  1. Brilliant article. As a Goalkeeper I’m a traditionalist as well, I still can’t see the appeal of a Short Sleeved GK shirt with or without a base layer. I’ve never really appreciated the move away from built in elbow padding either.

  2. Just a thought…

    Are there any players who have just used an arm warmer sleeve, rather than a full baselayer?

    I’m thinking of the kind of things that cyclists use to keep their arms warm in a short sleeve jersey.

    I’m fairly certain someone here would have picked up on it if so, but it strikes me as a possible option for a player on a short-sleeved team who wants to wear long sleeves, but doesn’t want to wear the extra layer on their torso.
