Bloody hell Joe, it wasn’t meant to be taken that seriously!

Like you said, we have no idea who it is, just like I didn’t when I mentioned Macron as a joke. Unless you have some insider knowledge and I’ve made a lucky, or should I say unlucky, guess?

I bought about 20 pairs of cheap footy socks on ebay , worked out about £2 a pair....the brand name written in the sock was " Givova" which I thought was a right piss take....and then I saw the Malta national team wearing them....😄

This lighter shade of blue is ok the odd year in ten, fifteen or twenty. For the greater part of our history, we have played in royal blue. That’s the colour it needs to be.

Think Sharpe should go and try to find out who from Rovers went running to Sky Sports before the Middlesbrough match in January and told them we had arranged for a £2 million pitch replacement. A

So now that the season has been done and dusted for 3 months or so.

Who do we think is the new kit supplier?

Macron Sportswear will be replacing Umbro.

Macron isn't bad IMO. Quite like some of the stuff they've done - Bristol Rovers would be a good one to look at given our design and colours.

Budget brand, dreadful quality. Sunday league standard.

Macron have been moving into the market more and more in recent years. Also in the Championship they sort Reading, Forest, Stoke and Millwall - I can't comment on the quality or fit but the designs I think are ok - for example the Millwall halved away shirt looked ok.

Looking around the Championship most clubs are made by one of a few companies:
 

Umbro - us, Luton, Brentford, Bournemouth, Derby, Huddersfield

Adidas - Birmingham, Cardiff

Hummel - Bristol City, Middlesbrough, Coventry

Errea - Norwich, QPR

Puma - Barnsley, Rotherham

Macron - Reading, Forest, Millwall, Stoke

Then Swansea (Joma), Watford (Kelme), Wycombe (O'Neills), Preston (Nike) and Sheff Wed (Elev8) are alone with theirs.

Ignoring the minor ones at the bottom I'd sooner give Macron a try and see what they come up with than stay with Umbro or go with Adidas or Errea. Puma probably similar.

Think Hummel would be the best option, Under Armour would be great but seems they don't go for Championship clubs.

It's strange isn't it, in UK Under Armour is seen as quality but yet in The States, it's viewed as 'The Netto' of Sportswear!

Worth noting that Macron merchandise on Forest's club shop is much, much cheaper than ours.

For example, a thick winter bench jacket for them is currently £30. We don't even stock them but when we did they were up for £100. Tracksuit tops are £18 for adults, at the Rovers shop they are still charging £30 (that's after a £20 reduction) from an initial £50.

The new kit sponsor is Macron 100%, I know someone (not very well mind, but I know him) works at the club, it is 100% macron.

Additionally the owners have sanctioned £45k to be spent on the pitch, and that is it, they don't want to spend anymore, so expect a pretty sub-standard pitch.

No, I am not claiming to be an ITK, they are just 2 things I know to be correct in regards to the club.

Macron. A very underwhelming choice. Suits the current setup perfectly, though. Cheap, no interest in quality.

As for the pitch, it looks like Waggott gave us all just another sound bite. "The new stitch pitch is going to cost £2m. I need to find that from somewhere". Yeah, right. It was always likely to be a patch up job.

Cheers for the info, Wovers.

£45,000!!! There are 4th and 5th division clubs spend more than that on their pitch and that's ignoring the problems we had this season due to a lack of investment in previous years.

Good job we have model owners who "never refuse a cheque". Also a good job we have a CEO that told us a £2 million replacement was being sorted. He can't possibly have lied, can he?

I've absolutely no doubt your information is genuine and correct. .The £45k figure tallies with what i have heard in previous years and is the reason the pitch ended up in the state is did this winter.

A couple of photos of a grass-less pitch and a machine or two on the surface released on social media in the summer will still do the trick even at £45k.

’More investment from the owners 👏’, ‘fair play to Venky’s’, ‘err Bolton’.

So Waggott claimed a new Ewood surface would cost £2 million.

Actually the price for a Desso pitch would be significantly less than that, but still over £1 million.

Venkys are permitting £45,000.

And we were supposed to believe this lot were going to sell Brockhall, reinvest the proceeds to a state of the art facility AND cough up extra?

Con men the lot of em.

To add credence to your information I heard similar about it although the figure I was told was £30k. I'm not splitting hairs but merely supporting your point that they are scrimping once again on an important area of the football side of the club despite what Waggott said in February.

I've got this season's Hibs shirt (they donated sponsorship to the NHS) and it's ok. Sizing wise they recommended getting a size or 2 up, think I went 2 and it is more than ample, should have gone 1.

Looked through brochure clinging to to the hope of finding any positives. Horrendous, will spend my money elsewhere. 

Have a lot of experience  with Macron over the years......its cheap but functional in a Sunday league kid of way.

Sizes are always iffy and the style is always tight and clingy.....One for the dad bods 💪

That's not good news to say the least! 

I was hoping @Wovers post was tongue in cheek as a bit of a dig at comments made by others about Mowbray getting the boot the other week.

There was never ever going to be a stitch pitch. Hopefully not one single person ever believed it.

Sharpe needs to ask about it and publish their excuses. I'm going for "on hold" until we understand the covid rules and the ST sales forecast. (guilt trip fans routine).

No new pitch.

Transfer Embargo.

Mowbray staying.

Boohoo.com new kits.

Regressive journey.

A lesson for anyone who listens to those at the club - don't - they couldn't lie straight in bed.

They'll tell people anything to keep them quiet, promises of x, y and z at a future date, it won't materialise.

Especially important lesson in view of the training ground con.
