If you thought the FA Cup had lost it’s excitement, you were in for a treat today. One of the games that grabbed the attention was Middlesbrough’s sensational 2-0 victory against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Boro were clinical and shocked the Premier League title contenders, and the Twitter world, making a memorable moment for football fans worldwide. On top of this, the Tweets were exceptional, as you would expect.
There was references to Arab money, a previous 8-1 defeat to Boro in history and just general ‘oh my God’ reactions. We’ve got some of the best ones here- long may the magic of the cup continue.
LOOK AT THIS! Man City 0-2 Middlesbrough, and surely Kike’s goal makes it a day full of FA Cup magic!

But congrats to Middlesbrough. They taught us a lesson in how to be clinical and take your chances, while we wasted 20-odd attempts.
