People are worried because for the first time this year we're expected to, and should win
That would cover it

Maybe the club needs to recruite someone to help change the culture within the fan base. :)

I am nervous about this game where I probably shouldn't be. We have played 3 great games against teams who are strong. This week we face parra who have had a bad start and don't look like bouncing back and I'm more nervous about this game than I was the previous 3.

We are a product of our environment. By the end of this year I'm hoping I'm cured.

I can definitely see where this nervousness comes from , given our history. However if we play the style of game we have been playing , it’s not going to be a football exhibition but it will be too much for Parra to handle.
Our scramble has been next level. Against the Broncos we had 40 missed tackles yet the Bronco had 2 line breaks. Work that out? We had so many bodies around the ball.

Easy there were 38 where a player simply dropped off in the tackle but was well contained by the defenvce thus constituting a miss tackle stat and 2 where they got through the line yet again covered by scramble..

stats he gotta love em..

Yep we generally get up for big games (Cowboys at Leichhardt last season - do well against Melbourne, etc) and generally are disappointing in winnable games. This season has a very different feel about it though. I don't think they will be taking any team lightly.

Every game this year is hard.

How can Manly thrash Parra one week and hold them try less then the next week get thrashed by the bunnies without Reynolds?

Believe we can beat Parramatta in the forwards. I think they are a better team without Hayne. Need to smash Moses and Norman early so they go into their shells. Both confidence players.

Parra on paper have a weak pack.

They are missing Sammie on the wing big time. He was worth at least 2 tries a game.

Jennings and Hayne are playing on pass glories and a shadow of their former selves

Ahh the weight of expectation... let's hope the players aren't feeling it as they need to show up with exactly the same attitude as the first couple of rounds.

If they do, we'll win.

This game will answer a lot of questions Imo ... has the team finally turned the losers tag around .. is this team up for the weekly battle , are they going to turn up on Monday and kick the proverbile or will it be like all the other seasons of late and get pumped by a sub standard team.Yes a couple of close wins but Monday will tell the story if things have really changed at Concord.

No matter the year, no matter the team, we always have struggled against parramatta. Well that's my recollection anyway, so it's only natural for tigers fans to be anxious over this one.

The EELS are a confidence team. All they need is one win to get them going and that win hopefully won't be against us.
