    anyone know who was there today? I could only recognise Max K, ZtH (ick), and Ron Gibbs of all the faces. To my horror they just looked like a bunch of old blokes, which I guess they are!
    Though, having followed Manly for a good 4 decades, I thought I might recognise a few more.
    Anyone?

    Totally agree BE. I noticed Wombat and kingy, Danny Moore, beaver and maybe Russell Gartner but after that they all seemed to look like they went to the same barber

      I thought the same.

      I saw Gartner, Bryant, Josh Perry, Joe Galuvao.

      I hate these days the host team never wins.

        It was great to see the legends at the game today. Wow we are a lucky club to have had so many good players over the years. Seeing the Wombat was amazing cause he was my hero when I was a kid.

          Don't forget in almost 70 years there's been a LOT of players.

          A great initiative by Boxy and Teddy to get this up and rolling.

            They provided an extra incentive to the team. Unfortunately, not our team!
            I'm gutted at such a lacklustre performance in front of our greats at Fortress Brookie in such a vital match against very poor opposition.
            Totally unexplainable.

                Smiled at the 'old boy' Cliffy a day after playing over 35s soccer semi against him. Cliffy probably played 30 mins tops, and was good enough to bag a double for Beacon Hill, including a bullet header!

                        I applaud the effort of the Golden Eagles. I attended the club before the game, and the Lyons Bar was cordoned off for their official function. No public access...I thought this was dumb! But to my dismay, they barred the public after the game as well. I didn't seek entry, but watched many die hard fans waiting in a queue to get a glimpse of their heroes. Ahh but no, the club blocked the stairs for the private shindig. Obviously some were allowed in but the general consensus from the punters was what a wasted opportunity it was for the regular fans to rub shoulders with the players and old boys. Food for thought in the future Boxy.

                          Brett Fulton,Emu Rodgers, Alan Thompson with his son whose name I forget but I think he played lower grades around the same time as Leigh Krilich. Freddy Jones leading the way. Dave O'Donnell, Matt Dunford.

                            hmmfh, I thought their marketing was to get the supporters to the club to meet the former players. That is a shame

                            I think it's a great initiative and hopefully will become an annual event. I can understand them cordoning off the area as many of those ex-players may not have seen each other for yonks, might not always be that way in future?

                            I think I recognised Ed Whiley and John Bucknell. Maybe Mick Waller too. And someone who looked suspiciously like Phil Sigsworth. Looked like Wayne Springall was there also. Plus the Beaver. Max Brown was there. Mark Brokenshire. I was hopeful of spotting Goldie Walker and Tarzan Knight, to no avail. It was all happening.

                            And there is only one 'L' in Russel Gartner. Don't blame me, blame his parents.

                              Jason King was there too.
