Here's what I think is going on: Fulham don't want AJ anymore, but with Bobby gone, they don't want to be seen ushering their only striker with real Premier League experience out the door at the end of the season -- especially with our Russian alleged striker only signed until May. It would make them look bad, would further highlight the decision to ditch Bobby without an incoming striker with any recent form, and might even cause people to become concerned over Fulham's future in the Premier League.
Instead, they have relied upon the propensity of sports fans to resent athletes and what they receive in pay. They are saying, "AJ, we don't want you any more; you make too much money, and you're getting older. But, to cover our asses, we're going to make you look like a greedy, ungrateful prima donna who doesn't care about the fans."
