibrant purple for the away shirt. It depicts the May sun and its long rays from the country’s flag, although the rays and a background design look like flames. Purple is meant to represent gender equality, as well as overall diversity and inclusion. And the Adidas triple lines on the shoulders match.

How has purple played among World Cup fans?

“Like everything we create, it’s important that the story is understood and told,” said Andrew Dolan, a senior product manager at Adidas who worked on the Argentina shirts. “I think everyone appreciates what we’re trying to do.”

At 10, Zain Ennaoui is a small fan with big opinions on football shirts. About the new purple for Argentina, which has shaken some football fans, the fifth-year student from Brooklyn politely said: “It’s good in its own way.”

Zain supports Morocco, where his father is from, but he too enjoys extravaganzas outside of Mexico. He understands that most of the shirts among the 32 countries heading to Qatar have cultural significance. That said, South Korea’s many-coloured away kit (black with yellow, blue and red brush strokes) is a tough sell for him, despite his nod to Taegeukgi, the symbol on the country’s flag. .

“It’s like someone thought it was a good idea to get a paint gun and spray it everywhere. It didn’t work,” Zain said.

It’s a draw on which the look of the United States is more downright despised by critics. The football website football titles ranked Canada’s tragedy as the lowest of Nike’s efforts. American shirts were second to last.

“Looks like you’d wear it to a Grateful Dead concert,” Kent Gethmann, 38, of Spencer, Iowa, said of the blue and black away jersey.

That, the idea of ​​lending street life to World Cup clothing, might just be the point.

“I would,” Brandon Williams, a Los Angeles menswear stylist for celebrities and star athletes.

“I would wear it oversized with shorts, white Nike Air Force Ones and a rear snapback,” Williams said. “I’d throw a sweater over my shoulders like Carlton from The prince of Bel-Airand I’m ready for Sunday brunch.”

Year 6 students received the kits after winning a skills challenge hosted by academy chief executive Dan Edward.

He challenged students to break the current record for the Marshall Skills Academy ‘nut and bolt’ test – a test of manual dexterity the academy uses to assess potential apprentices.

Mr Edwards pledged to provide them with branded football kits if they broke the record, which they did. The students visited Marshall HQ at Cambridge Airport to receive their awards.

Mr Edwards said: ‘We hope this will inspire them to apply for our world-renowned engineering apprenticeship one day.’

The visit follows a partnership between Marshall Skills Academy and the Cambridge United Community Trust which held a STEM workshop for pupils earlier this year.

Have Palace and Gucci just released this year’s best football shirts? https://viajaralairelibre.com/have-palace-and-gucci-just-released-this-years-best-football-shirts-2/ Sat, 15 Oct 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://viajaralairelibre.com/have-palace-and-gucci-just-released-this-years-best-football-shirts-2/ Palace and Gucci might not seem like natural collaborators.

Palace and Gucci might not seem like natural collaborators. One is a London-based streetwear brand, while the other is one of Italy’s most famous luxury brands. In recent years, however, the gap between the two has narrowed and their recently announced collection is neither surprising nor unexpected.

Palace

What’s more unexpected is the collection’s obvious footballing influence. The collaboration features three football shirts, each a contender for Shirt of the Season, while fusing Gucci’s luxury heritage with the tongue-in-cheek imagery of Palace.

The first jersey nods to Gucci’s Italian roots, with the national team’s signature blue overlaid with Gucci’s double G monogram and gold sponsor-style logo. The Italian influence continues on another of the shirts, which features Gucci’s green and red colors in a Hechter-style stripe down the center of its white base. Both shirts also feature a special Palazzo Gucci club crest.

The third and final shirt is over there. While the traditional shirt styles are still used – that crest, a Palace sponsors logo and a Campione manufacture badge – the entire shirt is covered in an enlarged photograph of strawberries. All three kits date back to the early 90s, with Italia 90s and Serie A reaching global audiences.

While the shirts are all bangers, the two brands’ involvement in football also makes sense. Earlier this year, Gucci signed a huge deal with Jack Grealish and started working with Leah Williamson, with more footballers rumored to be signing partnerships with the brand soon. Gucci also collaborated with adidas on a collection that included a pair of loafers designed to look like Copa Mundials. This collection has even been modeled by Paul Pogba, Serge Gnabry, Jude Bellingham and David Alaba.

More broadly, luxury brands are more interested in football. Off-White recently joined AC Milan as the club’s ‘Style and Culture Curator’ – whatever that means – while Ajax worked with Daily Paper, Real Madrid reunited with Y-3 and Moncler s’ is associated with Inter Milan. So now is the right time for Gucci to get involved.

Palace, on the other hand, have used football aesthetics since their early days. One of the brand’s defining moments came a decade ago when Palace collaborated with Umbro on a series of football shirts. The design was significant, as Palace referenced England Italia ’90 shirts for the release. Palace have also created football shirts with Moschino and in collaboration with Kappa.

This love affair with football reached its peak in 2019, when Palace’s longstanding adidas collaboration extended to Juventus. The London-based label created Juventus’ fourth kits, which were worn by the club against Genoa. The wider collection included training equipment, goalkeeper gloves and a whole range of accessories.

Perhaps the Gucci x Palace shirts are the latest step in the Italian brand’s entry into the football market. He has signed players and referenced football culture in the past, so working with a brand known for its football aesthetic seems like an obvious next step. Whatever Gucci’s intention, all three shirts are some of the best around.
