Feel free to explain why Chelsea paid 6x more for a player with the same stats. Or why we bought Keane.

Easy.

Gana had a release clause in the event Villa was relegated, and we got him for a steal (and now making a nice profit). Chelsea preferred a more rounded player in Kante (with no release clause) who also just won the league; that doesn't make Gana a bad player. We paid for Keane what both Burnley and us deemed fair.

Still don't understand how having to break the above down for you when it's so obvious why provides any proof that neither us or PSG scouted Gana. :rolleyes:

Sorry Matt. Not sure why I'm bothering. I already know how this turns out.

typical press saying he did more in 90 minutes for PSG than he did in 3 years with us.  Glad to see he's doing well, no need to shit on everton though journos

Who's saying that? I can't find it.

Press and pundits alike said how good he was for us in recent years so I find that a bit odd.

Bid cheese Italian journo will no doubt have been an avid Everton watcher for the last three seasons....not. So it's a truly stupid thing for him to say and a bit silly to be upset by it. That aside he's suggesting that there's no "purpose and intelligence" in being a destroyer, which is equally dumb.

One deluded ignorant person doesn't equal "typical press" for me.

Idrissa Gueye (8)
The Senegal international has yet to have a bad game for PSG. That kind of consistency, especially with a new team, is unheard of! His ability to receive a pass or intercept his opponents and then quickly turn and launch the attack created numerous chances for PSG. He is extremely confident on the ball and looked completely unfazed by the raucous Galatasaray supporters. I would have liked to see him make more tackles (2), but that really goes to show how little Galatasaray created going forward.

You watched the game?

No, I’m just completely disinterested in what he’s doing or not doing, he forced his own move out of here so why would I give a shit what he’s doing now.

So why post in the thread about him? Why would you if you have no interest?

My curiosity got the better of me, but what were you trying to prove or achieve by posting that report?

Not proving anything, just highlighting what one of our ex-players is doing. We do it about many.

Not surprised in the least, he is a worldie

Rubbish when his career is over in the next few years he will not go down in the annuals as a world class player, he will fizzle out and be forgotten never to be mentioned again. 

A worldie my arse no where near.

For someone who doesn't give a shit and is completely disinterested in the subject matter you're spending quite a while commenting on it:otvwhistle:.

Think I'll go sign up on a synchronised swimming forum and tell them what a load of shit it is and how much it disinterests me:D

PSG have won eight and lost one since he came into the team; the one they lost was at home to Reims (0-2) when he was out injured, in the other eight he's played the full game every time and they've conceded a grand total of none.

We're missing him right now.

How so? He didn't add anything going forward and we've not conceded a goal through the middle in open play. Between the midfield duos there's only one silly fk given away by Delph that has led to a goal. If anything we'd be more fucked with him.

I agree. As much as I am sad to see him no longer in the team, the issues we face are not related to his departure.

Idrissa Gueye would do nothing to stop the goals conceded from corners and free kicks. We use zonal marking that the players are ill suited to perform and our opponents can capitalise on that time and again.

We are caught on the counter attack because our full backs push forward and our centre backs turn like barges and don't have the pace to recover.

Teams are encouraged to sit deep and then counter because this method of play has been proven to be successful against us. Week in week out we have the lion's share of possession, fail to score whilst we are on top and then concede a soft goal as they counter attack.

He didn't play last night (injured) and guess what? They conceded.

Let’s get things into a bit of perspective when it comes to the French league, to say it is like the Scottish league and how Celtic dominate would be an understatement, it’s a joke league dominated by one of the richest teams in the world, they dominated last season and he wasn’t there, or are we saying they are nothing without him, if not what is your point.

I've made it completely clear what my point is; just flagging up stats that people can make of what they want, not complicated;).

Oh, and two of the clean sheets were in the CL (against the minnows Real Madrid and Galatasary).

That’s fair enough I have obviously misread your post, as if you were trying to imply that since he arrived there he has turned the team into winners that don’t concede, when the reality is they have  completely Dominated in their league for years.
