    It's kind of slow today, so just out of boredom and slight interest, would anyone support a permanent move to Gosford? And why yes/no

    The only move I would support is no less than 8 games at Brookie.

    8 @ Fortress
    2 @ SFS
    2 @ Gosford.

    The more I think about it, I think I'd rather move their stadium to Brookie!

    If it ever came to the worst case scenario, mine would be 6 games at Brookie, 3 at Gosford, 2 at Allianz and one left for either SCG, WA, NZ or Country NSW etc.

    The days of cramming 16,000 into Brookie for a blockbuster are slowly going.

    We need more corporate facilities and a couple of crowds in the mid to high 20,000's to stay viable.

    It's not like we have a big Leagues Club or a Nick Politis to prop us up with crowd averages around the 14,000 mark....and that's on a good year!

    If, by some miracle, brookie does get an upgrade and we're forced out for a season I'm sure Gosford would make a great temporary base.

    I love Bookie BUT I must say watching the under 20's on the central coast yesterday made realise how bad Brookie really is. The pitch was perfect.
    Id support 6 games at Brookie and 3 at Gosford and the rest where ever for now.

    Im just not sure whether central coast community support any team to be honest look at the support the central coast mariners get very poor to be honest.

    The Manly Warringah / central coast sea eagles I guess the life style is very similar.. As long as it is maroon and white jersey with a sea eagle emblem on it id support them no matter where they play.

    If we can keep Brookie and get the "old girl" back up to scratch then the corporate opportunities will be huge...I'm hoping that's what the Penns are thinking.

    I think after the success of Rat Park in the trial we know where our new home ground should be.

    its bad enough taking 1-2 games a year up to that crappy stadium.

    If you get the kind of crowds we need then don't eat or drink or piss as you miss half an hour of the game. Also get ready for my knees in the back of your head the entire game due to the rows being so close together. It was built cheap and is cheap and nasty.Only decent when half full or less.

    Add to that needing to pay twice as much to sit on the side compared to Brookie

    Some have short memories. Manly would die as a club if it ever moved permanently to Gosford. It should only ever be seen as an interim measure, whilst Brookvale is out of service, or to stage 1 or 2 games a year. If Brooky is upgraded further, cut it away completely. The locals want their own team, not a transplanted team and certainly not ours.
    Parts of the CC are Northern Beaches-like, however much of it is more like Blacktown, Parramatta or increasingly Lakemba in the case of The Entrance. I know, I've owned two properties there since the late '80s.

    As long as we need 16,000 people through the gates every home game, just to break even at Brookie, other options will always be discussed.
