I reckon Dessie deserves all the accolades that any coach could receive. He has taken us from an average side hoping to make the top 8 on previous years to the heights of 2nd on the table and now a GF. He has constructed this side with a few stars and many very solid NRL footballers. To do all this within the salary cap by bringing high class players such as Monas, Kite, BK, Bell, Ox, Lyon while also bringing fringe NRL players to the club and turning them into worthy NRL players. If he wins next weeks GF could he be regarded as Manly's best ever coach? Remembering that Bozo had a blank checkbook and the pull of a Australia coaches role to get virtually anyone he wanted.
