    Ahhhh good old Feleti...

    Why did we sign this guy again?

    We used to be good at taking NSW Cup players and developing them into solid footballers, but I don't know if this is the case anymore.

    Mateo has been a dud for some time now, 2013 and 2014 he was particularly poor.

    IMO his offload is just stupid. Only 1 out of 5 offloads of his actually come off, the rest all hit the ground and give the opposition the possession.

    Not happy.

    He was much better at 5/8. Seems to suit his game more.

    He maybe out for sometime with his knee injury anyway

    I actually thought Mateo played tonight, which is better than a few other more highly paid super-egos. He put in, and if anything, was guilty of trying a bit too hard (much like a lot of DCE's performances recently). Has lazy moments off the ball.

    Yeah let's hope his knee is ok. Didn't look good

    Halves, lock, off the bench or off the team. He has talent but it is wasted otherwise.

    Like loosing Watmough and gaining Watmough just running him in the forwards with no direction. Rocks or cubic zirconia in general play.

    Mateo needs to be on the left-hand side to play his natural game ,but with foran back he got shafted to the right.Tooves needs to bite the bullet and piss Foz off for the good of the team.Foran has done nothing for the last 12 or so games for Manly and tonight he show cased it again,not to mention his terrible defence

      He needs to just hold the bloody ball it was crazy everytime we finally had the ball we coughed it up with just bonehead moves in stupid positions. He was horrible tonight and completely stopped the halves from having any time or space

        It was the type of game were he just had to tuck it under his arm and run the ball.. The line speed and gang tackling from the dragons shut down most opportunities for offloading. Geoff Toovey should have seen this and had a word with mateo.

        Has he ever gone to the ground with the ball ?
        His sense of urgency seems to be arse backwards.

        Feleti has always been a rocks or diamonds sort of player, He is talented but at times reckless and that has been his career so far, what he needs is to learn discipline and understand that there are times in games where you just have to be disciplined with the ball.

        What I want to know is, why were the tacklers who injured him not penalised for putting into a dangerous position beyond the horizontal even though he still had one leg in contact with the ground? Oh that's right, how silly of me. That only happens if the tackled player is Greg Inglis. [​IMG]

          Needs to play at five-eigth on the left side. Bring another forward like sao onto bench. Foran, well..looks like a waste of space out there..Geoff Toovey as the coach needs to sort something out, cause at the moment, it's just not working.

            To be fair to Feleti, he had 2 fantastic weeks at 5/8, and Foran just strolls back in to his position, after creating so much unrest, and being so down on form.

            Sounds ridiculous, but could this playing group be playing in a way to purposely get Toovey replaced?

            Hope not.

              Mateo's hands make Tafua look like a circus juggler
