We needed someone to come on and keep hold of the ball. Niasse was not that someone. 

We had players on the pitch who could keep hold of the ball we just took them off to try and close the game down, something that Martinez and Silva were accused constantly of not doing, only it backfired dramatically.

Nevermind a locker, poor Niasse can't even keep his own thread!

No thanks. 

Certainly not. People seemed to take a disliking from him from the beginning and it only got worse from there despite him scoring some good and important goals (even after being treated like shit by t

Fuck off. The least this lad deserves after all he's been through is just a little bit of appretiation! For the limited time he's been on the pitch, he got us some pretty important points. For those keep bashing him he's not good enough, yeah tell me something I don't know. And how the fuck you judged his contribution for 5 fucking minutes yesterday in a moment when the whole team had a mental fart!? Sick of reading this kind of bullshit. Sorry for double post.

This is what I mean. I haven’t said anywhere he is good enough, he’s not.

But he doesn't deserve all the hate is getting. He isn’t the one picking himself. He didn’t sell Cenk either. And I doubt he injured Richarlison.

How to win friends and influence people ! 
Let me put it this way, loaned to Hull, option to buy not taken, Loaned to Cardiff, option to buy not taken, refuses to go to a championship team on loan this window, came on last night, had the opportunity to run at goal from centre circle, ball bounces 5 yards of him and we loose possession. Yeah he tries and does it with a smile, I would for the wages he gets, probably with same results as last night.

No one who pulls our shirt on deserves to be hated because there below the calibre we expect, he didn’t sign himself or write his own contract and I’m sure when he’s had the opportunity he’s given his best why wouldn’t he.

Well put.

However, I still believe he's good enough at this level based on his high energy, high pressing game and strength. Yes, he hasn't the finesse of a graceful footballer but then he has the necessary attributes to change a game like he done against Bournemouth.

Anyway, I'd expect Niasse to get more games for Everton. Couldn't care less what other forum members think.

He's not technically good enough for this level of football - I don't think that's open for debate really. 

Exactly what you’ve said. Great attitude and application unfortunately not up to the skill set we need. I think he’s done pretty well out of us and we got some crucial goals from here. Both need to move on one other.

He's scored 12 goals in 4 years. 4 of them for Hull. And one for us with his arse.

It is very difficult to score goals when playing for clubs fighting relegation. However, he has manage to score against Man Utd and Liverpool while playing for Hull. The Cardiff manager was full of praise for him. 

His scoring stats on goals per minute was impressive when Koeman brought him back into the team. 

 

I've seen enough of Niasse to realise he has enough attributes to play in the premiership. Any cries of lacking in ability is based on personal opinion.

It’s personal opinion after watching him show countless times that he lacks ability in an extreme way. You won’t even find his biggest “fans” saying he has ability, it’s all about his determination.

Against Newcastle he has a breakaway on with DCL supporting him, his next touch was a fucking tackle and he lost the ball. That’s a lack of a ability. Not to mention Newcastle then went down our end and scored their first.

He hasn't played at this level for a while so of course his touch isn't going to be perfect. 

A lot of Niasse's critics have a Fifa playstation approach to how a player should play. In reality it takes time for a player to warm up and adapt to the playing climate. To judge him on limited playing minutes, to me, is shocking. I rather judge him once he has played at least 6 weeks worth of games. Anything less then you are judging a rusty player.

I’m judging him on everything that he’s ever shown. The Newcastle example just sums him up to a tee.

You can keep going with this until you’re red in the face if you like.

It's not his fault he is on a big contract and has, no doubt, been advised not to move by his agent.

All that any of us can do is our best. And that is something that the lad always tries to do. The fact that he is maybe not technically good enough for us and should never have been signed is the fault of the set up that signed him, not his.

He can be very frustrating to watch but while he demonstrates the excellent attitude that most of the rest of the team have been missing, he will get no criticism from me.

No need to. The only opinion that matters is Carlo's. Big Duncan is also a fan of Niasse. He knows his game. You obviously don't.

We’ll see when it comes to renewing his contract just how much Carlo wants him. Not to mention we’re actively trying to get him out of the club. You keep telling yourself he’s decent though.

I suspect Niasse will play an active role until the end of season. What happens during the summer is anyone's guess.

I hope he does... at another club. If we can find a club the superstar deems suitable, of course. And we all know he’ll have his pick of clubs with all that talent.

In the meantime I'll be expecting more Niasse game time.

Not trying to be funny, but as the only person who wants to see him play, what have you seen in him that is more useful than DCL, Richarlison or Kean for him to warranty playing instead of one of those lads?

And, to be funny, have you ever actually seen him play? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every minute he’s played for the first team, I can promise you, he’s shite. 

Finally, Marcel Brands stood you at the AGM and said he’s trying to get rid of him.

Probably because I feel Niasse has been unfairly treated during his contract with Everton. He has already proven he can score premiership goals. His record in the 2017/18 season was a goal every 135 minutes. This season, Richarlison average a goal every 228 minutes and DCL average a goal every 149 minutes.

Perhaps you judged him on appearance similar to judging a book by its cover rather than reading the book itself. If show pony tricks are the order of the day then why aren't there a queue of premiership clubs signing up freestylers on Youtube? The reality is scoring goals is the hardest skill in football. Bolasie had lots of fancy tricks - didn't last long at Everton, did he?

Again, have you seen anything in Niasse’s game, other than stats on a screen, to suggest he should play before DCL, Richarlison or Kean?

No judging a book by its cover from me, he plays for Everton so I want him to do well. 
 

Bolasie was doing just fine until his body let him down and he never got back to that form.

Haha mate, you just brought him up as a player full of tricks who didn’t make it at Everton. Now I’ve fully lost what your point about Bolasie really was. It read to me that he was a good player but didn’t make it because Evertonians didn’t rate him.

Bolasie was a show pony who couldn't score goals. He had a handful of assists but that's it.

Yeah, so I’m not sure why you brought him into this in the first place then.
So what was your point about Bolasie and what’s it got to do with Niasse being shit? No one was saying him or anyone else is a show pony. So I’ve no idea what you’re on about.

Oumar brought a positive attitude to a team that, at the time, didn't appear to give a hoot. Despite a lack of ability, he scored goals through sheer will power and determination. It doesn't matter if some of them were ugly; they all count.

I don't blame him at all for turning down "opportunities" in lower leagues for potentially less pay. Everton signed a contract with him, and our opinion of him can't affect that. I'm looking forward to him scoring his first goal under Carlo. It won't be pretty, but it'll prove he still cares about scoring goals for this club.

Once a blue, always a blue. isn't that what we say? Then why should we criticize a player for wanting to remain a blue? I thank him for it.
