They should have released a song for the occasion.

 

Only 25 years from Trophies - Gene Pitney. 

 

In the year 1995 - Evans & Zagreb.

 

Too much to young - Specials. For any Blues in their youth at the time. 
 

 

They should adapt the Willie Nelson classic.

 

Now the years have turned to silver

All my life I've loved in vain

I have watched the Redshite heaven

Blue eyes crying in the rain.

I love in that assessment of  the combined wealth of the two sugar daddys that he hasn't managed to come up with one single shred of evidence to back up his claims that they have or are about to pour unlimited funds into a mid table ( at best ) football club .

I suppose that level of optimism is the last vestiges of the desperate. 

Going back 11 years, the club with the richest owners in England - possibly the world - wasn't Man City or Chelsea; it was QPR.  Lakshmi Mittal joined Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore, giving the club's owners a combined wealth of £22 billion, at a time when you could buy Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso and Carlos Tevez for a combined £135 million - less than 0.5% of the owners' wealth.

Of course, we all know what happened next - QPR bought all the world's best players, built a magnificent new stadium and established dominance over England and Europe for the next decade or more.

9m a season kit deal with Hummels. Another huge deal.

It's a really savvy move- less money to lose if there's a worldwide catastrophe. All those clubs with massive kit deals and sponsorships are fucked.

Not sure this is real but for a blooshite shirt it's not bad.

Seen that round before mate, it's just a design done by some arse on the net somewhere. They've binned Sportpesa as main sponsor!

£9m a year? I think that's about what we were getting when Adidas took over from Reebok. The club's recent turnover was £180-190m, so around about what we were making under the tumours. Basically, they are now pulling in the sort of numbers we were getting more than a decade ago, and unlike with us, almost 75p in every pound they make comes from the PL's television deal.

It’ll be like Demolition Man where there is a massive earthquake and, like Taco Bell with restaurants, Hummels will be the only sportswear manufacturer to survive.

It was obviously a fake from the off, I mean c’mon, where’s the Angry Birds advertisement?

Schalke clone?


Apparently Hitler was a Schalke fan, so I can see what their aiming for.

They reckon our Nike deal could be worth £70m per season.

Funny, I love that GIF. 
 

Alternatively, although there will be a lot of un-employed & furloughed, there will also be a lot of people who won’t be spending anywhere near as much money in lockdown as they used to do and will have a significant surplus come the new shirt arrivals.

CatcherInTheRye is currently working on an argument to prove that  £70m is less than  £9m.

Ours is £30m base, the rest is in assumed sales. 
 

I can only imagine it’s using the same maths that shows we wouldn’t win the league this season.

We only get the 70 million if we win all our games by 3 or more goals and Mane and Salah have to start every game and can't be subbed off or it takes a chunk out of the money. Also Nike have insisted that all the squad wear nike boots so lots of the players with boot deals with other brands have asked their agents to find them other clubs.

That £70m is only if they sell over 100m shirts worldwide in the first 3 months, win the league next season (which we all know they never will) and crucially they have to sell more than us in Liverpool as well to get that money...Nike have identified the home city market as absolutely key and the RS will never sell more shirts here than us, so they are fucked.

 

They'll get about 10% tops of that 70m based on assumed sales and therefore be getting less than us and a lot less than Man Utd and Man City and even Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.....their deal is worth in real terms about the same as Sheffield United's.

Can Hummels really recover £9m a year from a sales base that consists largely of Connah’s Quay and Rhyl?
