Ok, Murphy has been a good servant to the club but does he merit being appointed Director of Rugby?
The answer is clearly no!
Agreed under normal circumstances!

Re: Borthwick

Still ironing out details, but borthwick will be head coach under GM as DoR in the very near future - just finalising details of his release from RFU........ Good news and bad news then. Good news that Borthwick is coming in. Not such good news that GM remains as DOR, I really can't see what he has...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I know I always write the same thing. First they steal your words and then they steal their meaning. Otherwise known as PR. Humility and honesty. But as Simon Sinek writes in Start with Why page 67. "If you need to have 'honesty' on your wall to remind you to do it, then you probably have bigger pro...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Raging Bull I don't excuse Cohen from blame, what I do object to is him being targeted solely for blame when others deserve as much or more. And also those on other vehicles who seem to think the name itself justifies the level of harassment he and his family have had. :smt013 :smt013 :smt013 Cohen...

Re: Good Players Made To Look (Less Than) Ordinary

Comments about individual players are all well and good; is there anyone out there who still believes that GM is right for the job? There are those out there that attribute every bad pass, dropped ball and naïve tactic to Cohen! If British Airways planes kept on falling our of the sky, and the rate...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Is making a loss of £1.9 million last year not a fair judgement on whether the CEO is doing a good job? :smt013 The Premiership Clubs may as well pack up and call it a day.....majority of the Premiership Clubs reported losses and Tigers were not the largest. So this is getting clearer. 1) Performan...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Not quite sure why there is such a reluctance to say whether or not the current CEO is doing an excellent, average, or poor job and to explain what POs are being used to come to a determination. We have a DOR who has been responsible for 31 matches. 9 victories, 22 defeats. 4 of 9 victories came in ...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Thanks for all of this. I'm not sure that anyone thus far as addressed the main question. How does one assess the performance of the CEO. Or, obviously given the subtext, the performance of the Leicester Tigers CEO Simon Cohen. I'd just like to know what excellent, average, below average would look ...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Love the spiel. What you are saying is that Peter Tom should have gone years ago......as well as Cohen and Glyn Will be interesting to see if more than 10,000 turn up to watch Pau And I will bet no more than 50 travel to Pau Last time we played there, there were circa 3000 Tigers supporters. How th...

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

There must be lots of supporters who have worked for a variety of business organisations - small, medium, large - simple, complex - local, national, international, multinational etc. I'd love to know how the CEO's performance was measured. How to assess whether a CEO is your 'ace in the deck', 'driv...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

Well, I have no longer have any idea what even mediocre performance looks like. Never mind excellent. Murphy has been in charge for 31 games, W9, L22. 4 of the 9 victories came in his first 7 matches. Tigers have won 3 of the last 16, 5 of the last 24. Meaning Tigers were relatively more successful,...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I genuinely feel for the Sarries' supporters - rugby fans like the rest of us - but I'm really not enjoying this game. I'm watching a club that's cheated - and is still cheating. A shamed club that's going to appeal with players who expect us to believe they didn't know. I'm not sure about the 'I f...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I'm think of booking Will Fraser who runs the 'Saracens Way' Organisational leadership programme to give a seminar at my company. Although the company I started a decade or, has made a post tax profit every year, and employs a handful of people, I'm always keen to learn. Referrals on the Saracens we...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

I'll just chuck a couple of tweets in... Guy Mercer: "For what it’s worth I disagree with the cap. If an owner wants to pay people let them pay. Risk for players is huge & people should earn as much as possible while they can. The cap squeezes the middle out of squads so teams load up on low paid k...
