Neil Warnock was delighted with Leeds after 2-1 FA Cup win over Tottenham

Goals from Luke Varney and Ross McCormack gave Leeds a commanding lead, but Clint Dempsey's goal set up a tense finale and the hosts defended stubbornly to secure a place in the fifth round.

"It's a fabulous performance," said Warnock. "It's a great day for us. The atmosphere was good, two cracking goals.

"There were a lot of heroes today. It was a typical FA Cup tie today."

Warnock was delighted with defensive duo Sam Byram and Aidy White who helped to shackle a Spurs forward line which included Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon.

"I thought Aidy and Sam got done occasionally, but they've learned so much today against top-class opposition," he said.

"It's not very often that Aaron Lennon has an ineffective game as he did today, and we handled Gareth well as well."

Top-scorer Luciano Becchio was left out by the hosts as he is expected to leave Elland Road, but Warnock insisted his preparations had not been disrupted by the absence of the striker.

"If I'd have thought Becchio would have been fit today or in the right frame of mind I would still have played this team," he said.

"The lads knew on Wednesday I was going to play this team."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
