Wasn't Gibbs missing on Tuesday through illness rather than injury?
That said I do agree play Gibbs on Saturday if fit and Townsend in the cup game

it was the Blues game last Friday that Gibbs missed through illness.

Watching the EFL highlights show last night I thought Millwall were abysmal, they lacked a lot but mostly heart. Neil Harris has said that it won't happen again so we may see a Millwall side fired up and trying to close us down, especially the back 3. I do think we will be too strong for them.

Like others have said I'd be tempted to drop Bartley for Adabarioyo and I'd start Barry with Field coming on for the last 30 mins if need be.

Our next 2 league games would be good chances of getting clean sheets as both Millwall and Preston are in poor runs of form.

I'm going back in time now.
I know you guys will help my memory.
I remember taking my son to his first Albion game.
We sat in the seats in the old stand before the new stand was built.
I thought it would be an exciting match for him,I think it was the second game of a two legged and we had lost the first one about 3/4 nil?
It was against I think Millwall?
Anyway their fans went crazy rioting etc.
My boy was terrified and hes never been to the Albion again.
He got into rugby instead.
Incidentally,he was a junior throstle and has fond memories of Cyrille and co at the club meetings he went to.
Memories eh?

This has all the makings of a bananaskin if we don't get properly up for it, or think we can waltz through them from minute one.  Tricky fixture list after the international break, need points on the board, disco football only if we get a couple of goals ahead.

Yeah I was only on about this the other day to my lad.
I seem to remember them jumping out of the seats. They were in the Rainbow, towards the Smethwick. Seem to remember they were tooled up and jumped on top of the executive boxes that used to be there.
Happy days eh?  :o

It was a Millwall "fan" that got knocked out. Despite their trouble making they came off second best that night on and off the pitch.

We've sold around 100 so far today (fractionally over). Pretty poor to say the least.

Think we could be looking near to 23,000 overall which isn't too bad to be honest.

On another note I sit right next to the millennium corner, got a feeling its going to be full of kids in their new Stone Island coat Saturday who cant wait to go to school Monday to tell their mates they were giving it loads to Millwall  ;D  ;D

Although if that's what it takes to get more bums on seats it wont bother me lol.

They'll be the ones at the away fixture breaking the land speed record to get back on the official coaches.

Chavs have moved up in the world from my younger days!

Millwall are unquestionably targeting Saturday's game for a bit of a show so be ready for an invasion of some propa nawty fellas.

My thoughts too. Millwall have struggled to muster 200 never mind 2,000 for some games at The Hawthorns over the last 30 years so for them to have sold that amount for Saturday tells it's own story. Plenty of their old heads and wannabe's will be out for this one.

They rarely take over 1000 away thesedays so it's going to be interesting.

What I will say is this: if they think they can bully us like they've done to clubs like Rotherham, they'll be in for a bit of a shock. Not condoning or glorifying any possible trouble, just saying.

That Rotherham game sprung to mind to me too, they had similar large numbers travelling that day too compared to their usual crap turnout. The Smethwick could well be a bit lively.

Given the fact that Darren Moore has chosen Gareth Barry in midfield to replace Brunty I'd go with him again for the moment as he's in possession of the shirt and has done nothing to warrant it been taken off him. I would definitely replace him with Sam Field after an hour or so though. Barry played most of the game on Tuesday and at his age I wouldn't be asking him to play ninety minutes four days later.

The only other change I'd make is Adarabioyo for Bartley particularly given it's Millwall we are up against. Steve Morison is a wily old fox and will pin himself against Bartley who will be pulling his shirt and grappling with him. Bartley is a penalty waiting to happen in this game.

Although I'm surprised at the amount Millwall have sold I think it's more to do with having not played us for a good while and we've just come down from the Premier League. This will be a big game to them.

All their fans travelling will be STH's or members and known to the club, it's not like back in the day. I doubt there'll be any bother.
