Poll: Verdict Of Fans On Mitrovic Red Card


It was a huge blow to Newcastle, when seemingly out of nothing Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off after only 16 minutes on Saturday against Arsenal – and the game as a competition was over because of the referee’s actions.

aleksandar mitrovic red card

Oh no – it’s a red card

We have conducted a poll and it seems that about two fans in three think it was a poor decision by Andre Marriner.

Of course that doesn’t help us much,  as we lose another game after having a player sent off in the first half.

Here’s the results of our poll.

Should Mitrovic Have Been Sent Off For Foul On Coquelin?

    Shock result NUFC fans think NUFC player was wrongfully sent off

    115 fans think he was MOTM after 16 minutes

    Mitrovic would be voted in for the peace prize if the vote was conducted on here

    Toonbrother, time will tell. I have no particular agenda against Colo but your premonition about not winning with him in the team seems to be coming to fruition.
    Either by design or because of limitations in his movement we have to play 10 yards deeper when Colo plays, this has 3 effects:
    1) it invites the opposition onto us
    2) it restricts our attacking play
    3) it exposes Anita & Colback to increased pressure

    His actual play in the last couple of games has been decent, as i said earlier he cannot get exposed for pace when we sit deeper, additionally we have played against teams with CF’s <6 foot. Had either of these not been the case then he would have been beasted as usual.

    Said about a week ago that our best combo would be Willo & Mbemba. Hopefully they will get to play together at some point, see it being much like our previous best partnership of Willo and Mbiwa.

    typical BBC MotD -also no mention or images in today’s press of the Shaw incident.
    Oh could it be BBC comes from Manchester along with a lot of the press production.

    Anyway
    The TOON crowd were getting stick for creating a hostile atmosphere on Saturday… Bring it on – every home game – lets make it a noisy hostile atmosphere every home game starting with Watford. Been like a morgue to long

    Third time repost in 10 mins you on the triple espresso ed?Bit confused lads,
    If Olivier Kemen. Is so wanted by Lyon , Tottenham and ac Milan then why isn’t he being given a chance in our midfield ?
    Clealy the Anita colback combo is hardly pulling up trees so far so why not give him a chance from the bench instead of tiote who has been less than ordinary .
    If he is that good and we can’t find him a spot then get him out on loan to spurs and let them pay his wages and give him some premier experience nothing to loose .
    And selling a player like him for less than a million ???
    Either there is something we arn’t being told about or we value willo higher than the current French u23 captain .
    Anyone remember the screamer he banged in at the end of last season for the kids.?
    Yes sell gouff and if a decent offer came in for tiote it wouldn’t be the end of the world

    By all accounts those teams want him in their reserve team not first team, not sure we should put him in our first team just to stop him joining another reserve team after all maybe he just isn’t that good

    the red card card on Mitrovic was a matter of opinion, but which ever it was its still a nasty foul, and its not his first, so refs will be watching him.
    Had an Arsenal player fouled one of our lads the same, we’d want him sent off.

    “Hamburg are lining up former Werder Bremen midfielder Aaron Hunt as a replacement for Pierre-Michel Lasogga, who is reportedly wanted by Newcastle United.

    According to the Hamburger Morgenpost newspaper, the Magpies have made the northern Germany club an offer they cannot refuse for the 23-year-old, who was only on the bench for their defeat to Cologne at the weekend.”

    Charlie, if that’s the case, let’s give them hostile like we used to do. 🙂 We can make SJP a fortress and if other people – be they players or pundits – don’t like it, then it means we’ve got it right. Did they expect respectful applause for Marriner after his display? How many times will Mitrovic’s tackle be shown in the future, yet Shaw’s wasn’t even mentioned? For some reason we’ve become the team – and fans – the pundits hate, so let’s not disappoint them. We’re entitled to make SJP hostile if it can affect the way visiting teams play ffs, why should anybody complain about that? Instead of whining about us, they should be making an issue of all the cheating and diving that’s allowed – a flagrant abuse of the laws of football.

    Oh so the Lasogga talk is back then, how much would he cost?

    Still think Austin is the best option with Cisse being offloaded. Although Cisse might be another who benefits from Thauvin being in the side, he certainly will create a lot more than Obertan and Gouffran were!

    One fine day, as someone who attends some of our U21’s and U18’s, I can say that imo he doesn’t play for us because he’s simply not better than what we have. His first touch keeps letting him down. Don’t get me wrong, I picked him out with three others as players with the potential to make it, but despite being the French U19 captain, he’s not ready yet for the PL. Anybody buying him will be buying potential, like we bought Toney recently. Most of this is down to his agent I imagine. If he was good enough, he would be playing. It’s not as if there’s an agenda against French players at the toon! 🙂

    Lassoga seems another gamble to me, Riviere mark 2 could happen.

