Ross McCormack's brilliant goal helped Leeds cause one of the shocks of the fourth round against a below-par Tottenham
An incredible end to the match. Bale curls the free-kick in - and Friedel gets his head to the ball, but it only loops up into the air. Leeds clear - and then attack, realising Tottenham's goalkeeper is way out of position. From way inside his own half, Somma passes the ball towards the empty net ... and the referee blows the final whistle as it rolls in! But Leeds don't care. Well, Michael Brown does, but that doesn't count. Nor does the goal, but Leeds are into the fifth round. They've done it again. Thanks for reading. Bye.
90 min+4: A huge roar as Bale is tackled by Byram at the expense of a throw-in. Rory Delap Gareth Bale hurls it long. It's headed away. More cheers. But Spurs keep pressing and - shock, horror - Michael Brown concedes a ludicrous free-kick on the right with a foul on Parker. He's booked. Friedel is up.
90 min+3: Ross McCormack is replaced by Davide Somma. Leeds are just running down the clock now.
90 min+2: Here's Tattoo Man.
90 min+1: In the first minute of added time, Leeds replace Diouf with Jason Pearce.
90 min: Oh, what a chance for Obika to rescue Spurs! Assou-Ekotto sprayed a sublime pass over the top for the striker. Obika brought it down brilliantly and looked certain to score from close range but his shot was somehow deflected over the bar by a desperate tackle from Peltier. What marvellous defending. Caulker's header from the resulting corner is deflected wide.
89 min: Tottenham's frustration is growing and now Assou-Ekotto has been booked. Leeds are hardly hanging on here. It's so listless from Spurs.
88 min: "Hi," says Alex Netherton.
87 min: The ESPN camera pan to a Leeds fan in the crowd whose face is completely covered in tattoos. He's just standing there with an admirable poker face, as if it's the most normal thing in the world.
86 min: The hapless Caulker shanks a clearance out of play, the ball clanging out off his shin. He looks like he's never played football before, the poor bloke. He's been atrocious.
84 min: Expert timewasting from Diouf, who waits for the slightest bit of contact from Parker and then throws himself to the floor, winning a cheap free-kick.
83 min: Parker rides a challenge from Austin on the edge of the area but Peltier heads his shot away. Leeds have defended so well. But there's time left for them to crack.
82 min: It's not exactly backs-to-the-wall stuff from Leeds. Tottenham have struggled to get any momentum going, even after Dempsey's goal. They've been so disappointing. I'm sure Villas-Boas didn't see this coming.
79 min: Dear lord. Under no pressure at all, Dembele turns around and expertly picks out McCormack in his own half. He knocks the ball past Vertonghen, who can't get out of the way and concedes a free-kick. He's even booked, which is a bit harsh.
77 min: It's just not running for Spurs. On the edge of the area, Parker slides a pass through to Obika but Byram's desperate challenge ends up hitting the striker and going out for a goal-kick to Leeds. Byram is only 19 but has been really impressive.
76 min: Dempsey appeals for handball in the area as his shot from the left strikes Byram. The referee waves away his cries for a penalty. "If AVB Is Hank Scorpio don't you agree that Mousa Dembele is a dead ring for the Rock?" says Mr Dresner.
73 min: Bale slams a cross-shot into the area. It comes to Parker whose touch sits up invitingly for Dempsey to hit on the volley. It could well have been heading in but Lees deflects it wide.
72 min: ... Ross McCormack should make the game safe for Leeds. Spurs again fail to deal with a long punt, Assou-Ekotto falling over and allowing McCormack to race away from him, in a similar position to where he scored. He's got an even clearer sight of goal this time but Friedel blocks his shot. That could be crucial.
71 min: Wow. On the left, Bale nutmegs one defender and then beats the lunging Byram with an outstanding pirouette. His cross comes to nothing but is only cleared as far as Dembele, whose fierce shot is deflected wide. The corner is cleared, and...
69 min: The siege from Spurs is yet to materialise. Indeed there's more kamikaze defending from Spurs as Caulker and Friedel leave a bouncing ball to each other in the six-yard box. Green can't do anything with it though.
