    The Wheel has been hard at work writing articles on ex-players for us.

    You can find these at http://www.alternateeagles.com/content.php?article.cat.139

    He has been doing a tops job and I invite everyone to write some of these up and submit them.

    Thanks wheel!

    Good one on Snoz Wheel- he was my favourite player and the reason I have no. 4 as my favourite number.
    I cried when we got beat by Illawarra in that last game of the season- not so much because we were out for the year but because it was the last time we would see the legend grace us with his presence at Fortress Brookvale.
    I used to practise his trademark chip and chase all the time but could never pull it off in a game.

    No problems - I have a couple more in the pipeline which should be up in the next day or 2. If anyone has any requests for player profiles let, jot the players name on this thread and I will see what I can do.

    Bruce Walker was someone I thought was great and Johnny Gibbs was superb with his socks down.

    Ian Martin and Dale Shearer are two of my all time Manly favourites.

    There is another one on Dave Brown - it has a bit of a Matabele's 'hard edge' to it!
