It’s game day everybody!

Of course the big news yesterday was the rumors of Rob Green moving to rival Huddersfield Town after losing the starting goalkeeper job to Felix Wiedwald. Leeds are reportedly interested in bringing back Andy Lonergan from Wolverhampton as a replacement for Green. We said yesterday that if Green wants to leave and sit on the bench someplace else, Leeds should set him free.

Here are some links to get ready for the match against Forest this afternoon.
