Text highlight color when embedded[edit]

To increase readibility, maybe we should add highlight color in text when embedded, the color itself is a bit lighter. (such as {{infobox officeholder}}).

And I found typo in goals 38 & goals 48. Hddty. (talk) 12:43, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

thank you, now fixed. Frietjes (talk) 15:39, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
@Frietjes: For color when embedded (in "Personal details", "Senior career", etc) what would you think to change to other color instead of white? In Michel Platini it changed by itself, not white. Hddty. (talk) 10:24, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
Hddty. in Michel Platini the subbox uses |header-color=lavender. any valid html color works. Frietjes (talk) 15:18, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
@Frietjes: I mean why not add that with color lavender in this infobox? Hddty. (talk) 12:16, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
Hddty. probably for historical reasons. if you would like to change the colouring, I suggest starting a thread at WT:FOOTY. Frietjes (talk) 13:33, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Dominant foot??[edit]

How is this missing?? THIS IS IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN SOCCER!! Can you fix this, please? George Rodney Maruri Game (talk) 06:52, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

No it's not. GiantSnowman 08:01, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. Totally unnecessary. Number 57 17:27, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

You probably don't play soccer. It is important when defining the line-up. A left-footed player might preferred over a right-footed one. Players using both feet are surely a great contribution to a team. Anyways, it is obvious that either you know little and/or no one else cares. Thanks for nothing...

P. S.: You might want to take some minutes to send a couple of e-mails and tell specialized sites to get rid of information about dominant feet. Example: http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/fernando-llorente/profil/spieler/35564 Also, to video game fans: http://sofifa.com/player/162131 And, please, also ignore research suggesting that "...studies have reported that soccer players' left-right preferences can be explained by the functional advantage gained by using their dominant leg (Dörge et al., 2002; Nunome et al., 2006). Thus, laterality allows soccer players to exercise precise control over their movements, which is also an important indicator of performance quality (Teixeira et al., 2011). Kicking direction is also influenced by laterality, and is one of the factors that has been evaluated in studies of goal-side selection in penalty kicking (Weigelt and Memmert, 2012).": https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4882477/ George Rodney Maruri Game (talk) 22:04, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

    • I've played football for nearly 30 years, so please don't make silly accusations like that. Number 57 22:30, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Career highlights and awards[edit]

Shouldn't we add the "Career highlights and awards" tab, like the one in NBA and NFL players? I know it's different, but it's an amazing way of showing more the greatness of a player to a reader and highlight it. I think we could estipulate using only "continental and world awards", like Champions League/World awards and titles and UEFA's/FIFPro's Teams of The Year, and for other continents too, obviously.

An "amazing" way to show the "greatness" of a player through "career highlights"? No. WP:NPOV / WP:OR applies. Football is not (thankfully) like American sports. GiantSnowman 19:23, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Nope. Kante4 (talk) 19:36, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Not a good idea. Will inevitably end in endless edit warring. Number 57 21:54, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Thankfully I'm Brazilian and not really an American sports fan... just trying to get a good idea from there. The way everything shows worthless awards together with major ones it's just stupid. And how it is not a Neutral Point of View? It shows facts, but it gives more highlight to important ones, just that. The Sandman (talk) 22:03, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
