Re: Finishing this season

Winning is the final result of everything you’ve just mentioned.

How many times have you seen sports teams have the ‘dead cat bounce’ only to be back in the same place six months later.

Re: Finishing this season

We can’t be relegated, we’ll never have a better opportunity give game time to the whole squad including academy graduates. A minimum of 3 starts each for all players (injury depending) should be the target so we never have the ‘he’s inexperienced’ argument. The theory is sound but in reality, no m...

Re: Finishing this season

We have 9 games left and most likely 3 pre season games following this campaign. We can’t be relegated, we’ll never have a better opportunity give game time to the whole squad including academy graduates. A minimum of 3 starts each for all players (injury depending) should be the target so we never ...

Re: New Kit

Couple of comments that were made regarding the ‘change’ jersey made me wonder whether the it would be along the lines of the Diwali jersey the Riders BBall team used. Embracing the diverse culture that Leicester is? “Opens us up to a whole new demographic” ? That’s what they said! Better memory th...

36 was always overrated by Tigers fans. A good player but never enough about him to be an international.
Well he was on a number of occasions so I think that’s the end of that argument :smt002

Bondis doing a great job and its great to have a window into the club at a very difficult time.

Re: 31 redundancies

Totally agree! I noticed yesterday that RFU are cutting 130 jobs from their staff numbers, can’t see the players agreeing to drop their 25k a game to support and reduce the number of redundancies that will cost people their livelihoods and have an impact on the support grassroots clubs get.

These would be the same people that go shopping with their wives and manage to block the whole aisle.
Don’t get me started. Worse than traffic wardens, estate agents and fake vicars.

Re: Steve Borthwick

"If you are not willing to do the hard work that we need at Leicester Tigers then you are not going to be part of this team, our fans expect it, our board expect it, I as coach expect it from myself, my coaches and the players" Music to my ears. It’s well publicised that he gets to know players ins...

I hope nobody buys him a drone!

In all seriousness I don’t think he’s had enough praise. LTTV is giving supporters and insight we’ve never had previously and it’s fantastic!

Re: Steve Borthwick

Well I’m 100% sold, can’t wait for us to get back on the pitch!

Bondi’s been a legend throughout this, creating some great content.

Only thing I didn’t get was why did the camera angle keep changing? :smt005 :smt005

Nothing to worry about, just bring the academy players through over the next three years once they announce a ring fenced premiership :smt002

Go on then, let’s hear how you would gave done it then? Assumptions: - You have no control over production in (I assume) in China. There is a backlog of several months due to “some pandemic”. - You have no control over shipping as this is down the the factory and their logistics partner. Air freigh...

Re: New Kit

I suggest you apply for a job then and take control of the club. I take issue on your claim that air freight levels remain the same. True, pure freight movers are still busy, but the volume just isn’t there at the moment without the extra capacity provided by the scheduled passenger services. Putti...
