    Anyone bothered if the extra money pays for someone who wins points?

    Or bothered that Wigan have the same sponsor!

    Going to be strange seeing a Bolton top without Reebok on it but Sponsors are irrelevant long as they paying good money.

    The 188bet won't be on juniors tops, seems like a good idea in reality, but I reckon the kids will be naffed off they won't be wearing a replica!

    New kit on display this weekend too I think, I suppose it can only be a good thing if it gets rid of that ridiculous blue bib we've been sporting this season.

    Not too bothered about the sponsor either, doesn't make a difference to me.

    I really doubt any five year old is going to receive his Wanderers shirt for his birthday and suddenly feel the urge to open a 188.bet account.

    Something that would require an email address, card and to be over the age of 18!

    RE NEW KIT.

    IF U DON'T LIKE IT DON'T GET ONE. DON'T START MOANING ON HERE PLEASE.

    When I seen your top I was nearly sick, it's horrible. WTF are them lines? :laugh:

    Least it makes ours look a little better ;)

    I just hope they give a free £10 bet to all season ticket holder's or some sort of prize.

    The new kit looks a hell of a lot better on the pitch than it does in the pictures to be fair.

    Struggling to understand the badge being a pocket? SKD will lose it every game.

    The badge is a pocket? What?

    It does look loads better on the pitch. But that may have been coz of the copious amounts of beer I had before the match. We'll see.

    Hi everyone btw!!

    I have to laugh at the fact the 188.bet logo won't be on youth shirts :laugh:

    A ten year old isn't going to put on his Bolton shirt, see the betting company and think, hey i'm going to take up gambling :laugh:

    Spurs have Mansion Casino as our sponsor and we didn't do anything like that.

    The shirt looks quality btw :thumb

    To suggest that it doesn't have an influence on youngsters is rather uneducated. Of course it does. No, a ten year old isn't going to just take up gambling, but if 188bet is our sponser for let's say five years, that 10 year old is now 15, of course he's going to google it. Of course he's going to look it up and read about it. It doesn't mean that he's going to turn into a gambler and live out the rest of his days in Ladbrokes, but it certainly has an influence.

    I've had 19 years of Reebok and between age 7 and 15-16, Reebok was all I really thought about when it came to sportswear, because every Bolton kit I had seen had it in big letters on the front. It certainly will influence the kids, whether it's on the junior kits or not.

    The stadium will still be The Reebok.

    Hello! Where've you been and what gave you the urge to return?

    Thought about the idea of putting a charity or something on the kids shirts (like West Ham) but the club's charity of choice is Derian House which despite being a great charity would be a bit morbid :(
