I felt in the last 2 outings of seeing Fleet at home that Manny isn't quite the fox in the box he perhaps should be. His work outside of the box and out wide is very good but I just feel he needs to be bombing into that 6-yard box more often. We would've been possibly 2 up against Stevenge with those crosses going across their box with someone on the end of them.

I myself think manny is a great player, but i did notice that when we took a corner i think it was, we had no one at the back post so the ball went off for a goal kick. If we had some one there we would have been a goal up

I think manny is a class act and unfortunately the tactics used by stevenage left manny isolated and quite honestly he looked average that game.

Not all teams will play the stevenage stifling style,I beleive a team like Hereford will bring out the best in manny and tomorrow we will see whaat he can really do in their box.

Think you will find he will fade into a good sub.

Respect all of Your managers signings, but this one will not work out.
It never does

I think both teams' tactics cancelled Manny out on Saturday, but we'll get that with nearly all of our players in the course of the season! Yet i think he did produce the most amazing bit of skill I've seen at Stonebridge Road for about 3 seasons where he took the ball round 4 players then just missed a classy chip, that was what Manny Omoyinmi is about, (+ the goal poacher too!) Let's hope to see more of him, Roy, Andy D and Moose n Saturday!! UP THE FLEET!!!

The goals he scored against Morecambe & York suggest otherwise, where he used his pace to get to the ball before the 'keeper.....

And whilst he may not have scored against Stevenage, his pass set up Moussa's equaliser.

I think he should use the "manny sloping"forehead for some pitching wedge like flick ons, but only if he uses his height.

I still think he's the key that opens up defences- his movement and work rate can sometimes go unnoticed

Why don't you concentrate on what Margate are doing?
Maybe you could try and break the 300 attendance barrier next week!
