Just some random facts for no real reason. In our 70 years, Manly have had a total of 22 coaches. Only 4 coaches or 18% of those have given use Premierships. Those 4 coaches were in charge for a total of 32 years or 46% of our existence. The shortest period in charge before a premiership was Stanton - 2 years, then Willey - 4 years, followed by Bozo and Dessie - 5 years. Each of those 4 have given us two premierships Each of those 4 coaches was an ex Manly player. How did that work out for them. Ron Willey passed away a sad, lonely and largely forgotten fiqure. Stanton only remembered by us oldies, hardly ever mentioned when the great '76 and '78 teams are mentioned. Bozo, openly despised by many on this site. Dessie, openly despised by many on this site.
