The main reason he was boo'd was because our 27m striker was sitting on the bench whilst we were 3-0 up at home.

They boo'd Schneiderlin as well like but the main reason was the above.

If it wasn't for the forced substitutions during today's game I'm sure Cenk would have got ten of fifteen minutes today. Crowd should have realised that.

Don't buy that.

There's no reason you should need to bring a shite out of form player like Schneiderlin on at 3-0 up at home over Tosun.

It was to retain a larger share of possession to protect a much needed result. Common practice.

3-0 at home to Crystal Palace with 15 minutes to go. Morgan Schneiderlin (over Gana) is never going to be the difference between protecting that result and throwing it away..
Perhaps but confidence is low and the result is paramount. No problem with a cautious approach.

Lost 1-0 whilst he was on the pitch so it worked well.

Never looked at it like that. I'm convinced; put the new guy on because we're all giddy when it comes to new signings.

Listen you need to be a certain kind of character to make it at this club these days. The fans have always been quite vocal but they're pretty unforgiving now and if players are taking the piss, which Schneiderlin has been for the majority of his time here, then they're gonna get called out.
I don't think we're any worse than some of the crowds on the continent it just seems we're most vocal in the Premier League, but so what. We demand a certain level of effort and regardless of ability that should be a bare minimum. Niasse is one player who has it in spades and he's shown that Evertonians will forgive a lack of quality for leaving everything out on the pitch so let's not have it perceived we're a nasty bunch, we just pay our money and expect to see it returned.

No-one's made it at this club for about thirty years. To make it here you have to have a mustache and a pair of tiny shorts.
