    A week on from the incredible victory at Selhurst Park, the attention turned to East London, and a huge opportunity for more history. Championship Millwall standing between the Albion and a first FA Cup semi-final since 1983 - you have to say, a hugely winnable tie. Saturdayís action saw Palace knocked out at Watford (snigger), City scraping past Swansea, and Wolves progress into the last four after beating Manchester United. One spot remaining...could the Seagulls join them?

    Into the Lion's Den, as strong a team as Chris could have picked. Excitement reaching fever pitch, letís do it boys. Letís get to Wembley.

    An absolutely vital 3 points last time out, safety deliciously close. Home wins over the struggling Cardiff and Southampton, and a couple of away draws for good measure ought to do it. Where better to start?

Not when I woke up and crawled out of bed, my stomach tormented with nerves, not even a week prior after the conclusion of our vital home win over Huddersfield.

    Following Albionís FA Cup fifth-round victory over Frank Lampardís Derby County, the big news heading into the midweek fixture away at Leicester was the rapid appointment of Brendan Rodgers as the new Foxes boss, after ďparting companyĒ with Claude Puel on Sunday. Couldnít even afford us a few more days of turmoil, could you Leicester? Not to mention affording Palace a 1-4 away victory in Puelís final game in charge. An interesting appointment nonetheless, with some Celtic fans understandably frustrated at his sudden departure.

    Back in December when the Premier Leagueís TV dates were confirmed, a few Albion fans (including myself) scoffed at the inclusion of Burnley at home. Following the two enthralling encounters of last season, both ending 0-0, it seemed odd that anyone would want to pay actual money to televise the fixture. More pertinently, it didnít seem relevant - after amassing an impressive points tally as Christmas approached, many of the BHAFC faithful were looking up the table rather than down.

    But this, of course, is the Albion weíre talking about. And where the Albion are concerned, nothing is ever straightforward.
