    The Telecrap is reporting that

    "Three Sydney NRL clubs tipped as favourites for wood spooon"

    The slime, the dogs

    And

    the eagles.

    I don't think we will come close tbh..

        Me neither. However, I'm more optimistic this year.

            Roosters after Nick gets a little senile and slips on how the rorters have been able to attract the players they have had on the books.
            Stripped of the last two premierships and salary cap reduced by a million.

              There’ll be a surprise for sure, teams expected to do well that fail.

              And vice versa.

              But **** I hope it’s the Eels again!!!

                When you consider the last 3yrs the club has probably gone backwards both on and off the field, it's not surprising to think we will be toward the bottom end of the ladder in 2019.

                But .... Des (unlike Baz) knows how to coach an NRL team. We will see improvement but it'll be slow and calculated.

                Would be happy to see us improve to within reach of the top 8 next year and then push for finals in 2020 as Des starts to remove the stain left by Baz.

                That all said, you never know. There would be nothing sweeter than seeing Manly challenge some top teams.

                  Wooden spoon contenders for me are Canberra Faiders and the dogs.

                        Can't see us making the 8 but will be closer to 8th than 16th.

                          Realisticly all it takes is a dce injury and were dead in the water..

                          Personally I don't think we will get the spoon, but with a similar (if not worse) roster than last year I can very easily see why people would think were a real chance at it..

                          Add in how des's last season as head coach went...

                          You must’ve missed the article about Foz training down the house and being the fittest he’s ever been (apart from a slight hamstring twinge that made him miss a few training sessions).

                            As a reminder, here is a list of all the teams that are playing this year (in alphabetical order)
                            Brisbane Broncos
                            Canberra Raiders
                            Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
                            Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
                            Gold Coast Titans
                            Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
                            Melbourne Storm
                            Newcastle Knights
                            New Zealand Warriors
                            North Queensland Cowboys
                            Parramatta Eels
                            Penrith Panthers
                            South Sydney Rabbitohs
                            St. George Illawarra Dragons
                            Sydney Roosters
                            Wests Tigers

                            I think Warriors might struggle, and Tigers, and Dogs ... but I don't look at that list and see a bunch of obvious Manly wins.
                            Will certainly be interesting to see how Des can galvanise the troops.

                              Hopefully the team uses that as motivation for an improvement this season. But i can see why we are lumped in that group, our depth is mainly reliant on unknown players.

                                Just an ad for the TAB hidden under the illusion of a news article.

                                  We won’t come close to the spoon. We will make the eight - I have no doubt.

                                      16.Titans = last for mine.
                                      15. Dogs = could have a real shocker
                                      14. Sharks = will not be the same club under John Morris.
                                      13. Parra = don't have the Cattle and are still carrying Tim Mannah.
                                      12. Raiders = might improve they cleaned out and refreshed the backroom coaching staff it might pay off.
                                      11. Warriors = will go seriously backward without Johnson & Blake Green is over-rated & will breakdown. Kearney had a 2018 like Barretts 2017 (Lucky result)
                                      10. West Tigers = Still don't have the cattle.
                                      9. Knights = Kalyn Ponga will not have the same impact due to other teams doing serious homework on him
                                      8. Souths = Bennett will get a half decent season out of the change
                                      7. Manly = a big improvement but missing a bit of depth, this is where i reckon we end up.
                                      6. St Merge = don't think they have any improvement in them but won't drop too far.
                                      5. Cowboys = will improve but will still struggle without JT.
                                      4. Melbourne = Last season in top 4, the rot will set in this season and once Smith starts missing a few games through injury the struggle will begin.
                                      3. Roosters = Will not go too far backwards but won't be the team of last season.
                                      2. Penrith = Big Improvers and will challlenge for the GF
                                      1. Broncos = Will Improve substantially coupled with another dream draw, much to the annoyance of every other club.

                                        If Manly had one more first rate strike centre I would be calling top 4 ......... Forwards are in the top 3 ..... spine is top 4 all day every day .... centres are the only issue .....

                                        But I am confident we have enough young talent to get the job done ..... top 8 all day ...
