Morison's Ready

Morisons Ready

Description: Steve Morison United's Forward here ready to come on for The Whites with manager Brian McDermott looking on. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Brighton And Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 27th April, 2013. The last home game of the 2012-13 season for The Whites. Steve replaced Luke Varney in the game on 62 minutes.

Neil Warnock the United manager signed Steve Morison from Norwich City on the 31st January, 2013, the last day of the transfer window, on a three-and-a-half-year contract. The Forward came to Leeds as part of a swap deal which saw the Argentine Luciano Becchio go the other way with Leeds United also getting an undisclosed sum as part of the deal. The Forward made his debut for Leeds in the Championship game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on the 9th February, 2013 and scored his first goal for The Whites just two games later in United's victory over Blackpool at Elland Road on the 20th February. The United manager told the official site after the deal had been done, "Steve meets all the requirements of the striker we've been looking to bring in. For me, he is a player who has everything. He can score goals from anywhere - whether it's 25 yards or a tap-in - he has pace, and he has all the attributes you want."

After Neil Warnock resigned from his position as Leeds United manager on April 1st, 2013, the Leeds board didn't waste much time in finding his replacement. It was less than a fortnight later on the 12th April that Brian McDermott was appointed as the new manager. Signing for the club on a three year contract Brian brought with him Nigel Gibbs, the two have experience working together at Reading, with Nigel becoming the clubs new Assistant Manager. McDermott's previous managerial stint saw him achieve promotion with Reading to the Premier League in 2011-12, the Berkshire club won the Play Off final after winning 15 of the last 19 games in the Championship. McDermott told Radio Leeds after he joined the club, "This is probably the only club I would come to at this stage of the season. I just want to get going now." The manager had previously stated that he would wait till the Summer to resume his managerial career. Brians first game in charge for Leeds was a tough test in the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road, the game coming on the 13th April just a day after he signed for Leeds. United won the game 2-1.
