    Great. Can't wait to hear who our sock heal and shorts zip sponsors are.

    Which way round ? I'd heard pornhub were in the frame for zip sponsor.

    Considering there was an image pre-season with the logo on the sleeve, I wonder what the delay in announcing this was...?

    Can only imagine there was some hurdles to jump through with they authorities regarding having a currency promoted on the shirt?

    Does the modern football short have a zip?

    Perfect for Watford. Very volatile and liable to drop like a stone.

    Plausable considering the ******* wearing them. On and off the pitch.

    Waiting to install Quique. Much better suited as the face of the club, not to mention the extra publicity generated by a new manager coming in.

    I think there is a haulage company called "TROY FOODS". Can we not use that somewhere on the kit too?

    I love this. I honestly believe given time that crypto is the future of how we transact. Current currencies will feel like teletext before the internet landed.

    This is purely an exercise in awareness and that can’t be a bad thing (unless someone shoves their entire life savings in at the top of the market because they saw it on a Watford shirt).

    If it means more cash coming in for the club then I don’t care what our sponsors are. This is a very smart move from the club and I would hazard a guess that Bitcoin are paying a handsome amount.

    Bitcoin isn’t a company or an entity that can sponsor anything.

    I wonder what the deal is with Bitcoin?

    Yep, as I was told by others (probably you!) earlier this summer.

    I don’t really understand cryptocurrencies. At a guess, I would say that the sleeve sponsor has been facilitated by the company on the front of the shirt and any money we are getting for the Bitcoin logo is built into the main sponsor deal. I remember the rumours in the summer that that deal was far higher than previous sponsors.

    I don't think you need to guess - the article on the official site says it's sportsbet.io's initiative. No idea why they've waited until now to do it.

    Can only think the PL must have been dubious.

    Can you imagine Man City running around with Dubai Dirhams plastered all over their sleeve?

    Advertising currency on your sleeve is a bit strange.

    They can't have been that dubious - all of the player videos for Sky/BT etc featured the shirts with the Bitcoin logo on the sleeve - and these were filmed before the season started. They must have approved it before allowing the logo to feature in the filming. But it's still a mystery to me why it wasn't made official until 5 games into the season.

    This is sportsbet.io promoting awareness of Bitcoin as it’s the currency needed to bet on their site

    As others have said, Bitcoin itself is not a company and therefore cannot be a ‘sponsor’

    ITK m8. Can’t say anymore than that.
    Anyway, back to filming some tricky scenes with Mia.

    She only made porn for 3 months apparently. She's still a top ranking search in certain sites though.

    As usual, I don't get it.
