Mitrovic In Newcastle Black And White Strip – Photo

6:44 pm, Monday, July 20th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 215 Comments

Here is the first photo we’ve seen of Aleksandar Mitrovic wearing the famous black and white shirt of Newcastle United, and he’s wearing it at the Hilton Hotel in Newcastle – there’s the Tyne Bridge in the background and you see the Hilton name on the window.

Thinks – wonder which hotel he’s staying at in Newcastle?

Now he mightn’t get any sleep tonight.

🙂

Now he wouldn’t be wearing this if he had failed his medical now would he.

It also looks like he likes wearing the Newcastle United shirt at his hotel – he seems to have just kept it on – brilliant!

And there’s news (a video in Serbian) from back in 2011 when he was 16 and at Partizan – he was asked what his favorite club was, and he said Partizan Belgrade of course – followed by Newcastle United in the English League.

    Does appear to me that Wally has much more influence with Mr Tubbs than King Percy did.
    (Don’t blame him I wouldn’t hace trusted King Percy with my wallet viz signing Obertron).
    Hopefully it continues for a summer spree of five players. That would then be a reasonable foundation upon which to build.
    As well as trying to introduce a new philosophy Wally and his team will have to remove traces of the previous regimes Percy and Carvers’ doctrines/1980’s coaching.
    It’s going OK at the moment -hope it continues.

    The Ritual Scuttling of Queen Cheryl of Low Heaton is part and parcel of all new signings at nufc, although i hope for her sake it wasn’t when Obertan signed.

  • 14 Spellcheck // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:01 PM

    What a great pair of signings so far for our great team. Couple of centre backs of the highest quality for sure is needed. Good to hear TFL is well enough to chat. HWTL. My expectations are increasing by the day. Roll on August 9th. You couldn’t Make it up.

    Please get rid of Obertan & Williamson. Personally I would like to see Albeid given a chance to shine in Black n White triples. In SM I trust.

  • 32 Bambams // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    Wonder when the press conference will be, unless they have pre recorded one with the chosen few again !

    Actually if they continue to make significant signings I won’t be bothered if they continue with the pre recorded interviews

    Mr T
    Haven’t you driven enough bloggers away with your silly and childish name calling. Self delusion, self righteousness,elitism in seeing yourself as the blog controller.
    Your cliquishness doesn’t bother me. I wasn’t phased when you claimed Ruddy was performing Paddy Mc Ginty’s goat at the Theatre Royal. Oh, he is!

  • 35 NotAGhostToon // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:19 PM

    BandB you lost me a little in the last sentence. There’s a limit, I don’t expect people to look at rubbish and see diamonds. I also don’t expect people to jump on the I love ashley bus. However highlighting past crap doesn’t appear to help anything particularly when our wishes last year seem to be being answered one by one. Still a long way to go but I’m sure even you hope I’m right!

  • 36 croftus5678 // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:22 PM

  • 37 Bobbybee // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:22 PM

    We’ll never sign Wijnaldum. No chance of us paying that for Mitrovic. We need defenders… GTF IN!!! Time to enjoy the coming season. Please, less of the negativity in future. We wanted a team that tries and Macca’s putting it together. In fact, he may well be putting a team that wins something. This is all we asked for, right? Let’s get SJP back to the place teams were scared to visit and do our bit to back the team to the hilt.

  • 38 BandB // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:23 PM

    Of course I hope you are right.
    I have hoped hundreds of bloggers would be right and “I told you so” me until the day I die.
    I won’t be reading. I will be watching the football at SJP
    They just never have been …to date.

  • 40 croftus5678 // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:26 PM

    with wij/mit and chancel as minimum amount of signings the club has earnt my respect and have shown ambition !

    they still need to make up for all the poor footy and embarasment over the past years though through mistake after mistake but this season i’ll be smiling for the first few games unless the new signings dont turn out as good as we expect.

  • 41 optimistic prime // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:30 PM

    Let’s start a conspiracy theory.

    I think TFL is fibbing about being in hospital, I reckon he’s really Lee Charnley and has been to busy to post due to the Mitrovic deal.

  • 42 NotAGhostToon // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:30 PM

    BandB I do have a fear that we will see this lot bought in and nothing much more for a few years and then slowly sell this lot which would be a direct repeat. It just seems to be overwhelmingly going in the right direction right now.

    Ps I’ll never tell you ‘I told you so’ because as soon as I do it will give you permission to do the same when it inevitably goes the other way!

