The visiting Eagles fell from their perch on top of the Championship with defeat as goals from Luciano Becchio and Paul Green rendered Peter Ramage's late header mere consolation.

Holloway said: "You have to give Leeds credit. They looked like the Leeds of old in the first 20 minutes by coming at us. We came through that period but didn't get the breaks.

"I thought we deserved at least a point and we did our supporters proud.

"Leeds got on the end of two things inside our box and scored two goals but there was a real scramble at the end and how the referee awarded Leeds a free-kick to relieve the pressure I don't know. The crowd got them that free-kick."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
