Saints Ask Fans To Be Patient About New Shirt Replacement.
Sunday, 6th Sep 2020 09:34
Saints CEO Martin Semmens has been speaking to the media about the issue with the sponsors logo on this season's shirts and asked the fans just to be patient a little longer for the solution to be rectified.
Those Saints fans who rushed out to buy the new kit and then found that the shirt was almost immediately voided with a change of sponsor are being asked to be patient just a little longer
Saints CEO Martin Semmens has confirmed that the club are working towards a solution for those fans, with the chief executive pleading for patience from supporters as they look to try and resolve the issue.
“It was a very quick process to get things moving for the season," he told BBC Radio Solent Sport.
“Fixing the merchandising issue is much more complicated. We looked at whether we can bring all the shirts back in and take the logos off, or put a sticker over the top, but we have tried that and it doesn’t work, so that leads you to the only real conclusion, which is we have to reprint the shirt."
“At the moment we are looking into the viability of that and all we can really say to the fans is please have a bit of patience with us, but we will get it done and you will get what you need, but we are still working through those finer details.”
This also probably means that it will be a little while before the new shirts appear in the shops, the club now have thousands of shirts they cant sell, three designs plus the goalkeepers kits and you cant just get that number of shirts manufactured and shipped over to the UK in a short period of time.
Under Armour produce or indeed any kit manufacturer produce kits in large numbers across the World have schedules and to slot in big rush orders is not an easy task.

Here we are again, back in the (now) much-maligned EFL Trophy and a home tie against West Ham United U21s, and I think probably our last chance to stay in the competition? Robbie’s most recent rallying cry has been to “buy, buy, buy” when it comes to iFollow streams, and with the likelihood of supporters getting to matches receding, making streaming probably our only viable revenue stream, who can blame him. As an exile, I was never expecting I’d have many opportunities to see the U’s in the flesh this season, so he’s rather preaching to the converted as far as I’m concerned, but I do like the loyalty scheme he’s put together.
Away days by Andyconky
Many pounds have been spent and many train tracks have been travelled but who doesn't love an away day. Doesn't matter if its Chester or Chelsea or Lincoln or Liverpool, it's all good fun with a sense of adventure of what may happen.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?
