Emmerson (and Jack Williams) are scholars so wouldn't normally be offered contracts until the end of 2020/21.

So the players we have to keep due to being under contract are:

 

Woods

Iacovitti

Wheater

Hamer

Fage

Rowe

Kokos (although I'm pretty certain he's already left the club)

 

Even if we didn't want any of those players I can't see any of them accepting mutual termination of their contracts, so we're probably stuck with them.

 

Out of the rest the only two I'd keep would be McCann and Dearnley.  The rest either aren't good enough or aren't consistent enough.

 

With everything that's going on, I think it could be massive for the club that we barely have anyone contracted past this month.  Dino doesn't have a better opportunity to build his own team when things do get up and running again either.  The jury's out for me as to whether he's the right man to do it.

You just look at that squad and could easily retire to a darkened room and cry.

 

The demise of our club over that last 20 years is heartbreaking.  Fortunately I saw the peaks in person but genuinely feel sorry for those generations of fans who’ve grown up after that QPR semi-final.

Sylla was one of the few players who's game improved last season and would've been useful to hang onto. 

 

Not a world-beater by any stretch, but the fact he's gone and likely to be replaced only by someone inferior should worry us..

Well I hope Maamria can spot talent better than his employer and his clueless brother.

 

No doubt we’re going to be playing around Danny Rowe, but it’ll be interesting to find out what the situation with Wheater is. There seems to be a question mark over whether he’s contracted to another season.

 

The midfield is a full rebuild.

Number one priority is the defence 

 

The midfield isn't great, but that back line is a two goal head start for the opponents.

 

If there is anyone out of contract who can head the ball, pass 10 yards to the midfield and can play more than five matches without an injury, then sign them up

Can't imagine anyone out of contract will be being offered a new one at the current time.

Wheater, Egert, Iacovitti, Stott, Hamer. Get Piergianni and Borthwick-Jackson and maybe Mills signed and we’ll have eight defenders on the books.

Nicola said in her interview that she was worried when Wheater had told them that he had come off his bike, but relieved to hear he was ok. Perhaps that indicates his contract was extended. 

 

Egert hasn't really had much chance to show what he can do because of the injury layoff and that stupid sending off.

 

Iacoitti isn't up to it IMO.

 

Stott. Maybe we should persevere for another season, but I wouldn't be worried if he left.

 

Hamer may improve a bit more. Forget the long throws. 

 

Piergianni, Borthwick-Jackson, Mills should be re-signed.  

 

There will be better than all of them out their this summer though.

Definitely keep him Dearnley and Rowe.

 

We haven't heard if any of the 8 payers who refused to be furloughed were made redundant.

Coke was one of them so I don't think they need to worry about him.

Could be wrong, but I thought Iacovitti had gone.

He's free to a good home.

Has Sylla definitely gone? Very disappointing if so.

It hasn't been officially confirmed on the official club website and until then it is not official but yes he has gone along with most of the other foreign players.

where’s this come from?  If you don’t mind me asking. I presume that doesn’t include McCann.

Confirmed by the club he signed for, so I think yeah.

Shame. Don’t blame the club for releasing him in the current climate to be honest. Glad he isn’t going to another league 2 club.

 

Keep Rowe and McCann.

I want Maouche to stay but won’t be too suprised/bothered if he does go. 
Think fage could come good. 
 

The rest can go for me, including the manager.

Wheater said his extension has been triggered on his insta.
