Very pleased for the guy. There’s a certain justice in his being part of Everton’s plans long after Koeman was told to leave. 

Well put couldn’t agree more.

He’s not as bad as you make out. Easily capable of 10 goals a season, coming on from the bench 

Undoubtedly can be a menace and score some goals, but completely ruins any fluidity in the team around him. Terrible touch, can't pass or link up with other attackers, and can't really hold up the ball.

See I hear this all the time, but then i watch him and see him control a ball on his chest under pressure, get the ball under control and pass it on, your r put it away.

He has he occasional brain fart, but so did Didier Drogba... usually before he hit a 30 yard volley. 

I sometimes wander if people actually watch him or just jump on the easy bandwagon.

He’s not a starter for me  bring him on for the last 30 whether we need a goal or we are defending the lead, he’s going to work his socks off more often get a goal when needed and tie there defence down deep in their own half.

This is it. He has a role. There’s no point having two cenks! You need to be able to bring on a different tactic.

Definitely Shukes when needed he’s been a massive player for us, in my opinion it’s Cenk to start with Niasse coming on a head of DCL.

100% when he started games last year he was poor, he is by far more impressive coming off the bench and causing havoc with the defenders, due to his unpredictable play they dont know how to deal with him particularly towards the end of the game when legs are tiring. For where we are at the moment I think he's the ideal candidate for a subs role.

Keep him for the season and use him as a sub against tired legs, where he seems to cause all sorts of havoc.

Also a sufficient rotation player for the cup games to give Tosun a rest. 

He will get 10-15 goals if he stays fit all season. I'm adamant.

I can't find that emoji where the little fellow is ducking something someone has thrown at him, but this is the time to use it!

Sub at best. As has been said can cause problems when coming on from the bench, that's his best possession. 

His deficiencies are laid bare when he starts. Hopefully he’s not even a bench player when or if we sort out the squad fully (however long that takes).

He reminds me of Ronny Rosenthal the ex liverpool player (but with so much less talent) in that he is unpredictable. Coupled with his natural willingness to work and run for the team and his never say die spirit, I can understand why we kept him as an option off the bench. 

Me, personally I would rather we use DCL or sign someone else, but I trust Silva and think Niasse will only be an option from the bench, in some games, as anybody watching him start can see his failings when he starts a game.

Super- sub. Incidentally, his first touch is better than Lukaku’s, so I’m not sure what the comment about poor control. 

Well Lukaku has very poor control... I wouldn’t use Lukaku as a barometer for first touches.

It would definitely be Cenk, DCL and the Niasse to start games. You cant guarentee any type of possession with Niasse whereas Cenk and DCL can both hold up the ball well.

Yesterday Galatasaray sold Gomis to an Arabian team and Turkish newspapers reported that they are really interested to loan Niasse with a buying option at the end of the loan deal.

If Silva rates DCL then this makes sense and we should do it.  Give them a clause to buy too.  All up to him

I have no words that would do justice to how he played last night.

That missed heafer. He looked like someone playing a half time game of “ score the header”  at half time and you win a crate of Crabbies alcoholic ginger beer.

My missus who knows very little about our side and footie in general bar me screaming obscenities at the tv came on with me last night and said "who's your number 19!?"

"Niasse"

"He's crap"

Spoke volumes for me tbh, great work ethic and professional and I know it's a cup game but he's never a starter in any game, last twenty mins when legs are tired that's about it

Straq yes but Hibbo was solid in his primary role, defending; it was only when he crossed the half-way line he disintegrated.

I actually almost put that caveat in. Agreed that he was a great 1 v 1 defender and a decent defensive rightback.

Completely useless on the ball or going forward. 

Could we add Naismith to that list as well? Good workrate/positional sense that allowed him to come up with crucial goals, but really didn't show much technical ability at all?

No way.

Naismiths best asset was his technical ability. Wasn’t the strongest, quickest, or greatest finisher. But he had great technical ability and positional awereness!

I think that would be harsh on Naismith personally!

Fair play and it would appear my suggestion has been voted down and that he's a much better footballer than Straq or Oumar (And Hibbo*).

 

*Indicates acknowledgement as to Hibbo's defensive prowess but complete ineptitude in the attacking half.

I'm with you on this Shukes, also I think he was a great team player with loads of passion for the club, and also does loads of good work for less privileged kids, such as giving his used boots away to teams in his home town. ( Think it's his home town, either way a few of the prima donnas in the game should follow suit and do more IMO)

Oumar Niasse 'agreement'

Galatasaray technical boss Fatih Terim has reportedly “made frequent contact with Oumar Niasse”, according to Turkish website Fanatik.

They write: “During the last meeting, the Senegalese striker reached an agreement in principle. If the clubs agree, Niasse said: ‘I’m ready to sign’.”

I’m surprised anyone is willing to pay that. 

I have a feeling it will be a loan-to-buy option. Crystal Palace is desperate for a striker though (read a stat where three of their strikers haven't scored this season).

I thought DCL was our best goals for minutes player this season?

Goals per minute may be but not expected goals per 90 minutes. Niasse 0.75 and DCL 0.21.

Its going to be skewed this season as he has only played 47 minutes however he was 0.62 last season (DCL 0.26).

Another interesting comparison is Tosun and DCL. DCL has played around 120 mins more however Tosun is expected to score every 0.48 games and he is expected to make a pass that leads to a shot 0.86 times per 90 minutes where as DCL is 0.6.

So expected has nothing to do with actual goals? 

I bet someone actually earns a wage to work that out based on absolutely nothing. Anyone watching Niasse okay, would not expect a goal in two matches haha.

Well he scored 8 in 1075 minutes last season so thats a goal every 135 minutes and therefore better than 1 every 2 😂

That is true. Our best striker.... we would be mad to let him go haha 😉

But if we could get double figures for him, maybe we should cash in and use it.

Niasse will go to a relegation threatened team. He is capable of getting 6-8 goals which could be the difference to a team staying up. For £6-8 mill it’s not even a gamble 

Which is why he’s worth a lot more than the price being mentioned.
