    I think he will mix things up totally, so many Villa players carrying knocks and needing rest, I think we will see a completely different team, with most of the 1st team getting some time off.

    Interesting team selection Adam; could work and I agree Hutton, Vlaar and Senderos looked good together with Sisoko (sp?) who I believe is fit so why not play that original back four? You’re also right about Lowton but wonder if he has an attitude problem?

    TS may put Guzan back for this game although I think he’ll stick with Given for the Final. We might also see another of academy players on the bench.

    See BBC is going to cover the FInal for the whole day – just like the good old days!

    Interesting but I’d like to see some of the younger players blooded and rest some of the senior players, especially those we don’t want to see getting injured before the cup final.

    I know we’d all like to win the last game of the season but personally I’d sooner win the cup.

        Well, although it’s not very ‘sporting’ – here’s hoping that Sunderland can at least inflict some ‘damage’ on Wenger’s very injury-prone players tonight…!

    I really dont care about the result in this game. We need as many fit players as possible for the Final.

    When Delph goes up to lift the FA Cup,
    We’ll be there

    Come on you Wembley Wizards…..we fear NOBODY, did you hear me? NOBODY

    Bring on the Arsenal or United
    Bring on the Spaniards by the score
    Barcelona, Real Madrid
    They will make a gallant bid
    But they wont beat the Villa anymore

      That tea bags a bit strong today Langford, and I agree nothing to play for against Burnley and should at least show other talented young players, I’m not so sure on Adams full back line! 4 of them I’d show the door too, I’m one of many at the game Sunday under them cameras watching who putting in a full days work even though cup match next week. Burnley will show no quarter’s they will go for it mark my words.

        Birmingham Mail suggesting TS may include academy forward Andre Green (17) in the squad Saturday who has been training with first team and impressed. Think we might see some youngsters given a run out but also think TS will want to look at some who may or may not be here next season.

        Do you think he might rest Grealish and possibly Delph / Cleverley and bring Sinclair and Gabby into the side?

    Sherwood admitting that our defenders were’nt 100% fit probably didn’t help either! They just came at us with pace and we couldn’t keep up!

    I would play the starting XI that we intend to field in the FA Cup.

    After the Southampton debacle, we have to show that we can be competitive and Burnley should be there for the taking.

    I have no issue blooding three young lads second half once we have the game under control.

    I don’t think that players who have played a game a week all season need a rest at all.

    If he wants to play a reserve type side guarding against injuries, I think that is taking a huge chance by putting out a side at Wembley that haven’t played for over a fortnight, and when they did, got hammered !
