Glorified bookies again ..
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

Well that's very disappointing. I was hoping we'd move away from gambling sponsors, especially after what happened with Jordan Stevens. :tdown:

Unfortunately only gambling companies have that kind of money. Unless there's a blanket ban on them in football, every team will be plastering gambling companies over the place.

Look out for introductory offers on SBOBET website soon - might be that they give away shirts. Don't sign up yet until they have offers.

Not just another betting company, but could also be a tax exiled one, which really adds a different level of bad taste. I know we need the money but it’s contrary to the culture of the club at the moment and that’s a pity.

Adidas’ record has been chequered, and ugly at times, but it has been much better in recent times as they have cleaned up their labour record.

The issue with purchasing clothes is that it is next to impossible to buy anything from a high street shop that isn’t connected to a sweatshop somewhere. It’s what has happened to the world clothes industry.

Underwhelmed and disappointing are the two words that spring to mind but Rads is a businessman, I’m sure it will be a good move financially for the club. I guess it could be worse, we could have had Primark splashed over the front

I’m just glad we’ve got a sponsor and a very good deal rumoured to be around the £15M per annum and if Primark were to offer more then I’d take that offer, we’ve got to realise, sadly it’s all about money in the PL and without it you struggle. The so called big 6 earn 2-3 times this from their primary sponsors and our deal, again rumoured puts us high up the list above other well established PL clubs
