Well, I don't quite agree with your assessment of the game, although I only rely on the bias old sky etc for that game. Your reasoning for the date if game played is impeccable as ever. However, there is one other solution to not play the game at all. It was just a money spinner for the RFU as I see...

Hope your right Tom Tom, and that all the players reported to be coming are. Maybe though for the sake of encouraging existing season ticket holders to commit for up to three years or to encourage more people to join the season ticket holders ranks, it might be better if the club actually announced ...

I think that might be a fairer reflection on the game Chobbsy, judging by what I heard. They didn't sound overly enamoured by the Barbarians play, too.

Well obviously you have a better view of the game Dave then both Sky and maybe the papers. As Sky certainly made out England's performance to be awful both online and on the programme. Would have to do much better when facing All Blacks etc, although did say ABs had their problems too. I didn't see ...

I don't agree that he couldn't be valuable to us. True, we might have to release someone or play them less but he would be valuable to any premiership club. However, no-one else thinks that way. He would take too much a hole out of salary cap etc. Yet I bet another club would have him and Quins coul...

George at the England v Baa Baas Game

Not sure if any else of you saw but when the presentation of souvenuirs was being made to the Baa Baas, the camera panned down the crowd in that stand, and George was luming large. Don't know how many other of our players were watching but certainly Chutes was there to be seen. I didn't actually see...

The board may well have planned for the next stage in rugby off the pitch. Give them their due, they have always been pretty sharpabout maximising profit off the pitch. However, they haven't keep up with othe clubs on the pitch and are not doing so. And we as certain people have said, very largely g...

Wish I had your confidence in our beloved board, Pete.

I might have renewed my season ticket or got nearer to doing so.

Can the Pests ever be Stopped

Like it or not, the Pests are very good at the playoff system, and that is an understatement. Four times, they have won from not finishing top. They have never been beaten in a playoff final. Although many do agree with playoffs, it is perhaps galling that the Pests have been able to win this so muc...

Well said Penfold. Fully agree. It would be ludicrous for the Board to sack ML at this stage, and the constant negative headlines about him in the papers hasn't helped the team IMO. Also, the stabbing in the back from certain people who should be supporting Marcelo. The Board have not handled this i...

I agree with you Chris Tiger. All we seem to know through other reports is that Toby Flood is definetly coming but nothing announced on the official site. Leicester Mercury seem convinced Dupuy is on his way but again nothing announced on site or elsewhere. We don't even know who the Head Coach will...

Agree about the discipline, Ben Kay is often one of the prime miscreants. The problem is little or nothing is done about it and so time after time stupid penalties are given away. The team didn't perform in the first half, you can't just blame Andy Goode. Andy though does seemed to have lost confide...

I can't stand personal attacks or ridicule by odd people on here. I can't be bothered to argue any more. I do though despair at the majority's or the vocal majority's view on this. I end up banging my head in frustration. Time will tell on this, but I am pretty confident that if we don't at least ad...

Very few have, if any, have actually answered Daily's points abouts no obvious sign of quality backup for Ellis, exposed at 7 - is Woods the answer, and stretched at prop.

No, they would rather hide in their own cloud cuckoo land and think all is great.

Notts lad, you don't know my full reasons, don't make a personal attack like that on me. Don't make assumptions. Cost is not he only reason.I am not hiding behind anything. I am being open. So don't talk rubbish and make stupid assumptions. If anybody's hiding, its people like you who think with the...
