So Aaron made a game thread. And Kirsten can't find it. Kirsten believes SBN ate the game thread in a moment of hunger. Aaron's thread was likely much more interesting than this one. With things like predictions and stats and tactical options and all that. But Aaron is still asleep and so Kirsten will be posting this. And at least Kirsten has lineups:

Aston Villa: Friedel; L Young, Dunne, Clark, Warnock; Albrighton, Petrov, Milner, Downing; A Young, Carew

Subs:  Weimann, Bannan, Lichaj, Heskey, Guzan, Beye, Reo-Coker

West Ham United: Green, Reid, Tomkins, Upson, Ilunga, Parker, Kovac, Noble, Faubert, Boa Morte, Cole

Subs: Stech, Gabbidon, Spector, Barrera, Piquionne, Sears, Diamanti

 

No booing, please. James Milner starts the match. He's still one of the best midfielders in the league and he's still ours. Let's take advantage of it.
