Yep it's come and in a flash it's gone, over for me that is. I do have fonder memories of this season, and am glad that at least we made the finals. I guess as I am in Adelaide and didn't get to see the Mighty Sea eagles live as many of you have, my season came in a box. My comments will also come from what I have seen on this box. Firstly I would like to thank all of you guys for your thoughts and threads, as this is a great site with great debates. Now for my assessment if I may. The Players: I feel that all the players gave their very best. There were those who’s best were not up to First grade standard, but they do not pick themselves to play week in and week out. There is no person I know who has yet to knock back a promotion with a promise of adulation and big bucks. Should we have dropped them? Well if we had, did we have the people to replace them? Who would’ve replaced Witt, King, Randall, Monas, Harris, Donald and to a lesser extent our problem in the centers. Are we that bereft of talent, that we had to continue with these players, or, was it right to resort to the makeshift stopgap measures we resorted to. Now you must understand that the reason I am asking this question is because I am from Adelaide and honestly do not know. Other than the bleeding obvious I think the rest of the players performed as we expected and in certain circumstances beyond expectations. For this I salute you. The Coaches: I believe that they will hopefully learn that this is top grade and being that, we can ill afford to get on the park with no back up plans when things go wrong. I am yet to be convinced that we have sound structures in place, in case we flounder with plan A. Once we seem to be outwitted, we seem to run around like headless chooks. We do not seem to have players in motion near to the attacking zone. This leaves us easy to defend against. Do we have a back line coach? If not, then Cliffy Lyons is a must at all costs. I do wholeheartedly agree that Mark Carroll must be brought into the fold also. I also feel that a call to Malcolm Reilly as a coaching advisor is an option. Dessie is green and it showed. The Supporters: The Adelaide Hills were alive with the Manly Chant week in and week out. That ladies and gentlemen was worth more than gold to me. You kept our dreams alive. For this I thank all of you. Until next year Go the Mighty Sea Eagles.
