    Can our club please sort themselves out. I dont expect to be informed of the ongoing nature of player contract negotiations etc but when we sign a player can we have a little bit of professionalism.

    We have Toovey in the press today saying its a done deal
    We have Perry on facebook etc claiming its not a done deal.

    How about we show outsiders that we have at least some idea of what the **** we are doing!!

    If he has signed, call a press conference and announce it properly, from the CEO's mouth with the player sitting next to him.

    I rekon it has something to do with Foran wanting to tell Des first so they are delaying it. Fu* Des Foran can still tell him to his face and explain but surely the club you are signing for and your mates come first??

    im happy about Foran but concerned about the huge amount of money we used for two players. Im sure we will lose our depth from this.

    I just hope it's not another false report like when the dog left the DT OR SMH had him signed with us only to find out later that he'd signed with the dogs.

    Keep your spine and the depth will sort itself out. Look at the storm as the perfect example. They have lost a heap of players but kept the 1,7 and 9 and they are undefeated. Brett Stewart should be the next player Manly look to re-sign IMO.

    Toovey always speaks his mind so I'm not too worried about that but if Manly have signed Foran then the COO has done his job. Signing up both halves long-term they deserve credit. It doesn't sound as bad as the dog made it out to be.

    Foran has probably told the club he is staying, and probably told Toovs direct. Thats good enough for those blokes. As for Perry, he knows he needs a signature and they probably havent just sorted through the formalities so to him its not a done deal.

    It is a shame as it could have been a great PR opp (look at how the Cronk deal was announced i.e. press conference, positive brand endorsement)

    Lets hope we can still get some decent milage out of this

    The attempt to lure Foz prematurely has backfired on Des face imo.
    The media attention after it was apparent there was an approach way back in 2011, has made things very awkward to negotiate smoothly without creating massive public uproar.
    It was planned to go that way & sometimes when dealing in an underhanded way your hand gets caught in the cookie jar...
    As I see it theses no dampener here & after tieing up the best young halves combo in my lifetime I am stoked.
    Ppl talk about building a team around young guns - well here they are.....enjoy

    I don't think that either Tooves or Perry would have said anything, especially after the recent 'wall of silence', if they weren't quite sure they'd gotten their man and that he and his manager were happy with that information being made public.

    What's the bet the bullbogs came back with an even higher offer which caused shock waves with the manly board.
    Putting negotiations on hold ;)

    Even if it took 50 separate Foran threads to be merged in to one, it's a bloody fine job :)
