Don't think any football club in the world has ever launched a new home shirt at a live gig at the ground, performed by an internationally famous artist who is a fan of the club, with images of the venue in the shirt.

I can only assume the people making comments relating to the launch being low key weren't at the Harlequin shirt launch in the VP lounge by our so called 'Best ever sponsors' in the dark days of V2001.

Linking Robbie Williams wearing the shirt in a gig at the ground that's imaged on the shirt is quality Marketing of the very highest standard.

A new record for shirt sales is coming, methinks!

Absolutely brilliant Vale.

 

 

Yes, I think I've finally got it!

Not low key at all.

Clever stuff.

Given that Doncaster Rovers have recently hosted The Killers I'm sure we ought to look to maximise the potential once a summer .

As a regular gig goer it's a given that folk will pay 6 quid a pint and rip off food prices. Obviously last night was all for charity but moving forward it's something that the club might look at who knows .

Darren, build it and they will come.

Speedy’s over the moon, I’m surprised they didn’t cover the pitch.

What a state.  Hardly surprising with the amount of booze that was being supped.  Whoever took the profits from the booze would’ve made a small fortune.  Hopefully the charities were the beneficiaries.

They have big hoovers to pick it all up. Won't take long. Then I assume that Speedy will be churning the pitch up and reseeding it anyway in the next few days/weeks.

Would be lovely to think that we didn't care about the state of the pitch because we're getting a new one layed, but I'm not sure we can stretch to that.

Doubt we'd physically even be able to. Quite a long lead time for new pitches I think. Maybe next summer all being well, as such an old clay surface can't help with our injury record?

Yes Gibbo was at Orient.

Wilson, Proctor, there'll be a few. 23 games on such a heavy pitch will cause long term problems, it's not just a case of lads having to be taken off for an acute injury during a home game, it'll also be the cumulative effect of being on that surface every other week. Hard to get concrete detail because DC gives so little detail about injuries away, no one could reliably predict what the team would be for a lot of this season until the teamsheets were published at 2/7pm.

I remember reading this season that someone at the club, possibly Carol quoting one of the players or DC, said that the training pitches are actually preferred by the players to the real one.

Yes, was just about to post along those lines, you put it better than I would of.

Someone told my daughters last night exactly that. I've not heard anything about that at all, maybe just rumours

We’ve moved off topic, but in the context of the comments above, Carol just been on RS and said she’d be happy to have other concerts at VP, in fact they were looking at this on a smaller scale prior to being contacted by RW management.  She also said she wouldn’t be against a repeat, although it would have to be right logistically, fitting in around the football.  One other interesting comment was that there are a couple of other potential projects with RW in the pipeline and even if these don’t happen he’s on board now and wants to be involved and help the club.

Edit: Forgot to post that Lee Blakeman maybe missed a trick not asking her about the state of the pitch after the gig and if Speedy and crew will need to put in a bit of overtime.
