    Kit mugs

    These look great.

    But up to £14.40 for a mug!!!



    Whilst we can, and should, be incredibly proud of 20/20 I've noticed that there seems to be an increasing piss take when it comes to pricing in the club shop.

    I'm sure some people will pay these prices. Some people will pay anything. But it's a shame those on a tight budget seem to be being priced out of more and more merchandise.

    Other notable recent exhibits include £15 for a Toblerone and £10 for a jester hat (that didn't even have LTFC on it and was more red than orange).

    Surely pricing things more realistically will actually increase sales and therefore probably provide more profit, also give the club greater profile by having merchandise "out there", and not leave supporters with an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

    And yes I will be contacting the club to share these thoughts.

      I am surprised that they have not thought of selling Enamel Mugs.

      Also, These ceramic mugs are too small, and should think of selling over sized ones.

        Whoever is choosing the merchandise has no taste.

          Good post, thought that for a while now, shockingly overpriced tat on view, hard to pick a favourite, 16 quid for 2 bog standard supermarket tumblers is a contender

            The Luke Berry mug is discounted to £4 which is more like it. For some reason it seemed to be regularly reduced for a chunk of last season too. Always felt a bit sorry for it sitting there all lonely on the shelf with a reduced sticker.

                My wife looked at the babygrow to surprise me, because we are expecting our first, and she was so shocked at the price she told me what she was planning and said she wasn’t going to pay for it!

                Club shop gear has been a rip off for a while now, to the extent where it's becoming greedy and not just a profitable mark up. The club need to remember the fans stuck by them in the tough Conference times and before that too. The Portugal package cost was insulting.

                  It's not very often you and I agree but you're spot on with that post.

                  Added to the fact that most items of clothing you pay over the odds for only for them to be fukked after 3 washes and the £1500 trip abroad, it's all getting a bit shit tbh.

                    The end of season dinner was the worst for many years (probably worst they have ever done). Tried to fit too many in making it uncomfortable, food service was ridiculously slow, poor menu (chicken for starter and main), generally a shambles that started with a half an hour queue to get into the venue.

                    They are now more interested in commercial organisations than the supporters who attended these events for years when they couldn't sell them to anyone else.

                      On your last point - the cost of the John Moore and the Milennium Club season tickets went up by over 25% - which was announced after the cut off time for season tickets. The club know others will buy any that are not renewed. So fans who are unhappy at the price hike are in a difficult position. A pity as many were there in the non league days, but I can see both sides to the argument.

                        When someone as loyal as yourself starts to question a few things perhaps it's time for those involved to reassess.

                          I know a lot of others that felt the same about it.

                          I do my best to support the club in what ever ways I can but I don’t like to feel that I am being ripped off. There comes a point where you cannot justify the expense for what you are getting in return. I know that auctions make a lot of money for the club but 90 per cent of the people there are either not interested or couldn’t afford/justify the sort of amounts that they sell for so most of the people in the room are getting bored for half an hour while the auction is going on.

                          I stopped taking part in the higher or lower type “game” several years ago. The prize was “up to £400”. It was a tenner a go and I would guess that there were probably 600 people there. It turned out that the prize was £200 with a chance to gamble it for one of three boxes containing £400, £200 or nothing.

                          Although I had a couple of £5 strips of raffle tickets, I wouldn’t have wanted most of the prizes - a round of golf (I don’t play golf), a table for 10 for the club’s comedy night etc. One of the prizes was a Matty Pearson mug - nothing wrong with it but not as a prize in a raffle with tickets at a fiver a strip.

                            Wow, L. Never been to one of those things in my life, really not my thing, but to see those comments... I have been to other events with similar auctions, which seem little more than an opportunity for the sunbed crew to get their cock out and wave it about for a bit, completely dull for the vast majority...

                            I assume you've fed your comments back to the Club? Any response?

                              I think that your comment about the auction sums it up !

                              I haven’t contacted them specifically about it this time. Most of it is things that I have told them before. I know that several others have been in touch with them. I did refer to some of the problems in am email about kit sponsorships but I haven’t had a reply.

                              One of the other STH I stand with in the Oak Road was working the catering that night and was telling us beforehand how poor the menu was and how badly organised it was set to be. Whoever did the booking skimped on the costs compared to usual.

                              Surely the whole event is aimed at corporate customers who can right-off against tax Mr. Accountant Sir ?

                                I would say that it constitutes entertaining (from a tax point of view anyway) so would not be an allowable expense.

                                When we were in the Conference those corporate customers were nowhere to be seen (in the main). It was the “ordinary” fans that supported it in those days. The same with kit sponsorships.

                                One of the penalties of moving up the leagues I suppose.

                        Maybe the mug will come in handy on the cheap trip to Portugal?

                          If its overpriced you can get a cheaper version elsewhere . RAther give the club my money but if i was that desperate i wont be ripped off for it.

                          As for greater profile..i avoid people in jester hats outside match days Actually i just avoid them..they tend to be 20 quid short all the time..

                            Agree 100%. The club really need to rethink this as it seems they are taking the piss. I know its revenue for the club, but ,I'm not putting anymore of my money into shirts etc. Only my lad if he wants them, but as said before the quality is crap and they are ruined after few washes.
