    So I'm sure we all expect a huge amount of changes for this game but what do you think will be starting 11. Imaginary gold star to the closest Yid.

    My Guess:

    GK - Cudicini
    RB - Hutton
    CB - Chimbo
    CB - Dervitte
    LB - Naughton
    RM - Bentley
    CM - Livermore
    CM - O'Hara
    LM - Rose
    ST - Crouch
    ST - Pava

    Bench - Button, Bostock, GDS, Boateng, Defoe, Corluka, Hudd

    So what do you think, am I expecting too many youngsters?

    Wednesday 7:45. I do not think its televised, but highlights will be on BBC/ITV (can't remember)

    I am hoping

    GK: Carlo
    RB: Naughton
    CB: Bassong
    CB: Corluka
    LB: BAE
    RM: Bentley
    CM: O'Hara
    CM: Huddlestone
    LM: Giovanni
    ST: Pav
    ST: Crouch

    Bench: Button, Rose, Defoe, Keane, Lennon, Livermore, Bostock

    I think there will be a balance

    Gona have to pull you up already... Livermores at derby ;)
    I think that defense is about right though, but is Gio fit? If he is i think he should get a game left mid, and play either Boateng or Jenas with O'Hara

    ------------------------------Cudicini-----------------------------
    Hutton---------Chimbonda-----------Dervitte---------Naughton
    Bentley--------------Jenas-----------O'Hara-------------Giovani
    -----------------------Crouch---------Pav------------------------

    Should be strong enough for Doncaster, who havn't started great in the CCC (not won in 4 i think)

    I had a look to see how Livermore did for Derby at the weekend against Plymouth, aparently he did alright, but was at fault for a goal

    Rams eager to keep Livermore - Tottenham Hotspur News from football.co.uk

    Derby will contact Tottenham this week to see if they can extend Jake Livermore's loan spell.

    The midfielder made his debut for the Rams in Saturday's 2-1 home victory over Plymouth. He had to wait for the first appearance of his one-month loan while he completed a seven-match ban for receiving two red cards while playing for Spurs reserves at the end of last season.

    The trip to east midlands rivals Nottingham Forest at the weekend is due to be the final game of Livermore's stay at Pride Park but boss Nigel Clough wants to keep the 19-year-old for longer.

    Clough, who felt Livermore improved as the game against Plymouth unfolded, said: "Jake was a bit tentative, like the rest of the team, early on but I thought once the first half-an-hour was out of the way he got into it.

    "He gave the ball away for their goal but in the second half we saw a bit more of him making his runs forward, which is what he is in the team for - especially if he is going to play instead of Paul Green.

    "It was his first competitive game for a long time and there is more to come from him and we are very pleased with him and with what we have seen of him in training."

    I always enjoy the cup games so I'm excited about wednesday. I hope we will se some of our young players but exactly how many changes Harry will make is difficult to guess. I seriously doubt that he will change the entire team or most of it, so I'm guessing 4 or 5 changes at the most. King is definitely out and I could also see Defoe being rested. I expect Crouch and Naughton to start and hopefully we will get to see guys like Rose and Bostock. I don't really know how Dos Santos is doing, if he's fit and ready, but if he is I think he should play.

    Would someone in the know please enlighten me on JJ's lack of football this season.

    Saw him play in the Asia Cup but nothing since then?

    Is he injured or do we forsee a move to Villa?

    from what i got off of the official website was, the week before our opening game against Liverpool, he picked up a calf injury i think as was marked as doubtful for the game. As you know he missed that game and our following two, so i can only guess that he is still injured.

    There are a few reports today going around about an interview that Harry gave, where he spoke of the english contingent in the club. In the report, he says he hopes that Crouch, Defoe, Huddlestone, Jenas and King all are in and around the world cup squad this year. He obviously left out names like Woodgate, Bentley, Lennon and Dawson, on purpose or not, but from that i understood that he still saw Jenas with a future with us. Im not saying that the ones mentioned are going to be sold, just i think he will be with us after the window closes.
