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.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
