Allardyce has said Tosun is struggling with the pace of the PL in training.
I know people don’t like SA but I’d like to think he’s at least capable of discerning when a player is underperforming in training.
The need to have a pop at the manager over every last thing is a bit tiresome.
Would you be starting Tosun ahead of Niasse right now?
No I wouldn't but I also wouldn't be informing the world about our desire to be mathematically safe before we used him either, which is a bit condescending. There is a third way you know and it's what good man managers use when they're trying to keep morale high and everyone onside.
He could maybe tell the world that the lad is doing great in training but Niasse is also playing well and scoring goals so he'll get his turn in due course. He could then work with him in private to bring him up to speed.
If he has genuine concerns about him maybe the best way to address those concerns is not to tell every man and his dog in public that you have them.
