Arsenal 1-0 Leeds:
The recently maligned Arsenal boss certainly did something right in bringing back Thierry Henry -- even if only for six-and-a-half weeks. He said after the goal: "It was a little bit a dream."
It's easy to believe, having witnessed a classic Henry goal, reminiscent of his glorious 'Invincible' days: coming in from the left, beating the offside, and sliding a right-footed cross across the 'keeper, (this time, Andy Longeran).
The Emirates was electrified.
For those of you that believe in fate -- especially in competitions like the FA Cup -- how about these twelve-related stats? Thierry Henry scored his 12th goal in 12 appearances against Leeds, with 12 minutes remaining, wearing the number 12 shirt in the year 2012.
Or perhaps it's all just a beautiful coincidence for Arsenal fans?
Either way, the Gunners are awaiting Aston Villa in round four, and Leeds are back to focusing on another promotion campaign.
Let the FA Cup dreams continue!
