That is one heck of a young lineup, and an attacking one to boot. That's the right call here; with safety all but guaranteed at this point and Chelsea looking like heavy favorites, there's not much point to seeing what Emile Heskey can bring to the table. Of course there's also the fact that Villa don't really have any other players to put out there, but this should be exciting nonetheless.

Word is Stiliyan Petrov will be in attendance today. Hopefully the kiddos make him proud.
