All meh for me, to be honest, I really had to think who was on our shirt this year, it just washes over me. As long as they are paying loads of money, who really cares.

In fact, since Mita Copiers, the only ones I can remember straight off was Muller, Ast (and I only know that for obvious reason) Rover, Acorns and someone called Cows.

It really doesnt matter in the grand scheme of things

I prefer a sponsor that we as supporters can feel comfortable with.

My son is 9, his Villa kit has no sponsor on it due to ours being a betting company. He asks why his kit is different to the one the players wear. I then have to explain what betting is and why it's not something for 9 year olds.

Could be worse mate we could be sponsored by Durex

I couldnt care less if its a betting company, nobody seems to complain about Beer companies sponsoring shirts and being all round the ground. I'd say alcohol has ruined far more lives than gambling

In fairness, if I could buy a kit with no sponsor, I'd probably pay extra for it.

You'd be surprised!
Oh, I am on record as being against sponsorship from booze and tobacco organisations.
(Yes, I'm a killjoy.)
