Afobe Out For Season (confirmed)

Recommended Posts

This is absolutely devastating, if it's true. However, we need to get behind Fam and support him now, if Afobe is out. We need to play to Fams Strengths and that's getting balls into the back post. We saw against Stoke and Hull, that he's extremely dangerous if we put it in the right area.

Don't panic. We can just sign former convenience store owner JCR from the Fewers for 300k in Jan if this happens to be true.

 

Apparently he is in talks of s contract extension with the few.

Understand your points however this is a forum to discuss anything City related! If we don’t discuss anything then what’s the OS says then how dead would this place be?

So it’s acceptable to discuss unfounded rumours about unfounded rumours?  

Personally I think that’s utterly ludicrous - as others can tell!

But just because its not on the OS, doesnt mean it hasn't happened. They dont tell us everything straight away, and word does get out, hence the unconfirmed rumour.

How would he do his ACL in training? That’s a serious injury caused by serious trauma. 

I don’t buy it. 

Quite easy really. Any serious challenge in training, landing awkwardly or shuttle runs maybe...so basically anything 😅😂.

Agree with you on the legitimacy of this rumour though, but a talking point nevertheless if we had either Afobe or Weimann out for a sustained period!

It’s nothing more that gossip! It’s wild speculation based on no evidence whatsoever. Surely only the gullible fall for this kind of imaginary conjecture?

Fine, you’ve made your point (again).....now toddle off and stop reading threads you have absolutely no interest in.

We need an "unfounded rumours" sub forum, so you don't have to go on it - like you don't with the transfer rumours one! :whistle:

An ACL can be done quite easily, a slip can cause it without too much actual physical contact with it & if I remember rightly, hasn’t Afobe had a serious knee injury before?

Why not stfu then? Yeah we know what you think and we don’t give a toss, and nor do you given your ventures to the transfer foru. See you when or if it’s confirmed; or rather not at all and you weren’t given platform for bullshit

Here we go again, let's smash Robbored and derail EVERY SINGLE thread he posts in without reason.

Well done people, fecked it for the majority as usual. :clap:

WT actual F are you doing? Look at yourselves will you and enough of this playground shit, it's getting really, really boring.

It’s not without reason though Ska. 

He is allowed to do it because he’s part of the clique. 

Last night we had an alcoholic from Sweden - part of the same clique - post overtly racist comments which were deleted (swept under the carpet). And yet accusations  remain for all to see in the  Rovers thread when it’s not on our doorstep. Then this guy, known to rile with only that intention, is allowed to continue. 

You can go too far in moderating - Sagchat, or you can go not far enough and let a place like this, which used to be a great forum in which I enjoyed participating in, going to the dregs. Because that’s where it has gone.

You once had really intellectual debate and commentary on this place. But the same perps are allowed to ruin it time and time again without any semblance of humour. And they do so deliberately; either for their own pathetic hard on, or through addictive disease - which the ‘friends’ allow him to very publicly embarrass himself rather than support. How shameful.

Certain posters are allowed to ruin as much content as they wish and to stifle as much commentary as they wish just because they are the playground milk monitor’s mate. 

The door can hit me on the way out. See you OTIB... it was once fun.

I wasn't pointing the finger at you 29AR but literally EVERY single time Robbored posts, there's a load of associated posts having a pop at him. I don't really understand this ALL the time and yes he's a WUM but it seems like every single thread he posts in, someone has a go. To those of us that just want to have a mild giggle and discuss the City and the pathetic mob in BS7, it really is very tiresome. I neither know or have ever met Robbored BTW.

You're a good poster who I regularly agree with but think of the majority that don't want to read this crap on EVERY thread eh! 👍 Maybe, if it bothers you, that's what the 'ignore' function is for? Just a suggestion my friend.

Basically the way peoples reactions to RR's posts wind you up, and you feel clutter up and derail threads is how many, many posters feel about RR posts. Its hard not to say something sometimes and he goes out of his way to wind up posters he knows he has a particular effect on and consitantly posts in threads saying how they are pointless and he has no interest in them.

It is an age thing, you seem to be repeating yourself, you have nothing to add to others discussions whilst seeming to find emojis amusing.  You’re either an 11 year old girl or a man of advancing years.

If the rumour about Afobe doing his ACL are true it is a big blow .

We do have other options but not one of his class and experience.

This could also put in jeopardy any full transfer at the end of his loan because the chances are that he would not be the same after his recovery.

 I just hope that it’s BS.

Robbored makes an excellent point that this could actually all be nonsense 😂

It is not the most reliable Twitter page. More reliable Twitter accounts or pages have not reported this have they?

If it is true then it's the worst player to get injured. I guess the one positive would be more game time for Semenyo, which may mean quicker development. And would also maybe move Janneh into fourth choice striker when he's back.

Or it might mean Szmodics gets more game time, if LJ feels he can play him off of Weimann and Palmer in behind them. Not sure that is what he will go with though. I'm not so sure of Weimann in the number 9 position. Can look great there but lacks the physical attributes that Afobe has imo.

I expect LJ probably goes mainly with Diedhiou and Weimann, which did not look good last season. But with Palmer in behind it might work better. 

Will be massive blow if true. Any other player, even Dasilva, Kalas, i still fancy our chances against most teams. Afobe's pace, power, touch, movement, finishing ability. He really has it all.

Yep. And yet when this gets pointed out, it's the people who are fed up to the back teeth with it who are the problem.

Absolutely pathetic.

Oh come on, it's a popular forum which means all types of posting from insightful analysis and comment through the bleedin' obvious to wind ups and, with this being my particular bete noir, puns.

It has always been thus, just skip the posts you don't like or if it's a particular poster put them on ignore. I only have one poster on ignore and they aren't on this thread as yet.

He’s not exactly ITK and admits he’s heard it via unsubstantiated gossip. It is pretty attention seeky of him, because he’s a well known ‘face’ on Bristol City twitter people assume he knows something. He doesn’t necessarily.

This on a twitter page of 29 followers- I hope its bullshit that the exiled robin bloke has fell for big time 

 

 

Sorry #BristolCity fans but even worse news has come out of this, Afobe has now had his loan terminated and has been sent back to #scfc to recover from his severe injury. Official confirmation to come from both clubs tomorrow.

This oddly fills me with a little more confidemce that its all a lie. The information in this makes it sound ITK but it also reeks of someone trying to make bullshit sound authentic.🤞

Yep doesn’t appear any good sources have posted it yet. Exiled Robin let his desire to have a scoop supersede the need to wait for a reputable source. Because he’s got a few followers he’s made people panic unnecessarily.

Now I’m calling bull.

- Under the terms of the loan agreement, BCFC would have no right of cancel if an injury occurred. 

- Indeed, in the case of an injury, it’s in Stokes interest for the loan agreement to remain in place - even if Afobe is injured and won’t play again this season - as then BCFC continue to pay the wages

- Back to Stoke to recover (if true) is plausible. Stoke agreeing to termination without a significant financial settlement in lieu of wages (which won’t have been agreed yet as the “injury” has just come out), seems implausible

Theres no reputable sources reporting this as yet. Whole bucketful of salt until that is the case
