Rumour Manny off to Chesterfield ?


Recommended Posts

I really liked and rated Manny. The complete midfielder on his day. But 45 starts over 3 seasons just isn't conducive to what we need here. Not his fault, but I'd imagine this move has been sanctioned by Clarke and Flitcroft so they must be confident in signing better this summer.

Every club reckons they will be the club to sort a player out.

Whether it is injuries, attitude, or whatever; their club is different and they'll be able to sort him out. Little changes, usually.

Unfortunately I envisage similar issues for Manny as he faced with us. For the games he's fit, they'll have a standout player at that level.

All the best to him. Wasn't his fault at all and the comments made by Clarke indicate that the sports science, medical, and physiotherapy aspects of the club have been subpar.

If he plays 30 games+ for them then something borderline negligent has gone on with us.

Good luck to him,hope it works out for him. But he was never going to fit into a leaner,fitter side as we'll be next season. Always a sad thing when a player can't achieve their potential. Can't wait to see who will replace him.

I think that’s pretty shocking from our front. Clearly our best midfielder and one of our best players. Issues with fitness yes. But not recently under Clarke. We must have some decent players lined up to let a player of his quality go. 

Our midfield will go to <ovf censored> for the rest of the season.

At the end of last season he had surgery to correct a long standing problem. But yeah his injury record this season has also been poor

The manner in which he immediately got injured on a return pre-surgery is what I'm thinking of.

He genuinely lasted 20 minutes. Whoever had signed him off as fit to play wanted sacking.

We were all told the major surgery was the 'solution' and then he's struggled again this season. 

It's very sad as he seems a lovely bloke + is one of the few players we've got with genuine baller ability.

I'm alright with it, and I love Manny.

Every word from the club has suggested that injury-prone players are not going to be persevered with as we look at a leaner squad.

He signed a very decent contract when he was considering leaving two years ago too, so some decent wages to got into The Matrix for the summer. 

If he was going to be released then it's good business. There will be other talent out there for similar money. We signed him from non-league and there will be other players just as good, if we get recruitment right.

A pity really but I hope he plays forty odd games for Chesterfield next season because he is a talented player. My lasting memory of him will be scoring a last minute rocket at league leaders Lincoln on New Year's Day a few years back. It sent the travelling Valiants home happy that afternoon.
