I thought they were just not renewing the sponsorship, so we were safe until 2010, no? :confused:

Anyway, it was always going to happen after the financial trouble that affected them at the end of last year. And after all, it is unnecessary money they would be paying out.

As for other sponsors, there will always be an option for us even in the current financial climate.

Lets be honest,we only care about what it looks like on the shirt :D
It aint what it looks like, its whether the sponsor is a big company or not. When we got AIG, there was uproar cos everyone thought it looked stupid and that they had never heard of the company.

Now it seems sad to be ending the sponsorship with them as got used to them being on the shirt. I dont care really who sponsors us as long as the vast amount of money is used to put players in the shirt they will be on the front of.

Also have people realised as next season will be the final season with AIG. All three kits will be come obsolete after next season. Maybe one/two of them will stay same design and change sponsor but i think it confirms the fact that the 1909 kit will be a one season kit after all.

agreed. although i don't know if the shareholders would agree to that. if its even a possibility, maybe have the charity on the away or 3rd/alternative strip.
What shareholders? The club is owned by Malcolm Glazer, he is the only shareholder.

no didnt go back in time. the shirt from 1909 with the v-stripe is being released as another commemorative shirt which they tend to be one season specials.

confirmed on sky news that AIG are officially pulling out...they are in discussions about the deal...so don't be surprised if we see a new sponsor from next season on the shirts
AIG are some massive Insurance company based in USA, sure they have just asked for a bailout, seen something on the news.
