With some help around the league, we can actually jump up two spots to 7th and overtake Sunderland and Liverpool in the process. A European spot from a league finish still seems unlikely, unless there is a Newcastle collapse, but finishing higher in the table has many secondary advantages. Also, anytime we may be able to finish above Liverpool, that opportunity must be taken. So this match is not just a waste. It does have importance.
I do believe that Moyes should slowly start to incorporate some of the young players to see where they stand in their development and also get some valuable first team experience. Not saying that he should just start all youngsters out there, but maybe we should start subbing in some of the young guys.
