It had to come sometime and it has looked like happening over the past few games. Leeds United have been beaten in a League 1 game.
If it was going to happen then Carlilse was going to be the place. They are riding high and in front of their largest crowd since 1976 they hit three past sleepy Leeds in the second half. Had it been a game of just one half then Leeds would have been worthy winners with a 27th minute goal from Jermaine Beckford but we have to play well for 90 minutes not 45.
We managed to get back to the car, having come out of the Leeds Lib Dem Leadership Hustings early, to listen to the second half on Radio Leeds on the way home. It was just like last season in the second half depressing and inept. Leeds committing needless fouls and then defending weakly.
We have got to bounce back quickly and the trip to Dean Court to face lowly Bournemouth, in another sell out fixture on Tuesday, becomes a must win game.
