737-800 Manoeuvring Speed

Morning all,

After 2000+ hours on the beloved A321 I am extremely fortunate to continue on the 737-800. Throughout my line training I consistently met with same scenario with trainers and find myself scratching my head. When left high thanks to ATC or for other reasons I would instinctively, when in flaps 1 or 5, (or useless 10 ha ha) with an open speed window, plan to increase my speed above the flap manoeuvring speed and increase my drag & ROD (which we always did on the A321, flaps 2 & 180 kts selected = drop like a brick). It was always met with NO!! I find the FCTM pretty vague at best. Any definitive nuggets?
