    Hadn't even realised VLP was back from Brighton.

    4-1-4-1? McDonald in front of the defence with Coady and Edwards in the middle?
    This is our love, and it knows no division.

    Yes, that's how it has been the past three games.

    Interested to see what Zyro & Siggy can do. Disappointed Byrne still doesn't start and unfortunately with Wallace shipped out it looks like Edwards will still play every game.

    Clarification on Benik after the game. Not sure it's needed to be honest!

    Confirmation on his future after the game.

    Would guess he is off for a medical at Bournemouth. He travelled down with the squad to London on Friday, so is there. Doubt we would take him along for a day out. So guess the bid and acceptance of, came late in the day yesterday.

    Disappointed VLP is in over Byrne but at least it's his chance to impress. Mainly I'm happy Siggy is starting that lone striker role in this system should suit him more than Afobe. Let's hope for a no good performance and a win to lift the spirits!

    What's the verdict on Byrne then?

    Can't get a start in an FA Cup game where Ken clearly has no intention of playing our strongest team. Surely he hasn't been given a fair chance?

    Come on Gents, let's look on the positive side.

    2 - 1 Wolves.

    Not powerful enough.

    He hasn't got the power.

    Sucks to be him, that's for sure.

    I'm intrigued by Zyro, Siggy & Graham as a three pronged attack moving forward. Shame we've still got to put up with Edwards, though.

    A front 4 of Graham, Clough, Zyro and Bjorn would be fucking sexy.

    Maybe he`s hoping that VLP will carry on his recent "run of form" into this game. Don`t hold your breath.

    He was as bang average for Brighton as he was for us.

    Realistic I think. West Ham are a bloody good side under Bilic, and are at home. We have kept the goals out through a mix of plenty of luck and abhorrent football. I don't fancy those two to combine today and I think we are on the path to a sound hiding.

    Complete bollocks that Byrne isn't starting in this. When you're completely outclassed pace is the one thing which could make a difference.

    It's not even about pace for me - van la Parra has that too - but Byrne is actually quite a thoughtful player. He seems to have an idea of what he is going to do before he gets it whereas players like Henry and van la Parra are not very clever at all.

    Good point, I just genuinely don't understand why KJ doesn't ever want to give his signings a chance, unless they are all nobs?

    In the cup, being realistic is not necessarily the right way to see things. Over the years there have been endless cases of teams being knocked out by inferior opposition. That will happen somewhere this weekend.
