If Manly can keep their principal players on the field (DCE, Jake, Turbo, Schuster, Olakau'atu, Koula, Garrick) we'll make the 8 in a canter. Lose two or three of them over a long stretch, and I suspect we'll be also rans.
We already have 2 of those gone

Oh I've gone onto stage 5 of grief - acceptance.
Have already been through
1. Denial - the Knights game
2. Anger - the Penrith massacre
3. Bargaining - Storm , Tigers games
4. Depression - Titans into Broncos.
5. Acceptance - we are dogsh*t again.
Currently trending five @mickqld However, I am more than capable of going one through five by halftime tomorrow. Go Manly.

I'm probably in denial. I think they have the cattle to get us a meat pie, but no good if they come up lame all the time. If Spud turns out a miracle worker with Schuster, lets call for the High Performance team to look for another place to perform their miracles and make Spud our fitness specialist. Yeh.

Seriously we have demonstrated today we are doing nothing finals wise this year. Mestrov changes have had zero impact in relation to on field performance. 2023 This is a big fat fail ( At least so far) Gee our coach falls a sleep at Mcdonald’s. Says it all.

Time to call a spade a spade.

We are a very poorly coached football side. I really had hope that seibold and Flannagan could team up and do something special but so far it's been really really poor.

I'm the first to admit I'm was team Des.

He was fired so I whole heartedly embraced the new management but the one thing I was afraid of looks to be happening. My take was always if we did dump Des then whatever came next had to be better but also have upside.

We ended up with a bloke who was so damaged he couldn't get a coaching gig in League and ended up an assistant in Union. The other bloke may as well have spiders all over him given the NRL's dislike for him after the peptides and cheating scandals.

I hear you say.... we were second in the comp. We could have been in the top 6 tonight had we won. Yes that's true. BUT it's true because this season the form line is all over the shop. The big dogs are faltering. The hot up and comers from last year are tipping over themselves. We beat a Bunnies side that hadn't clicked and we're pretty poor in the early season. We beat a Storm side without Pappenhausen and Munster in the 1 jersey(thank christ) that night. We just beat the West tigers wo hadn't won all year. The slime are a shadow of their former selves and we beat the bye.just.

It's true we have had injuries but so have all the other teams.

My final thought is we look a lot worse than midseason last year.
After Tom's injury and the big reshuffle we started playing some tough respectable footy. Before rainbowgate we were on track to make the 8 without Tom or shoe really.

Even in the dark days last year we still had an attack. Yes our defence end of year was shocking but we had shape and could score some points.

This year we have no shape. We have no ability to create the extra man. We have no punch up the middle. We have nothing.

Poor DCE is having a great year because we have nothing else.

Unless the Shoe comes back and started killing it we could easily be pulled into a fight for the spoon with a side that should be in the top 6 easy.

Cant we operate in the greys. a gauge between extremes of totally pessimistic and totally optimistic. Like over the past two weeks I was quite pessimistic about Manly's chances in both games. This week I'm slightly on the optimistic side and if Manly can retain something like that team I suspect my optimism may blossom. Terrible when you rely on injuries to get the better players (in my opinion) on the field. I wonder who has to be injured to get Chan in there?

Lets hope we get that much needed win and turn our season around
And build on more wins from there
Other wise we arn't going anywhere into the top 8

I’m still hanging in, but only by a thread. Tomorrow could be last chance saloon for me.

I'm surprised - and impressed - that there's still anybody left with a shred of optimism when it comes to the performances of this organisation and team. But if you are one of the 72% who are still smiling (whether that's aided by prescription medication or not), more power to you. I wish I could join you, but I've always been more of an evidence-based than a faith-based kinda guy.

The Optimistic / Pessimistic Perspective

Optimistic based on our underachieving results ZERO
Optimistic based on the faith from our Manly never say die spirit 100%
There is still time to turn our season around
