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.
