Great propaganda from the club, though.

Doesn't even make sense as a concept, despite your statement clearly being daft.

Failing to sign a player is not good propaganda.

Hopefully we can announce Payero tomorrow before Rotherham friendly and that will make for a more relaxed and pleasant weekend.

Just verbal as of now. No contracts signed as far as I’m aware. Still time for us to swoop in. The reverse braithwaite

Really wanted this lad, Brazilian fans seem to think he’s the real deal. Shame, but looks like we’ve gone for him as hard as we can and if he’s chose Fulham it is what it is, we all know the club we are these days. 
 

It was exciting while it lasted though, hopefully some more, not inspired at all by anyone we’ve signed so far. 
 

People saying they want Maja though, people seem to rate him based on the fact that he got picked up by a foreign team.  Think it would be a shocking signing. 
 

Andre Grey would be another Assombalonga as well, seen him mentioned a few times.

My worry is now other clubs we are negotiating with will think Oh boro have money to spend now, let’s up our value.

I think we will sign South American but not muniz

Just another reminder that if he were called Ronald Smith we'd not be bothered. Being Brazilian and having a nice name doesn't make you good.

Another case of us not having seen a player kick a football in the flesh and pre-judging their worth, even if positive instead of negative!

We are having a decent window so far and will definitely get a few more bodies in.

Don't think it's got anything to do with him moving to a foreign team. There was lots of interest in him and we wanted him before. He was good at Sunderland and had they been able to keep him they would have been promoted.

He did well at such a young age being only 19/20 years old. He's fast, direct and can finish. He's got plenty of experience now and at 22 is a good age for us to develop. Thought he did okay at Fulham in the Prem and I'd be confident he could hit 15+ at Boro.

    • 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.
