Re: Sarries vs Tigers

Well there you go. Three months with Cockers and Rizzo's gone crook. Going to take Boris a while longer to sort him out properly

Re: MOC to be sacked?

What riles me the most, is the rubbish excreted by the Tigers PR about the supposed recruitment and selection process that produced the appointment of MOC. Now it seems the criteria they based the decision on were: 1. Available 2. Cheap 3. Knows where Leicester is. Sacking Mauger, Cockerill and othe...

Re: Veainu article in the Mercury

When he makes an error, you don't seem him wearing a stupid ear to ear grin. It hurts him, and it shows.
Something that another, probably much more highly paid player, needs to adopt.

Re: Fans forum 13th Feb

The salary cap for playing staff is frequently referred to by Cohen etal to explain recruitment and retention decision making but also to refute suggestions that "off field" developments have an impact on the playing budget. All seems perfectly straightforward and reasonable to me. But how is the bu...

Re: Tigers v Quins

If going by form, Tuilagi should not be selected but as has sadly been the case for the past three seasons in a more general sense, there seems little option but to stick with him in the diminishing and probably deluded hope that he will become a player worthy of the term "Marquee" and his salary. S...

Re: Two more wins this season?

The plane that veered off the runway in Turkey at the weekend is similar to Leicester Tigers. It went off-course and down a steep bank, coming to rest halfway and at risk of plunging down into the waves below. The crew need to be careful because as passengers get out and scramble away, the things go...

Re: Over Reaction to Defeats

This used to be a club that recruited average players and turned them into good ones. And turned good players into excellent ones. This reputation was well deserved and, as a consequence, players were keen to be taken on by the club, especially the forwards. Recently we've had Ellis Genge in this ca...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

:smt046 Matt O'Connor, who seems to possess all the charm of a saltie crocodile, seems unable to organise or coach forwards on the evidence of what my eyes have told me. There used to be a forwards coach, who copped a load of flack and who left early in the season. And what has been done by the club...

Re: Can it get any worse? Yes.

I will be cancelling my season ticket on Tuesday, after many years. I was intending to wait until after 6th January to decide, but after further consideration can't delay any further. It's a shame but life must move on, in a different way.
