Leeds United fans comment and react to Salford City draw

It’s only a cup, at least now we can focus on the league! That is the mantra that a beaten side often use when unceremoniously dumped out of any cup competition at an early stage.

That is something that Leeds United know all too well from recent experience. In two consecutive FA Cup competitions the Whites have been knocked out by lower league opposition in non-league Sutton United and League Two Newport County.

The demons of those exits could very well come back to haunt the Whites yet agains this season as they’ve been drawn away in the opening round of the Carabao Cup against recently promoted Salford City.

To add extra spice to the proceeedings, Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United outfit will be playing against a side whose shareholders include former Manchester United stars Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham. It is one of English football’s most embittered rivalries, and it was a draw enough to elicit this tweet from Gary Neville:

It is bound to be a game that will attract the attention and interest of many neutral. A side just promoted to the league football ladder against a side managed by one of football’s luminary coaches. For a low-key, first-round tie this is one that is bound to fizzle away.

With the interest, with the background, with the needle, it is a tie that is bound to get considered for Sky Sports coverage. It is also an upcoming tie that has garnered more than a certain degree of interest from Leeds United fans. Here’s what some of them have been saying.
