Kick Off V The Rs

Kick Off V The Rs

Description: Jonathan Howson and Bradley Johnson kick off here for United towards the Kop End at Elland Road. This shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Queens Park Rangers on the 18th December, 2010. Both Jonny and Bradley played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the Sheperd's Bush outfit.

Loiner and United fan Jonathan Howson came through the Academy at Leeds United and made his senior debut for the club on the 19th September, 2006 in the second round of the Football League Cup which United won 3-1. Later in the same season of 2006-07 Howson was given his league debut by manager Wise which came on the 23rd December, 2006 in the 0-0 draw with Hull City at Elland Road. By the season 2007-08 Howson had established himself as the natural choice for his position winning the Young Player of the Year award and earning a new three year contract with the Whites in the bargain. Manager Simon Grayson handed the role of captain to Howson at the start of season 2009-10 due to the absence of injured fellow Loiner Richard Naylor.

Dennis Wise signed Bradley Johnson from Northampton Town on the 8th January, 2008 in a three year deal for a fee of 250,000 pounds. Johnson found it hard to find his place under new manager Gary McAllister and had a two month loan spell with Brighton and Hove Albion during the 2008-09 season which ended on 3rd January, 2009 Johnson scored 4 goals in 10 games for Brighton. Johnson returned to Leeds and has since established himself as one of Grayson's first choices for one of United's midfield spots.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Connolly, Bruce, Collins, McCartney, Kilkenny, Johnson, Snodgrass, Howson, Gradel, Becchio.
Subs: Bromby for Bruce, Sam for Gradel, Paynter for Becchio.

Thanks to Eric of the West Midland Whites for this great pic.
