Re: Manu out for season

Would you not think that the care Manu and Crofty have received has a positive impact on the morale of their colleagues in the expectation that they will be taken care of by the club. In a military situation would the proposal be to shoot the wounded?

Re: Manu out for season

Poor lad probably feels he is cursed and a change of scenery may be what he needs. Whatever he decides I hope he makes a full recovery and can enjoy life once more.

Re: Supporters Forum Meeting?

Call me cynical but if there was anything important to be said it wouldn't be said at a supporters forum. Keep things confidential may be an attempt to cover the lack of a clue.

Re: Departure of Cockerill

Well IF the reports in the press are to believed then two chiefs with markedly differing views and approach was never going to work. Time and results will tell whether AM can bring unity and common purpose to the team. A shame but with the alleged background clearly a change was needed.

Re: Departure of Cockerill

I think that the fault does not lay entirely at the door of Cockers but as an honourable man he has accepted and shouldered the responsibility. I have some sympathy with the view that board members should act similarly.

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Frankly I reckon we'd be a good deal better off if we dispensed with the annual player merry-go-round, stuck with the squad we already have and try to get some consistency and continuity in our play. Otherwise we seem to be forever "bedding in new systems" and "trying to play a different way". Agre...

Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

I think we have already transitioned from champions to mid table also rans. We just need to get used to competing with Glaws, Worcs, Sale and Bris

Re: Is it now time to thank Cockers?

MJ was a legend as a player, but how do you know he can coach? He had some success with a one dimensional approach with England, but that hardly makes him a top class premiership level coach. Tigers need an experienced forwards coach (Blaze moved from player to coach, and the forwards have been det...

Re: Richard Cockerill

Do I expect us to win every game? Of course I do. Is that realistic given our financial model. Almost certainly not. All I expect is that we make the best use of the resources at our disposal and to play like Tigers. I want my grandchildren to be watching Tigers in the future. If that means we don't...
