Always saying he is not a career coach and now having a contact until he is 55, I would presume the contract he is about to sign will be his last. The success at Manly took a while to come and I think the Dogs are in as bad shape as we were when Des took over. Some differences are 1. We had a club legend in Steve Menzies in the ranks, the Dogs have nothing Pritchard, Ennis, Tolman and Barber just dont cut it. 2. We recruited a club legend in Ben Kennedy, good luck finding one of those. 3. Then Jamie Lyon finally come to the club he had wanted to play with for years, and another club legend was born. Good luck finding someone who wants to play with the Dogs with Jamies ability. I would say that of the Dogs 2011 starting 13 not a single player would make the best 13 Manly could field during 2011. Maybe Pritchard, Idris and Barber might make our bench. Ryan and Ennis maybe. Des will be lucky to get in the finals at the Dogs during his four years. Its just not enough time. I wish him well but success will be hard to get at that club with their roster.
