      This off their forum, most want a draw no suprprise there. If a result is to be had then they go for us which is exactly how I would have thought if one of them. If we win tonight and then Hudders win on Saturday they will be 2 points behind Newcastle, a game in hand and a far more straightforward run in

      Now, far from me to be absurdly prickly, but it is a bit strange that the poll puts Newcastle at the top and us at bottom. They are second in League and the away team. Is this an example of them being subliminally considered as the 'big' team?

      So true. I was really nervous about the two games, but after the win on Saturday I'm just looking forward to tonight as much as a kid on Christmas Eve - I got so little sleep last night! And with Huddersfield playing Newcastle on Saturday, it's not even a disaster if we end up losing tonight.

      Pleased this game is midweek sandwiched as part of a run of four games in 11 days. It helps avoid building it up too much and reduces the significance of what is after all just one of 46 games.

      We could lose tonight, and still be ahead of Toon on Saturday if Huddersfield beat them and we do business at Forest. For that reason, I am looking forward to it without nervousness. The win on Saturday took pressure off tonight.

      These 2 posts talk complete sense. I do get the feeling some posters are a little over confident about this one after Saturday. I see it being very tight and probably ending in a draw myself but there is a fair chance we COULD lose to the side with the best away record of course. Saturday was huge. I'll be glad when this one is out the way. If Derby continue their slump by the time we play them the last 5 home games look kind.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, thatís it. We have done it.

      Anyone else hear that fat drunken scouse oaf Micky Quinn on Talksport this morning? Apparently we are tailor made for Newcastle tonight and he is confident of a win for them. Apart from to announce who Newcastle's opponents are tonight they didn't even mention BHA. They even read it out as 'Newcastle v Brighton.' Normally doesn't bother me but pissed me off.
      I'd turned over by then because I knew what it would be like. To be honest I'm quite surprised they mentioned it in the first place.

      Too hard to predict but I'm edging towards a score draw.

      More likely they just don't like Billy Big B*ll*cks Newcastle much...away from the handful of relatively local teams that don't like us (like Tinpot), most others seem relatively well disposed towards little ole' BHA, so I suspect they'd much rather shunt Newcastle out of the autos than us.

      Interesting that Rafa had earmarked April as the most crucial month. I'd say for the Albion that the next couple of weeks are the most crucial. If and it's a reasonably sized IF, we win tonight, we then have three games that we would hope to secure maximum points. Within 10 days we could be sititng on 83 points with 9 games to go.

      The odds will be heavily against us achieving that, but given the speed with the next few fixtures are coming we have it within our grasp to really put the pressure on Newcastle and Huddersfield. Whilst I would not say no to a draw this evening I'd be quite happy if the team really went for it and really put out a statement.

      This is a very exciting opportunity indeed. The keys for us today will be Sidwell and Stephens disrupting Shelvey who seems to do most his devasting work from deep. Got the feeling Dunk and Duffy will be kept very busy too. Absolutely buzzing for this one, I think it will be a doozy with both teams trading punches for the knockout, anyone puting money on 0-0 good luck.

      I know what you are saying, and I feel quite nervous as well, but also very excited to see what happens. Obviously our heart's desire is a very specific set of results between now and Saturday 19:15, but they are best not uttered!
