It's obviously very good news but perhaps could have just been announced with bells and all rather than the tease factor which drew a lot in to thinking it would be a major signing.

This is my point, if the company I work for secures a new a commercial contact it doesn't announce it via a public tease.

If it was a new a player I'd get it but not a sponsorship.

Our club is very amateur at times.

Just cause it's not a player doesn't mean it's not a major signing! We've been crying out for investment and this is a great deal. Not the club's fault if people get carried away.

The club led us to be carried away. My last comment on this matter, I totally agree the investment is good but just announce it don't do it via a tease.

What?! I can't believe we haven't signed Sonny Bill or Kieron Read, I can't believe the club would do this........Christ, some people need to lighten up. This is awesome news, well done to those involved

This is very important news, but not big news...why because as a supporter we cannot put a price on it, so do not know what it means.

50 Quid, 5K, 500K, 5 Million...we don't know.

Where will the money be spent, pitch, players, directors remuneration, we don't know, so its hard to get excited about.

So its important because it helps the club, to what extent we do not know.......however a big signing would allow us to dream and get excited about it.

Completely agree. Undoubtedly fantastic news for the club, however, I'm not sure this was the appropriate medium for it to be conveyed.

That said, Mitsubishi may have requested such fanfare.

I'm certainly not a fan of social media teasers / announcements about announcements & as such avoid twitter.

'The club led us to be carried away...' No, you allowed yourself to be carried away...maybe next time you'll show more restraint!
