Swansea Away For Boro

  Boro got another Premier draw as reward for knocking out Sunderland in the Capital One Cup. We were drawn away to Swansea in the 5th Round to be played in the week of Monday Dec 10th. I guess it was absolutely nailed on or stonewall as they say in football punditry that Boro would be drawn away again. What else could we expect? Twelve times in a row now in the league Cup we have come out as the away side. Maybe the title for this article should have been Boro's Twelfth Night! If we ....
