    Starling did well in the first half.
    Our backs were fantastic while the forwards held their own (but the forwards couldn't keep it going).
    That's about it.

    How about:

    -the last time we lost to Melbourne in round 1, we ended up winning the premiership.

    It is week one boys.We have a major issue around fullback but I saw enough to give me the hope of another good year.

    The other longer term positive is we have a much better draw this year by not having to play 7 f...ing Monday night games.

    I don't - drank far too much last night which isn't a good idea after a loss like that one. I suppose the main positive is we get to improve over the next 23 rounds.

    When you think about it you can never really drink too much....another positive!

    On reflection it is a positive to have any complacency knocked out of the players early on.
    I think we'll come out very determined next week and beat Souths.

    How about:

    It wasn't a slaughter - we only lost by 1 point.

    One thing I'm positive about from last night. The referees are still f**king hopeless.

    The only way is up for the refs? Though we've seen that there's always a new lower level.

    I don't know what you are up to SER8, but if it's some sort of social experiment that you are conducting, then I vote for this thread... Go Manly!

    Tooves said something like "you can find positives in any game but that doesnt win games, at Manly we are about winning". Hes a bloody legend in my book.

    Hmm, not sure what you are getting at. My whole life is a social experiment, so far the results are inconclusive. :)

    I thought Hassan looked ok as well, and Blair looked the goods outside Jamie (when we were going forward)...and nearly scored the match winner in extra time.

    Not all bad, and yes def NOT a flogging

    I just thought it funny that you posted a thread titled 'It's all over' & five minutes later a new one 'positives from tonight'.

    Haha the second post was because I'm a glass half-full type.
    The first was because my bottle of Jim Beam had become half-empty (and I was a tad tired and emotional) ;)
