Isn't Maja basically a similar type of striker to Assombalonga?

Seems that way to me. I think he's a bit quicker and, hopefully, keener, but I'm not sure how good a fit he would be.

He's much quicker I would say and he's only 22 so potential for him to progress. His career stalled a little going abroad but he did okay at Fulham. Think the right team and he'll be really good especially at Championship level.

Grosicki a free still but just turned 33

Surely a few wingers caught our eye in South America other than Lazaro

I think we need a South American manger next year if we want to buy South American players that's the reason Muniz choose Fulham after talking to silva.

Silva isn't from South America.

It's more they can speak in same language Warnock couldn't offer that 

Surely he'd just speak English louder and slower?

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking.  He's a bit quicker, technique is a bit better, maybe a touch more individual skill as well but not as bulky as Assombalonga.  In build up play drops short to get the ball to feet but closer to the goal he wants to be running off the last defender onto through balls.

I’d be happy to get Maja and it’s weird to think 2 weeks ago he was linked and dismissed as ‘no chance’. Now he’s being discussed as a decent back up option haha.

It’s a wonder why are Fulham commuting a lot of money for Muniz when they could get Maja back for cheaper and less risk.

They've got a new manager, he must think he can bring on Muniz like Everton did with Richarlison

    • 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.
