Ha no. To be honest, never quite understood putting a players name on the back of the shirt. Esp before the end of the transfer window.

They've been removed from the listings page but the product pages are still available via the URL. Unless they've got some kind of buy-back agreement with Puma they'll need to get rid of them somehow, and the fact that they've not deleted the product pages yet suggests they might be back on sale at a later date...


Asked in the megastore today if they had any of the old shirts and was told they're not on sale anymore. Hoping they will come back on sale once the 'buzz' of the new shirts has died down.

Surely Puma wouldn't buy left overs back?


Has the club every sold off old shirts cheap at the same time as new ones? It seems highly unlikely to me they would do so as it would cannibalise new shirt sales.


Would it really? I suspect that there are two/three different types of buyer: Those who would buy the new shirt at virtually any price regardless. Those who won't fork out ridiculous amounts just to have the latest shirt and wait to buy the old shirts at a good discount. Those who do both.

I doubt there are many who think 'I'll buy the new shirt. Actually the old ones are a really good price now, I'll skip the new shirt and make do with the old one'.

If they are just throwing away the old shirts, I suspect they are throwing away money. However, if the go to charity and the club accept a 'loss' then fair play to them.

There is probably a percentage of people that go into the club shop and think about buying a top but are put off by the price. A percentage of them will buy something cheaper (like a training top) and if you give them more options that increases the percentage.

Increases the percentage of people who buy something instead of nothing - or increases the percentage of people who buy a training top instead of a shirt?

Swings and roundabouts really.

Sorry, my grammar was a bit crap there.

I honestly think it would reduce the sale of new tops.

I fall squarely into the second group - I walked into the megastore last week, looked at the new shirts, asked if they had any of lasts years on sale and walked out buying nothing when they said they didn't.
I'm not splashing out £66 for a sports shirt.

My sons junior team used to have Macron kits. They are very flexible with designs, pretty much can do whatever you want with them. Bit different to the paint by numbers kits you get from Nike or Adidas.
