Pardew: 'We Are UNderdogs'

Pardew: 'We Are UNderdogs'

West Ham boss Alan Pardew is using a novel way of approaching the FA Cup semi-final ... saying Middlesbrough look odds-on to win!

Pardew insists Boro are favourites following a defeat that left him bitterly disappointed.

Pardew: 'You have to say that looking at their squad and the players they left out that they are very much the favourites.

'Although we didn't have our full-strength team out, we know we cannot go into Sunday's game as anything other than underdogs.

'We have got it all to do if we are going to win, but we know we can do it because we proved it this season with some big wins.'

I don't think the league match will have any effect on the cup - it could work to either side's advantage.

In situations like that, i don't think the league result has any affect whatsoever on the cup game either.
