Cheers for moving that. Somehow a 21 page thread with over 8,000 views escaped me!
Makes me sad reading that, only because I remember when we were "a top club" mid table clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City never got a look in.
He got a ban, they appealed and it was withdrawn, Niasse got a ban, we appealed but it was upheld, we did what they did, what's your point ?
I don't think he'd have made any difference today, it was much the same as against Liverpool and he was poor in that game. It's not his style and he doesn't have the ability to get the ball pumped up to him, control it for long enough for support to arrive and lay it off to get himself in the box. For all he's managed to knock in a few goals I get the impression Allardyce doesn't rate him, 45 minutes he's had under him so far. Felt sorry for Sandro and DCL in the second half, the only thing they got was a ball leathered up the park that by the time it reached them was bouncing just above head height so by the time they jumped to try and bring it down to control it they were surrounded by Chelsea players.
He wouldn't have been running at the defence though. When Sandro came on the ball was just getting lumped up like it was against Liverpool, it wouldn't have suited Niasse anymore than Sandro in my opinion. We need to have more control of a game for him to be any benefit.
Absolutely not having that DCL is better than Niasse. Niasse should be starting games
My theory is if you don’t think DCL has done a good job in a bad situation then you are very bad at understanding the footballs.
