Re: Tigers vs Saracens

If you read well then I think you'll see a reference to "up top" by myself long before you decided to jump in. Fish on a hook, maggot bait! Yes, you said SPEED is up top. Nobody (as far as I am aware) said you only do it with your legs. And I don't need to go to specsavers to know that any team wit...

Re: Tigers vs Saracens

I question whether it is an over exaggeration! Did you not see Sarries tries, never mind slowest forwards several of Tigers quicker players were left standing! However all debate aside to rubbish it without any proof to the contrary is arrogant. You're entitled to your opinion, but it's a subject t...

Re: Tigers vs Saracens

Am afraid one of the commentators suggested the Sarries backs were miles sharper than our pedestrian lot. Past sell bye date ---------Harrison J Ford Owen Thompstone ( still think he would make a good back up centre a la Smithy) Smithy---- massively great servant, not fair on him any more.... Jury ...

Re: Tigers vs Saracens

You know there wasn’t a 30% difference and have tried to cloud it. That’s not far off a third so is like saying in a race the Sarries player would be around 30m in front of the Tigers player in a sprint over the pitch length. If you believe that then I feel sorry for you pal. A mere 2% difference i...

Re: Season ticket price increase question

If Tigers returned the management of the Tigers Shop, the bars and the Catering inhouse and for once provided the high standard that some clubs can achieve then that increased income would go along way to assisting the coffers. :smt023 Note :- I say management not the running! I am always wary of a...

Re: Season ticket price increase question

For those getting their knickers in a twist over Tigers' declaration of a £0.8m loss, the old adage turnover is vanity. profit is sanity. cash is reality may be trite and simplistic but it should not be ignored. Nearly everybody seems to have ignored that, despite the stated loss, Tigers have record...

Re: Business question.

JGRIFFIN, "Chiefs have lots of income streams including rich people. Wage bill is kept tight." is that tight as in secret and/or tight as in strict adherence to budget?

Re: Where were you?

I remember a Monday night "A League" game some years ago when the Crumbie and Alliance & Leicester were full and they had to open up the Next stand as an overflow. I cannot remember the crowd number but guess @ 13,000 certainly in my mind more than were there on Saturday v the non compliant selecti...

Re: Missing Players

I believe it is about our confidence as members or supporters but not exclusively. The team's confidence should come with wins but also from the ability of the coaches and their analysis of the opposition. They also need confidence in the selection of their fellow players and the skills set they br...

Re: Missing Players

I didn't say I supported it, simply that it may be a reason why details are withheld. Doesn't it beggar belief that a professional sports team would not prepare in advance for the team it is likely to face well before the announcement of the line up in team sheets? And that the more unknown that li...
