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.

    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
    • No not quite I’m more the posh south Dublin accent 😃 but agreed, definitely wouldn’t say it to her face 😂
    • I think for like the final 35 minutes of the first half we were really good. Second half we tailed off a little bit, especially after we changed shape again and went back to the 3 at the back. Was speaking to a Barnsley fan on reddit about this and apparently this is a huge problem for them. Their manager refuses to adapt or make any changes to a style that clearly isn't working, they create barely anything and leak goals due to their high line. Because he spent like 70%+ at RB, where he was actually pretty good. Think he struggled during his time in CM, yet again. Whether it's at RB he can see the whole game in front of him or what but he definitely looked far more comfortable there.  Wait, really? For me, Crooks was far and away the best player on the pitch! He was absolutely top notch last night I thought.
    • After writing my original comment about terrible shooting accuracy I watched highlights of MU and Atalanta. Rashford first three shots were as bad and off target as most of ours. Fourth one was a beauty  though and scored. So perhaps the overall point is that most players/teams need to have  at least 10 or 12 attempts to score a couple of goals. (Ronaldo on the other hand had four attempts and four on target  - still “only” one goal though!
