Nope and with Palace signing a certain Liverpool centre half for £26 m will they still be able to afford him ?

Very good. I've tackled this one recently somewhere else.

Does that mean you would, in all honesty, put Niasse in the team before Calvert-Lewin, Ramírez, Rooney or even playing Barkley, Lookman, Klaassen, Mirallas, Rooney, Sambou, Sigurdsson out of position?

Looks like he is going so pointless saying Yes I would have him before several but not all of the players you mention. Only because we are now in dire straits with regard to reliable strikers. We have none. Koeman's worse nightmare. He will say "Well Ok...."

If he wasn't getting a game here last season with only one striker ahead of him he isn't getting one now with three. Very poor to not have got him off the wage bill on loan at the very least.

in theory, yes, but Keoman is to much of an obnoxious prick to back track on his decision.
Unless something drastic changes to his coaching and tactics over the next few weeks, it will be boring, not sure what we are doing football for the rest of the season.
i dont think i new striker would have made any difference to the above either

He must be gutted? Really? I very much doubt he is, he can just sit back and do fuck all, and rake in the £60K A FUCKING WEEK, or whatever, and see out his contract, laughing all the way to the bank for doing fuck all. Ridiculous that we STILL havent shifted him on, STILL! There are some really shit staff at EFC, maybe we should invest a week or twos of the "footballers" wages and pay some decent, intelligent staff, to help run the club. We are seriously lacking in quite a few departments.

What a mess all round, not just a Everton thing though every club has this problem. Not good enough to justify their wages and don't want to take a wage cut.
Title: Re: [News]Niasse on verge of Palace move
Post by: Marky Mark and the funky on September 01, 2017, 07:21:00 PM
Classic example of none of us knowing why the move fell through, wages is a possibility but so is it being out of his control. I agree with @nwatson (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2089) Koeman wil be too stubborn to use Niasse, especially because he did not get the new 'no. 9' striker he asked for.
Title: Re: [News]Niasse on verge of Palace move
Post by: everton1952 on September 01, 2017, 07:23:53 PM
Rather than pay him for the remaining 2 or 3 years of his contract, pay him off. I am sure he is very happy being mega rich and nothing to do.

We don't want him here long term; he'll probably be loaned out / sold in Jan so why, when he's rubbish anyway, would we want him in the team / on the bench.

He's not a target man so it's not even as though he'd be a different tactical option.

Palace couldn't agree the agent fee so it fell down in London.

Nothing to do with our staff on this one. There's plenty of reason to be pointing a finger of blame at our club at the minute - no need to add things that were out of our control.

Well, it's official, Niasse has made it into the 25 man PL squad list. Presumably that means he is now allowed a locker?

That's some about turn from Koeman. Maybe he's been leaned on from above and told to integrate him into the squad. Clearly he doesn't have to play him but at the very least he might be a useful body on the bench in a tough and busy few upcoming months.

I think it's just the fact Koeman is a massive pragmatist.

He said last year they got all the forward options they targeted so he was not needed.
This year we didn't get all our striking targets and he is a striker at the club so will be brought into the fold.

If he is shit in training he wont make the matchday squad. Simple as that.

Yeah possibly. Although we only had Lukaku and Valencia last season though, Kone wasn't used either so you could argue we actually have more forward options this season. Although we do have more games to play so that does factor into it.

He certainly avoided burning any bridges in the past.

Quote from: Oumar
Anything can change. Koeman just wants the best for himself and, in two months, if I can be the best for him, he will take me, because he doesn’t have any problem with me and I don’t have any problem with him.

You see this is what makes me think he's not genuine in integrating him back into the squad. In the Europa you may get a dead rubber game to rest all your 1st teamers but no gimme's in the league.

Exactly. The Europa is where we might be able to field him.

Maybe the squad had to be submitted earlier and we still thought he might be sold (Turkish transfer window was still open.)

