Missed out on kits again

It’s a complete joke frankly regardless of what excuses people make it shouldn’t be this hard to buy a new strip. No other big club sees a shambles like this with stock
I still think people are making a bigger deal of it than is required.

I walked in to the shop yesterday and bought one no bother. Is it THAT difficult?

That it was May as a pre-release seems to have folk blowing up. If they option was to wait for 6 weeks and just have the entire load ready to go, people would have been bemoaning the fact that it wasn't released earlier.

There have maybe been issues here and there but that is not accounting for the fight we've got with our retail contract at present.

People just seem to go nuclear immediately these days if anything isn't 100% perfect NOW!

Didn't get one today? Buy it in a few days time...

Any thread seems to just be you making out its no big deal getting one.

The fact that we have loads of fans outwith Glasgow and work means they can't get to the shop.

The online store sells out as fast as they come in.

It's undeniable, no other club has this problem buying their strips.

Managed to get an XL ordered via the website yesterday no problem. Got the despatch email today and should have it by the end of the week.

Can you imagine the amount of calls they are getting as we are out of stock. They would need a full time call centre to deal with everyone ringing every other minute.

People just need to chill (easy for me to say as I preordered - which was an option weeks ago as it happens). My memory may be playing tricks on me but I never remember our new shirt being released in May before. I’m sure everyone will have it in the next month or so which is more the timescales that I remember releases previously.
I’m sure I remember it coming out in May 1992 and some people wearing it to the Cup Final?

I’m happy to wait, my son will want one with someone’s name & number and that means waiting until the end of August depending on who he wants and the transfer business is done.

Name me another club going through what our club is on its retail deal?

There's no point in stamping your feet saying "no other club" when it completely ignores the facts around our situation. That's when everyone has to take a wee step back and not moan their arse of that everything isn't perfect.

I'm also past the stage of bothering about this modern attitude that simply because "I" can't get it, the World is falling to shite. People moan about the shop being open at 11am instead of before they go to work, people moan it's not open past 6pm, people moan they don't live in Glasgow so can't get to it, people moan they can't check the size of the strips online and might have to go in to the shop to swap it.

People outwith Glasgow can't make a trip during the week as they work? Go on the weekend then. Get a pal to buy it and mail it to you if you're in Aberdeen and even that trip is too much.

The online store sells out quickly? That means people are getting them. You'll get yours...

You want to just be able to order it online while they don't have it in stock?

People moaned last year that they ordered online and they were then in the shops first. They've changed that this year on that basis. They can't win.

Everyone that wants a strip or piece of kit will get one. Patience is the name of the game and the furore around it all, given we couldn't even buy them at all a little over a year ago, is beyond sensible or reasonable.

I certainly remember us wearing our new strip in that final but I wasn't certain it was released by that point. We did it in 1994 too wearing the "Gazza" strip against Dundee United (thanks Ally Maxwell and Dave McPherson) before he signed too. I can't remember if it was on sale at that point either.

What's the retail actually got to do with it now?

Hummel are making strips and selling them. So there is obviously nothing stopping them making 100 strips or 100,000.

You seem to want to always have a moan about people wanting everything now.

A strip is released and the fans want to give the club money to buy it but can't. That's a problem no matter how you care to dress it up.

Theres loads stopping Hummel making 100k of them just now and if that's how you think it works we're as well stopping this now.

My moan about people is legitimate. They'll get a strip shortly. Problem solved.

Does anyone know if the St Enoch shop have any of last years mini kits available? My best friend is having twins and I really want to get them their first kits, but as they grow so quick I would rather get them cheaper ones! I would be looking for 0-6 or 6-12 at a push! Thanks :)

There is no historical data for them to base their forecasts on.

One year through a retail deal that is being taken to court time and again.

Four years of practically no sales through Sports Direct , who are still refusing to advise the club on how many sales they did when the club paid £3m to get out the 7 year notice period.

You do know how forecasting / planning / logisitics affects working capital , don't you?

You might get them in JD sports larger branches on the discount rails...

Don't you get it? HE didn't get HIS strip IMMEDIATELY and therefore everything is wrong with the entire process.

Away with your logic and appraisal of the situation.

Does my posts sounds petty or moany or dramatic like you try to make out?

Or is it a reasonable question to ask why strips sell out within an hour of going online?

No I do not know anything about forecast. Well maybe except for the second season Hummel haven't managed to provide adequate stock

They absolutely do sound dramatic. You're across pretty much all the topics on the subject (like you're complaining about me doing) and while others seem to be getting on with buying what and when they can, then waiting for other stock to come in, you're still on here being "moany" as you put it.

They sell out so quickly as there's a massive fucking demand for them which is a good thing. You'll get your strip / merch when the people who've been quicker than you so far online (or made an attempt to get to the store we're allowed to operate with) stop beating you to it.

There was a sale rack of last years gear and I didn't see any on it when I was in the other day. It was all adult gear / strips / goalie tops etc.

About as good as you might get (and there's the whole SDi side of this) would be these ones from the year before we started with Hummel.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Puma-Gla...66:m:m3rxjOjb8hvTvlIscKs1_rg&var=424285334157

Rather than given MA anything, I'd be inclined just to fork out the £40 for the new kits compared to the £20 that last years ones (if anyone has stock left) were on sale at if you can afford it. If you pick the right size, they'll get the years wear out of it. My two did last year certainly.

As I said I noticed lat season stock on sale in JD sports at Silverburn and Buchanan St the last time I was in Glasgow (over a fortnight ago)

The NIAR strip with the big collar was available in the May, I got it for my birthday from the people in my office. Must have been available around the Laudrup Cup Final but can’t remember if it was out before it or not.

I think the Cup Final might have been mid-month because of Euro96?

I ordered a large online yesterday. Went down to the store today and they never had any L’s in stock (was for my mate going away his holiday).

Not long out the shop, tons of kits but unfortunately no kits 3-4.

The women said just go on the website and get one...

For those of you who got your new top. I find them much larger than last year? Is it just me or is everyone finding out the same thing?

Just in there getting a home top, seemed to have plenty of every size available. None of the black/orange training tops left it looked like.

One thing I couldn’t get my head around was the fact that there’s no changing facilities at all. Staff said just to try on over what I was wearing in the middle of the store. To top it off, there are no mirrrors except for next to the hat section so you can see your head or your crotch, but nothing in between! Seems like a massive oversight!

I got lucky last week at St Enoch. Went in the morning and said stock would be arriving at 1pm. Managed to get a medium and 2 mini kits for my boys. They didn’t even have time to put them on the rails as they were going straight out the door.
