Therefore, we cannot be too surprised that this shirt appears more expensive than others. The club won't have made huge amounts of these shirts so they were always likely to be expensive.
I'm pleased SV listened to the fans and that one has been made. It looks great.




Absolutely. Also the meeting with a few supporters a month or so ago, no doubt somebody mentioned this. The club probably reacting to it? Moaning when it isn't done, moaning when it is?
:shock:

But there again aldi lidl and b&m can supply their goods cheaper than tesco sainsburys and M&S its all about profit margins
It appears Grfc wants to be a premier league football club not a team for real rugby fans anymore


How people in this day and age expect to a professional sports club to still act like little local team is beyond me. We want grfc to be a premier team.... Hence we're in 'The Premiership'. I'm sure you'd be the first to moan if we started posting multimillion pound debts.

A few years ago, when the good king Wray joined forces with the evil empire of Johan Rupert, I recall some loyal and long term Sarries fans uttering very similar sentiments to 'not for real rugby fans anymore'.

Don't hear much from them anymore....

I suspect if/when Glaws achieve similar success to Sarries, our supporters views will change similarly - success breeds acceptance apparently........

Fickleness is a wonderous thing.

Even if we did by some miracle win the league, I ain't paying £75 for a shirt covered in sponsor logos. Fickle, nor an idiot, I am not...

Unfortunatly I have to agree that it's just the usual money making madness from Gloucester.

Example: Glos Superdry shirts on the website and in store 'reduced to £35' ... yet direct from Superdry.... £21.99.

Maybe they're just buying up those and adding 50% as their profit? Poor sales research by them. If any was done.

I was made redundant on Wednesday. My colleagues bought me a voucher for £35 for the shop in the Quays,

I went in there today and couldn't see a thing I wanted. It's all relative I suppose.

Might get a polo.

And that's your justifiable choice.

But I suspect that a % of others will be take a different view - everyone is different.

P.s
My curent replica shirt that missus or I haven't ruined in wash has eagle star on it...
(C&g and unipart versions are long gone unfortunately) and so am happy with what we have.

But if I had nothing else I probably would buy the latest.

That's what supporters do, eventually, however illogical it is.
