Re: Andrea Pinchen

I am sure she is very competent but the avalanche of 'non Coaching/Playing' appointments this Summer slightly worries me . We seem to have lost none of the old bureaucrats and gained quite a few more on considerable salaries no doubt . I suspect that those with changed titles/responsibilities will r...

Re: Are we still a family club.

Quite agree - the answer is to vote with our feet .

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

The Club being put up for Sale means just that - not just the shares of Messrs Tom and Scott , but the whole lot . That's why all shareholders got a letter explaining that .

Well , good to hear about Mele coming . Perhaps others think there is something lacking at 9 as well as me .

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

the one position I worry most about is No 9 . Last Season we were very weak there - Youngs hardly played ( when was his last decent game for the Tigers anyway ?) , Harrison just not good enough( kicking is appalling) , I'm not sure that White really made progress , Simmons injured then ignored when ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

i did not advocate dropping Cole for Heyes , but if Heyes is to progress to be a Premiership player he needs more than 2 or 3 minutes at the end of each game .

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

A mentor without any real responsilbility - I'm not sure about that . I'm also not sure about inventing another job for Glyn. There seem to be more Chiefs than Indians at the moment whilst we really need a top drawer Head Coach who can bang a few heads together to sort the mess out .

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

I think Kerr should start as 1st choice Hooker next Season - we need to move on . The same with Hardwick - he needs game time to improve and get experience . For me Heyes is completely unproven at Premiership level - a few brief cameo appearances not all of which have gone well . He needs to start s...

I think you will find that there are other classes of share Capital issued - don't 'count your chickens' yet.

That's right Sam . His speciality is the Scrum - that's not the bit that need sorting .

Re: Preseason fixtures

i think the pre season games will be even more of a farce than usual with RWC players missing and other key players protected from injury . Given the large number of newcomers to our Squad I would select the anticipated starters for our 1st premiership game from pre season game 1 so that at least th...

Re: Wayne Barnes

I suspect that doing Prem games would not be a problem to him , wheras travelling all over the World to do Internationals does involve a lot of time away from job and family . I seem to recall that he is a Lawyer in quite a specialised field so money will not be a problem . He's the best of the bunc...
