These are an ok side.

Decided I’m going to go tonight and thinking this is a game will win tonight to break the sequence.

3-0 to the Albion with a Connolly Brace (lump on)

At the end of my tether
3 points against the Wolfs please lads, no excuses.

There is every excuse for losing tonight, with our defence torn apart by the absence of Captain Dunk , Duffy and Webster…. Plus the unknown covid victims. Can a makeshift defence keep the Wolves from the door? We will have to see.
They are a strong side although perhaps not as good as they were under Nuno
Hard to predict a victory here but support anyway…..

I really can't be bothered with tonight. I can't make it and I fully understand anyone not wanting to go. With our injuries and covid list it should be postponed but it won't be because we're not Spurs.

Take the defeat and move on.

Relying on our superb history against Wolves to pull us through tonight.
0-0 lump on.

And yes I will be there - probably finding out it's cancelled as I board the near empty train to Falmer.

Do the Albion want is called off though? I have heard zero calls from them

Not going myself as I am desperate to minimise the chances of getting Covid mainly because I want Xmas with my family this year. I was about to sign up for BT Sport for a month but hesitated in case tonight is called off and I doubt that the United game (also on BT Sport) will be going ahead. I’ll leave it until near to kick off

I suspect we have a plan, and I suspect it's a plan that's about one positive LFT from disaster.

Free hit for the man Potter tonight though. Extract ANYTHING from tonight (yes, even another 0-0 or 1-1 draw) and it's probably a better result than drawing away to Liverpool.

Good point re Xmas. I expect the stadium will be about half full
