Title: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: Toddacelli on December 11, 2018, 07:13:47 PM
I think Gueye has been fantastic for us.

When he came in he was exactly what we needed and what we were missing.

Having said all that - I'm finding him really frustrating this season. He seems to give possession away almost as much as he wins it back - with his age being a factor too, I'm ready to see a replacement come in for him.

Am I in the minority?

In general, he is a huge asset for away games and the big home games. Against sides who wanna nullify us then he isn't needed as he gets found out

He doesn't need replacing, we just need an alternative who is more comfortable in possession to play against those teams that sit deep and don't really try and do anything of note attacking wise

He is great at what he does, but his passing is erratic at best and he offers nothing whatsoever going forward, so in games where Gomes is nullified (aka last night), we may as well not be playing with a CM.

One of our best performers this season.

May be the case he’s not needed in every scenario though.
Title: Re: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: brap2 on December 11, 2018, 09:15:16 PM
Our goal came from him fizzing it into Walcotts feet to be fair. If we had a midfielder or a ten to do that job and be more proactive then we could afford him to do less.

Gomes willingness to take the ball in tight areas and switch it or dribble with it to evade pressure are helping, but nobody wants to play it into feet or into runs, and we can’t hold it up generally when we do anyway.

Bit embarrassing last night that our forward passing to the strikers was largely Mina or the bloody keeper to be honest.

Find it a bit odd that when we struggle to break a side down people want gueye replaced. He’s the 1 defensive minded player in our midfield and he’s doing a great job defensively. Surely we should be asking for a lot more from Walcott, Bernard and sigurdsson and expecting a quality striker signed. Gueye really isn’t the problem. He’s probably been 1 of our 3 or 4 best players this season

I don't think it's meant as particularly a criticism of Gana. He does what he does really well, as we all know. It's just whether you can afford to have a player who purely does defensive duties, and generally fucks up any attacking play, against defensive teams.

Post by: kramer0 on December 11, 2018, 09:50:25 PM
I would like to see Silva do a little more experimenting with combinations in midfield.

Gana/Gomes/Davies (for matches where we need Gomes' pressure resistance and a little more bite defensively)
Gana/Gomes/Bernard (to see how we fare with a different playmaker)
Gomes/Davies/Sigurdsson or Bernard (for when we're going to have a lot of the ball)

We're in a pretty stable position overall. A little bit of tinkering could help us develop some tactical variations for dealing with different types of matches.

Post by: Waltzer on December 11, 2018, 09:51:54 PM
He's the one player I think the opposition want on the ball, they either close him down quickly then he loses the ball or they give him enough rope and he hangs himself. Great at winning the ball back, but that's not really football

This is not off the back of last night - this is a general observation from all of his games (that I've seen).

I feel like I'm always cheering one minute when he's won the ball back and cursing him the next for when he's given possession away cheaply and allowed the opposition to bypass him and the rest of our midfield.

It'd be interesting to see if this is something of a confirmation bias I have every time it happens - or if he is genuinely giving the ball away a lot.

You'd have to separate his 5 yard passes back to the centre halves, when he's unmarked and could turn with the ball, and anytime he tries to pass the ball forwards or through tight spaces.

It's this and more of this.

Against about say ~12 teams in the league he's awesome.

Put him up against that shite Newcastle side and he's just atrocious. Silva needs to notice this and bring Davies on at the half when teams do that to us. At least he tries to make the forward pass.

I don't want him gone till we sort out the box to box mid, and even our attacking mid.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly held talks with Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye about a potential move to France.

According to French football journalist Matt Spiro, the Ligue 1 heavyweights are eyeing up a move to sign a central midfielder in January.

He reports that they have identified Liverpool’s Fabinho, Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas and Gueye as potential targets ahead of the transfer window.

The French side have been lacking in the middle of the park somewhat this season, with the bargain signing of free agent Lassana Diarra not enough to provide sufficient cover in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

You'd be better comparing Dacourt to Gomes style wise.

Another crazy comparison would be saying who is best out of Gana and Barry Horne, as they both played a more similar role.

None of those players literally where the spine behind them winning the league.

My take on this is that his stats do look very impressive on paper, and I was talking about them to a spurs fan and he said what he'd like to know is how many of those tackles won or interceptions were as a result of him giving the ball away about 5 seconds before, which I tend to agree with. There are other interesting stats which you can read into:
In 117 games he's played we've lost 51, his tackle success is 74% and his duels won are 871 compared to 601 lost. Its hard to tell in my opinion if him being top of the ranking for tackles etc is a good or bad thing or if these are just down to work rate, by rule if you do something a lot more than someone else then you should be top, or near to it, it doesn't necessarily indicate the importance of the tackle /interception and also doesn't go into those duels lost; was he hunting the ball in areas he shouldn't have been meaning he got bypassed and we got massively exposed, which has happened? As I said previously, I think he's a very good player, but I don't think he's irreplaceable

This is a good point re: the amount he has to tackle, but I think it’s wrong to look at it like how many tackles did he have to make because of his own fault, it’s more like, how many tackles does he have to make because the teams shape and the amount the opposition are allowed into his zone (deep, central) which means he has to work hard and win it back again and again, in a better side he wouldn’t need to.

