Leeds United certainly made a point last night in the FA Cup third round against Arsenal as they gave the Premier League side a real scare for much of the tie at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have got Mikel Arteta at the helm now and for the first half of the game last night he will have been very annoyed with what he saw.
Indeed, Leeds were the better side by a mile and looked the top flight team with Marcelo Bielsa evidently drilling his players to perfection as they ran amok.
They did, however, end up losing and players and fans alike will think ‘what if’ with them having enough chances to bury the tie by half-time.
Even so, they deserve plenty of credit and Barry Douglas sent out this message after full-time:
He was handed a dose of praise by fans online, too, so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said on social media:
Well played, Barry!

Fantastic effort, didn’t need a cup run. We made our point, best outcome for me. It’s all about the league.
