'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Money Rolls In!

As we`d discussed the other day, United`s proposed new kit deal has become reality.

The club have announced that a 40 million deal, spread over four years, has been signed with DHL.

United will now wear training kit carrying the logo of the multi-national company for Premier League matches, but not for Champions League matches.

Speaking about the deal, our chief executive, David Gill, had this to say,

"We are delighted that DHL has chosen to pioneer training kit sponsorship with the club."

Also, as the club continues to reap the financial rewards from its unique brand name, the club have also announced a sponsorship deal with a Vietnamese mobile phone company called Beeline.

This deal will see Beeline distribute United content to supporters in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

With United rumoured to have 16 million fans in Vietnam alone, it goes to show just how much of a global brand our name, and that of the Premier League, has become.

40 mil for a training kit sponsorship, madness.

Did you notice all the bench staff had the logo emblazoned on their tops?

Nice one guys. The ludicrousness of this deal makes it even more difficult for UEFA to find any fault with the Etihad deal (remember, the one yourselves, amongst others were so outraged by?) Cheers for that.

Outraged? If I remember correctly weren't you wondering why Fergie and Gill had nothing to say about it? Then when Gill did say something all he said was that he wasn't bothered, hardly seems like they were 'outraged' to me but moreso disinterested, not remotely bothered and couldn't care less.

Not talking about your boardroom, who will undoubtedly whined to the powers that be in private (David Gill is after all on the FA Board), but the numerous fans of your club, as well as l'arse and dippers who raised the roof over the deal - and not just on Vital.

This is a shrewd bit of business from United, then again it is the biggest sporting brand in the world, so why not. As for the ludicrous deal in *****ty, that is still under investigation by UEFA, where a broke airline, sponsors the biggest endorsment deal in football, it does not compare to the one United has struck with DHL. I did notice the DHL logo on the training gear, doesnt look that good.

I do love how you guys have this whole us against the world attitude going on. The constant victimising and protesting your innocence is humorous. My opinion is one of welcoming the added competition just as long the competition doesn't effect the game, both on and off the field, itself in a negative way.

The reason we have that attitude is because of the ignorance displayed by the likes of Nordkap in his comment above. Etihad is not a broke airline, it won the world's leading airline award at the last two world travel awards ceremonies. It is currently the fastest growing airline in the world and then you see idiotic comments like they are a "broke airline" coming from some ignoramus and then the sheep repeating it ad nauseum. I've some other news for you Nordkap U*d's sponsorship deal will also be investigated as will every other clubs within UEFA's umbrella as was stated by UEFA when the FFP regulations were published.

It is simply because before, City was an underachieving club, but at least the players wanted to play there and it had some purpose, now it is has turned into the biggest band of mercenaries, who couldnt give a s... about the club or the history, I remember Robinho though he had signed for Chelsea.. hillarious.. Despite now being loaded and able to sign up some good players on huge wages, the cant buy the history, the loaylty and the soul that runs through the clubs that has been succesfull over many years, like United, Liverpool and Arsenal. They so desperately wants to accepted, but that requires stabilty (read Tevez, Balottelli, Adebayor, etc) and winning trophies continiously, not just paying the highest salaries in the world. I agree with you FN7 I also welcome the competition, and I think it is good for the PL that City have brought in Silva and Kun, it will only make the league much more competitve, and increase the banter ;). However I do feel that the way both City and Chelsea are run (businesswise) is ruining football, and I hope financial fair play will help limit this. And before you get started Filth, yes I also hope this will lead to a better financing structure of United, as there is absolutely nothing wrong with the operational part of the business.

Bluedub, it might have won awards, but if you did your research you would find, that they posted their first positive EBITDAR in 2011, the first in their 7 year lifespan.

Nordkap - you have the highest paid player in the PL on your books. If U*d weren't challenging for trophies year in year out do you really believe the top players would want to play there just because they have "history"? Don't kid yourself. How is it ruining football Nordkap? I must of heard this crap a million times now and yet no one is able to give me any evidence of football being ruined by either what Chelsea did or what we are now doing. Please of you'd be so kind.

Yes Nordkap and if you did your research you would find that this is extremely quick timescale in the life of an airline to return a profit.

Bluedub, look to Spain, The teams dont share the TV revenues equally, hence Barce and Real making more and more money.. Do you think any other teams have a chance of winning La Liga other than Real or Barca? - no why... The gap between the top sides and the rest will increase, City or Chelsea, and even United will always outbit the rest, because they have limitless cash, hence clubs like Tottenham, Everton, even Arsenal suffers, because they cant compete (Loosing Nasri, because of the wages offered by City). Chelsea and City drive up the wages demanded by footballers, and also the fees, eventually this will lead to same situation as in Spain - no reel competion from the other teams. I am sure even you can figure it out.

Bluedub I never said anything about it not being a growing airline, my point was only how can an Airline that has not generated any profit sponsor the biggest endorsment deal in football, we all know how, so why deny it..

You've obviously never heard the phrase speculate to acculate then Nordkap? As for your argument about football being ruined, it's complete hogwash. Chelsea started in 2003 and yet football is only getting stronger and stronger, viewing figures are up, sponsorship revenues are up, merchandise sales are up etc. etc. The PL last year saw a record number of goals since it's inception, if that's what you call ruining football then ruin away is what I say because I found it highly entertaining. A lot more entertaining than the dross we had to endure during the late 90s and early noughties when it was just a two horse race and no one else could compete financially.

The PL WAS turning into La Liga, it just had 4 clubs monopolising the top spots and thus all of the cash rather than 2. Now along comes City to try and gate crash the party in a hurry, and everyone starts screaming like little biatches. The most amusing screams are the ones coming from the rags of course, seeing as we have no history and don't matter to them, nope, not one bit. Question for you - who here would have objected to manure and chelsea or manure and Arsenal becoming the top two teams in the league for the next 100 years, with nobody else given a fighting chance? Not one of you gave a flying fark about any of the teams lower down the league when it was you completely dominating the league, what's changed now? Oh yeah, someone has put the wind up you by offering a very real threat. Funny that.

FCB - club history is what Arsenal, Liverpool, and ourselves bring to the modern game, yourselves had history, but nothing in recent times, and Chavski - money was thrown at them.
Point is, yes you lot are going to be a huge threat this coming season, but how much has been spent on your team in recent years, how many good footballers have been put out to pasture ny City as they wanted someone bigger and better - you cant sell those players as they wont drop their wage demands as they are a greedy lot of feckers....
Nasri wants to win things - yes he has more chance of winning things with you guys than Arsenal, but like Tevez - he went there for money - him and CLichy talk a good talk but its full of big steaming bull***** - ye I would probably have done the same - but at least I would have been honest about it and say money was too good to pass up, not bull***** like most of your overpaid prima donnas
