    Every game from here is the MIGOTY, win all three and we could finish as high as 10th.

    Even two wins and results going our way could see this happen.

    And a much better launching pad for 2019.

    And the secret , despite what others keep saying is keeping the same 17 or as close as possible week in week out!!

      I hope Elegy is picked for Tits, as he is already our whipping boy.

        Be funny if he plays and absolutely tears us a new one.

        Wonder what the haters will say then??

            Imagine winning 3 whole games in a row. I'm worried Barrett's comments about threatening to leave may disrupt this group who seem to have a penchant to using off field issues as an excuse these days.

                What haters are these ?

                Seen a few comments re his obvious defensive issues, nothing too harsh though.
                I think 99% of Manly fans would support the guy, if he has a red hot go.

                  It’s the nature of Silvertails at the moment.

                  Just have a read of the thread and you’ll see it shining through.

                  With the Twenty exit ( so we believe) and so much on the line this game worries me.

                  I had picked us in the tipping BUT am almost at the point of changing it to the Gold Coast.

                      Twenty is not going anywhere who in their right mind are going to sign him with his record over the last 3 years. He is bluffing.

                        https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/08/14/manly-warringah-sea-eagles-v-gold-coast-titans-round-23-preview/


                        The battle among teams to avoid the wooden spoon is almost as intriguing as what's happening at the top end of the Telstra Premiership ladder.

                        This Friday night clash brings together the 12th and 13th-placed teams, both with 7-14 records.
                        Sitting just one win behind the Sea Eagles and Titans in a three-way tie for last place are the Cowboys, Bulldogs and Eels - all desperate to avoid finishing at the bottom of the pile.

                        So with that in mind, this game should be more intense than what you might normally expect from a 12 v 13 duel.

                        The Sea Eagles are coming off a home win over the Bulldogs,while the Titans let a match-winning lead slip in a golden point loss to Penrith.

                        Key match-up: AJ Brimson looked right at home in his first game at fullback for the Titans and it remains to be seen if the spot will be his going forward into next season. He'll face a great test in trying to match it with in-form Manly fullback and NSW Origin star Tom Trbojevic this week.

                        For the Sea Eagles to win: As mentioned, 'Turbo Tom' has been great since returning from a triumphant Origin series in which he was one of the standout performers for NSW. Daly Cherry-Evans has also played well and if the pair maintains their recent form Manly should come away with a victory.

                        For the Titans to win: Have to feel for Garth Brennan and the Titans after last week's golden point loss. Despite clearly being the better team for a large majority of the game, they still lost, giving up a try in literally the final second of regulation time. So the simple lesson here is to follow one of rugby league's oldest adages - play for 80 minutes.

                        Sea Eagles Stat Attack: The Titans will have to tie up Martin Taupau every time he carries the ball, though it might be easier said than done. The Sea Eagles prop leads the NRL in off-loads with 64, with Andrew Fifita (62) second.

                        Titans Stat Attack: Crafty Ash Taylor knows how to create for his teammates, with his 17 try assists tying him with Johnathan Thurston and Luke Keary in first place. But Taylor doesn't always get it right - his 17 handling errors are also the most in the NRL.

                        And another thing: If the Titans don't win this one, they might not win again this year given they host the Storm and Cowboys in the final two rounds. The same could be said for Manly, with road games against the Wests Tigers and Broncos to close out their 2018 campaign.

                        Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles v Gold Coast Titans, Friday 6pm at Lottoland

                        Head-to-head: Played 17; Sea Eagles 1 wins, Titans 7 wins

                        Toss of the coin, Trent stays or comes out and refutes he’s leaving we win, Trent resigns today and I fear the players will toss the towel in and we will get dusted 3 games in a row and potentially win our first spoon!!

                          That's what i think too, Hopefully TB and the Club sot it out sooner rather than later. If he announces he is staying and that the club will back him with what he wants you'll have ppl upset here but at least the players will use it to drive home a win. If he announces he is leaving then apart from being very poor timing we will get the spoon with Wests and Broncos to run up cricket scores to ensure they make it/get into the finals.

                          Never a boring time being a Sea Eagle supporter that's for sure.

                              Blake Green's defence wasn't all that great either, but he went alright and so did we when he was here.

                              DCE and LG as a halves combination could work and I'm hoping it does. LG isn't the greatest defender, but not everyone is a Jake Trbojevic. And besides that I don't believe he's been signed because of his defence. Its more about giving DCE an experienced halves partner who can run (sorry Hodko).
