Brilliant will be good to see the response. Stock levels are terrible, at possibly the busiest time of the year. Not only jerseys, but all merchandise.

This just seems to be an ever occuring cycle here. Its very worrying when the club cant get such small scale issues running smoothly.

To their credit, Mooney, and the Jumper had the perfect hands on style to manage these things.

They were there, smelling tasting and breathing the matchday experience alongside us, and when things went wrong, supporters could see them trying to put things right, and the following game had organised things to prevent those mistakes again.

I am not getting any of that from this current set up.

We are at one of our highest peaks in year on the field. Yet off the field we are in the doldrums.

The shop we currently have is no better now, than the portacabin one we had at Stradey.

Just let that sink in for a minute.

It really is dreadful, to have no jerseys home or away available on sale in the lead up to Christmas and a sold out Boxing Day game is crazy. Shop workers suggesting fans should look on Lovell rugby as no further jerseys will be coming to the store. Really is amateur and is poor, we have a big game against bath coming up and people can’t get team merchandise. Piss up and brewery come to mind, and doesn’t reflect well on macron as a supplier.

I was over there last summer, and will be again this February. I found very little which would fit me, and I wear large in most shirts, but there were alot of XXX large and little else..

The quality was very poor for a 60 pound collared tee shirt. I still bought a couple though...and wear it to work with pride. Thumbs Up

And if I had to choose which side of the business the senior management got right it would be on the pitch.

Of course that's no excuse for the shambles that is the club shop. I'm sure subbing it out to Macron made perfect sense at the time of the deal. There's only so much bandwidth for the management team to use, and the resources seem to be aimed at commercial revenue now, which is why we can spend so much on the squad.

And Mooney et al  - did they really sort the match day experience right? Not sure, but I remember queuing to buy a wristband to get into the barn once - seemed very odd. Then all the restrictions on where you could wander with your plastic glass of beer inside the barn. You couldn't take it out of the bar areas to buy a pork roll.

The main problem is the place wasn't designed for the match day. The concourse bars everywhere except the south stand are crafty and soul-less. The barn is a compromise. 

 Places like Allianz park or Franklins Gardens with the huge open bars under the stand just seem so much more fan friendly.

We're still still here!

The Rhino year (s) was the best we ever had at PYS for march IMHO. Cotton replica jerseys, heritage stuff, loads of variety.

I liked that one though and it had Gavin Q sometimes serving, but I think it had more to do with the girl behind the desk.

I must admit the young lady at the shop who was about a third of my age was very pleasant and that made the overpaying less painful...Big smile

It is such a shame I have 2 nieces one I got in first and converted in to a Scarlets fan (before birth) the other my dad got to first and she's an O. I have to say this Christmas I could get pens pencils key rings stickers even glasses case and tooth brush from the O shop. But really struggled to get the my favourite niece much with Scarlet's on. There is also a lack of choice for us wider folk as the XL stuff sold out really fast. Well done Crys keep up the good work.

Have the other clubs who are supplied with Macron got kit in stock especially Jerseys home and away and women range? Such a shame. It was great in first half of season but something has appar gone badly wrong in December. One that  Crys will be very keen to solve!

Choose? Surely off the back of on field success, you shouldnt be choosing if you want the off field success. That should be one of the advantages of being succesful on the pitch....only a complete spanner could mess up the off field success of a succesful team surely?

I agree with all of your points in the second half of your post however. The main point i was making about Mooney and Jumper is that they were there. They could be seen to be doing something about it and had their fingers on the pulse. It takes weeks of moaning and CRYS16 getting involved for them to even notice its rubbish at the moment. 

Not many clubs have the facilities and opportunities that we have, yet somehow we still stink the joint up with amatuer attitudes.

Dave Stock was always in the Barn pre match. Wasn't as well known as Moon, so he may have gone under the radar. However he was there I can assure you.
