Clayton played in the same Leeds side as Brown under Simon Grayson before being sold to Huddersfield in the summer, but the two Mancunians remain close friends and have been winding each other up this week.

"I'll text him now and tell him I voted for him in the team of the year!" said Clayton. "Mike Brown is funny. The card school from back in the day when we used to Tweet about and stuff, we still text each other quite a lot.

"Hopefully Browny can play this time and not be on the bench and then we can have a good scrap on the pitch."

Clayton, who celebrated in front of Leeds boss Neil Warnock after scoring in his side's 4-2 defeat to Leeds earlier in the season, is also expecting some banter with the Elland Road faithful.

"If the crowd react to me it will just add to the atmosphere and to the occasion," he said. "It will make me feel a big part of it which will make me feel good, so I can't wait for the game.

"I don't want any fans not to like me, especially the Leeds fans because they were so good to me, but if the other team's supporters pick you out you've obviously done something wrong in their eyes and something right for your team to upset them.

"To be a big character in football I think is a good thing."

Clayton added: "Leeds are looking for a couple of wins to get in the play-offs and we're looking to try and secure ourselves so we can maybe relax a little bit towards the end of the season and start playing some good football.

"It's a good game for both teams. It's a must-win for me after last time and hopefully the rest of the lads are of that mindset."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
