    Hi Sea Eagles Supporters,

    I am 30 plus year supporter of Manly. I would like to hear fellow supporters thoughts on the current state of play at the club. I dont want to sound negative as it is only round 1, however I must say that there are some worrying signs. Firstly, why did Manly sign Nate Myles? Was it done to secure Cherry-Evans? Because outside of that outstanding QLD side, he has not been a terribly successful club player. Secondly, why were Koroisau and Lussick brought in? The former did not assert himself greatly at either the Rabbitohs or the Panthers, with the latter being ill disciplined and lacking a real work ethic. Thirdly, Why is Tom Symonds not the starting 1st grade lock? and what could possibly have possessed Manly to release Peta Hiku? I am confused. I also believe that Jamie Lyon needs to put the team first, and move into the halves.

    It seems that there is no real 'maroon and white' left at Manly these days. I saw John Cartwright on Fox Sports and while it was just on his part, he did say that he still 'has an eye on Penrith'. Again not a huge issue, however did any of us ever hear Hasler say that he still had an eye on the Panthers where he started? Or David Penna saying that he still had an eye on the Eels? No. I fear that too much power has been handed to Fulton. While he was a tremendous player for the club, he did defect to the Roosters in 1977, yet he has a stand named in his honour at Brookvale. I dont recall Geoff Toovey ever defecting anywhere? I like Trent Barrett but must say that I fear that when a coach is so heavily endorsed by a conspiring saboteur like Zorba Peters, it is concerning.

    I am disheartened that so much of Manly has been torn away. The only pleasing sign so far has been the return of Brenton Lawrence. I welome your thoughts...

    Mate I think Koroisau is a terrific buy proved it in round 1 with his excellent defence and will be one of our best this season. Lussick played well on Friday but is ill disciplined and cost us a lot of opportunities. Myles is already our Best Buy from what he has given Jake and the other young forwards. He will come good, just needs time to find his feet. As does everyone else. Would you rather walker or hiku? Well this is why hiku was released so we could have the best young back in the comp. Hiku is good but not great. Who cares if carty says he rather be at Penrith, I'd rather be a Titans supporter at the moment. Even GI would probaly rather be at storm it's just how it goes. I love the manly now even though there not a team that's been together for years. They are a team of the future, walker, Trbojevic bros, knight, Koroisau are all future stars of the game and the future of our club, it's going to take time for us to play great footy for now just show patience, the wins will come.

    At least he picked the best team available week in, week out. Maybe he should consult to Barrett, and not Panthers boy Cartwright?

    Toovey picked Hasson week in week out, didn't he? Every losing coach gets hammered (and fair enough too)

    As TB said, we missed having the scheduled trial against the Roosters because of their World Club Series commitment. So hopefully we have got our (usual) bad trial out of our system in round one.

    In respect of the comments from the cub about how great our depth is this year I think the jury is still out. Our team (grades) still looks better on paper than on the field (albeit after one round). Successful teams quite often have this the other way round.

    Looking forward to Monday night.

    He is now the Gerry Anderson of the coaching world.

    Come to think of it, Trent does look a bit like an amalgam of Mike Mercury, Troy Tempest, Scott and Virgil Tracy and especially Captain Scarlet.

    She'll be apples!

    Just gotta work a few kinks out. Too much talent there to be a bad team.

    Faith and patience (dare I say) feathered friend!
