Exiting news, good article, good to read and good to share…

Leeds emerged from five years of hurt to inflict some pain of their own as Jermaine Beckford‘s first-half goal sent old enemies Manchester United crashing out of the FA Cup.

And when Beckford’s 20th goal of the campaign trundled past Tomasz Kuszczak, you could just sense the hosts would not be saved – not even by the five minutes of stoppage time that must have shredded a few nerves before that final glorious release.

The Yorkshire outfit were already on top when first Dimitar Berbatov, then Danny Welbeck, lost possession inside the Leeds half. Jonathan Howson spotted his opportunity and launched a long ball over the top for Beckford, who had stolen half a yard on Wes Brown. But Kuszczak was slow to react and Beckford had time to nip the ball beyond the Pole and send it rolling over the line.

As is their nature, United pushed and pushed. But the equaliser would not come as their failure to retain possession allowed Leeds to celebrate a famous victory.

Woot! Leeds Won! For full article, go here.
