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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
