Seeing as it’s League Cup week, I think it’s only fitting that we delve back and dip into the archives.

Now even though Leeds got knocked out in the last round of the competition, that shouldn’t mean we have to miss out on all the fun.

Yesterday marked the 16th anniversary of one of the most, well I won’t say iconic, but certainly memorable goals scored at Elland Road. It was memorable because it came from a rather unusual source, goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

With Leeds facing elimination at the hands of Swindon Town, the goalkeeper managed to get his head on a corner from Michael Bridges and find the back of the net to send the game into extra time. Whilst he would later go on to save the decisive penalty in the resulting shootout, it’s fair to say that this moment was very much the highlight of the night.

So when the club decided to commemorate the anniversary by posting a video of the famous goal onto their official Twitter page, it certainly brought a lot of memories flooding back for a number of Leeds fans.
