Derby and Joan Club: Middlesbrough still to beat. Arsenal to come?

Sunderland the play, in Paris

Right, we got back into the game, maybe should have found the strength to win but cannot seriously complain about the result.

And the prize of a home draw against Arsenal is as much as any club should need to raise their game and get through a replay against a team from a division below.

But it’s a derby, it’s the cup and anything can happen.

There’s been plenty of coverage already of Sunderland 1 Boro 1:

* Sixer’s Sevens: Campbell’s super saver

* Martin O’Neill’s Musings: brilliant McClean, cool Campbell

More is to come. Plus the Norwich City – Wednesday night’s return to Premier action – “Who are You?”.

All from now until Thursday-ish is in the capable hands of Monsieur Salut’s stand-in editor, Joan Dawson. I am off to Pars to see Sunderland the play. Expect to hear back.
