Whilst some people are happy with literally anything Boro do or at least act like they are.

Rather that than act like a I’m completely joyless with regards to anything Boro related

Is he a Brazil U21 international?  I just thought he'd played a handful of senior games so far and was regarded as a prospect.  That would change things I suppose.

my bad, the Brewster example is better

Why?  Both are extreme versions of reality.  Seems pointless to me.  If you think a signing is good then say it.  If you think a signing is bad then say it.  I'm not sure I see any benefit to thinking every signing is good or bad? 🤷‍♂️

Did we not convince Muniz enough as in the papers it's about Marco silva telephone conversation where the player was sold. We must not of given a good enough pitch.

interestingly, one thing we've all kind of overlooked in regards to Muniz - is Work Permit.

It was easy enough to work out Payero, but how does Muniz get the points?

Are there any other examples then because that looks like one really bad piece of business.  If we looked at the leading scorers in the Championship over the last say 5 years, how many of them would have cost more than we are offering here I wonder?  I haven't looked like, I was just trying to think of different names.  Obviously I know that's different because with a relatively inexperienced player then you're paying a premium for the potential.

can't really think of any, information on Brazillian youth players is hard to find.

We must know we can get it otherwise we wouldn't have taken it this far.  It's clear that we badly want this lad, we would have looked into all of that by now.

He's been in the matchday squad for Flamengo and they won their league. He qualifies really easily.

Now who's being negative 😝

I'm sure we will have.  If we've been looking at multiple South American players then we'll have gone through all of this.  Mind you, someone posted on here the other day that one of the hold ups over Payero was that Banfield wanted the deal to go through even if we didn't get a work permit for him.  So maybe you're right 🤔

Plus they are in a Band 1 Continental competition. Group stage last year, currently quarter finalists this season. He's been in a matchday squad both years. 

He could have gotten enough points (15) for a work permit without playing a single minute, purely based on Flamengo's standing.

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
