The “Mitrovic is a Thug” narrative being peddled is straight-up untrue (Data Inside) : Championship

    Data Website

    Recently, the media (and lots of Leeds fans) are starting to claim that Mitrovic is a danger, a thug, worse than Hitler ect. Lets look at some numbers:

    • For Fulham he has played 8,260 Minutes, has received 18 Yellow Cards, 0 Red Cards, and has served 1 one-match suspension (for 5 yellows in a season).

    • For Newcastle he played 3,868 Minutes, received 8 Yellows, 2 Reds, served 7 games suspended (across 3 incidents).

    • For Anderlecht: 7,325 Mins, 19 Yellows, 2 Reds, 4 Games suspended (3 incidents).

    • For Partizan Belgrade: 2,493 Mins, 9 Yellows, 1 Red, 4 Games suspended (2 incidents).

    • For FK Teleoptik Zemun (I dont know either): 2,224 Mins, 7 Yellows, 1 2nd Yellow into Red, 0 Straight Red.

    • Total: 24,170 Mins (268.5 Matches), 61 Yellows, 1 2nd Yellow into Red, 5 Straight Reds.

    The numbers show 67 Cards in 268.5 Matches of football, or a career average of 1 card every 4 matches. Since being at Fulham he’s at 1 every 5 matches. For someone as VITAL to Fulham’s squad as he is, and someone who plays 90 mins every game with defenders all over him (you HAVE to admit he gets pulled around more on average), its telling that his disciplinary record is quite dull.

    This whole “mItRoViC iS a ThUg” narrative needs to stop. The man is built like a brick shithouse, and is designed to shithouse, but calling him a career thug is (at best) a skewed opinion and (at worst) a flat-out lie. He started out as a loose cannon but since joining Fulham he has calmed down exponentially, both on and off the pitch (just look at his subdued celebration to our promotion).

    Was he wrong to elbow on Saturday? Yes.

    Should he get a 3 Match ban? Absolutely.

    Will he get a talking to? By Parker, no. If Slav was still here however…

    Is he really a Thug? Hell no. Not in a million years. Stop over-reacting to one incident and an idiot doing commentary. You really gonna let Steve “Wally-With-A-Brolly” McClaren tell you how to think?

    EDIT: It took less than 10 seconds for the first downvote. Jesus Christ, this sub sometimes…