Yeah, that's how I'd see it. Other than a big injury crisis I can't see him getting a game in the Premier League, if he was genuinely trying to give him a chance he'd have put him in the Europa League squad. I don't know what the limit is but Arsenal have apparently named 40 odd players for the Europa League, so one more wouldn't have made any difference to us especially as Callum Connolly who's out on loan and Barkley and Coleman who are both injured have been named.

I think he'll make the bench a few times.

It's the right decision to at least consider him, having a 13mil striker rot in the reserves doesn't help anymore.

He proved he's at least competent at this level last season and they'll be times when his pace and unpredictability could come in useful.

It's the right decision to at least consider him, having a 13mil striker rot in the reserves doesn't help anymore.

He proved he's at least competent at this level last season and they'll be times when his pace and unpredictability could come in useful.


              seeing we are still paying his wages i can`t see any harm in giving him a chance

Koeman's interview gives the lie to the perception that Koeman "treated him badly and had frozen him out". Now we know, and it looks like he may play a part for us and good luck to him. If he has any character he will take his chance.

Don't think it's character that would limit the likelihood of him taking a chance presented...

To be fair to him he was fucked off to the U23's and cracked on and scored goals.

Fucked off the Hull of all places and cracked on and scored goals.

Don't think he lacks character, I just think he's not prem standard as a footballer and it's hard to see what he's got in training where he probably stands out like a sore thumb.

And then scored 3 in the next 13 and two of those were in 9 minutes against Swansea. It's hardly a benchmark who he scored against, Jermaine Beckford's last PL goal was running the length of the pitch against Chelsea, it doesn't mean he was PL standard.

Beckford was PL standard in that he played and scored in the PL. Ditto Niasse.

They may not be the top PL standard but the fact they played and scored is enough.

And Calvert-Lewin has scored 1 in 14, but he is PL standard ?

So you're saying anyone who has played and scored in Premier League is up to standard? Beckford was never PL standard, we took a punt on a player for free because we were skint and he was about all we could get and got rid of him after a year. There will be hundreds of average players who have made fleeting appearances in the PL over the years and managed to scramble the ball over the line, it doesn't mean they were ever good enough to play at the level.

Niasse was struggling to get a game ahead of Mbokani at times, his record at Hull wasn't anything special. It probably says more about where we are with striking options that people are even trying to suggest he did well there.

If Beckford was pl standard how come no pl side came in for him when we wanted to sell?

Not even a promoted side came in for him cos they could all see he wasn't up to it

He's at least competent in the premier league and he proved that last season.

No ones saying he was great, but he did relatively well.

Well enough to have a career here? Probably not. But well enough to have a Valencia/Kone type role for us.

Wasn't a regular starter for Hull which should be a pretty good indicator of whether he's a viable PL player or not.

Wouldn't say he could do the Valencia job. I think I could have done the Kone role last year so he might be ok for that.

Yarr. Pre-spuds he said:

1) Niasse just joined first-team training the day before.
2) With the strikers last a season he did not need him.
3) No need to talk about his treatment last season anymore.
4) Sometimes you need to give a player an opportunity.
5) His attitude has been perfect.

I am not even making this up!

He also said that one of the reasons for including him in the squad is our failure to bring in another striker.
Sounds like he wasn't in his plans but circumstances have forced him to include Niasse.

Watching Niasse play, you can see why Koeman doesn't like him. His technique is poor. A few times against Chelsea U23 he was running down the line and managed to dribble the ball out of play. But he is still quite effective. He is a real nuisance to defenders with his pressing. He's got quite good reaction times and speed over a few metres, when there's a loose ball he often pounces on it first. And he also has a decent finish on him. I wouldn't want him starting, but he's not a bad option to bring on against a tired defence.

Once Sandro gets used to the pace of the Premiership and he plays in a balanced side, he will improve. 16 goals in La liga for a mid table side, ex Barcelona. I think he will be good for us in the new year

Plenty of talented players have come from Spain and just not cut it here. It's not a given he'll replicate the same form he has showed in his very short career so far. I hope he does like.
