We were pretty good 2 weeks ago at Coventry, we played some good football but somehow got beat.

I sort of enjoyed the 6-1 defeat at top flight Ipswich in 85 too when we had nearly 6,000 travelling fans on a cold Tuesday night in the League Cup, don't remember the football much that night but I felt entertained.

Cup defeats are different to league defeats because the most enjoyable defeats were against big teams. I missed leeds (unfortunately) but listened to it, stoke away was a cracking night which ended in defeat and that fulham away was fantastic- all fantastic turn out by town fans trying to upset a prem team

I've only been reasonably happy/entertained at one defeat and that was at molineux a couple of years back.We played some superb football that day.

We were incredible that day, Kasim played out of this world

 Hmmm We've only ever lost 1 cup game to Stoke in 1949.  That of course was the FA cup, we've always come out on top in LC encounters.

A magical night.

Entertainment came mainly from ourselves.

Imagine if we HAD won!

  for some reason that (having checked) 3-4 win felt like a defeat. i remember the stoke big guns coming on as subs and turning the match around. lets go with Fulham instead!

Was going to add Forest away 7-1 defeat but Batch beat me to it. So instead I'll go with another League Cup defeat - going out to a Paul Robinson goal in the last couple of minutes against Leeds away, we were superb, thoroughly entertained and very proud of the team.

That optimism went after about 5 mins though when Key conceded on his debut! great night out, almost exactly the same amount of away fans as home fans.

I didn't go to Lids away but on the radio it sounded superb...right up till that fucking goal by the keeper Robinson.

[pedant] we went out on penalties, not Robinsons goal [/pedant].

Fair point, but cup games are a different kettle of fish in that you're expected to lose against a team from a higher league and in that sense you don't really have any expectation.

But the original point was that sport is all about winning, and stuff the entertainment. And I argue that it isn't, it's not all about the result, there needs to also be a decent contest and some entertainment as well as a good result. It's a combination, not an either/or

The Leeds game was one of my favourite town games.  1998 WC loss against Argentina is my favourite England game.

Lost both games but fantastic performances
