    Sad to say, Alan didnt really make a big impact at Man U and didnt score many goals as a forward would. Also I didnt really think he was spectacular when he was at Leeds. But his never say die attitude was good and he would even tackle the defenders to win the ball back.

    It would do his playing career good if he moves on becos he may never be the regular forward at Man U

    My sentiment too. So far, as a striker, he has not made any impact at all. No wonder SAF has not offered him another contract when the present one runs out. Many ManU strikers, past and present, are much better than him. I think it would be in his own interest to ply his trade elsewhere where he could command a first eleven place.

    Although I have not seen Dong played, but I believe he doesn't have what it takes to be a prolific striker in a ManU jersey. SAF bought him more for commercial marketing, I feel. Rossi is also nothing to shout about. Gotta buy another striker and can't rely on the youngsters.

    VNR, A Cole, Solsjaer and D Yoke can be considered prolific.

    In the 80s and 90s, strikers like Gary Birtles, Alan Brazil....fared badly; couldnt take the pressure

    Recent years the strikers have been good but SAF rather have the team share the scoring so that opponents have to watch out for every Man U player in the box

    But: No United bid for Italian

    United have not voiced an interest in Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella, according to the player's agent.

    The 23-year-old Italian international has been linked with Old Trafford in recent weeks but, although agent Silvio Pagliari claims United are interested, no move has materialised.

    Pagliari told BBC Sport: "I know there's some interest from Manchester United. I'm very proud of it, as he is. But United have had no contact with me or with Sampdoria.

    "He'd be keen on playing in England, for sure. We have many things to think of, as many big clubs in Italy too are interest in a player like Fabio.

    "We can talk about Inter Milan, Juventus, Man Utd, Chelsea - this is no problem for the player as they are all massive clubs."

    A host of strikers from across Europe have been linked with United ever since Chief Executive David Gill's admission that the Reds could be tempted into action if the right target became available.

    High chance either E'to or Ronaldinho leaving, so they really need Henry to be there.....
    Looks like this may be the end of an era for Gunners.....Arsene Wenger had told Henry that he will not be renewing his contract next yr......Gunners will need a serious injection of cash to lure any of the top guys to join them...

    How come sell striker instead of singing them? If Alan Smith leaves, it leaves us only with Rooney and Saha as established strikers. Rossi and Dong are not ready yet and ole is old and is a sub.

    Pompey join Smith hunt

    Portsmouth have joined the chase to sign Alan Smith after manager Harry Redknapp admitted the striker represents "fantastic value."

    The 26-year-old forward has been linked with moves to Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Everton in recent weeks.

    The Fratton Park side have now joined the hunt with Redknapp keen to secure Smith's services.

    “He is fantastic value and no gamble," said Redknapp. "He was in the last England team and is proven."

    Two weeks ago, Smith admitted he may have to leave Old Trafford in a bid to gain regular first team football.

    "If you're no longer wanted, then you have to consider your options," he told The Sun.
    Wow ... so many people want him
