The visit to Spurs will be another glamour game, and it was a bit striking that we were the last team out of the hat for the second draw in a row, but it does not really matter if we lose. The priority was always automatic promotion, and the triumph at Old Trafford proved that we are a club which deserves to be in the top grade. It was probably our best performance since the Champions League days of 00/01, and possibly our best away league result since the 91/92 championship season. Beckford going would be a blow, but it is much more important to keep Grayson

They will probably be in the same division next season so he is as well where he is.

hope he stays where he is

Leeds are on the up and long term would be a better bet than Burnley

Spot on.  I think he would be mad to move now,  Leeds will be in the Championship next season and will be relishing it, he is best off staying.  Now if he could only get Beckford to stay.

not sure about that penalty at the end but hey Leeds deserved at least a Replay, Beckford looked as good as any of the Spurs strikers today says a lot really!

well done Leeds, they fought till the last and earned a moneyspinning replay against the Spurs.

I am happy for the leeds heads on here, that team is showing they have what it takes to compete with the big boys.

was never a fan of leeds but fair play to them and the genuine fans for sticking by them. will be interesting to see how many utd and liverpool fans stick by their club when they go the same way.

when Man United were relegated in 1974 they were still getting some of the biggest crowds in England!

Everyone know's Liverpool &  Man United are the two biggest named clubs in England & maybe the world, having Genuine Fan's sticking by them will never be a problem

Better to Compare Leeds with Man city they also dropped two divisions & the hardcore fan's remained

Am seriously worried about the important job getting done - getting promoted; this shite gets another 10 days run, and a trip to Carlisle midweek for the Daf Trucks whatyamacallit before another tough fixture against Colchester on Saturday.  And Norwich have gone top.  Jaysus.

Agreed Billy - I share your worries which, after tonight, have now multiplied tenfold. It would appear that this Cup run is becoming too much of a distraction - Leeds have had a couple of great Cup nights - time now to bid it good-bye before the primary aim of the season disappears in a puff of smoke!   >:(
