Mitrovic Scores Winner – Sunderland Finish Bottom Of The Championship

Aleksandar Mitrovic cannot stop scoring, and he scored the winner last night at Craven Cottage in Fulham’s 2-1 win over Sunderland.

That was Mitro’s 12th goal in only 16 appearances for Fulham who are still in with a chance to earn second place and automatic promotion.

They are 2 points above Cardiff City with one game to play, but the south Wales side have a game in hand.

Aleksandar Mitrovic – after scoring winner last night

That defeat now will definitely send Sunderland down to League One – and a second successive relegation as owner Ellis Short’s reign has been treacherous for the club.

And they are now 4 points behind second-bottom Burton Albion and will, therefore, finish bottom of the league – they currently have 34 points.

Last season Newcastle finished top of the Championship with 94 points.

It’s really a sad state of affairs for Sunderland AFC.

We may have a contrarian view to most  Newcastle fans, but we would much rather have Sunderland in the Premier League.

It’s good for football and very good for the region.

Sunderland fans will hope they get a new owner in who can bring them straight back up to the Championship next season.

My friend Peter, who’s over here in Raleigh, NC was born and bred in the Sunderland region, and he’s a big fan.

He’s devastated – as I would be if it was Newcastle in this situation.

And we still expect Rafa to sell Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer for something north of £20M.

    That’s two days in a row that you have called Tsunki a pr!ck. Is it because his jokes are funnier than yours. Your best effort yet was the one about stamping on your wife’s t!t’s, which lets

    I second your thoughts on Sunderland Ed. Don’t like them but not good for the region.

    I wonder if Mitro wants to come back here and if Rafa wants him back here.

    One TV pundit reckoned that to get back to the Premiership could be a 5-10 year project for them which is a long sentence.

    In the meantime Sunderland need to find their players and start some conditioning training so they can climb back up to the Championship

    No it’s because he’s a prick.

    People can be pricks for various reasons
    maybe Tsunki has a painful ailment that
    causes him grief – in which case – if he explained
    that – he’d be cut some slack.

    You however are a prick through basic stupidity
    so deserve no sympathy at all

    Well done Mitro, You have at last found your feet. Hopefully there can be a way back to SJP for you. A good goal to sink the makems for sure (dead last) I hope that the arrogant pickford was watching. that’ll teach him for being a SMB TIT trying to wind the supporters up. Should have been booked for that !
    Good win for the Toon today and keep us up there in top end of the table.

    Mitro has done really well for Fulham – obviously – but Slavisa Jokanovic must be in with a shout for Championship MoS, he joined when Fulham were in 12th and hasn’t lost for the last 23 games (ironically the last time Fulham lost was against Scumberland in December).

    Jokanovic and Mitrovic are a marriage made in heaven. £25m please, with or without them going up.

    Don’t Fulham hardly bring any away fans to the non-London games? Seem to recall they didn’t sell their allocation last time they were here (in EPL)?

    Slight cock up on that preceding post, 23 games began after the scum loss, not when Jokanovic joined, Apologies, but the sentiment is the same.
