Clarke Doesn't Warn Leeds
on Leeds Official site, Allan Clarke was more hopeful about Leeds'
chances. See Leeds United Football Club - The
legend Allan Clarke scored the only goal when United
beat Arsenal to win the FA Cup in 1972 and as David
O'Leary's side travel to Cardiff for their tricky
third round tie, Allan previews Sunday's game and
recalls how two Johnny Giles goals at Ninian Park the
same year helped Don Revie's boys to a 2-0 victory
over the Bluebirds on their way to Wembley.
Having disposed of
Bristol Rovers and Liverpool after a replay, when
Clarke scored both goals in a 2-0 victory at Elland
Road, United travelled down to the Welsh capital wary
of avoiding another cup upset like the famous
disaster at Colchester during the previous season.
But in front of
50,000 fans Leeds bossed the game as Giles came up
trumps. And it was the same three seasons later when
the two sides met in the third round, this time
United winning 4-1 at Elland Road, with 'Sniffer'
grabbing two of the Leeds goals.
So what do David
O'Leary's side face when they travel to the Welsh
capital this weekend?
