So, Did You Hear About The...

Description: Michael Brown the United Midfielder looks like he's about to crack a joke here to the Scottish International Ross McCormack on the Elland Road pitch. Adam Clayton looks like he has probably heard it before. The shot coming from the last Football League Championship game of the 2011-12 season against Leicester City at Elland Road on the 28th April, 2012. All three of the United players featured played the full ninety minutes for Leeds against the Foxes.

Manager Simon Grayson initially signed Adam Clayton from Manchester City on a months loan on the 6th August, 2010. He made his debut for Leeds coming on as substitute in the home game against Derby County just 24 hours after he had signed. Just over a month later on the 21st September, 2010 Clayton joined Leeds on a permanent basis. He made three more substitute appearances for Leeds in that season before he was loaned out to Peterborough and then the MK Dons for match experience. He impressed at his loan clubs and by now Clayton wanted to stake a claim to play in the first team at Elland Road for the 2011-12 season. Clayton's chance came after the departure of Midfielders Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson in the Summer transfer window. He started in the first eleven for Leeds in the opening game of the season against Southampton at St Marys and since as made himself a permanent fixture in United's Midfield.

Manager Simon Grayson signed Michael Brown from Portsmouth on the 11th July, 2011. Brown signed on a free transfer for a year with an option of extending the period a further year. Wearing the number eight shirt Brown made his debut for Leeds in the opening match of the 2011-12 season in the game against Southampton at St Marys Stadium. United manager Simon Grayson said: "We're delighted to finalise things with Michael. He is a player that I have long been interested in and I'm glad we've been able to sort things out for him to come here....He has experience and know-how, and he has played at the highest level. He fits the bill in terms of the quality of player I was looking to bring in and he will be a great addition to the squad.

Manager Simon Grayson signed Scotland International Ross McCormack from Cardiff City on the 27th August, 2010 for an undisclosed fee. Ross made his debut for the Whites just a day later coming on as substitute in the 70th minute in the 1-0 away win at Watford. United's manager Grayson was delight with the capture of Ross saying: "Ross is a player of good quality.... He's proved in the Championship he can score goals and hopefully he will continue that with us."

Leeds United: Lonergan, Connolly, Lees, Bruce, Pugh, Snodgrass, Brown, Clayton, Thompson, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Webber for Thompson, Forssell for Becchio.
