Re: Manu - Sale injury update

I do feel sorry for MT but I feel even more sorry for Stevie-Steve-Stevie straight-talkin, deal-clinchin, say what I like and like what I say, chain-smokin, gum-chewin, gun-totin, no-small-man-complex here, Diamond Geezer. You mean the continually aggravated potato in jeans Steve, "see you in the c...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

It was pretty pathetic pair of yellow cards tbh, almost as daft as one in the Wales v Georgia game. Unfortunately a stamp is a stamp, whether it was just a mediocre attempt or a forceful one. The game really wants to have a look at itself, snidey holding & blocking goes unchallenged, mocking opposi...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Only one game I know. But it is the first time in two / three years that Tigers have looked fitter than the opposition. Almost any opposition. The players actually seemed to be playing 'for' each other. Again, the first time there has been any semblance of 'team' in the last couple of years. Finally...

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

Sorry but I find all this Tigers should hang their heads in shame, a bit over the top. Large portions of the population are struggling to keep their heads above water, many on zero hour contracts with no guarantee of income week to week. Record numbers of families are relying on food banks so their...

Re: A Proper Clear Out

When Geordan took over as Head Coach he had more actual coaching experience than either Dean Richards or Pat Howard when they took charge and they did not turn out too badly. I do not share the view that Geordan was out of his depth, the circumstances he inherited were awful due to previous bad dec...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

I genuinely don't understand what you mean by the sentence 'My issue is with how he was treated - and I don't mean the last couple of weeks'. From your knowledge what has happened to GM that reflects poorly on the people making the decision not to renew the contract that a man in his mid 30s decide...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

I have no issue with Geordan Murphy being removed from the job of DoR and he should never have been offered - and never should have accepted - the HC role. My issue is with how he was treated - and I don't mean the last couple of weeks. As Nick Cain put it in TRP "Geordan was laid out like a lamb t...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

[my bold] That's true but memories last a long time and the redundancy programme - did we really think that was the 'Night of the Long Studs? - will still be very fresh in the memory. Given that he put his head above the parapet for the good of the club when O'Connor left, it would be nice to think...

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

Murphy gone, Bakewell gone, Phil Blake gone, Boris gone, Rob Taylor gone, Dupay (hope spelling is correct) gone, Simon Cohen gone, Jed Glynn gone - but Mike Ford, the Gloria Gaynor of coaches is still hanging in their by the skin of his teeth and clause 6 paragraph seven of his eldest son's contract...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Might be worth taking a few pinches of salt with this Ford-Wales speculation. The journalist lists "a selection of the potential candidates" - i.e. a list of people who might be considered by Wales. No assertion at all that any of them are being considered or would be interested. The final name he ...

Mike Ford mentioned as possible candidate for Wales defence coach position?.. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/rugby/rugby-news/contenders-wales-new-defence-coach-19256550 That might be good news, providing it's full time.
