    2. Blair - big for nothing
    3. Lyon - A legend going backwards
    4. Matai - injury prone playing well
    5. Hiku - talented must lose weight
    6. Foran - overrated - not playing well
    7. DCE - talented trying hard
    8. Starling - Plodder, tough need him
    9. Ballin - ultra consistent lacks punch
    10. Willie - passionate, value for money
    11. Buhrer - future captain
    12. Mateo- having a dig, skilful
    13. Lui - more a bench player
    14. Jake T - Sky is the limit
    15. JSL - average
    16. Symonds - benchie
    17. Lawrence - too little, gets dominated
    18. Burgess - give me Sam please
    19. Tafua - great talent wasted
    20. Gutherson - shows promise
    21. Horo - ABSOLUTELY USELESS
    22. Hodges - talented, different than ballin
    23.Williame - shows promise good start
    24.Sao - like him, aggressive
    25.Andrews - LOG

    Notable mentions - we have the two most phenomenal young talents in the NRL below.

    26. Tom Trbovejic - Potentially better than Inglis
    27. Ramien - Supreme in attack defence

    I don't think the talent pool at the club is responsible for the sub-par performances...I think the drama has simply caught up with us, and the playing group is not buzzing like it needs to be.

    This is a tough competition, and talent only gets you so far. You need 17 committed players to take the field in order to win against any opposition team outside of maybe the Raiders.

    I just don't think there is a good vibe at Manly for obvious reasons, and it's showing on the field. Sure, we are short a couple of stars in the forwards to challenge for a premiership, but there is enough quality in our roster to make the finals and cause headaches along the way IF we play with spirit and commitment. We proved this against Melbourne; we were under siege and played like men possessed, but it's hard to get up like that every week with the cloud that's hanging over our club.

    Don't look to the squad of 25 for faults in order to account for our current failings. The nucleus of this same squad were a bees dick off taking out the minor premiership last year. We are a club in crisis, the effects of which are now starting to manifest on the field, instead of simply off it.

    I watched the game. Basically we had no ball for the first 11 minutes.

    DCE gave away two (yes 2) penalties for holding down opposition players on tackle four and five in the first two sets. That out us back on our own try line for the start of the game.

    I'm sorry people but im not a fan of JSL...not sure what he brings..nice guy...but that's it...
    Snake...is our best player at the moment..BUT...getting old...bringing the ball back..can't break the line or cause a half break...but when he chimes into the backline...Super.....
    The issue...our injuries...will cause more pain and the season could be gone before we get everyone fit and the best team on the park.....im hoping the State of Origin period will help us...

    1. Snake - putting in, getting old
    2. Blair - poor defensive reads. next
    3. Lyon - Legend ...injury prone
    4. Matai - Legend, injury prone
    5. Hiku - Fullback, playing wrong position
    6. Foran - Can't read his mind
    7. DCE - Always trying..
    8. Starling - out.solid
    9. Ballin - Super Man..
    10. Willie - Giving his best
    11. Buhrer - needs fitness..Very Solid
    12. Mateo- Worst buy, lazy ass
    13. Lui - Needs to improve stamina
    14. Jake T - Potential plus
    15. JSL - CRAP..sorry people
    16. Symonds - Underrated....
    17. Lawrence - maybe change to back-row...
    18. Burgess - Running hard, going well
    19. Tafua - improve high ball catching
    20. Gutherson - Potential...
    21. Horo - not sure what happened?
    22. Hodges - future Hooker
    23.Williame - Covering injuries fairly well.
    24.Sao - Potential Wrecking ball

    Overhaul in the Forwards . Players with line speed and ones that make metres going forward and not running side ways . If we dont fix this deficiency no halve combination can excel.
