    Ok, yes I am optimistic, and here is my reasoning:

    * We sit on 10 points, we have a bye after this round, and 9 rounds to go.
    * We have a reasonably easy run home, even for Manly!
    * Next 4 games are not that difficult, H - Dragons, Bye, H- Warriors, A- Rabbits, H- Knights.
    * Win those games and we sit on 20 points, and a bunch of confidence.
    * Parcell to add some spark, Miles to add some defence.
    * Now have A- Eels, A- Dogs, H- Storm, H - Raiders, A- Panthers.

    Sure, everything depends on us not getting further injuries or all bets are off. But I think the Bye has come at a critical time for our wounded troops, and while playing the Eels and Dogs away seems daunting task now, that's 6 weeks away, and it's amazing how things can change when a bit of confidence envelopes.

    All I'm saying is, I'm not throwing the towel in just yet. 26/1 to make the 8 is a price that we have never seen, and may never see again.

    Disclaimer: I am not on the whacky tobaccy, or the sauce, just positive that there won't be any wooden spoon hanging in our trophy cabinet any time soon. And, it's quite possible Trent (yeah nah) Barrett, just may end up being a genius!

        I agree.
        Whilst very much an outside chance, and results do need to go our way, based on Monday nights performance, I have not given up hope.
        $26 just to make the 8 is overs imo.
        This Monday will be telling. Rack up a good win over the Dragons and we may get on that roll.
        If we lose or even win in a tight one, I think we are gone.
        We need to beat the Dragons convincingly if we are fair dinkum.


        PS: I too am an eternal optimist. ;)

          Very optimistic but our season has been of games we should have won and although i will think we can win enough games deep deep down i don't see us making the 8 for that reason above games we should be winning we are loosing

          Whilst we are always a mathematical chance WE you have to maintain the faith.

              At this point, I just want the team to win a whole bunch of games so I can feel happier.

                Does that mean my pre season tip of an eagles/roosters grand final is still a chance too?
