Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

I will judge the season at its end not after 80 minutes, where we finish up & how is what this season is about. ... pretty much stating the obvious!! Tantamount to the captain of the Titanic saying.. "we will make a decision of what we will do, should we hit that iceberg".. and his crew screaming "...

Re: PRC Round 2 - Tigers vs Exeter

If Saturday was Phase 1 with large number of youngsters, then I’d like to see a slight shift to Phase 2 whereby we add 2-3 more senior players but retain some youngsters to increase their development. Let’s not go straight to all senior players. Gigena, Kerr, Heyes, Green, Wells, Lewis, Reffell, Bo...

Re: Is this the most complicated forum ever?!

.. just read your feedback from June as I have not monitored this topic as I would have expected a response to have been in the form of a DM. I am aware other clubs in sport use third party platforms but there is no reason you should not be looking at what is out there. You may find that they are mo...

Re: Is this the most complicated forum ever?!

Redstripeman, Apologies but I have not seen your commetnts and agree at times it is difficult to follow a thread. We try our best to keep topics in one thread but there are some which are slightly different and have other discussions. Please send a PM to me if you have any concerns and a response w...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

I think some posters need to look up the definition of shortsighted in relation to business decisions. If anything the appointment of GM was clearly a long term potential opportunity and the provision of a mentor made complete sense (should have been done earlier). I'm not saying the board should h...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

... I am not sure why this has now drifted to the merger of home venue of both clubs if owned by King Power. There is no way King Power would want to remove Tigers from WR as they believe in keeping to the tradition of their acquisition and even though they may have little knowledge of the history o...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Incredibly short-sighted. Agreed it was incredibly short-sighted to appoint a totally inexperienced head coach.

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Please explain why you think it is short sighted? The way I see it is that changing coach after coach over the past few years didn't particularly work very well, and contributed to last seasons relegation struggle, and so retaining some continuity and sticking with a coach already in place and now ...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

... yes, two heads are better than one, but should he not be bouncing ideas off his coaching staff. In football there is a number two, who is the buffer between the players and the manager. Most importantly he is the guy who will help you to straegise and honest enough to let you know when you are w...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

... this would be an excellent opportunity for King Power but probably an acquisition too soon. Since becoming the Head of the group khun Top is heavily involved with the infrastructure of LCFC and doubt he be willing to take his eye off the ball where this is concerned.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Transparency is essential, and perhaps it is, let’s wait and see without prejudging the situation. Any lack of transparency in previous investigations has been down to the RFU / PRL, not the clubs. I am certainly not naive. Many players need help in sorting out their lives after rugby, and most of ...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

... this could potentially be a good move for the club, the possibility of the pressure finally got to the board. There is the chance of a consortium, brought together by a dedicated ex-Tiger who can see the possibility of taking this club to another level. Not sure what the chances of King Power ta...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

I think the question being asked is around the subject of players being encouraged and helped to set up business enterprises to provide them with something after their retirement (which, of course, could be after their next match!). The idea is a good one, and should be followed by other clubs. The...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

Sam, I totally agree with your comments. Murphy was stupid, should have known better and been more disciplined. He has done the club no favours at all, and frustration is no excuse. Players (including he himself) and officials have all shown themselves to be less than competent on occasion, and swe...
