I have lost interest again. Manly need to impress me this week to win me back. I won't be watching the game or listening. I only like watching and listening to good things that make me happy.
Lifes like a box of chocolates Daniel....and you know the rest.

Think that there was a very likely valid stat mentioned by someone before the Storm game , 8 wins out of 13 remaining fixture games required to make the eight , [ 7 out of 12 then on that prediction then no doubt ] with the Panthers loss now 7 out of 11 required .
Loss against the Dragons , then presumably 7 from 10
Someone with a keener interest in stats than me will probably know the answer to this, but when was the last time we won 8 games out of 13? That's a 61% winning percentage. Again, when was the last time we had a 61% winning percentage? Sure, it's possible. But is it really likely to happen?

Can anyone tell me if the all Players, Coach and everyone involved in the club read any of our compliant or its just us and all going on deaf ears. Bit of a waste of time if not, might as well go back to whinging to my cats and fish.
When Hasler was coaching the team, all the brilliant strategies from the forum members (some more than others) for each round according to the team they were facing up too, were compiled together and sent via FAX to Hasler's personal facsimile machine. So the story goes...

What?? If you skip most of the dribble on here, what do you look at? The pop up advertising with girls in skimpy dresses and bikinis?

So it was more enjoyable when Manly was the wealthy club always at the top?

I bet Wests, Norths, Newtown and Souths fans didnt see the fun it back then.

Just saying.
Wasn't as such that we were a wealthy club, we were a successful club that players from other clubs always wanted to come to us, and in a lot of cases even for less money if it gave them the chance for higher honours.
In those days we had a Leagues Club that always backed us to the hilt, and the LC today is only a shadow of what it once was.
Norths were always a wealthy club however struggled to attract players except for a brief period in the mid nineties.

Each to their own, you gotta do what works best for you.

But personally, I can't get behind this sort of support.

We are not exactly starting with a premiership-winning front row, it is a bit startling seeing Brown at 10. However he will be in a great mood following his well-deserved extension and will take a back step to nobody, bless him. Nevertheless I think we will struggle with metres in the middle. A lot will be on Big Man Tent.

A sunny Sunday at Brooky, I got a hopeful feeling. Go You Eagles!

Just need extra impact from, Sips and Bully to make up for the loss of Ailoia.

It's perplexing at its best and scary its at worse; it's borderline hedonism to only engage with the game when everything is going well. It defies the natural order of the universe; day and night, yin and yang, fire and water, good and evil, life and death, and Manly winning and losing!

2021. We had a run of games close to this in 2022, but then lost the last 7 consecutively.
