biggest failing from Team Wellington on Sunday was the BBQ - ran out of sausages BEFORE half time!!!!

  The team did go and get some more but yes  a large,  unexpectedly hungry crowd.

That may have been my fault.

Player: "What bloody game are you watching ref?"

Ref: "The one where you've had three shots and haven't hit the target."

You'd have to think Mitchell as an Aucklander, and ex Central would be in Wgtn with an eye on getting a Nix contract.

Pity didn't work for him in Europe.

Seemed to be highly rated with Bolton U23's, and had a trial at Walsall a few months back.

As per Joel Steven's recent experience, pro football can be a lot of luck.

You would think he's more likely to go down the Cam Lindsay/Luke Rowe way.

He was training with a Swedish side most recently, but their season doesn't start until April, so good way to keep match fitness up. Also guessing that he was at Central when Jose was there so could just be answering a SOS from old coach who has lost 3 significant defensive players in the last week or so

Actually not doing too badly, captain of 7th tier English side Bedworth - same level as Nik Tzanev, and one below where Brotherton was

Good point the Jose connection. Oh well he's put himself in the shop window in Wellington for a few months.

He'll find his pro football niche somewhere. Better prospect than the likes of Rowe, Luke Adams.

Stint in Serbian football, has hopefully given him a hard edge at an early age. Rudes would like that.

Based on what, exactly? A handful of appearances in Serbia second tier, where he clearly couldn't cut and was let go shortly thereafter? No first team appearances anywhere in over two years?

He never got in a first team squad at Bolton, but he was a main stay of their U23 side that won the English Professional Development League (a comp for various U23 sides) last season. When he was out injured (on his AWs debut v Canada) for a time, the Bolton U23s were struggling, him coming back from injury coincided with them going on a run to the title. Sure is only U23 football, but at that stage he was going well, and secured an off season trial at Walsall (League One). Admittedly he has been off the radar almost completely since. Injured? I have no idea.

Nick Robinson who pens Flying Kiwis and keeps a very close watch on NZ players overseas, often wrote on how well Mitchell seemed to be going at Bolton, picking up on comments from club staff etc.

From a NZ perspective, Schmid has picked him a few times now, along with Brotherton as all the senior CBs have been unavailable. But the NZF coaching staff must see something. 

I know far from a perfect science, but if Brotherton can get signed by North Carolina FC in the USL (obviously helped yes by being an ex US College player), after barely featuring for Sunderland U23s - Mitchell will find a pro niche somewhere. May well be in USL as well as a start, about 11 new teams now in the US 2nd/3rd tiers.

I'd be surprised if games weren't on My Cujoo again, they also put highlight packages up the next day as well on youtube.

Yeah it's a shame I thought he was a great player. My guess is the French lad doesn't cut the mustard or we would have seen him by now unless he's injured?
