    Big game this our second semi final in four years whilst it's Wolves first in over twenty.

    Wolves are a different side to when we turned them over at their place with them switching to a more solid 3-5-2 with Jiminez and Jota up top. The switch has led them to be more exposed on the flanks which should work in our favour and I'm sure Javi has a trick or two up his sleeve. Wolves tend to struggle against teams that sit deep and restrict space.

    I'd start with the same team that started on Tuesday with Pereyra raring to go after his wife going into labour during the match at Fulham. Gray to come on later and run at a stretched defence.

    Both teams to score but god knows what it will be.

    Qu* Sera Sera.....

    I had a dream last night. Pereyra lashed home a volley early on in the first half and lifted up his shirt to reveal a tshirt saying some sentimental spanish bollox about his new kid.

    Second half gomes flaps at a cross for their equaliser. Around 80 mins he fluffs a back pass to their forward, who slots home. We pile forward for an equaliser and they race forward on the counter and score a third in injury time (foster would have saved it).

    Out of the cup, and it's all down to the gurning twonk for picking gomes.

    I had the same dream but I guess you'd walked out before Mariappa chested one back to Gomes in the 93rd minute for the 4th ? You may have heard the cheers from the majority wolfs fans as you boarded the tube ?

    It's only fair!
    Wolves are on their way back and are a massive club after all.
    We're lucky to be playing them and shouldn't forget that.
    We know our place.

    We have no right to beat them and we shouldn't even try.

    It's a disgrace that a club of their stature aren't allowed to wear their home kit.

    For the sake of football, I hope this banner doesn't need to come out again:

    Hopefully Javi picks Foster but I'm not so sure he will

    Javi has gained a great deal of credibility since he joined us, and rightly so in my opinion.
    He will lose the lot if he doesn't play Foster.

    Yep. If foster doesn't play gracia will be filed alongside bassett as the most destructive manager in the history of our great club.

    Easy win this, will be a bit of an anticlimax as we stroll to victory. Let's hope Brighton can pull off a miracle on Saturday, if so, we've won the cup and we're going to Europe!

    Foster to start and then the normal line up.

    My best pal is a Brighton fan and has scored me one of the £30 tickets in the Gods for their game - I’m going chiefly in the name of the ****-up to be quite honest.

    What harm can be done by two afternoon’s in the Green Man?

    Will do some scouting of both potential oppositions. Tempted to just play a drinking game based around every time City score mind you.

    Surely Pereyra has to score now so he can do that bloody annoying rocking baby celebration.

    It’s got the whole squad doing that bloody Baby Shark thing written all over it. And Wolves winning 2-1.

    Drop him. Big Ken Sema will slide on his knees WHEN he scores. Acceptable.

    He won't be able to afford a funeral if he's done all the drinking at Wembley prices.

    Oh I don't know!
    I had an uncle who worked in Fleet Street and used to direct everyone via pubs' "Left at the Rose and Crown,straight on,past The Cricketers.."
    He had a fine try at death by alcohol.
    Mind you,he chased my Dad around their garden with an axe because he was mimicking Uncle Jack's stutter.
    Dad said if Jack had caught him, he would have killed him!
    Made Arnhem seem like a breeze to Dad!

    We only ever win at Wembley against teams with 'Wanderers' in their name, so we've got no chance against Wolverhampton Wan.... Hang on a minute.... COYH!!!!

    True he wasn't great but think Gracia won't change the defence now .

    I think this one is going to be very tight. I would not be surprised if it goes to penalties - but I do think the Hornets will edge it.
    Lawro's prediction: 1-1 - Wolves to win on penalties

    Lawro gone for an error filled and cotradictory prediction of course. Wolves much more consistent. By 1 point in the league. Hornets to win on penalties. And by Hornets he means Wolves.

    Covering his bases, tbf.

    In any event more plausible than the Deeney hattrick predicted by Scott Mills.

    BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson said: "Stopping City is going to be a big problem for Brighton. The key is to deny them space but it will feel like the Wembley pitch is huge.

    Classic!
