    This is not a MANLY football product on show !

    I can not remember a display of such rubbish since the Northern Eagles days !

    Recruitment of staff and players has been a major failure !

    I predict this Barrett experiment to be a major fail !!

    2004 redux?

    Fulton used to do this sort of thing when he was Roosters coach. Massive clean out each year for a couple of years before he settled on his lineup.

    I hope all our corporate sponsors are happy with the brand of footy the Penns have dished out ! Sitting in the corporate box with the crap Barrett and the Penns are serving !

    massive clean up was not needed ! we got rid our strong player's and brought in lewis brown and Nate Myles ! whoever continues to stick up for the Penns and Fulton garbage are in denial ! or suffering PTSD

    Yep, while I will always be a supporter, it is clear the Barrett experiment is doomed and will go down in the archives as a complete failure.

    Everything from recruitment to game plans has been appalling.

    To put our season into perspective, the bookies still have Parra finishing higher on the ladder than us.

    The problem is injuries. Once our backline gets back to full strength and everyone else goes into Origin camp we should be fine.

    Our draw is also very tough! Cowboys RD9 and Broncos RD10. Are you kidding me???

    This game never happened! Let's smash the Sharks next week!

    I sent the exact same thing to a mate back in Australia!

    There is no heart or culture and nothing that resembles a team out there, just a lot of individuals running about.

    We had such a decent looking pack but they are absolute rubbish and provide no platform.

    DCE is playing much better but had no one playing around him.

    I can't even see a nucleus here to build off of, this will be a long few years in afraid

    It is the Northern Eagles - changing of the guard and clean out at the Club means that everyone is a stranger.@:cool:

    Will take a few years for another core group to bring the Manly Winning Culture back I'm afraid :(

    Who is our forward playmaker? Looking at our bench these days gives me a sense of hopelessness.

    A friend asked me two days ago how come he hadnt seen me in my Manly cap and jersey this season. I live in a small town and for 20 years have always donned the colours both summer and winter.

    I bought the Heritage Jersey before the season started and got my members cap but haven't worn either.

    I dont care if we dont win, I will still love my team.

    But this is not Manly.

    Missing the top eight is a failure, a failure for the players we have and a massive failure for who we are. But i am seriously doubting we will make the top eight ( actually a top nine this year).
    Results driven business is driving us down down down.

    I feel we have also been spoilt by success, many of us don't understand what it really means to suck it up as a supporter. Frankly we can do nothing about decisions made about recruitment - aside from bitching and moaning, but that happens on this site after a 38 game winning streak

    Take it easy people. Yes, we were horrible but how many truly thought we were in with a shot tonight. Broncos are one of the benchmark Teams and we are not the first Team they have towelled up this year. We will put in a better performance next week.

    They actually gave up in the last 10 or so minutes. Probably not because they didn't care but because they realised they were so inept that there was no way out of the quagmire! Very sad indeed!
