What the papers said.

The times: "having recently qualified so blissfully for the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup, Steve McClaren's players last night progressed to the same stage of the FA Cup. It was a dramatic, swirling, punch-drunk game that represented the boldest and the best that English football has to offer."

DAILY EXPRESS: "THREE months ago Steve McClaren's name was mud at Middlesbrough, now he is the magician after guiding his side to the FA Cup semi-finals with a replay win at the Riverside last night. With each passing game McClaren's stock is rising as the race for the England manager's job reaches its finale."

THE SUN: "STEVE McClaren boosted his chances of being the next England coach after another cup triumph. Goals from Fabio Rochemback and James Morrison, either side of a Bryan Hughes effort, earned Boro a 2-1 half-time lead before the tie caught fire after the break."

DAILY STAR: "BORO kept up their double trophy challenge as they booked an FA Cup semi-final spot against West Ham. But they were made to work hard and only made certain of their progress thanks to a brilliant individual goal from Mark Viduka, who tricked his way past two defenders before crashing a low shot into the bottom corner."
