I really think he'll stay at the Storm for 1 more year and then go to the Gold Coast. All the Monaghan whinging and moaning would turn anybody off - that whole saga was poorly handled by all and in my mind the main reason he has not yet signed. Max should stay of the team management and selections!
If I had an offer from the Roosters and one from Souths I would head to the Roosters.
Orford has the following to choose from
Manly: Screwed him over once and not offering the same amount as others
Melbourne: he has been looking to leave them for the last 2 years and now cant offer him as much as Manly
Souths: Crap team but offering a very decent retirment fund there
I am confident that it will be between us and pommie land....
I did hear he was in the bag until this whole Monas thing got out of hand! I'm not going to diss Monas for it because the press looks to have twisted alot of his statements (making them hard to believe) but the situation could've been handled alot better by his manager and maybe one Manly offical jumping the gun.
You would love to know what happened behind the scenes wouldn't you? Hard to know which way this will go. I am desperate as I reckon it is the only way we have a hope of being a contender in the next few seasons!
didnt we have a poll like this in the middle of that fiasco a while ago asking people who they would rather have in the number 7 jersey followed by some serious gloating re the results which favoured a certian candidate 80/20.as the old saying goes -never wish too hard,you might get what you wish for.and if matty doesnt sign we are certian to get a real biiiiiggggggg sloooooooow dose of it.and for that vast anonymous 80%-enjoy the ride.........
who are you.......come out come out wherever you are........yoohoo....where are you.........wwwhhhheeerrreee aaarrrrreeeee yyyyoooouuuuuuuu.........................
and the answer i hear."but we really wanted both,we really did.we never said matty couldnt play.matty is a great player,he really is.monas would be great at hooker.please matty,pleeeaaaassssseeeee!!!!!!
and if you think im gloating now.well,you are dead ****ing wrong.im angry !if we dont get a new half you apologists for mediocrity deserve him for that media and banaghan driven crap that dragged max out of his cave.you deserve him.......too bad the mighty sea eagle club doesnt.
Well lucky for you chaps Monas form slumped significantly since round 10. Remember we lost bugger all games when the debate started and you were guilty of not giving Monas credit for the good start to the season.
Sue & Matabele it's very difficult to take people serious who simply CANNOT give credit were its due. Therefore this is why we all poo pooed your views on Monas at the time.
The only thing you can gloat about is having nostradamis like visions because most thinking people couldn't see the form slump and monasgate which has currently happened.
Surely you donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t think Monas was re-signed because of people reactions on forums??????? (please answer that btw)
I think the press had allot to do with it by constantly pressuring stupid comments out of CUMMINGS and MONAS. This therefore had to be extinguished by max! If Cummings said nothing this may havenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t of happened!
i thought everyone sprooked his leadership as his greatest quality......... huh leadership he couldnt run a greasy pole up a cows ass at the moment or before....any way keep defending because you guys have got your wish and 3yrs with monas........ wooohoo
