Well, it's more than just "he is in the squad"/"he has a squad number".

I feel like people havent' seen koemans interview where he specifically states niasse is now in his thinking and that you have to give people chances.
Because that was a pretty significant statement in regard to this discussion.

Yes but logic would suggest that he's still behind everyone that he put in the EL squad.

Which wouldn't be a ringing endorsement. If there'd been some sort of epiphany then he'd have picked him as an option for that too, I'd have thought.

Id guess it's just to differentiate between  last season when he was solely with the u23 squad.

It is definitely only for early round cup games (which is a worry considering how poor Koemans cup record is).

I think the idea that he has back-tracked comes from the fact last year he trained/played with the u23s (and was usefull by all accounts) and didn't have a locker.
This year he is getting a locker and training with the first team.

Whether he plays or not is beside the point - Koeman has activaly given him a chance to prove in training that he is better than Kone/Valencia

It might well be a means to an end.  Out of sight out of mind, for a £13.5 million forward, isn't wise, in any shape or form. Even if he's just sitting on the bench as an 'impact' sub. At least clubs in Russia and Turkey, clubs on the lookout for an underused striker, are going to see he's available
Steinbeck's maxim: “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”.

Throw him on against Sunderland and give him a crack, we've so many games and we're two strikers short in reality..... DCL is such an important player now & needs protecting with 3 games a week.

We have quite a few offensive kids in the U23 squad now maybe Unsie can fast track us one...

The squad still feels extremely unbalanced even compared to the likes of Leicester, we still feel 4/5 players in & out before it really takes shape for me.

I think this is the interview that you was referring to Mick, lol if not, he back tracks a lot on this interview regarding Niasse.
But ok!

Koeman is taking Everton places. Namely, the Championship.

The 13 million he cost doesn't sound very much now.

Wouldn't be atall surprised if he finishes the season our top scorer and we are all saying how mad it is that we nearly let him go.........

He did pretty well for Hull, a far inferior team. All it will take is an injury to DCL or a banging hangover for Rooney and he could be back in !

That's football!!

In the same period of time that Giroud only scored 5 goals for free scoring Arsenal.

Yep. You got me there. Thank god we didn't get that shit international, proven premiership striker now who ended up scoring 3 times as many goals in just ten appearances more.

Who needs him when we have the free scoring bumbling Niasse.

Who knows what the "bumbling Niasse" would have scored in a free scoring team given the same amount of games?

If he was any good, no doubt a free scoring top club would be busting a gut to sign him.