    We need a proven goal scorer ready for this league.

    Austin is the 1 should they use their heads and make money on Cisse.

    Geordie Mark from previous thread

    Someone in the mould of beardsley would cost 60 million nowadays and wouldn’t come to us in our current state.

    We’re missing the No 10 link man for sure but we’ll not get someone as good beard…SDJ can do that job though and i think because we’ve lost Motrovic we’ll go 4 4 1 1 with Perez up top and SDJ tucked in behind because I think Cisse will go

    Ok so if he has potential only at this stage why not get him out on loan rather than cash in for what is pretty much peanuts ? It’s not like he is massive wages as yet .
    Just have a feeling it’s more than just a greedy agent drumming up interest.
    700k is laughable when we are reported to be getting 4 mil for gouffran

    TP I agree..

    I’m hoping the scouts know something about Lasogga I don’t. Maybe one for the future?

    If Cisse leaves we have Perez and De Jong who can play up front until Mitrovic comes back. But we need a proven striker.

    Charlie, as you’ll remember no doubt, there was a time nobody liked to come to SJP because it was hostile. It gave us an edge. If there ever was a ‘twelfth man’, it was the crowd at SJP without question. It would help if we had a proper singing section again and that needs to be addressed upstairs. Once the crowd gets going there’s still nothing like it and a singing section is the catalyst for that. Maybe something that needs addressing at the next fans forum? I suspect Macca would be well in favour of it. Be as hostile as possible and if nobody else likes it – GOOD!

    If he goes out on loan we would want him starting week in week out at a decent quality league maybe no team we see as workable wants him?
    I don’t know about his agent but it seems like he wants out and has done for awhile now all in all am not that bothered of he leaves. We can’t bring through young players so it’s no real loss

    Blofal,

    Cisse will need to be replaced with a proven scorer in this league. This for the future and players with potential needs to stop I think. They are gambles.

    6 mil for Cisse is great so long as we bring in Austin and get a good 3-4 yrs out of the lad. Im still trying to get my head around why we havn’t signed him and went for Mitrovic, 20yrs old and untested with alot to learn. Huge gamble this.

    I hope it wasn’t to do with wages and we went for the cheaper option because of that. The gambles are still ongoing at the club with foreign imports on cheaper wages rather than proven Premier League players.

    There has to be a balance with our recruitment to progress.

    JIB, as McClaren has been rigid with his 4231 formation, you wouldnt see both of them on the pitch even if we did sign him.
    I would view the purchase of Lassoga in the same way i did Thauvin, waste of money for a woefully out of form player that has only ever had one good season.
    Carr seems to get off on buying players that no-one else wants, not even their current clubs in a lot of cases. Lassoga hasn’t been on the bench because of interest in him, he’s been there because he’s poor.

    One fine day, I agree he should be out on loan, but sadly I don’t get to make that decision 🙂 If it was down to me, both him and Arma would have gone out last season to gain experience. The problem right now is that we have so many midfielders that the likes of Kemen struggle to make an impact from the reserves. Sadly, some players have to move on from their parent club in order to make it and this may turn out to be the case for Kemen. Not that he’s not up to it potentially, but he’s impatient – naturally – and wants first team games now. How he’d hope to get them at Spurs or Liverpool is beyond me, but maybe abroad? Time will tell I suppose.

    The best atmosphere was before the powers that be put the singing section from the Leazes End into the Gallowgate. When both ends had singers they were able to bounce songs of each other and also try to out sing each other. and when they were on the same hymn sheet/song the noise use to veberate around the ground.

    Good idea to bring it up at the Fans Forum

    This Lasogga story could have some legs. We seem to be buying players that Carr has scouted thoroughly and he fits into that bracket.

    Cisse can score when it’s put on a plate for him but his first touch is a joke and he’s no good as a lone striker. Mc must realise that by now.

    Lasssoga looks a better player than Van Dost from what I’ve seen of him.

    I reckon he’d be an improvement to the squad but I seriously can’t see it happening, I think we’ve done all of our buying.

    I see Sheffield Wednesday have made a £10m offer for somebody, how can they afford that kind of money.

    Incidentally I see that Lua Lua is having a great spell with Chris at Brighton, another one we should have kept?

    Charlie, agreed on the leazes issue. When level 7 was in full voice it drowned out the away fans and then spread across the whole ground. The roof on level 7 also helps to capture the noise, so I’d go for that again. Shame they can’t fill level 7 with safe standing, with maybe a slight reduction in price for those offering to pump up the volume?
