Remember when Jermaine Beckford did a thing at Old Trafford? Of course you do.
What a moment it was to see the then League One side successfully taking on the behemoths of Manchester United in their own backyard, back when Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the roost and they were actually quite good.

Former Leeds striker Beckford, who announced his retirement from football this year, was a decent talent back in the day, netting 84 times in 147 games. However impressive that is though, there’s one goal more fantastic than any other: the 19th-minute stunner that sent Leeds sailing into the next round of the FA Cup.

“Jonny Howson has put in one of the best passes I’ve been on the end of.” ?
“I got stuck in two minds.”
“I cut it enough that it went under Kuszczak. It was the most surreal moment.” ?
