Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

If the requisite percentage of acceptances is achieved, the buyer will purchase all of the shares and assume sole responsibility for everything to do with the club, all its assets and liabilities, staff, contractual arrangements etc. What they do then is entirely up to them.

Just got the following in an e-mail: Fixture information for the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup will be finalised after the publication of the calendars for Europe’s three professional domestic leagues. We expect that an announcement will be forthcoming in the first ...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

No 1 we would not have finished 11th last season No2 we would not have to pay for a mentor No3 the appointment remains a total gamble Still banging that tired old drum I see. It happened and isn't going to change in the medium term. Any (realistic) ideas on things Tigers might do differently going ...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Incredibly short-sighted. Agreed it was incredibly short-sighted to appoint a totally inexperienced head coach. Ok so let's theoretically go back to last season, one game in and we've just sacked MOC. We've paid to get rid of MOC having not long paid off Hanson, Mauger and Cockerill. We've previous...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

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 they were told by said owner. :smt001 No, forgive my wording. Both teams would NEED primacy of tenure. A requirement of the Premier League and Premier Rugby (a...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

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 could make a quick return selling the land? I don’t think KP will come in for it though. Very, very unlikely to happen, es...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Agreed it was incredibly short-sighted to appoint a totally inexperienced head coach. Please explain why you think it is short sighted? The way I see it is that changing coach after coach over the past few years didn't particularly work very well, and contributed to last seasons relegation struggle...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Bye bye Welford Road though. A price you’d be willing to pay? King Power wouldn't move the Tigers out or Welford Road, unless it was a temporary thing whilst major renovations are made Who says?

So Tigers recruit a head coach then recruit mentors, who are more experienced, to mentor a head coach?

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Why does Murphy need someone to mentor him, you are either good enough or not. Hiring Howard to mentor Murphy is an admission by the board that Murphy is not up to the job, and in my opinion he never will be. More poor decisions by a board of directors who have let the supporters down over the last...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Board must go major change required, so club being sold.......must be a sell out, profiteering, lack of commitment by the Board. Coaches out of their depth, so quality additions appointed.......not more ex Tigers, being done on the cheap. Anyone else bored with the endless negativity :smt015 :smt01...

Re: New Kit

Canterbury is the best kit maker by a country mile, playing kit is great but the training kit is brilliant. Most on here whinged like mad when we had Canterbury though so I don’t think anyone can win!! Well, they did give us “the bib”. And a black stripe. And horizontal pin-stripes. And the orange ...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Tigers is now, since CVC deal debt free, still has loyal support and is a respected brand. A good time for any investor to sale before another miserable season starts to add debt and decrease brand status and value. Clearly the investors have little faith in the prospects for the team and hence the...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Cohen has stated that the sale will help Tigers return to be one of the top teams. Yet in the same interview, he states that as Tigers have always spent up to the salary cap, the sale won't have any effect on the team on the pitch. Things don't add up here... are you familiar with the term: "non se...
