    What the most disappointing thing i found this year was not our second half fade outs but our record at brookie

    This year it seem we gave up to many easy games at brookie and  manly didn't have the intimidation of years gone past  playing at brookie.

    What i mean is that i think we just expected that just turning up and playing at brookie will equal a win ( i.e the para and titans game for example). That being said this wasn't the case for all games ( the dragons, storm games come to mind where we  actually did turn up ).

    I want to see  brookie back to becoming a place where teams fear coming to play. Lastly as well, if our record does improve maybe we may see an increase in attendance levels which was disappointing also this year.

    Players do fear coming to Brookie - they fear they might break their ankles!

    Make the opposition teams eat the brookie oval food for lunch on game days and then you will be able to call it the porcelain fortress

    The bottom line is that the club hasn't been mentally right since the World Club Challenge win in 2009 and we have been unable to lift enough as a result.

    The reasons for that have all been documented, but we must find a way to get our heads right for 2011.

    We have been gaining slightly for home games averages, which surprises me but I'll assume the stats are correct.

    Losing a bit for away games.

    Interesting stats, which show that our peak years were 1968 and 1972 with an average home crowd of well over 18,000.
    Wonder if they can break it down further to an average on Sunday afternoon Vs other times. I'm sure it would be 20-30% higher on a Sunday.
