General Krulak has explained how disappointed the Club are at the production faults in the new replica shirts leading to the further delays to it's launch (see: No Need To Get Shirty)
'The Club is HUGELY disappointed over the kit issue. As far as I can determine, the problem was one of the production of the kit...the weave was not close enough so there was a real chance of snagging and/or ripping.'
'Rather than put out a substandard product, we are having to wait until November to put out a good one.'
Adding, 'Obviously Nike will make a monetary 'fix' but that does NOT help our Fans and really doesn't help the Club. This is a real disappointment...but it was NOT the Club's fault. We are not going to put a lousy kit on sale...it would simply be wrong to do so.'
One some have forgotten who have blamed the club (most are right, this is a Nike problem) is that this is also costing the club, there is no profit in shirts they can sell!
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
