      When I read the headline I was expecting to see a 60 or 70 mill boost for rafa, and although all the little things together can make up enough for a decent player it's not really massive, is it. All contributions wellcome, as long as G & H don't take it for expenses, Rafa will benefit.

      US$7.5 million over 3 years is hardly massive when we have 20M at risk here if we fail to qualify for the knockout stages of the CL.

      Based on some of the moronic comments on here I think the club should just cancel this deal and send the money back as it clearly doesn't satisfy some of our fans.

      Then maybe we should close the club shop because it doesn't generate 100 million per year.

      Stop selling food and beverages at the ground too, yeah? After all, it can only possibly generate a few hundred thousand a year so what is the point, eh?

      While we are at it, why not stop charging for match tickets, it only brings in a few mill?

      OK, OK....I apologise for the heavy sarcasm but...seriously...some people on here just want to bi*ch and moan even when we get GOOD news. What is wrong with you?

      I'll say this.  Its a step in the right direction.  Leaving that to one side, what we REALLY want is for Hicks and Gillett to give our club the proper money we are due to pick up some quality players. 

      Unfortunately for us these sponsorship deals aren't enough to get what the club really needs.  Depth on the bench.  Prospects like David Villa, etc. etc.

      A partnership with Halliwell Jones BMW has been announced as well. Not sure if theres any £££ involved though. Just looks like they are the clubs official car supplier.

      'expected' to bring in £4.5M over three years.

      Seeing as we pay £1M in interest every 9 days - I reckon this 3 year deal will pay our interest for about 5 and half weeks.

      Wow. F***ing yippee.

      I hope you'll agree that there's f**k all "moronic" about suggesting that (a potential) £4.5 million, over three years is hardly a "massive cash boost".

      It's an N'Gog every year! ;)

      I don't think anyone is spitting on the money, we're all aware that we can do with all the help from sponsorship deals we can get (though I'd steer clear of renting out the stadium name :P).

      We're moving in the right direction, I think it's just the title of the article that's (correctly IMO) pissing everyone off. It's hardly a massive cash injection compared to the level of our debt or interest payments, now, is it?

      OK so it isn't a massive cash injection but in all fairness they're not a shirt sponsor or anything, they're just a betting partner. It's extra money that we wern't getting before. For too long this club has been behind the likes of United commercially and it is about time we got our act together. Can't believe we didn't have a commercial director appointed up until fairly recently, the appointment of Ian Ayre is probably the only good thing to have happened at boardroom level since the yanks took over.

      It's better than a kick up the arse - but when you are continually kicked up the arse comparative values seem irrelevant.

      It's not moronic. Your sarcasm was moronic. When you see a headline saying massive cash boost, and then see just 4.5 million then in this day and age, it is not much really.

      Every little bit helps though, but we will see none of this. Straight into payments.

      When it comes to financial news, it's hard to see the positives because of them two lying beauts.

      Hate them for making us so pessimistic.

      As Ayrton said, it's an Ngog a year. ;) It would be nice to actually see the money mind.

      There's nothing else on the table mate, even when something apparently positive transpires there's always a hidden agenda, the owners inspire cynicism.
