Re: Season Tickets

I'm saddened that someone's had an experience of bad behaviour in the Crumbie (& that the stewards asked THEM to move, not the perpetrators!). If the OP is still reading, I'll speak up for the old stand: we've been there since we bought our STs, which was ... a long time ago. We sit in amongst suppo...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Moved from another thread: Brinkmanship. If they call the club's bluff, where will they find employment - with better T&Cs than on offer from Tigers - at this time, when most clubs aren't financially secure? One or two might attract offers (how are the French placed?), but many will be seen as littl...

Just in case anybody is missing him: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/rugby-union/2020/05/01/leicester-tigers-carpentry-casuarina-beach-barbarians-sam-harrisons/ There was also a good piece on him in Rugby World recently. He sounds happy. Nice to read he's doing well & was getting a run out on the park ...

Re: Tigers vs Baabaas - 1992

WFH, on some pretty dry old stuff, took a break to visit the forum & found this. 30min out for rugby to put a smile on your face. I'ts so easy to forget the classy players Tigers had then (& the Baa-baas too!). Great break out... now back to work!

Re: Plan to complete premiership season

I rather liked the idea. There's a good chance the beer would be cheaper than at Welford Rd too (& maybe more choice than Tiger)!

Re: Shazzam

Well, he came on for the last five, to much cheering, put in for a scrum (twice) & hoofed the ball out of play to end the game. And he left on the back of a bonus point win. Sentimental at the end? Yes, and I'm glad we're a club, a family club, that can do that - there's still a place for it in what...

Shazzam

Whatever happens on Saturday (& with that 23, in other times I'd expect a bonus point win), it's nice to see Sam in the replacements for the last time.

Whatever the state of the game, I hope Geordie sends him on for at least the last ten minutes, so we can thank him. He's served the Tigers well.

Fixtures calendar 2019-2020

Is anyone else having trouble syncing the e-cal with their calendar? Previous years I've downloaded both home & away without any problem. This time, on clicking "sync with calendar" the screen goes grey - and stays that way. Nothing uploads to my calendar. I'm using a 6yr old 3rd generation iPad. I'...

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...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

I note this has been done after all the ST wheeling & dealing has been concluded. I renewed ours 2nd June but, if I'd known this, would not have. This isn't investment; it's selling Tigers down the river to benefit the pockets of the current majority shareholders, and it STINKS. It signals Tigers j...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

some People on here have gone full OTT mode. To be expected quite really, and until we know more there is nothing but to do but speculate. Neither OTT nor speculation. I retired from a career in business (construction) & know how & why companies are bought & sold. It's not for the benefit of the co...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Mrs G first reaction: won't be Leicester Tigers any more. Minor shareholders? We're they consulted? :smt017 JG, I agree with her. Tigers was a club where non-playing players mixed & chatted with the supporters. We were successful on the pitch & off, but more importantly, there was a "club" atmosphe...

Re: Sir Barnes

Guess he will team up with BT Sport. It would be nice if, similar to Spreaders, he got involved with coaching. Not the laws, but how to manage the players & promote a flowing game. After the number of TMO calls last game, I know one referee who'd benefit from an old hand's wisdom. But one more seas...

Re: Challeng Cup 19/20

God I shed a tear when I look at those group of teams! As in "how are the mighty fallen?", or the perceived 'lower class' of some compared to Tigers' former standing (I've not phrased that well). Well, it'll make a change from seemingly playing Ulster, Munster, Leinster, Racing & Ospreys every seas...
