Hmmm, well on the Brazilian attacking tweet which we were told that both names featured on, there was Rodrygo and  Kaio Jorge.

I’m 100% sure that these must be the targets.

Rodrygo plays for Real Madrid and kaio Jorge is in talks with Juventus

It's just PR talk. Bigging him up. Means nothing.

Agreed ..  he also compared Paddy to Beckenbauer..  but didn't specify whether it was the 25 year old or 75 year old version

I agree it’s PR talk. But Warnock paints the picture of talking to fans and be truthful. I am just questioning the choice of words.

It does make you question what does mean something when it comes out of his mouth, though. Warnock didn't just lie on that occasion, he's the one who pointed out he lied by trying to indicate Akpom's failure at this club is not down to him but to a failed process he could never have succeeded within. It's no better than Pulis saying he believes finishing 7th was more impressive than 5th the season before. Both trying to absolve themselves of blame for a failure.

As we should..  I can see his thinking that he doesn't really want to say, he was sixth on a list of five ..  he probably hoped it would give the lad a boost but sometimes things just don't work out

Also......to remind everyone.

"He's been my number one choice. I've wanted him for a long time. I'd like to give a big thanks to Neil Bausor for getting it done. Warnock on Akpom

I think he might have fibbed given Kieffer Moore was 😉

@wilsoncgp makes my point much better.  I get its PR but by later saying it was recruitment team etc it makes whatever he says no less believable.  I don't for a second expect him to say he was 5th on the list.  But all he needed to say was - the recruitment team have worked hard and found a former Arsenal player who has been recently playing in the Champions League who I think can come in and do a job for us and improve us.

Strangely quiet on the Muniz front considering the past two nights it’s been all go

It's still early. The initial story broke at like 1am and there was updates at 11.30pm a few nights ago.

I think the warnock comment was most likely a dig aimed at bausor like an ‘inside joke’ kind of thing. When you see it now it’s dripping in sarcasm.

    • It's an abandoned proposal from the early 2010s, sadly.
    • Teesside Park is over a mile from Riverside..  you would need Middlehaven (formerly Cargo Fleet)...  Metro just fancy name for local rail services 
    • Out of interest is this Tees Valley Metro for real? And if so where is the Teesside Park Station located as it must be very close to The Riverside?