66 min: Bale tries to put Dempsey in again but his pass is too heavy. Spurs are pressing though. Meanwhile it's a Kyle-off. Walker on, Naughton off.
64 min: Assou-Ekotto is barged over on the edge of the area. No free-kick. A strange call. "Can't say I've noticed any real bias (unlike Bryant, who was so anti-Chelsea earlier that he'll probably receive death threats on Twitter), but surely Alan White is aware that Leeds are never going to be 'everyone's second team'?" says Mark Gillies. "Bates, Warnock, Diouf... I mean, good god."
63 min: Obika's done nothing since coming on. Rubbish.
59 min: Tottenham immediately bring on Jon Obika and Mousa Dembele for Gylfi Sigurdsson and Tom Huddlestone. Obika is a 22-year-old striker who has spent much of his career out on loan.
A hush falls over Elland Road. Despite being marked by two Leeds defenders, Bale manages to send in a cross to the near post from the left and Dempsey darts in front of his marker to guide a deft header into the far corner. Ashdown stood and watched. Another fine finish and Leeds must fear the worst.
56 min: Dembele is going to come on soon. What's happened to Gylfi Sigurdsson this season by the way? He's really struggled to make an impact. "Al (Ally to his friends?) White is having a laugh," says Ethan Dean-Richards. "You're clearly biased towards both teams. You put Tottenham's lineup up first because you prioritise them and Leeds' up second to give them the big build up. You're biased equally to both teams, which is an outrage if you ask me. And Ally White did ask me, because we are friends."
55 min: "As a Spurs fan I am really disappointed in this," understates Thomas Boschat. "It is one thing to be losing to a team in a lower league, that is the magic of the cup, but it is quite another to lose when your players are complacent and seem to have expected the win before the game even begun."
54 min: What a miss from Dempsey! Lennon escapes down the right and knocks the ball to the far post where Dempsey somehow shanks wide of an open goal. Ok, it bounced up awkwardly as it came to him but he's a Premier League footballer. A let-off for Leeds and don't they know it.
52 min: Tottenham have been the better side but on the few occasions that Leeds have attacked, their defence has crumbled.
This is a quite magnificent goal from Ross McCormack and Leeds have taken a firm grip on this Cup tie. Again the defending from Tottenham was risible, but take nothing away from the quality of the finish. He was found by a clearance up field and laid it off to Diouf, before peeling away off Vertonghen. Tottenham back four was caught horrible square and it was so easy for Diouf to lob a pass over the defence for McCormack. He still had a lot to do as he was 40 yards from goal but he held off Caulker, cut inside the defender and back on to his left foot from the right of the area and then bent a superb shot into the top-left corner from 16 yards out. What a goal! Friedel didn't have a chance.
48 min: Worryingly for Leeds, though, Dembele could be about to enter the fray soon.
47 min: Tottenham are still in the dressing room. Someone tell them the second half has started! A terrible ball out of defence goes straight to Varney who goes on a positive run into the Spurs area, only to be stopped in his tracks by a perfectly timed tackle from Huddlestone.
46 min: Here we go again. Leeds get the second half underway and they're quickly out of the blocks, Byram winning a corner down the right.
"Can anyone explain to me how el hadji diouf still plays football?" says Fraser Duguid. "He is as angry as Joey Barton(maybe worse). Wouldn't be surprised if he was sent off today. Good luck Spurs."
"Could you be any more biased against Leeds in your calling of this game?" says Alan White. They tell me there's no north/south divide. Good God."
Yes, I could. Get ready for some serious bias. Hold on to your hat, Al. Can I call you, Al? I feel like we've bonded.
The half time whistle blows and Tottenham find themselves in a bit of a pickle at the break. They've dominated but Luke Varney's early goal is the difference. A word of caution though: Leeds led Chelsea in the Capital One Cup here last month and look how that turned out.
45 min+1: There will be two minutes of added time.
45 min: McCormack almost makes it 2-0 to Leeds! Once again Tottenham's defending was dreadful. Varney just headed a long ball into the general direction of McCormack and Vertonghen, much like Anton Ferdinand yesterday, let it drop over his head. McCormack ran clear but couldn't squeeze his finish under Friedel. How big could that miss be?
