Text is : It must be me but why do some fans get so wound up about shirts. I've seen quotes today to the effect that we've been 'made' to buy new shirts. Surely there's no compulsion in this. If you can't afford a shirt don't buy one. As for kids whatever happened to saying no? I know I must sound like miserable old what name but I've always thought that anyone over
30 looks ridiculous in a football shirt anyway, besides it often prevents admission to many pubs and this can be particularly irritating on away trips.
I like to make a statement about my allegiance, which is unswerving by the way, so usually wear a badge or a garment with a subtle Pompey logo. As to changing the design of shirts, why is this so essential?
Surely a minor, subtle change would do for marketing reasons, after all, Newcastle stick to their time honoured black and white stripes and they seem to sell in their thousands. I've also seen comments today to the effect that the new shirt sales are a mere money making exercise. Come on get real what else?
After all the club can't get buy on gate receipts alone. Where are the missing 700 of our loyal supporters by the way?
Probably saving up to buy their new shirts.
