Chris Smalling: In trouble for second time this season

The Manchester Evening News published pictures of Smalling which it claimed shows the England international apparently singing in the streets at 3:15am.

Smalling had stayed in the north-west while the rest of his team-mates travelled to London for their clash against West Ham because of a hamstring injury.

Moyes is not happy with the 24-year-old's conduct, although he refused to reveal the punishment he had handed out to the player.

"I've dealt with it and I've spoken to Chris," the United boss said in a press conference.

"That would be as much as I would want to say on it."

Smalling was in trouble in January as well, becoming the centre of controversy when he was pictured appearing to dress up as a suicide bomber for a private party in January.

Smalling later apologised for the "ill-thought" and "insensitive" decision to wear the costume, which consisted of a vest, a mock circuit board, empty bottles of Jagermeister and cans of Red Bull, the ingredients of a Jagerbomb.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
