Loss of a legend??

The excitement that surrounded Bath rugby with the news that the British & Irish Lions legend 'Sir Ian McGeechan' was coming to the Rec as performance director in June 2010, was filled with hope and expectations. Unfortunately this never lived up to its expectations!
To much confusion he was brought over the head of the current coach, Steve Meehan. Meehan had brought a some silverware back to the Rec in 2008 with the European Challenge cup, and with finishing a close 4th in 2009/10 season the induction of Geech seemed to bring a bright future!! With Geech taking the reigns the following season saw Bath qualify for Europe but finish 5th. At this time it seemed there was a bit of unsettlement in the camp, this was true and it resulted in the loss of Meehan, leaving Geech to take full charge.<br>
What has followed has been a season of disappointments and underperfomance leaving Bath sat in 7th and looking bleak for a European place next season. What on paper looked like a phenomenal squad just hasn't performed and left many fans why??? And we receive no answers only apologies. As a result of the poor campaign it was released that Geech's time at Bath would terminate at the end of this season, pushed or jumped nobody yet knows.
So where now for Bath Rugby, who will now have the task of pulling off the resurrection of a flailing team???
One thing to be learnt is you can buy a reputation but can't buy success!!!!
