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 :smt015

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

I read with interest that the 'sack everybody' brigade who now have every chance of seeing that happen suddenly appear to be getting cold feet!! The constant remonstrations about the incompetence of the board have now changed to accusations of selling out and profiteering. It's not particularly prof...

Re: England XV v Barbarians

Yet another thread that quickly turns to criticism of anything Tigers related.

I'm quite reassured that the armchair coaches and experts predicted that England would get buried in this game and they were so wrong. Bodes well for the accuracy of their apocalyptic predictions for next season.

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

John, I'd like to congratulate you on your bravery in posing the question as it will inevitably become yet another sack Murphy thread. My view of the season for what it's worth is: By far the worst Tigers team I've seen and it's difficult to find many positives. In my opinion the majority of the pro...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

For me it's about building a 'team' of players that compliment each other and work well together. That is one of the key challenges for the coaching team as recruiting players that work well together is a challenge. Quality individuals of international class are important but don't win games on thei...

Are you ready??

Good interview with Mike Ford on LTTV.

I'm sure all those on here who struggle to see anything positive are readying themselves to read between every line and dismiss this as another disaster for the club.

Looking forward to it :smt015

Re: Ben Youngs

It's just so obvious to me. Any scrum half requires his forwards to be going forward and the ball to be presented quickly and securely. This allows support runners to time their runs and provides a stable platform for box kicking, distribution of quick ball and the opportunity to make a break. Yes s...

Re: New Coach?

Is anyone else bored with this debate again??? :smt015 But here's my twopenneth! I'm assuming Geordie and his coaching team will have their shopping list and that negotiations on player acquisitions are ongoing or in the majority of cases completed. Given the number of players who look to be leaving...

Re: Podcast with Simon Cohen

Not sure why anyone wouldn't want to listen to this or the other podcasts. I think this series is great and gives a real insight into lots of aspects of rugby, not just the Tigers. I'm sure people will want to be synicle about how true it all is buts that's their prerogative. I thought Simon Cohen p...

Re: Sarries being investigated

I find the news emanating from the world of Rugby over the last couple of weeks very depressing. Taking a holistic view whatever happens with the salary cap investigations and the debate over a world nations league the sport looks to be in for significant change, not for the better in my opinion.

Re: Sarries being investigated

The most telling comment by Walkinshaw is that he views breaching the cap in the same category as taking performance enhancing drugs. If that doesn't kick the powers that be into life I doubt anything will.

I'm getting more hopeful that this time it might not go away!

Re: Manu to Racing 92?

So both our first choice centres who cost a fortune and we've struggled to keep on the pitch are off.

Personally I see this as a positive on the assumption the available funds are invested wisely.

Re: Sarries next week

I haven't read the thread to the bitter end but struck me that in two consecutive posts we had: we are 10 years away from catching up with the top clubs and then from another poster: I expect the Tigers to win every game. I am not really sure you can have a sensible conversation when people are pos...
