Publication to Premier League: Bournemouthian Mistaken for AFC Bournemouth by Foreign Press
Who knew that George Wright and his stellar team of journalists could lead us from the revived publication, broadcasting the latest news from around our hallowed corridors, to the Premier League?
Last night, The Bournemouthian was mistaken for local Premier League club AFC Bournemouth by Polish sports news provider FutbolNews, in a Facebook post which gives us far too much glory than we deserve. The post, which was published immediately after AFC Bournemouth’s 7th game without a win in all competitions, was left unnoticed for a very short period – fortunately just long enough for The Bournemouthian (and our press aficionados) to record the incident. With this kind of pace, we would have surely won the game. Man City, who are they? EXACTLY.
The mistake has since been corrected, much to our disappointment. The post has been changed from “The Bournemouthian 0-2 Manchester City” to “AFC Bournemouth 0-2 Manchester City”. If Benik Afobe can take home £27,000 a week, surely we’d be able to afford to print this on paper?
