Then you should have noticed he has gone backwards massively

How many times you seen him play Monkeh? Genuinely interested as cannot fathom why everyone seems delighted

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 

Dave. He is a talent, everyone could see that a couple of years ago at Southend. he apparently has had a wobbly time at Brentford, but if you bother to read back through this thread you will see that he seems to have a very valid reason for this as there was a personal issue in his life that would have damaged his concentration. That is in the past now and we have given him a new environment to get back on track.

Yes you've made your point.

The key thing about Bentley is that it appears to be that he was brilliant at Southend, and very good at Brentford up until last season. I would be surprised if at 25 he gets worse and he stays worse and never gets back to the player he was when he was say 23 and younger.

Yeah but he’s a footballer who gets paid 10 grand a week so must be a robot who doesn’t get affected by personal stuff us mere mortals might be upset about!!

We are not a top 6 side so seems a fair signing

I just don’t like this one 

Don't mind it but a bit of a slap in the face to Max who stood up and did the business when required

He will come again Tone, plenty of time especially if the new coach can get him commanding his box..

Not that impressed with this, he is a walking goal against in my opinion and have thought the same every time we played Brentford.

Be very happy to be proved wrong but silky as he may be, no where near as good as Maenpaa who must start as no 1.

Why? he's very young a year on loan would do him the world of good

That doesn't make any sense at all.

Max played very well in the side in Nikki's absence, so why drop him from the squad?

There is a player there who can develop into a top 6 keeper though, which is our ethos. Many would have said the same about a certain Adam Webster last season and look how he has come on under LJ.

Max didn’t let us down by any stretch but to me he needs another 40-50 professional games asap to get up to speed. He wouldn’t have got that here unless Niki picked up an injury simply because he isn’t at that level just yet.

Connor Ripley is a quality keeper. 

Has had many personal problems.  Sorry for not foreseeing his personal problems!

He did well enough IMO. Might need some coaching on a few aspects of his game but basically did his job very well.

Because of lack of experience he will go out on loan, then when Nikki leaves he will replace him with a lot more experience under his belt

I saw a quote somewhere a while ago from Neil Harris describing him as the best keeper outside of the PL.

An exaggeration no doubt but he is certainly rated.

All goalkeepers make mistakes. Lets get behind him and get his confidence high.I think this could be a great signing for us.

Agreed. Everyone will be behind him I’m sure. I know I will be.

Been tracking him for years haven't we? Good luck to him, great potential, great signing. Goalkeeping looking very strong.

Kalas and a right back next please...

Because he’s young and needs regular games. Splinters up his backside isn’t what he needs at this stage of his development.

I think he will know his place in the team though and will know LJ's plans for him.

Form is temporary, class is permanent.

The leadership team changed at Brentford last year; the coaching, discussions and overall environment many not have been to Bentley’s liking, as a result he may not have been able to perform at his best.

He is talented and I think we have the setup and ambition to help him flourish.

Good signing - welcome Daniel.

Don't agree with the sentiment, but thats opinions for you.

He looked to me that he was every bit ready to get that experience here, didn't let us down at all.

Not for me, he struggled to command his box for me, and that’s only due to lack of experience,

He will make a good living and hopefully with city but he isn’t there just yet

Da Silva back was excellent, but also really required once Kelly moved on.

The lad from Colchester seems a no-brainier as is young, a two time top scorer for them, and for compensation too, so essentially a punt, and hopefully a decent one.

Bentley would have been a massive signing a few years back when he was very highly rated, but with his form cooling a bit, this looks more like an opportunist signing of a player with promise than a big shot signing - but that’s no bad thing, and may have helped us get him.

I‘m happy with the business so far; Kalas would be a massive one too, so hopefully that is on. Am hoping we find a striker to plug into the senior ranks too, as were shallow there at time last year, but plenty of time yet.

Nice work so far from the club.

Very pleased with this signing.

Felt a few years ago we should've gone for him when at Southend but City didn't seem to want to invest in the keeper position in the same way as an outfield player. Can be worth several points a season with a good keeper.  

Welcome DB.

It’s not a question of sending Max out on loan, it’s finding for him the right loan, where he will be expertly coached. I wonder whether we are, so say, signing the keeper from Colchester specifically to provide coaching to Max at the club to which he is loaned (obviously acting as our third choice keeper if required)? Just a thought.

Welcome to BCFC Dan, it will be really good to have strong opposition for the keepers shirt, guessing Max will go out on loan while NM and DK battle it out for the shirt. If he’s better than NM then he will be an excellent signing. 

Delighted with our transfer business so far.

Ideally he needs a League 1 loan and he is certainly good enough to get one if someone has a spot available.
