Great signing we can do the job now barring more injuries

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"

Direct free kicks too apparently

Stephjo really wasn't good enough last season but has done well so far this. Norwood takes a mean deadball so if fonte can take a free kick then we have options. He looks great in the box so wouldn't want him taking corners

Looks like a fantastic signing. We all know his brother Jose is quite the player as well.

Will Rui be able to play against Wednesday?

Extremely well spoken, I have high hopes for him - RF9 and AK47 will hopefully form a free flowing relationship upfront. Will we ever focus on playing two strikers, I don't know, but AK47 will probably be shifted to the wing with Ayite out.
