Well they are currently engaged in a 'thrilling' match against Palace from what I can gather.

Should have won it by all accounts. This will be another tough ask, but we simply have to go for broke in this one now. At least I'd like to see us go down fighting with some semblance of pride intact.

I don't think it will make one iota of difference to our ultimate fate but we just have to go gung-ho in this game.
For all the green shoots in the last couple, we haven't won and have only scored once. I'd rather lose this 4-3 than draw 0-0.

Yes. No half way house now. We need to get on with it, and win.

If we're going with cliches it's time to turn up the heat and melt plastic Albion. There's only so many times you can go to the well, cast your bucket and come up with nothing. A rolling stone gathers no moss but it's more than a stitch in time for us to pick up three points. Into these Albion, forwards and COYB.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

I like the look of that team. AMN looked better second half against Burnley out on the wing

Snodgrass for Phillips, O'Shea for Ajayi would be my only changes unless Gibbs is fit.

Yeah thats the team i'd be going for. Diangana will be able to concentrate more on attacking with OKAY and CG putting the leg work in and offering more protection.

I agree with this to be honest - though Townsend would stay in my side.

This could be an interesting one. A dominant side who struggle for goals vs the worst defence in the league. We have more steel now with Yokuslu and Brighton struggled vs a Palace side who might be quite similar to us.

Am I bring too optimistic in thinking Diagne and Pereira get goals in a Baggies win?

Bissouma is coveted by several EPL clubs
Dunk and White are decent backs
Trossard is dangerous on his day
March crosses are dangerous, Gross has scored from the edge of the area against us.
Interesting to se how we get on against this Potter-Ashworth team in the process of construction.

I would pick:-

            Johnstone
Furlong OShea Bartley Townsend
                Yokuslu
 AMN Pereira  Gallagher Robinson
                 Daigne

Enables either MP or Robinson the chance to play support to Mbaye.  I've a hunch that Robinson is more effective converting knockdowns than Pereira who is the best at carrying the ball from midfield.

How many matches is Semi suspended for?

Surely not 3 for a handball.

I would go similar but may have Diangana on the right of midfield and replace Furlong with Maitland Niles.

I expect team selection will be the same but with O'Shea in for Ajayi and Snodgrass in place of Phillips if fit. I'd like Maitland-Niles to be on the fight of the central three to exploit the space that Pereira leaves when drifts inside as well as covering him defensively.

Looks like Snodgrass will miss out due to injury. I guess Matt Phillips will remain in the side.

Me too. Just hope Allardyce goes for this and plays Diangana, Grant or Robinson.
It really is a must win game for me, not in terms of survival, as I believe that has already gone, but in terms of confidence and building on the last two performances. We need to prove we know how to win!

Like playing with 10 men when Phillips plays offers nothing.
