    Not bad running on a dry track. Didn't kick too bad either.

    As for Mann the kid has been pushed and shoved around for the last 3 years and if it wasn't for injuries and desperation now by our coach he probably would not have played as much as he has and that is not lot . This shows what a classy player he is anyone else would have thrown the dummy . Once this kid is given a real go in a
    regular position he will will excel into one of the top players ....

    Yep, and my old sparring partner, gitano, certainly looks like a wanker today;)

    Early days I know but something tells me Mann may turn out to be a representative player. I see the makings of a terrific footballer whenever I watch him play - speed, acceleration, vision, evasiveness, toughness, stamina, and today I witnessed a pleasing passing game and a sound kicking game.

    We might be embarking on something very big with this guy.

    I've said it a few times but he really reminds me of another bloke called Kurt... Kurt Gildley. Very similar footballer. Utility back, 5/8th come fullback are his best positions. Fast, elusive, small but strong. Let's hope he turns out to be just as good as Gidley.

    It's interesting that 90% of the supporters on this forum could see what Kurt was capable of and calling for his inclusion in the halves when Hutch went down with injury and yet, super coach took 23 rounds to finally give him a real go. Why the f**k the hierarchy continue to persevere with this impostor of a coach just astounds me.

    I heard Johns say that Gidley wasn't the most naturally talented footballer .. but he was the hardest worker .. he wanted it more than anyone else.

    I suspect Mann is a very talented footballer .. hamstrung by a peanut ..

    Apart from ability he obviously has a great temperament to put up with our coaching buffoons.

    I think what is underestimated is his defense.. he is good.. which is no surprise as that is the main element Bellamy looks for when scanning youngsters

    A good kid .. appears well liked in the group .. and has that 'something' about him.

    I believe Mann was given the opportunity today because McNugget was injured .. hopefully the peanut doesn't revert to normal transmission if he comes good during the week.

    Surely he can't be that senseless?

    I hope Widdop comes and says he feels comfortable with Mann in the halves. I think this has been the reason why Mary has played McCrone.

    That logic is now dead.

    I'm happy we signed Hunt but if Dopey had of tried & given Mann a real go like he has with McCrone we might have saved some $. No matter what happens from here on in he needs to be told that the position is yours for the rest of the year & go out & play what's in front of you. Who knows he could be our missing X factor.
