Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!

We've all heard of tough hacks, journalists with thicker skins than Rhino (AKA Millwall legend Keith Stevens), but few are up for taking Sir Alex Ferguson! According to Rafa Benitez, the Chelsea boss, whose simmering feud with his Manchester United counterpart continues.
When questioned after their 2-2 draw in the FA Cup as to why they'd not shaken hands before or after the game, Rafa said: 'Ask him! If you're brave enough, ask him.'
Meanwhile, the draw for the semis filled the minnows with joy. Blackburn expect to use home advantage to set up a tie against their north-west rivals Wigan, who will be led out at Wembley by their chairman Dave Whelan if that comes to pass. Rovers have to negotiate Millwall first, who failed to capitalise on their dominance in Sunday's quarter-final.
If Millwall can beat Blackburn away and Wigan at Wembley, they could set up a repeat of the 2004 final against Manchester United, who have 'only' Chelsea away and potentially Manchester City at Wembley to worry about. Mmm! Perhaps a repeat is unlikely then. It'll be interesting to know what odds the bookies are giving on that unlikely event recurring!
