Let's not kid ourselves we wil never repay a 1.7 trillion debt that is growing by the second. Who do we even owe it to ? What even is money ? If I made up money it's forgery . Up the reds

We borrowed it from time.

Interested to see what size crowd we're allowed then, and if we reach it. For me the current season ended weeks ago - Dover and Lynn decisions and no relegation undermined it. Next season? Cannot wait, bring it on.

Surely as many as we want ?.....Boris roadmap has restrictions lifted by end of June.

That's the positive view. Fingers crossed.

What an exciting update, can't wait to see what the new kits look like.

A huge thank you to Ian and SK Kits - the rainbow kit will remain iconic and a marker of the forward-thinking nature of the club.

That was political wasn't it? Masks as well for that matter. Ironically, I seem to remember a controversy concerning Puma, the Jamaica Olympic team and a certain rapper... among other things.

It was about solidarity. We replaced our red and white stripes with rainbow to showcase everyone is welcome at JDS.

I've got a Solidarity badge somewhere, as in Lech Walesa.

Good to see on Alty website that SKKits will still be involved at the club going forward in some capacity... Ian Senior & his business have been great supporters of Alty for over a decade.

High quality highlights of what came across on RR as a poor game. Some very good saves from Tony, but how far out of the triangle by the flag was that last corner taken from?

Very good work from whomever does Wokings highlights.

Teams evolve though, they cannot stand still. The nucleus of the squad is still with us. I remember the great team which Kingy captained until his knee injury. We stuck with that team bar 1 or 2 changes for 5 years. Eventually in 1982, their bubble burst and Tony Saunders resigned if I remember rightly. I felt that team was left for too long and lost a little of it's winning mentality. Changes with new players keeps others on their toes, and the team fresh and up for challenges. A lot of the squad have won titles etc, but you still need to battle at higher levels and the team evolves or it will lose it's hunger to win trophies.

The management team and board I feel are doing this exactly right, still think they need to extend the management contract though, give Phil and the team a little more time, we are getting there.

Tony Sanders did resign, and to my shame I recall shouting "Sanders Out" when I stood on the old terrace to the left of the Main Stand as you face it. My only defence was I was nobbut a boy who knew not what he was doing.

Tony Sanders. Club Legend.

Alty mascot in the pre WW2 days. Apparently buried somewhere near the corner of the golf road and pop side.

Hope they don't dig him up when they lay the new pitch!
(if they haven't already!)

Poor old Jeb will be well rotted down by now.

Does anybody have photos of Jeb, preferably when s/he was alive?

Ta.

I'm not clear.
What exactly is in it for us as a club?
Are they giving us sponsorship money? There doesn't seem to be any explanation of the benefits apart from being associated with a big company.
Am I missing something?

You're missing quite a few things, I'd say, all of which are made clear in the article on the official website. It will increase revenue, it's prestigious and the players will benefit from the superior quality of the shirts themselves. This is fantastic news and so manifestly in the best interests of the football club we all support that I'm bemused anybody would fail to welcome it.

Well that's telling me! 😉

Apart from the players comfort I can't see how we benefit. Puma won't be marketing them, we will. We'll sell more or less the same quantities. Why would somebody buy an Alty top if they weren't a fan. A fan wants an Alty top because it's an Alty top, be it by Puma or anybody else.

Oh well, I'm happy to let this float merrily by, the club are very pleased with the deal, so that's good enough for me.

Time for a Guinness.

Flower power only gets you so far. No shock there whatsoever.

I really enjoyed that. Thanks RR.

Could, perhaps, should have won that but I am pleased with a point against a team aiming to go top.

Well done Alty.
