Beckford and Douglas red card delight!

2 August 2007 :: by Chris Hudson

Dennis Wise was a relieved man today when he received the news that the double red cards suffered against Energie Cottbus FC on the pre-season friendly tour of Germany will only count against reserve team games. This means that Douglas and Beckford who received their marching orders for 'foul and abusive language' and 'dissent' respectively' will be available for selection for the League One campaign which starts in less than two weeks.

Wise needs all the bodies he can get as he is still unable to sign players due to the dillydallying of the Football League over transferring the 'golden share' to Leeds United 2007 Ltd. Jermaine Beckford, who scored the winner in Tuesday night's friendly against Darlington FC, is set to start the season as first choice striker for the Whites after the move to Scunthorpe United was rejected by the new Leeds United Board.

Disappointingly for Wise, despite this reprieve, Irish international Douglas will still not captain the side on the opening day of the season, away at Tranmere FC, as he is still serving the remainder of a five match ban for a similar offence at the end of last season. Wise has given Douglas an ultimatum as regards his on-field behaviour, his red card in Germany proving that, despite an eye-watering five game ban, he still hasn't learnt the lesson that referees may be blind, bent, stupid or hostile but they are unapproachable without suffering dire consequences. Maybe Wise isn't the one to deliver that lesson though! Where's Gus Poyet when you need him?

Feel free to have your say on the behaviour of Douglas and/or Dennis Wise on our fans forum
