It's Middlesbrough in Round Six! (if they beat Chelsea and we beat Man Utd...)

So the benefit of playing tomorrow is that we were always going to see who our potential opponents might be in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

This time the cup draw gods have thrown us a home tie against Chelsea or Middlesbrough. Another fantastic draw then....

Still, much like a couple in their late 60's from Birmingham finding out they could have won a speedboat on Bullseye, I can't feel too gutted knowing that to even get there we'll have to beat Manchester United. If anything, this draw helps take the sting away from any potential defeat.

However, lets not be too disappointed, after all, to win the cup from this stage would be just about the biggest and most unlikely story since... well probably Bradford.
