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 ...

Not sure the officers that are frustrated by the Kitbag/Fanatics contract were actually in situ when the contract was signed and agreed.
And was that not the same contract that gave us Canterbury, who many apparently wish to see provide our kit again, in the first place?

Re: New Kit

Shorter season for 2019/20. World cup and new kit to boot. The life span of this seasons kit is therefore short. As already stated, surly sponsorships should have been sorted earlier and therefore new seasons kit rolled out. I’m sure the sponsorship deals were sorted months ago. Hence (IMHO), with ...

Re: Steve Booth

Very sad news. An electric player and much more successful than other, better known, league converts.

RIP.

Re: New Kit

With the announcement of H&B continuing as main sponsor, I wonder if we won’t have long to wait. :smt001

Re: New Kit

I suspect the release date will be very close to when it is first worn on the pitch - Premiership 7s? When we had Canterbury they were organised enough to do it “football style”, releasing the kit in time to be worn for the final match (or two) of the previous season (as we did when we swapped from ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

Sam Grahamslaw confirmed to be joining a Scottish club as a stage three SRU academy player. Glasgow have announced their academy players for next season so seems likely to be linking up with Cockers at Edinburgh. It's a shame he's left Tigers but I hope he fulfills his talent and plays for Scotland...

Re: Kiwi hypocrites strike again!

Ritualistic or not, I still think it’s disrespectful. It’s all ridiculous. It’s been nothing more than an advert for NZ’s sponsors for a decade or more; oddly tied in with fines for teams “disrespecting” the spectacle(/advert/joke). It’s been turned into nothing more than an over choreographed bori...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Very, very unlikely to happen, especially as City are now in the Premier League. Both teams would want primacy of tenure, which is why it failed last time. But that was a completely different scenario. In this hypothetical situation of both teams being owned by one owner, I think they'd do what the...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Because people that rich don't buy a sports club to make a quick buck on land. Because people that rich don't think as short term as you. People who are already worth hundreds of millions or billions don't think about making a few million. They think about doubling their wealth. They think about le...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

King Power wouldn't move the Tigers out or Welford Road, unless it was a temporary thing whilst major renovations are made Who says? It was on the cards 15 years ago and why would a sole owner want to have to maintain two similar capacity stadiums within a few hundred metres of each other when they...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

KING POWER anyone? The owner could then mirror Bristol and become Sport Leicester.Stephen Lansdown is Mr Bristol. This could in my opinion be a better outcome for Tigers. The devil you know and all that...... :smt007 Bye bye Welford Road though. A price you’d be willing to pay? King Power wouldn't ...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Whilst agreeing that Peter Tom is knocking on a bit, he is even older than me, I am not sure what relevance that has to his ability to run the club, young people are capable of cock-ups as well. I think the relevance may be more in his willingness to remain doing the job, travelling etc, as opposed...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

The salary cap will go up,in fact it will go one day. Good point cagey. The salary cap will be gone by the end of next season. Saracens will destroy it, either by being allowed to continue what they are allegedly doing now "outside of the cap" (property/investments/business etc) or by being told he...
