  1. Nice thread. I like how the rather serious subject matter has revealed here how, actually, most of us quietly like the man. Football would be a lot less interesting without characters like Warnock. Hope he makes a speedy recovery.
  2. I can’t get excited about it. The recruitment has been decent, on paper at least. But the abject recruitment process that resulted in the appointment of Holden coupled with the soulless prospect of more matches in empty stadiums has left me feeling completely detached from football. Plus, as a member rather than STH, there would appear to be little prospect of me attending any games this season, and I maintain that if I can’t be there to see it, I’d rather we weren’t promoted anyway. The experience matters as much to me as the achievement and one is nothing without the other.
  3. See also: “I bet you’re fun at parties”. My suspicion is anyone who says this probably isn’t particularly entertaining company at social occasions.
  4. That’s pretty much my thoughts. Someone on twitter described it as our best kit ever! I don’t get the love for it....it’s fine but ordinary.
  5. Very positive reaction to the kit on twitter but am I the only one who feels a bit “meh” about it? It just looks pretty unremarkable to me. And not dissimilar to 15/16.
  6. That kit is a perfect metaphor for 2020.......I was looking forward to it, but it wasn’t worth the wait, it’s boring with not much going on and lots of people won’t be able to afford it.
  7. This must be the least exciting fixture reveal ever. Just feel so detached from it all now.
  8. If opposition strikers want to use our goalkeepers as a target that’s fine by me.
  9. I can’t decide if I Iove them or hate them. Possibly both.
  10. This is such a crap argument against poor value. Fine, I won’t buy it, but then I don’t have a product that I would quite like to own and should be able to afford. Point is there are people out there who should be able to afford to buy their team’s football shirt that won’t be able to. Or parents who won’t be able to buy it for their kids.
  11. You never did explain to us how you knew that Holden definitely wasn’t getting the job.
  12. Something being “optional” doesn’t excuse overpricing. Of course you don’t have to buy it. But does that mean we shouldn’t expect something to be of reasonable value? Particularly when there is a more of an emotional/loyal affinity between the seller and the buyer than there is for ordinary retail, where the buyer can just go elsewhere. It just means that people who might like to purchase the item can’t or won’t do so.
  13. I’m well aware shirts aren’t a big part of funding players so there’s no need to patronise me. I’m talking about the principle. And if they are such a negligible part of the overall financial picture, then why not price them more reasonably, perhaps rebuild a little goodwill with supporters after the manager fiasco, and recognise the current economic climate we all find ourselves in? I’m not surprised by football as a business but that doesn’t mean I don’t lament it. And it doesn’t mean as supporters we should just accept it. Also the regular price increases you rightly identify are
  14. Producing our own kits was supposed to bring about cost savings for the club. Yet we didn’t see any of those savings passed on to fans, who were charged the same (or more) as they were when we had Puma/Adidas. Now they revert back to a supplier and the price goes up again. At a time of appalling economic crisis. Sorry, don’t agree with it, and I don’t understand why supporters seem so content to be fleeced. It’s £50 for a polyester T-shirt. You can’t tell me they can’t all make money by charging less - and they might even sell more and end up with the same profit. Once again we’re in
