It's all about what we as a club lack at every level. It's about marketing and commercialism. It's March, 6/7 weeks left, who's still buying shirts? Nobody! So make people buy them, cheap enough not to care, get rid of the stock and build excitement for the new kit/season. The money on kits is made in the first few weeks when the big sales pay for the stock and generate profit. The rest of the sales through the season are pure profit. What do we do as a club? Sit on unwanted stock, at sky high price with zero hope of ever selling any...frankly amateurish business decorum, and zero commercial common sense.

 

Reality is, give people what they want at the right price and they will buy. Nice shiny new kit pre season at high price, everybody wants one, 2 months of the season to go, make the shirts cheap as chips and people will realise they want one. You can't buy players and fund a club with polyester hanging up in the shop, but you can with cash.

I still believe that putting a shirt on pre-order once announced is dynamite in terms of getting record sales sold

It's done in every other industry that I can think of


Get em on PRE-ORDER!!!

Yet another stick to beat the club with.


Mate - if you can't handle debate stick to the official site


The Leicester kit thing is a great idea, we could do it, we should do it

Nothing wrong with pointing it out and discussing it whatsoever


Unless you're advocating continuing to sell the shirts to our fans at £59?

When saying 'Unless you're advocating continuing to sell shirts to our fans at £59'..........this suggests folks are buying, frankly I'd be staggered if we've sold 50 shirts since the turn of the year.

To be fair it's March, we are terrible at the minute, the shirts we have left aren't gunna sell at £59 are they. Reduce them to a tenner and they will fly out.

Agreed


That's why saying this post is bashing the club is incorrect


It's constructive criticism and offering ideas to improve and win

To be fair it's constructively bashing them, and couldn't be anymore deserved. If the shirts aren't slashed damn soon, not a lesson has been learnt from the racks of pin stripe beauties still for sale in the week before Xmas.

Did they make any announcement on the kit on Saturday as suggested on Friday evening?

 


No but I'm not surprised


I'd have not announced it on a downer after the result we got

Spot on mate . Its common sense . You have stock left you need to shift before the new stock arrives in a few weeks. What do you do ? you have a sale with massive discounts to tempt people to take it off your hands so you arnt left with it gathering dust in the stockroom. 

 

Not wednesday , we persist in trying to flog it at full price . 

 

You couldnt make it up.

Gotta say I'm very surprised they're not down to £10 which MIGHT make that shirt buyable to those who can ignore the horrific design BUT it's an attempt to make the right moves forward I guess.

Can't see em shifting many at all at £30

Agree it's a step in the right direction but not far enough

£10 would be about right.

Our shirts are way too expensive. Can't justify spending anywhere like that on a football shirt. 

 

But yeah, Leicester have Premier League TV money, Champions League money from the other season as well. Different situations entirely.
