    I liked the Puma kits. UA's are too "busy".

    Apparently Pochettino demands it of the kits too...

    The Champions league Puma kits were probably the best kits we've ever had. Other than that, they were ok. Replica ones fell to bits in the wash for me.

    Interested as to why you say this.

    My thinking was that the kit could tie with the stadium which would be linked to the NFL. kind of a package deal for max revenue and exposure.

    I don't think the Nike Arena would be worse or better than say, Delta Centre, Easy Jet Avenue or Cathy Pacific Hart Lane. I'm picking airlines here due to Emirites and Etihad.

    Under Armour cuts into Nike's market share in the states by the minute. The gap is closing and rapidly.

    Those French kits look smart; until you stick a dirty great red sponsor across the front....

    Tough to know who exactly are the ones leaking the kits.

    So you want to leave UA because they arent promoting us as they do Steph Curry, arguably the best NBA player in the world? Or Jordan Spieth, arguably the best golfer in the world? Lol. They dont promote Notre Dame either, despite being UA's #1 college. Or Maryland, despite being to UA what Oregon is to Nike. Also, Nike doesnt exactly promote teams either.

    On 8th March 2011 we announced 16m$USD (approx 10m£) on a 5 year deal with UA
    We still have another season (till 2017) to go on with UA.

    If we really going to sign 30m£ with Nike, thats the best possible contract we could get - 3 times the current deal is no brainer IMO. I hope, UA matches the offer with Nike. If they do, I really want us to stick with UA - if not Nike is the obvious choice

    Harry Hotspur reckons Nike want to buy the club. Sponsor the shirt and stadium. The whole shebang. $1.6bn

    UA supply a number of colleges, but there is no widespread deal. Each college negotiates their own deal. Oregon for example are generally the flagship programme of the latest Nike uniform. The NFL is different as mentioned, with a league wide deal.

    Wrt them outbidding Nike, I know, with 99% certainty, that UA monetarily outbid Nike for the big kahuna of colleges, the University of Michigan, last year. The reason UA didnt get the contract is because Michigan is a traditional Nike school and the fans(myself included) and big donors were infuriated when they left Nike for Adidas about 8 or 9 years back and have desperately wanted to go back to Nike. Also didnt hurt to have Michael Jordan personally call Jim Harbaugh to offer him becoming the first football team wear the Jumpman brand.

    Agree. It would be good if UA could match Nike's offer, the we could stick

    So the Nike deal would start the season we move onto the new stadium?

    Sponsor the shirt and they have their flash on it sponsor the stadium and they have their name on it, it is their stadium and we are their club, that will be the case with any sponsor but Nike push the ownership role, Dr Faustus comes to mind.
    The Nike name defining our club is a step too far.

    I think I'd trust Ole Gibbsy before listening to HH, the conflicts of interest created by Nike owning a football would be mind boggling.
