The Roses Rivalry Returns
The decade that began with Leeds United atop the Premier League table has ended with the very same club spending its third successive season, in the third flight of English Football. Much like the start of the 2000s, Manchester United is the reigning Premier League champion and has enjoyed recent success in Europe.
Yet, the new decade will renew the rivalry that has been among the biggest in English Football since the 1960s. This weekend, Leeds will travel to Old Trafford to renew hostilities with Manchester United in the FA Cup Third Round. The Roses Rivalry has returned, and all of Lancashire and Yorkshire will be keeping an eye on the events at Old Trafford.
