According to the main squad thread - the following eight players are out of contract in the summer:

Ben Tilney
Scott Wootton
Oran Jackson
Ed Upson
Giorgio Rasulo
Hugo Logan
Connor Furlong
Sam Nombe

Plus the six we have on loan:

Josh Tymon
Scott Golbourne
Ethan Ebanks-Landell
Elliott Ward
Marcus Tavernier
Ike Ugbo

So that is potentially 14 players leaving. Who from the list above would you want to keep on?

For me I think its probably time for Rasulo to go, but would like to see the others re-sign. From the loanees, I assume Golbourne and Ward are possibilities but the other four are out of our league (whatever league that may be!). I like Golbourne.

I believe Josh Tymon, Marcus Tavernier & Ike Ugbo are destined for a higher level, so I won't include them. I would say definitely Sam Noumbe and depending on how well he does, Elliott Ward.

Only those two?

I would be disappointed if we lost Upson and Wootton this summer for nothing.

Both will have to up their game for the rest of the season. On current performance no.

Who I want to stay:
Tilney
Upson
Nombe
Logan

Who should/will go:
Rasulo
Jackson (apparently going in the summer according to BCS)
Wootton
All the loanees
Furlong


Obviously some of those loanees are good players (apparently) who are better than League 1 who we have no chance of keeping. Wootton is just too error prone for my liking, as is EEL. I don't really think we should sign players like Golbourne or Ward unless they are squad players/second choice. Rasulo just needs to move on for his sake.

I'd like Upson to stay but think unless things dramatically improve under Micciche, I don't think he will and he will move to a top end League One club. He contributes more than people think. Second most assists this and last season, and more suited to a Robboball/Quicheball style.

Yup.

Upson does the belt-and-braces Darren Potter work that doesn't look hugely visible and isn't easy to appreciate. FWIW I thought he did OK today.

Can we afford their salaries with League Two income?

Thought Upson was poor today seems to have a reasonable first twenty minutes and that is it.
His passing is not good enough or quick enough for someone in his position.

In answer to the question I can’t judge Ward on one game but he looked better than any other centre back we have. Like Golbourne, Nombe 3 young loaners are going to bigger and better plAces let the rest go
