Tom Craddock: On his way out

Long-serving defender Damian Batt leaves the club after 177 appearances while Simon Helsop, Jon-Paul Pittman, Tony Capaldi and Liam Davis, who all featured in their last home game of the campaign, will also depart the Kassam this summer.

Luke McCormick, Harry Worley, Peter Leven, Josh Park and Justin Richards will also head to pastures new as Chris Wilder overhauls his squad.

Andy Whing and Alfie Potter will be staying with the club after the U's took up the option on their contracts while Scott Davies and Deane Smalley have been offered new deals.

The U's will talk to defender Luke O'Brien over the next few weeks with an eye to keeping the former Bradford defender at the club next season.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
