McDermott's side sealed their first away win of the season by coming from behind to win at Ipswich for the first time in 12 years and climbed into the top six.

"You have to believe in yourselves and we did that," McDermott told reporters. "We have a real good spirit as well and you can't come from behind like that if you don't."

The 2-1 win at Portman Road maintained Leeds' unbeaten start and they head into next weekend's home game against Harry Redknapp's QPR with plenty of confidence.

"It's been a good start," added McDermott. "We got a draw at Leicester and win at Ipswich.

"We've taken eight points from four games which is a nice average.

"But there's another 42 games still to go and we're not looking beyond the next one, so there is no question of anyone getting carried away or thinking too far in front."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
