    this post hit what I was thinking the other day on the head
    I also think Crusher had a real lot to do with it as well
    I think he is silently doing his thing in the background advising Dessie

    "experts Ben Ikin and Laurie Daley"

    Wow....I never thought I'd see those words adjacent to each other in a sentence without the words "bum love" preceeding them.

    We are the only team in the last 30 years to win a grand final in each decade which makes us the best club in the last 30 years or so case closed.

    ponti that would be 4 decades of dominance :D

    manly will be in the top 4 again, it just isn't in dessies nature the let them slacken off. Loss of menzies is huge to moral week in week out. should be interestingf

    brisbane is the boggy team, no bennet, but they can truly win any game they want with lockyer hunt and hodges playing behind a true forward pack

    Who cares if people write us off we are the Premiers. And we will make it back to back titles in 09. There's always going to be some Manly haters, or so called experts writing us off that's their problem the trophy is back in Gods country where it belongs.

    Seriously after watching the replay we are going to be very hard to beat next year. Gaining as much as we lose.

    I think Brisbane will be the BIG improver...don't forget Filou as well!!!

    IMO I reckon we'll finish in the top 2 again, maybe even first, the loss of Beaver will be great BUT don't forget everyone wrote us off when we lost Ben Kennedy and then everyone wrote us off again when we lost Monna's.

    The Manly "Team" (and I don't mean the players) that surround Dessie are smart buggars....or should I use the wrod "driven". They'll love what they experienced this year and want it again!!!

    Sadly, that isn't how it works. Otherwise Melbourne would've won this year. Everything fell into place for us in 2008, and that's what you need to win a comp. Just like the Tigers in '05 (no injuries, everything clicked), Penrith (no injuries), Brisbane (everything fell into place after it looked like it was falling apart!!) etc.

    2008 was our year, no doubt about it. But the fact that Melbourne couldn't go back to back....that tells me that we've got a whole lot of work ahead of us if we're going to.

      You underestimate what the loss of Bennett means to them.  I expect their players will make the Bullwogs look like angels next year.
