Brian O'Connell offers some further insight into Jay Heaps' plans for his squad ahead of the upcoming 3-game stretch, including the possibility of moving Ryan Guy to center back. It sounds like we'll be in store for a lot of roster tweaking in the coming week--should be interesting.

For you EPL fans out there (I assume most of you), check out who The Shin Guardian picked as their best XI for this past season as it now draws to a close.
