Take a point now, avoid the potential heartache of defeat and keep them within touching distance for us to surge past as the season continues...

...or...

Go for the glorious win, risking the agonising pain of defeat and falling six points behind them again.

No. Win all day long. Although I had a dream the night before last and it was 1-1 at half time. I have no idea on the full time score.

Nah Bozza, go for the win and if that fails there's plenty of time left to catch them. You just have to believe.:albion2:

We should go all out for a win, however.....

I’m fairly sure we’ll draw because Palace will set-up for a point and park the bus big time. They had one shot in the away fixture with 34% possession, I very much doubt they’ll equal those stats as they’ll be even more of a closed shop.

It’ll be interesting how many attacking players finish the match for us as we try weave the ball through a packed Palace 6 yard box. We’ll need luck to score against effectively 10 defenders and a keeper, I’d be very surprised if we get that luck.

Yup. We'll score 0 or 1, same as always, and the defence is looking a bit tighter nowadays. But Zaha will still score 1. Them's the rules. So best case scenario it's got 1-1 written all over it :moo:

The caveat is that if we go 1-0 up, don’t concede and then go 2-0 up; I think we could get 5 or 6, especially if Zaha is out.

Nope, I’ll take my chances on unadulterated joy or a week of being pissed off. We need to give those guys a demoralising defeat.

Just not a totally dominant performance undone by shit finishing/inspired keeping and a jammy breakaway goal for Palace please

Sounds about right. Although, IF we manage to score early - I think we absolutely batter them.

On current form and especially without Zaha , I would say we are quite strong favourites. So why would we want to settle for a point . At home to Chelsea , maybe a point yes but Palace !
