Can't imagine they're in anything other than an enormous financial hole (their Trustpilot at the moment is quite the thing), so can only assume the sponsorship was paid up front before this all started.
On a similar note, excuse me if its been gone over but I haven't noticed it....

Has the sponsorship with Axis been terminated fully? or will they continue as sponsors but obviously without the UK part of the company which has folded but just the Aussie part of the company still sponsoring us?

Unless you'd washed the shirt previously, anyway.


...now that was a rubbish shirt and disgraceful behaviour by Town fans for voting for it.

Ukraine wore it better.

Don't particularly like the kit but going to buy it this season anyway and I'd urge everyone to do likewise if they can. The club's cashflow will be dire at the moment.

Id rather not give anymore of my hard earned cash to the club under the current ownership. Hopefully a cash flow problem will leave Power no choice but to finally sell up.

As and when Power moves on, I'm sure you'll find another excuse.

We literally just got promoted after significant investment in January, as much as there are things to criticise Power for, stagnating is really pushing it.

Personally think the kit is boring, looks to me like no thought has gone into it - the purple kit last season showed what good a decent kit can do to generate some interest.

If you want to help the club with cashflow, shirts are not the way to do it, they really don't make a huge amount of money from shirt sales with the deal they are in with Puma, as it the case with most clubs unless you are a top Premier league side..  If you want to help out with cashflow then ST's/tickets/hospitality/sponsorship is the way to go..

Better start work on your next excuse for not attending when he eventually does leave. Hoping for a cash flow problem that could risk the future of the club is absolutely pathetic!

Whilst, Im not sure I agree with the comment myself. One could argue that having been in the bottom 2 tiers for 20 years is quite stagnant.

I mean in context in that 20 years the club has been through so many different regimes, so weve had false starts, short term upward trajectory and come down with a crash several times.

On the other hand, look at how many clubs have gone past us in the bottom two divisions to at least get to the Championship. Yeovil, Colchester, Southend, Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Swansea, Brighton, Wigan - probably Oxford too!!

Naturally, youve seen plenty go back the other way - including some of the ones mentioned above!!

I think it depends how long term you want to look at the football club. Certainly based purely on league position we are no better off now than we were 20 years ago.

Your view on whether the club has stagnated must depend on whether you consider that it should be in the championship.  Realistically, it appears that the club has just found its place in the pyramid. 

As I understand it, the second Di Canio season was ultimately unsustainable and reaching the championship will depend on an owner who is willing to wear a loss position each season. 

A number of clubs seem to have an owner who, for whatever reason, is willing to operate a club on that basis.  Presumably, STFC has not been able to attract anyone who is willing to splash the cash (and actually has the money to do so).

I had understood that LP has sought to run the club on the basis that it is 'sustainable'.  However, the byproduct of that appears to be that for a club of STFC's size/resources, championship football is likely to be difficult to achieve.

If the fallout from COVID-19 is as forecast, let's hope STFC are still fulfilling EFL fixtures next season.

I don't think it's hyperbolic to say that Town have largely ballsed up the 21st century...

Without looking at any other club, I dare say that the majority of EFL clubs have to varying degrees  Smiley

Stagnated / found out natural level are one and the same, really.


I get the whole natural level thing, I do - but surely you should always be trying to better yourself and move forward, no matter how difficult / unrealistic that is
