Liverpool Lad goes the match in full kit and shinnies. Stringvest wears the grey stadium jacket from 1991 with Liddel on the back. 

Prefer Aldo, myself.

Aren't shirts for next season signed off for production 6 months or so in advance of the release date? What kits the team will be wearing next season would have to be decided upon by Christmas at the latest I'd have thought. I suppose we'll get confirmation of an extension to the NB deal or the announcement of a switch to a new supplier by October or November.

I think we should fuck nike off and get umbro then sign a deal with kit bag to pay us a tenner and 5 bags of space raiders a season like Everton.

Everton's deal also comes with free posters of a make-believe stadium you can hang on your office wall or post to your twitter account to brag to all your friends about how good you're going to be once it's built.

I’ve just bought some New Balance trainers in solidarity.

 

Ok, maybe it was because they do wide fitting.

The right time to switch to Nike was 1996, as they were growing faster than Reebok in the football market. They had pretty much overtaken Umbro and were catching up with Puma. Adidas were still the market leaders back then. What with Nike taking control of merchandising (what little of it there was back then) as was their way, it might have given the commercial department (what little of it there was back then) a kick up the arse. Plus, Nike were probably making their best stuff in that late-90s period. They only had Arsenal from the PL back then, but had taken over some key contracts with some of the biggest international sides like Brazil, Italy and Netherlands and gave all those teams some boss designs over that period. It's only later when Nike and Adidas were about par that Nike started chucking out template stuff for all their teams.

 

Under Moores and Parry, we seemed to extend sponsorship deals with existing sponsors like Reebok and Carlsberg every few years without really looking into whether anyone else could offer better. Yes, a long-term business relationship is good for the most part but you can let opportunity pass you by and very quickly get stuck playing catch-up with your competitors. The question "Why are we so far behind the Mancs?" was probably always answered with a shrug of the shoulders and a mumbled "We just are".

Well it seems it's not as imminent as yesterday.

They’ve quite obviously issued this because, after the Nike news broke, JW shat himself at the thought of waking up in the middle of the night in his master cabin on the yacht, with my face centimetres from his, hissing “Where is Bruno fucking Fernandes, you cunt...”
