And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain… words appropriate for Alan Curbishley’s final game in charge this season, or words appropriate for his final game in charge, full stop? I’ll write my thoughts on the season and Curbishley’s future another time, but there’s no doubt that today’s game will be the final game for one or two players.
I expect Curbs to start with his strongest possible lineup. There’s no word as to whether Faubert is fit again, but I reckon the team will look like this…
Green, McCartney, Pantsil, Neill, Tomkins, Noble, Boa Morte, Parker, Solano, Zamora, Ashton.
Villa will be up for this, as they seek to secure a UEFA Cup position. Let’s give Marlon Harewood a warm welcome, and as for Nigel Reo Coker, wy don’t we just ignore him? Booing him will just get him pumped up.
