Devil praise for Leeds

Sir -- As a lifelong Manchester United supporter, I have to congratulate Leeds United on a third round F.A Cup shock at Old Trafford. This victory is representative of the essence of the beautiful game.

Any team, by being match fit and well organised, defending as a team and attacking as a team, being the best that they can be, getting the basics right and regardless of the opposition and ultimately the result which are uncontrollable factors, can be competitive.

Congratulations to Leeds United who adhered to the fundamentals of the beautiful game and emerged victorious.
