How boring is Manly to watch!

Post by AndTheKungFoSing » Mon 15 Mar, 2010 10:29 pm

I think I would rather watch Cronulla... I think they are more entertaining! It was like watching the Roosters play 2 years ago...

One man out... one many out... one man out.... one many out (offload maybe).... one man out.... bomb

BORING!

Did they run the ball once on the last? Did they spread it wide at any stage of the game? I seriously do not remember them doing so if they did.
I hate South Sydney.... immensely

Mate doesn't change the fact it's crap! The overweight forwards and grubs will only last so long. You guys are in for a long season, we didn't even hit second gear tonight and played 20mins of footy.

You noticed that too? I thought we looked a little heavy!

Could be a long season with the injuries, maybe it's time for young hoppa to step up into fb?

Mate if Rose is 115kg... then I'm only 25kg... surely he's pushing 125kg+

TBH... I don't forwards win you matches like they once did... That's why Souths will struggle big time this year. You guys have the talent but it's my opinion that you play far too conservative.

ShalL, i compare our "for" stats for the past few years? Could be interesting!

Rose definately needs a pin in his other leg now to support that weight. But agree, with the pace of the game surely lighter is better....but then again, all the prem winners of late have had large packs.

Cronulla vs Melb... It does not get much more boring then that.

As much as it pains me, id rather watch Manly.

St George did it, The sharks cant do anything but it and Manly tried to do--Just play a boring simple game plan based on five one out hit ups and than the Hail Mary bomb. Round one game plan. Manly like Souths will get better as the season goes on and barring injuries will be strong at the back end of the season. But gee they would love a Benji

I thought they looked pretty impressive for most of the game. It was only when our backs cut loose in the second half that we made them look pedestrian. Definitely seen more conservative teams.

I found them boring to watch too. I thinks its because they like to bomb, especially to the wings. Teams that do that, do it regularly.
