Bradley And Patrick

Description: Bradley Johnson United's Midfielder and injured Australian International Patrick Kisnorbo here walk down the sidelines towards the United dugout before the Football League First Division game against Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium on the 17th April, 2010. Patrick was stretchered off the field in the home game against Millwall on 22nd March suffering with an Achilles injury. Despite missing the end of season run in for United and the chance to represent Australia in the World cup Paddy still turns up home and away to cheer on his teammates.

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.

Defender Kisnorbo was signed by Simon Grayson on the 22nd July, 2009 in a two year deal coming from Leicester City. Kisnorbo turned down a host of Championship clubs who were also after his signature to join the Whites. 'Paddy' made his debut for United in the 2009-10 season opener against Exeter City at Elland Road where he picked up a head wound that required 12 stitches. United won the game 2-1 and Kisnorbo stayed on the park througout. On 12th August, 2009 Kisnorbo brought Leeds United Football Club another landmark, his 15th appearance for Australia in the game against the Republic of Ireland made Patrick Leeds United's 100th full international player. Kisnorbo also picked up a couple of stitches above his right brow in the game with Ireland for his efforts. His bravery and strong performances soon made Kisnorbo a favourite with the Elland Road faithful.
