Smith and Cantona.

Postby Aces » 13 Aug 2013, 14:48

I have never seen Smith and Cantona's picture on the Leeds player display in the top right hand corner of each page. Is there a reason why they aren't featured and are there any others who are not showing?

Just to mention, I'm not saying they should be, just curious that's all.

I think I know why - but they were good before they went to the dark side

Smith can be a contentious issue to bring up...

Any Smith debate tends to goon for many pages. He had the choice of joining a few clubs but chose to go to the dark side. As a player for us I had loads of time for him wore his heart on his sleeve. I respect him never kissing the red badge though but he went to them and that in my eyes was unforgivable given he was a Leeds lad anorl. Even his parents were season tickets holders at ER.

As for Cantona he allegedly slept with another's players wife and when Wilkinson approached him he showed no remorse and was instantly put on the list. Still think we sold him too cheap.

It's not my decision who goes into the hall of fame but I think the likes of the aforementioned along with McQueen and Jordan may struggle to get a mention either.

I await the Smith fans to tell me he did what he did for the club.

Did he ??
I thought only ManUre came in at the time ...


It's my understanding that Arsenal were the favourites to sign him.

Man Utd were the only club willing to pay the money up front, rather than instalments. Plus, apparently we approached Scum about signing him.

On Cantona, allegedly when Lee Chapman got injured, he took on more than just Chapman's goalscoring duties. Apparently this chant was around back in the day:
He's French, he's flash, he's shagging Leslie Ash
Cantona! Cantona!

Just thought, I haven't seen Kewell either, now I understand that completely.

There's been quite a bit of transfer traffic between us and them, I was just wondering when it became a situation where they didn't feature in the pictures above.

I understand also that Smith going there was controversial, but Cantona was sold to them, that about him banging another players wife, is that a good reason why?
