So 2 Million divided over the 3 and a half years is about £600,000 a year...doesn't seem much to me, another £600,000 Evans wont invest probably

I'm surprised at how much I'm annoyed by it, actually. I literally thought it was a joke when I saw how bad the shirt looked.

It's another spit in the face of us being a family-oriented club. It's yet another obvious, clear misstep by management that has no connection to the fanbase whatsoever. Evans waits 10 years, then goes with an industry - not necessarily a company - that's at best morally questionable. And beyond that, the logo just looks absolutely terrible on that shirt.

I don't care about 'the realities of modern football' or any other reasoning to justify it - I don't like any component of it, and I think this should be the threshold at which we say as fans that enough is enough.

I just think we as consumers allow company's to walk all over us now. We're effectively changing and selling a new strip just pas mid season, a strip that will be changed in August.

It's also further sign of Evans spending less and looking to offload cost here. Why does he not just sell us off - the last few years have been our worse in the clubs history.

Everyone on this forum is always wrong.

Yeah, I agree - I could probably understand us selling out for success - if we're getting millions and it's going to take us to the next level and push us forwards. But if this languishing is success then I'd sooner keep the club's.. integrity, I guess is the word.

I have no problem with us being stationary in the Championship (though I'd sooner we play nicer football while doing it), but I really wish it would be one or the other. Yes, I'd sooner see us relegated but entertaining than this plus our football style and being where we are.

The logo tells you everything. The design, an array of meaningless colour, words and stars, has no connection to anything related to Ipswich or the club. Or at least, no connection to what we want Ipswich and the club to mean. It would appeal to some starstruck middle-aged gambling american woman living in Vegas, unable to escape. Nothing connected to a traditional footballing town, not even to England.

'Magical' and 'Vegas' -- two words Ipswich ain't.

It's a good fit for ME.

Magical Vegas is a brand name of Daub Alderney Ltd, which is owned by Stride Gaming, which is registered in Jersey, presumably for tax reasons. Classy.

Like me, it's investment into our football club. I'm happy, football is a horrible business, we can lay down in good old 1978 forever even if it was all better back then.

Look a bit crap, but don't they all.

Well, not quite equally, but yes I don't agree with that either. You can't even drink in view of the pitch, so why the hell would it be okay to advertise alcohol on shirts? However, I'm slightly less annoyed by it because at least they're a local company. Would it be different if Magical Vegas literally was Mannings at Felixstowe? It would still be sh!t, but at least it wouldn't be quite as sh!t.

Like I said, it's not keeping anyone up at night, but I think if you're going to sell out as blatantly as this, it had better get you success. Which I don't think this will. If not, you've sold out _and_ you've failed.

Can you buy replica shirts for children without the sponsor on? It should be illegal to advertise something like that to children

You have now. £2million well spent.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.
