There is a dizzying amount of goalkeeper glove choices. Soccer goalie gloves can have finger protection or without fingersaves. Goalkeeper gloves can come in a variety of cuts such as flat or classic cut, roll, negative, or a hybrid cut.
Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has been ruled out for between four and six weeks with a broken finger. The year-old suffered the injury in training ahead of England's friendlies against Germany and Brazil, and is one of seven withdrawals from the squad. Butland was out for over a year after injuring his ankle on international duty against Germany in March
Many Keepers don't understand why all gloves don't come with thumb protection. The only instance where we would recommend a thumbsave is in the case of a pre-existing injury, and then we would most likely recommend taping your thumb over a fingersave! Great Question!
The present invention relates to a goalkeeper's glove and, in particular to an inner hand portion of a goalkeeper's glove which includes four front finger regions, a thumb region, a hand region, and a wrist region, the four front finger regions and the thumb region having fingertip pieces, a carrier layer covering the inner hand portion; and an external padding layer put on the carrier layer, with the external padding layer having thickenings provided in regions of the fingertip pieces of the front finger regions, the thumb region, and in a transition region between the hand and wrist regions, and with the thickness of respective thickenings increasing in directions from the hand region toward the wrist region and toward free ends of the finger and thumb regions, respectively, so that the thickening portions of the padding layer form a cavity. German Patent No. The external padding layer is formed of an elastic foamed material and is cast on a finished glove, with the inner hand portion being already connected with other conventional elements of the glove.
By s1rusAugust 18, in Training and Coaching Chat. Had an "ok" training session this Sunday just gone. Did some fitness, then went onto some Def v Att, then I asked the guys to do some wing crosses at me.
The pregame taping ritual adds much needed support to some of the joints most susceptible to injury as a goalkeeper. Like the use of finger spines in glovesfinger taping adds stability and lessens your risk of finger injury. On our last visit to Seattle Sounder training facility, Starfire, Stef showed us how he tapes his before big games.

It is essentially synonymous with skier's thumbalthough the latter has more of an acute injury connotation. The repetitive breaking-of-necks of small game rabbits and such resulted in chronic injury to the ulnar collateral ligament of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb with weakening and eventual tear. Gamekeeping and poaching have largely fallen by the wayside as a recreational activity.
Skier's thumb, also known as Gamekeeper's thumb, is an injury to the ulnar collateral ligament UCLwhich is located in the metacarpophalangeal MCP joint where the thumb meets the hand. The purpose of the UCL is to keep the thumb stable in order to pinch objects. An injury to the UCL can be painful and result in a loss of function and pinch strength.
