Will be a massive three points tonight. It's one of those games where you feel we just need to get the first goal and from there we'll see the game out comfortably. Hopefully it will come early.

Just so happy we're in the new stadium. I know our record there wasn't bad or anything but I'd be shitting myself a bit if we were playing these home games at Wembley to be honest.

Seems Poch did his presser for this game on Saturday, and the club hasn't posted an injury update so no idea if Lamela is ready. Seems Sissoko is out for a couple of weeks and Winks is struggling, I imagine he'd be saved for Ajax regardless.

I want us to go as full strength and attacking as possible tonight. This is a vital game, and we need to capitalise on the others slipping up at the weekend. COYS

Not so worried so much about tonight but Saturday could be the problem as I have already received messages from hammer fan's looking forward to being the first team to beat us there, this is their be and end all game especially as it comes a few days before Ajax.

You can envision it potentially being tricky but I feel times where we've struggled against West Ham have been because it has at least seemed like we hadn't matched their fight. I think I've seen more people say they're worried about this game than the home game against City in the CL!

It's as if it's a strange mental thing with West ham, I think people would be more confident if this was a rivalry that was seemingly as important to us as it is to them. But it shouldn't be the case, hopefully it's us who give them a really rough time.

Set pieces with Murray, Dunk and Duffy in the box will be a bit angsty. Other than that, it'll be a case of getting that first goal.

Wonder if we'll start Llorente to give us a bit of presence in the box, it's bound to be a game with a lot of crosses.

We'll be fine.

Random fact; I read on the BBC website that we've not lost a Premier League home game on a Tuesday since August 2007.

No I agree I don't see much rivalry with them it is as you say mainly on their side but they will up their game when they play us so if we are near or at our best we win.

If we can get, at least, a two goal lead at half time, I think Brighton will go all out defensive just to stop their GD from getting any worse.

The main concern for me is the fact we don’t have a full squad to choose from. It makes it slightly more tricky for us, but will not be an excuse.

Despite the narrow loss on Saturday, the boys should be feeling confident and extremely motivated. We have just 4 league games remaining, plus potentially 3 huge European nights. Everyone will be desperate to impress.

I don’t think Brighton will be targeting this match for very much. They have easier opportunities for points upcoming.

Overall, I am supremely confident in our boys to get the 3 points, especially with the massive support they will have behind them.

Potential to be an absolutely horrible game. Really need to out of the gates straight away as Hughton has them "set up well" and that is unlikely to change much during the match.

First game at the new place for me too. I will be persistently standing and persistently singing myself hoarse too. Can not wait.

Exactly this. Unless they get an utter pasting from their remaining games, they may well stay up, even if it's on GD. They do have us, Newcastle, Arsenal away and City at Home though. That's a hell of a tough run for them. I wouldn't be confident of them getting a point from any of those games.

Parking the bus and getting a point or two out of their remaining 4 games is probably their best hope of staying up. Be prepared for 10 men behind the ball and a shit load of time wasting tonight

Better win this fecker. After the Man City fiasco and petticoat control declaring we're eating out with family...I've pulled rank.

Feck Emmerdale, and any other crap she wishes to watch. I've politely informed her that dinner will be taken by myself, in the comfort of a comfy chair, positioned directly in front of the main television, a television that will be showing Spurs v Brighton.
