Re: Provinces v Clubs

I'm was always interested to know what the english feel about this. Take Munster - Population of approx 1 million , Leinster Population over 2 Million and Ulster maybe 1.5 Million. 3 Provinces competing against Leicester - population of about 140,000 according to wikipedia and other small english c...

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

I went back and did a quick tally of notable signing announcements since 2014 and it turns out roughly two thirds have come after the end of the regular season, mostly in early June, so I guess it is something of a tradition. I'll admit then that I was wrong to jump to panic stations. Also quiet sc...

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

Only two teams have announced more than 5 players. Wasps and Quins of the teams that have announced 5 players Bath, Saints and Worcester Saints announced 1 England sevens and 2 Nat 1 players in that 5. People acting like we are miles behind others in terms of announcements. We are really not. I hop...

Re: Peter Tom article

Ok , I hold my hands up, I am one of the shareholders who voted for the re-election of Peter Tom. This "once great club" became a great club under the chairmanship of Peter Tom. Not all of his (and the Boards) decisions have been right, hindsight tells us that, for me sacking Cocker was a big mista...

It could well be that potential recruits and the club itself are waiting to see what league we are in next season.
No. Tigers generally do this with signings. Our league position is irrelevant.

For me, the Exeter and Newcastle games hold the key. Two wins and we will be flying. One win, obviously against Newcastle, is paramount. Two defeats, then our goose is well and truly cooked!
Why Exeter? I won't be worried if we lose to the best team currently in England.

Cipriani is the "real deal" as the saying goes. Would have loved him here, but that was never going to happen.
As well as Ford or instead of?

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

I’d have thought that was obvious, given we’ve had our worse season in living memory and the players that we’ve got aren’t performing. Fans quite rightly are interested in what sort of quality will be pulling on the shirt next season. I don’t get the loyalty thing. So these players are happy to lea...

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

It's almost beyond a joke now how we've STILL only got one signing confirmed for next season. If the possibility of relegation is a factor then the club should at least have the stones to say so. How many more times?! We are doing right by the players that we have signed. They don't want us to anno...

Re: Mike Ford is joining/WRU block Edwards bid/Glynn getting sacked

Lets just hope it gives us the boost we need to stay up! I don't like it,in fact I hate it,but there already talk of ringfencing being "speeded up" shall we say if we were unfortunate enough to go down. They can't do that you say,can't they? Dont bet against it! Talk from who? Fans of other clubs I...

Re: Still no good news on the injury front

Is this due, I ponder, to the type of fitness programme we use. It's all extremely disconcerting. :smt102 We may as well just say so as it's something else for people to moan about. Even though our training methods were looked into a few seasons ago when we suffered with a long list of injuries and...

Re: next manager

...surprised it took so long for GM to endorse Mike Ford coming on board!! The BoD, as usual taking the cheapest and easiest option and not being afraid to throw people under the bus. The hope that this will arrest the slide and save the club from relegation is once again, a lucky dip, drawn by peo...
