Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Dull old game but a win is a win. The most frustrating part for me is the utter failure of the lineout. This is a recurring issue, and it does not matter who the hooker is. Yes it is better when OTY is playing but even then below par. It cannot be rocket science to sort this out, but nonetheless we ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

In my opinion, Itoje, the Vunipolas, Ashton, Wigglesworth, Farrell and any other players who accepted side deals that benefited them financially should also be sanctioned. It is obvious to anyone with more than average intelligence that these deals were nothing less than bungs. They knew exactly wha...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

The fundamental point here, and the underlying reason why Sarries and I suspect others are on shaky ground is that there is no requirement to run with a sustainable business model. The likes of Wray just get out their cheque books and write off dept. This means there is no need to run the club in a ...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Murphy having a barney with the crowd on the terrace [/quote If he is getting heckled by the crowd it is nothing more than he deserves. If he had an ounce of honour he would have stood down long ago. :censored: clueless again, 40 minutes of decent rugby, then back to the usual dross. Missed line ou...

Re: Falling crowds

If there were 15k+ there Saturday, I will eat my hat. If you add season tickets plus others bought for the game then that may have been 15k, but my seat is surrounded by other season ticket holders, and many were not there. I sit opposite the Crumbie, and there was about a third of the numbers in th...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

More dross, and there is nobody to blame but the head coach. Utter rubbish being served up yet again. These are quality players but they are being led by a donkey. Murphy has to go, he has done exactly nothing in his tenure as head coach, not a surprise really as he did nothing as an acting head coa...

Re: Borthwick

Ok, Murphy has been a good servant to the club but does he merit being appointed Director of Rugby? The answer is clearly no! Clearly not, this is a results based business, and on that measure he should be jettisoned asap. In fact he should never have been appointed in the first place following his...

Re: Wuss safe - it's Tigers or Falcons

Shamefully performances all round, players: not enough gumption bar one or two exceptions, coaching: no bleeding idea, BoD: ultimately responsible and the lot of them should tender their resignations forthwith.

Re: Peter Tom article

Ultimately Peter Tom the person responsible for this debacle is you, not the players, not the HC not the man who cuts the grass, it is you. If you had a shread of decency you would have sacked yourself by now. This is a results led business and the results have been declining year on year for five y...

And that is if we are lucky, I fear even this is over optimistic.

You need a magician to pull rabbits out of hats, and sadly GM is no Paul Daniels. You're going to like it, not a lot! :smt048

Re: Tigers v Saints

Cooled down a bit this morning after sitting through that last night. I do not doubt the players desire to win, or question their work ethic, but it is woe fully obvious that the coaching is substandard. The squad are not bad players, several are world class and would be the envy of most clubs. So, ...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

Did not bother watching game on tv, weather far too nice to be inside. Anyway, clear I missed nothing, said to family I expected a loss and right I was. GM - no :censored: idea, BOD - no :censored: idea, players - no :censored: idea.

Nothing more to say.

Re: Hé hasn’t exactly got the best squad . . . . .

We will not win at Wuss I am afraid, they will have a near full first team out at home, and we will have the same bunch (less Cole and Holmes) we had out yesterday. We will be lucky to come away with a LBP. As for the pests, a 5 pointer away at Bristol yesterday suggests they have turned a corner, w...

Re: Hé hasn’t exactly got the best squad . . . . .

A clear out might not solve it immediately but it does not mean it should not happen. In business if you fail year after year, and performance slips and slides backwards, with no plan to put things right, then those at the top have to go. This lot have presided over a decline that has been going on ...