  • 43 Belfast // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:32 PM

    Is the Serbian bloke about to do the moonwalk?

  • 44 BandB // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:36 PM

    NAGT

    What purpose would me “I told you so-ing” people serve?

    It is faintly pathetic.

    A good guide on the blog is that most of those who have not indulged in “I told you so” antics still have the same blog names they have had for years.

  • 45 carl // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:36 PM

    NotAGT
    I have already stated the same point. It frequently seems that many in fact don’t hope your right. We have got to move on. Long way to go and nobody is lauding any achievements just yet but we’ve made progress in the transfer market and got shot of the incompetent Carver.

  • 46 lesh // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:37 PM

    He’s obviously been given an (undersize) shirt to pose for a pic for an hotel guest.

    Why the delay in announcing Mitrovic’s signing? Unless they’re signing Mbemba and want to announce them simultaneously? Just a thought.

    On another note, the Toon-Rangers link’s still going strong – Tavernier’s signed for ’em!

  • 47 ToonFromLeeds // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:37 PM

    Joking apart, this isn’t the time for ‘I told you so’ or being smug that we were right, or wrong, or whatever. This is the time for burying the hatchet and enjoying what we’ve been asking for. It’s time to try to forget the pain and move forward together, UNITED. Times are changing for the better. We’ve all suffered enough, whether we’ve carried on going or boycotted. By the time the season kicks off we’ll have a team to be proud of. The rest is just history now.

  • 49 bettyswallocks // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:37 PM

    Glass totally empty then BandB ?
    I’ve probably seen more yesterdays than you but still look forward to bright new tomorrows.
    Maybe not when it comes to Toon silverware, though … but a triumph of hope over experience can still be a glass half full

    Here softy pipe down you f??cking melt

  • 52 Bambams // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:39 PM

    It is great we have signed to very good players. It’s about time we had something to be happy about.

    I do not think this will be the end of the spending, I don’t think we will go for Austin now and I think he may have been second option.

    I do think we will bring in two CB’S and they are just as important as the two signings we have made.

    I can’t see obertan attracting a fee, possibly Marveaux would. Abeid would as would Saylor. We will be selling either this window or January for certain

    I think Mac has had a very positive input and his backroom staff look professional.

    Let’s just enjoy the moment and see who else we bring in.

  • 53 lesh // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:41 PM

    Belfast

    A moonwalk?

    No chance, he’s just heard there’s a happy hour at the Central bar and he’s legging it across there!

  • 54 Shadow_Shearer // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:42 PM

    Now he’s in the black & white shirt, & still haven’t been announced. Do we really have to wait until his pal mbemba signs to announce both at the same time. This is dragging on. He better not walk away after all this time!!

    Sounds more like he favours the black & white colours, rather than support newcastle Ed!!

  • 55 BandB // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:42 PM

    I suggested we would sign two £12m pound players this summer.
    Two six million pound ones.
    And a couple for the future.
    Around £40m. Before Ashley opened his gob.
    Has that been exceeded?
    It’s on the record, and never contradicted.

  • 56 lesh // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:43 PM

    Why’s everyone arguing?

    We should be jumping with joy at the prospects for this window – not bitching about who said what, when and to whom.

  • 57 Belfast // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:45 PM

    Who’s softy Remyd?

  • 58 magpiesi // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:45 PM

    I think the rangers scenario changed Ashley he thought he could run two clubs nice and easy until the take over at rangers. He still has a little hold of Thier merch income.

    He did say he would contine to fund nufc until the end of next season when all the sack pardew.com was about he went.

    Ashley has been stewing on his next move for 5 months then decides last day to give the interview wanting fan support to stay up we did he knows the tv money increases next year so wants to protect it.

    I don’t think pardew would have left if he knew there was around £50m to spend in summer.

  • 59 Cool Hand Luke // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:46 PM

  • 69 firebug666 // Jul 20, 2015 at 7:53 PM

    For me my relationship with the club is severely damaged,but not irreparable. However it will take a lot more than a couple of signings to turn my head.

    I will want to see the team trying to, if not winning every game, I want to get through a January transfer window without losing our best player to the bench of bigger teams, but most of all I want the soul and passion returned to the club.

    Ashley destroyed the club to benefit his SD tat shop, and still fleeces the club to that aim. He is a parasite and he almost sucked the club dry, So now he is breathing a little life back into it, and it’s not for his love of the fans, more than likely it’s to keep his SD feeding of it.

