Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are not looking the happiest of punters at the moment and you can understand why that is the case right now.
In a worryingly predictable turn of events, things have not gone to plan in the transfer market and you can sense the sheer disharmony at the club – particularly between manager Rafa Benitez and the club’s owner Mike Ashley.
For sure, then, the fans find themselves once again worrying about their team in the Premier League and two losses to get things going has not helped matters.
For sure, then, there is a lot of work to do on the training field and in the transfer market and – as quoted by Mark Douglas on Twitter – Thierry Henry has suggested that Aleksandar Mitrovic should be given a chance to play.
Fans, then, have reacted to this and so, with that in mind, here is the best of what has been said:
Henry also saying Rafa should give Mitro a go: “Mitrovic starts for Serbia. I saw him play against Wales and he was a handful.”

Shud play him instead of Perez. Both inconsistent finishers, but Mitrovic’s team play is far better. Both Gayle and Joselu would benefit imo

Perez brings zero to the table. He hasn’t developed. He doesn’t score enough or create chances.

I agree. Must be incredibly disheartening for Mitro when Joselu jumps pecking order. I’ll say it again, more goals than Shearer at his age

Should start regardless of his goals. Get someone up alongside him. Gayle as a lone striker won’t work unless we create lots of chances.

Thierry is correct! Rafa should and everyone knows that.

Yeah but what does he know about PL strikers? It’s not like he’s got the record for most goals for one club in the pr…

Joselu did nothing with his hold up play, Mitro doesn’t lose it.
