    When does pre-season training start? I'm already bored by Manly's off-season. I want to know the lads are running sandhills, chasing 2006 glory!

    They started early November last year from memory?

    I believe it will be November again this year Mata.I read that Orford and Bell were looking foward to starting training with the team in November.

    I actually didn't pay too much attention - but did either Orford or Bell make the training squad for the Roo tour? I suspect not.

    It'd be good for them to have a full off-season with us to settle in, rather than freeze their butts of warming the bench in England, shake hands with all the players before the first trial and start with the club that way.

    Not that it hurt Kennedy this year I guess.

    Quite a long year of training isn't it. Some of these chaps put there bodies on the line for an ordinary salary while others swan around like millionairs.

    Thats life I guess.

    Let's hope they have a big Oktoberfest and come back with their heads screwed on to play football then.

    Craig Wing was struggling to hold his 1st grad spot this season.

    Hardly a rep player in his current form?

    Eels fan at the newsagent this morning was spitting chips because the doctors had cleared Hindmarsh to play last weekend but Smith over ruled them as he didn't want to risk him for the GF.

    He'd be spewing! They certainly could have done with him out there. Good call Smith!

    Interesting to see Smith is on borrowed time.

    I guess the Eels must have an awful lot of people that aren't true supporters.

    No - I think it's a matter that people who live around Parramatta can be realists. Remember the year they came 6th. The crowd were petitioning to have him Smith removed.
