Out:

Clyne: Will be let go and rightly so.

Hennessy: Iím sure he will get an offer from the Championship.

Sakho: He has been as good as gone since the start of the year.

Wickham: Please god get rid of him.

PVA: His mind has been made up to leave and he wonít be short of decent offers.

Bats: Obviously going as only on loan.

Scott Dann: He looks finished so there is no way he should be offered a new deal.

McCarthy: The injuries this season should have pushed the club to move him on.

Stay:

Benteke: After his end to the season I will be surprised if he is not offered a new deal but problem is now he will have offers elsewhere to compete with ours.

Cahill: Has shown enough this year to be offered a 1 year deal.

Ward: He has his faults stays injury free but and decent this season and at 31 I think I will be offered a new deal.


We have a major puzzle ahead this summer and I think a lot of the contract issues will be decided on wether we have other players lined up.

Only one of these I would change is Cahill. I know he's ( like all of our CB's ) had injury problems this season, but I think he's underperformed and not worth another expensive contract.

I think we need to sign at least 2 CB's in the summer.

I am in total agreement and had this conversation only last night.
He will be 36 this year and his performances have waned over the season.

Agreed. He is one of the main reasons we sit so deep, he's slow. I noticed a few times when he has failed to react quick enough to block, and turns his back resulting in opposition goals. I was surprised when he came in, I thought we should have been looking for younger players then; now the CB area is desperate for an overhaul.

I concur with these sentiments whilst adding that sitting deep is not solely due to Cahill's deficiencies in the twilight of his career.
Central defence is definitely an area which needs strengthening.

Itís been reported that Ferguson has a long term injury now.
Puts Ward in a strong negotiating position for a new deal.
There must be doubt about offering Clyne another contract with his injury record.
Could mean we also need to be looking at a right back to the other positions on the shopping list.

Seems what you are correct . . .

Oh sorry I thought you were joking thatís why I laughed. If you are actually serious about keeping them both then I canít really say much more.

Um, yeah you can. You can offer your opinion in contrast to mine...that would be a start?

My argument is that a fit Sakho and Wickham would be like two decent new signings for free. And if we can secure them on some sort of pay as you play basis, it might be worth hanging onto them.

Not sure itís that far fetched an idea...but would welcome your counter argument nonetheless.

You are not wrong. After all Sakho is widely recognised by Palace fans as having been a very good defender and Wickham is still younger than the vast majority of our 1st team squad.

BUT can we realistically expect them to become injury free? I suppose we have to pass that one over to our medical people. How often can a player's body get injured and repaired and not become more susceptible to further injuries? I don't know. I'll leave that to fans with the medical knowledge. BUT, if there is hope for these two players and if we could retain them on some form of a pay as they play basis then I wouldn't rule that out.

A fit Sakho and Wickham, more change of Halleyís Comet landing in the holmesdale.
I donít think Wickham was ever premier league level, sakho I recognise the name, but couldnít place him.

Keep:
Guaita, Butland,
Tomkins, Ferguson (I suppose),Cahill (just: possible coaching role? Good influence), Mitchell.
Eze, Townsend, Riedewald (I know), Schlupp, Milivojevic.
Benteke.

I'd be that radical. The rest aren't good enough for another season and I'd sell Zaha. There's enough experience here to bring in players from the U.23 and U.18. We'll never know if they're good enough unless they are given a chance. We need to bring in six more players, doubtless a couple on a 'free', get a couple of loans in (and please can they be players that the Manager actually believes in?)
The objections to such a course are obvious, but we need a blood transfusion after this year's performance. Even though we finished comfortably ahead of the relegated sides, the writing's on the wall for next year. I am glad that Roy Hodgson has left but accept the argument that the present squad could only escape relegation with a manager such as he (risk limitation).
Of course, as the Hibernian said, I wouldn't start from here. To have so many players out of contract doesn't suggest a well run club.
