Adidas ditching The Toon

I've heard a few rumours over the last few days that adidas will ditch their 14 year association with the club at the end of next season, with PUMA being mooted as our new kit sponsor. Apparently the kraut firm, are disappointed merchandise sales aren't as strong as they once were, along with the utter circus on and off the pitch for a long time, they no longer wish to be associated with us, and PUMA will take over for 2010/2011.

Adidas have only really done us one class shirt in the last 14 years, which was the granda collar one. The Asics one was nice as well, and the UMBRO one in my avatar. The thing with adidas, look at their portfolio of teams, they're all bluechip clients, Real Madrid, Ajax, AC Milan, Liverpool, Chelsea, FC Bayern..erm Newcastle, and it's symbolic of our demise that they're ending the relationship. I bet if you look down the last 20 winners of the European Cup more than half would've done it in an adidas shirt.

Indeed, they both have their headquarters in the same town.

No wonder as their founders were brothers...

One of the major shareholders (some old bat) lives quite near me. :nufc:

Aye they have produced some pretty wank strips. Particularly the away ones. It's a long time since I've bought a top but that's probably not just because they have been shite.

Aye remember that blue and orange one we had at Leeds that time?

Coincidentally, I was thinking the other day how long we had left on the adidas and NR deals.

 

I would've thought its nailed on that we'll be wearing one of ashleys chav brands next season, Lonsdale, Donnay etc., probably with Sports Direct as the shirt sponsor. Classy.
