If fit, AK47.
If not, Bobby Decordova.

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)
Mitro sat out the Cup game against Villa.

sure he will be back soon, and he has been great for us but was poor today,long before his injury.

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.

What about getting Woodrow back?  He's scored 9 goals this season.

I’m aware of that. Hardly an extended break though, is it? So your point is?

AK47, Bobby D.R., or Standfield (has no fear at this point, why not)

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.

It was a weekend break for a professional footballer, who is the top scorer in the Championship and important to FFC. What are you expecting 2 weeks on the French Riviera?

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.
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).

Stansfield up front then, unless Mitro recovers by Friday.
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!

Have a word with Mince, I understand he has taken over as Cauley´s agent and is trying to test the board here to see our reaction b4 he decides on a signing on fee, at the moment it is 10.5m, but I think that might come down a lot!

Guessing Mince gets 5% of any contract  :54:
