    I cant believe Foran still isn't signed. I thought it was reported he was signed and done.

    We should be trying to keep Farrar as well, one of the best all round utilities we have had for a while

    From memory the reporting on Foran's signing was in The Australian and had quotes from Foran that he was going to sign but nothing formal from the club.

    Foran is a freak. Arguably the strongest guy in our squad at only 19 years of age. He's also one of our quickest. These attributes as well as his skill will only improve as he grows into adulthood.

    Farrar has always shown offensive prowess. He could really excel with Des as his coach. His comments were very pleasing to read and alluded to our successfulness in keeping a stable playing roster for so long.

    Good to read of the satisfaction from our players.  Foran must be the priority.  He'd be crazy to move as our team is developing into winning ways, and isn't winning a GF what it's all about?

    Damn straight !! That Farrar / Bani swap has to be one of the deals of the century, up there with Packer buying/selling Channel 9 to Bondy.

    I think that we should tie up Hodko before Farrar as I am pretty sure that his contract is up at the end of this year.

    Nah, otherwise they'll double their score if an when Foran signs.  They've logged their score and it depreciates for each day the deal isn't clinched for mine, with no returns.

    Both will be at Manly for the long haul.  Who ever leaves who's any good?

    That's an interesting question when you actually sit down and think about it. Who do people rate as the last guy that left Manly that you were disappointed that we didn't/couldn't hang onto. I'm talking NRL only here, not guys who went to ESL. I reckon you'd almost have to go way back to Jack Elsegood or Ian Roberts for mine, but that was around Super League time so it may not have been for want of trying on Manly's part.

    It certainly shows that over the last 10-15 years we've managed to retain the talent that we either groom from juniors or entice from other clubs. Our development and retention committee are doing a good job.

    Ian was on his last legs when he went to the Cows.  Was embroiled in his court case as well as being at the end of his physical powers.  Like Ridge and Carroll when they left.  I never really rated Jack Elsegood.  Flashy, but not excellent.

    A few come to mind as good players but never did anything after they left:

    Ron Gibbs  went to Gold Coast and never did anything except end his career with wests
    Jarrad (Whoever) Hargreaves  got injured at training
    Cutho - hasn't done much hopefully he'll turn it around


    My attitude is this if any of these blokes want to move on - GOOD. Let them.  

    Either sign up or "p" off.  I would sooner have a team of also rans that want to play for Manly than a lot of prima-donnas that are just holding out for more cash.

    These guys have to realise they are not bigger than the team.
