No I’d don’t think we will, I think we will be drip feed signing over the coming week to keep the media team busy,

be nice if they all get announced though :) kalas and Bentley the next two for me followed by a striker

…..following on from our mega popular 'goal gifs' 

It'd be great to start a new trend of announcing new signings with the release of similar gifs featuring our new players.

(be a fun way to welcome new lads to the Ashton Gate too, in a  'one of us now - gif me quick'  kind of way.)

 

Been a great couple of pre season days down The Gate this week.  Exciting Times ...Keep 'em Cummin!

We beat some big clubs to this one. Well done LJ and MA . Quality player without spending big bucks. They our club is currently run gets me all gewwie inside 👀 . Admittedly I thought we would have to spend 18m on 3 or 4 players this summer, looks like we're at £7m ish (with kalas). I would be 'bold' and stick with semenyo up front and spend money on a RB.

Glad someone has mentioned the RB slot as being an area we need to strengthen. I’m not fully sold on Hunt all all, and with Pisano leaving we definitely need some real competition in there with Jacky boy.

I thought Hunt did well second half of the season and is far better going forward than Pisano and quicker but agree we need a RB to back him up unless LJ thinks Vyner can be that player?

That’s very interesting, as I saw Hunt’s form last season as being totally opposite. I thought he was pretty decent up until Christmas, but then was poor in the new year. During the final run in he looked especially poor with his crossing and ability to engage his opposing fullback. Hmmm.

A very cheap signing and no proven track record in an extremely hard league, not excited yet ill call judgement come december. To me sounds like an investment player buy cheap sell high in couple years... Lansdowns stocks and shares method

Hunt is a proven right back with years of experience with a deadly crossing foot. No problems there

Which is why Derby and Leeds wanted him? Top up your glass, it's half empty.

Those first two sentences remind me of a certain Aden Flint.

How did he get on?

More than double what we paid for Taylor and I suppose we are getting blasé about a mere £3/4m when we are talking about players at £5m plus

What level of transfer fee convinces fans that a player is coming to compete for a first team place and not just as an "investment purchase/one for the future" ?

This is the one. A proper midfielder by all accounts. Box to box, scores goals, not lightweight. I'm excited by this guy, he should add something different.

Could be a younger version of Barry Bannon........

Every signing is a gamble though, even if it's a proven player. Ask Man Utd about Sanchez. Or Barca about Coutinho.

People said Webster was a gamble, said he'd not really shone much etc, now we've just turned down a £12m bid for him and put a price of £30m on his head. Football is all a gamble.

His crossing is shambolic generally - is the real weak link in the back 4 as it stands.

Nothing like Bannan, apart from being short!

Seen Szmodics play have you?  I haven’t but reading various comments about him he sounds like a younger version of BB - who I have seen play several times. BB is a class act and if Szmodics becomes like him we’ll have a quite a signing on our hands.

Great signing on the face of it although we all got excited with the Eisa signing .. good to have compeition for Paterson i think less chance of signing Palmer now.

That’s the philosophy behind all of our signings.

My point - possibly gone over your head - was that the ‘tattoos’ look like bruises.......I can’t see anything ‘fashionable’ in that look.

Remember Lee Peacock and his ‘fashionable’ tattoos?  He has those done 20 odd years ago and he’ll still have those now........:facepalm:

Blimey, excellent value then.

This guy knows... It's not "itch".

Sounds simply like it's Smod-icks.

Think the philosophy might also include being able to play for the first team in the meantime.

You're doing this deliberately now, aren't you?
