Although not terminal, anything less than a win tomorrow further poisons the atmosphere around the club.

A win and getting a new striker in gives the place the lift it needs. It could also start to drag Brighton into the relegation battle (a lot of newly promoted clubs have a positive start then it all falls apart second half of the season when teams suss them out).

A draw/loss and wins for Stoke/Swans/Southampton/Wet Spam and we are in real danger of being cut adrift. So yeah, huge game!

This. I remember that game like it was yesterday. Amalfitano crossed to the moody cunt for a tap in in the 10th minute I thing?, and the crowd carried the team through the rest of the game. Was so damn tense.

It was indeed MA's assist - after a good break from Sess.  

We were on the sauce in Dusseldorf that weekend and back in the centre after watching Fortuna.  Knew we were 1-0 up early on but just couldn't watch Soccer Saturday.  Dreading every time there was a goal call

Vydra played up front on his own and Amilfitano got the goal. We were holding on at the end. And we were singing about Ridgewell going to Brazil for a good 20 minutes.

How right we were.

Really feel that tomorrow is similar. Obviously not the same derby feeling but having looked at Brighton's fixtures and considering they are poor away from home - it's equally massive for them - if they can't turn it around away from home I think they are going to struggle to find wins as most of their home games are against the big boys now. 

If we can't win tomorrow then that is it baring a miracle a kin to the great escape.

That was a huge 6 pointer - and cost them in the end after our gutless surrender at Sunderland at the back end of that season.  They had won at our gaff of course

Vydra was a handy sub that year - and got a few point saving goals.  Fringe PL and top Champo standard

Absolutely. Game saved us and relegated them. 

Vydra may be playing Prem footy with Derby next season.

Only the top three have beaten us at home this season.

Brighton, Southampton, Huddersfield, Leicester, Burnley, Swansea - all winnable.

Give everything tomorrow. Get a win. Make a start.

This.

We need to draw a fuggin line in the sand and start the fight for survival before it's too late. Can't even draw tomorrow imo. Not in terms of points but in terms of morale ebbing away from players and supporters.

The last one.
We have to win tomorrow, if we cannot raise our game, given the shite we are in, against a mediocre side at home, we have little chance of winning another game this season.
Lose tomorrow and little hope remains.
