As usual at our club and at most FL clubs we're set to see quite a few of our key players see their contracts expire if they aren't offered a new deal. We've lost Barry Corr, Dan Bentley and Jack Payne through this way in the past two years and whilst some were always going to leave you'd think if we had acted sooner then the exits of Corr and Payne could have been avoided, though it's doubtful we'll learn from that.

Have left out some of the youngsters e.g. Jordan Williams, Batlokwa, Cotton, Bedford as don't think many on here would be able to offer much of an opinion.

We've got options for another year in Ryan Leonard and Michael Timlin's deals and would like to see both of those activated, though there's less of a rush with Timlin I would say.

In defence, Adam Thompson, Adam Barrett, Anton Ferdinand, John White and Dan Matsuzaka in the summer and Jakub Sokolik should be after the Charlton game. For me, Thompson and Ferdinand have to get tied down ASAP, Anton probably for a year but would love to see Thompson sign for 2 or 3 years. White is good cover and little more, could depend on who is available in the summer, Sokolik is similar but expect him to go. Matsuzaka seems a prospect so could be worth another year. Next to no doubt that Adam Barrett will be gone.

In midfield, Luke O'Neill, Anthony Wordsworth, Will Atkinson. For me Woody has to get signed up now, seem to be a few clubs interested and he's been quality this season. Atkinson is playing the best he's done since he's been here and deserves one for me, and O'Neill may have to prove himself by the summer to earn a new one.

Up front, David Mooney and Jason Williams in the summer and Marc-Antoine Fortune on 23rd January. Expect Fortune will get an extension soon and if he keeps playing like at the weekend then wouldn't be surprised to see it be until the end of next season, but Williams has surely had his last chance now and would think Money would be lucky to get a new deal.

So who would you give a new deal to?
