Andre Villas-Boas: Disappointed with Tottenham's first half

Luke Varney gave Championship side Leeds a 15th-minute lead in the fourth-round tie and Ross McCormack made it 2-0 five minutes after the interval.

Spurs, who were without striker Jermain Defoe due to a slightly twisted hip, pulled a goal back on 58 minutes but were unable to find an equaliser.

"Leeds made the most of their opportunities," Villas-Boas said. "It was good to come back into the game but we maybe could have done a little better.

"Leeds were really up for it. We had some opportunities to go 2-2, but maybe not too clear-cut.

"Our second half was definitely better than the first, but we could have done better not to go 2-0 down.

"Unfortunately today we missed Defoe, who always gives us an option, through injury, but we'll have him back for the Norwich game."

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.