    What use is it just to pretend something? At the end of the day, is it not best that people just be themselves and say what it is they think? Be that positive, negative or indifferent?

  • 108 nightfa11 // Jul 20, 2015 at 8:15 PM

    Good signings so far..Now..Mbemba/Abdennour & berahino.. Thats bare minimum.. Would like both defenders, but..we’ll see..

    As for austin.. I just cant see mitro and austin play together.. So spending 15 Mio on austin..would much prefer forward/winger..

    Like i said..berahino would be perfect..

    Berahino mitro perez/aarons

    And if mitro gets injured, berahino can take his place as a target man..while austin..I just cant see him fit in..

    We dont have wingers to play 442..and I cant see mitro or austin play as right or left forward..

    Yeah would agree we need a Berahino-type versatile fw rather than an Austin, now that we 99% have Mitrovic. Mbemba in and another defender (will accept a utility as long as they can play CB more than competently) and i think we would be ok. Would PREFER a proper out and out beast of a CB though.

    I agree..we’ll just have to wait and see who becomes avalible.. If a big team buys a top defender and their current defender becomes avalible..Who knows..with current setup we might attract god knows who.. Too bad we couldnt get nastasic when he was avalible..But hed be stupid to sign for pardew.. Would probably play him as rb..

  • 131 GeordieTwo // Jul 20, 2015 at 8:30 PM

    A good cleansing is what we need. Right down to the scalp. Out with knackers like Obertan. Two decent CB’s, a decent winger or two, a backup for Janmaat at RB, another good striker in and Rivi out when he’s fit. Lots to do to make this a competitive club once again.

  • 132 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jul 20, 2015 at 8:30 PM

    Maybe the “Ashley In” split the space-time continuum. When BandB skipped back to this article, maybe it was in an alternative reality to this one. A one where we have spent 50 M on yaya toure and pique.

    Maybe we’ll never get to know.

    A lot more sold last year than this. The renewal period is up. I can spot an entire row of die-hards in front of me who haven’t renewed. The bar takings at the Black Bull will be down for a start :0)

    To sell the season tickets this year they may have to persuade 10,000 or so who haven’t done so in the past to invest. People don’t give up long held seats on a whim.

    anyway two decent players in – we still need CB cover and prob another striker now Riviera is out, RB cover would be good but I would reckon someone young and a more a squad player for a couple of years

  • 174 beattie25 // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:09 PM

    Whilst it is good to see such great young players signing for us, lets not get too carried away.

    Still a lot of work to be done, and we have been in similar positions before.

    Since signing Sol Campbell in 2010/11 we have signed 1 first team CB that was Pardewed.

    In that same time we have signed 6 strikers, 4 wingers, 7 CM’s and only 3 FB’s (again only first team players).

    That’s 4 defenders in total over 5 years.

    We need defence and that should be the number 1 priority and has needed to be the number 1 priority for a very long time now.

    Sign Mbemba, Abdennour a back up RB and potentially a LB and I will be overjoyed.

    For now I am very happy with the signing, but I have been hurt before.

    But I think we will only sign 1 maximum 2 more players this summer.

    As it currently stands (including Mitro) – what do people think our best team is??

  • 178 nightfa11 // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:17 PM

    i really hope we dont sign austin..hes a good player, but we dont have players to play 442 (only good winger is arrons, and hes a kid).. so we’ll probably play 433 – which would mean that either austin or mitro will play as L/RF..and that would mean “Ba” situation all over again – unhappy players and excusses such as “not good enough, not commited enough, bla bla blah”

    The ‘ told you so’ has no basis. Whoever comes out with that is an imbecile. it’s patently obvious the ‘told you so’ weasels all rolled over under the ‘proper fans’ banner, and hoped against sense that Ashley would somehow feel sorry for them and come good. Because of the fans that DIDN’T do this, Ashley was forced into action he probably would never have made to the extent he has. So the capitulating slug lovers have got their wish but not by their own efforts. It was by the efforts of those who could stand all that cowardly snivelling no longer.

    Yes the loathsome remake boydonegood claiming responsibilty for the inevitable, like promising there will be a full moon in the future, while slackness of jaw helps him overlook that it was indeed prophesied not long before his post that an imbecile ashley supporter would come along for his `victory` shout.

    Big signing. Get Mbemba through the door as well will be very good. Big fan of CBs who can play at full back. Means they are quick.

