Robbery for kids. Mine are looking for 3 new home ones and an away one each. so I have to get 3 home and 3 away ones.
At them prices they will get either a home or an away jersey.

What a joke, and people have the nerve to say it doesn't effect the fans how much money the club waste on signings and wages for mediocre talent!

It's the fans that suffer ultimately!

The club don't set the process its nothing to do with the club. Adidas set the worldwide retail pricing policy. That's why they pay the club millions. How fo you think they make it back.
So don't blame the club on this one.
Retailers are buying the kit and making somewhere in the region of 55 / 60% gp .
Its no different to buying a tiger woods nike golf bag or roger Federer wilson tennis racket.
The only profit the club make in selling jerseys is through the official united retail outlets where they make the same margin as sports direct or heatons.

Ken - I assumed these were the clubs figures (ie our official store) - in which case we do get the money I believe.

The club could say 'no' to a shirt deal if they think the sponsor is going to fleece the fans (or at least negotiate a max price supporters would have to pay before agreeing), but of course they won't because they need the money to overpay for players. As always the fans end up overpaying one way or another to compensate.

I have no sympathy. If you keep paying it then they will keep charging it. Besides, it's more stylish to wear an old school shirt rather than the latest one. They're available for a lot less on ebay as well.

{Ed002's Note - I understand that there are cheaper replica kits available from Adidas rather than the "whatever material" kits the players wear.}
