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.

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!!

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 

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..

Then you should have noticed he has gone backwards massively 

He hasn’t he had a tough season but Brentford were very open at the back last season so most keepers would of struggled,

form is temporary class is Permanent,

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?

Our aim is to become one

Look, I hope I’m wrong. Fingers crossed

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.

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.

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