High Five From The Number 5

High Five From The Number 5

Submitted: 02/18/11 (Edited 02/18/11)
Description: Luciano Becchio United's Argentine Striker and Neill Collins here give each other the high five after the game on the Ricoh Arena pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on the 6th November, 2010. Both Luciano and Neill played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the West Midlands outfit.

The Argentinian Becchio was signed by Gary McAllister on the 31st July, 2008 for three years. He impressed the manager with his performances during the 2007-08 pre-season friendlies while on loan from Spanish outfit Merida Union Deportiva. With some stellar performances for Leeds since his arrival he has made the number 10 shirt his own and become a fans favourite.

Manager Simon Grayson brought Neill Collins to Leeds on loan in March, 2010 for the rest of the 2009-10 season. Coming from Preston North End Neill was an important fixture in United's push for promotion to the Championship. After playing that instrumental part in United's automatic promotion to the Championship Neill was signed up for a three year deal on the 7th July, 2010 for an undisclosed fee. It was announced though on 31st December, 2010 that Collins would be moving to Sheffield United on a permanent move for an undisclosed fee. Manager Grayson commented that Neill wasn't getting his chance at Leeds as other players were in there and the move would give him the chance of regular football.

Leeds United: Brown, Connolly, Collins, O'Brien, McCartney, Kilkenny, Faye, Howson, Gradel, Becchio, Snodgrass.
Subs: Johnson for Faye, Hughes for Gradel, Somma for Kilkenny.

Thanks to Colin for this great pic.
