LUFC Who would you like in the FA Cup?

Sunday sees the draw for the FA Cup Third Round and who will Leeds get this season.

In the past three seasons, Leeds have landed plum draws away from home. Leeds made global headlines in 2010 when a solitary Jermaine Beckford goal secured a 1-0 win at Old Trafford for Leeds who were then in League One.

The last two seasons have seen Leeds drawn at Arsenal. In 2011 Leeds almost pulled off another huge cup upset when a Robert Snodgrass penalty saw them leading going into injury time. Cesc Fabregas equalised for Arsenal before winning the replay at Elland Road.

Last season, Thierry Henry marked his Arsenal return with the only goal of the game late on.

Whilst Leeds seem to get home draws in the League Cup, the FA Cup usually sees them on their travels.

Leeds have been drawn away in each of their last seven FA Cup draws, not having a home draw since Northampton Town in 2008.

The TV companies do like Leeds and thirteen of their last fourteen FA Cup ties have not been shown live, only the replay with Hereford United in 2007 not being shown. This included the First Round tie at Oldham in 2009 that was the first game to be shown live on the internet by the FA.

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock does like a cup run and he has already led Leeds to the Quarter-finals of the League Cup this season.

So who would you like?

Do you want a good run in the competition or is the cup competitions a distraction to what really counts and that is a return to the Premier League?

Another good day out to a Premier League side or a rare home draw?

You can make your choice on the latest poll on Vital Leeds on the right hand side of this page.
