Re: New Kit

Canterbury is the best kit maker by a country mile, playing kit is great but the training kit is brilliant. Most on here whinged like mad when we had Canterbury though so I don’t think anyone can win!! Well, they did give us “the bib”. And a black stripe. And horizontal pin-stripes. And the orange ...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Tigers is now, since CVC deal debt free, still has loyal support and is a respected brand. A good time for any investor to sale before another miserable season starts to add debt and decrease brand status and value. Clearly the investors have little faith in the prospects for the team and hence the...

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

Cohen has stated that the sale will help Tigers return to be one of the top teams. Yet in the same interview, he states that as Tigers have always spent up to the salary cap, the sale won't have any effect on the team on the pitch. Things don't add up here... are you familiar with the term: "non se...

Re: Challenge Cup 19/20

:smt003 And obviously, winning it gets you into the Heineken the year after. But Tigers won't need that. We'll qualify automatically via the league. Maybe even as champions :smt002 :smt003 Now we know where Ellis9 went to ? :smt003 He/she wouldn't have put the smilies at the end :smt023

Re: Guinness threat to London Irish

"...............choose to withdraw sponsorship. That is their right." Of course it is their right, but this is symptomatic of modern society; all that is needed nowadays to ruin someone's reputation is a media indictment. Being tested in a court of law no longer means anything. You have said it you...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

There is a lot to be learned from a player like AWJ. He is far from being the most talented player that you'll ever see but neither was Johnson and it's said that he was a great leader and presence to have. Could be the kind of presence and attitude that has been missing since the undermining of Co...

Re: France - end of season round up.

Many thanks for keeping us updated Robespierre :smt023 While it's fairly easy to keep up with the goings on in the Celtic League in its various guises, the Top14 is a pig if you hate Sky (I'm willing to be informed differently :smt003) and won't pay for Sky Sports. Its nice to know who might be comi...

If if's and ands Except when it comes to recruiting ex-Tigers, which is always negative in your view. I'm more than happy for you to have this view and express it on here.

Re: David Mele to return to Tigers?

3. He was only here for 2 seasons 4. If we rule out every player or coach with a previous connection to Tigers, how many would that rule out? A large number. Its should only ever be about the very best candidate for the job and nothing else. Sadly the opposite is true when it comes to coaching appo...

Re: David Mele to return to Tigers?

So whats the big gain? Big gain is he could be another highly regarded coach like Gustard. You don’t know until you see his work. Just maybe he’ll show an aptitude for coaching whilst with the academy, that can then transition to seniors. If if's and ands Except when it comes to recruiting ex-Tiger...
