Re: Board of Director changes

.. this could probably be the precursor to the sale of the club!!
The probability is that prior to taking the reigns the new owners have insisted that there was no need for their presence on the new board.!

The 23-year-old has turned out twice for the Bears so far this season, with both appearances coming in the Premiership Cup. Batley can be recalled to Bristol at any time and has also been on ...

Re: Mark Bakewell - gone? (Rumour)

Craig Newby on Twitter: ' Yet again another sacking mid season. This demonstrates the clubs lack of planning and development from the top down. A knee jerk reaction to wall paper over the grand canon cracks that are apparent for all to see but the club themselves.' 'When will this stop and someone ...

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

I think that people posting on this thread should be absolutely certain of their facts before posting, and state their sources, too often it seems that the source for facts is actually another persons post. Our Board have made mistakes in the past, I doubt there is a Board of Directors anywhere in ...

Re: Mark Bakewell - gone? (Rumour)

How is this positive news in anyones eyes beggars belief. Here we are facing a genuine relegation battle where stability at he club apparently matters so much we can't sack Murphy, and now we have an experienced coach leaving under a huge cloud. We then replace him in the interim with another ineff...

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

To suggest that Matt O'Connor is the 'one mistake' - is to take a very big all purpose eraser, to scrub clean the pages, and completely re-write history. [/quote] It was not the only mistake but it was certainly the worst mistake. I sometimes think we underestimate the depth of the damage he did to...

Re: The Premiership is Boring, how to improve it

coaches need to learn they have an obligation to entertain and have the courage to tell their players to keep the ball in hand whenever they can. Japan may have played exciting rugby but they were not in the final, and that is what counts. ... this is a bit of a contradiction!! I am all for reams t...

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

The motive for my post is to point out that the responsibility for the sustained decline lies with the current controlling shareholder and management, and that this can only be reversed if there is root and branch change here. Blaming the various sub standard coaches they have appointed over the pa...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

Murphy is quoted on the BBC as saying: "The manner of the defeat is sickening as this is a very special one this game, which means a lot to myself and a lot of the players." Excuse me for asking, but why not all the players? ... I would suggest that "lot of the players" would be referring to the cu...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

Am I the only one who keeps checking news websites today in the hope that I’ll hear that the coaches have been sacked! And still nothing,.. ... the board will never sack the coaches, it will just confirm what we all know, that they (the Bod) are not fit for purpose!! Geordie is never going to fall ...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

As I said ages ago, we will never progress as long as the Young brothers, Ford father and son and the Tuillagi family cartel who have the ear of Ben Kay are with the club. They wanted Murphy as coach so that they could dictate tactics etc to him as he has never had the strength of will or the coach...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

This from BBC Sport: How the hell can it be possible, with the squad they have, given they are no longer able to use the shared companies scam? Have their stars taken a massive cut in salary?

It’s also a relatively good squad, Cockers could have done wonders with this squad.

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

If KP bought the club, I think you’d find it wouldn’t be too long before a move to the Crisp Bowl is on the cards, and selling the WRd estate for redevelopment. .. are you a board member? This just comes across like the juvenile thoughts of our supposed leaders. If it is just bantz then fair play!!...
