We played well today. We played as a team and beat high-flying Premiership club, Spurs by closing them down with a style of play we never see in League games. Was this because we didn’t have Becchio in the side (which, according to Warnock, is why the team uses long-ball tactics – nothing to do with Warnock’s tactics, of course!) or was it because Cup matches add more to LUFC’s coffers than League games!
It will be interesting to see how well Leeds plays in its next League game against Cardiff. Somehow, I doubt that it will show the same tenacity as, heaven forefend, Leeds could be back on the road to promotion and its new owners, GFH Bates, will have to be transparent about the club’s ownership!

My fellow city fans seem happy with the draw. Most commenting that there will be a great atmosphere. Odds on for an early kick off with a large police presence. You'll have the South Stand and around 6000 tickets. Should be a cracker. Hopefully my lot will fare better than our last FA cup meeting at Maine Road. You walloped up 5-2. Can't afford to buy you all tickets unfortunately haha. If you're going enjoy the day and stay safe.
Ok so I have shot myself in both legs Tom.
Unbelievable and apparently fully deserving of the win.
As you say why can't we play like that all the time or at least most of it.
We will have to get Dunster to treat us all to tickets for the next round which I fear will be our last, but you never know.

My tacticts and morale boosting team talk before the game hit the spot and proved what a good manager I am. Ken Bates gave me the go ahead to rouse them up---there's good quick money to be made in this cup.---I'll be telling you how good I am for the next 48 hours.
