We don't need Mitrovic. We need creative players who can play in a number of positions in a front 3 and on the wing.

We're set up front. Benteke's career tells us he's a good PL forward. He's had one bad season and now has everything to prove. Wickham can score goals. He needs to prove he can come back from his injuries. Sorloth looked good in the small sample we have. Powerful, good control with the ball, scored against Chelsea. He's young and will get better, we won't see the best of him for at least 3 years. There's every chance that he could be very good.

Either way it isn't possible to rationally discount the ability of any of our forward's but they each have questions to answer with the most uncertain being Wickham.

Unfortunately though for Sorloth I suspect the post may not end up being be too wide of the mark as I have strong doubts about him from what we have seen so far. We will see in time I guess.

As for Mitrovic he has been impressive every time I have seen him play for Fulham but then it is only the Championship.
No identity crisis or attempt to be controversial. Just my suspicion that he will work out to be pony. Odd to state that then go on and say you think i might end up being right .

For what it's worth I thought he was ok at chelsea.

Its a tricky one to call Mitrovic for Palace, as we know he has struggled in the premiership with Newcastle which could be down to him not getting on with the manager and his approach. But as we have seen at Fulham its been a different story as he has found his karma, also his attitude on the pitch seems very different and has shown with his goalscoring form he is much more settled. Could that be down to the Fulham manager being more understaning to the players problems at Newcastle? so would he be what we need at Palace next season? i am unsure, as he seems to have found his peace of mind at Fulham who can now also offer him premiership football.
But this is modern football and players can be as changeable as the weather, and as we have seen with Mitrovic he can be just that.

Mitro always cut it in the Prem but it was always his attitude and relationship with managers which damaged his chances of playing.

If we sell CB for 28 and buy Mitrovic for 14 we have done well

Roy sounds like he is intersted. He looked good at Fulham, perhaps Newcastle just wasn't a good fit for him?

Did he?! I went to the second leg and Mitrovic's hold up play was one of the things that stood out in the game. Dominated Davies and Keogh physically and as well as showing his technical ability.

He certainly looks good at Championship level and I was impressed about how well he held the ball and played others into the game around him. He rarely gave the ball away. The obvious question is can he do that at Premier League level or not and I don't know the answer. My other question is re his pace. He is a big guy and doesn't appear to have a lot of pace which is typically the difference at the highest level. I choose the word 'appear' because it is more based upon watching his movement in these matches than really knowing how fast he is. He doesn't move elegantly but he nevertheless covered the ground and was where he should be. He is still developing and so I can see why we are interested.

The other question would be that Benitez is no mug and why is he willing to let him go? I certainly hope we don't get enticed enough to swap Andros for him in an effort to prise him away from them.

I suspect he will go to Fulham though won't he?

That's not true in the slightest. He was causing their defenders all sorts of problems with his hold up play. His touch let him down on the night though. Fulham would unlucky to come away from that game with nothing.
