That just seems very short termist to me. Iíd rather we become more scrupulous in who we pay £100k a week to rather than restrict opportunities to young players in meaningless games.

Look at the bigger picture for once.

Iíd also argue that playing our so-called best team is almost certain not to result in a victory anyway as we canít seem to win at home.

Iím just talking about two or three changes rather than wholesale changes anyway.

No Palace game is meaningless. At least not to me and I hope, not to the players.

But would be nice to see some new talent and an old face there at some stage.

I know what you mean - while itís not meaningless itís as close as weíre going to get in the premier league.

Iíd just love to see a couple of young players and/or a more attacking formation. The kind we played against Cardiff.

Hope we see Speroni at some point for his last game for us

Only if we are winning 2/3 nil in added time.

Howe talking about Bournemouth having a big summer in the transfer market, letís ensure that they have slightly less cash.

Celestial Empire 06-05-2019 10:19 AM

100% with the OP. The time to test promising academy lads is in the pre-season (last year's Scandinavian games).

Unfortunately, West Ham have most of their injured players back and have found some form, whilst Watford only have eyes for the FA Cup. I will be surprised if Watford win (a draw won't help us).

How about playing a couple of youngsters to see if we can save 10m in the transfer market....way more than 3.8m.

Easy to say.
Who would you chuck into the team against an energetic and cynical Bournemouth side ? Name names.

Langers 06-05-2019 10:32 AM

Another comfortable win

Mr Palace 06-05-2019 10:45 AM

Flanagan and Woods perhaps.

Not sure Flanagan is ready yet but would be good to see Woods involved even if just from then bench.

bodger 06-05-2019 11:04 AM

Flanagan POTS for the 23s give him a go for sure. I hate Bournemouth Fraser is the biggest/smallest diving nasty cheat in the league their players are all over the ref trying to get players carded. Not losing is the main thing winning would be great.

True, if you knew the money was going into improving the ground instead of a players pocket then it would matter more.

MAW 06-05-2019 11:21 AM

If we win 5-0, we will finish the season with a positive goal difference.

dave_who_ru 06-05-2019 11:21 AM

If you want to see the youngsters there are always the under 23 games.

Bournemouth will want to win so there is no room for a sentimental / experimental line-up on our part.

Players like Dreher, Flanagan and Woods will still qualify as under 21 players next season so I tend to think pre-season is more important for them than being thrown into an end of season game.

Tomo 06-05-2019 11:43 AM

Lol.

I couldnít give 2 hoots about the match tbh. That potential money will not mean a jot to me or any other fan. We wonít see the benefits.

We should go out purely to provide some entertainment to the fans whoíve been starved of it for most of the season at Selhurst Park.
