Sebastian Larsson wants to help Sunderland lift the FA Cup for the first time since their famous success against Leeds back in 1973.
The Black Cats take on local rivals Middlesbrough in the fourth round of the competition on Sunday afternoon with their sights set on a place in the last 16.
With heavyweight duo Manchester United and Manchester City having already been dumped out of the competition, the road to Wembley looks a little easier than in many seasons.
Larsson knows all about upsetting the odds and triumphing as an underdog, having been part of the Birmingham side who secured Carling Cup glory against Arsenal last season.
Now the Sweden midfielder believes Martin O'Neill's men should take inspiration from the performance of the Blues last term and is keen to be part of a new chapter of success in the history of the Wearsiders.
"People are still talking about that (1973) - so let's try to do something about it," he told the Daily Star Sunday.
"An FA Cup winner's medal to go with the one I won in the Carling Cup would be very nice - I wouldn't say no.
"Winning the Carling Cup was something no-one expected Birmingham to do, so it shows it's possible. It doesn't necessarily have to be one of the top-four clubs that wins the trophies."
Larsson's displays on the field have impressed Stadium of Light boss O'Neill since he took over in the dugout following the departure of Steve Bruce in December.
O'Neill said: "He's had a major impact for us. He works tirelessly and has a great delivery - he can come up trumps with free-kicks and they've been life-savers for us.
"He played a game when he could hardly stand up the day before. He played against Man City when most players, I don't care how courageous they are, wouldn't have played."
