oh my god...
by the way... we havent scored that many off kicks :roll:
A good nights sleep to think about our halves
Monas 9, Witt 7, Mullane 6.
This time last year I nominated Sutton as a player we should sign and was roundly panned. I believe Sue mentioned something about a "fat retard".
Seems like Sutton has come good. Though that sort of thing can be very temporary at Souths.
sorry i cant write to your intelligence level Mata.
Let me rephrase.
Since your bringing back the past... ( You saying about Sutton being good ) to make yourself look good that you spotted a talent....
Im bringing up the Mullane issue from last year.. where you didnt rate him and now you suddenly do...
Does that make sense? Ill make sure i skip a few Manly games so i can go improve my english skills such as yourself.
Giving Mullane a go is worth a shot at some stage, just not right now. I'd like to see how Monaghan & Witt bounce back after what happened as they seemed to be getting something happening 'til Saturday. Alberts coming into the side may help them look better too. And moving Monaghan to hooker would undoubtably see Chad dropped, after his best performance in some time this is not the week for that.
Good idea though, Mullane may offer some much needed variation.
I don't really see Willo as a hooker though. He, like Sam Harris should be used as a ball playing forward. We could still use Dunly as an impact player & move Monas back to half some of the time & Mullane or Witt can play in the backs if some reason requires it. (injury, variation, whatever). The thing that the great Manly sides all had in common (defence aside), was creative players in all sorts of positions, not just 6,7,9 & 1 or 13. So, the more the better I say, at the expence of Chad though.
Like Tooves mate. He was SOOO diverse & skillfull. Hmmm, your probably right come to think of it. All the great sides DO have skillfull 1/2's. This is AE, so I can be honest with what I hope for for next year with our playing roster, so here goes:-
1 - buy Braith Anasta
2 - buy Shaun Berrigan
3 - buy Luke Bailey
4 - release Chad Randall
5 - release Daniel Heckenberg
6 - release Shayne Dunley
7 - release Phil Morwood
8 - release Jim Curtis
I would LOVE to keep Dunley, but I'm thinking 1, we'll need the money for those other players & 2, with Monnas at Hooker, we probably won't need a back up Hooker (same as Buderus with Newcastle), and we could use Ballin if the need be. It would be a side like this:-
1. Brett Stewart
2. Scott Donald
3. Shaun Berrigan
4. Ashley Alberts
5. Chris Hicks
6. Braith Anasta
7. Michael Witt
8. Brent Kite
9. Michael Monaghan
Dreams dude. Way too expensive.
Hecks over Kylie any day. Don't trust Anasta, his head is all over the place & would be disruptive. Berro would be great but can't see him leaving bannanaland for anything we could afford. Yeah Bailey would be an asset. I just couldn't justify losing Dunley. He plays like a man posessed, wouldn't be on that much money & keeps coming back to Manly, he wants to be here.
Volley _ I thought the same thing with the cap, but consider we were possibly in the market for King / Orford. Then consider what Chad Randall ,Daniel Heckenberg, Shayne Dunley, Phil Morwood & Jim Curtis are on. I tell you this, Randalls contract was rather large because when it was put together, the team was playing very, very badly, but Randall was playing above the rest.
I think it could be done. Remember, we used $800k unspent towards Kite & Kennedy, so month byu month NOW, they wouldn't be costing as much as you think.
