Newcastle fans here in the Tavern have been weighing up their striker options all day…
It’s been a fantastic start to the season for the Toon Army as they find themselves in 9th place after taking a dip into the top half of the Premier League table.
Of late, the Magpies have had one struggle, and that has been to find a striker who can produce goals on a regular basis. After all, only 2 of the 7 goals scored so far this season coming from a forward.
This was something that’s hugely important in improving if the Tyneside club are going to progress this season under Rafa Benitez because, as they say, goals win you games.
The landlord here decided to open up a full debate to the Newcastle fans as opinions flew back and forth as to whether they’d prefer to line up with Aleksandar Mitrovic or Joselu at the point of their attack. With the results filtering in, it’s fair to say that there was only one winner, as the Serbian attracted a massive 71% of support as he looks to push his way into the side.
The 23-year-old international was away on international duty this past week as he played in a 1-0 win at home to Georgia of which he impressed for the side, despite the fact he’s always had to wait for his chance under Benitez.
So, things are starting to look up for the striker as he gets the all-important fans’ support.
So as the Premier League gets back underway, what’re your thoughts Newcastle fans?
