Money......


We had a strip few years back that was made by Adidas. Without the logo and sponsor it was like £15/£20. With them the shirt was worth £40
I'd doubt that they will get £75 million a year from the merchandise tbh.
maybe not but then Dunfermline don't really qualify for Europe or generally win lots of trophies though do they. Plus Scotland isn't the biggest most followed league. I don't mean any offence @jordie was just stating it as a fact.
I meant I don't think they'll get 75 million from Man U :p

I know there is a large global fan base for United but not everyone buys merchandise every season - I still have our old kit from 2010.
that depends on how quickly Man U turn things around after last season. Being involved in Europe don't forget does pay out a heck of a lot of money. That partly why Spurs want to build a new stadium too to take advantage of that if we can. We're not saying we'll make it into Europe every year but it certainly helps your financial situation if you use it wisely. I think LVG will turn things around it's just a matter of how soon.

I'd be pleased if it took six or seven years really. No endless gloating last season is something I can get used to.

Man United get Adidas from next season for 10 years. 

AWESOME!
We have Adidas kits and the home one looks crap.
The home Ipswich Adidas kit is damn sexy IMO.

I don't know what the qualifications are for this, but apparently the 03 Arena is the best value for money ground in the PL with Stamford Bridge the worst.

Found this on twitter for the two Newcastle fans that lost their lives on MH17.

A Sunderland fan also set up a tribute fund which is now over £5000.

So, erm, the match... well, it was wet, we won 5-1, I saw @onetwothree‌'s favourite kit in action, got Steven Fletcher's autograph and a thumbs up off Mannone, :)

good preseason game between us and Seattle finished 3-3 more work to do at the back but an entertaining game.

I read that a prerequisite for the Golden Ball was that you have to had played in the final. So basically, to justify their obviously stupid decision, they quietly changed the rule. And people say FIFA isn't corrupt.

To be fair, standing next to a dark skinned Italian isn't going to help :p

He doesn't look it on the picture, but I got a shock when I saw him at how dark he is.
