Putting Famous Football MYTHS to the TEST

Jun 11, 2021
So today I wanted to take a look at

football

myths

and see how many of them are actually true, so I think 10 of the most

famous

ones and we'll put them to the

test

. The first myth has to do with the curve, so inspired by David Beckham. free kick against Greece. I'm going to see if changing my free throw position from this to this will allow me to give the ball more curvature, so to

test

this I will take 10 shots from a natural 45 degree angle. and 10 shots from the zero degree angle and I come back with an average score for each position, so to measure if I can really put more spin on the ball, I have a ball here that will measure how much curve I can make. rows per minute so that will tell us that and I think the idea with this is the fact that if you pass from the side you can really get your foot around the ball and hopefully get more curves so we'll see if this is So.

It's actually true, so it's probably best to mention that when I took all these free kicks I was trying to get as much curvature on the ball as possible, so I started with a normal run and then moved on to the weird David Beckham style, based on what thought. I can see so far that the solid progress has definitely given me a lot more curve final one final one four two nine Now I'll add up the results at home and we can see what the difference really is. Collect all the data from the The ball and it came back with a curved result of 397.6 revolutions per minute for the normal runner and the David Beckham-style running came back with a result of 479.6 revolutions per minute, so this myth is really true and not just a little, but a lot, very, very. interesting results, so the next myth revolves around the valve with the soccer ball.

More Interesting Facts About,

They say kicking the ball into the valve will create more knuckles on a free kick. Let's see if it really works, so first we'll have some free kicks just by kicking the ball. ball anywhere on the ball, so the first night I didn't really know much difference, but it was hard to tell, so I decided to go back and find a way to measure if the valve made a difference. I'm back on the court to try this again today, this time I'm relying on technology to answer this question, so we'll look at revolutions per minute, the lower the rest per minute, the harder the ball will hit. and if true we would expect to see a lower break per minute when hitting the valve, so yes let's find out, these are the average scores for knuckles, the lower the score the more knuckles there will be, as you can see there is no a real difference. between the two, so I can definitely say that this myth is false, so for the next myth I have two identical pairs of

football

boots and a hot water tree bath from Cristiano Ronaldo, so the story goes that Ronaldo soaked his boots in hot water before a game. to help speed up the braking process and create a more comfortable fit for your feet around the boot, so let's see if this really makes a difference, so I'll soak the boots in water for about 10 minutes to allow them to adjust to my feet and then let them dry slowly over the next few days to test which boot was more comfortable.

I decided to do it blindfolded to make sure there was no way to tell which boot was which. Well, they are not the most comfortable. They certainly don't feel it. Okay, I need to try to make the first ones. Okay, these feel more comfortable. These feel a little more comfortable. Although what are these, those are the ones that don't have a black mark, really yeah, no, yeah, no way, I mean, there's not much to it. but if I had to choose these would be the ones that well, yes, I would say that the myth is definitely not true.

I need to try one of these, they feel tighter, they are the same size but they feel much tighter, a little too tight. That's very strange, so I think with all the advice, at some point when you take a penalty, just hit it as hard as you can and it will probably score. Does any of that really ring true? So if this next myth I'm going to I'm comparing a power shot to a placement shot when it comes to pedaling, so I had a lot of shots just hitting the ball as hard as I could and a lot of shots placing the ball in the corners. 14 of 20 of my power shots.
It hit the back of the net while 16 of 20 placement shots scored a goal, so it was close, but after doing that test for myself, I would definitely choose to place a penalty over the power, so myth number five It's the claim that Vaseline will make your gloves grippier, let's find out, okay, I'm not sure if this is even legal, but it certainly feels grippy, so you're mad at me and we'll see if this works. These feel really grippy once again. I'm not sure if this is legal, but in-game, Mike, they feel like this definitely works well.
I'll just say that I'm not sure how, if this is allowed in the game. I don't see why not, but this definitely makes your gloves have more grip, so this myth is true. Now the next myth is the idea that shirt sales will be able to cover a player's transfer fee when he joins a new club and this is too good to be true so I decided to do some research. I found out that most of the revenue from jersey sales will go to the manufacturer, for example Adidas or Nike, and the club will receive a cut of between seven point five percent and twenty percent.
Let's say Ronaldo, for example, that it is thought that by joining Juventus the money earned from shirt sales would cover his £88 million transfer fee, so it is reported that Juventus sold 500,000 Ronaldo shirts to a price of around 70 pounds each, which is equivalent to 35 million. Take a portion of that and we have 3.5 million and that's a very long time. well below the £88m transfer fee, so I think it's fair to say that this myth is definitely not true. Now myth number seven is the jumping penalty. Does it actually give the penalty taker an advantage? Well now I'm going to do the jump so The other day I wasn't really convinced about the jump penalty so today I went back to try it and once again I'm not sure it really makes a difference, if anything it probably made me worse, maybe with a little practice.
I'm pretty good at it, but as far as I can tell, there's no real advantage to jumping before taking the penalty, so the next myth is about shin guards. They say smaller shin pads help you have better control and dribbling, so I've exaggerated a bit. a little and bought the smallest shin guards I could find and the largest ones. We're going to try them out for dribbling control and pace and see how much of a difference any of them make between the small shin pads and the large shin pads and a lot of players love wearing the very small shin pads and for good reason I definitely felt like I had more control when wearing the photos of small leggings, but the shin guards I was wearing were ridiculously large, so as long as you have a reasonably sized shin guard, I think the difference is minimal, but Overall, I would say this myth is true, so it is often It says that hitting the ball with the lace of your boot will generate more power than hitting it with the side of your foot.
Let's put that to the test, so this myth was pretty easy to prove. I did 10 shots with the side of my foot hitting the ball as hard as possible and 10 shots with the laces 60.7 miles per hour was the side foot and 63 miles per hour for the laces. This myth, as expected, is definitely true, okay? I have the helium tank and some soccer balls. I'm going to fill two with helium and two with regular air, so we'll move the tripod as far back as we can and then move closer, if there's any movement. in the ball we'll be able to see it pretty well, so I spent some time doing some shots with the helium ball and the normal ball and I'll be honest, there's literally no difference, you can't feel it.
It's no different, neither of them move anymore, if anything I took my best shots with the normal balls, but there is definitely no advantage to having a helium soccer ball, especially when it comes to knuckles, so yeah , I hope you enjoyed this video, if you did, please like, comment, subscribe, thank you. by watching and see you next time
