SIGNED: Daniel Bentley

Recommended Posts

Looks like he’s not reluctant to come off his line which is great. We’ve needed a commanding goalkeeper for a few years now and he looks the part. Good shot stopper and ball distributor too it seems.

Yep. Brave and confident off his line. I think ability wise he will be a great signing if he can stop making silly mistakes, and he is young for a goalkeeper

Maenpaa was our unsung hero last season. His injuries meant he didn't receive the plaudits that the likes of Webster, Kalas, Dasilva had. But, he barely made a mistake all season. This signing would make little sense. 

It's a funny business getting in a 2nd keeper, knowing they're only likely to play a handful of games. 

Yeap. The Mulgrew goal is the only one I can think of and that's debatable, could have been cleared at the near post.

Looks physically imposing and the type of keeper who is difficult to beat but what’s he like on the deck with the ball at his feet?

I’d guess he’d be used to it playing for Brentford who IMO play the best football in the championship

If he wasn't good with his feet we wouldn't want to sign him.

Fielding is better at everything bar with the ball at his feet.  

I would rather have Fielding

It all depends if you believe the saying about class being permanent and form being temporary. Have to assume BCFC believe it and that we have been following ever since his move to Brentford.

Let them worry about themselves, if he can unseat Nikki then he must be half decent.

He has talent no doubt and Brentford fans have said he’s chucked a few in but he’s better than fielding in all aspects

When was the last time we had two top championship level keepers? A very good signing and also will give Max the opportunity to develop on loan. 

We don’t have two now

We have one experienced keeper in Maennpaa who is an upgrade on Fielding. We now have a younger version competing for a place and Max O’Leary can go out to League 1 for a season.

I’m usually happy. Delighted over the last few years. This is the best city team in my life time and been watching city a long time

Bentley and Niki aren't established Championship keepers? 

Bentley may have been out of form in the last season, but 125+ apps at Championship level for a keeper at the age of 25 shows there is a player there.

Just to be clear, I am delighted with every aspect of the club. I’m not even that bothered if we go up cos I love watching city every other week and get to a fair few away games.

positive about nearly every signing 

I just don’t like this one

Bit much, can we not have a player leave on good terms without having a pop at him.

Not having a pop at fielding at all, go back through my posting history and you’ll see me defending him on more then one occasion,

loved frankie Bentley is just a much much better keeper

The statement was top end not established. Obviously he’s established. I just think he isn’t a goalie for a top six side
