    It is weird in the extreme, I've even wanted Spurs to win the odd game and I loathe them, same goes for Chelsea and Utd. Wanting City to win is less troubling as they are so good to watch.

      Trouble is they keep letting us down and losing to our bottom half of the table rivals. It just makes me hate them more.

      Anyone else find it an odd, and slightly uncomfortable feeling?

      Born in '86 so this is the first time seeing Albion in the top flight for me, therefore the first time I have ever wanted the top 6-8 to basically smash everyone except us.

      However, I still have to admit to mixed feelings when watching say, Chelsea v West Brom the other evening. There's still a part of me that can't help but want to see the little guy beat the big guy.
      Hopefully we'll all be mightily cheering on the overdogs at the Amex on Saturday. Coventry have their own big fish to fry away from the FA Cup.

      I realised this odd feeling early on in the season...I think it was when Burnley scored their third at Chelsea
      This. Not right. Not proper.

      I'd have rejoiced at Huddersfield beating Man Utd early on but instead I felt disgusted. I don't like it.

      This. Like attempting to maintain an erection whilst focusing on a picture of Ann Widdecombe. It's just not natural.
      I'm sure Wayne Rooney could give you some tips.

      Although the results wasn't what we wanted I found Chelsea being taken apart by Watford the other week brilliant.

      With the amount of teams below I don't see Watford as realistic relegation candidates so I did enjoy that one, fantastic counter attacking football at the end.

      I thought the thread title was in reference to this weekends FA Cup exploits.
      Although in fairness now I think about it the Albion have been overdogs in the 2 previous rounds, so it can't be an issue now!
      Another reason to love the FA cup - it is now the one safe place where we can heartily and genuinely cheer on the underdog, and purge those feelings of guilt and self-disgust. Not only is there the joyful anticipation of an overdog being humiliated by a “lesser” team, but progression of said “lesser” team can only be advantageous to us.

      (NB - for those of a slow-witted or perpetually outraged persuasion, please note the inverted commas around “lesser”.)

      I worked in Coventry for 35 years and for most of that time they were the big team - mostly in the top flight and we were usually anywhere but. Even when we made it in 1979, it seemed weird playing at the same level as City, and, of course it didn't last. How times have changed now !

      I believe this hasn’t happened since we beat Man City in the cup

      I agree about them not being realistic relegation candidates, however with how tight it is a draw would have left Watford level on points with us, had they lost to Chelsea we'd be above them right now. Such fine margins at the moment.