43 min: Austin catches Sigurdsson's heel and he's down injured. And he didn't even get a free-kick.
42 min: Huddlestone's shot from the edge of the area is blocked by Brown, who's having a stormer against his old club. "So that's an actual song, performed by an actual band?!" says Reid Finlayson. "Jazzus, here I thought it was an advertising jingle. Probably made more money in Coke royalties than record sales, I imagine."
39 min: Dempsey spins and hits a swerving shot that Ashdown has to watch carefully as it moves in the air. He beats it out and Lees handily prods it back to him. Isn't that a backpass?
37 min: Brown clips a searching ball from left to right for McCormack. He takes it down but under pressure from Vertonghen, his shot bobbles harmlessly wide. Leeds want a corner and get themselves into a funk when they don't want one, but there wasn't a deflection.
35 min: Scott Parker manages to steer a ball into the area for Dempsey but it's too far ahead of him and Byram boots it clear. I'm not quite sure how Leeds are winning this but there you go.
34 min: "I'm sure you're dying to know that the UK No. 1 single from January 2 to January 27 1972 was...I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing by the New Seekers," says William Marzouk. "How that relates to the gonad clutching Spurs wall I'm not sure, but I think it does."
32 min: Leeds are struggling to get out of their half now.
30 min: Gareth Bale shows up for the first time in a while and, to be fair, this was superb skill. Leeds looked to have the situation under control as two players tracked his run down the right but a quick swerve and a burst of pace saw him nutmeg Peltier and zoom into the area for a confrontation with Ashdown. The goalkeeper spreads himself at Bale's feet and the winger could clip it over him. Instead he stabs a finish into Ashdown's body ... and although the ball squirts up into the six-yard box, it all ends with a goal-kick to Leeds.
29 min: This is a lovely effort from Tom Huddlestone. With his back to goal, he flicked the ball over his own head, completely throwing off his marker, and then drilled a low left-footer towards the bottom-right corner which Ashdown did well to push away. That could have taken him by surprise. But didn't.
26 min: For a moment, it threatens to get pwopa nawtee in the middle of the park as Parker and Brown both fly into full-blooded challenges in the centre circle. Ouch. The ball suddenly breaks kindly for Lennon though, who speeds at the backtracking Leeds defence. He pokes a pass through to Dempsey, who shoots straight at Ashdown with the outside of his right boot. He could and should have taken that on.
24 min: Gareth Bale's quick but he's not that quick. Parker tries to release him on the right but his pass is too heavy. Spurs have been lacklustre since falling behind.
23 min: Leeds fans are singing songs about European champions. I didn't know they liked Chelsea so much.
21 min: This is a nice move from Leeds. Diouf somehow squeezes a cross into the area from the left and McCormack manages to get ahead of his marker, shielding the ball well. He has his back to goal but doesn't try to turn, for Varney had made a clever run around him. McCormack laid the ball off for him and Varney's fierce shot from the edge of the area flew over the top.
20 min: Assou-Ekotto has a go from 25 yards out but slices his effort high and wide. The worry for Tottenham will be their lack of punch up front, with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor both missing today. They need a big game from Clint Dempsey in particular.
18 min: But Tottenham's threat going forward is still strong. Assou-Ekotto drives a cross into the area from the left and Dempsey has a swing and a miss. They stay on the attack, though, and Naughton's cross to the far post is headed over by Sigurdsson, whose elusive moment is causing problems for Leeds.
17 min: That really was awful defending from Tottenham and also totally against the run of play.
The commentator's curse strikes! This is absolutely preposterous defending from Tottenham. There looked to be no threat at all as a long ball was clipped forward. Diouf had a half-hearted flick at it, looking to release Varney but nothing should have come from it. But for whatever reason Kyle Naughton and Steven Caulker both nonchalantly watched the ball drift past them, the pair of them looking like they didn't have a care in the world, and it ran through to Varney. He sped away down the left flank, ignored the screams of McCormack to his right, opened up his body and curled the ball past Friedel with the inside of his right foot and into the far corner.
13 min: "I just want to say those people in the wall are awesome!!" says Fraser Duguid. "Wish we could go back to the olden days."
