    Match of the Day


    2 hrs ·

    Back in the 80's, knocking Coventry City FC out of The FA Cup was classed as a giant-killing....

    They just took the piss out of our fall from grace.

    Time to get angry
    :mad:

    The fans hurt too, because the truth is, it's always been out of our hands. No need to highlight it and rub it in though is it..

    Knocking out a club near the bottom of division 3 isn't a giant killing. But we were the 4th longest serving club in the top flight.

    Been angry, frustrated, pissed off, dejected and now resigned to our fate. It is the truth.

    Have you never taken the piss out of other clubs in their bad times? Just another reality check.

    Perhaps showing some respect towards the fans?

    Just to quote a few comments from their status:

    Can't see what the problem is.

    We now have a whole new generation probably watching MOTD. To many Coventry City have been a lower league club for most of their existence. A non-league team beating a League 1 team simply doesn't hold the same notoriety as beating a Premier League club (or whatever it was back then).

    People now see us a lowly League 1 club.

    We're talking nearly 30 years ago. Can't see what the problem is.

    To be actually offended by a mildly wry comment on a Facebook page, you'd need skin so thin you're almost transparent. Jesus.

    Maybe (I can't believe I'm going to say this) people are more sensible and less prone to massive overreactions here.

    If you ever want to see someone fly off the handle about something, load up a social media site and wait five seconds.

    We're not a big club.... and that's not about whether or not we are in Prem, Champ or League 1. It' not about if we have potential, a 'sleeping giant' or whatever.

    As far as BBC and Sky are concerned - there are only 4/5 big clubs in this country... everyone else is just filler.

    You only have to look at the FL shows on both to see how much they don't care about life outside the Premiership. Even if you look at the distribution of PL games shown on BT Sport and Sky to see how big clubs are favoured.

    It is a reality check. There is a core problem at the heart of many of our fans { including me } and that is those 34 unbroken years at the top level ! Everything since 2001 has been a huge comedown, a gradual slide into obscurity and near oblivion. In 13 years now we've had the ........The closure of HR, the Opening of the Ricoh, A handful of decent home games and the trips to Arsenal and Spurs, the big followings at MK and a few other places, the Chelsea game and the win at Man Utd in the league Cup. I feel for the younger { Under 30 } fans who haven't had a lot to cheer in that period and fair play for them sticking with the City.
    The last 3 years have been the worst though....gut wrenching, embarrassing, divisive, demoralising and downright depressing !

    We have never been a big club though , a big club is man utd , bayern munich , juventus , liverpool etc etc .
    coventry fall well into the medium sized category along with many other clubs that assume they are "big" when on the grand scale they are simply not

    No one has a divine right to be at the top table... it's has to be earned.

    Unfortunately for us... we fell out of the PL at the worst possible time. The deck is stacked against us and many others like us that were PL founding members and are now floating between 2nd and 3rd tier.

    If Worcester beat us, it's a giant killing, no matter how many leagues close/apart we are.

    Really can't see what the problem is here? It was an embarrassing result, but hey, that's football. We had our glory in 1987.

    Yes, for a team like Worcester, it will be. Giant killings are judged on the differance of leagues and positions of the clubs involved. Therefore, yes, it will be a giant killing for them. Not cus we're a big club, but cus they're a tiny club and we're in a remotely respectable league

    Can't see the problem with the comment made by the BBC because sadly the fact is it's true and no hiding from it.
