Not surprised at all when I saw the team sheet and they didn't look like they wanted to go through. Clearly Leeds, Brighton and Newcastle sole focus is promotion.

and you can't blame them. Liverpool on the other hand have. why not go for the cup when you only have top 4 and no Europe. very strange

Good on Sutton United, that's what the cup is all about.

I hope they get a big prem team in the next round away from home, it can finance a club like Sutton for years.

As for Leeds, i agree it means little (apart from the slight embarrassment of losing to a none league team but little wonder when you play the reserves), and promotion has to be the aim for the season.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

The "FA Weakened Team Cup" seems to be what it's all about among the big clubs these days.

Not sure why Leeds see themselves as a big club though, unless the policy is to mirror the arrogance of their delusional fanbase.

They aren't big enough or good enough to be fielding reserves in the FA Cup.

I think you're the only delusional one if you think it's only "big teams" that put out weakened teams.

Don't have to be a big team to field a weakened team, just have more important targets whether that be promotion, relegation or Europe.

I can understand teams with bigger aims fielding weaker sides. what I don't get are mid table premier league sides doing it. if I was a west brom, everton fan etc i'd be livid if my team did that

Rather than deflecting attention on to what other far bigger clubs than Leeds might be doing, I'd be focusing upon why I'm not livid about my team effectively throwing an FA Cup fixture and why I've become such a pathetic excuse of a fan who is satisfied with a defeat against non-league opposition.

Yeah I agree, some of those teams in that 7th-13th gap really should be doing more in the cup.
