So here is my theory about the current state of affairs. The media are under instructions from the NRL to lay the boot in at every possible opportunity against Manly. The reason being is that Parramatta are far worse off than us, and the NRL know it and can't afford bad publicity as it will drive western suburbs fans away to AFL. There is little coverage of the Eels, they are about to sack their coach and are looking to bring in Michael Maguire to review their whole structure. In my opinion the Eels are in a far worse state than what is happening at Manly. They are on track for another wooden spoon and have a near full strength Team on paper running out every week Is it a coincidence that Twatmough has opened his big mouth considering that he last played with the Eels?
