Re: Saracens lack of fans

According to our website on the fixtures page, yesterday's attendance at Vicarage Road was 7500. In their biggest game of the season that is a poor showing when they reckon all the fans that went to Wembley last season are Sarries supporters I have long suspected that the "London" double ...

Anyone got a web feed? P2P not on and can't find another. If we hold our nerve we can win this.

Re: Ed Milliband

To get back to M Stade's original point... Miliband the younger will have a torrid time because of the puerility of the print and broadcast media who will always try to catch him out a) saying something different from his brother b) saying something different from what he said in the past. This seco...

I'm not sure about "good" but I understand that he is a fundamentalist; ie the world is less than 6000 years old, created in 7 days, Darwin was wrong, Fred Flintstone is a documentary sort of Christian.

Re: Saracens again cross the line

....And not a word about it on their unoffy. All criticism is verboten apparently. What a charming and civilised place Saffas is; they used to be just a dirty team with a terrible ground now they're a boorish (and sinister) dirty team with a terrible ground.

Re: Saracens again cross the line

£10,000 is the maximum fine that ERC can apply. Apparently all the other 13 clubs could make it but Sarries decided that as Borthwick was not on the list of people to be interviewed they'd skip it. If Sarries ever won anything perhaps the sponsor who has shelled out millions could skip that presenta...

Re: Tigers v Leeds Live match discussion: FT: Tigers 48 Leeds 6

ITV4 One hour Bayfield and Doyle. Back basically implied that referee's had a perception of Tiger's pack as dominant and that meant they tended to penalise opposition packs. He was containing himself and was on the point of saying more, I felt, but was shrewd enough not to overtly criticise Mr White...

Re: CYCLISTS Grrrrrrr

As I understand it, when a bus driver indicates that he/she wishes to pull out, then car drivers must let them do so. This change to the highway code was enforced years ago. So I always let buses pull out, yet no one else seems to. Poor behaviour to buses seems particularly bad in Leicester. Waitin...

Re: Attendances

Very much doubt today's attendance was the 17000 touted. A lot of empty areas Quite. Including a very large group of seats in the Cat stand corporate (1880 club) area. Are Tigers losing their (marketing) touch, or is the free beer a bigger draw than the game on the pitch ? :smt017 :smt009 Thank goo...
