Probably nearly everyone at Manly agrees, but to offer him more than one more year was a legitimate issue so I can’t really blame the club or him.
Come on man.. I get what you are saying about heart but that's a big call. Schuster's career hasn't even started and you are writing him off. I would love to keep foz for another year but cap space doesn't allow it. Ideally get rid of DCE, keep foz and shoe and spend the cap space vacated by DCE to work some magic.
I'm not writing him off. I know Schu well, have seen his talent first hand, and want him to succeed. However, when it comes to Manly, I put all that to one side because the thing I value more than anything on a football field, is guts. Outside of Jake, no one comes close to Foran in terms of playing with Manly spirit. It's a special ingredient that only few possess and it trumps all others. I'll never enjoy a piece of Schuster magic as much as seeing Foran leave absolutely nothing in the tank. It's inspiring, both in a footballing sense, and a way to approach life...he is the epitome of champion!Come on man.. I get what you are saying about heart but that's a big call.

Shoe is still young and impressionable. If he sees D(Captain)E doing it then well it doesn't really send a message on game control. I think Des has no control over DCE. No one does. DCE has a lifetime contract Des and the rest of the team don't. That's where the selfishness of DCE and arrogance shines through. He has very little heart. He is all for personal glory. And to be honest I am starting to tire of him and his overblown ego and salary.Des needs to get both DCE and Schuster under control. They are both loose cannons on the field.
Schuster is still a work in progress, he needs to pick the right time in attack to use the no-look pass, and supplement it with a dummy and go yourself or just your old draw and pass link up with the backs. Next season no Foz, it's all him, I've got faith in him to be that player that we all know he can be.Obviously Des hasn't spoken to Shuster about his repetitive no look passed that fools nobody other than his own team mates. Or his lazy prima donna attitude on the field. Because it is constantly repeated. Why not?
Shuster just keeps making the same mistakes over and over. I'm not sure how smart he is.
Also, he doesn't bounce back well after longish stints on the sideline after injury. Here's hoping he gets more game time from now on. As much as he gets bagged on here he's still a great weapon for us when a game needs that special moment that only Schuster can bring.Schuster had a great season last year but unfortunately injury has affected his ability to train, which has resulted in him putting on some weight, which in turn has prevented him from stringing together a few matches & develop some consistency.
He'll be right once he gets more minutes under his belt & more miles in his legs.
