Everyone knows the REAL objection is solely that these companies are cheap and nasty. Like getting the pound shop on your shirt.

 

Nothing wrong with that line of thinking either in my opinion.

 

What will the next potential sponsor think if his company/brand is associated with tat? When Wonga fuck off maybe another sponsor will think twice and we'll replace like for like, not that most football clubs will give a fuck I suppose but it might just cost them in the long run.

Contrary to what your inferring, pound shops have actually being seen as a positive force on the high street in assisting people through this recession. 76% of shoppers reveal they provide a convenient, value and green shopping opportunity in inner cities which are increasingly clogged with traffic bound for retail parks and hypermarkets.

I wasn't inferring anything young man :) it is a fact that there is a stigma attached to pound shops. I am well aware they are absolutely one of the greatest economic success stories since the financial crash (along with Sports Direct) that doesn't improve their image amongst football fans though, that it's not a brand worthy of their teams shirt. The perception is that they are cheap.

 

Pound shops themselves have come in for heavy criticism over the ethics of what they do though. Dispatches reported on how many of their products are actually more expensive than at other retailers. People just assume one pound is a good price for many goods they could get cheaper elsewhere. They sell smaller measures than other supermarkets, so a like for like comparison is not as simple as people assume. Nasty.

They may be good at what they do, that doesn't mean people want to see them on football shirts. Maggots are really good at getting rid of dead flesh.

Persoanlly I cant stand Wonga and all the other companies that are dodgy. However, Northern Rock where hardly better being bailed out with our tax money. They rely on sales in the form of lans and mortages with mass interest so only slightly better. Same with Virgin Money.

 

I support the club, not the sponsor on the fucking front. Part of the games these days is to get a sponsor that pays the most. Todays football need large cash sums, its they way of the football world these days I'm afraid.
