  1. Would be nice if the keeper problem ran on a bit longer but I expect Heaton will be back to haunt us...

    Hoban already injured ?

    Beggars belief.
  4. Seems so. "Sidelined" per the main bbc article on the Aberdeen page about McInnes looking to bolster the defence. :(

    Poor Tommie.
    Cursed by the football gods it seems.

    Lion taming might be less hazardous.

    I think lettuce growing would prove hazardous to Tommie.
    Poor Tom's a crock,as The Bard almost wrote!

    I remember this, wasn't this also when Bellerin was on loan and Hoban was reportedly faster than him?

    I came on here to make a joke about Hoban is probably injured, only to find out he actually is.

    Madness. The lads so fragile, a sneeze would probably blow his nose off.

  10. Out for 3 weeks with a knee injury apparently. At least he has the Aberdeen medical team looking after him so it might truly be 3 weeks rather than 3 months.

    Out long term with a shoulder injury. Poor lad might as well retire

    He did manage a goal last week.

    Good article that. Worth remembering how good Tommie H was as an 18 year old amongst all the hype about Wilmot.

    Injuries have probably brought his time here to an end but it he continues starring for Aberdeen until the end of the season, I wouldn't be disappointed to see a year extension to see if there was any chance he could live up to his early promise.
  16. Would be great to see him stay fit and even better if he could still make it here.

    Never going to make it. Sorry.

    Stretchered off at Aberdeen after going down with no-one near him and screaming in agony. Have to think his body just can't handle professional football. Desperately sad.

    ****, that's horrible. Surely he has to seriously think about retiring as his body cannot handle playing, which isa huge shame as the talent was and is there.

    Ridiculously unlikely with injuries, very sad

    Truly ******* horrific.

    He is truly cursed.
    Such a shame.
  24. Ligament damage according to a Dons supporting friend of mine. Career over?

    No, I think your mate's career as a human lomg-distance MRI scanner looks promising.

    Dreadful news.

    Some guys are just ‘always injured’ & maybe that’s just that.
  27. Such a shame the lad is so injury prone, it looks like it has ruined what could have been a very promising career for him.

    Poor guy, desperately sad for him. Hopefully the club will help rehabilitate him and move him into a different role if that's what he wants and his career is over.

    I think he is on a reasonable contract with his father being a financial advisor, hopefully he will be fairly secure financially, as mentioned previously I'm sure if this is the end of his playing career, maybe a coaching career beckons!

    Good luck Tommy!
  30. So sad. Such a promising start. Such a wretched end ....if this really the end.
  31. Well she is already an orthopedic surgeon and I don't think she's looking to change anytime soon - and I simply reckon that, as such, she knows more about knees than I do, so I'm quite happy to believe her diagnosis.

    Aberdeen have just released news from Tommie's scan.


    The club can this afternoon confirm Tommie Hoban suffered a cruciate injury during the match against St Mirren last weekend and will require an operation that will see him miss the remainder of the season.

    We are liaising with Watford FC, Tommie’s parent club, to plan the next steps ahead of his operation.

    Everyone at Pittodrie wishes Tommie all the very best for his recovery.

    Do we know if it's the same knee as last time?
