    If Matt Cross is half as good as his father Peter who played a season with Manly in the eighties then he will turn our club around next year. 

    His uncle Merv also used to play for norths in the sixties and is quite a good knee surgeon as well.

    Apparently, a caller on Zorba's show said that Foran to the Rorters was a done deal and Zorba did not deny it. If this is true, what is going on? Why let a young gun go (even the commentators at 9 and Arko have been talkin him up - so don't compare him to Groom) and keep a 32 year old? I haven't re-joined as a member yet and if Foran is gone, as well as JWH, then I have to question the club's professionalism!!

    but we can keep matai, lyon and farrar, that certainly will make a difference to our backline.

    Yeah, but as we saw last night, you can have the best three-quarters in the game, but if there is nothing doing in the halves...?

    Since we won the grand final the club has gone backwards. I still can't believe Souths are more attractive option to a player like Burgess then us even with Beaver talking us up that's embarrassing.It is well known that Foran is signed with the Roosters and that's why the silence is deafening on a contract extension for him.The question still has to be asked why are we signing trash like Bailey,Rodney,TWilliams,Cross,Gaulavou surely we knew what we had coming thru? As a club we should only recruit Quality if not go with what we have not waste cap space on other clubs cast offs

    It just seems that we are on the slide at the moment and no one can be bothered to do anything about it. Power vacuum with no CEO? I said to a Manly mate of mine the other day that I fear we are turning into another Gold Coast, circa 1988-1997 - transit lounge for ageing players (dad's army) and Souths since their re-admittance. From what I have heard eg Daly Cherry-Evans off to the Dogs and Hodkinson wanting a release, what on earth is the club planning for the halves? Does the club have a plan? Or are they happy to remain competitive in the short term? Doesn't seem to much future planning going on

    This is a guess - Des is in control!

    He is the one recommending certain players be bought, resigned, or not, etc, and it is not willy nilly. It is according to some plan he has. The plan would be about who will fit the team he is building, and who we need for current purposes, and who we need for the near future.

    That is not to say we can keep/snare all the players we would like to.

    As for transit louinge, well Storm's recruitment recently looks similar to ours, sign players who are not stars yet they fit the plan and grow a leg. Ryan Tandy anyone?

    Des has shown a heap of smarts as a thinking coach, I wouldn't be writing off the recruitment just on one poor year which was actually quite a good year if you take the disastrous start out.

    A bit of perspective is needed here.

    The club has developed superbly in the last few years but as each team that has made the top has found, it is hard to stay there. Premiership players demand more money and something has to give. As much as Melbourne are hated they have done well to be around the top for four years. Look who they have lost in the process though - Falou, Matt King and a heap of others I can't be bothered looking up. Every premiership team of the last 10 years has had to let players go eventually due to cap pressure.

    We did have the top Under 20s team over 26 rounds and the club has done a good job developing those younger players, some of which will graduate to the top squad. (Sad to see a few ex-Manly juniors in the winning Melb squad though!)

    A balance between players at the top of their game and emerging talent is challenging and up to now it has been pretty well handled. 2009 was a shocker for Manly with the start and the injury to Snake, the injury at the end to Killer and the Hall still birth. None of those things happened and who knows???

    Bottom line is that there is no unlmited stream of money anymore and the days of running internationals in reserve grade are long gone. I am sad that JWH has gone and that Foran might go (unconfirmed). I am sure there are those behind the scenes working at retention, getting the balance of the squad right.

    There is justification for those that feel that paying overs to Orford is a bad move, espeically if we don't then have room in the cap to keep Foran. There is a lot of guesswork in this too as who knows what Foran himself wants? There are lots of factors other than money.

    Why would Foran have signed with the rorters now?

    His manager has previously stated that he won't sign a contract until mid way next year and why would he sign one now when his value will increase with every first grade game that he plays?

    Also where will he play at the rorters?  Carney is 5/8 and pearce is half?  He wouold be wasted at hooker.

    Why would he sign with the Roosters ? Because his mothers partner is the Roosters Recruitment Officer. That has to be influential. There have been rumours that he signed a contract for 2011 more than 12 months ago.

    If that is true one can hardly blame Manly for that.
