    I want us to win but i wouldn't be devastated if Fulham won much rather they stayed up than Newcastle or Brighton tbh as they'll be **** next season whereas Newcastle could sack Bruce and become half decent and Brighton do have the talent to do well.

    Fancy us though, 3-1. Hope Roberts gets a goal, I think he is crap but it would sure shut me up if he bagged one or two.

    Roberts needs a goal and soon! I reckon as soon as Rodrigo is fully fit Roberts will be back on the bench......Unless he goes on a scoring run of course

    Think Bamford will score tonight - and I hear Mitrovic is likely to start his 100th game for them - we all know what that means too!

    He was in Shearer’s team of the week so let’s hope he lives up to the billing.

    Hope it is as good a game to watch as the Chelsea game. Wonder what sartorial delight Scotty P will be wearing.

    Took another slight knock in training - Geldhart in the squad in his place
