    30 views Tottenham Hotspur Vs Leeds United. The last and only time Leeds beat us in the FA Cup was way back in 1971/72 and in that year they went on to win it, beating Arsenal in the final at a time when the FA Cup enthralled the nation... How things have Changed for the competition and Leeds, then one of the best and certainly most feared sides in the game. Now they lie in the third tier of the English game. Though seemingly on the way back towards the big time where they perhaps belong. Any win would now be seen as a giant killing as with their last victory over Man Utd, but as much as I imagine they would love to see Jermaine Beckford emulate Alan Clarke from 72, It is also likely that their priorities are more about gaining promotion than a place in the 5th round draw. Two defeats and draw since the win over United, could be down to anything, from just a bad run to taking their eye off of the prize, but you would expect them to come to White Hart Lane totally up for the tie. A narrow Carling Cup loss against Liverpool, will give them the feeling that they are worthy of competing with Spurs and it could be a game where we have to win the battle`s to win the war, something we failed to do on Wednesday. I would imagine that both sides will have an eye in next Tuesday and league games, possibly deemed more important. Neither side will want to field weakened sides and get embarrassed, but at the same time there won`t be too many risks taken with players not quite fit and an eye to keep the players fresh for mid-week.
