It'll be interesting to see the side we put out on Thursday, I hope to see more of Coleman and Agard (partnering Yak up front) in particular and I'd hope also a start for Duffy, Baxter, Nash (!) and maybe some others like Mustafi, etc.

Should be an opportunity for Moyes to experiment a little though.

Agree with giving the young fringe players a game, there's nothing on this game at all so might as well take the opportunity to experiment and give some of them a run out.

I'd certainly like to see Agard given a start, as well as Coleman and Baxter.  Would probably be another good opportunity for Duffy too, and it's about time we saw a bit more of James Wallace too.

Waste of time playing the game really. Will change nothing.

I hope Moyes does rest players though. This game is not important, for once, so I'd try:

Nash
Coleman  Duffy  Mustafi (someone other than Baines)
Cahill* Peterlin Wallace
Arnoux Baxter Agard

*as he didn't play today, but I'd tell him to take it very easy. We'd get battered, but it would be interesting. Not sure if some of them are out of position as well, but either way, may as well give 'em all a go.

I just don't really want first teamers picking up more injuries in an utterly-meaningless game. And confidence won't be hit if we lose with a team of youngsters either.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

Gosling (If fit) Wallace Fellaini Baxter

I'd play Hibbert ahead of Coleman in that.Want Coleman available for the league game.

Apparently Howard refuses to sit out a game. The man's a machine!

A counter argument is that we're finally getting a bit more confidence and maybe the BATE game would be another good stage for us to keep building towards the form we showed last season?

We won't see wholesale changes. Moyes will probably give Pienaar a break if his knee has still got that support strap on it (couldn't tell if he did from today's stream). I'd expect to see Saha, Howard and Fellaini benched too. The only youngsters I can see starting are Coleman, Baxter, Agard and Duffy. Yakubu and Nash should be given run outs too.

So, something like this:

-----------------Nash------------
Coleman---Hibbert--Duffy---Baines
Baxter---Rodwell---Cahill---Billy
---------Agard----Yakubu-----

Cahill will be fine as he missed out today, Billy and Baines will play because Moyes doesn't have anyone to play instead of Baines, and Billy will start because Europe is slower and he needs to learn how we play still. Hibbert to start also as we have no one else.

I think a few of you are going overboard with your changes, we don't want to start our entire U18 side here, a win will help us continue to build confidence and that's important here.

Like Thom said it will likely only be Coleman, Duffy, Agard, and Baxter starting. I think bily has to play because he's quite good in europe and the same goes for rodwell. I would like to see james wallace come off the bench though if the opportunity comes up.

Moyes will want to win no matter what side he puts out, and rightfully so, we still haven't been winning even if the performances are better and a win will bring even more confidence.

Wow, Timmy is a fighter :D
I'd like to see Nash in goal however, before he dies of old age anyway.

I don't expect too many changes to start with. (that's not David Moyes)
But if the match goes well, we can see some of our young uns come on.
