‘Mitro’s on fire – your defence is terrified’. Aleksander Mitrovic has had a fantastic week, scoring two goals against Preston North End in two different matches. He carried on from where he left off after the 6-0 thrashing of Preston in the League Cup midweek by scoring another brace away at Deepdale yesterday to further cement Newcastle’s position on top of the English Championship.
As a result of his fine performances, someone has set up a petition on Change.org in an attempt to get the name of the Metro changed to ‘The Mitro’. Even if the petition reaches its goal of 53,100 signatures, this will obviously never happen but it made us laugh anyway. If you want to view and sign the petition, click here.
The petition was created by local comedian, Rahul Kohli after one of his jokes compared the Newcastle striker to the Metro…
“Ima start a petition to change the Metro to the Mitro. Not the fastest, prone to bouts of violence but central to what it means to be a Geordie.”
He also posted a more explicit version of the joke, which you will find on his Facebook page by clicking here.
