My comment was not meant to demean Manny in any way.
To me, like most fans, he is as close as we have had to a legend in recent years.
Insurance would only apply if effected by the club prior to his injury.
Thereafter there would be a punitive pre-existing clause.
Even then the policy may, or may not, covered all the cost and would have carried an excess with both dependant on the quality of the insurance purchased.
Given most other things have been acquired on the cheap I will leave it to you to speculate.

Very sad for Manny.

He was one of the good ones.

Hope his future works out well for him.

Great player for us, huge shame for the lad himself. Hope he does well in whatever he does next. Certainly wouldn't begrudge him a pre-season Testimonial if it would make him a few quid.

He had the ability to make it look really comfortable and easy most of the time.

Not a huge surprise, given the amount of time he's already been out but still really sad to have it confirmed and obviously much more devastating for Manny himself. I wish him all the best. Could he do much worse than Keates as manager. Our Eddie Howe. Quiet, yet a sense of control and respect there. Maybe not the thread for that kind of talk but regardless, a damn good CB and a seemingly humble guy. Shame it had to end for him like this but hopefully he has a bond with the club that a large number of fans developed for him over the 2 spells.

Keeping it a secret wasn't a good move, but giving Manny the contract extention was.

Didn't he play Vs Eastleigh after he signed the contract? If so then clearly there was belief rather then just hope that he could/would get back to his best. Regardless I think it was the right thing to do to support such a player as much as we possibly could in trying to get right, I wouldn't like us to be the type of club that would cut our losses at the earliest opportunity (Bonus if some or all of it was covered by insurance.)

Anyway, always seems a great guy and pro and obviously a top player for us....behind Pearson and Creighton in terms of overall influence for me but on a par with NKP for talent.
