Cheers for this link it's fucking gold! I'm always asking folk on here for stats because I don't get to watch enough football outside of Everton - now I can do my own dirty work! So I compared DCL and Mitro on the above link. A couple of things really stood out to me:Mitrovic scored 11 of his goals from inside the box (6 with his head) compared to DCL's 5 (and 4 with his head). I think we need this quality in the team.For all the praises of DCL's work-rate and hold up play - Mitrovic's figures are through the roof:DCL / MitrovicPasses: 430 / 1,026Pass completion%: 61 / 72Passes forward: 118 / 212Passes backward: 94 / 339Touches: 802 / 1,684 Twice as many touches as DCL. He did play 2 more games than DCL but that's nothing over a season. I found that quite impressive, although it does look as though maybe Fulham were playing everything up to him every single time.My only thing with Mitrovic is that he doesn't really look like a footballer. He's another one like Grant Holt. Looks like a Sunday league player who turns up at the pub carpark with a hangover, stinking of booze at 9.00am and eating last night's pizza for breakfast. He just doesn't look healthy to me.
I want us to get Mitrovic, but you can't base your comparison on games, like you did. Yes Its only 2 games, but it's actually very different in minutes DCL played 1775 minutes, Mitrovic 3281. But I agree his ability in the air in both boxes would be a massive bonusSent from my CLT-L09 using NSNO Everton Forums mobile app
He scored one more headed goal than dcl with double the minutes. Is he the upgrade we need? And at a cost of what 30 mil?
But that's about delivery of crosses too, i dont think it stated headers missed? Look at the headed clearance to see how good he is in the airSent from my CLT-L09 using NSNO Everton Forums mobile app
happy with mitrovic -fits the bill here - even happier if we could tempt rondon from Newcastle?
and look at the last player we signed up who had experience at west brom - he did ok
