After bowing to pressure from the fans not to sign Hell Hadji, Doctor Evil is now apparently after another of his old bad boys with ex Leeds and Man Utd thug Alan Smith is the latest reported target. Well we've had Bowyer I suppose, so why not his old mucker Smith? And then who knows, we could go for Woodgate to complete the set.
Would it be a good move? Not in my book. Smith was a good player once but that was a long, long, long time ago now. He has never been the same since that leg break to be honest.
But never mind Smith, the bigger question is why Allardyce only seems interested in his former players. This is a guy who was famed for having dossiers on players from across Europe. Since when have Bolton and Newcastle constituted the whole of Europe exactly?
