The point was that human error can happen when humans perform manual tasks.I've seen all of these before. Surely you can see there's a difference between what is essentially a typo by someone ironing letters onto a top and getting someone's whole name wrong on a big marketing campaign. Closest comparison is probably 'Mike' Smalling!
Just as an aside, I don't know who was responsible, and I'm sure a lesson has been learned, but it does give the impression (rightly or wrongly) that the Women's team is a bit of an afterthought. Especially in the wake of Casey Stoney leaving.
Anyway, the marketing material was posted on Adidas' website, presented by Adidas, and created by Adidas. It was all Adidas. And Adidas knows her name very well, so they made a human error.
There's lots of things to harp on about the club, but they have literally nothing at all to do with this incident.
