Weather forecast is very wet and windy again for this one. Should favour us as we've clearly proved we love these conditions   ;D

Very tricky selection issues, looked very tired at the end against Reading, but I can't think of many of that team we can afford to leave out, maybe Furlong in for OShea, maybe start Phillips or Grosicki

This'll be a cracking game, really looking forward to it.

It's on at a Sydney friendly time too, 11.30pm on a Saturday night so I can watch the live stream game.

I'm actually hoping that SJ, Livermore and Kanu are left out on Saturday - then we may not have any negative comments from Jacko and Fritz etc.  :P

Just joking, love you guys. :)

You can bet Slav will pick those players anyway.

I know you're joking Aussie but there's not a chance he will drop any of them. Only one of them should be considered for dropping in my view,

                 Johnstone
 
Furlong   Ajayi     Bartley   Townsend

             Livermore   Sawyers

   Phillips      Pereira      Grosicki

                   Austin

If we had a Centre mid who was capable of stepping in I would bring them in but I'm not sold on starting Harer or Barry in a crunhc game. Think we missed a trick by not bring a CM in who can keep JL and RS on their toes.

I don't think Robinson deserves to be dropped but we need to keep the team fresh somehow.

Would love Gibbs and Diangana to be available ASAP

 ;D Would like to see Robinson lead the line and put Grosiki on the left.
Maybe bring HRK or Austin on with 20 to go. Krov and Matheus running the midfield behind Robinson (who will score 2 this weekend he is due) :D :D :D

Would be a massive win but would take a draw, that way, if Fulham and Leeds both win, they will still be a win and a bit behind.
If we can bring our recent away form back to the Hawthorns though, I think we'll beat them.

                        Bond                      (Not going to happen but I just can't advocate Johnstone)
        O'Shea Bartley Ajayi Townsend
               Livermore Sawyers           (These 2 probably in most need of a rest but can't risk it at the minute)
             Grosicki Pereira Robinson     (Hard on Krov because he's played well but would love to see Grosicki and Robinson together)
                         HRK                      (Looked knackered on Wed. but Austin doesn't fit the system as well)

                                                     Johnstone  (Bond has not had much to do in cup matches might risk him against a team lower in te division)

             Furlong                  Ajayi                         Bartley                  O'Shea

                                                      Flip

              Pereira                                                                    Gosicki (60 Robinson)

                                               HRK (70 Austin)

                          A goalkeeper (some one anyone , even MoiraStewart )

  Furlong.        Semi.         Bartley.     Townsend                 ..........rest O’Shea

                     Harper.        Livermore                                   ..........rest sawyers
                                Krov. 
      Pereira.                                 Robinson
                           Kanuuuuuuu
                             

I’m quite confident that we win , I’d take a 1-0 but I actually think we are due to wallop someone and this would be a really good time .

Quite happy to see our (me and junior) 5th game and 5th 1-1 draw of the season.

We have nothing to prove - they need the points more than us.

No silly goals, we catch them on the break and do what we did to Leeds last year - we could win by a few - 3 or 4

i'm feeling good about this one, the lads will know this is a game to set us aside from the rest, we have the ability to tonk them and I think we will !!  WBA 4 - Forest 1, oh and Grabban sent off to top it all off nicely
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

I dunno, I can never forget us scoring first then losing 5-1 at home to Forest in about 1976 (edit: just looked it up it was 1979), so I would probably take a draw - I think it could be a high scoring game though, best of 5 or 6 goals.

I think it’ll be 1-1 or 2-2 and I’d take that.

Never been a fan of SJ, then I thought about it a bit more and realised I am watching  a relatively young goalkeeper learning on the job and actually trying to improve. OK he makes a few errors, and is not solid, but he has also played very well at times so I will do my best to whinge about him a bit less and be a bit more supportive. So come on Sam be big and be loud, boss your area and keep this lot at bay.
Hoping for a significant 2 or 3 goal victory against forest. Never liked this lot much

If you don't learn your job from a full season with an imperious John Terry in front of him you never will.


I don't see him learning on the job, I see him regressing rapidly.
