    The trouble is, it`s too early in the season to know who we want to win and lose! 

    That’s very true, I’m just guessing based on how the teams look. It was that guessing that landed me 0 points on super 6 😂

    This one looks intriguing. Lots of new signings for both (Albert starts for Forest) but how will the Baggies cope with losing Gayle & Rodriguez?

    Zohore filling the boots of both Gayle and Rodriguez seems an impossible ask. 

    Excited for this, another one of the ‘challengers’ about to drop points following Fulham and Diff losses.

    So now the obvious wind up has been put on ice, can OTIB members now stop competing to show how cool they are with the world of LGBTQIAPK+ ...?

    The number of posts on here from people just itching to show how open minded they are just makes me cringe

    Embrace it. It's really very important that people vocally show support for causes like LGBT+. The effect discrimination can have on young people trying to figure out who they are can be devastating, as can the consequences. If people want to speak out in support they should!

    The thing is at premier league level 1 very good season and his value would probably rise to £50m if one of the big clubs came calling so there is that resale value as well. 

    That's true, and I can genuinely see him being that good. Hopefully that's my red tinted specs talking and they don't take the chance. If we can start the season with Bentley in goal and Kalas, JDS AND Webo in the squad we could be a defensive force. Best City defensive set-up in my lifetime that.

    Not sure he's the Dunk replacement directly, big ask to go from league 1 to prem regular

    Brighton do sound like our biggest problem now Villa have made the big signings they have.

    A quick google tells me Brighton's current record signing is Jahanbakhsh for 17 million. Will they be willing to pay around 1.5x that for a defender with an injury record? Let's bloody hope not.

    People seem to be making the assumption that the replacement we sign will be equally as good as Webster. I'd say that it's going to be very difficult to find anybody as good, for a reasonable price who will want to come to Bristol City. Possible of course, but unlikely. The lad is absolute class, and those are enormous shoes to fill.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't sell if silly money is offered, but we need to be realistic about the fact that breaking up the defensive partnership that was the main reason for our playoff push last season, is likely to weaken us quite a bit, and maybe we should readjust our expectations for the season.



     

    Sadly I think you’re spot on. The only way I can see around it is if we bring in just an adequate replacement then splash the real money on a striker. Defence isn’t as important if we’ve got a Maupay (just an example) hitting the net every week.

    Yep appears to be, East Anglian times reporting his 16 year stay is over and he’s joining us.

    Funnily enough he made his debut against us.

    Yea that’s the report I saw, plus a few of the hit and miss twitter pages. Bournemouth supposedly bid a million last year, more evidence this looks a good deal 😁
