    @TripleM_NRL: Andrew Johns told @TripleM_NRL he will not continue as Manly halves coach beyond this season

    No big loss imho..

    No I want DCE to play like 10 mill DCE. He's been under Johns for years now and almost left. If Johns is that good, Foran wouldn't have left..

    Johns has improved our attack big time, one thing i admire about Geoff is he was never too proud to admit he did not know all the answers, was able to pick the brains of others and filter out what was needed from what was not necessary.

    A coach does not have to know all the answers just choose the right options or ideas to work with and if that means delegating stuff to more talented people in certain areas so be it, one of Geoff's great attributes that should not go unnoticed.

    No big secret Joey was leaving. I think it was announced, unofficially at least, a month or so back.

    Only 2 weeks ago on the Footy Show, when Sterlo asked Joey if he was staying, Joey said no-one from Manly had spoken to him.
    Sorry to see this announcement as I'll be surprised if Barrett can replace Joey's expertise.

    You would think at this stage of his career, DCE would improve his game pretty much by himself. I don't think Andrew johns would have been a great role model at the club with his well documented love for partying. If he is replaced by someone with a more responsible head than I think that would be for the better. The players need expert coaches to work with not a drinking buddy.

    I would have wanted him to stay and coach our future 5/8. Whoever that might be I'm sure Johns would have steered him in the right direction.

    I hope Joey coaches the Knights cause they really need him now, he has helped in the development of DCE and Foran but time to move on.

    The Club should have done what Wayne Bennet does after a losing season; fire all of the assistant and support staff and blame them but retained Tooves.

    Joey is a northern beaches resident, the commute to Newcastle would be a bit hard.

    Indeed. The Northern Beaches lifestyle, coupled with his media commitments, won out long ago.

    It really is a clean out isn't it, I guess Donny will be next ( which is so sad as he's the most passionate staff member we have ).

    I lost count since mid last year to now, how many times the latest bit of big news coming out of manly is reported by his brother on his stupid MMM show or Monday Nights with MJ.

    Anyone who thinks Andrew doesnt run to his brother with every little whisper of gossip he hears is kidding themselves.

    This wont hurt the halves. Hes a child not a coach.
