    England related thread

    You can’t blame the English for this. Turns out the ambulance vandal is a Scottish lass....😂 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5938431/Woman-football-yob-pictured-dancing-ambulance-service-car-celebrating-Englands-win-SCOTTISH.html

    England related thread

    Let’s settle this once and for all. I’m English, born in England of a Scottish mother and English father. Do England fans ‘hate’ Rangers? The big majority no, I think those that understand the politics love Rangers, England fans also love GB / UK and Rangers are the flag bearers for the union in British football. Ofcourse there is banter between our nations, and some people (idiots) take it seriously, but generally Rangers are the only Scottish club that England fans would have any love for. The small minority who would say they dislike Rangers are left wing types who probably hate Britain anyway and moan about our ‘colonial’ past, and these generally aren’t football types. ‘You’d be surprised how often you see a Rangers shirt down south.

    A British league?

    If hearts and Aberdeen made it to the prem in a British league I don’t see what the problem would be? Look at some of the teams ‘they’ have played in the Premier league in recent years. Swansea, Wigan, Reading...... If you earn your right to be there you deserve to be there. the biggest headache would be deciding how to incorporate Scottish teams into a British league. I don’t think current EPL teams would agree to any going straight into the prem. Can never see a European league happening. Champions league is a greatly respected competition as it is, and away travel for fans would be ridiculous. British league may be unlikely, but if there is no one to make constant noises about it, it will never happen.

    A British league?

    Will it happen at some point? As a ‘southerner’ of Great Britain and watcher of the EPL and SPL, I can honestly say having a British league would only benefit both the north and the south. Why football fans aren’t making noises to make this happen is something I don’t quite understand. I know Tony Blair was a supporter of the idea, but if the PM at that time couldn’t influence the decision then who can? So what exactly is the opposition to a British league? I’ve heard some fans comment on a way travel distances, but seriously GB isn’t that large, do they wonder how the French, Spanish and Italians manage it? ‘The big clubs in England naturally do not want more completion for their prize money and rights etc, so is it all about these clubs protecting what they have as they would have to agree to the idea? also the SNP rattling on about ‘independence’ every other week doesn’t exactly lend itself to a stable Britain either. i want it to happen but I just can’t see any movement for the idea.....

    VAR in the SPL?

    On this evidence VAR is pointless. The pauses are too long and lots of decisions aren’t even being looked at. Why they bought a new tech into the pinnacle of international football tournaments is beyon me. It needs years to mature into a usable system.

    Sponsors don’t get a portion of shirt sales. Manufacturers and the club get those goodies. Sponsors pay to have their logo associated with the club in the media etc.

    As people have a choice and can buy either, shirt sales would still be gaurenteed. Infact, shirt sales would increase.

    Who knows how big or small this minority is? Could be a ‘winner’ for the club

    They do indeed pay to have their logo on the shirt. We agree on something. They don’t make the shirt, they don’t receive income of shirt sales. They receive advertisement through media and association with the club, that’s what they pay their money for. ‘I’m in a minority that wants a shirt without a sponsor, my money is here waiting if the club want it. If not it’s a missed opportunity as I’m sure there are thousands who would buy one still. If I were not such a fat c*nt, I’d buy a kids top as they don’t have the sponsor on.

    I’m not sure you understand what the shirt sponsor is for. And I’m not sure why you think a deal would be brokered to give the shirt sponsor a portion of profit from the shirt manufacturer. The sponsor doesn’t receive unit sales from shirt sales.

    Fecking hell, it’s like talking to a brick wall 😂 It’s so simple I can’t see how it’s going over your head. People like me don’t put our money into buying a shirt, because I don’t like the sponsor on the front. Now, if there was an option of a shirt without a sponsor, that’s £65 of my money going into the club and purchasing a shirt that otherwise wouldn’t be bought. Again, the reason companies pay for shirt sponsors is so their brand gets to be seen on the t.v, in the news etc. It’s not so they can have their product associated with fat joe, stretching their brand name across his barrel. Without question the club would sell more shirts if the option was there to have no sponsor. And for those that want the sponsor on their shirt, happy days, nothing changes. If you don’t get it, I really can’t help you.

    It’s simple. Please explain your position with more detail, and we’ll see who’s “stupid”

    You’re not quite getting it are you. People should have the choice of a shirt with a sponsor or without. Companies aren’t putting shirt sponsors on so that scallies can’t be seen wearing the top around town, they put it on the shirt so they get media coverage from the team when they are on the box. Can’t say I’ve ever purchesad pint of Carling after seeing a runt with a footy top on nocking around. Can’t say I’ve ever fancied a pint of Carling fullstop. The club would sell more shirts if people had the choice to buy with or without a sponsor. So no, I don’t buy your theory that it would affect the shirt sponsor in any capacity.

    Would not affect the sponsors at all, because I wouldn’t buy one with a sponsor on. They should make it optional as to whether you want a shirt sponsor on a shirt you buy.
