New Coach?

Post by milesanderson » Sat Jan 12, 2019 7:48 pm

What's with Management keeping on Murphy? get RC back from Edinburgh, a team that continues to impress playing the sort of expansive, imaginative rugby that the Tigers should be playing. It's dismal and it's got everything to do with the head coach!

Overreaction!
You need the proper tools to do a proper job.
Last week Leicester had the proper tools, this week they didn't.
It was worth finding out at this stage, a means to an end!

There won't be anybody better available at least until after the world cup so it's more productice all round to give Geordie his fair shake for now. There are about 10 players we could do with jettisoning though.

Why bring back the coach who was in charge when our present problems started?
Cockerill has improved because we sacked him, he was promoted above his ability with us & the rot started on his watch, we need to look forward not back.
I would of preferred a head coach with no previous connection to Tigers, a new DOR with that criteria is still a possibility.

Do you mean in the sense that they've not appointed anyone yet so they could appoint someone who is not ex-Tigers or that you've heard whispers they we're talking to someone for the DoR post?

Unfortunately as much as I like the guy Murphs just isn't up to it and neither are the BoD.

Long way back to the top now, needs a complete change of culture - or revert back to the old Tigers culture.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

We won't have a DoR whilst Glynn is in his job - his title of Director of Rugby Operations is essentially DoR for the first team and academy combined

A Modest Proposal For Preventing the Tigers of Leicester From Being a Burden to Their Fans or Country, and For Making Them Better at Rugby:

A 14 point, detailed plan for saving Leicester Tigers.

1) Tigers have around 12 fixtures left this season.

2) Tigers should recruit 12 Directors of Rugby and 12 Head Coaches* for the remainder of the season. This will be paid for in hotels.

3) One Director of Rugby and one Head Coach can be assigned at random per remaining fixture.

4) The Director of Rugby job title will be replaced by a new job title of "Cockers".

5) The Head Coach job title will be replaced by a new job title of "Cockers".

6) After each fixture (win or lose), Tigers can sack the Director of Rugby (Cockers) and Head Coach (Cockers) (who were, obviously, lauded the previous week as the saviours of the club, and simultaneously the worst thing to happen to the club) who happened to be in charge that week.

7) After each sacking, ten people chosen at random from each part of the Tigers club, from fans to board of directors, will be chosen to shout "Sack Cockers!" and smear themselves with mud taken from in front of the Crumbie stand. Equally, ten people chosen in a similar manner will shout "Bring back Cockers!" and smear themselves with the same mud.

8) When this is complete, each group will shout "I've been a fan for 40 years and I'm burning my season ticket!" to then be followed by a shout of "True fans don't abandon your team when they're down!".

9) There will then follow a fistfight and name calling to the tune of "Smoke On The Water".

10) Afterwards everyone will call for Martin Johnson to take over the club.

11) After this everyone will call for someone who has ever heard of Tigers, or who can spell the word "Tigers", to take over the club.

12) As the two groups depart, someone chosen from each team must shout invective regarding a member of the board of directors. Board member to be chosen at random (although Ben Kay and Simon Cohen will come up a lot).

13) The return to this call must be uttered as the groups depart by different exits and must be formed of derogatory comments regarding the use of academy players or Gen Glynn.

14) Home for biscuits.

This is bound to work. Everyone gets what they want. (With apologies to Jonathan Swift)

* The suggestion that Tigers also recruit 12 attack/defence/scrum/line out/kicking etc coaches is ludicrous. Let's not take the mickey, eh?

No insight a wish/hope. Personally I think it would prevent Mike Ford getting involved.

Absolutely spot on! And we had the chance too when Cockers then Mauger went. It should have been a fresh pair of eyes coming in not the constant inbreeding.

Thoroughly enjoyed that thank you very much, you don't see many Swift references in the wilds of rugby chat.

Ridiculous suggestion. There is no mud in front of the Crumbie stand which doesn't even exist any more because it's called.......something else, apparently.
