It's worth pointing out, that the tweet he's liked was posted and liked before the information broke regarding the meeting on Monday and Middlesbrough being in pole position. 

Was it liked before the info broke?

The tweet is certainly from before that, but given Boro fans have been obsessively following him, and have been Eagle eyed with details elsewhere, I expect the like is from the last few hours and has been noticed quickly.

Not sure, I don't think you can check for certain. But he's only liked posts from around the same time as that Fulham linked post. So it wouldn't be unreasonable to suggest he liked within a few hours of it going out.

We all know it's not us, but I'm still going to be gutted at missing out on a player I'd never heard of.

Fulham seem to have a nasty habit of beating us to signings in recent years.

Joe Bryan, Mitrovic and now Muniz.

Tbf it was Villa they beat Bryan to. We were never in the race. And if they get Muniz can they just loan us Mitrovic as he would be ideal in our system.

If bausor pulls this deal of in negoation it will be the finest work he's ever done for the club. We can offer less competion for places that may swing muniz to us that the only hope we have

What annoys me is he should be looking at Fulham and thinking "hmm, I'm never gonna play with Mitrovic there"

and it will probably be the only thing.

It's worrying now like we need two wingers and two strikers for the upcoming season.

We agreed a fee for Joe Bryan, as did Villa, he decided to go to Villa instead, then Fulham came in at the last minute to beat us both to him.

Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him.

We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.

He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England. 

He won't have a clue though.

What will happen is;

Muniz will go to Athletico

We will bid for Lazaro

We will agree a deal for Lazaro 

Fulham will bid for lazaro

We will buy Smith from Rotherham

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
