What a day! On off On Off

It seems so strange that after years of cutting costs and saving money that we would be so keen to go spend a fortune on a player like Muniz.  I, like many, have got swallowed up in the excitement of it all but he’s unproven really - yes a lot of potential but a hell of a risk to spend that sort of money on.  

Still - I am a little disappointed too!

It reminds me of when Karanka came in. One minute we had no money and we’re loaning players in like Alex Nimely, then within 2 years were splashing £9m on Rhodes and paying big wages for the likes of Gaston.

Still looking at more in South America still and a Man City youngster. 
 
the last few years of cutting costs have freed up some money. Club seem to be going for it

Patrick Roberts is in City’s first team squad of 24 albeit without a number 😂😂

After not playing him I’m surprised city would want to send anyone back to Warnock!!

Whats our link to city cos there seems to be one!

Cole Palmer?  He’s on the fringes

Tbh I wouldn’t be too bothered if we got Maja instead, or as has been said there will be plenty other decent strikers in Brazil/Argentina if that’s where we’re looking.

I'd be happy with Maja too. Good age, knows the area and knows English football. Premier League experience too and would be one of the best strikers in the league.

Would he? Based on what? Genuine question. I’d still be happy enough with him though.

Been on a quick internet scouting mission on Brazil league strikers. No idea how realistic it would be but came across Yuri Alberto who would match our remit.

And in the "You learn something every day" department..  When I mentioned to my sister that Muniz was likely going to end up a Cottager, she explained that I may want to rephrase that statement due to possible misunderstandings.

Doubt it’s realistic. Looks a lot better than Muniz. He actually plays in the main league. Arsenal and Barcelona want him and he would cost 15 million too

Could always guilt trip Fulham in to sending Kebano back.

In the last year of his contract. Might need to sell for ffp. Depends if Warnock wants him though

Don't get the obsession with getting Kebano back, thought he was bang average

 

I liked him but we used him badly. He’s the type to build a team around in my opinion

I’m helplessly refreshing hoping for one more twist in the Muniz saga knowing full well he’s going to Fulham. For those that have been here long enough it’s given me real Eduardo Vargas / Vítor vibes.

    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
    • Our performances have been so bad this season that I now think Warnock leaving is the best thing all round. Our midfield hasn't been fit for purpose for most of this season as Warnock doesn't know how to get the best out of the players at his disposal. If the going gets tough then I doubt Warnock will dig his heels in to stick around for a mid-table at best kind of season, so I'm sure there's a good chance that he'll leave if there isn't an upturn in results soon. There's two more games against Sheffield United (home) and Hull City (away) before the next international break - which would be a good time to make a managerial change - so our results before then could decide whether Warnock leaves or not. Whilst Crooks has probably been our best performing central midfielder this season, I think him him being part of any three man midfield, especially with Warnock's direct tactics, massively reduces our fluidity in possession and just leads to our midfield three not functioning to anywhere near an acceptable standard. Last season we were far more fluid in possession without a unique "Warnock style" midfielder like Crooks. Something has dramatically changed in midfield from last season as we've got so much worse. I don't think the goals he has provided has been worth the negatives. Any three from Howson, Morsy, Saville and Tavernier last season performed to a far higher and consistent standard than any three this season so far. I can see the positives that Crooks adds to the team in a midfield role such as him pushing forward from midfield to be a targetman for flick-ons from Lumley's long kicks, and a very good aerial presence in both boxes in open play and set-pieces. However, aside from them, I think he really limits us as a team as the ball doesn't flow well with him in there. With three central midfielders we should be far more patient on the ball and allow our shape to open up far more with fullbacks overlapping, wide midfielder having a more infield position and midfielders playing through the thirds with quality. Instead everything in midfield is disjointed, messy and scrappy for us - with minimal quality as a unit. We've played our best football this season in the home game against Blackburn with Howson, Morsy and Tavernier in a midfield three - with Crooks playing as a targetman in strike. Kieran Scott must be tearing his hair out after watching how smoothly Norwich's midfield in their two promotion seasons move the ball around and progress it into the forward areas. Siliki and Payero both still adapting to the Championship won't help matters either. Whatever the cause is, the problem of the midfield is abundantly clear so it needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
    • No, I'm saying that there's a great deal of hypocrisy to try and stand up for the right of a person not to receive abuse when the person you're talking about is Neil Warnock. The man hands out dog's abuse every game. It's not whether he can take it or whether he deserves it, it's that if he can't then be shouldn't be throwing stones himself.
    • Are you saying warnock deserves to be called obscenities from fans of MFC? Because I don't think he does. 
    • Is this what you say to Warnock about the referee every week? Bloody hell.
