There are clean outs and then there are kamikaze missions. With the approach our current custodians have taken, is it any wonder we're a basket case? For your consideration: * The Penns were victorious in a bitter board battle yet, much like Tony Abbott's inability to go from opposition leader to actual leader, seem clueless as to what to do now that they have won. * Joe Kelly totally botched the halves negotiation and appears to have never recovered. * Lurking around the club appears to be an extremely vengeful man, Zorba. * A great majority of the admin staff have been shown the door. * There is a new doctor in the place. * Players have a different strength and conditioning bloke and presumably regime. * There is a completely new coaching staff. * Our new head coach is an unproven rookie. * The previous coach was a legend who still had a year on his contract. * A number of players were on a fairly public list trumpeting the fact that they were not wanted. * The Eagles Angels were shafted. * The footy club, the true holders of the Manly tradition, have been sidelined at every turn. I'm sure there's a whole lot more but, just looking at that list, you'd have to wonder what remains of the fabric of our great club. I cannot imagine for one second that it's a nice place to work. Sterile, no job security, bitterness, one wrong word and you're out. Is it any wonder we are not performing on the field?
