I know that I might be on something of a crusade here to find out the truth.
But I still put myself in a situation of where there’s smoke there is fire, and if you take a look at the evidence that we have seen so far, I’ll put myself in the category of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’.
Scott Parker has given fans yet another update on the situation surrounding Aleksandar Mitrovic. He’s a very popular topic around Craven Cottage at the moment, which is somewhat understandable, when you leave someone who’s been your main goal threat for the past few seasons out of the squad, people are going to wonder what’s going on.
But speaking ahead of the game with Newcastle United, it seems as though Parker still has plans for the Serbian going forward, even if he isn’t a regular at this very moment:
On Mitrovic coming on, good to go? “I thought he did very well when he came on. He brought his quality. He’s in a good place, he’s getting up to speed. There’s no doubt, with a lot of games coming up, that he’ll be in and around it.”

Will we sell Mitrovic in January?
Now we just wait and see what the immediate future holds for Mitrovic. Peter Rutzler of The Athletic recently inferred that there’s a bit of a ticking time bomb when it comes to what the club plans to do with him.
And if he doesn’t find himself a regular in the team sooner rather than later, then we could be seeing the final days of Mitrovic at the club.
What about you? What do you make of Parker’s comments about Mitrovic?
