This is the first time that I’m genuinely worried about taking a hammering, it’s got nothing to do with Chelsea being good, but we’ve got almost nothing left, ignoring players being tired the sheer number of injuries is totally out of hand.

Also not feeling too optimistic about this one because of the injuries, suspensions, and how taxing the last few games have been. And I'm really not looking forward to Chelsea fans acting like they've won the Champions League afterwards.

But in a way, that all shows how far our club's come. Imagine someone trying to explain to you 10 years ago that we'd be playing this fixture in the Premier League, that we - not Chelsea - would be coming into it off the back of a hard-fought win in Europe, and that the fixture would be a bigger deal to Chelsea than to us.
 


Yes I’m expecting little from this one, but I hope RDZ keeps the rotation to a minimum to give us the best chance. Of course with the huge number of more winnable games coming up shortly I would also not be surprised to see quite a strange line up

I am expecting a strange line up that will go on to surpass all expectations and send us into spasms of delight. At least I hope so, seeing as I have to set the alarm for 2.45 am on a working day... Come on Albion, get my week off to a great start!

I was thinking this earlier. Apart from today, we've got 2 very winnable games in the next 6 days. I'd take today as a 'free hit' and concentrate on them.
But what do I know?

I'm going up all billy no mates, had a ticket bought as a present for me ... in the home end.
Excepting the blue parrot, is there a preferred pub before the game?

These are a good side (occasionally).

Not expecting too much from this one.

Free hit, with plenty of excuses if it goes horribly wrong.

Looking forward to seeing Igor and JPvH's partnership again.
Think that will be pivotal in today's result.
