Alan Scum got back to old ways yesterday in the Manchester derby with an 89th minute dismissal. The game ended 0-0 for the first time since 1973 but the signs were there early on for Leeds fans who had to endure six years of ill-discipline from the Rothwell Rage.
Incredibly his first booking of the game was his first in 2004! Then he got a second booking as all the old demons came to the surface once again. (Amazing how he cleaned up his act when he was told he'd never get a transfer away from Leeds to Man U with his poor disciplinary record should we be relegated. Pity he couldn't have tried a little self-control in a white shirt).
It doubtless came as a shock to the Scumster that as a Man U player he could actually get sent off at Old Trafford! But the pendulum has swung the other way after recent embarrassingly blatant "home" refereeing decisions at the Theatre of Queens. Smith now joins Ruud "Dobbin" Van Nistleroy is being banned for violent conduct, still at least Alan has had a lot of practice at being banned and he can always get tips from another ex-White, Rio "Memory Man" Wierdinand
Other ex-whites featured in the derby were Danny Mills for Man City and Robbie Fowler who "appeared" as a non-playing sub. Even so Fowler is reported to be in trouble for a gesture made towards the Man U crowd before the gameeven started!
Good to see the precious prima donnas whose lack of discipline constantly dragged Leeds' reputation through the mud in the past haven't grown up one little bit - they're still a bunch of highly paid cretins but now wearing red and blue shirts! They can change their shirt colours but they can't change their spots!!!
