Leeds lost to Arsenal last night and are out of the FA Cup.

This may surprise you, but yesterday’s defeat is probably the best thing that could have happened to Leeds.

Before I list the reasons behind my rather bizarre statement, I will say that had Leeds beaten Arsenal, I would be happy. Happy, but not jubilant, like the time we beat scum, as a League One team.

Here’s why, when it comes to the cup, it’s better to be out than in (for this season, at least).

  • Leeds ‘only’ lost 1-0, to a decent Arsenal side (well… decent in the second half).
  • Leeds played really well, surprising and impressing many television pundits and opposition fans.
  • No injuries or suspensions to Leeds players as a result of the match.
  • Leeds fans were superb. All 8,000 of them. Along with the players, they impressed a lot of people. As well as singing throughout the match, the supporters behaved impeccably. This is at a time where sadly racism, abuse and violence has become a problem for some other clubs. I’m proud to say not at mine.
  • Most importantly – being out of the cup, means that all efforts can be put into the league and getting promoted.

Hopefully next season, Arsenal v Leeds will be a league fixture… with a reversed scoreline!

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
