ow fitting, that on the day that the death of John Charles is announced, Alan Smith scores the equaliser at Old Trafford with a good old-fashioned centre-forward's header from distance. Although the temprament of Charles and Smith couldn't be further apart I'm sure he would have loved the goal that earned a point for the hard-pressed Leeds squad, deprived so unfairly of the services of Mark Viduka by the selfish act of the children in charge of the Australian Soccer Federation. Incredibly, despite the excellent point Leeds returned to the bottom of the Premiership owing to the Wolves win against Fulham. Scott Carson got his full game debut over with, turning in a display that showed his inexperience (and acrobatic ability) at times. Nonetheless, given that he is 18 playing in a depleted team, in front of 67000 Reds, he can be pleased to be in a side that took some points off Man Utd. Eddie Gray will feel justified in his faith in the youngster. That said, few Leeds fans would argue with the fact that the Reds were pre-eminent and if they had converted a tenth of their chances they would have run out easy winners.
On a final note, the minute's silence at the start of the game was well-respected by the Reds fans and they deserve a note of praise for that; particularly given the shameful display by Leeds fans, at Ewood Park, during the silence marking the death of Sir Matt Busby. Perhaps the small minority of Leeds fans will now desist from singing the embarrasing and distasteful "Munich" song. Remember, the brother of Leeds hero Jackie Charlton was amongst those involved. It's a new century and time to move on, having paused just long enough to remember the achievements and passing of the greatest Leeds United and Welsh International footballer of all-time.
