Getting beat 4-0 at home to Fleetwood.Niasse started.
We had a chance to play Simms against grown men, instead of the usual kids he plays against in the U23s league, and we play Niasse. Absolutely clueless, a prime example of why the pathway for young players is fucked.Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
Or Simms ain't all that
Maybe not.But the point of the U23s isn't to win, it's to build players that contribute to the Everton first team. Playing Niasse, who isn't (and shouldn't be) in the first team picture, contributes nothing to the cause.Brands needs the autonomy to sack Unsworth and rebuild the academy system. His expertise matters. This is a thing that Dutch clubs tend to do better than English clubs.
Or they're keeping him fit in the hope of bring able to move him on in Jan and save the club a huge amount in wages by getting him off the books?
The club were willing to let him go on a free or a fee-free loan, with us paying some of his wages...but there were no takers. Keeping him fit wonít help get rid of him. For reference, Evans also played and heís got no future here and we wonít get a fee for him.Pretty sure Niasseís contract runs out in the summer.Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
If we can get rid in Jan it saves 6 months wages, and there'll be teams desperate for a free player in Jan. It doesn't make a lot of sense to have a player on high wages with zero chance of getting them off the books in Jan... I'd say doing that would be extremely poor business. Keep him fit, hope to get him off the books in Jan and save 6 months wages... Makes perfect sense to me
Getting rid of him makes sense but him playing for the u21s every 6 weeks isnít going to keep him fit. He was fully fit after pre-season an no-one wanted him. Anyway, heíll soon be gone. Think thatís him and Martina, Baines and a couple of others thatíll be gone by the summer.Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
Baines. I hope he stays involved with the club in some capacity.
