Great ideas as always, I implemented most of it.

Kept the sports category buttons as I still like to use them for now.

- Show player cutouts on team pages option

I noticed some of the premier league player cutouts were poor quality so I wanted to show this better.

Now you can click on the small "person" icon at the top of the player list (on the team page) to show their transparent cutouts. I also added a search icon on the player page next to the cutouts to auto search google.

All premier league players now have a really nice 500x500 pixel transparent image hosted on premierleague.com which should show in the search results. It would be good if people could upload these better quality images to our site. I have already completed Arsenal.

Added to the player edit screen:

- Player outfitter
- Player agent


Both bits of data can sometimes be found on the transfermarkt.com website. Just click the contract search icon to automatically go to the website from the player page.

If you find any agents not listed, please list in a seperate thread and I will add them. Eventually I will setup an agent view page.

adidas is misspelled ;)

Also here you can see a list with the most popular brands which are providers of boots for soccer players (shorted by most popular to less):

Nike
adidas
Puma
Mizuno
Lotto
Umbro
Asics
Under Armour
New Balance

...and a concept about:

On FootballBootsDB.com, for example, you can get all the boots used by a player during a season:

Awesome, I would never have known about that website :)

Added "Kit" as a stop gap with a few boot models.

More to come... :)

- Much improved browse pages

https://www.thesportsdb.com/sport.php
https://www.thesportsdb.com/teams_main.php
https://www.thesportsdb.com/players_main.php
https://www.thesportsdb.com/events_main.php
https://www.thesportsdb.com/hall_of_fame.php

All pages now have the sport filter, breadcrumb, bigger images, random sports(if none selected).

Still wondering what to do with the browse TV page....

I think i'm just about done on the player improvements, I tried to think of every data point for now and the future.

One new feature to help out is the "Complete" percentage bar. Currently it checks for 10 pieces of data and artwork for each player and gives a score.

- Added player foot side
- Added Outfitter logo
- Added some new boots for Soccer
- Made it look nice (thx Ovokx)
- Added percentage complete bar for player data and artwork

After checking an old concept design (dated on January 2018, do you remember? hahah) almost all the info showed there is currently added. The only missing things are:

- Jersey Number
- Transfer indicators (costs and loans)
- Render image

Also I think that for deceased players, I would be great to add a field to add deceased date and, once this field is filled, stop counting the automatic year conversion.

Awesome, yes I had totally forgot that one :D

I have implimented 2 of the features

- Player 'action' render
- Team number


I think thats it for now, expanding the transfer history is quite a bigger job.
