Smith to join Magpies, but was he treated fairly by Fergie?

The Reds have reportedly agreed a fee £6m with Newcastle United for Alan Smith. If the deal goes ahead the former Leeds United striker will link up with his old team-mate Mark Viduka to rekindle a partnership that worked well for their old West Yorkshire club.

Since Smith arrived at United, opinions on his worth have been divided among Reds fans, some love him to death, others are at best indifferent. However, the only opinion that really matters though is Ferguson's and clearly with no offer a new contract, it was decision time for the England striker.

Should the move go through, the decision to sell Smith will no doubt meet with mixed verdicts from the Red Army. Personally, I'm more concerned about off-loading Rossi, but the story goes that United have insisted upon a butt-covering buy-back clause being written into his new Villarreal contract.
