    Toovey came within a whisker of Warriors job
    By The Mole
    September 23, 2016

    FORMER SEA EAGLES mentor Geoff Toovey came within a whisker of getting the Warriors job after Andrew McFadden was turfed as head coach.

    As I reported last week, Stephen Kearney was initially reluctant to leave the Broncos, telling the Warriors he was enjoying life in Brisbane as Wayne Bennett’s right-hand man.

    If Barrett is a better coach than our Legend 2V then I'm the real Bozo

    I've said it before, Tooves becomes a Warriors coach and they automatically become my 2nd favourite team.

    Let's just riot and bring toovs back, I swear I wouldn't even care if the coach who replaced him was the best in the NRL the way manly treated him, or shall i say the way bozo treated him, was wrong and Toovs really should sue them for sacking him unfairly.

    He was a brilliant coach and we leave him just like that. Why don't we fight more to try bring him back, even if it's seemingly impossible

    I do know it's not going to happen but let's make the people that let him go know that we aren't happy, we aren't happy at all.

    The sad reality is that while the Penn's, ZtH and Bozo are running things Tooves will never coach Manly again.

    Geez he's quick this mole fella. And original too.
    This was brought up on Tooves stint on Fox on Thursday night.
    So he writes this the next day and claims it as his own.
    What's that word...... ethics !!

    Kearney as a player won the premiership and a WCC and also won the 2008 World Cup as coach. However as a club coach Kearney has a 24% win percentage. Not sure he was a better choice than Toovey but good luck to him.

    Well the Warriors owner ****ed up. They will get the same mundane **** they've had for years with Kearney.

    Tooves is a rugby league prodigy and had I not supported my club for 30 years his sacking would have been the end of me as well.

    Toovey is one of leagues greatest and he deserves any position he applies for, from CEO to water boy.

    Get a grip warriors you missed a dead set legend on this one.

    What has happened to Tooves, has made me feel like a right royal ****wit in the way I used to complain about our structures out wide in defense and ruck speed under him.

    I'd give almost anything to have him back. At least then I'd feel like there was some maroon and white blood in our ownership / management / coaching staff.

    Warriors loss - the ****ing idiots. Even more ridiculous Penn / Kelly, bringing in mediocrity at every turn (in the playing group)

    Would have been an interesting situation reuniting Foz and Tooves. I wonder if that came into play? The warriors missed the better man.

    Tooves is an absolute legend. Sacking him was the lowest point the club has ever had.

    Right down there with sacking Alan Thompson. And the irony? His replacement was a New Zealander.

    I'm glad they picked Kearney

    I couldn't stomach Tooves in another club's colors

    Still heartbroken he isn't our coach due to politics

    He's everything that attracted me to manly

    The real Bozo hand-pick Barrett as our coach, and gushed over his coaching abilities and prospects.

    So would you trust your namesake to pick the next coach?

    A part of our club, and the game itself, died for me when Toovey was sacked. And it wasn't a small part.

    Barrett came on recommendation from Guss Gould and was highly respected by all players that he coached . The Real Bozo is an Immortal . He is closer to being God than any of us on here :)
