With Mitrovic doing so well for Fulham scoring 5 goals in his first 7 games for them it has brought up the argument again about why Rafa didn’t play Mitro much over the last couple of seasons.
It’s of course much easier to score in the Championship simply because the defenders are not as good in the Championship.
Just as Dwight Gayle will testify to.
So that’s one point but we still think Mitro would have put away some of the chances that Joselu has had this season.
But in a nutshell, Fulham are playing to Mitro’s strengths and that’s one big reason he’s scoring goals.
Mitro’s talents don’t show up as well in Rafa’s fast counter-attacking tactics.
Aleksandar Mitrovic – in action last night against Sheffield United – scored a brace
One thing that makes it look worse is that the striker we brought in – Islam Slimani is still injured and hasn’t played for us yet.
The positive thing for Newcastle is we should be able to get some big bucks for Mitro.
We’re sure he will still be sold by Rafa this summer.
He could also very easily have a good word Cup for Serbia since he scored the important goals for his country in qualifying.
Here are some of the tweets:
Rafa will face hard questions if Mitro helps Fulham up and #nufc go down while struggling for goals.

I’ve never understood this ‘mitrovic isn’t prem quality’ bullshit. Compare him to Roberto Firmino. Both 1st season was 15/16. Firmino played 31-7 sub apps scored 10. Mitro played 34-12 sub apps scored 9. Yes he has a temper problem, which can be sorted out. #nufc

Annoys me that a lot of people don’t think Mitro is any good because Rafa doesn’t rate him. Surely we all have the maturity and experience to develop our own opinions in life? #NUFC

TBF Mitro has shown he can score goals in the PL. Just whether he fits into Rafa’s system for #NUFC.

Mitro’s form is only good news for #NUFC.
If we stay up, we have an asset to sell who is becoming more valuable by the week, or a player in form if Rafa leaves/changes his mind.
If we’re relegated, we have a player in form who is dominating that league, or a valuable asset again. https://t.co/kw1w3WdlqG

The most important thing is Rafa hasn’t used his whole squad. He has alienated 1st team players at times this season.
Mitro was shunned, as is Mbemba, Gayle had it, Merino looks a shell, Murphy had it lately.
Rafa doesn’t do morale or positive man management does he? #nufc

The Mitro loan is working out well for all parties,before the deadline we were talking of selling him for £10m,the asking price has to be double that now. I’d tell Fulham we’d do a straight swap for Tom Cairney or no deal! #NUFC #Fulham
