    Hi all,

    I just spoke with the leagues club and was informed there will be no supporter buses leaving from the Leagues Club on grand final day as was the case in '07 and '08. In '08 if you paid $25 and were on one of these buses you were guaranteed entry to the club which was awesome as it was going off like a frog in a sock!

    The only buses ferrying passengers to the game will be supplied by the RTA and they will be free.... this is a farking joke! The buzz in anticipation going to the game and the celebratory atmosphere going back to the club was unforgettable in '08.

    GO THE EAGLES!

    I think that want you to go to the live site at brooky oval after the game. The players are going there as well. Before they head to the club!

    For $30 you could have jumped on one of Mark Tramby's coaches.

    The running of the club by some is hard to believe. No supporter buses from the Leagues club!! Rumour has it no back to the club either? Is it oval, club or both? This does not include Larissa!![hr]
    sorry mark, just read your post!! Mark, can you go down and take over?? You always seem to know what's happening (with Larissa) Maybe management can get out of team photo's (Penn is good though)

    The Leagues Club will be a shut shop (although not shut as such just closed off to a Sponsors function)...because of the drama's in 2008 (and wisely so as well) Brookvale Live will be operating....far bigger, far more people able to get in and what better place to celebrate a GF victory than Brookvale Oval.

    I'll be there you going???[hr]
    And if you don't know of the drama's in 2008

    Try getting 10,000 people into the Leagues Club post game, AND upstairs was still available then...it's now less than half that size.

    This is not a SHUT OUT, this is just a far far better way of managing big numbers...BUT you need to pre buy your ticket at www.mwse.com.au

    Mark correctly explained that we will be putting the Live Site on in response to the way the 2008 post match celebrations were handled.

    Will the dramatic decrease in capacity at the Leagues Club we just wouldn't be able to fit enough people back there. Having that many fans in the street outside the club is also a huge OHS issue.

    As an FYI, the total capacity at the leagues club at any one time on Sunday will be 1500 people. I expect them to reach this by midday.

    In regards to buses, there will be direct services from ANZ to the northern beaches. For this reason we felt running a paid service would not be worthwhile. Visit www.131500.com.au to plan your trip.

    Thanks for the help Mark! :)

    Go Manly!

    [hr]
    Depends when the players get back there. I expect between 11pm and midnight.

    I understand about numbers etc etc for the club entry but the buzz and hype back at at the club in '08 cannot be replicated on an outdoor oval. Also, I still think it's disgraceful the club isn't organising buses from the Club and then allowing us entry to the field afterwards after forking out good $$$ to support the team at the game.

    I agree, don't get what the big deal is about it being at brookie. Anything that gives more people the chance to celebrate the great win. And it's symbolic of our great season. Silver, if you want to stay home and remember the leagues club in 08 feel free.

    Stop your whinging. The Oval makes sense, can get more people in and what better place to have a beer after a Manly GF victory. As for buses plenty of free public transport.
