Leeds played a huge role in the Carling Cup Final.

Some where the Ellen Road faithful must have been sick on Sunday afternoon. A look at Tottenham's key players in the Carling Cup Final against Chelski shows one thing: the spine of the team was connected to last great period in Leeds United History.

Robbie Keane called the Ellen Road home from 2000 to 2003 and scored 13 goals for the club. Jonathan Woodgate played a104 games for Leeds scoring five goals. Woodgate scored the winning goal for Spurs in extra time giving him his first major honor.

Every time you turned around Aaron Lennon was creating trouble for the Chelski defenders. Just think he was sold to Leeds for a million pounds, when Leeds first started to need money.

Just think if Peter Ridsdale had not sold his soul for playing in the Champions League, that might haven been Leeds walking up the steps to the get the Carling Cup, hey they did have enough former players play a key roll in the game.
