Every team has a bogey team, where all of their players attributes, exploit all of the opposing players weaknesses. Where their style of play exposes all the oppositions short comings.
I'm not dwelling on this result too much.
Saracens are good. Very good.
We are a club in a period of change, we are the lowest we've been since relegation.

I used to get upset and annoyed at our performances during Jim's last couple of years, but now I've got my head round the fact we aren't the powerhouse we used to be, the club has reacted and instigated change.. and that now we have admitted there's a problem , we are starting to address it.

Results like this don't bother me as much. It can be the worst European result we've ever had. I don't care. It was always going to be a big ask to change so much so fast in such a short space of time. And again I refer to the fact, they're just our bogey team.

Let's just be happy they're the reigning double European champions. It could be worse. I remember once upon a time London Irish with a certain "Mapletoft" were our bogey team.

We have made big improvements under Gaffney & I believe the team just need our support after this. We know it was bad, they know it was bad. But sh*t happens. I'm confident In the team and the direction Gaffney is taking us.

We will have bad times , but I'm confident we will enjoy the good times again soon. Let's not over react and let's support the lads during this hard rebuilding period. I'll be there for our next home game vs Irish shouting proud & ready to watch us get a nice 5 pointer. !

It might feel like deja vu again tonight, but the futures bright, the futures BG&G.

Well said.
