I've kept pretty quite about it this season. We have been travelling pretty well and it hasn't really bothered me up until now. I have to say, I am extreemly disappointed with manly's recruitment this season. All year we have known Ben Kennedy will be hagging up the boots. All year we've had a chance to replace him with someone at least half as tallented and half as inspirational and who do we come up with? Nothing. I think its pretty evident how much of an impact he has had on our team. When he was off the field I almost couldn't watch as our team starts to implode under the pressure. I don't know if the players are skirts who needs BK to hold their hand or whatever but to come up with nobody to replace him is disgusting. Anybody associated with the decision should hang there head. Instead we throw half a million to Jamie Lyon and thats ment to fix all our problems. I'm just wondering how much we have left under the cap, have we missed out because players just don't want to come to Manly or have we run short of money due to nearly 1/4 of the cap being accomodated by 2 players??? If we don't end up finding a suitable replacement in the off season, I want heads to roll, you can't be a succesful footie team unless you are constantly making sure your covered for times when greats like BK retire and in my books, one whole season is more than enough time to find an answer. Who's going to replace him? Glen Stewart? Well it would have been good to give him some time on the field to prepare him better for 1st grade. Im not saying he's a bad player, its just a whole new game and more time this season would have proven immense value for next year. The same apply's for Rose. He got the position on the bench but for some reason despite his devastating effect while on the field he only managed 15 minutes a game. Like I said earlier, if we don't find someone better than G.Stewart or Matai to replace BK in the offseason, I want the person at fault to admit to their monumental **** up.
