I'm one of those people who always buys merchandise for sports teams, music artists, etc - but unfortunately my recent interactions with the store have left a lot to be desired. Things seem to have gone downhill since Eric went. Prices are sky high as well, although I suppose that's to be expected in modern sport.

I was extremely frustrated when I was told I was unable to buy this season's 50-over shirt shortly after the tournament had ended, because the initial batch had sold out and there had been a FU with Nike, so no more shirts had been ordered. I will always resent not being able to have one of those shirts - I thought they were great. I'm sure Eric would've been able to work his magic and find one hiding in a cupboard somewhere (in fact he's done that for me before when there was a similar situation), but not this time.

Sadly this just re-enforces what most of us know that the Middlesex feel about the "Club Shop" has been taking away.

Correct Kev. Though it was actually given away as a cost saver as part of the 200 grand lump sum deal which has been extended by one year.

Presumably while the Spaniards weigh up the 99+1 profit base in 2020.

Too much was conceded under this deal for too little in return. (Beefy/hdo) The 2015 lump sum being 500 grand with 5% increments since. (MX provide 28/30 days cricket)

Plus during this period, T20 gates have risen (sellouts) since that deal was struck. Surrey/Essex 40 quid on the gate, the others 35 quid.

Less outground matches equals less sales revenue for MX. They have to my knowledge made for MX a net revenue profit after costs were taken out from these games.

In 2015 there were 3 T20' s, now 5 at Lords, This provides MCC with a further seven figure revenue generation x 2 from which we get zilch, as nothing was built into the agreement for that eventuality.

A further oversight, was failing to negotiate a share of drink profits. Well justified I think.

Certainly these failures have contributed to the £ 900,000 grand losses of 2017/18. Not something MX can continue to do. Just plain commonsense.

The shop closure reduced the MX presence bigtime. My information is: that outground shop sales, if there is such a shop. Sales revenues go in the MX bucket.

Elsewhere into the MCC bucket. The online shop sales revenue destination is a question (at the AGM ) for the finance director to indicate who gets the revenues percentage wise.

Taken allround to paraphrase the Dawid Malan quote. ' financially we are just plodding along'.
