His gushing remarks make mine look positively mild by comparison, at least I'm not alone in seeing how great this side is growing up to be.

COME ON YOU TIGERRRRRRRRrrrrsssss

I feel this will fuel the doom mingers on this site come next season expecting tigers to win by a huge margin of points each week. We will get sack the coaching staff post every week and little respect for opponents.

Please don't rattle their cages. It's been nice and quiet for a day or two.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

I hope Cockers will do " A Ferguson ". He is the beating heart at the center of our club.

I'd like to see "Johnno" on the board to complete the set.

Subtle, or maybe not so subtle difference/

Crowson speaks of potential and improvement.

You recognise only (past) achievement and deny the need for the latter!

Our oldest player was 29 in Geoff Parling, his comparison with the double European winning side is interesting. Comparing the past with the future expectations, a lot like the statement I made about how great a side we are growing up to be.

Such contradictions!! Our sode has to mature (grow up in your words). And yet it does not have to improve????? And the coaches do not have to manage and nurture such improvement????

Out of your own mouth are your arguments condemned.

So, discuss the improvements needed and what actions the coaches should take to facilitate them,

Not a single improvement required Bill, as I've said elsewhere, we will have half a dozen with Lions experience next year, plus some new players and coach/es(if we do go for a defence coach), evolving and maturing. The perfect Premiership record , nice to add the improbable Heineken Trophy as well, but of course you will have read my comments about how that is out of our(and other English clubs) control, hence the decision to leave an imbalanced circus.

How naive (stupid) can you be,

Even Crowson and Cockers recognise that improvements are needed,

Not TB though!

JG suggested areas in back play where improvements were required. I agree. I also feel our play at the breakdown could improve,

But you? No improvements are requires!! You know better yjsn Crowson, Cockers and everyone else???

Is this the same Bill who constantly asked for Cockers head, Is this the same Bill who confidently predicted we were not good enough to make it out of HC group and who confidently predicted we would not make the play-offs with the then current coaches? Is this the Bill that as soon as we win changes his tune and basks in the reflective glory and now quotes the wise words of Cockers to have a go at TB who at least kept the faith through thick and thin. Just asking :smt039
Of course this is my own opinion and other posters may have a different perceived factual viewpoint.
