Its a blow, but its not season ending, the team is still more than capable of making the 8.
And if we make the 8 with a firing stewart back in the team we can still go back to back
I voted 5th. It seemed to best sum up my stunned confusion.
I'm not quite shattered, more gutted. 5th seems the best summation, although I think it will be more like 6th, 7th or 8th in all probability (I'd take 5th with glee at the moment).
Not an ideal situation but the season is not without hope, it all depends on whether the rest of the squad decides to cowboy up and get on with the job at hand. The next week or two will indicate whether we will continue to make progress or whether the guys have subconciously put this season in the too hard basket. A few underperformers need to take up some slack and make up for Brett's loss.
Shattered and lucky to finish 7th or 8th but having him back for the finals will help
How am I feeling? Pretty bloody gutted.
We can't win the comp. That's not a good feeling.
good as time as any to prove this team is not a 1 man army.
Do we want to end up like Sharks? Hell No!
There are still plenty of stars... if they want to use this as an excuse to lie down no one is going to be able to stop them.
On the other hand its also excellent motivation.
Having mourned the loss, am now excited to see whether the team can turn the stats into lies. I think they may be able to do just that, especially if Des tries keeping Robbo on the wing.
A lot better than if he was gone for the season...
yeah true too
This sounds terrible, but at least it is from injury rather than being stood down by a bunch of spineless pricks. In think this may have an enormous effect on the team psyche.
Shattered easily. Bookies have us out to $9.00 (NSW TAB).
Courier Mail reports the following
When he plays we win 71% of games
When he doesn't we win 31% of games
4 wins form the next 12 would see us lucky to be about 14th or 15th and I reckon NO CHANCE of the top 8.
IÂ hope I am proven wrong and that "one man does not make a team"
Without this injury we would have been without Stewart for the 3 origin matches anyway.
A lot of sporting results depend on psychology. The Manly club and fans need to remain positive this season. If the club and fans believe hyped press and statistics, then we're digging our own grave.
It's time to stop listening to others and to start believing that Manly is not a one man team. If the Manly boys read these posts they'll see that their own fans are condemning their season. This will be bad for their psyche. Post positive and fire the boys up.
If we cant scrape into the finals we dont deserve it simple as that, from there with last years form, no one can touch us. We will be ok, but pressure is on others to perform.
Shattered, it was like a death in the family
WellÂ a minor one such as the Goldfish, Turtle or Axalottle.
I was once married to an axalottle and I was extremely devastated when he died. Police interviewed the goldfish and declared suspicious circumstances. Something fishy went down that night and what's worse - I then had to resort to the fruit bowl.
You are a sad case Nicci! (Did you flush him down the loo?)
After one last pash.
