The reason for the impatience here is the delay of information being released. Other clubs are releasing their kit by the same supplier. If ours had come out 4 weeks ago people wouldn't be as upset. I still see no reason we couldnt have done a preorder.
Fans will always speculate but if we manage get the kits out earlier than expected fans wouldn't need to leak information in the first place. It's the same with transfers. If we announced them all before the end of last season nobody would be speculating about who we are signing now..
I personally thought the kit release video last year wasn't a good use of funds. What's wrong with a well photographed player shot like all the other teams do? With a week to go, they could be building interest with teaser shots. It's all about using the excitement as a positive.
Obviously there have been things happening beyond our control this summer, but again, other clubs managed to the theirs out. Why not us?
