    Toovey should take them to the cleaners. No coach is going to survive under such a toxic and dysfunctional environment. I just hope the new coach is given the chance to function!

    DON’T let ‘em screw you, “Toovs”. Don’t agree on any pay-out deal unless you get exactly what you want and deserve as a Sea Eagles legend.

    Geoff Toovey put his body on the line over and over again without the slightest concern for his own safety when he was playing for Manly. He spilt blood, got concussed and received neck injuries and ugly facial cuts – all for the cause. He did the same for NSW and Australia.

    Toovs is one of the two toughest players I’ve seen, along with George Piggins.

    He got into coaching lower grades and assisting Des Hasler as first-grade coach before taking over the top job in 2012. He didn’t hesitate to step in when Hasler left to take up an offer from Canterbury.

    Now, whether Toovey is a great coach or not is not the point today. The point is he’s got a contract until the end of next season and Manly is getting rid of him in favour of the untried Trent Barrett. Geoff Toovey, who has devoted his senior life to the club.

    It is already in bad taste, the way he is being pushed out. Yesterday, negotiations between the club and Toovey to make the split official did not reach a conclusion, reportedly because the two parties could not agree on a pay-out figure.

    Further reports suggested the termination would happen today, with Toovey continuing as coach until the end of the season before being succeeded by Barrett.

    Another Manly legend, Bob Fulton, is heavily involved in the current “reboot” of Manly. Toovey played under him in Manly and Australian teams. Fulton should do his utmost to convince the Manly management to give Toovey the appropriate pay-out figure.

    We’re talking about one of the club’s true greats here.........the Article is by Greg Pritchard

    Club Announcement on Geoff Toovey

    The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have met with Geoff Toovey and mutually agreed that he will remain as coach until the end of the 2015 season.

    The club will honour Toovey’s contract in full until the end of the 2016 season.

    Former St George-Illawarra, NSW Origin and Australian Test five-eighth Trent Barrett will be the new Sea Eagles coach for the next three years from 2016.

    Manly Warringah CEO Joe Kelly thanked Geoff for his service and commitment to the club.

    “Geoff has been an influential figure within the Sea Eagles organisation for almost three decades. His contribution on and off the field is unprecedented, and he will always be one of the club’s favourite sons,’’ Kelly said.

    “Geoff and the club remain firmly committed to finishing this season off on the highest possible note.”

    Chairman Scott Penn echoed Kelly’s sentiments.

    “Geoff has been an integral part of the club since first playing in our junior ranks over 30 years ago,’’ Penn said.

    “Geoff is a club legend having played 286 first grade games for the Sea Eagles including three Grand Finals from 1995-97, captaining the team to the 1996 Premiership and numerous representative appearances.

    “We’ve all had the pleasure of watching his career evolve from being one of the toughest competitors on the field to coaching our first grade team in recent years.

    “Geoff is a Life Member of the Sea Eagles and his lifelong commitment to the club is without question.

    “In late April, the club was fortunate to secure iconic club coach and player Bob Fulton as an advisor to work with management and help restructure the future football pathways from juniors through to the NRL level.

    “This has been an intense and thorough process to ensure the long term future and ongoing success of the club.

    “Significant changes will be occurring. These changes won’t take away from the success the club has enjoyed, but will help reinforce the foundation for a successful future. We are excited about 2016 and beyond.”

    Out of respect for the club and Geoff Toovey, Trent Barrett will be making no comment until the season has concluded.

    Announcement from the club just arrived in my inbox, honouring Toovey's contract (financially)until the end of next year, with Barrett taking over from him on completion of this year.

    Didn't realize that Kelly has been a lifelong 2v fan :wondering:

    So Z's truth is that in October 2v was put on notice.
    Joker's truth is that Bozo luckily fell into Manly's offices in April - hmmm @:rolleyes:

    Chnl 7 reporting that 2v is only getting his 350k Coaching fee as settlement.

    Manly have shafted him on all his bonuses for making the finals and GF.:mad:

    But have not been able to enforce a Confidentiality Clause. @:rolleyes:

    Everyone I have been speaking to, and even Brad Fittler today have wondered why Joe Kelly and Penns have been so invisible while parading Toovey out there as fall guy for this year.
    What a bunch of muppets - too precious to appear in public or to give the guy some support.
    They better be on the right track - I would imagine all Manly supporters will be calling for their heads next.

    Would he still be owed a GF bonus in 2016?

    Would that not have been paid last year or are bonuses paid at the end?

    I'd love to hear his side of the story but I think unlike some he'd be too respectful of the club.
