  1. No set extra time and penalties, just next goal wins. Every 5 minutes during the extra period both teams lose a player.
  2. Not bought my ticket yet. Although I'm not going, so that'd make sense.
  3. I'm surprised people are so surprised about Niclas Eliasson?! There was very clearly a serious player in there from his debut at Birmingham City in August 2017!
  4. I really enjoyed listening to this, although you definitely bottled using the phrase “Conference Manager” after you’d teed it up for yourself.
  5. It depends how you define "forgoing cup competitions", because did we not forgo the Carabao Cup when we fielded a near-reserve side at Premier League Watford in the early rounds?
  6. Funny to think we’ve spent the best part of £10m on two defenders and there’ll still be some nobhead about two weeks into the season saying Steve Lansdown doesn’t want us to get promoted.
  7. This is absolutely no reflection on Rene, but it’s odd to think we’re signing this guy when, if all goes to plan, he’ll never make an appearance for us despite being fit and available at all times. It makes absolute sense to have an insurance policy in place to avoid a repeat of last season’s goalkeeping mess, though.
  8. You’ve hit the nail on the head - Max made some really outstanding saves, but his all-round game just isn’t top-six Championship level yet. And I emphasise yet, because I’m a massive fan. But, ultimately, if Niki goes down seriously injured in game five or six Max suddenly becomes our number one for at least half of the season and that’s a huge risk. Personally, I think it’s fantastic we’ve finally signed a young, quality, proven goalkeeper for the Championship. With the exception of Frank, who we signed in League One, I’m struggling to remember the last goalkeeper we invested in with a view to them being our long-term number one. Anyone?! I reckon we learned that lesson the hard way in the final few months of last season.
  9. It’s frankly about time we were prepared to spend on signing a really quality, young goalkeeper.
  10. Someone should probably do a tweet about that.
  11. What's the thinking behind asking fans to pre-order a shirt/kit with no sign of when that product is actually going to available?
  12. I mean, that would explain a few things... (Oh come on, if I hadn't said it someone else would've...)
  13. If we're looking seriously at a back three, I'd be interested to see Marlon Pack in one of those slots. Good one-on-one defender, strong in the air, good positionally and obviously comfortable on the ball.
