I do get your point and it is frustrating, mainly when you see certain other clubs recruiting stars willy-nilly.Ok you got me again....BUt you can get my thoughts on this...Cant you????...Since 2014 we have Sweet FA to show in recruitment
Marty and Dylan Walker, in 2016, are the only genuine big names we've lured since signing Jamie Lyon for 2007. (And Dylan was cut-price after his OD episode and Souths letting him go)
I presume our strategy, as it is for most clubs, is to build around a few top quality players by developing and improving the other players, and for those who can't improve, selectively replacing them with better players bit by bit over 2 or 3 years.
That's how Des did it with Manly initially.
Not his fault of course, but having Turbo hurt so much in recent years has really hurt us.
