They've lots of injuries (as do we).
The sense of excitement about this game is palpable, given the unstoppable stream of posts in this thread.
My own personal optimism has been rather taking a beating lately. So... 0-2. Unless Morgan's mojo is back on show. It's been long enough.
Let's Villa it.
I was optimistic for West Ham. I have seen the error of my ways.
A lack of Awoniyi is problematic.
Will we have learnt from our mistakes? Or will we make new ones?
Buggered if I know.
Don't think that would be the end of the world, but not sure it would satisfy the Twatter/X mob. Notwithstanding a lengthy injury list themselves, Brighton are a good side.
No Sangare in the squad, Danilo replaces him. Wood up front for Taiwo.
CHO is on the bench.
Wood in for Taiwo. No Sangare in the squad - replaced by Danilo. Murilo and Elanga fit to start.
Thanks as always for Partridge @tricky. Just on the train down ( delayed ) and listening to it. Bit of a buzz in the background but unsure where in the 'process ' that's happening. Anyone else hear it?
(It's fine now)
Early goal - check...
Welcome back Morgan
Nico appears to have taken my criticism of his haircut to heart, and has dyed it blond.
Their left back didn’t look very interested.
