I know this has been said many times before but I thought we were finally getting organized on our commercial sales side of things. I understand, beginning of the season, a lot of shopping is done now with the excitement of the new season.

But how do you NOT plan for the spike in shopping? I have been on the team shopping site armed with a credit card burning holes in my wallet ready to buy a whole bunch of stuff. Its laugh out loud embarrasing...

You cannot find pretty much anything New Season or Retro for jerseys in the most common sizes. Am guessing the average dude buys medium and mostly large size for an adult? Seriously, the whole place is out of stock with stuff.

We moan about lagging behind the mancs and madrid/barca in revenues generated from commercial sales? Look no further than the lack of adequte planning to account for increase in interest in purchasing the hottest items. Why you wouldn't just overstock like crazy, I have no idea - even if you don't sell everything right now, its not like people stop shopping in August. Its a right put off and makes even the most willing shopper lose interest in coming back later to buy stuff when the shop finally figures it out restocks the shelves.

Embarrasing. A club of this magnitude shouldn't be allowing this to happen. I am a firm believer in letting the club reap the benefits of my money, not going to middlemen who re-sell stuff. But then the club leaves with little choice.

Sort it out already, Ian.

You have to be aware Snipes that here in the UK our sizes are different. Our XL is the equivalent to an S in America. I imagine we only have so many XXXL shirts in stock.

Maybe you should just get a tarpaulin, cut a hole in it for your head and paint it red.

Nice, while I will admit most Americans have become beluga whales, the English are honestly just as fat, or pretty close to it.
It did make me laugh though.

mmmmmmm butter. and now that I think of it, have you had good American food? I'm sorry but whenever I've been over there (England) the food is just awful. ;) We can get a hundred different kinds of food just about anywhere, and I'm not talking fast food, I don't eat that crap, but quality stuff.

Which is why a lot of you are the size of a small country! Only place I have ever been where they had a burger bar half way round the supermarket in case you get a tad peckish. The turnstiles were wide enough to get a family of 4 through! :eek: :D

In all honesty, I never participated in the thread before but I remember how I laughed so much my sides hurt. And then I forgot about it for a while and was wondering what it was I wanted to say about DDG until this popped up again. The fact it took him him a minute to say what he did after the op is quite outrageous- it's as if he had been lying in wait for exactly that moment for exactly that kind of op! hilarious **** that:D
