Smith Still Wants To Stay...

Smith Still Wants To Stay...

Alan Smith has reiterated his desire to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place, amid increasing speculation about his future.

The Yorkshiremen has been linked with Everton, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Rangers and please tell me if I forgot any. However, he has once again stressed that he wants to stay at Old Trafford.

'I don't want to leave. We need forwards and I want to have a proper go this season,' he told The Sun.

Quite clear, isn't it? Yet I still think that the silence of the club's prominent members is an ominous sign: if we succeed in bringing in a new striker, Smith will definitely leave Old Trafford.

I had expressed my opinions on this matter a thousand times so won't do it again. Some claim that it would better for Smith to move, career-wise and it's possible but I'm unsure about it. What do you think?

Yeah we need rid of richardson. Why are we letting smith go, oles 34, sahas injured half the time, rooney plays more as a second striker, rossi could be going to parma, we need a fiery, in your face, aggressive person to come off the bench when games are not going our way and smith does put his foot in and he is a good finisher

I say keep him. Even if we bring in another striker I see ol' smudger as an asset. Put it this way, when he first came to United he was the only striker available to us 'cause of various injuries. In that time he went on an amazing run of something like 8 goals in 10 games or something similiar. When fully fit, and playing in the right position, that's what he's capable of. And it's not as if he's ever stopped trying.

Hes not really ever been Man Utd quality. I think that Richardson should also be shown the door. Lets add some real quality, these are just simply squad players.
