Club directors have claimed that the W**** factor hasn’t put fans off and that this season’s black & white release has been the best selling strip of recent years, anecdotal (with our own eyes) evidence would appear to be at odds with that.
I feel he has shot himself in the foot by slapping Wonga on everything, even a normally smart polo shirt has it slapped on it. I would love to see the home shirt sales based on the first week last time we released a home shirt and this week now the home shirt is released.
Maybe it is personal, he won’t wear Sports Direct wristbands, he didn’t like Danny Simpson’s lass, his chinos are the wrong colour, or he sends all of his wages back to poor people in his country who now no longer have to borrow money off SenegalWonga.com in order to get through another month.
If Cisse did end up being the only player in the Premier League not to have the sponsor’s logo on the shirt…what a story that would be! Methinks Newcastle United have massively undersold themselves with this sponsorship deal.
