    I never referred to Thomond Park as a liability. I referred to the large debt that the current administration have consistantly failed to service over a number of years. Apart from the 10 year ticket money there has been very little money paid off that loan. I also referred to being able to manage a budget properly which given the operating loss of circa 1 million euro last year is a pressing matter.

    I would suggest you have a look at the track record of Sears before dismissing him so easily. Also Humphreys is not CEO, that is Shane Logan who has an excellent commerical background to assist Humphreys on the business side of things.

      does that make him twice as good as his Munster counterpart given the million euro loss? :-)

        The deficit was €658,000, not €1million.

        At least Munster has something to show for its investment. Connaght doesn't.

        So much for Sears though.

            It will come as an almighty shock to Andrew Thompson that he is a former Shannon Forward.

              Shure, back when Shannon were any good, they never had backs, only 6 skinnier, faster forwards and a kicker. ;)

                Andrew was more than a kicker to be fair, though he was an excellent kicker. A handy fullback/winger in John Lacey, John O'Neill, Brian Roche, Billy O'Shea, Pat Murray- an excellent and much much underated fullback and sometimes centre. Jim Galvin, Alan McGrath, Rhys Ellison, Paul McMahon- ... not bad for backs to be fair...Ellison and McMahon were an excellent centre partnership, pity that Paul finished too soon due to injury.
