Oh dear - I think I'd try to keep off it in this awful wet weather - aerate if we get a reasonable spell of weather then leave it alone for the winter.  As soon as it's dry enough to walk on it in the spring scarify and try your new lawnseed.

Anybody feeling chatty?

And the suckers will be your plants for the following years - if you take them all out you'll have little fruit in the future
