The above trio are registered for our UEFA Cup games... if we are guaranteed progress to the next round after the Zenit game, do you think it would be a good time to give one or two a full début in Holland knowing we have nothing riding on it?

No.
34 England John Irving (19) Defender
36 England John Paul Kissock (18) Midfielder
37 England Jack Rodwell (16) Defender

The last time a 16 year old made his début in Europe for us was Colin Harvey wasn't it?

Whilst speaking of youth players, Moses Barnett is going to a sign his first pro deal this week.

I'd say yes to that! Can only be good for a players development, unless their performance leads directly to defeat!If your good enough your old enough.

might be a little off topic, but a quote from gordon strachan today when asked about playing for a draw.
"i dont know how to play for a draw, i suspect my players dont know how to play for a draw. and how do you actually tell your team to go out there not looking to win the game?"

Well... we top the group now, so yes a good opportunity to rest players and give a chance to squad/bench/new/young players. Would rather our best players 100% fit for the league games.
