    Which is fair enough, but don't Leicester have a contract directly with Puma, where we are the customer of a third party that supplies Puma's products, just like Just Sport did with Nike?

    Again, that's a genuine question as I don't know the answer...

    Cheers!

    I know Arsenal for example are signed with Puma direct, and as such get paid for wearing their gear. I should imaging Leicester(more so after last year) will be an a similar deal, but with lower terms.

    I'm not the owner, you obviously think having more Wednesday supporters in ground then Barnsley supporters is better for the club financially so lets just let them have all ground.

    No - I think a business losing money hand over fist grabbing every penny they can is a good thing.

    I'm replying here at the end which isn't ideal but I didn't want to reply as I went along as I wanted to read all reponses first and now I can't be bothered to go back through 8 pages to find the post I want to reply to.

    @bossman: in regards the 'have you been to a meeting/arranged to have a chat with the powers that be': I have put forward the same complaint to our SLO around 10 times over the last 8 months, who I can only presume has passed this same complaint on 10 times to the management.* If this issue has been brought to the management's attention 10 times by a respected person in a role created by management to garner our thoughts, then me repeating it for the 11th time at a meeting isn't going to make the blindest bit of difference is it? What is especially confusing in this case is that solutions have been promised and yet 8 months later have not been forthcoming. If the answer had been that they didn't consider my issue to be an issue at all, then fair enough (apart from the fact that it is an H&S issue) but they have agreed to an action to rectify it and have yet failed to carry it out. This then means that I have to dilute the next set of feedback with the exact same issue, wasting everyone's time and getting frustrated at the level of incompetence being shown. The same thing with shirts, it has been a question at many a fan meeting but nothing has changed. Why would it make a difference if it was me who asked the question rather than someone else? We all just get the same answer of excuses and empty promises and then the exact same thing happens once again.

    *if they haven't then that is of course another issue but I have no reason to believe that the SLO cannot be trusted to pass on our thoughts so I'm going to go on the basis that they have.



    @fizzytyke I think it was. Your solution to SuperTyke of 'stop attending and support another team' if you are annoyed at not being able to buy a shirt isn't really a great solution to the problem that the club has lost money on a sale. If, as according to you, everyone who was annoyed at not being able to buy a shirt should go and support a team where they could buy one, then not only would the club lose £40 odd pound on the cost of the shirt but also £300 odd quid on the cost of a ST too. That's the strangest logic I've ever heard.

    Have you ever considered the marginal costing of a few more shirts

    With regards your first point. I never mentioned whether Supertyke had been to a meeting or not. I did say that had he tried arranging a meeting. That wasn't me having a go. I was genuinely interested to see if he could get his grievances resolved
    Secondly I didn't know you'd made the same complaint 10 times so asking me if making it an 11th time would help your problem then sorry I can't answer that.

    We all know half of west stand is unsafe due to being old and not passing health and safety laws, also the section next to east stand is also now closed due to idiots causing trouble which has cost the club money in fines and now extra policing..

    5,200 for Wednesday supporters is still a decent away following allocation.
