Can't see us getting anything from this tbh. Cheater Kane to con the ref into a free kick which he gets the winner in a 2-1 thriller.

I really do hope I'm wrong tho and it's another 3-0 to the boys in hyper.

If we play as good as vs The Arse, it'll be a good game and we've got our tails up. Nothing to lose boys, it's a free hitter, go for it.

If the midfield looks like Mwepu, McAllister, Bissouma and Caicedo then expect more of the same from last week but Spurs are on a tremendous run so sadly think this one is likely to be 2-1 to them.

Whatever the result make sure you all sing your hearts out for the team please. Maybe they’ll do a hyper special and surprise us.

Would love to see the Albion score some more of those filthy goals we saw last week, it’s just like watching Brazil.

A win would be MASSIVE

HUGE game

Cucu / Mwepu / Caicedo / Tross all just need to KEEP IT LOOSE #staysilky

While everyone (clearly not everyone) was dismissing these 3 games as write offs and us ending up in a full on relegation battle, I thought we'd get something.

Now sure I thought we'd eek out a point and possibly even two, so I wasn't exactly confident.
But with that in mind I see no reason to move away from my original thinking and hope we'll eek out a point today.


High praise indeed.
 
Another great away performance 1-2. A real statement of intent that we intend to get that top 10 finish. A glorious day in the Sunshine and 3 points to go with it. What a Saturday.

Sadly I suspect we'll see the usual two embarrassing posters on here at FT regardless of the result, trying to get into arguments on a Saturday.

Off out to meet up and get the rattler to The Smoke soon,

Total free hit, innit? All I'm hoping for is that I see Caciedo and Mwepu and that we've learned the lessons from the last two games with them.

Of course, lessons learned could be "don't play Caciedo and Mwepu this week".

We'll see what happens when the starting shirts are handed out by the Potter Bingo machine at 11.30.

Kane manages to get the ref in his pocket every time we play them, I can pretty well guarantee me going into a rant at the tv as he cons him again today. The cheating ****

Looking forward to seeing how Potter sets us up today, hopefully something very left field which will of course result in rants on here when the teams are announced :lolol:

Bloody Craig Pawson.

I’ve still not forgiven him.

The only saving grace was that it produced one of the best atmospheres since the Amex opened. I still haven’t forgiven CMS for his miss as Smug got one over against us with a massive helping hand from the ref
