Think that your expectations are too low , have some faith in the power of positive thinking and no short cuts .
Man does not live on bread alone
and Man does not succeed on belief and faith alone as belief and faith without execution is only a delusion

We must Focus with our eagle eyes on the precise execution of our goals and plans and the execution of the opposition players on the field as we cannot win on Just pure emotion . We win on execution.

Personally I have a good feeling about 2021 for Manly.

Sure I may be biased but if we have a much better run with injuries this year, especially to players like Tommy and Walks, there is no reason why we can't win the premiership.

Said it before and I'll say it again ..... we are at best a 10th to 12th squad. Other teams have improved their teams more than us. TT won't last the season, not a chance, put a fork in him he's done. KF will play 5 to 8 games. When they're gone then we're left with almost the same duds filling the same positions as last year. We've lost our best forward, our hooker will be lucky not to go to gaol and our idiot 5/8 or centre will be lucky not to miss the first 4 rounds for not liking his pizza and no offence to our new recruits they are unwanted jettison from **** clubs like the Tigers or Dragons. We're so far off the pace that it is not funny. The spend of our salary cap has ****ed us for the foreseeable future.

I love the optimism and I'll still watch but we're ****ed. Nothing can save us.

I have a good feeling as well. Wombat64 does not agree

I pray that you are correct and I am wrong. No one will be happier.
We have a good team.. some of the best players in the game. We just need some luck with injuries. If you are going to pray may i suggest a pilgrimage to the holy land :) we may need a miracle ! Go forth Wombat64 go forth:wedding:

Don't forget we have Olakau'atu burbo & Schuster to look forward to

Happy new year @Wombat64 and I hope the new year has got off to a great start for you

This is the forum where we all express our feelings and thoughts and after what we have been through recently I can understand your catastrophic thoughts of all our four wheels are going to fall off and our team will fall apart again .

Nothing in life accept for tax and death is Guaranteed to happen
Let us than not focus on "what if" and what may never happen
Let us focus on the moment ."What is" and What we have

What is so wonderful and optimistic about What we have ?
We have TT back and in full flight and stronger than ever
We have what was missing for many years. An experienced and dominant play maker in KF
We have the most exciting young player in the game and he needs no introduction
We have replaced the dominant AFB with another dominant player in Aloiai who has just as many tatts as AFB and as much mongrel .
We have signed some exciting young players with real speed and we should also be excited to have our best centre Walker playing in the position he excels best in
We have big hopes that our start hooker will be free to play this year and in the mean time Des has a few options to uncover .
Last and not least we have Des who is a club Legend and who must be very Disappointed but also very Determined to get our team doing what a Manly team does best and that is competing for another Manly title .

There is a true saying that Our Focus determines our Reality
So , let us all focus on the possibilities of success and not the potential of failure

Good night feathered and before you go to bed do not take a bex
Take viagra and you will have a much better time

Anyone with a bit more insight know how many more top 30 spots are still available for Manly . Think that it was mentioned previously that it was at least one more spot but that may be outdated now . Maybe to promote one or two development squad members after the trials or could be still some money in the cap to bring in someone who may fill a void if one occurs in the hooker department for instance . Again surely by now that would have already happened .and will be making a tilt for a final"s position somewhere with what is presently on the books .
