If we’re moving on to this deal then Payero’s must be done.

I don’t want to get my hopes up too much about Muniz because if there’s teams like Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan sniffing then I’ll be amazed if we manage to sign him.

 

Athletico pulled out I think and inter are barely mentioned. Would their directors fly half way round the world and meet for hours if we didn’t have a really good chance of getting him? I understand they probably met with other European teams while they were here.

They're meeting with Fulham tomorrow, sounds like they've got sick of waiting and are probably trying to flush out a few more interested clubs.

Fulham fans seem quite confident, apparently he's already agreed terms with them and they think that because Silva brought Richarlison over from Brazil and had a bit of success with him, that will give them the edge.

I suppose if one of those is then injured, then McNair can step into that gap. But personally I'm a little sceptical of his ability to play in a back 4 and I do think we can find better for those positions. Midfield is an interesting point, Warnock has mentioned he likes the 5-2-3, which would probably see McNair deployed on the left of a back 3.

But where I see potential for thinking McNair is surplus is in the 4-3-3 (Warnock has said he likes). If that is our go to formation for the season,  judging on the line-ups last season and who we've brought in (and looking to bring in Payero), I'm not sure McNair starts in a 4-3-3.

If we go 4-3-3 I reckon we'll see Crooks effectively take up a similar role to what Saville had last season. He'll be encouraged/allowed to step up from midfield (with the ball) and press (without the ball) alongside the lone striker. Think Morsy will be a starter most games and we know Howson is one of Warnock's favourites.

With Payero coming in, Wing potentially staying (obviously he may yet leave) and a few younger lads (Malley, Hackney) around the squad, I can see why the suggestion McNair is a sellable asset comes into consideration.

I got the impression Lewis is staying when I met him last week at Tavistock As was Nathan Wood But like Dan said things could change IF Payero comes in

You reckon we'll get him?

Haven’t got a clue, just exciting g that we’re going after young prospects.

To me it looks like we’re getting the balance right with the squad.

We all know what’s going to happen though don’t we? Fulham will snatch him from under our noses and then he’ll score a hat trick against us opening day. Nailed on.

I saw it mentioned that fulham are going to come in with another bid today. Flamengo want an obligation to buy. Sounds like we are willing to do that, it just depends whether fulham are too. Muniz seems to want to work with marco Silva from fulham so you would think if the offers are the same he goes there. A journalist did mention his future should be sorted in a meeting today and at the moment we are most likely

I mean it must be pretty far on in negotiations if we’ve actually met them in person in Portugal, surely that’s a good sign. I would suspect at the moment Fulham’s wage bill is ridiculously high and maybe they don’t want to commit like you said. Here’s hoping.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
