All of is here at the Cliffe Minstermen are looking forward to next weeks Capital One Cup Draw.
Over a few years now Cup draws have not been kind to us. Until last season we always seemed to be getting drawn away from home, and also not getting a real glamorous draw in terms of opposition or a deadly local rival to add a little spice to the proceedings
Out of the 17 seeded teams that York City could draw for me there is only one game that I want above all others. An away tie at Leeds United has always been my holy grail. The last time the two clubs met was in the 87/88 season but I did not start going to matches until much later into that season. The reason why I want this game more than any other is because of the area that we live, go to work and having gone to school Leeds United fans were everywhere. Most of them plastic ones but still I know plenty who go to matches. I have close family members who follow Leeds and even my partner is from Leeds.
Over the years I have had more mickey taking from Leeds fans than any other and it's always been the dream to beat them at Bellend Road and shut them up once and for all. Even now you can still meet a Manchester United fans anywhere and they have got nothing on us after that famous night. It would be great to add Leeds fans to that list.
I am happy to entertain other teams in the draw but not Donny Rotherham Port Vale or Bradford. Saying that you can bet your bottom dollar it will be one of those four teams we get.......AWAY!
