Been a change recently with Carrie looking after Stadium Event and Nathan the commercial stuff. New staff doesn't help as need time to settle in. Crys will want to address big time I am sure -especially the shop.

Has anyone spoken or written to Ray at the Macron shop? Might be more productive to get their side of the story.

Spoken to him on Twitter and his reply was "I'm not here to bat away criticism" and he locked his account.

This whole Macron farce needs to be put to bed, they need to go and someone like vx3 needs to come in.

The problem with us signing long term kit deals is companies just don't care. They have the contract why bother. We need a reputable kit and merch provider, preferably one of the big ones. Nike, adidas, under armour or canterbury.
Macrons quality and range is sub-standard and overpriced, a real shame as i think the away jersey design is fantastic. But the stitching and fabric just isn't.

I know of another pro sports club in wales wrexham fc who are also macron and theres plenty of stuff available there over christmas. They have 3 jerseys all sizes available over xmas too. Previous to macron they had adidas and nike both were very poor with delivering kit on time. The wrexham macron store is very popular. Ive ordered a few things from there online last few years and had no problem with getting my XL stuff tbh. They really need to up their game in the macron shop in PYS as lack of stock is denying the club vital income. Are northampton experiencing the same problems as us seeing as their with macron too?

How on earth have we come to this?

No replica kits for Christmas and no shirts until the new kit comes out?

Somebody needs hauling over the coals for this!!

Can you see this happening at any other club?

I'm absolutely dumbfounded by this.

Launched our replica kits 3 months early, under-estimated the impact that would have on our rolling stock levels, and obviously didn't buy enough product in total as sales exceeded previous buys. Then didn't have a replenishment programme in place that brought in drops of new product at key times ( pre home Euro games, Xmas etc).

This sort of stuff happens regularly right across the retail platform. No one is exempt from good selling product impacting stock for sales.

So I'll make a suggestion rather than jump on the bandwagon...
Possible Buy profile..
Kit launch in May '18...25% of the total buy across all ranges and sizes.
Replenishment in week 6~8( in time for season start) ..50%
Top up/replenishment at the first Euro home game (10%) and pre Xmas ( 15%)

The supplier would make it all in 1 run, but we can call the stock in, and more importantly only then pay for it, to the sort of profile above.

It's disappointing not to maximise sales, but I'm sure the club will review and learn from this.

Sales of replica wear drop off the cliff from Jan onwards, with the only notable movement of replica gear being when it goes on sale.

The only bit I do keep repeating, there are no manufacturing platforms sat waiting for such shortage of stock issues, most factories are full to optimum for 4-6 months in advance...at least the good ones are anyway. We are also talking probably about needing another 500-1000 more items across all ranges and sizes...a tiny amount and very un-attractive and in-efficient for any factory to make as a run.

Thank you for the insight once again Wil.

Unacceptable but we are here now.

CRYS will raise this and other issues with the Club. In the meantime it may help if people held back a little.

I think some quiet diplomacy may get some answers which CRYS will post on here or sent out directly to members by e mail.

Thanks Wil.

It’s not the first time you’ve explained this.

Hopefully, more will remember it this time.

I don't think there is any so called man love here. Indeed you would think a bit of free unofficial consultation with eg Wil as a man who knows the Rag trade inside out would have been considered! It's the lack of explanation and communication with supporters that is so disappointing. No wonder fake copies of jerseys pop up!

As a fall back check out for any Llanelli RFC retro kit from vx-3 in Dafen. Nice 25 year Oz game anniversary gear.

Mine is original. 

I am fine with Wills input.

But I am not the only one who notices the little entourage of sickliness that comes after his every post. Especially as sometimes he is saying the very thing others were shouted down for.

Plenty others see it.

It was brought to my attention a while ago. 

I thought it was time it was highlighted. Are people aware they are doing it?
