So Luiz with no Prem experience but La Liga experience playing against Barca, Real and Atletico is below Hourihane with no top league experience at all.....🤔🤔🤔

Footballing reasoning is strong in this one!!

He's appeared on Fantasy PL without the club even confirming he's got a WP.

Luiz passed the FA test, so he has the approval from the professional sporting organisation needed for his application. Applying for the permit itself is just a formality.

Problem with pre-season is people can hang on to their delusions for weeks on end. Reality checks coming up in T minus 11 days!

(Edit: having said that, Hourihane is 28, has 300+ professional games under his belt, and knows the club. Douglas definitely has more potential, but he's a rough diamond.)

Wot? No way, he's a one year loan, you don't expect them to have an impact at Christmas.

He has had no pre season and has never played in English league before. 

It will take time for him to to settle

Can't see that. 

I'm struggling to see him starting at spurs but he will be in there early on.

He's played in the Toulon tournement earlier in the summer, and has been keeping fit since then with his personal trainer. He shouldn't be any less ready for the coming season, than someone like Marvelous, who also won't have had much of a pre-season but has played in the Africa Cup of Nations, see also Kodjia. Might take a while to ease him into the team, but I don't think it will take five months.

I think the interesting thing is going to be where he plays in the team, many seem to presume as a DM as that's where City supposedly saw him eventually playing for them, and where he's played for Brazil, but most of his domestic experience has come playing further forward, and with us also signing Marvelous and still being linked to Phillips and Santamaria.

Did he get his work permit?

Will he be eligible to play against Spurs?

I would expect his 1st action to be Carabao Cup or if he is eligible for the EFL trophy
