Boro beaten and left complaining again - why they deserved nothing...

Middlesborough were deservedly beaten by United in the FA Cup quarter final replay last night courtesy of a second half Ronaldo penalty. The flying winger had been brought down inside the penalty area by Johnathan Woodgate - who apart from that had a great game, during the first half he denied Rooney a certain goal with a last ditch tackle.

The penalty award did not go down well with the Boro players or management, as it was the third awarded against them in games with United this season. Because of the history between the two sides there was always going to be a lot of carping, but as Ferguson rightly said after the game "I don't know what the fuss was about, it was a penalty". Quite.

IF you take the legs of an opposition player inside the area, then do not be surprised if the referee awards a spot kick.

Apart from the penalty, United created by far the better chances with Rooney spurning at least two guilt edged chances, while the visitors barely tested United's keeper.

It would be a brave man who backs against United gracing the hallowed turf of the new Wembley now.
