Smith Still Fighting

Smith Still Fighting

United striker Alan Smith is ready to fight for his place in the team and believes he's good enough to play for the Reds.

It was just the other day I dared to criticise Smith and he came up with the adequate response. OK, he probably did not read what gibberish I wrote about him or anyone else but he gave a perfect reaction.

'I am not leaving, it is as simple as that,' he said. 'There has been a lot of speculation but I am going nowhere. I feel I'm good enough to play in this team. I have always believed that.

'The manager gave me the option to go out on loan but I didn't want to.

'I am sure he thought it was in the best interests of both myself and the club but I told him I believed I was good enough to play in his team when I am fit and he accepted that.'

Smudger, I sincerely hope you're right with your belief. The problem is, your displays since your comeback did not suggest you would be good enough to play for Manchester City, even though they can't score to save their lives. A quick and almost magical transformation is what Smith (and Manchester City, by the way) needs if he is ever to stand a chance at us.

They need just about anyone who might score goals, who might keep them up... but we don't miss them, do we?
