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
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.
Someone once asked me, "Why Fulham?".
My response, "Well, lad, you just haven't seen the light yet"

Enjoyed that interview. Seems very honest. Not just giving cliche answers. From his clips on YouTube he does seem to be great in the box positioning wise. Something we have really missed.

Did I detect a hint of London accent in it?

I really do hope the team selection plays to that strength. We have plenty of players who can get the ball to the box but too many players like Aluko who lose their head when they get in it. Later on Piazon and this new fella could be interesting to watch.

Couldn't resist digging this post out to see the reaction when we signed him. We certainly had high hopes for Rui, still plenty of time for him to fulfill his potential. And no Fulham Stu, he can't take a pen...
