Re: Use of Stub Hub ended!

My Stub Hub experience was excellent no complaints. I would suggest that it was such a success that Tigers think they can earn more by not splitting with Stub Hub. That may be true but they need to have a very good system in place or else they will drive touts for the handful of sell-out games we wi...

Re: Cockerill's message to us

The main issue with injuries starts pre-season with a ridiculous training structure based around smashing the ball up the pitch. This has culminated in the past 2 seasons of an unprecedented amount of serious injuries the players carry before the season has even started. That has been Cockerill's g...

Re: The salary cap breachers final

Of course, there will be many saying "if you can't beat them join them" but in Tiger's case that will not be possible. As a PLC they have governance responsibilities which means that, even if they wanted to break the cap let alone had the ability, they could not. I don't believe any action will be t...

Re: Cockerill's message to us

I have to agree with Big Dai and GS who both say we cannot keep making excuses around injuries. 1season is bad luck but 2 comes down to bad management and that ultimately sits with the DOR. How as DOR can come out say 'we must evolve' is beyond me. What has he been doing while being in charge? Evolu...

Re: Manu Tuilagi - out of the World Cup...?

A disaster both personally and professionally. As well as getting himself fit he needs to focus on behaviour rehabilitation but, given that Freddie is is agent, I am not sure that he has the right support structure around him. Hopefully Tigers will be able to offer support around behaviour.

Re: Saracens v Tigers

I am a shareholder in the club (as are many posters on this forum) and also a long-term season ticket holder so I don't accept the criticism of disloyal etc that will come from this post. I am sorry but professional rugby is now a serious business and needs to be treated as such - people have to be ...

Re: matera in a fight!!!

"until recently played for Leicester Tigers". I knew he had been injured but hadn't realised that he had left. Another international class player who has left or is leaving the club!

Re: Times Up!

Ellis 9 - "What does Martin Johnson have to show that he is good enough for the job. He is a Tigers legend but that doesn't mean he is the answer. It didn't go too well with England did it?" Errr? 2 6N championships as opposed to 0 by Lancaster and also a better win rate! You miss the point about DO...

Re: Times Up!

I agree that the board have to take responsibility and, as I mentioned in the original post, I believe Simon Cohen has to consider his position. He is the link between the board and the playing side. He should have also recognised Cockerill's weaknesses and looked to mitigate. However, there is no g...

Re: Times Up!

Times up - the moaning minnies should go and support teams that play the way they want. I too like some have supported the Tigers for over 40 years but am not about to start moaning everytime we lose. Some people only come on here when we lose a game or a player and even moan when we win. I hate us...

Times Up!

It has been mentioned on numerous posts and caused huge angst amongst supporters but time is now up on Director of Rugby, Richard Cockerill. He has overseen the steady decline of a great and leading rugby club which has always been innovative. This evening's game demonstrated the lack of imagination...

Re: Sack the DOR

Well, as a season ticket holder for over 2o years since I stopped playing I am not ashamed to say that Cockerill has been appalling! We have gone backwards yet we have players who, on paper, are man to man as good as any in the premiership. Tigers don't seem to have a vision on how they should play ...

Re: Tigers V Wasps, Post match.

There was a fantastic interview with Richard Cockerill on Radio Leicester after the game. He basically said that some individuals need to take a look at themselves as they are not turning up. This also backs up what Thorn said about some players after the Scarlets game where some players went missi...

Re: The new signing so far. (the ones that have played)

Don't blame Burns for KO's, Flood and Williams did exactly the same last season. I believe that this what they are told to do. Can't understand why but then I cannot understand some of the tactics that a team of talent are asked to deploy!

I concur with everything that has been said. Also, by all accounts he is true gent of the field. A true, loyal Tiger.
