Im hoping that our collective coaching brains trust and the absence of the Furor will result in the players feeling they will get a shot if good enough.
Lets hope Seibold gives him and other talented players a chance to shineLet’s hope he gets a chance to shine
Lets hope Seibold gives him and other talented players a chance to shine
Lets Hope Seibold is not like the predictable Des
De's predictable game plans and Team selections also predicted his failing and fatal out come in the end
It was very frustrating for the fans . I cant imagine how frustrating it must have been for the players being over looked after each heavy loss .
Des could not Inspire his players or Innovate the change that was needed to get us out of the Flat track bullies rut . Des had the players but he did not have the game plan and apart from some individual brilliance we ran around in circlesTrouble is Bozo they never seem to learn to do what we tell them to do. Obdurate to the end

Des was a players coach and was loyal to his players and his players liked him but the best endorsement players can give a coach is winning for him on the field, and that was not made possible under his coaching
The Legendary Des at his best was a Genius on and off the field but all great things come to an endIts in the genes Bozo. And his was I suspect just a little too tight.
I think that’s the most exciting thing about the changes that have been made , no loyalties.
So many questions at present , must say it’s quite interesting and in a lot of ways exciting.If Weekes is the 14 , he would still expect some reasonable time on the footy field , not that dissimilar to Walker . However Weekes is not and probably never will be a ruck suited type player . Open field or free running type role now and into the future and as he has already shown as a one or six Doubt it would be to sub Croker , hopefully not frequently for any back line position . Bit of a quandary , maybe a question soon could be if josh would be prepared to give 13 a go , probably not at this stage but again how to accommodate an emerging talent like Weekes . Then there is Latu Fainu to probably be given his shot soon , maybe as a 7 but still have D C E for a while yet . Weekes as a centre , a possibility . Koula i st choice centre and then a youngster like Fletcher - Myers to give plenty of encouragement to as well . Quite a reasonable suggestion for Weekes to be the 14 but could be just a very short term option as well .
Well saidI think that’s the most exciting thing about the changes that have been made , no loyalties.
They’ll want to be successful so the best players will be picked and up and comers should be pushing other players constantly , and given a shot if that’s the case.
Certainly some delicate balancing coming up , Weekes , Latu Fainu , Fletcher Myers aren 't there yet but look very promising . Then Josh [ Shu ] is still some way off realizing his full potential , Then i look to a couple of the young forwards like Tuitavake and Fifita , possibly Zac Fulton who could really go on with it as well . A few ifs or maybes probable outcomes but always so annoying when eventual really good players make it at other clubs and simply were not given the right opportunity at Manly . No doubt applies occasionally at other clubs as well but still something to avoid if feasible . Quite feasible for Manly to give their current up and comers every opportunity to get to the top level with the club and not be restricted by any other past player doubtful considerationsSo many questions at present , must say it’s quite interesting and in a lot of ways exciting.
He’ll need to put in then won’t he ???We have a gluttony of talent coming through. It’s exciting but also don’t think we can fit them all in. I hope we nurture fainu, weekes and koula. Schuster could be anything and I’m glad he’s gonna be first cab off the rank to get his shot coz there’s gonna be a lot of talent coming to dethrone him asap
Des' interview after the Bulldogs game had some pretty good praise for Weekes, I think he was in the plans. I think there's even a chance Des would've preferred Weekes to Schuster as 5/8 if he didn't have internal pressure to donate the 6 to Schuster this year
