King said it got signed at 3pm today so he was guessing when they were in talks.

What, do you think they just rolled up today and signed a document with no talks over previous weeks?

Here's a tip, it's better to say nothing and have people suspect you might be an idiot than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

He took a guess after hearing a rumour that talks were positive. King also said a few months ago he was hopeful more than ever and also stated this in Vegas.

King said he flew in over night still with it not over the line.

That's the facts. Not rumour and guesswork.

Jog on. Next.

And you know that how exactly. That it was pure guesswork?

If you had watched King's press conference he made it pretty clear that they didn't even know if they were going to get a deal until this morning and he was thinking he would be flying back to South Africa on Friday with nothing, he also says discussions have been ongoing for 9 months and lawyers were still litigating this morning. So no way was the deal 'done and dusted' weeks ago, if it was they would have announced it then and released a new kit, or at least submitted another kit to UEFA last week, but as King himself says they didn't because the deal wasn't agreed until this morning. It is pretty easy to make a prediction about something when both King and Robertson have said in the last 3 months they were hoping to have something in place for the new season, it was obvious he meant a new deal with Sports Direct, doubt anybody believed they were just going to walk away.

Aye and he's a bastion of truth and honesty right enough.

The topic title....weeks ago. King was only in Vegas at the start of June and stated things were positive but still a bit away. He was hopeful of getting something announced in the Summer.

That clearly reads the deal wasn't done weeks ago. A good guess well done but don't try and make him out to be the 4th bear.

Exactly mate. The OP is Keith Jackson's brother.

So you don't know then and are applying your own guesswork to this debate.

Thanks for clearing that up. :tu:

Aye cause the club is going to hold off for weeks, not design a new kit, submit the old kit, then sell them for half the price that a new kit would cost just for the fun of it.

I suspect there will be a new first team kit out for Christmas after the huge backlog of old kit has been punted. If so then it's a smarter move than I gave them credit for.

Both UEFA and SPFL rules state that kit designs that are submitted for the season can't be changed throughout the season, second and third strips can be released later though and King said in his press conference that they are working with PUMA to release these in the next couple of months. I think we should be giving him a decent amount of credit for getting this deal sorted, I think a lot of it had to do with pressure from SD shareholders, but the board should be praised for this as it's beyond what most fans would have expected.
