I love DCE but if the club shopped him around I wouldn't be unhappy.

I bet he wins a couple of games for us this year, either field goal or man of match performance.
Probably the most accurate post of the thread tbh.

That match reinforces that a) dce is a gun player, yet b) he is at his best when he can improvise and chip in (aka. He's the games best 5/8). Point b) because we started on fire and were self-sufficient off of our forwards, meaning he came in and facilitated the attacking punches off the back of the momentum. Yet when we were stuck in the second half we had to rely on his kicking game more than his organisational skills.

Awesome game tonight from him (kicking game unseen like this for a fair while). Cust deserves equal praise as well because he provided plenty of help.

He did well especially in the first half, wonderful try, great try assist for Thommo on half time. Second half like the rest of the team too many mistakes. With 8 to go and we are 14 up the play is get the ball into the corners with a kick on the last, he threw a bullet pass and an error and they scored directly from it. DCE has to manage games at the back end its the only real thing that is missing from his game.

He ran the ball a few times. . He didnt even have to dummy for the try. Its round 65 and we scored our first try from a kick. What he did yesterday and to an extent last week also is that he played his role. In fact many consider last week to be DCE worst game. I quite liked the fact that he took a halfbacks head on to the field. Or a number 6 head. It doesnt matter. I hate that loophole

No one expects cherry to be MOM every week. Just to play his role and if he plays that and fails then he is judged on his actions. Currently on this forum he is judged on what he would have done if others were better in magical la la land.
Chery cherry hes our man

Yesterday he met his expectations as a halfback , nothing more for a player of his standing.its great he has fans and keep that chant rolling but if anyone thinks cherries game yesterday justifies the rest of the season, well your missing the point

cherries misgivings have been ahot topic for many years , and i get that gets emotional. But keep context and dont let your emotions embelish his footy.

Para handed us that game on a plate coughing up the ball every time it mattered. Broncos the same

The things that have been missing in cherries game have everything to do with practice and attitude. That is not form its a mind set. He looked under pressure when he ran out yesterday. He should be

Nice win, and he played well. Some might say he earnt his paycheck................THIS WEEK

does this make me a hater ? Of cherry, manly what, because i think as a club. We could use his contract money to strengthen the club by getting a a few players with his money as opposed to the stupid arguement of who would you replace him with. You would get a 6, 7 and a back up 9 or similar

No ones right, its opinion based , but if a footy opinion is scowled at on a footy forum , only to be replaced with chery cherry hes our man, well you can see straight there its headed for trouble

That was the bullet pass to Moses Suli, who was out there after being needled up and clearly only had full use of one of his arms. Have to admit I yelled at the TV after that one. But the whole team seemed intent on giving Parramatta a way back into the game by that stage.

Sorry, but you are completely wrong as always. You regularly week in week out post crap about DCE. Even now still complaining we should spend the money elsewhere. Most commentators, players, experts, pass Manly greats all think highly of DCE and he plays one bad game like last week and apparently he has been inconsistent for many years. What a load of absolute crap. He has been one of the best if not the best half backs in the game for years now, your comments are just pathetic every week.

You should be the coach with great advice like this "things missing in DCE game come down to practice and attitude" wow, so you don't think he practices and has good attitude? Seriously WTF

Excellent bounce back from DCE, after the worst game of his career the week prior.

Keep running that ball.

As an aside, I though Cust taking a couple of early kicks took some pressure of DCE, with Parra not being able to simply load up on him.
Whether Cust stood up, or Cherry finally let some control go, I don't know....but it certainly helps everyone's game.

I would say we are bit of yin and yang on here. You do enjoy pumping his tyres up weekly which i find just as nauseating. Maybe im not the only one that needs to change the record .
