Our reward for beating Wolves in the fourth round of the F.A. Cup is an away tie against West Ham. The Middlesbrough lads last played West Ham in the cup three years ago when we were knocked out by the eventual runner-up in the semi final.
As I remember it was just four days before our UEFA Cip final showdown in Eindhoven and Steve McClaren rested a couple of key players for the match and it back fired as the Hammers beat us 1-0. This was also the game that Mark Schwarzer injured his cheekbone, which led to him wearing the mask of Zorro in the UEFA Cup final.
Let's hope we can take revenge on the Hmmers in three weeks time.
Come On Boro
