  1. Nice Exeter City one...……..Form a queue!
  2. Again, not advertising...……..but these are classy for,...……... let's call them tribute shirts! ………...still fugly design though!
  3. Dead right...…….that's why the ones in the store don't have umbro on......I bought an umbro Iron on and an Asda six months ago waiting for larger sizes to come back in...……….still waiting...…..might be a very long wait!
  4. Compare the Sanderson era shirts to todays sizes...……...whats going on there then? lol...……..are people really all shrinking?
  5. Not everyone's cup of tea, retro shirts but the older we get, the better the old kits look...……..and oh how we wish we could fit into some of the stuff from our earlier days.... but as you know, they all seem to mysteriously shrink in storage......funny that! Fair to say there's a big demand for retro shirts amongst certain fans. Toffs Bukta badged retro shirts whiz all over the unbadged ones sold by the club at one point, often wondered why Toffs can and Wednesday can't/won't with that particular kit???? Anyhow, I believe our club made a bit of a song and dance about appointing a new person into merchandising a while ago, finger on the pulse etc,...….. This is the club that has in house kit manufacturing (from...….Australia!!!!!) that threw sizing out of the window and just went with Asian sizes, or close to them and last season didn't have any larger sized shirts in for 9 months...…….so thank god they appointed someone...…..or did they?...…….no stocks of retro shirts for six months plus (I know these aren't made by elev8) but why isn't stock available?......and nobody at S6 gives a rats bottom. Cue an enterprising guy...….from Australia again, not advertising for him because the club has threatened him with legal action over his oh so nice, but oh so knock off items, making and selling his own very accurate shirts with embroidered logos and badges, he also does the Blunts, the Dingles and Toytown, so a Yorkshire lad in exile I reckon. So good on him I say, he's tapping into a demand that doesn't exist according to the club if you look at what they are offering in the megabore…..unless you knock a few up yourself to sell to like minded fans...……………..then you are threatening legal action...…...So offer the fans some official ones!!!!!!!!!!!! This guy's knock offs are so good people are buying them, sticking them on ebay and fans are being duped into bidding on them thinking they are original. there's one on there at the minute at the £100 quid mark...…...and bidding hasn't finished...…….and it's the silver grey with purple stripe Finlux monster that was as popular as a turd in a swimming pool when it came out but is mysteriously worshipped by some these days...... I want an Asda cup final shirt, got the original, minus Asda, of course because they were just one day glory hunter sponsors, but it's old, and I'd like a new one but not for two and three hundred quid, the "collectors" can pay that if they like...………... So Mr or Miss merchandise guru for our team...…………….where are they?
  6. Here's one I "made" over a month ago now for less than £28...............What a farce!
  7. I got that fed up with waiting I did a "Blue Peter" and made my own!................Better collar, known brand......and £22 all in! Giz a job DC
  8. So..........are we borrowing Alfreton's away kit tonight?, or playing in last season's one?, ridiculous situation!
  9. I wouldn't think Chesterfield would play Evans in a meaningless pre season kick about against us. The potential for unnecessary nastiness and unwanted trouble is obvious................ If he does play just boo him every time he touches the ball..........Simples!!
  10. Absolutely bang on, agree with this 100%, really sad to see the lad go.
  11. The quality of the material, stitching etc is, to be fair, very good.........................However, those Thai boys and no doubt girls, and children unfortunately, do make very good "copies".............................England shirts for £12 anyone? have a look at 4footballshirts site. I've seen several of these close up, in the hand so as to speak, and the ONLY difference from £60 worth of Nike is that the side vent holes are missing on the 4footballshirts effort, likewise with the latest Barcelona shirts, you'd be pushed to tell the difference. The strange thing is though that the knock off boys tend to go for the mass market, Arsenal, Bayern, Barcelona, Man Utd etc...........so quite what happened with this "Wednesday shirt" is a bit of a puzzle, I've certainly not seen one before, and can't see that there will be many of them about! As a finishing touch I'm thinking about getting it printed up with Premier league sleeve badges and LeFONDRE on the back That would cause a few double takes and bewilderment in my local!!!!
  12. Like this? I bought this the other day off Fleabay, God knows what it actually is, or came from! but it's bloody unusual and a rarity
  13. Dalian Atkinson is the fastest I've ever seen play for us........by a country mile
  14. Free stickers with the programme................................the two I remember are "It's Wednesday every day of the week" and one with, erm,.......Jimmy Savile on it saying "Owls about that!"...................................now there's a collectors item!
