Afobe has no energy and is lazy.

Been lurking on this forum for a while and felt the need to respond to this post.

on a minutes-played vs goals scored basis, this season Afobe has been as successful for Wolves as Mitrovic has been for Fulham

Most people consider Mitrovic a real success for Fulham and one of the main contributors to their amazing form post-Christmas

Afobe is underrated, his performances with Bournemouth have been underwhelming, but pretty much every Bournemouth performance is underwhelming - Afobe fits much better in Wolves style of play and is an exceptional backup striker for a newly promoted side, If he is our only striker when the transfer window closes I will be concerned, but somehow I doubt that'll be the case.

Hey Neil, good post and interesting stat to be fair. And you are right when comparing records Afobe and Mitro aren't much difference, sadly this is also true in the Prem (Mitro: 65 apps 14 goals, Afobe 63 apps 10 goals) . Here in lies the problem, both are good Champ strikers who have failed to find the same form in the Prem and with both I very much doubt that will change.

Some players are just more suited to the champ, that's all (Ebanks Blake, Lewis Grabban, Jordan Rhodes etc) . As a back up he's not bad but he's not good either. Problem for me is that everyone is assuming the 'other striker' will walk in and be a 15+ goal success but what if they aren't? What if they get injured in the first league game, how confident in Benik would peeps feel then?

As I've said I trust Nuno so will go with it but for me Benik is a distinctly average Prem striker. Our coaches are good but preseason or not you can't suddenly make Afobes first touch and composure up to a Prem standard in 4 weeks (both of which have been his undoing at Bourne) . As ever I very much hope to be wrong on this one, if he does come. that's is IF he is signing mind seems to have gone a bit quiet and no contracts agreed yet. Maybe another club have tried there luck like they did with Boly, who knows?

He may have no energy and be lazy but he scored 6 goals in 16 appearances. Just imagine if he wasn't lazy and full of energy.

Shows how far we’ve come, when Benik signed from MK he was the best player we’d had for a long time, now he’s the only one some people don’t rate. remember Cav’ was pretty average at 7m in first season and Cody couldn’t hold down a place in the team, Nuno has a dream with Afobe in his team.
