Subtle as a flying brick

I'm a big Red Bull F1 fan so this collaboration is like a dream for me tbh, absolutely loving the RB stuff. Obviously I absolutely don't want our name or stadium name changed for them, this is plenty of RB coverage without going overboard.

Thought the same when I first saw it, looking again it’s a nice cardigan…just 3 sizes too big for him 😂

For me The new home shirt needs the letters RED BULL written below the emblem to give more of a symmetrical look but that would mean more use of the dreaded red colour which seems to agitate a large proportion of the fan base.

Apart from that I'm still hopeful our association with our new sponsors will reap rewards but atm everything is extremely quiet on the new signings front and this is causing supporters to fear this is going to impact negatively on our start to the new season like it did last year. We need to hit the ground running and have a settled team which if Summerville, Gnonto and Rutter stay we'll be in great shape again offensively.

Admittedly the uncertainty around those players futures and Wober and Rasmus is clouding everyone's optimism but I personally would say let's see how things stand this time next week as I'm guessing once the Euros are done and dusted there will be significant movement and clarity on the main issues concerning us all.

"Rasmus is clouding everyone's optimism" are you sure Dave?

Well I don't think he has many offers out there so again I'm thinking we may have to accept his presence regardless of the controversy surrounding his decision to not stick around last season but as Firpo has proved for the Championship he can be a useful/acceptable player for us in defence but of course he will split fans opinion of what is understandably seen as disloyalty but if we start well as a team this furore I'm sure will fade.

Wober I'm almost certain will find another european club and I'm actually now starting to think Summerville, Gnonto and Rutter will decide to stay which would really boost our chances of a successful season but if not I'm sure we'll have suitable replacements lined up.

There's also Gruev and Kamara attracting interest which again if Summerville and others remain that might encourage the rest to so it's just a matter of being a little more patient and hopefully when the season kicks off the side will be of a high enough quality to maintain a
strong automatic push for promotion even with Rasmus Kristenson plying his trade with us again.

Macca, we have to sell Summerville this window, his contract length dictates that, if we don't we will lose a packet on the value we could have realised on him. If he worth £30m with 2 years left, you might get that in January but nobody pays top dollar in January. With one year left what's he worth half that.
He will not sign an extended contract without a release clause that is less than he is actually worth.
We've got to get rid and now.

He might aswell stay and play in the Premier league the season after. Huge chance of promotion. Hopefully they see sense and stay the course. We wont stay down here for long.

Yes I understand that Dennis but as Shaun has said if him and the others help us get promoted and he seems very happy and settled then you'd think he'd then extend his contract but obviously it's a slight gamble iether way but I'd fancy our chances nonetheless if we can keep Summerville and Gnonto etc even if that means Gruev, Kamara and Meslier or Firpo are offloaded we'd still have enough funds to finance a belting team for the Championship but we'll see what happens in the coming weeks.

That to me seems very naive thinking.
Good season or bad season, promoted or not he will have one year of his contract left next summer. That brings his value down hugely. If we don't sell him then he's worth nothing to us then, he walks away for free.
If he was on three years or above, I'd agree with you but a two year contract to our best player with no prospect that he will put pen to paper and extend it is only worth having in having in as much as you much as you need to sell that guy.
To me that seems straight forward logic, he will be gone by the end of the window.
