Re: Tigers v Chiefs

I'm not confident the current BoD have the capabilities to resolve our issues or have really accepted them.

Re: Clarification please.........and a few thoughts on yesterday

But refereeing to the laws of the game would ruin the 'spectacle'. Tis after all no longer just a game but an 'entertainment'

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

We are in a relegation battle, Mike Ford is a hugely experienced coach available and it would seem he and Geordan are happy working together. What's not to like. I'll take anything that sees us finish above 12th.

Very interesting interview from Burns.

Hats off to the guy, seems a sound bloke who loved playing for the Tigers. Plus he played his best rugby of his career at Welford Road.
For me the moment when the spirit died.

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

I would welcome anyone who can inject some confidence into both coaches and players. If that is an old head for GM to bounce ideas off and get back some validation of approach then great.

What we need at the moment is quiet. Let Geordan get on with the job, ensure continuity, have faith in what we have. It's going to take a few years for us to start to make an impact again. What we don't need is further instability.
I would add the 'instability' of a first rate DOR.

Reported on facebook tiger group that Mike Ford and Geordan were in the local hero together studying over a laptop for some time yesterday and then left together - read into that what you will
We need all the help we can get.

Re: Cockerill - blame the hierarchy

We all know it but of course the BoD have sloping shoulders. Doomed until there is radical change at the very top.

Re: World Rugby planning bring back the ruck + other stuff?

The kick and getting the ball back seems similar to rugby league. Not sure it is a reasonable position. Loosing the 'breakdown' yes please.

"Both MOC and Murhpy have eluded to fitness issues." Would explain our 'kicking to save energy' strategy.

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

What are the chances that 6-8 blokes simultaneously asked for their signing at one of the worlds biggest clubs to be kept under wraps? There's something else going on, of which I can't be alone in suspecting disappointment. Perhaps our current reputation is taking precedence over our previous reput...

Re: Are you watching Bath v Exeter:Geordan?

I don't see anything in Exeter other than the admirable. They are not the finished article, but why would they be with eight seasons of experience in the premiership. It is a remarkable story: 8th, 5th, to three years later Runners Up, Champions, Runners Up, 2018-2019 already in the Play Offs. Winn...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

For a start our CEO can stop blaming our poor performances on GM not having his own squad. Makes it sound like he is incapable of coaching anyone he hasn't personally signed and that the players we have are not wanted. Im sure that makes them committed. Next the BoD can recognise we are in a relegat...
