9 questions from manly

Post by Flight » Sun 14 Mar, 2010 1:39 pm

Hi all,

Good to have he football back at last (good to be back perusing this forum too!), even better to be playing the tigs first up! Although it is a shame the game is not being played down at Leichardt.

Just wondering if I could get your opposition opinions on the following? Might cross post responses onto our forums if okay.

If you had to pick a combined 13 from Manly and the Tigs, who would be in it?

What do you think of Hasler as a coach?

Who is your most potent weapon for the upcoming game?

What would be your weakest position?

Have you seen Foran play much?

How do you think Foran compares to other half backs in the comp?

What position do you think the Tigs will finish the regular season in?

What position do you think Manly will finish the regular season in?

Predict the score for Mondays' game?

Many thanks,

Flight

What do you think of Hasler as a coach?
I rate him pretty highly, seems to have a no-nonsense approach, is honest and seems to have good respect from his players, I know I wouldn't want to get on his bad side.

Who is your most potent weapon for the upcoming game?
Depends, Benji can be if he "clicks", but I'd rather have my money on Farah being our best weapon.

What would be your weakest position?
Halfback, Lui is still very much finding his feet, still very fresh to the NRL level.

Have you seen Foran play much?
Not a great deal but every Manly fan I know has pretty high wraps on him so I would not be underestimating him.

How do you think Foran compares to other half backs in the comp?
Can't really judge myself, ask me after 10 rounds.

What position do you think the Tigs will finish the regular season in?
Honestly, 5th-8th imo, injuries will be key as always for us, but we have a little more depth this season than in the past.

What position do you think Manly will finish the regular season in?
I think they will be there come finals time but not quite as high as the last couple of years, I'll say approx 4th or 5th.

Predict the score for Mondays' game?
Heart: Tigers 72-0
Head: Manly 24-20

A question for you Flight - who would you rather play in Round 1?

Ahaha, nice team Geo.

How many of us will travel to tonights game? Well, seeing as most of us have high paying corporate jobs in the city, once we have finished our long lunches there should be quite a few. =)

Tigergirlz, if Round 1 is supposed ot be more about a "local derby" I would be pitting us against

1) Warriors
2) Newcastle
3) Parramatta
before the Tigs.

Would always prefer the slow starting teams in round 1. Certainly Parramatta and Souths though.

How is the crowd looking tonight?

I never really liked orford playing for us, so I am happy he is now gone. Should be great seeing the two youngster halves going at it tonight though. Thank god Foran can kick more than 20m! I think this will mean a vastly different style from Manly this year.

I few of your fellow supporters have picked up on the big difference in Tony Williams year on year...he is going to cuase teams a lot of headaches this year. No surprises it took the guys over a year to fix the poor agility / acceleration he learnt from Parramatta, but by all reports he is now set.

See you guys tonight!

People picking Lui over Foran are mad. Foran played a few FG matches last year and looked quite good.

I have a question for you Mr Des Haesler has your boys got the guts to beat the tigers tonight, because I have a feeling that Lote Tuqirir is going to run over Brett Stewart and the rest of the backs every time and were going to win the match.

Possibly, rumor has it that the wolfman was injured at training today and is out for 6-8 weeks.

I only picked Lui because I think at half back he'd be better than Foran, from what I've seen of Foran is more of a centre/five eigth. If it was 5/8 I'd have Foran over Lui at this stage.

Hasler is a very good coach in my opinion. Incredibly underrated, took a team from wooden spoon contenders to a premeirship in 5 years, by buying a class player every year. A model that lots of other clubs are going by throughout their rebuilding stages

Benji is out biggest weapon, he creates something out of nothing, and is capable of pulling of the freakish plays that no one else can.

The whole right hand side of our attack. Lui has question marks over his head about whether or not he is up to NRL standard yet, Ayshford and Ryan, neither of them are real strike weapons, they will score a try, but will not create something out of nothing.

Haven't seen a lot of him, but from what I have seen, the kid can play.

Not sold on him at halfback, I think he's more a 5/8 from what I've seen. I think the Foran/Lyon combo may struggle to put a lot of points on the board, as I don't see either as an organising player. I can't see them taking control of the game. At this time I see Foran at the bottom end of halfbacks in the NRL, however I may have a different opinion at 9pm tonight after I've seen him go 80 at halfback

6th. Not in the top 4, but still firmly entrenched in the top 8.

11th. Mainly for the reasons I gave about the Foran/Lyon combination. They'll start off slowish but come good towards the end of the season. They'll never look like running last, but probably won't put too much pressure on teams in the 8.

Thank god for that,if he is out for 8 weeks its means there is no way he will get a blues jumper,worst winger ever to play origin
