Next Season Tigers in transition

Post by Smurphswillgetya » Thu May 20, 2010 9:07 pm

According to Cocky on Skysports despite Moody, Kay and others leaving Tigers are not a club in transition. Leicester always expect to win. Perfect answer.
Of course this is my own opinion and other posters may have a different perceived factual viewpoint.

Exactly.

Every season is a transition between last season and the next.

And we expect to win in all three.

This is why we KEEP THE FAITH!

In transition is the excuse we quote as we trudge back to the car after an okay win.
Then at the end of the season we look at the table and the boys have transitioned themselves to the top!
It's been a few seasons when this has not been the scenario.
I dread to think what will happen when it's thought we have an "established all conquering team"! :smt039

Noooo the smelly ones also.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

No, the dirty ones to Sarries.. Glaws and Baarth were always OK. Punch up in the front row but then get on with the game. Saints and Swansea the same (going back a bit now). Look at the history, sarries were always mean of spirit. It is no wonder that that particular club was targeted for a takeover by foreigners.

All hail the word of Cockerill! That was a perfect answer on the Rugby Club.
SPIKE

It's not the winning or losing but the taking apart which matters.

I for one am salivating at the thought of Manu and Speedy in the backline.
Me too, especially on the evidence of South Africa game!!!
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

Manu was just immense in the A semi and final. Power and speed, but also a deft touch in ball handling and a decisive and timely fend ( That Noah Cato knows only too well ! ).

And Speedy even unfit was so cool under pressure in defence in those games, and so brave and smart in attempting line breaks I drool at the prospect of him fit in our first team as well.

And, well, 36 will either man up or fade if given a run at centre IMO.

Reasons to be sad at the loss of some great Tigers, but also reasons for hope in the new breed.

We expect to win.

I also expect to see the GP cup hoisted my Smurf next Saturday

O & U !

I think this year has shown the way the game is going,not just Tigers but several are "letting players go".Money is going to be tighter and clubs will have to cut their cloth accordingly.
Clubs are likely to be in a perpetual state of transition,sadly the days of "one club" players may be coming to an end.
Bit like the line from the Godfather,"it's business,nothing personal".
"If you want entertainment, go to the theatre," says Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill. "Rugby players play the game to win.15/1/21.

They haven"t got a chance if Smith is still washing cockerils car. :smt002
