It’s time for us all to move on, accept that for now it is what it is and get behind whoever is going to fill in.

Recriminations about the why’s , how’s , where’s are getting us nowhere.

Bring on round 1, and I’ll be supporting whoever it is in the number 1 jumper.
Good point feathered friend
Let us not condemn past performances of 2020 but encourage 2021 the new year hope and possibilities

THEY SAY WHAT DOES NOT KILL US MAKES US STRONGER AND MENTALLY TOUGHER

ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THE COME BACK WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION AS IT IS ALWAYS MORE STRONGER THAN THE SET BACK

THE BEST IS YET TO COME

BRING IT ON TURBO AND PROVE THE DOUBTERS WRONG !!!

Umm

this is terrible
This could never have happened in my day
hiw could someone one be so silly
Harry is a disgrace
Dock turbo and move him to centre
He is damaged stock
Let’s get some value
Trade him in

ummmm

did we ever allegedly have another full back with the same pedigree that was allegedly out for a short period with a hamstring strain after coming up sore at training the day after the battle of brookvale where a bro allegedly ran 50 metres to help a bro going toe to toe with by a drizzle jerk off

at the time he was seen rightly as a champion

fair dinkum all you manly champions
All is not lost

Get off turbo’s back and let him prove to us he is another champion that is full of class
Not long back he was seen as pivotal to the NSW and Oz team

If he beat Harry and we were there we would of cheered the house down but never fear, Parker and the boys have said they will never have fun again
That’s it never again

My biggest problem with the whole Turbo hand wringing misery is that it shows we still think of ourselves as a one man team. It's time for this to stop. Every other team doesn't have Turbo and they seem to do alright relying on 17 other players. We have some real gooduns. Time for them to step up and the coaching staff to get it figured.

Still can not get away from the reality that Turbo being at his best can regularly provide an X factor that simply does make that vital difference and those win - loss ratios are with or with out his presence , a pretty stark indication . Same with Snake and the list would go on . Only so much that a side can do to compensate for having a key player out , certainly not totally dependent on a player of Turbo 's ability but always a bit of a handicap when he is absent . To have the next best in his position is the challenge , hope the next couple of weeks will result in a good outcome in that regard .

Well we are used to playing without him lately. The big difference this year is we have added Foran, Saab, Tuipilotu, Harper. Guys like Schuster, Olakau-atu will get more game time. Guys like Birt, Burbo, Weekes and Koula are nearly ready.
We have so much more potency this year that we should be able to cover the loss of Turbo

If we can stay in touch during his absence we’ll be fine 3/6 might be ok , if we are 0/6 you can virtually miss a top 8 position goodbye.

We just have to have faith

Funa is a good trier there , did have some issues with defensive reads , maybe he can get a bit better., Harper could make a good go of it , Koula has plenty or raw , natural talent , if he can show something special tonight , could even be considered but maybe not quite ready . Is surely going to come into i st grade calculations as the season progresses however .

With Koula and Weekes well and truly ready next year we certainly will have some strike and plenty of depth out wide. No doubt Taufua will be gone nextbyear and I've got my money on Walker also a certainty to be gone!
Also not sure we will hang on to Siro, too many young guys to upgrade and retain.
With Taufua, Walker and Siro departing we should be able to keep the rest of the squad together for the next 4 seasons and many of them beyond that. Im confident we are heading into another decade of dominance!

I like that positivity and if that new talent is used to the best effect , will go a long way to improve results and make up for Turbo 's absence in the early stages .

guess that you are suggesting that Tippy Toes will be a serious centre contender soon . Doubt that Manly will be offering Walker anything more contract wise going forward , can still not discount that he can return to his best and that could be a factor but looks like Suli and Tippy Toes are definitely going to be in Manly 's plans going forward . Weekes still has to perform at a higher level but Schuster and Weekes and Koula[ [ and Olokau - atu ] are the type of young players who should be in the highest priority list to keep long term . That is when the premiership window will be really open and along with the more established players and other up and comers who can be part of it as well .

Agree budgewoi eagle
We need to believe that
Turbo is a huge bonus and game changer
Needs to be not thought as a necessity for victory but one that can enhance a win

Haven't been around very much lately and just reading this thread.

Wow.

Could be worse - he could of signed of with Roosters for $400k because he wants to play in a team that wins a Grand Final.
