Tonight may well see the return of the magnificent Mikey Antonio.
Thankfully he hasn’t been as missed as many feared since doing a hammie against Manchester City back in October when he scored a wondrous goal third goal of the season and clear strike of the season qualifier.
That – along with Manu Lanzini’s breath-taking equaliser against Spuds -will go down as one of the best goals seen from a Hammer.
Realistically most of us expect Seb Haller to start the match but it is likely the top man will get some time against Aston Villa as we bid to reach fifth spot.
It is a very big night as we look forward to a thriller in what another site oddly called the claret and blue derby – umm, just about get that I suppose.
In the meantime let’s remember that astonishing goal which gave us a 1-1 draw against Citeh and remember too the part played by our two great Czechs Vladimir and Tomas.
