Aleksandar Mitrovic In Training – Photos

8:09 am, Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 15 Comments

Aleksandar Mitrovic started training at Newcastle yesterday for the first time, and here are some photos of him in the Newcastle.

The 20 year-old will likely make his debut for Newcastle on Saturday against Borussia Monchengladbach at St. James’ Park- that will be worth seeing.

Good action shot of the young Serbian striker

The lad looks in good shape – and maybe he’ll have a strike partner soon – hopefully Charlie Austin.

Comments welcome.

    can’t wait to see this guy in action. i would still prefer us to partner him with Berahino than austin. just think of a front 3 of Berahino, Mitro and Rolando

    He looks really happy…. 🙁

    I don’t want him to score during pre season hopefully he will play 20 mins tonight half an hour on Saturday then against the saints start and blow them away and really catch the eye.

    I’m really glad ed labelled what was happening in the pictures, obviously, he thinks we have no clue as to what is happening, so im glad he is willing to share his great observational skills to help us understand what is happening in these specific ones. Well done Ed!! Keep up the great work. 🙂

    I agree

    Before Mitrovic came, Austin was my preferred choice but I do think Berahino offers something a little different.

    We need the sort of striker that could create something out of nothing which we don’t have. Remy did well because he could do that when the team couldn’t create chances.

    Balotelli could be that striker if he sorts himself out. He is a brilliant player that should be winning trophies left right and centre.

    Winger is bigger priority than striker for me. Provided we keep cisse. If we really are in need we can get another in January.

    Am I the only one that actually thinks he doesn’t look in great shape? Don’t know if its just the way the jumper hangs on him but i feel he looks a little like hes carrying a bit extra unwanted weight which he could possibly lose and help make him sharper.

    Talk that behranio is about to sing for the spuds within the next 7 days so yous can definitely cross that one out.

  • 9 check the toastie // Jul 29, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    The Broons – Totally agree, lad looks far from ready to go, needs to shed a few pounds for sure.

    Good to see you’ve nowt better to do than have a pop at Ed.

    Spurs are the new Vila and just because they’re in London doesn’t make them any better. Being third rate after Chelsea and Arsenal must irritate the hell out of them. Berahino and others should take a deep breath and think carefully about where they ply their trade . Maybe just maybe Newcastle is now the place to be.
    One club, one City, one Toon, one hell of an opportunity to make their mark. Fortune favours the bold.
    Must go for a lie down now as I’m coming over all emotional.

  • 12 The overrated Frenchman // Jul 29, 2015 at 9:28 AM

    I admit I didn’t think we’d get Mitrovic, but I feel absolutely sure we were never going to get Berahino. Doesn’t make much sense for him to move from a mid-table club to another which actually aspires to be mid-table. Any move he makes has to be an upwardly mobile one, logically. It’s not like we were going to blow everyone else away with a massive fee and wages is it?

  • 13 The overrated Frenchman // Jul 29, 2015 at 9:33 AM

    BTW Mitrovic looks in OK shape to me. He’s in that solidly built Viduka mould. He’s never going to look slim and lithe from what I can see, but I don’t think he needs to be.

  • 14 JP...from The Rock // Jul 29, 2015 at 9:35 AM

    I agree in that we need a winger type striker. Austin is too similar to Mitrovic in my opinion. We need a fast, mobile player that takes players on and knows how to finish.

  • 15 WLtoon // Jul 29, 2015 at 10:38 AM

    I think Mitz looks fit enough, he,ll be ready for Southampton,that will be his target.
    Still cant see the Austin thing happening, he.s too similar to Mitrovic i think we,ll spend whats left in the transfer kitty on a CB.
    Fans seem to forget that its Ashley who is still pulling the strings and a leopard never changes its spots.
    So all you bloggers who think there,s pots of money to spend on a class striker AND a decent CB will be so dissappointed.
