Wave To The Wedlock

Wave To The Wedlock

Submitted: 02/26/11
Description: Max Gradel United's Ivorian Midfielder and the Danish number one Kasper Schmeichel here show their appreciation to the Leeds United fans who made the trip down to the South West. The shot coming after the Football League Championship game against Bristol City at Ashton Gate on the 12th February, 2011. Both Max and Kasper played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the South West outfit while Max scored Leeds' second goal and Kasper kept a clean sheet for The Whites.

Ivorian Max Gradel was brought in from Leicester City by manager Simon Grayson for a month loan deal on the 19th October, 2009. Max made an impressive start for the Whites winning the Man of the Match award for Leeds after coming on as substitute in a 2-1 win over Norwich City at Elland Road on the very same day as his move. On the 13th November, 2009 after several more impressive performances for Leeds Grayson extended Gradels loan period to reach up to the 2nd January, 2010. Further into the season of 2009-10 and Grayson was again prompted to extend Gradels loan period after some crucial match winning performances for the Whites but after a 4-2 win against Stockport County manager Grayson confirmed he had begun talks with all the parent clubs of United's loan players and shortly after on the 25th January, 2010 Gradel was signed by Leeds in a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Kasper Schmeichel was manager Simon Grayson's first signing of the Summer of 2010 after United were promoted to the Championship. Leeds' manager Grayson beat off a host of other clubs to the Danish keeper's signature after he had kept 24 clean sheets for his former club Notts County and won the PFA League Two Player of the Year in the bargain. Schmeichel joined Leeds on a free transfer on the 1st July, 2010 in a contract that will last two years. He was handed the number One shirt for the 2010-11 season opener just edging out Shane Higgs who showed some good form in United's pre-season campaign.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Lichaj, O'Brien, Bruce, McCartney, Johnson, Kilkenny, Snodgrass, Howson, Gradel, Becchio.
Subs: Somma for Kilkenny, McCormack for Becchio.
