Shirts On Sale Now

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, genuine question, I was thinking about getting the new shirt for the first time years, looked a the back and thinking that looks a bit plain how much for Forestieri 45 on the back... I was just about to click checkout and then I thought to myself I am going to look a right c**k all season long if he leaves before the end of the transfer window. Should I just get one blank one for now, wait and see, or go with Bannan?

Only time I had anything on the back was when Emerson Thome played for us. The people in the shop told me that he’d have Emerson on the back of his own shirt. Quite why he ever would I don’t know (though it was around the time that the Brazilian Emerson played for Boro) but I was young and gullible a fell hook, line and sinker for their silky sales patter.

 

Imagine my horror when he turned up wearing “Thome” on the first day of the season and that I’d have a full season with the wrong name on my back. Never again.

Last time I had a name on the back was probably 8 Carbone in the late 90s as a kid. flipping' heartbroken when he left. So probably a good idea not to repeat history. Thome didn't he play like one season and end up at Chelsea?

61 appearances according to Wikipedia then sold to Chelsea for £2.7m. He had a great song to the tune of Little Drummer Boy.

Reminds me of a random video of a man utd midnight kit launch and they asked the kid who he was going to have on his Shirt and before he could reply his dad said he's havin' Jones. I can picture it now.... "...How much?" Some poor kid is going to get Fox, Ha.

How does that work?

 

I know for a fact we arent getting the £175k a season up front from Sondico anymore for the privilege of selling the shirts - and I'd like to bet that our margin isn't much different. And certainly not sufficient to justify charging the fans £15 a shirt more

 

 

Ask the Chairman?

 

My answer is Wednesday would get 100% of the profit, not a fraction of it which would be the case with a 3rd party manufacturer like Sondico, Puma, and whoever.

 

For example (figures made up), Sondico shirts were £15 to manufacture, sold to the club at £30, Wednesday sell them at £40. Sondico make £15/shirt, Wednesday make £10/shirt. Factor in the contract Sondico “won” to be our manufacturer.

 

Elev8 shirts are £15 to manufacture, the company appears to be owned by our Chairman (or so I believe), so he/Wednesday get said shirts for £15/shirt and sell them for £60/shirt.

 

I’ve no idea how many shirts we shift, but let’s say 25,000. So, under Sondico we’d make £15 x 25,000, plus the £150k contract = £525k for Wednesday. Under Elev8 we’d make £1.125m for Wednesday. That’s all assuming Mr Chansiri doesn’t pay himself a contract fee like Sondico paid us.

 

So, assuming I’ve all the facts right, a minimum of £600k/season extra profit is probably the reason why.

I said the figures are made up, it’s the play under Sondico and Elev8 that’s the important issue - and the figures there don’t matter, the examples show why we are doing the kits in-house and not with a third party; cos it increases revenue like I said.

By facts, I mean that Mr Chansiri owns our kit suppliers, that Sondico did pay us a contract fee to be our kit manufacturers, and that both Elev8 and Sondico manufacture shirts for around the same price.

 

I thought that was pretty obvious given I said the figures were made up to give the examples, which were obviously the important part of the story.

 

If someone wishes to give me the actual figures, I’ll re-post - not that it’ll make a jot of difference to the point! lol

They’ve been reduced to £25 - I think, can’t remember the price, but that’s not important unless you’re @Hillsborough Mole or @bobness, just the fact they are reduced is the important part! lol

If I have my facts correct, DC has actually raised the price on those to £65*

*this figure is made up

It’s not the figure that’s important, it’s whether the shirts have been reduced that’s the important thing.

 

The answer is yes they have. By how much is completely and utterly irrelevant to the question! lol