    I know this won’t happen but if we got these we would have a complete 25 man squad

    Van Dijk
    Caulker
    Byram
    Willems
    Hughes
    Pato

    Gives us
    GK: Krul, Darlow
    RB: Janmaat, Byram
    CB: Van Dijk, Lascelles
    CB: Caulker, Mbemba
    LB: Willems, Haidara
    CDM: Colback, Tiote
    CM: Sissoko, Hughes
    CAM: Wijnaldum, De Jong
    RW: Cabella, Perez
    LW: Pato, Aarons
    CF: Mitrovic, Cisse

    Extra cover
    Def: Dummett
    Mid: Anita
    Art: Riviere

    Sell the rest. If Cisse goes then replace with Bamford (either loan/transfer – he looks very decent and was left out of Chelsea squad). And we meet out quota for English players too. Also recouping the wages from the other big earners should cover the new players wages

    de jong is capable of great performances..but hes not there yet..perhaps after first 5 matches..

    lesh,

    new blog post was either:

    Ashley says ” CL champs or bust!”
    Ashley says “i’ve sold the toon!”
    Ashley says ” i’ve been wrong”

    1st two are probably the most factual…

    VanToon I hear that Tiote lad was once pretty good at that….

    I was just watching sky sports news an they showed the video of mitrovic going for his medical and they said he cost us around 3 million pounds. Hmmm wonder if that is correct.

    opponents find him annoying cos he always runs at them ..forcing them to make mistakes..not the most talented, but every team needs a runner like him..

    I think Ed went after the “Cheryl” story a bit too quickly before checking his facts.

  • 203 Tsunki // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:45 PM

    No I agree I find Colback annoying too.

  • 204 kevymartins // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:45 PM

    Someone also recorded it. The tweeted out the video there of them saying he cost us £3m

    I know it’s a real shame that Tiote is not the Tiote of 2012/2013 days – with the type of midfield and attacking players we have now – he would have been perfect to sit in front of the back 4 and let Wijnaldum, Sissoko and others gallop forward

    i think tiote is too reckless.. dribbling infront of our keeper..stupid passes, cards, etc..we need an upgrade..

  • 207 Belfast // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:51 PM

    Skunki you and Thump definitely had toon from leeds six foot under.

    And Betty and Jail think it was all a hoax.

    Diverse bunch. 🙂

    Mitrovic, mbemba, shaqiri this week! That would sell tickets

  • 209 Tsunki // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:52 PM

    VanToon, hes had his critics of late, including me. I used to like watching him terrorise the midfield, but then in later times Ive watched him time and again not make the obvious decisive pass, and then spin around in a panic until he was closed down, then collect the obligatory revenge yellow trying to get the ball back. I think his downfall was Pardew making him the lynchpin, or rather scapegoat, in his badly arranged midfield.

  • 210 VanToonMan // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:54 PM

    I agree nightfall we need an upgrade – in all honesty I think Colback is good as a backup DMF to have on the bench in case injuries etc. Anita I think should be sold – he is neither a total DMF nor an AMF.

    Sell Anita – use the money with some top up cash to buy a quality DMF who will start.

    shaquiri is good, but id prefer berahino..both can play in same position..BUT shaquiri is too small and berahino can also fill in for mitro in case he gets injured..

  • 212 Tsunki // Jul 20, 2015 at 10:56 PM

    Belfast I got as far as saying I was beginning to think the worst, no more. 🙂

    There might be interesting mileage in the conspiracy theories, but the whole heart op after the digest site goes down sounds a bit convoluted. It would be a bit weird though.

  • 213 WLtoon // Jul 20, 2015 at 11:01 PM

    I hope Mitz is,nt the new Balotelli.
    watch a full 90 mins and ule get my drift.

    TFL- I haven’t heard what happened to you but I am glad you’re here and okay.

    On the never-seemed-to end- Mitrovic saga I am really buzzing that it’s on a happy ending for the toon!

    Had serious doubts that it would ever happen and always prefered him to Austin once we were linked.

    Ha s Ashley turned a page and starting a new chapter?.. It certainly feels that way. I just love this excitement with quality signings agai, God how I’ve missed that!!

    I am going to enjoy this moment and hope it continues. Maybe Ashley has realised that apart from him wanting to keeping getting his TV money every season, that he actually does want to Win Something! Who knows but if he keeps investing in this ambitious manner I will have to believe him and forgive him.

    I never thought we would go after the quality of players we have been after, let alone actually spending in excess of 12M on a player let alone two in week!

    Let the good times roll!.. Now just get us a couple of monster defenders worth their weight in gold and we have the makings of a quality team.

    HWTL!
