And we're still waiting for Baz to "learn" and drop PooWelcome to game 1, 2018. TBH was there a point in that game that you thought... Send in Winterstein and Poo ?
I think Frankie turned up in xtra time.
Poo should have been in reggies, and Perret/Frank should have been in the rotation.
Live and learn.
It was like watching Newcastle play Newcastle.. I'm sure we can do better than this. I just don't get the feeling the team has the same will to win we used to have. I miss the likes of Jamie Lyon Geeing the boys up to put some effort in & win the game. We seem to lack leadership. Been that way for a while now. Hope this was a wake up call.Its not panic stations yet however, what kills me is that this is more than a simple first up loss. Newcastle will give away a cheap 2 points to most of the teams in the comp so that loss will compound on us all year. We were putrid and direction less, I can only hope we hit a vein of form like we did last year. Croker took absolutely zero pressure off DCE and seeing as the kick DCE missed could have won us the game we need a f098ingh kicker!!!! Big improvement needed against Parra next week.
Lets get this straight feathered friend!!!
Take it easy feathered friend , its only one game and we cant judge players and coaches on one game for the whole season .Spot on, I am half way through watching the second time. This loss is 100% on us, we are a poorly coached team that were better than the opposition.
You do realise we “ tried “ to do that this year as well don’t you?Game went as expected.. Im not disappointed overly cos i just knew it was coming.. Manly are the definition of an average team this year... Some great players mixed with average players.. And our bench is absolutely attrocious... We will beat top teams, we will lose to crap teams, we will be middle of the road all season long.. Maybe next year we will splurge on a 5/8
I nearly had to call Mr Samsung for a new tv but now I have calmed downPenalty count is insane. **** this
That 2 points will be the difference between making the 8 and not. Feel free to throw this back at me then.Take it easy feathered friend , its only one game and we cant judge players and coaches on one game for the whole season .
We have a long season ahead of us . Lets hope its a good one !!!
Shoulda bought toddy... If its true the board said to stop chasing him then we deserve to lose. I have a few die hard raiders fans who all laughed at me when Manly bought croker, and doubled down laughing when we named him starting 6... Manly with cherry trying to do everything isnt gonna see finals footyYou do realise we “ tried “ to do that this year as well don’t you?
