Re: Leicester Tigers - Arsenal of rugby

Deary me! I'm am telling you that things are not straight forward. You say they are but I'm telling you that they are not. I can not say it more plainly than that. If you don't understand then there's no more I can do! Sorry, I do not know if you are in a position at the club to know that or are ju...

Re: Tigers v Racing 92

Bateman is the replacement hooker is he not? What is this talk of Genge as replacement hooker? Just because he is number 16? Good god! The number in the back is irrelevant! Don't you watch the games? It is relevant to position and also to the commentators. Occasionally they are ignored but most of ...

Re: Leicester Tigers - Arsenal of rugby

[quote="ellis9"]We have always had strength in depth but then people moaned we should have less players, bring in high profile players and pay them more and use academy players as back up. As I say, you just can't win! Maybe we had a number 8 lined up who let us down at the last minute and then beca...

Its not about signing superstars but more having good depth in each position. We have no number 8 never mind a backup.

Re: Leicester Tigers - Arsenal of rugby

I mean a difference might be that Cockerill won the premiership 10 years more recently than Wenger (who last won in 03/04), that Cockerill has won the premiership twice and been a finalist twice in the past 7 seasons (whereas Wenger hasn't come close), and that the club has undergone major transiti...

Re: Leicester Tigers - Arsenal of rugby

It's a business, they have to make money otherwise Leicester Tigers will no longer be here! Why is that so hard to understand?! Do you sit/stand there looking at a new stand? How weird! The purpose is to get more people in the stadium to make more money to improve the club. The club spend up to the...

Re: Leicester Tigers - Arsenal of rugby

Financially solid. All the money in the infrastructure and not players. Risk averse and happy to just balance the books and don't care about trophies. Forgot it's an entertainment business and people pay to watch a product not admire the new stand. Cockers is the new Arsene Wenger, failure for year...

Re: One question

No idea - we lack ball carriers, Pearce in particular gave us that. And don't forget we got rid of another more than decent No. 8 the year before - yes the one that keeps on scoring and making the hard yards for Exeter! TTTE is notorious with Chiefs fans for NOT making the hard yards, largely finis...

Player abuse by fans!

Having born witness to a Tigers fan throwing their ticket at a Tigers player after the Glasgow game while shouting something on the lines of I'v spent £600 this weekend to see this. I was wondering how the forum would react to this. Clearly a fan that travels to away games he is presumably a keen su...

You say Deans did a good job until O'Connor. Could he not handle this one player? That's pretty poor is it not?

What experience of English Premiership Rugby does Deans have?

I may be Cockerill. I may not be.
O.K then are you the first syllable? :smt043

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

The coaching team choose who get contracts. It's not just the coaching team that deal with contracts. Simon Cohen has a large part to play and values the financial side over what is good for the playing side and frankly it stinks. I know for a fact that Laurence Pearce was told by the club that a c...
