Think we've paid too much for fonte, but compared to last season we now have 2 strikers which have potential and offer hope.

i know it doesn't tell the whole story but just seen his goals on youtube and this man looks like he may be the missing link AND he is experienced, so hopefully that will benifit the younger players... impressive and the sort of signing i had been hoping for at last!

brilliant signing but I think we are still lacking at the back, claeraly overloaded with midfield and wingers with pace and ability but CB and left back needed......   we are managing, just but I saw we are interested in Bennett who I am assured is a good LB so hopeful of that.

Sometimes you should just enjoy the moment. Start worrying again tomorrow.

Yes, centre back and left back to beef up the defensive unit would complete the jigsaw.

He was the Braga captain aswell, and was very well regarded there. His leadership could be very important.

He is also the scorer of goals that we don't score many of, headers, 1 on 1's, 6 yard box scrambles

i am enjoying the moment, this is a genuine big deal (I think).
Can't help worrying, you can tell it's in my nature. if we really can sign a couple more of this type watch me change.... sky will be the limit!

As well as all of the above I would like to add that I am liking his humility already. He thanks his previous Club which seems to operate along the same values we embrace. Onwards.

Congratulations on joining a great club Rui  049:gif

I would suggest as a song (as i'm expecting great things)

Rui, Rui, Rui, Rui, Rui Rui ooooooohhhhhhhhhhh 





to the tune of Kaiser Chiefs' Ruby





...and possibly:
"Rui Rui, oh,oh
Gonna score a goal"

Tune of the Kingsmen's
"Louie, Louie"
