    I am alive. Enjoying this season at the moment but some of these games aren’t helping the heart. Waiting for an Eels implosion can do that to you. They are a different team this year.

    If you haven’t watched BA’s press conference leading into the Dragons game do it. He is surprisingly calm and said he never was worried we’d lose during last weeks game.

    He also casually says that we need to be hammering sides soon but that it’s not necessary now to be at your best if you want to win at the end of the year which I took as a comment pointed at Panthers.

    To me he had ice in his veins and is extremely happy with where we’re at.

    We should be f**ken winning by 50 each game like the Roosters are! Clearly BA has no idea what he’s doing as Sivo, Waqa, Fergo, Lane, Drown & Rheed have all regressed! And our game plan, whatever it is, isn’t identical to Storms, so we’re going to lose!

    Yep I'd never seen him so positive about the team. He's usually talking about all the shit we need to fix.

    I've always liked Arthur, but that press conference made me like him more.

    He came across to me as a man in control; he knows we have deficiencies, but he's not worried about them at this stage.

    And the fact he knows about the deficiencies probably means he knows how to address them when the time comes.

    My favourite ones are when he just sobs quietly, repeating “why won’t Rheed run?”

    How's he going to take the fourth hit up if he's playing the ball on the third ffs!

    Yeah...I must admit that, after tonight's effort, I'm having second thoughts about my prior words...

    I've seen nothing from the first 14 rounds of the season to suggest we will worry the Storm or the Roosters in the Finals if they're at full strength.

    They need to have significant injuries to a large portion of their squad if we're any chance of winning the comp.

    It's good timing we're playing the Storm next with their squad depleted. If we can't beat them next week with a depleted squad, you can write us off as any chance of getting close to them at full strength in the Finals.

    I reckon you can add the Panthers to that list - they're way above us at the moment, imo.

    We'd probably struggle against them sure, but I think if the Roosters and Storm are full strength in a Finals game they will deal with the Panthers too. I think the biggest question mark on this season is what sort of team the Roosters and Storm are fielding come Finals time. I don't think it's out of the question that both could be missing half their squad.

    My issue is there are glaring problems that aren’t being addressed:
    - right side defence combination
    - non existent attack in opposition 20
    - dumb decision making
    - Sivo being a slow lazy merkin
