No longer my beloved NAM
They don't care about the club shop. It is the opposite of a labour of love for the club.
Agree mate but it pissed me off. We are adults and basically don’t give a duck about replica tat but as a kid it was so magical and such a big part of it all . Some nitwit is stealing these memories and experiences from the kids and it’s annoying !

Too late... this needed to be raised 2 months ago so they could read the gpg and act.

No away shirts, of any size, on sale yesterday as far as I could see. Going into winter and no winter coats on sale, although they had one on display behind the tills, as if it were a museum piece at the V&A.

Is the plan *really* for the club not to sell anything once we move? Or will there be pop-up match day stalls or something?

P*ss poor performance again by an appallingly run club shop that’s been inadequate and a shame on Brentford for years now. The portakabin in the forecourt was miles better. And Sutton United have a wider range of merchandise available for fans than we do. Sad.

Yes, there will be popups, where and how big and what stock levels has not been revealed.

Me too.

Wanting an away shirt for a fair few weeks now.
It is absolutely astonishing.
They managed to get a third kit out though, some with boxes, some without (for the same price mind) at a cost of 25% more than the away shirt, so they won that way.

My daughter has just started doing casual work at the club shop but is due to walk out as the manager is a ******. He's trying to make them work every day when their contract says otherwise. He says he's going to do rotas and if he puts her down for every day she's going to walk.

Looks like they've got some new bits in. You can buy a framed childs crayoning for just £40:

This old fashioned ball is pretty cool, sadly outside my price range

Flogging a dead horse, but in saying that.
A farewell Griffin Park set of Salt and Pepper pots in the shape of the floodlights would be good.
Little bulbs inserted so you can eat your dinner under the lights.
Get a green farewell Griffin Park tablecloth to go with it and voila.

Everyone has a choice to walk if they are not happy with their terms and conditions. Pretty crazy that she has just started and already fallen out with the manager. If the manager felt the same way surely they would be giving less hours not more on a casual contract

I’d say that after posting your daughter’s dispute with her employer on a public site her days are probably now numbered.....

Wait and see what happens first. He says could be different to he does.

They have or are releasing a replica of the legendary blue and white flecked away shirt of the early 90s :love:

Probably worthwhile sticking a cheeky application in as insider information suggests there maybe a vacancy very soon.
