Title: Temp replacement for Mitro?
Post by: love4ffc on January 11, 2020, 04:52:30 PM
If Mitro is injuried and out for some time, who do you all think will take his place as Striker?

Believe AK is still dealing with a bit of knock.  Could see Ivan sitting there but he seems to have a heavy touch a lot.  Wouldn't mind seeing Bobby Reid take the spot.

Bobby can do a decent job, massive blow for us though. As we closed the gap perhaps today its blown automatic spots away this injury.

Fingers crossed that it is just a knock and Mitro will be fine and back in the front line.

He came together with an opposing player.  Instantly grabbed his ankle.  Tried to come back on the pitch but went right back to ground.  Was carried off on a stretcher. 

Sidenote - his knee was bleeding a good amount also but he was more bothered by his ankle.

I watched the game. Although Mitro was stretchered off I didn't get the impression it is a serious injury. Fingers crossed he'll be back for the Boro game on Friday xx

He went up for a header with a Hull defender and came down holding his left ankle. He lay on the turf for a while and eventually off after treatment. He came back on but immediately went down again in pain. Taken off on a stretcher. His left knee was bleeding but it appeared to be a left ankle injury.

Thanks for the update. Thought it was just the left knee at the time. Obviously if it's his ankle that is far more serious. Hopefully we'll get more news soon.

I assume that you're joking. AK, or if he's not available, Bobby R.
Title: Re: Temp replacement for Mitro?
Post by: ByTheRiver on January 11, 2020, 05:52:06 PM
Firstly, let me start by saying I think Mitro is far and away our best player and obviously a big loss (if, indeed, he is out for some time. Let’s hope not), but...

It could potentially be a blessing in disguise. He has been very isolated in recent weeks and simply cannot work without players around him. His lack of pace prevents him playing that isolated role. It’s why he couldn’t fit in Benitez’s system. Of late, it’s been similar here. At the moment, a pacier option at the head of the attack might actually suit us. Ideally Kamara to start and then Reid to push forward (or Cav).

Mitro gets a small rest that he hasn’t had for about 2 years now (playing every minute of every game for us and Serbia) and comes back fresh, eager to make amends, and into (hopefully) a more confident attacking team.




(Yes, I’m possibly clutching at straws... Let’s hope it’s not too bad. I don’t think it’s ‘bye bye autos’ though as I’ve seen on some posts on here and Twitter)

If we were more consitant in the midfield play so that they provided more goals giving a comfortable lead, then I would love to see Jay play up top.  For now I just don't think he is what we need in the starting XI for regular season matches.  Not knocking Jay, just want a bit more experience if possible.

Yes, if Stansfield is good enough for the bench then why not give him a start.
Cav. did not look good as the lone striker against Villa and Ried is not powerful enough. Lets hope by the end of the week that both Mitro and Kamara have recovered.

This is the injury that we have been dreading all season.

Post by: love4ffc on January 11, 2020, 06:59:25 PM
Agree with those who say Cav did not impress when he started at striker.  Can see him there though as that is what Parker did in the FA Cup.

Still would rather see Bobby or AK up there instead and have Jay on the bench.

Title: Re: Temp replacement for Mitro?
Post by: LittleErn on January 11, 2020, 08:15:20 PM
I thought Mitro was running down the clock at first. Especially when he came straight back on then lay down just inside the touchline, but I have to say he clearly couldn't put any weight on his ankle so I'm afraid it probably isn't good. He was given a rough time today, albeit by two big centre backs, and didn't contribute too much, but he still made room for others to play.

Why was he allowed to hobble off before getting on a stretcher? If it was that bad they would have put him on a stretcher straight away.

Hate to say it but don´t think we were in the running for automatic promotion even before Mitro´s injury.  While the top 2 are faltering Brentford (hate to say it) are playing the best football in the league and may get into the top 2 (hope not of course).

Far too young, can we sign somebody or get a more experienced striker on loan b4 Friday, if we can then that´s what Mr Khan needs to do. Every game is important and Friday we really need another 3 points!

It could be a blessing in disguise. Firstly, we are not getting automatic promotion without a radical chance, I don’t think this is the right change but who knows. Secondly, our best two chances of promotion are the playoff finals or automatic promotion next season, which are more realistic options. 

About Playoffs; We need to be good enough to make the playoffs without Mitro but if we make it, he will probably have been back a month or two so probable is hoy form.

About Next Season; this period without Mitrovoic will help us identify how and what players we need to win without Mitrovoic. We won’t have Mitro next season for some games and all of the games if he leaves either way we need to be able to win without Mitrovoic.

It's the present that counts in football.

I don't think manager and players should be thinking about next season , but concentrating on this - on getting a good result in the next game- and who knows what  will happen.

