Someone had to post it, though it has been said obliquely by Chuckwood earlier. This is it boys. We are basically no hope but this could even be the dawning of a new Manly era if we can shake off the semi final monkey that has been riding around on our back. I fear we will be smashed and if we are it will be much worse than it feels now as there is at least hope that the real Manly might stand up and have a crack. Most important game of the season and one that Mata claimed at the start might be the match that decides our 2005 future.
