Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

It is quite simple for me and I don't know the answer - if we did sell the club for 60m, what exactly are they buying? The real estate? The shares from various board members? How much of the money goes into the club kitty? What does the"new" board intend to spend the money on if there is money in t...

Re: Guinness threat to London Irish

"...............choose to withdraw sponsorship. That is their right." Of course it is their right, but this is symptomatic of modern society; all that is needed nowadays to ruin someone's reputation is a media indictment. Being tested in a court of law no longer means anything. You have said it you...

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

There are loads of factors but I think that Youngs is a big part of the problem himself, my issue is that he supposed to be an experienced 85 cap England international and is a supposed senior player but doesn’t act like it all anymore, you don’t need quick ball to be a leader. To be clear this is ...

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

Interesting that people don't seem keen to get the best out of England's most capped 9 - but rather simply replace him with an import in the hope it would fix everything. Arguably some might say the unsuccessful mindset has lead to an overly negative view - it's quite obvious given how he plays for ...

Re: Anyone else uneasy?

Cannot see any problem with this award. It recognises a fan that has made a great contribution to rugby be it raising funds for Matt Hampson or other causes. It does not imply that they are any better fan than the rest and just recognising their contribution. This has been happening for years. Nomi...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

It is to the ordinary man in the street, matey. :smt024 :smt024 So your way of ensuring we win more is to not pau our star players more because being a professional Rugby player pays more than the average job in the street? The bloke is by far our best player in the 2018/19 season and Premiership t...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

It's an interesting mindset that suggests we ought to let go our best players who are established international performers for a series of flimsy reasons which quite clearly hold no water rather than improve our support around them to make the most of their ability. Just what do people expect happen...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

Don't like the personality slagging of a player on a supporters forum. It's really cheap. I thought Tigers supporters were better. The player has no right of reply. It's an act of cowardice. Challenge what a player does on the field, whether they are effective in role. But not negative stories abou...

This was raised at the supporters forum and smurf said that they were still negotiating with Manu but tigers could not compete with the French clubs Basically we're trying to get him on reduced terms, and rightfully so. NO marquee player should be from the current England contingent IMO. 20K per ma...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Based on the current squad being at/or very near the salary cap, any further additions would have to be at the expense of someone already within the squad. Leatigaga is going to have to replace one of our current prop contingent, assuming we’d want to keep Genge and Cole, probably Bateman too, plus...

Hopefully he will have flown straight back fro northern Argentina rather than Via Australia which will lessen the jet lag considerably

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part Deux

It makes me laugh, it really does! People just aren't happy with whoever we sign! We are bringing in an injury replacement for Genge, it's not going be a world class prop or a prop good enough to start at other Premiership clubs because if they are starters at other clubs, they will stay at that cl...

Re: Will Evans

Evans needs to do more, start offering the kind of impact on the game of the likes of Ewers or Armand, or Shalk Burger, Michael Rhodes or Jackson Wray. He is a smaller player there is no question about it and that is fine as long as they can do the business and have a positive impact. Teimana Harri...

Roly that is jsut far too short termist - Saracens' players often didn't start as super stars, sure they've signed a lot but guys who make up a lot fot he "bed rock" of that team aren't big names like Burger/Farrell etc but more guys like Wiles and Ellery who can do a very servicable job but certain...