We don't even know if Mitro will be out for any length of time, but if that does occur, then we have AK and Cavaleiro, who've already played  up front, and various possible permutations of the squad, as seen v Villa, as well as the transfer window opening.
Title: Re: Temp replacement for Mitro?
Post by: Woolly Mammoth on January 12, 2020, 06:23:35 AM
Yes it is the present that is important. We need to be able to win without any player, of course when we lose a key player like Mitro it can be a blow if there is no back up or real alternative, but that would be a failure by the club for lack of foresight, although the blow can be reduced by an adequate alternative injuries permitting, it’s called vision.
I don’t think we can look towards next season until we know the outcome of this season. Of course we may have a fight on our hands to stay in top six, on the other hand we are only 7 points behind second place with 19 games and 57 points to play for. It’s a funny old game, especially in the Championship, anything can happen, any week, any game,  any scoreline, any result, we never know what is round the corner. With Middlesborough on Friday, can we forecast a scoreline that is correct, of course not it’s all guess work, that is why the next game is the most important. I am not even thinking about next season, why would I, so much can happen this season, we could end up going to Wembley twice, wouldnt that be fun. A week in football is a long time, small steps but in the right direction, providing our defence is sorted out for the rest of the season.

I agree with all of this, TRF, other than - and maybe I’m a dreamer - autos are surely not out of reach? We are only 7 points off autos now. Leeds and West Brom are no longer winning every single week. Could be turned around in as little as a week or two (with a couple of games a week most weeks).

Genuinely think we can beat any team in this league home or away. After all, we’ve beat Leeds and we’re desperately unlucky not to beat West Brom. Could go on a Liverpool-esque run of form for a few weeks... Hector slotting in and the central midfield all now being up to speed could play a big part in us winning games without playing amazingly (like yesterday).

Of course, you’re right, play offs are the more likely option (in which case Mitro should hopefully be back and have been back a while to get back up to speed), but I’m hopeful after yesterday that we won’t need play offs.

I can’t imagine Woodrow would want to come back. He wasn’t that great first time round anyway. Without knowing the extent of Mitro’s injury it’s difficult to say if we need cover. But if we were to then Glen Murray is the obvious choice. Proven and I believe available on loan.

I m sure if it had been really bad ,he wouldnt have come back on .
Fingers crossed.

Give Timmy Abraham a one game shot with the 1st team.    See what he can do.

Have you seen him plsy for U23s?? He's miles off the required standard. Taylor Crossdale more fit for purpose. However I'd go Bobby Reid up top

Lyle Taylor of Charlton Athletic is out of contract in the summer I wouldn't be at all surprised to see us linked with him this week

Any player who negotiates the tempory Riverside scaffolding while on crutches must be worth a look?

Fulham don’t want to deter Spurs, we want to push the price up and up until it’s insane. At the right price, we want to sell any player. We should be trying to get £65m for Mitro that’s the dream and he might be worth it for Spurs. Although I would settle for a lower price.

What is this dream you are talking about, is it erotic or just a nightmare. Why would you want to sell Mitro, is the club short of a bob or two, good players like Mitro score goals and get promotion, money in the bank never has scored a single goal, and where we going to find another player like Mitro who busts a gut everytime he puts on a Fulham Shirt.
When I speak to him tomorrow I shall tell him what you have said.

Fulham can only sell Mitro, if he wants to leave. If Mitro wants to leave, £65m is enough money to break the transfer record into the Championship four times. And as for "The Khans" leaving the money in the back, history shows that is something the Khans never ever do.

Rather than Mitro for 65m, I'd prefer the previous records of Neves 15.8m, Assombalonga 15m, Costa 13m and Ritchie 11m.

Simple, we want to get Spurs to offer an insane price for a championship club like £65m, so that we can buy the four or five of the best players in the championship; and so they can get into Europe. Win-Win

If Mitro is out for any period of time say 4-6 weeks then we could loko at a short term loan.

We do Have AK and Cav who can oplay through the middle.

I urge caution with Stansfield, bring him on gradually from the bench seems the best option ,like we did with Dembele to a degree. I only say this as I am remembering back to Stephen Humphrys a few years back, on this forum people were saying the same if good enough for the bench then good enough to start, when we did he didnt perform and then went backwards in his progression. Now playing for Southend Untied and really isnt performing that well by all accounts.

Lets not rush the lad ease him in and use the experience we have or get in.

Yes Fletcher is out for a while.
Unlike"some" They do not sit on their hands hoping things will be ok.
This despite having already got two other good central strikers in their squad.

Interesting that not one of those transfers is for a championship player leaving the championship and signing for a team in another league e.g. what Mitro to the prem would be
