'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Who do you want in the FA Cup?

Today sees the draw for the FA Cup Third Round as Leeds United along with the rest of the Championship and Premier League join the draw.

The competition has been running since August as non-league sides battled for a place in the first round when the League One and Two clubs joined the fray.

At the moment, there are only three non-league sides definitely in the draw for the third round, with Kidderminster Harriers, Macclesfield Town and Grimsby Town all winning on Saturday. There is still the possibility of three more sides from outside of the league joining them with Cambridge United, Tamworth and Wrexham yet to play their second round ties.

In recent years, Leeds have been pitted against some of the biggest sides in English football in the competition. In 2010, Leeds produced one of the biggest upsets in the history of the competition, when as a League One side they went to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United 1-0 thanks to a Jermaine Beckford goal.

The following two seasons, Leeds were unfortunate to go out to Arsenal in the third round. In 2011, only a Cesc Fabregas penalty in the final minute earned Arsenal a replay after Robert Snodgrass had fired Leeds into a second half lead. Arsenal eventually went through in the replay at Elland Road 3-1.

The following year, it took a solitary late goal by their returning hero Thierry Henry to beat Leeds 1-0.

Last year, Leeds were drawn against fellow championship opposition, eventually going through in a replay at St Andrews against Birmingham City.

So who do you fancy in the draw?

In the past five years in cup competitions, we have faced Arsenal (twice), Tottenham Hotspur (twice), Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle United and Southampton from the Premier League. Do you want Premier League opposition again?

Will you be happy with anyone as long as it is a home draw or would you like a game against lower league opposition, be it at Elland Road or away?

Done all the big sides in the Premier League - If we were to draw any of them, then I wouldn't mind a trip to Aston Villa. Personally, I would like a lower league side away from home. Will be a proper cup atmosphere.
