Re: Manny Smith to return
 
1st year Manny, yes. 2nd year Manny, then Pearson will need to stay close to him. I don't care if he got played out of position for a few games. He got outmuscled too many times in that second season. Cook absolutely bullied him when he was at Barrow, as did the North Ferriby beanstalk striker.

Didn't he play along Hudson season 1 and then Fyfield in season 2? Not really a Hudson fan but would say that partnership (big man foil) would more closely resemble what we'd have now with Pearson. I often thought Fyfield was looking for someone to hold his hand too.

I for one would be glad to see him back. In that second season you can forgive him as he was played out of place and the whole team was disjointed. To be fair I always liked Fyfield when others didn't. He always put a good shift in but was under appreciated by a lot of fans. Manny had that extra bit of class though Imo.

[QUOTE=Alan Attack;2033795]I'm not that arsed about Smith returning. He's done nothing in his career to suggest he's one of the best centre backs in this league. Not like Shaun Pearson[/QUOTE]

Riley is better than Manny, I don't know why we didn't keep him. Said it at the time that it could have been a mistake.

[QUOTE=Gaz Wxm;2033797]this has been mentioned on another thread ...there is mention of his agent wanting obscene amounts just to talk to him.... for me it will depend on which Manny turns up, first season fine.... second season thanks but no thanks[/QUOTE]

I agree. While I am happy to go along with DK but I hope Manny, if he signs, is much better than he was in his final season with us.

I don't think there's a significant amount in it to be honest.

A matter of opinion of course but in fairness it would have been a risk given his injuries. Great while fit. I'd probably use a similar argument for White, a gamble based on his issues. I'd not have been disappointed if we had gambled on both.
Manny was asked to play football in his year 2, and that in the right back position. Just not his position or game. I'd be happy if he's slap bang in the middle with Pearson.

DK has just signed a player who has had a 10 month break due to injury isn't that a risk ? yes of course it is life is a gamble .l

Riley is class on his day. But let's be honest, you always feel he's just a game away from half a season out. Manny is dependable, and I think that he will make a great centre back partnership with Pearson. Good move for me

Would be a decent signing but I rate Riley more. It's easy to look like Maldini playing alongside Blaine Hudson
