A story caught my eye this evening that may reflect totally innocuous statements from the Chief Executive of Adidas, but as a forerunner for the future it concerns me. Adidas making a statement that although they are satisfied with the amount of shirts being sold they were not overly happy with the ” style of play” of Manchester United. We currently have SKY and other broadcasters dictating the timings of football games. Two of my teams games Brentford have been moved to friday night kick offs to accommodate TV broadcasting. This does not suit everyone, but to have a kit sponsor comment on the style of play? I don’t like this one little bit.
” Man Utd playing style is not exactly what Adidas wants to see”
Where might this lead to? Further influence? I don’t really know. I wonder whose kit Molesey use…….does it explain their style…..an excellent one actually, and better than Man Utd…
