    30 seconds before the boys run out tonight
    you are given the opportunity to have the final word before they run out - what would you say?

    '' Boys you know we can beat this lot. No one wants us to ,everyone thinks we are shot ducks and have nothing left in tank- let's stick it up to all this doubters

    This is our moment,our chance.Go get then gents.

    This is my last post before game.To all who end up coming out this evening to ANZ let's cheer loud and often- the boys are going to need the help.

    Beware the wounded warrior I say.

    Whatever the outcome this evening thank you to the whole manly team for providing us with so many memorable moments this year- I have never been prouder to call myself a manly supporter and member than what at times you have shown us this year- grit determination,not giving up when all hope is lost.

    Manly the club with the best culture, fans and ground. Manly forever!!

    Go get them gents!!'

    Go get them indeed. There is also the curse of the capitulations to expunge too, of same time last year and that storm grand final when they crunched snake.

    But the team is more mature now and plays with a smarter collective brain. I actually don't mind if the team loses as long as they do the club proud. With the refereeing and other controversies the results of games can be a little more random.

    If the line calls go our way and the refs don't think it's soccer we are well in it for win.

    One sentence I heard when playing touch footy in maryborough correctional centre for naidoc week by one of the older indigenous inmates to the other inmates...."Don't **** it up for us"

    Of course inevitably two of thw inmates got in a punch up and ****ed it up for them but I have always thought it was a straight to the point and good speech

    I'd be saying " this ones for Kitey / Joey and all our fans who come out and cheer week in week out, there's never been more expectation on a team than your opposition, use that to your advantage and never never ever give up. Remember our proud club history, and remember you are one of the lucky ones to wear the maroon and white, now get out there and play for each other like we know you can"

    I always liked a single sentence a coach gave ot us once before a semi-final:

    "Each one of you can look across at your opposite number out there and know you are better than he is...now go prove it!"

    I'd throw this in;

    I don't know what to say really.
    Three minutes
    to the biggest battle of our professional lives
    all comes down to today.
    we heal
    as a team [I'm lookin' at you Cherry and Snake]
    or we are going to crumble.
    Inch by inch
    play by play
    till we're finished.
    We are in hell right now, gentlemen
    believe me
    we can stay here
    and get the **** kicked out of us
    we can fight our way
    back into the light.
    We can climb out of hell.
    One inch, at a time.

    Now I can't do it for you.
    I'm too old.
    I look around and I see these young faces
    and I think
    I mean
    I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
    I uh....
    I pissed away all my money
    believe it or not.
    I chased off
    anyone who has ever loved me.
    And lately,
    I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.

    You know when you get old in life
    things get taken from you.
    That's, that's part of life.
    you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
    You find out that life is just a game of inches.
    So is football.
    Because in either game
    life or football
    the margin for error is so small.
    I mean
    one half step too late or to early
    you don't quite make it.
    One half second too slow or too fast
    and you don't quite catch it.
    The inches we need are everywhere around us.
    They are in ever break of the game
    every minute, every second.

    On this team, we fight for that inch
    On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
    to pieces for that inch.
    We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
    Cause we know
    when we add up all those inches
    that's going to make the ****ing difference
    between WINNING and LOSING
    between LIVING and DYING.

    I'll tell you this
    in any fight
    it is the guy who is willing to die
    who is going to win that inch.
    And I know
    if I am going to have any life anymore
    it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
    because that is what LIVING is.
    The six inches in front of your face.

    Now I can't make you do it.
    You gotta look at the guy next to you.
    Look into his eyes.
    Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
    You are going to see a guy
    who will sacrifice himself for this team
    because he knows when it comes down to it,
    you are gonna do the same thing for him.

    That's a team, gentlemen
    and either we heal now, as a team,
    or we will die as individuals.
    That's football guys.
    That's all it is.
    Now, whattaya gonna do?

    I'd go through the tipsters selections: Souffs, Souffs Souffs...
    and individual Souffs players, playing up their strengths.
    Then finish with: Nobody thinks you can win. . . . except me, yours mates on either side of you, and all those fans wearing maroon-and-white out there, cheering their hearts out.
    Just better your opposition player, and we'll return here next week to send Kitey, George and Joe off in a way they truly deserve - as NRL champions.

    I think this game tonight will be about one thing....heart. If I was brought in to talk to the team I'd show a quick 30 second montage of the person who has more heart than anyone, Geoff Toovey.

    I'd show Geoff Toovey getting his head kicked in, getting smashed by the Chief, getting pounded constantly. The finishing with him holding aloft the trophy as he picks up the CCM.

    I'd then say 'that man over in the corner would be out there tonight if he could, copping kicks/punches whatever it would take to win. Are you going to let him down?' (then I'd grab Watmough/Gift and Horo and say 'everytime Reynolds or Sutton get the ball you take one of his ribs')
