Jake has been well below his dominant best playing in the Manly coloursAdd Jake to your soft list. He might make 50 takes. But he often doesnt even
win his own forward contest? Needs to be individually more dominant running the ball.
It probably won’t gel overnight either so we are going to have to be patient.The biggest challenges that Seibold faces is to bring the squad together and end the factions that divided and killed our 2022 season.
We need an emphasis on defence as we were woeful in that area last season and too many times conceded consecutive tries and our resilience was non existent in the end of the season.
We have to manage games better, this is a significant weakness we have and until we improve that we are going to struggle especially against the top teams.
I also hope to see failure not being rewarded and young players given a sustained chance to cement a future.
We have pretty much been written off by most critics in the game. I expect a moderate start as the team needs time to gel and get better as the season kicks on!
Don't you mean Bronco.In my opinion Seib's biggest challenge is to get the monkey off his back.
Attitude can fix that too , attitude to be working as one , to be fitter, to make winning everything.Others have said it, but fitness is the key imo. Line speed in defence, three instead of two in the tackle to slow the ruck down (legitimately), and more bodies in motion in attack will see us improve dramatically. But these three team attributes only happen if everyone is extremely fit.
I agree. Until we start winning, it will take a lot for us fans to forget last year’s own goals, self-implosion and perceptions of self-interest.Attitude can fix that too , attitude to be working as one , to be fitter, to make winning everything.
The attitude last year was “ who gives a **** , certainly not me “.
Honestly , if the attitude changes and they are trying their guts out , even if they lose I’d be happy.I agree. Until we start winning, it will take a lot for us fans to forget last year’s own goals, self-implosion and perceptions of self-interest.
Said in jest, but for me his greatest challenge is to gain the backing of the fans to allow him the time to imprint his DNA on the team. That's game plan and personnel.Pleasing all Silvertails
The Manly Competitive Perspective ...We play Eels, Bunnies, Panthers and Storm in our first 6. We need to at least be competitive in these or its gonna be a long season.

I don't expect results to really improve until 2025.
I'm ok with this, because this is the first time in a while I have seen the club come together and strategise a long term plan for success.
I hope that both he, and the owners can stay the distance because it won't be easy to withstand the pressure.
