Watching the Storm v Panthers game and the difference in the way they play the game is so much faster it’s depressing.

Watching us play is the equivalent of watching a Park Over 45’s game next to a NRL game.

Everything both the Storm & Panthers do is at speed and high energy. Players are all constantly in motion.

We are so far behind the top teams.

How long will it take for any new coach to change this around. I fear we are still years away.

It is very depressing. We are last for good reason. But a good coach and the right team can make a difference quickly. I’m starting to lose faith that the people in charge will make tough decisions needed though.

I’m very serious. Head of Physical Performance at Manly during the Barrett reign of terror, 2016-18.
Not being facetious, but do you think our lack of ability (and Manlys 2026 -18) maybe more down to Ferris rather than all on Barrett. Just a thought.

If TB wants to survive he needs to get results quick.

He Is griping about player performance, so he better put some teeth into it and start dropping players.

The coaching staff are obviously not up to it. Who are we moving on TB?

Drop the nice guy and take action.

Two quality sides .. even Melbourne missing players an looking lost an getting well smashed still played with speed.
Very depressing knowing we don’t have that and haven’t for a very long time.

also just a mention.. a player like Blake Taafe and or Walsh would give our bulldogs something very Amazing which again.. we lack.Other teams just seem to find an gel players, we can’t seem to do that..!!

I rate Walsh. Taafe not so much. Walsh would be an unbelievable signing but we still need a 7

I guess with how even Storm struggled with their 7 missing, it shows how important a good spine is.

Any wonder we struggle. We only have Burton....1 in 4 (a quarter, or 25% of a spine) in every single game.
