I don't do twitter, but a friend just told me it's being reported on twitter we have paid a £3m loan fee to take him.... 

Utter bollocks 😂😂😂 there’s some right belters on  there. No way in a million years we’d pay £3m for 5 months 😂😂😂😂

With everyone fit ,it’ll be kalas and benkovic I would of thought . Although that sounds like a Eastern Europe detective series 

Might be overthinking it...but if Wells starts instead of Fammy, then we lose Fammy in our box at set pieces where he is pretty good defensively. Given that, I do wonder if we will go three at the back, but three big uns.

Dunno. I’d say, when fit, Baker is currently our best defender. 
This would basically be Benkovic + one of Baker/Kalas (depending which one feels fit enough game to game), with Williams 4th choice (which basically makes him 3rd choice because one of Baker or Kalas will always be unavailable!).

4-4-2 would be my guess.

Bentley

Hunt Benkovic Kalas JD

Elliasson Henriksen Nagy  Patto

Fammy Wells

Maybe even

Bentley

Hunt Benkovic Kalas  JD

Henriksen

Elliasson   Palmer  Patto

Fammy Wells

Two very strong line ups IMHO. Some seriously good players on the bench too.

Two lineups without Weimann. Yet he seems to be the first name on LJ's teamsheet so far.

It’s February, March and April, three months, and one game in May. Well, I say one game in May....

Maybe it was done by midday and they are waiting for something else for the reveal?

Not ITK in any way, just a guess.

Imagine his impact coming off the bench r_u. We can't fit everyone in can we? 

It was only a guess BTW, I've no idea what the line up will be.

Bennett didn’t sign for Leicester till a couple of hours ago and Benkovic deal was dependant on that deal being done

Thats based on the deals being confirmed via the media at the exact moment its finalised, the Wells deal was done well before the 10pm announcement last night given MA's interview was in daylight!

That's what I was getting at TBH D_S but Sparks is spot on, Bennett was announced way after midday.

We are now talking about a line up to compete against anyone in the Championship. Well done Bristol City. There has been a lot of work behind the scenes to make this happen.

We are defo going for it this season. Bring it on!!! 

Sounds too good to be true IMO.

Think with 4 centre halves we’ll play with a four at the back mostly . Two for each position. If we were going with three then I would think we’d keep taylor Moore instead of loaning him out. As for height, I thought the midfielder from hull was a big un

According to Wiki, Benkovic is 6 feet 4 and Henriksen 6 feet 2, both big lads.

I wonder if Lee still has his box for the reveal pic? ;) I'm a shorty too BTW so don't start.

I think if we get him in it will be a loan deal, our usual ‘try before we buy’. Same with the Hull player maybe, or anyone else.

I hate to disillusion you, RedM, but I don't think there is any possibility this is a 'try before you a buy: undoubtedly a loan, but no chance of buying him at the end unfortunately.

Err, maybe not then. 😀

As I said elsewhere I don’t take much notice of players until they sign, don’t read up about them. This player is getting a lot of momentum regarding rumour at the moment so who knows

Ironically enough, he went to hanham high school 

So I believe stevie. Didn't Russell Howard go there as well? I've family that went there a few years ago. Used to be a really good school. I think our own @cheesleysmate went there too.

had to look this up as I went to Hanham High, I was in the 2nd year to use as a brand new school. Its correct Stephen Merchant did go, but some time after me, although according to Wiki Russell Howard went to Bedford High School

Lack of creativity leaves us lacking. Take Eliasson out and the service isn’t there.

Heard he’s signed on loan. Same person told me Semenyo was off to sunderland which has now been confirmed. Also signed the Norwegian lad from Hull on loan. With Moore going to Blackpool.

Yes. Merchant definitely a Hanham High product. 
He was the year above me. I used to take the piss out of him - there was a mate of mine in our year who we used to falsely accuse of having a man-o-man relationship with Merchant (as teenage kids do).
@cheeseleysmate, I can confirm was also in my year - and the main one responsible for the said ‘abuse’. 😉
As it was, the mate of Merch from my year was a chap called Matt Thorne, who went on to Cambridge and wrote a number of novels. 
His first one was called 8 Minutes Idle and was the concept from where Merch got The Office.

If we did manage promotion then anything could be possible :fingerscrossed:

And yet we were scoring goals in the early part of the season. The problem was letting too many in.
