Lots of media crap this week but just out of interest where do you really reckon we'll be this time next year?

Assumptions being no decent recruits outside of what we already know, only the loss of the players we already know are leaving and Dessie still coaching?
 
It's better to burn out, than to fade away.
Turbo playing a full year may help compensate for the lose of Foran, Walker and Taupau but if he goes down again then I think we could drop to the bottom 4.
I only hope the club has 1 or 2 more signings to announce, even if they're just up and comers, we need something positive to get excited about.

I can’t see how we can vote not knowing what the squad will look like.

I’d say at this point more likely the same but it could just as easily be better or worse.

Our club is notorious for not telling us who the 30 ( or 28) are going to be until closer to season kick off.

So who knows what’s happening.

Considering we have about 12 players on the books at the moment Des is going to have to play the kids. Said it before and will say it again this has a real 93/94 feel to it. Some talented kids (that have to play) that will need to be complimented with some players over the next couple of years to go the final step

Who knows who’s still to leave or who is staying, contracts mean nothing.

Who knows ( apart from the very limited announcements) who’s coming in ( if any).

We can’t make any predictions until we know the full story.

My guess is Manly will have a very strong year. But a lot to play out over the off-season will affect this - possibly starting tomorrow!

I think we'll see a heap of that Blacktown team that won 2 games all year need to step up. This will be the team Des will field:

01. Tom Trbojevic
02. Jason Saab
03. Tolu Koula
04. Brad Parker
05. Reuben Garrick
06. Josh Schuster
07. Daly Cherry-Evans (C)
08. Josh Aloiai
09. Lachlan Croker
10. Sean Keppie
11. Haumole Olakau'atu
12. Kelma Tuilagi
13. Jake Trbojevic

14. Karl Lawton
16. Taniela Paseka
17. Ethan Bullemor
18. Toff Sipley

Des Hasler

And that team will run 2nd last. I'm guessing 5 wins, 19 losses.

And the only way to look at it @Mark from Brisbane is by taking it how it is now.
