Normally I would love a non-league team to make the third round at the expense of the League One promotion favourites but I was overjoyed last night when I saw that Leeds United beat Kettering 5-1 after extra time to set up a third round meeting with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It’s a shame the game is not at Elland Road: it would be even more satisfying to do them in front of their own vile fans. But at least we get to meet them again: beating Leeds is something I miss very much. And we have reasons to be angry with them: they stopped producing great players for us. Cantona, Irwin, Ferdinand all became world-class here but since the transfer of Alan Smith our little feeder club has not been doing its job well.

This January promises to be fun: cup clashes with Leeds and Manchester Citeh? Bring them on!
