So the last game of the season, 3 pts would be nice but it wouldnt be a disaster if we didnt manage to grab all the points and therefor I'd like to see some youngsters get a chance along with Ferreira as I believe its his last game with us.

-----------------------Cech

----------Paulo--Luiz-----Ivan--Bertrandt

-----------------------Mikel

-----------Ramires----------Josh

Kalou----------------------------------Zhirkov

---------------------Torres

Something like this perhaps?

If that's the lineup, give Paulo the armband?

Looks fine to me, but I would also put in Turnbull instead of Cech, who really needs a rest.

Ahead of the three months he is about to get off? But nah i agree give the youngsters including turnball a go

Ivan? He seems ideal captain material if you ask me!

I agree that Ivan seems like good captain material, I was just suggesting Paulo only if, as the original poster said, if it's his last game it'd be a nice little honor for him to captain the side for a bit, IMO.

I don't believe Carlo will take any chances with the last game of the season. He'll want to end up with all the flags flying. If he screws this one up he's a dead duck. This is the team I believe he will start.

Cech

Ivan Alex Terry Cole

Ramires Mikel Lampard

Kalou Drogba Malouda

If there is ever a meaningless EPL match, this is the one. Win or lose, Carlo's fate has been decided, so I don't think there is the must win factor. I expect a similar lineup like the Newcastle game, maybe Zhirkov get a game, or farewell game for that matter. I won't be shocked if the reserve goal keeper get a game, from memory, our defenders actually took more responsibilities when Hilario was in goal. Everon always make it difficult for us, don't expect anything less this time.

I agree it's not a MUST win situation. It's a matter of pride. I bet Carlo wants to finish the season with a win and is unlikely to gamble with a reserve goalkeeper etc.,

We are playing Everton not West Ham.

It will be a tough game...the last time we beat them was under Avram (correct me if I'm wrong?). I'd like to see similar line-ups to those above, is Bertrand fit? If he is then he should be given a go, Ashley has had a huge number of games considering his ankle trouble.

All I want is a worthy finish. Sure we have the 2nd place in the bag and therefore it doesn't matter if we win or lose, but it would be great to see the players give all in this final game.

But I also would like to see players like Yossi and Yuri get a chance. Yuri doesn't seem like a player Carlo want to keep so this might be his final game. Would be great to see him once more.

I wouldn't put in a ridiculous experimental team like some are suggesting. Cech out for Turnbull? Everton away isn't an easy fixture. What if they absolutely batter us? Nobody wants to end the season like that.

Suspect it will be a similar team that we played vs Newcastle. Maybe Drogba coming in for Anelka ? And maybe Mikel for one of the midfield men, possibly Josh, id actually be surprised if he got a start away to Everton.

Be interesting to see if Luiz makes the cut, im sure he was left out last week because of his drama at OT.

I wonder how many players we will be saying goodbye too ?

I thought bertrand had a knock?

I've heard that too. When does PVA officially get back from his loan? Leicester's season is over now and he's under 21 so doesn't have to be named to our official squad to qualify to play. For that matter, maybe we could get Bruma involved too?

We have secured second place. I think we should rest the players who have played virtually in every game this season. Ash, Ivan, Cech among them. Hilario for Turnball for me after having watched the reserve team final the other night...Turnball looked very suspect. I wouldn't include Torres either. He needs to get a good rest, clear his head and come back fresh and ready for pre-season.

My team would be:

.......................Hilario......

Paulo.....Luiz......Alex.....Bertrand

......................Mikel......................

Lampard(Josh 2nd Half).......Yossi.

........Kalou......Drogba.......Zhirkov.....

Losing our last game of the season is unthinkable and after the disaster of last weeks performance it wouldnt surprise me .

Carlo has never got the better of Moyes in six meetings - 5 draws, 1 Everton win.

So don't be surprised if it ends in a draw.

Another 'training day' ....it really doesn't matter what the score is hardly effects either team...the Blues might pick it up a bit following last weeks absymal performance just to end on a high......there again...maybe not.....a bore draw I'm afraid. :indifferent0018:
