  1. Only way this massive balls up is in any way acceptable is Gayle or Vydra in tomorrow. Wells is clearly not anything special at this level. Got to spend some serious cash and/or wages tomorrow.
  2. Bollocks. A whole summer wasted. Hope he's wrong but doubt it.
  3. Vilmos Sebok wasn't it?
  4. Desperately trying to remain positive in light of ITK guys on here saying good things but the more I read about this the more it feels like we may miss out and then have a panic buying situation on our hands before Thursday. Hope I'm wrong.
  5. Fair play, assuming no announcement at this time tonight?
  6. There is renewed confidence within Ashton Gate that the club can secure a loan deal for Arsenal's Eddie Nketiah before Thursday's transfer deadline. ADVERTISING inRead invented by Teads Although the Gunners are still to make a decision on whether to let the 20-year-old leave this season or keep him in north London, Bristol Live understands Bristol City are now at the front of the queue ahead of a clutch of Championship clubs. Cardiff City, Swansea City, QPR and Bundesliga side Augsburg have all declared an interest in Nketiah but if he is to be loaned out for 2019/20, it appears increasingly likely it will be to the Robins. Head coach Lee Johnson admitted on Sunday signing a striker is a priority this week amid a potential five new incomings and Nketiah is thought to be the club's No1 target. Nketiah doesn't quite fit the concept of Mark Ashton's desire to sign a "proven No9", as stated during BBC Radio Bristol's Sports Forum on July 29, but he is one of the outstanding striking talents in the country, more advanced in his career than Tammy Abraham was when he signed for City from Chelsea for the 2016/17 season. That has prompted City to make an increased financial offer to Arsenal to secure the talented forward which has helped negotiations, as has the club's recent history of working with, and improving young players. There was a fear last month within BS3 that other Championship sides and clubs abroad had overtaken them in the race as the most suitable teams were assessed. At Swansea, for example, he would be their No1 striker with Oli McBurnie signing for Sheffield United last week, but at Bristol City he would be in competition with Famara Diedhiou and Andi Weimann. But City's financial pledge and the increased pitch from within the club has enhanced their position. Nketiah's future, however, still remains undecided due to the reported split at the club over which scenario will best suit his long-term development. Following an outstanding pre-season in which he has scored three goals in games against Bayern Munich and Fiorentina, Nketiah has been viewed by head coach Unai Emery as his third striker option behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. That is the exact reason why he wasn't loaned to Augsburg in January and Emery is said to remain keen on keeping him in his first-team squad, especially with Alexandre Lacazette suffering an ankle injury during pre-season. But the arrival of Nicolas Pepe has made the situation more flexible as, while the Ivorian is a winger, he does offer another goalscoring option. That is coupled with the desire of the academy, led by Per Mertesacker, and other members of the technical staff to give Nketiah significant first-team minutes which, barring a dramatic injury crisis between now and Thursday, means he will have to be loaned out. Took one for the team...
  7. Was my first thought if true, would be nice.
  8. If you’d have offered me Kalas, Da Silva & Palmer on permanent deals in exchange for Lloyd Kelly I’d have taken your arm off. Excellent business.
  9. Like the kit, badge is cheap looking. Maybe it’ll grow on me.
  10. I had us in on goal difference. Not sure any of us could take that amount of drama!
  11. Someone on the “let’s be clear...” count?
