New Tigers podcast

Post by sammy » Thu Mar 30, 2017 12:36 pm

Hi guys - long time forum member but I haven't posted properly in ages. I'm a season ticket holder and lifelong Tigers fan .

I now work on the Leicester Mercury's website and I want to flag the new podcast with rugby writers Paul Jones and Martin Crowson. It's a good listen.

While I'm here if anyone's got any suggestions or comments about our coverage give me a shout - always open to ideas.

Hi Sammy. I remember you posting here in ye olde days.

Looking forward to listening to this. I've felt we've needed a good independent podcast since the Crumbie Podcast ceased to be. Plus what Crowson doesn't know about the club isn't worth knowing anyway.

Thanks for the 'heads up' Sammy.

Yes - just listened to it - enjoyed it. Hopefully, the guys will not be averse to sharing opinions, rumours and controversies surrounding both players and management. Imperative imho that they do not become unofficial mouthpieces for the Club!

I used to listen to it every week but I think it becomes samey. I'd like to hear the players talk in more general rather just trotting it "we need to put in a performance on Saturday". England rugby do some fun quizzes or double act discussions, etc. Also would be good to hear from people behind the scenes. How about getting in the people who run the bars! I just think a bit more imagination is required.

Slater of the current playing group is always a great guest.

Chuter is one of the better ex-players.

This isn't the same podcast as the Radio Leicester ones.

Oh right. In which case I might give it a listen.

I've tried the eggchasers podcast and the Flats and Shanks one. TBH, a lot of the stuff is pretty boring.

I can't get on with the Mercury website. Too many pop ups, despite how I change my iPhone settings.
I also get lots of articles "greyed out" unless I complete a survey.
As for the Merc's imbalance on the fans' view of the Matt O Connor signing...
