Leeds manager Simon Grayson bans snoods for Arsenal match

No neckwear for Championship side

The battle-lines have been drawn ahead of tonight’s FA Cup third round replay between Leeds and Arsenal, and the issue of the snood seems to be central. While Arsenal stars such as Samir Nasri have been at the heart of the snood’s rise to popularity in the Premier League, Leeds gaffer Simon Grayson has banned his players from donning them for tonight’s match.

Grayson said: “I don’t mind the lads wearing snoods on the training pitch but during a game they should be running around to keep themselves warm.”

Apparently, he might be willing to make one exception – striker Robert Snoodgrass will be allowed on the pitch!

Assuming you don’t play for Leeds, win a snood for yourself here.

    Not actually true that he banned snoods for the Arsenal match…. he banned them weeks and weeks ago. For any match. After the Reading game if I remember rightly, when its just possible that Kasper Schmeichel may have worn one…. (it was to be fair, very very very cold that day, and he doesn’t get to run around much)

    Anyway, still a misleading story.
