That's a key point, an annual event yet some always deflect it away from the club.

I mentioned previously every pre season is an important time but this season was even more so after the last 16 months as many will be wondering if it's worth the bother after getting out of the habit. 

 

But SMISA have now bought 51% of shares. Hopefully this won't be a problem next season, as @div says.

Hopefully? 

I'd be expecting more than hope. 

Ach, this is a new venture. One can only hope until there's evidence of the new owners being efficient.

I'm a member of SMISA, btw, so does that make me an owner! 😎

At today's game when waiting for people to come into the ground and the game to start, I saw a man and a teenager walking behind the goals. The boy had on the new strip(new ironed on sponsor) and wondered to myself, where the f**k did he get that from if not on sale yet? My 7 year old son in the toilet at half time was asking if he could get the new strips today. I had to tell him f**k know how that boy had it. Just seemed weird to see it on someone that wasn't a player as we were told it will be like mid august to go on sale.

We also noticed a guy at top of West stand with the new shirt on. Thought that was weird. The only thing we could think was one of the players had given him it.

I had a look at our website to check the cost of potentially sponsoring a player shirt... 

Good to see yet another failing of our commercial operation failing. Player list completely out of date and lots of empty slots  🙄

Should be selling them at reduced prices given the length of time it's taken to get things going.

Could use the money saved to place a bet on how quickly the new sponsor logo ironed over old sponsor falls off !

We spent over £300 at the Leeds United shop the other week kits look great and the season hasn’t started yet

Worrying thought

Interesting though that on kids kits it’s different sponsor and you can buy strips without sponsor on.

Getting strips 7 games in to a season however from Saints ?

Your last point is fair - we are near end of August now and up here the good weather is almost gone, if I bought my son a strip he’s not really going to be able to show it off.

Now if the strips were available say 6 weeks ago he would have got all the summer holidays out of it.

Appreciate (whilst I don’t know the detail) that Skyview ‘moved the goalposts’ - no pun intended, which has had a fairly big impact, are/were Skyview in breach of an existing contract or was the contract up for renewal and we got caught out (commercially)? Where I am going with this is - if it’s the former - could we go after Skyview legally for breach of contract and collateral damage (the strip sales)?

Probably not going to get him his strip now which is a shame because the home one is a cracker.

New Strips should be released for sale every Spring..

I get where your coming from clubs and kit makers wont/cant do that incase a club is changing manufacturer. However i reckon they should be on sale as soon as the season is finished to maximise revenue streams for the “good weather” and holidays.
