Will be a sell out in the home areas, always is on Boxing Day. Wigan will probaly bring a lot more then they normally would aswell

Perhaps they'll bring two minibus loads rather than the usual one? Hopefully more of the Smethwick will be opened up to home supporters.

The 26,513 attendance, is that our biggest gate for years. Can’t remeber it being that full since the capacity was dropped down to 26,500

What is our capacity cause if the away fans were 120 down then, that means the capacity is higher then the 26,500

Biggest since 2015 (26,663 v Liverpool).

Baffled by some of comments on here. Thought we were the better side for the first 35 minutes but lost control at the end of the half. We played well in the second too until the wonder goal knocked the stuffing out of us. The lads looked like they were running on adrenaline and just seemed shattered. Yes, the Vile - clearly a good side who will be right up there come May - should have put us away afterwards and we (FOR ONCE) got lucky against them at the end but  we were worth the point. Some positive signs.

On an aside, I thoroughly enjoyed our modified version of the Liquidator and it was nice to hear the return of the Albion roar, albeit sporadically. As always, our support was just different class to the Vilers. Cringeworthy.

COYB. Let's get behind the lads tonight. Whoever wants it more will win.

Get the worst out of the way first:

1) DV2 1975, (A) L 1-3: Not long before Don Howe was sacked. 1-0 up at half time but collapsed in the second half. Dogs started screaming throughout the land as the Vilers' delighted squeals went into ultrasonic. They got promoted at the end of the season.
2) DV1 1981, (A) L 0-1: The week we effectively gifted them the title by beating Ipswich and then losing to them. Outplayed them before Brendon Batson's disastrous back pass handed them victory on a platter. The away end was dangerously overcrowded too.
3) League Cup R4, (H) L 1-2: One of the worst refereeing performances I've ever witnessed. Think we ended up with 9 men. Robbed.
3) FA Cup R4 1998, (A)L 0-4: The gulf between the clubs was so huge that the chants of 'we'll never play you again' seemed pretty reasonable. High pitched renditions of Vera Lynn. Stan Collymore.
4) FA Cup QF 2015, (A) L 0-2: Possibly the worst week I've experienced as an Albion fan. Bottled it.

And now for some better ones:
1) League Cup R5 1965, (H) W 3-1: One of the first games I can remember and certainly the first win over the Villa. Big crowd, fantastic atmosphere and of course we went on to win the trophy.
2) League Cup R2 1966, (H) W 6-1: Should have been about 12. I kid you not.
3) League Cup R2 1970, (A) W 2-1: Albion all over the Holte End. Thoroughly took the piss. Great night.
4) DV2 1973, (H) W 2-0: Boxing Day special. Wonderful atmosphere and God knows how many fans were squeezed in.
5) DV2 1974, (A) W 3-1: Great game in an otherwise deeply disappointing season as we did the double over them. Only time we've done so in my life thus far.  :o
6) League Cup R5 1982, (A) W 1-0: Made up somewhat for the calamity the season before. One of the best goal celebrations I've ever been involved in, as attested by the bruises the next morning.
7) DV1 1984, (H) W 3-1: Best last five minutes ever?
8) Premier League 2005, (A) D 1-1: Robbo!
9) Premier League 2011, (H) W 2-1: About bloody time.

Comedy orange

Sadly I still think they've got more than enough to survive comfortably but the current meltdown is fun to observe. I went to the Huddersfield game last week with my best friend, a big Dingle fan, and they were dismal. I know we've had some poor ones ourselves in recent times but I was shocked at just how anaemically surly the atmosphere was. They're not the happiest chappies at present.  ;D

And a certain Mr Borja Valero was seen sporting some lesser stripes at Wembley.

Good performance, decent performance, poor performance yet we've got 9 points. Fantastic couple of weeks. Bring on the Vilers.

Pleased with the three points but the last few minutes really haven't done the ticker much good. Typical Albion...

Only in a friendly in the US as far as I know sometime in the 90's

I seem to remember we got thrashed. 1-6 maybe? Still, we're unbeaten against them at home, at the Berabeu and in European competition  ;)

Decent first half hour then we tailed off a bit. Nevertheless, a huge improvement on the recent dross. Crowd excellent initially but dropped off too. Work those lungs please lads (and lasses).

Not the result you want to discover after a 17 hour day at work  >:(  To be honest we were fairly fortunate to scrape past Luton and Mansfield and the powers that be clearly have no interest in the competition. Why the hell doesn't he give Field a go in the middle and where was Burke?

Out of interest, did Roy get a good reception?

We've pretty much always had it good against the Blues but this is going to be a tough game. Truth be told, I'd take a point. Boing Boing.

Oh and any Baggies in the home end should behave themselves, or else they'll quickly find this derby is not so 'friendly' after all.

If, for whatever reason, Brunt and Livermore are undroppable in Moore's eyes, I think he should consider benching Rodriguez, playing Gayle up top with Barnes behind him and adding an extra pair of legs in central midfield in the shape of either Harper or Field.
