Hopefully our next manager will be one that makes a difference in attracting players like Muniz 

Bring back the days of signing the likes of Kike, Stuani, etc because of Karanka's reputation in Spain 

Worked brilliantly at Birmingham

to be fair, Birmingham has been a basket case club for years. Will be interesting to see how Bowyer fares in his first full year in charge.

Yeah I can just imagine Muniz googling Fulham's squad value

All you had to say was recently relegated club with Portuguese speaking coach, the rest is just a bit weird

I don't think so at all.  I didn't say he was sat googling squad values but I would assume his team of advisors would probably look into the squads and the players etc...  I was using the market value as an obvious indicator of the quality of their squad to ours.

Bowyer did pretty well with them at the end of last season, won 5 of his 10 games

I don't get how you are assuming they are nailed on to get promoted too, they're a better side and proposition than us there is no doubting that but they are no more guaranteed to get promotion than we were after relegation. The reality is we are two second division sides who haven't been consistently in the prem for years and he will be using either one of us as a stepping stone

As much as I loved Kike, he's not exactly a star that needed much effort to get here.

He's played for two small Spanish clubs and Middlesbrough in his career.

I personally don't buy this area issue regarding signing players, it plays a part but to say it matters a lot is such a negative mindset

Club ambitions, money and manager reputation infinitely more important and you only need any 2 of them I reckon

You have to wonder whether Muniz would choose Fulham if they had Warnock and we Marco Silva? 🤔

True but I doubt we'll sign a player who had a season as good as he did before he joined us unless we had a highly respected gaffer or trebled their wages

I am not saying they are nailed on to.  Statistically they have about 1 in 3 chance I think.  

But then when you look at the clubs that have/haven't managed to they have a couple of things straight off in their favour:

1.  There has been no mass exodus of players.

2.  They have a striker in Mitrovic who has proven goals in the championship

The obvious negative is:

1. Change of manager

 

My point in terms of them going up is they are more likely than us to do so.  They are favourites in the market - which granted is again no certainty but I bet if you asked 100 people with no bias who was more likely to go up it would be pretty obvious the answer.

Is Maja actually any good? Hasn’t his only good season came in league 1? Don’t think he even scored 20 goals that year either ?

Genuine question, don’t know all that much about him bar his name.

Rotherham press on why Wing went to Sheff Wed - they simply couldn’t compete with the financial muscle at Hillsborough.

“I loved him,” Warne said. “He was the first player I tried to bring back. The lads loved him and he had a really good time here. He played really good football.

“I’d like to think it is pretty obvious why he hasn’t come back here.”

    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • 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.
