Good. Perhaps now you'll stop bumping this thread 8 times a day if you're not planning on buying them.

I await your three replies to this post with baited breath.

A short little 2 minute chat on the radio, wasn't much said.

Edit: at one point it did sound as if a new deal had been agreed but then he started to talk about JD again.

Aye, basically the club are pushing JD for info/release date/etc, not much more they can do at the moment.Tony F stating again that the JD deal is excellent for the club.

Release date hopefully this week.

It might be great for the club but Shull is absolutely right it's a shite deal for the fans. we would be far better off if we had an "off the peg" adidas top. A bespoke strip is great half the time (12/13) and crap half the time (barcode).

A bespoke kit design should, at the very least, be great all the time. It opens up a ton of possibilities to get fans genuinely involved, and not in a 'Boaty McBoatface' fashion either, or for away fans to hi-jack the vote.

Just off the top of my head - get local schools involved in drawing competitions to have a bash at St Mirren strip designs. Even if the BoD could awake from their slumbers long enough to judge the entries - pick the best, oh, let's say 25 entries and display them in Paisley museum. Allow visitors to the museum to vote on the designs. No online voting, so no massive 'Boaty McBoatface' scenario. Gets Saints fans to go into town, see the kids designs, have a vote.

BoD narrow it down to a top 3. BoD get JD Sports to tidy their preferred design up and produce it. As I have said many times, JD could make anything I asked for. An amazing service and an amazing opportunity....

All thrown away in a fug of missed opportunity and downright apathy from within the walls of St Mirren Park.

Of course you are 100% correct and you have posted some great designs on here over the years but that still relies on a decent manufacturer so the jersey can fit over a childs head and the manufacturer's own logo is sewn on the right way up etc. etc. Although it's great to have a bespoke service, as you say we have missed the opportunity partly from the fug within St. Mirren park but also partly from JD's lack of quality, If you take Shull as an example - he has a child eager to have her teams kit, Shull knows he's going to have to pay a fair whack for it but he has no confidence that he'll get a product that fits, has no flaws in the material, has all the badges and logos the right way up or in the right places or even if it will last the whole season, I'll bet that if it wasn for himself and not his kid, he wouldn't bother.

Wouldn't it have been nice that on the day we announced the signing of a new player ahead of an exciting new season that for the press pic new player could have been decked out in the new kit ?

Positive press

Good reaction

Feel good factor ..... All opportunities missed?

Could have pulled in some kit sales - sold a few season tickets or even a handful more #buythebuds

Interestingly Tranmere signed new player today - they also have a Jd / Cabrini sports deal - their new player wasn't in next seasons kit either!!! However at least the article had the player posing in a Tranmere tshirt which said was one of a new range available in club shop !

Do we just miss a trick every time - or as a club are we just generally not arsed

Fitzpatrick did say it was on JD's end so it is no surprise that none of their clubs have new kits out.

Agree. Completely. Sorting out this sort of stuff should be one thing any new SMiSA/GLS ownership model should be able to display 'new-found enthusiasm and ideas' in... With ease.

Tap into the fanbase for kit design ideas / get local schools involved as I suggested a few days ago - crack the whip on JD Sports to get quality control issues fixed. Re-negotiate a deal to get kit on sale in our shop. Get an early release date to tap into summer weather / wearing it on holiday sales. Have a well-publicised launch date and get big strapping new signings to model it, not perma-tanned dolly burdz.

Any or all of this costs time and effort, and displays a willingness to actually give a fcuk about it - not big cash outlay we cannot afford.

Grrr. Rant over. For another day.

Season ticket purchased,supporters bus fully paid up,Buy the buds signed up,

New Saints top ?????????

Was really hoping the family would be sitting round the pool with our new Saints tops on in 3 weeks time but time will tell i suppose.

Maybe that will be my Xmas present sorted though.

I am looking forward to seeing the new top, yes it is frustrating waiting when other clubs have released their new strips, but we are getting over excited, it wasn't that long ago new strips would be issued every 2nd or even 3rd season and we had walk down to the Saints Shop in the piazza to view the new strips for the first time in the window display.

How can Morton have their fans vote on a number of options and strip selected following the initial fans revolt and we are still waiting.

Are talking above their recent attempt. One they obviously didn't vote for.

As soon as we see ours, we could organise a revolt. whistling.gif

In jd this morning talking to the supervisor/ manager and he was saying that the fans took the decision on the New strip and he was hoping it would be on sale end off month start of next month as he is only going off last year's release time.
