    I'm not sure how you guys feel about Des, but I don't like him. I am still angry at him.

    But, if he was willing to come back, I would take him back. If he could produce results again here, whether I like him or not, I wouldn't hesitate. Our success as a team means so much more to me.

    Just like you guys, I live and breathe Manly. As long as we can shred everyone, I'd include an awesomely talented serial killer on the team.

    Would you guys take Des back?

    I would like Tooves back First.
    I love Des. The club played it's part in cocking up his re signing as much as anyone. But whether or not they could control his expenditure is another thing.
    I would feel much more comfortable with him back but as Football manager, with Tooves as coach would be my choice.
    But Des as coach would do.

    A bit harsh in the current situation feathered friend. I know he sinned but wouldn't you feel more confident?

    I agree I'd prefer Tooves.

    But it's been the year from hell. Any coach would have struggled.

    We'll see how we go next year.

    It is more of a matter of principle of having the prodigal son back feathered friend. There is a saying " You don't sh*t on your nest " :)

    Can we stop making threads wishing for old coaches to come back?
    As said previously we've had a torrid run with injuries and everything else that could've went wrong this year.

    Let's give Barrett a proper chance next season without a lot of the deadwood that we are carrying at the moment and then judge.

    Des is a tactical master in coaching 2 premierships at manly, has also had the dogs in 2 grand finals.The other thing des brings is stability in a team he's like a mentor i'd have him back in a nutshell.

    No way!!! I would however ditch the people responsible for decimating our Holden cup team and players who we're ditched and now killing it at other clubs.

    De$ has pretty much free reign at the Bulldogs and a budget bigger than some African countries GDP to play with.

    The chances of him coming back to Manly, with others in control, and a tighter than tight budget to work with...........Zero!!

    Would I want the prick back...........Yeah .......NAH!!!!!

    Back where is the question? An alley? The outback? Insert evil laugh.@:D
    But seriously I'd take the coaching abilities but the ego and lust for money would have to go but unfortunately they seem to be a package deal these days.

    Yes from me. on the strict condition that the club and Desmond have and keep a zero tolerance to Back-Ended contracts. ie these are banned from MWSE.
