Fabian Broghammer, Oliver Norburn and Ellis Harrison, regulars in John Ward's side during the second half of the league campaign, have been offered new deals along with youngsters Ollie Clarke, Mitch Harding and Jordan Goddard.

Seanan Clucas and Danny Woodards, who both suffered cruciate ligament injuries this season, have both been offered new deals.

"They are two players we would have offered contracts to had they been fit, and we feel they still have a lot to offer the club," Ward told the club's official website. "They proved their worth to me since I joined the club, and even though their involvement was cut short, they played a big part in what we are trying to do here.

"We will also be getting three new faces with players returning from injury. With Matt Harrold, Matt Gill and David Clarkson all expected to be back for pre-season it will be like having three new signings."

Fellow long-term injury victims Scott Bevan and Adam Virgo will stay with the club until they are back to fitness but have not been offered new deals along with Joe Anyinsah, Ross Staley, Connor Finn and Sam Kamara and former Sunderland striker Oumare Tounkara.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
