Pompey kit suppliers go into administration!!!



Storagematt on the latest jinx to strike Pompey - or is it a Pompey jinx striking someone else...

Sportswear firm in administration - click here.

Makes you wonder who will supply the kit for next season?

When will it be ready for the fans?

Has the club paid Canterbury upfront for next season's kit?

This was from a thread in the Portsmouth Posts forum - click here.

The aprent compamy are still ok, the European arm I think was a franchise. Sacha had apparently invested in the shops but I don't know how heavily. Maybe this is what's causing the delay in the takeover.

In 1971 my football team decided to tie-dye our white shirts in a swirly pinky kind of colour. It looked lovely. So all is not lost, there are always solutions. But seriously, folks, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE WHEN WILL IT ALL END, IN A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD AND THE BANK BALANCE, I RENEWED MY SEASON TICKETS. I HONESTLY THOUGHT, FOR ONCE, WE HAD GOT IT RIGHT. Damn.

ah. and maybe the reason our kit hasn't come out? I thought we had a very solid kit supplier... clearly not.

Ah balls! another blow to us. Back to the ear mashing Jacko shirts anyone? Maybe Pompey can play in 'skins' this season! No clashing there, and cheaper for the fans.

lets not lose the faith just yet eh guys...

totally off topic but i see someone is taking the ***** again with the poll - its was 80-odd % in favour of good earlier on monday afternoon, now its 72% in favour of bad...either this is 'other fans' doing the majority of the voting of someone is trying to discredit vital pompey by ensuring 'negative' results are always shown on polls - whatever, without a doubt i will make it clear this is what i think is the case...

Maybe Dr SAF was having a bad day and went beserk on the poll? I am very surprised by the Canterbury thing. Seemed to be a company on the up. Trouble is Pompey shirts don't get sold outside of Pompey shops, and they'd have been banking on spreading the word in the football world much quicker than they managed to do. Shame. Thought they made a nice kit too.

By the way, the News is claiming that due diligence is at an end. http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/sport/Pompey-takeover-due-diligence-at.5454139.jp No official comment though, so not sure what to think just yet.

Tim that should read 'the News is claiming that due diligence is at an end AGAIN!! They called it last week and then pulled the article.

As to Canterbury the only good news is it is unlikely that they owe Pompey much if anything but they do make good quality kits!!

They did, and then took it down a few moments later! Will see what comes of it, but wouldn't advise anyone holding their breath in this situation!

Well since the due dilegence has just been completed according to skysports dr saf might be able to get us a good kit manufacture like nike or adidas. and a decent sponser!

personally, i thought that canterbury was the BEST kit manofacturer. I don't really like addidas kits, or nike ones. Still, we will have already bought the kit, and had it designed. but they may remove there logo from it?

Oh well. I didn't think their kits were anything special anyway. Lets just hope we don't strike a new deal with a company that specializes in Ice Hockey jerseys or Speedo or something. Umbro would be fine by me.