But at the end of the day, he does have to for us and he is doing it at an extraordinary level according to this article, and masking the side’s deficiencies.

I don't think it's fair to call Gana a "bad" passer.

He's limited, which can cause problems when he's asked to venture into the final third or do anything more than keep it simple, but he's generally good at nailing the passes he tries. He's also much more aggressive at showing for the ball than the more technically gifted players we have in the middle (Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Gomes).

Thiago Mendes of Lille is the latest name linked as a replacement, though also suggested as an alternative target for PSG.
Title: Re: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: Silas on January 08, 2019, 12:41:41 AM
I don't think it's fair to call Gana a "bad" passer.

He's limited, which can cause problems when he's asked to venture into the final third or do anything more than keep it simple, but he's generally good at nailing the passes he tries. He's also much more aggressive at showing for the ball than the more technically gifted players we have in the middle (Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Gomes).

Yeah he's much better with the ball than he's given credit and he tries to go forward even if it is playing the simple pass
Title: Re: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: Hesmenos on January 08, 2019, 02:51:07 AM
I'm sure the original link with Gana said it was because PSG were looking for a player on the cheap so that he could fit into their FFP restrictions. If we insist on anything above 25Million they'll probably look somewhere else.

With the right scouting we can find a <£10m replacement for Gana. They might not be as good but players of his style tend to be cheaper so if we can get a Kante-like fee for him then we should be taking it all day.

And yet you love Scott Broon? I understand your point of ‘evertonians overrate effort and underrate guile’ but your actual judgement of players under that is fucking woeful man.

Also, fun fact : since 2016/17 season, Gylfi Sigurdsson has provided 0.07 more key passes per 90 than Idrissa ‘can’t pass a ball’ Gana Gueye.

I’ve contributed to the view that Gana is limited but in the same breath, he’s underrated and at times has held this side together. I hope he goes to Paris for £35m and wins titles.

Edit : p.s Gareth Barry was better than Andre Gomes.

Broony as a cult hero/player who would go through a brick wall for Celtic. As a footballing talent he's made the best of his many limitations.

But when I had my season ticket last year I watched Gana continously give the ball away.

Its telling Sigurdsson who can play a bit is getting loads of shit just like Barkley/Stones did whilst Davies, Barry and Gana got all the love in the world. This is something people are starting to say on this forum too especially in the most recent TD thread.

I think he's similar to Milner, when he's one of your own you really appreciate his consistency, professionalism, leadership and dedication, but like you said a lot of what he did goes unnoticed to those outside your club.

That's a fair point and during his career he was a great player but on the way down with us.

I liked Phil Neville but you had to respect him as he won virtually everything and was a complete winner mentality wise.

Big Gana fan who took me by surprise, but a big move to PSG only reinforces the model we seek to employ by young (for the most part) players seeing evidence of players getting massive moves to the elite clubs if they come and play out of their skin.

Of course we’d like to be able to keep the vultures at bay, but we’ve got to play the long game here.

Because he doesn't, his passing range is not 100 % but his presence in the middle of the park is missed when he's not there, people see what they want to fit their agenda and fuck all else. Simple really, Gana would run through walls to make sure he's winning the ball, he gives his all every game but because he can't ping 40 yard passes to the forward player then he's shit.... Fucking bollocks man.

Replacement or no replacement if they offer good money then take it. If we're writing this season off as a rebuilding exercise I'd rather we kept our powder dry until the summer and get our main targets at prices that work for us.

16 games left plus whatever the cup run brings. We can get by with what we have left if necessary, even if it means changing things around to bolster the middle of the park a bit more.

If the rumours are true that hes had talks with Tuchel, looking for a house in Paris etc then I think we're probably at the point of needing to negotiate the sale. Going to PSG for him would be absolutely amazing and something he warrants for years of dedication. Yes, he will be a loss for us (but not irreplaceable), but you'd have to ask where his head would be after the transfer window closes if this does fall through.

I get that hes under contract, but hes not and Evertonian, hes given his all for us and any of us in that position would want the same.

He can pass accurately.

It's the range that's lacking.
Title: Re: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: Toddacelli on January 15, 2019, 07:19:26 PM
Because he doesn't, his passing range is not 100 % but his presence in the middle of the park is missed when he's not there, people see what they want to fit their agenda and fuck all else. Simple really, Gana would run through walls to make sure he's winning the ball, he gives his all every game but because he can't ping 40 yard passes to the forward player then he's shit.... Fucking bollocks man.

I'm not trying to fit an agenda. It is a genuine observation from me (and my own limited interpretation of the game).

"Gana would run through walls to make sure he's winning the ball, he gives his all every game" - Agree 100%

I'd also add that we are far, far better with him than without him. And I love him at Everton and contrary to what some other posters seem to be saying - I think he will be very, very hard to replace. How people think we can pick a replacement up for £10M in a lower, European league - I have no idea.

But I do think he gives possession away a lot more than he should.

