The missing link

I've been watching our results lately and am finding it hard to see why the club I love seems to be slipping further & further into the abyss. I know we have a small squad and money is tight etc but something just doesn't feel right. I found this article from 2012 and some facts seem quite similar as if history was repeating itself. Just wondered what other peoples thoughts on this were


But McGeechan, a former Scotland international who played 32 times for his country and coached the side to a Grand Slam in 1990, has struggled to re-establish Bath as a force in the Premiership, with the side losing 11 of their 19 league games so far this season.

Their Heineken Cup campaign ended in failure, with just two wins leaving them third in Pool Three.

And the Bath director recently publically apologised to fans after watching his side go down 26-6 to Northampton in the Premiership.

That result left the club four points adrift of Gloucester, who currently lie sixth in the Premiership - and in the final Heineken Cup qualifying position

Not comparable in my view. Geech's role with us is as a figurehead and to try to develop the Yorkshire vision. He is a long way removed from on-field activities, as I understand it.

If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

I'm with Albert on this. Geech is now working with the Academy.
