Great player and I wish him well.
However, as a business decision, to keep him on the payroll for this long has to be questioned.
Sorry to be the one bringing this up but our club is in deep crap right now.
Sentiment is great if you can afford it. We could not and should have reatained a crocked player even if that argument extends to most of the current playing (and management) staff.

Ever heard of insurance?

So what happens next ?

Does a player who's career is cut short through injury insured ?
I was at Solihull and witnessed the incident and watched him being helped off the field - seems a long time ago - well it was - two August bank holiday's back - some are complaining about the club but they did give him a contract extension whilst injured and MS has been given a long opportunity to regain fitness.

We don't seem to have them now like we used to - but I can't help feeling if anyone should be helped with the proceeds of a testimonial then perhaps MS is a deserving case - however it used to be down to some criteria of being at the same club for x of time - but regardless he and his family should be helped somehow (perhaps the answer is there in my first paragraph reference insurance)

Now the peculiar bit - only the other during a post match interview made claim that MS would be back but when pressed wouldn't put a time limit on it.
Perhaps he was just being polite.

Whatever happens just wish Manny the best for the future - unbeatable in the air when faced with a high ball and a bigger forward than himself.

Gutted for him. A really good player at this level, and possibly higher was it not for injury.

However, why did we offer him a contract extension when we did?

Brilliant player for us, a shame he's had to retire. Hopefully he'll make the odd appearance to watch Wrexham in the future.

On the contract front, it was the right decision to give him a contract from a moral point of view. However, we as a fan base should have been told this.

Was still a chance he'd play again, it hasn't worked out and it sounds like his contract has now been terminated.

Manny Smith being given a contract hasn't landed us up where we are, plus I bet it was covered by the insurers.

Was at Solihull when he got the career ending injury a big loss to us last season and this one.

I wish him all the best for the future he was a very good servant of the club and a loyal player.
