Saturday's hard-fought fourth-round victory over Aldershot handed the Teessiders a fifth-round clash with either European champions Chelsea or League One side Brentford at the Riverside Stadium and their manager can hardly wait.

Mowbray said: "I grew up watching Boro at Ayresome Park and I remember some amazing FA Cup fifth-round ties.

"I think the FA Cup starts getting exciting at the fifth round stage. You are one win away from the quarter-finals.

"Cup football is exciting because it's something different. You are away from 46 games of hard slog.

"Whatever happens, as I hoped, we won't be playing another Championship team and we are also at home, so you can't ask for any more than that."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
