It should be a game to enjoy, bit of a party atmosphere.

End to end attacking football with chances created at both ends.

Forecast for this one, Wolves to sign off at home with a 4-3 home win.

Not sure my nerves could take a 4-3. Really want us to finish 7th and I’d take any sort of win. Presumably the ‘usual’ team to start with Bennett and the Donk rather than Saiss and MGW.

Fulham playing much better with the pressure off and a change of manager. Don’t think it will be easy but home advantage should see us through.

I’m going for 2-1 with Jiménez and Doherty.

Nuno dropping hints that Norris and Kilman may be involved before the end of the season, not what I want to hear when 7th place is still up for grabs

A must-win imo.

Home to a relegated side, it'd be a great marker to show that we CAN cope with these situations where we bear all the expectations.

Please play the proper team, no MGW, Traore, Cav to start. End the home season on a real high, not a damp squib.

It'd be a real marker to be "best of the rest", regardless of whether it brings European football.

The advantage that the top 6 have in terms of income puts them almost in another dimension, but to come out on top of the other 86 league clubs would be a big achievement, and arguably better than the 6th place in 1980 when finances played less of a role.

With Anfield up afterwards, this is our chance to hit the points that could do the job - Leicester willing.

A win is a must against a bottom six club. We need a good solid performance.
I want us to finish 7th, but it will be interesting if we do qualify for Europe to see how the squad is strengthened. We would be in trouble next year if our bottom six form was repeated and we were crap against the top six.

I am not interested in 7th, its nice to finish as high as possible, but we don't have the squad to cope with europe.
Recruitment is essential next season, but who and where is difficult, we are already committed to certain deals, so a top 10 finish next season is still progress and consolidation.
We have come so far in a short space of time.

With the chance to finish 7th and possibly gain a Europa League spot is something not to be sniffed at. Don't play Norris or Kilman please Nuno, stay solid and reliable and pick last weeks winning eleven.

Typical fare vs a bottom half team so far. Too slow and too passive, we've just let the half drift by, despite a few decent situations.

Jota's daft yellow for diving seems to have discouraged him, while Jimenez has failed to get involved enough.

We need someone to crack in that goal from a long range shot or take advantage of a setpiece. A surprising lack of intensity from kick-off I thought, given the circumstances.

I thought they would have been a bit more up for it given it`s our last home game of the season. Jota doesn`t need to cheat with his ability, very disappointing.

Get in! :D

Not a particularly memorable performance, and Fulham came close to the breakthrough a few times, but we did enough overall.

Great to not fall flat on our face with all the parades and masks.

Agreed, I thought he played and looked like Hazard today, he had enough chances to fill a swimming pool though.

Jota really becoming a top player now, exciting times.

Highest points total for newly promoted team since Ipswich in 2001.

Didn't Ipswich fall apart under Burley and have to see their key players?

I remember them having massive financial issues and having to sell players like Ambrose.
Even Bobby Robson bailed them out by taking Titus Bramble
