Be surprised if he plays any role

Exactly, cant see him getting near the bench let alone on the pitch.

It's nice that he got his chance and he took it but let's see how he gets on against decent opposition.

You just have to look at the relative performances and output of DCL in the premier league vs last nights game against a shite Sunderland side. It's all about the context.

So, Koeman bit his lip and succumbed to pressure to start Niasse.

Should we consider it a desperate failed experiment or try it again.

Let's face it, he was awful and has no idea how to play in that role.

DCL and Niasse looked good together,

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.

A part of me thinks Koeman knew Niasse wasn't good enough but decided to throw him under a bus yesterday in a no lose situation. If he bombs he doesn't need to say 'I told you so' as it'll be out there for everyone to see and if he takes his chance he gets credit for bringing him back into the fold.

He wasn't fit enough to start a game at this level and shouldn't have really. He'd have been a very useful sub if we were chasing the game in the 2nd half and needed an extra body in the box, which we were, but he was out on his feet ready to come off instead of being fresh ready to come on.

Hopefully it shuts up a few armchair 'pro' footy coaches/managers.

Probably not.
