Mackems out to spoil the party.

Take cover: "Typical Boro" moment approaching.

Mighty Boro finally end their 128-year trophy drought, qualify for Europe and bring back the first cup to the North-east for 31 years... and what happens?

The smarmy Mackems contrive to overshadow Boro's Carling Cup achievement as a clear route to the FA Cup final amazingly opens for them.

With Man U and Arsenal still rolling about in the barrel they draw Millwall or Tranmere. And worse, if they get to the final, they are in Europe too, no matter how many they get spanked by in Cardiff because both United and the Gunners will - bar a miracle - be in the Champions League. You can just see it all now: Plucky underdogs, blah blah blah, massive club blah blah... wonderful supporters...

If they win it - please God no! - then Boro's triumph will immediately be tarnished.

And you just know they will win that elusive North-east Team of the Year gong. Grrrrr. Come on Millwall! Or Tranmere!
