How about taking the financial hit and not doing a new kit and this stop taking the p1ss out of the supporters who have been served up predominately utter rubbish for a decade or so.

Changing the kit year in year out feels like another rip off of the loyal support.


Imagine how excrement we’d be if we didn’t have the additional money coming in though!

Yeah possibly but lets say we sell 3,000 shirts ex VAT with a GM of £15 each gives you £45K which in reality is one mid earner player.

Might be the mid-earning player who scores the winning goal that wins promotion/saves your from relegation.

A mid-earning player will probably be better than a rough diamond plucked from the Spanish third division.

Haven't heard or seen anything about the new design or away colours etc but believe it's on sale 15/16th June.

A  sublimated shirt costs to make about 15 quid, 3000 shirts at 45  gives you a better idea of what the club gets.

I think if the club moved away from Errea would give the club even more money because I are all Errea’d up.

Is there a reason why we haven’t moved, there seem to be a number of clubs with long term deals with them .. something smells fishy to me.

We won't be changing any season soon unfortunately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

I’m not sure why my comment got red crosses.

Clubs change their kit supplier every few years to freshen things up. The point I was making, fans are less likely to buy a winter coat etc because they already have one.

In the past 15 years we have changed suppliers once and have the same sponsors on everything, we must be the only club in the EFL to have both of these factors and it is both boring and lazy. A change is needed to get this club where it needs to be commercially. I’m sure this would stack up against other clubs.

When was the last time this club freshened anything up?  

I'm not inclined to agree with you about the merits of changing shirt suppliers or sponsors, providing work is done in the background to benchmark and manage the relationships to get the most out of them. The question is are we doing as well as we could be?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

But unfair on Robles. Don't forget he was an integral part of the squad that achieved our most successful Checkatrade trophy campaign ever
