I was thinking who we should play for our EL tour and this is what I came up with:
Bit stuck on the 2nd CB, would have been Caulker and Khumalo pairing if they were not both out on loan. I also would think Townsend and Kane may end up out on loan also, which would mean we would have to play some first XI!

Midfielers will be like: Sandro, Niko, townsend, Livermore, Pienaar, Bentley
Up front: Kane and Couliblay
or Coulibaly and Christian (insert spanish name)

Corluka Bassong (if hes still here) Kaboul Rose
Townsend Livermore/Hudd Niko?? Pienaar
1 first team striker and 1 young one
Hard to say right now.......think we definitely need a blend of experience and youth, no way will we start both those young strikers you two have up there.

Personally, for our Europa League campaign, I would blood youngsters who (by virtue of their age) are not included in the 25 man squad that we must declare for the Premier League.
However, since being drawn against Hearts, I think for this qualifying tie we should play a team of our decent second string players as I can't bear the thought of my Scottish mates taking the piss out of me if Hearts win the tie!!!!!

Really depends on like, first-team injuries and stuff.. because if Lennon and Bale get injured, then Bentley, Kranjcar or Pienaar would probably take their places.. meaning they would be tired in the upcoming Europa fixture.
Hopefully something like this (without any injuries)
CB: A toughy.. Kaboul
CM: Palacios (providing he stays if not, Jenas)
CM: Livermore (or in a more attacking role, Kranjcar)
Not really sure.. can't decide until transfer deadline, of course we could've increased our depth and first team by then.

Marian Kello - our goalkeeper and best player by a mile, should be in the prem soon
Ryan McGowan - only a young lad but is strong and fast, not a threat attacking though
Marius Zaliukas(c) - just out of anger management Big Zal is a very able defender but calling him clumsy would be an understatement(wouldn't say that to his face mind)
Eggert Jonsson - very popular with fans but nobody can tell you why
Danny Grainger - good corner taker, good crosser and good defender
David Templeton - Lionel who?
Ian Black - i wouldn't play anyone important in centre mid if i were Arry
Jamie Hammill - see Blackie
Sir Rudi Skacel - LEGEND, any shot at goal within 30 yards will be in the net
Ryan Stevenson - not much ability but Stevo has the Heart of a lion, a first rate attitude
Kevin Kyle - as a man he is a cult hero, as a player he is a battering ram and would put his head where others woudn't put there foot
p.s this is assuming we don't make signings before then

A young side would be good to see
Harry Kane impressed at Orient last term
Rest Bale and Modric for sure
