The players have lost confidence in the coaches and themselves. The supporters have lost confidence in the players and the board. The board have lost the ability to communicate with the supporters assuming they ever had it since Leon passed away. The last CEO lost the plot, the new CEO has received a poisoned chalice. The sacking of Jim was inevitable, though sad, because he failed to identiify the problems and act upon them eighteen months ago. Some senior players are failing to assume their responsibilities. Junior players are not getting the opportunities they deserve. The interim head coach has already adopted a bunker mentality...'no, I don't know when Broussow is arriving..'.
In short we have become a laughing stock in the Premiership and in Europe, the white flags have been raised. Commentators and pundits are feeling sorry for us and as Dave Ward said yesterday, Saints are wounded and we went for the jugular. Every team facing Saints for the remainder of the season knows that we are there for the taking, we can be bullied, hit them hard, get into their faces, wind them up and Saints cannot respond. London Irish, Wuss and Sale may not have the 'stars' on parade but some passion and guts can work wonders. Sure, the teams in the bottom two places lost yesterday but both achieved bonus points and Wuss, bless them, put four tries on Sarries at AP.

Oh well, Wandies kick off in four hours, time to get the scarf out !

Nicely summarised. Hopefully, nearly everyone who posts or reads this forum is now thinking "we're in a relegation scrap". The other two getting bonus points is bad for us as we can't even seem to get them. The game v Irish at home is likely to be massive the way things are going. Irish motivation may be starting to pick up. They must be thinking "hey, we can catch these guys", and they can, they might.
