Re: "Captain?" Tom Youngs report.

It's possible OTY might not be playing for a couple of weeks but will likely be required to return against stronger opposition which puts the situation into perspective, in which case Harrison should be skipper.

Re: Is it now time to thank the board (and Mauger)?

BFG one persons considered opinion is another persons over reaction. I dare say you'll be saying next that the fans booing and leaving at half time was an over reaction and absolutely nothing to do with Richard Cockerill. They pays their money and are entitled to do as they wish (within reason), it...

Re: "Captain?" Tom Youngs report.

This Tom Youngs bashing started on social media several months ago for the 2 shirt and has not let up since. IMO an agenda has been spun and built up. He is a good player, not perfect but good enough. He wears the arm band because he is one of a few that wears his heart on his sleeve, something clea...

Re: Is it now time to thank the board (and Mauger)?

Quote from the Merc posted on the UnOffy: "It begins to feel like rather than being the problem, Cockerill was holding a broken set-up together while dealing with inadequate coaching resources and whatever else we don't know about." I'd agree with that. I'd also agree with a clearout of first XXIII...

Re: Words to describe tonight's performance

I am particularly saddened with the current situation when I think of the great young local talent forced away from the academy in recent years to make way for the connected few. I recall one back from Melton a couple of years ago who was absolutely superb and would've been a great player with devel...

Re: We need to invest more money in the team!

Isn't this topic a pointless one if I am right in assuming Leicester do spend up to the salary cap!

Re: Words to describe tonight's performance

I really cannot understand it, some players Beatham, Tom Youngs, Luke Hamilton, appeared to be trying so hard, tackling everything but what were others doing. I saw Dan Coles just standing there watching at mauls, most of the team just dont want to play, do they want away, they are too slow, lackin...

Re: Did the Board sack the wrong man?

I understand the sentiment for Cockers. He cares deep down. Mauger does not appear animated or bothered. During half time Tv Shots of the changing room looked more like a waiting room in a doctors surgery. Agree Genge plays with his heart and takes the loss as I'd expect a Tiger to.Best purchase ma...

Re: Youngs brothers

Is it me or are they are problems on the pitch?? Tom no leadership skills and poor throwing in, Tom slow at breakdown getting ball out and poor decision making. I'd say OTY hasn't actually been a front row player for that long when you think about it and he is under pressure, he is captain material...

Re: Glasgow game

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

I'm looking forward to seeing if Glasgow are as good away from home and seeing what Leicester have got to do about it. Not sure I see much sense in that rotation at this stage but more a consequence of poor player management in the last few matches and a need to try and protect certain areas of that...

Re: Are Tigers days as one of rugby's giants coming to and e

What Coley has done and continues to do even more so if you consider all the circumstances deserves more respect. You've actually backed up the point I was making. He has played a lot of hard, top level rugby and will be 30 in May. The guy has been a legend for us, England and the Lions and I am su...

Re: Are Tigers days as one of rugby's giants coming to and e

voice of the crumbie I suspect it will remain so while the attendances and season ticket holder levels remain similar to where they are at present. If, however, attendances drop and ST levels fall the club may finally sit up and take notice and improve things like the catering. I agree with the ass...

Re: Are Tigers days as one of rugby's giants coming to and e

Didn't think much of it myself, especially the wondering how much Coley has got, only an idiot who has no idea what it takes to be a tight head at any level let alone in our current environment would spout that sort of rubbish! The rest is just mildly stating the bleeding obvious! Unnecessary. Slot...
