If we all want to be a part of history on Tuesday night, imagine how the lads must feel as they wait to see if they will be involved in the last ever team to perform at the Boleyn.
They will witness the parade of legends which will include the likes of Bonzo, Hursty, Parkesy McAvennie, Cottee, Devo, Sir Trev and all the rest.
And they will surely be thinking: “Will my name be written into the pages of history as future generations ponder the last ever names to represent the club at this – perhaps the most unique theatres of football – in the UK.
Slaven Bilic has the toughest job of his managerial career as he prepares to witness the delight and despair on dressing room faces he knows so well.
Sentiment says that some MUST play and the first I think of is Ginge – a Hammer to his backbone who surely deserves a last farewell particularly when you remember how the defence played yesterday.
It’s really sad that one of our biggest terrace heroes for a long time – Adrian – will be missing but I huess after Ginge, the team virtually picks itself although which of Reid or Ogbonna makes way – if that’s to be the case – is anyone’s guess.
Here’s my starting X1 and given the problems Antonio has experienced against the pace of United previously this season he has to surely be moved forward into the role handed to the ineffective Moses yesterday.
So here is my
FINAL BOLEYN STARTING X1:
Randolph, Tomkins, Reid, Collins, Cresswell; Kouyate, Noble, Lanzini, Payet, Carroll, Sakho
