As part of a team photo maybe.

At a strike force pairing they'd be the use-case go-to example of a clueless partnership.

It was abysmal.

The complete polar opposite to 'SAS' or other brilliant partnerships.

It was a botched experiment.

I agree. Second half in particular they stood yards apart with no difference in depth. We needed one to sometimes come shorter, more runs into the channels and one of them to look to go in behind. Instead we had to see Baines standing on the ball with no left winger, no movement from either forward and going back to Williams followed by groans from the crowd.

Niasse showed why he hasnt been involved, touch not good enough, strange footballing brain and lost the ball very poorly time after time. Cant fault the effort or will to be involved but the reality is what we knew already from his first spell and watching him at Hull, he isnt good enough and its only because it is desperate times in that department that he is involved.
