    At least West Ham got a sponsor, West Brom are still trying to get one. Cheers.

    I seem to remember, 15 years ago or so, despite having a sponsor, West Brom used to offer fans the choice of buying shirts with or without its branding. I never buy my club’s replica shirt, but if a ‘pure’, unsponsored version were available then I probably would. I guess, from the corporate point of view, this would diminish the value of the sponsorship. But if the Baggies have seen record sales of this season’s unsullied shirt then there must be an imperative to look at it again – even from a purely financial perspective.
