    Manly's best ever coach

    This poll is up on the left.

    All of the candidates are absolute legends and I find it hard to pick between them.

    Willey brought Manly's first ever premierships in the 70s and turned a cream puff team with great backs who used to fold in the Semis (like ST G and Parra) into a hard and tough unit.

    Stanton did miracles in both 76 and 78 with spare parts teams.

    Bopzo was great in delivering premierships in 87 and 86 though many claiim that we should have won in 83 after being runawy leaders all year and 95 and 97 we did everything but win the comps - some claim Bozo had the players to do better, though his record as Australian coach was pretty good.

    Lowe never won a comp despite many stars, though he did bring Ridge to the club and gave the polish to Cliffy's game, plus introduced some young guns.

    Ken Arthurson did wonders in the early years to develop the culture that made Manly feared by all the others.

    Hard Choice!!! Vote away.