12 min: Huddlestone sends a corner in from the left and Dempsey puts a free header over from six yards out. He was just stretching to reach that as the cross was a bit high so you'll see better chances than that. Nonetheless the marking was dreadful.
11 min: Leeds aren't putting enough pressure on the ball and that spells trouble. Again Parker has an age to play the pass, clipping one over the top for Bale to reach on the left. He's forced wide and his cutback is mopped up, but this spells trouble for Leeds. Tottenham are going to score soon.
9 min: Leeds are sitting off Spurs, who are dominating. Romance please! Romance!
7 min: Now Tottenham are settling into a groove, Leeds giving them too much time to pick their passes. First Vertonghen swings a cross in from the left. Sigurdsson's header flashes straight at Ashdown. Then Parker releases Dempsey with a clever pass, again down the right, where Leeds look weak. Dempsey has a sight of goal but scuffs his shot badly. A waste.
6 min: Bale scampers in behind for the first time, racing on to Dempsey's slide-rule pass down the inside-right channel. Peltier is forced to concede a corner with a crucial last-ditch challenge.
5 min: It's a low-key start here. A lot of midfield hustling and harrying, basically. Tottenham are yet to really get into their stride.
3 min: Brad Friedel is shielding his eyes from the sun. He needs a cap. That's not a dig at the bald community. "Loving that picture," says Simon McMahon. "Why don't defensive walls link arms any more? Just one of many reasons why football (puts flat cap on and takes whippet out for a walk) was better back in the day."
2 min: Diouf whips the corner in and Friedel, with the sun in his eyes, punches it away.
And we're off! Tottenham, attacking from right to left in the first half, take a textbook kick off. It's not long before Michael Brown is snapping into midfield challenges though. Welcome to Leeds. They're on the attack straight away too. Caulker's caught in possession and Varney charges down the left, winning an early corner.
And after Brentford's 2-2 draw with Chelsea, here come the teams at Elland Road. Leeds, you won't be surprised to learn, are all in white. Tottenham are wearing their black and grey away kit. Could we be about to see another shock? There's only one place to find out*.
*Not strictly true. There are many places to find out.
"Ever seen a guy throw away a pair of shoes before?" asks Steve Waterhouse. Yes. Why?
Once Leeds United were giants. Now they slay them. You all know the story by now: Champions League semi-final, Peter Ridsdale's dream, the goldfish tank, Seth Johnson's well-deserved mega-contract and so on. Leeds fans won't want reminding of everything that's gone on in the last 10 years at their club, but it's impossible to ignore. Yet even though they aren't, as the chant goes, famous any more, Dirty Leeds are still more than capable of putting a few noses out of joint. Making a nuisance of themselves to Premier League sides has almost become their raison d'etre these days and Tottenham will have to have their game faces on if they are to avoid being added to the list of scalps.
It all started with that remarkable 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the third round of the FA Cup in 2010 and in the next round they held Tottenham to a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane, before being beaten in a replay at Elland Road. A year later they were only denied victory in the third round at Arsenal thanks to a last-minute dive by Theo Walcott and this season they have already beaten Everton 2-1 at Elland Road, while for 10 delirious minutes in December they led Chelsea 1-0 in their quarter-final. Before, er, losing 5-1. Hmmm, that's not actually a particularly long list of scalps. Two, to be precise, and Bradford have already managed more than that this season but we've committed to this preamble now, so it'll have to do. It was either this or something about the magic of the FA Cup.
Team news: Luciano Becchio has been left out by Leeds after his transfer request - and didn't his club conduct themselves well this week - while Tottenham's top scorer, Jermain Defoe, hasn't travelled. Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker and Mousa Dembele are also rested by Tottenham manager Hank Scorpio.
Leeds: Ashdown; Byram, Peltier, Lees, White; Green, Brown, Austin; Varney, Diouf, McCormack. Subs: Kenny, Pearce, Tonge, Norris, Somma, Hall, Dawson.
Tottenham: Friedel; Naughton, Caulker, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto; Huddlestone, Parker; Lennon, Sigurdsson, Bale; Dempsey. Subs: Gomes, Walker, Townsend, Livermore, Dembele, Dawson, Obika.
