The 24th of January 2015 will live long in the memory for thousands of football fans as the day of FA Cup shocks after Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City were all dumped out of the famous domestic competition.

Middlesbrough, second in the Championship, made the short trip to the Etihad Stadium and knocked the reigning Premier League champions out at the fourth round stage thanks to a memorable 2-0 victory for Aitor Karanka's side.

Questions were asked to Manuel Pellegrini if the late return from a midweek trip to Abu Dhabi - home of the club’s owner - was to blame for the shock exit.

The suggestion was refuted by the Chilean coach who said the second tier side deserved credit for the surprise victory that came on Saturday afternoon.

One man however was faced with a dilemma at full time after a tweet was posted a few minutes into the game.

The tweet contained a threat to egg his own mother should his beloved Manchester City lose to Middlesbrough.

An hour and a half later realisation hit as Boro had caused an almighty upset as goals from on loan Chelsea player Patrick Bamford and Enrique ‘Kike’ Garcia Martinez.

@MikeeMCFC now had a choice to make, delete the tweet and act as if nothing had ever happened or go to the shop, by some eggs and, well, throw them at her. 

He chose the latter and has now become an internet sensation with his video receiving thousands of retweets and favourites.

Within hours of posting the video @MikeeMCFC was trending in major cities across the UK. His video had reached Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds and Liverpool.

There are no easy games in football, especially in the FA Cup. A lesson @MikeeMCFC has learnt.
