Finally, we all get to see record-singing Kostas Mitroglou starting for Fulham today. After all the speculation that the Greece international is not yet fit enough or has not overcome his injury we finally realise that all of those rumours were completely and utterly… true.
The former Olympiakos striker had nothing good to show in today’s match against Cardiff, arguably the second worse team in the Premier League this season.
Fulham fans took it to Twitter and they are certainly not happy. Nevertheless, we should not judge the 25-year-old for just one match. He is indeed recovering from an injury and the Premier League is something completely new to him.
He did win the corner from which Fulham scored the equaliser…
Mitroglou has been hugely disappointing. Without the control at mid we’ve made him a target man and he’s simply lost or made poor decisions.

@mrwtch I hate to say it, but I’d also take off Mitroglou in about 10 if he still looks terrible.

What has Mitroglou offered this half nothing

Ahhhhhhhh c’mon boys! Mitroglou not playing well, Sidwell playing great but lack of concentration and we conceded…