If you can't pass accurately you can't be good enough for this league. Running around, closing down, breaking up play is not much use if you give the ball back to the opposition. Championship is OK for him. He cost us little from a relegated club.

That's fair in terms of valuation - probably will never get more for him. However, we don't have to sell to buy anymore. I think we should only sell him if we can get a player that better fits Silva's system and improve our squad as a whole. If we can't do that then we should hold onto him until we find that player.

Yes fair point. I agree that we don't need to sell to buy. Having said that, we do have a responsibility to be a little more financially prudent than the last few seasons, if we're going to be sustainable and successful. Part of that is selling people aged 29, when you get large, profitable bids. He's a very good player with notable limitations. He's replaceable and we need to rebuild the midfield. This season is very much a transition, flux season, so it might be the right time to sell and maximise value.

I'd also put the feelers out to see if anyone wants to pay £25-30m for Gylfi, and just start the entire midfield from scratch.

I’d love it for a Chinese team to give us untold millions for Gylfi.

Title: Re: Gana Get Replaced?
Post by: Bluedylan on January 15, 2019, 08:20:26 PM
He's a really good player, and his output this season has been decent, but maybe it just doesn't work and we should accept that.

I think it was fair for Silva to try to make our midfield work with the options we have, because we do have good players and it was reasonable to try it, but the balance never seems to really work properly.

So maybe it's better looking at his team like a construction job, and maybe the best move he can make it just to rip the midfield out altogether and build it as you want it, rather than trying to refine an imperfect set-up.

The funny thing with Rom is that a lot of people spent his entire Everton career moaning at him/about him for not being better, rather than just accepting his limitations and being glad we had him, for his strengths.

Eventually we need to start to take a look at ourselves as a club and a fanbase, and wonder if there might be summat wrong with us. We slag our best players off for not being better than they are, we get on young players' backs, we get on managers backs very quickly.

I realise people might not like those sorts of comments, and the fact that I don't live in the city anymore, or go to the game every week undermines the points I'm making for some people. But still, taking my personal situation out of it, is it true?

Most of that criticism is for not actually playing like a midfielder.

He spends a lot of time chasing the ball high up the pitch, doesn't show for the ball much in possession, and doesn't play many passes. All of this while our midfield is terrible and doesn't control games.

He ultimately plays more like a forward and getting into double figures (aided by penalties) is a pretty meh return for a forward. Hence, why so many of us talk about him like he's a meh player.

Cahill was the furthest forward of a 5 man midfield which catered for that advances midfield role.

Siggy is playing that far forward in a midfield 3 which doesn't allow for it and leaves us with 2 in the middle of the park.

I really rate Siggy but how we're playing right now doesn't suit the personnel we have and it's showing in the results.

And I for one am glad ...someone is actually getting forward scoring goals ....pretty sure that's where he's being told to play ...certainly not as an out and out forward, in fact a typical AMC ...it's not Gylfi's fault nobody else is contributing assists and goals from the further midfield .

You can see the argument that having a midfielder who goalhangs is sound when he gets you 10 a year, but unfortunately leaves important gaps elsewhere, can’t you?

It’s not a case of take them 10 goals out and we’d drop positions is it, that’s what we all slagged Steve Walsh off for when he said ‘without Lukakus goals we’d be in the same place’ - it doesn’t work like that.

A team is the sum of its parts and as incredibly talented Gylfi Sigurdsson is, he apparently has to be carried tactically and that’s causing us problems.

Cahill isn't even a fair comparison because he won headers and harassed defenders in a way that actually earned the team possession in final third.

I know Sigurdsson works his socks off without the ball but it doesn't do much for us the way he's currently being deployed because he rarely wins anything high up the pitch. When you factor in the lack of touches, he's basically a passenger who contributes the odd great goal or through ball. He either has to play deeper where we can use his work rate to greater defensive effect or he needs to be dropped. We can't keep carrying him in his current role while opponents walk through our midfield and create numerical advantages against our back line every week.

Also, six open play goals really isn't that hard to replace. I bet Lookman would get that many given 1800 minutes.

I'm not saying he is a world beater by any means but he is all we have in that mould and a double figure output (by the end of the season)albeit with 2pens will be better than we had for years from the midfield .

Football doesn't work like that, adding and subtracting goals scored by individual players. Individual stats help us learn about players but success is still contextual.

Obviously, there's no way Davies would score as much as Sigurdsson. But here are some things he can help with:

- Preventing the opposition from cutting through us at will. Davies is useful defensively and with a better defense, we don't need to score as much to win.
- Providing our defenders and midfielders with another option in possession so that opponents can't take Gomes out of the game and put all of the heavy lifting on Gana, the CBs, and the fullbacks (like they have been since December). Davies is one of the best in the squad at moving without the ball and making himself available to his teammates.
- Forcing the team to play a little deeper, giving the front three more space to work. Imagine how much more effective the likes of Richarlison, Bernard, Lookman, and Walcott would be if they weren't facing packed defenses all the time. Here's where you recover those "lost" goals.

Nobody can say for sure if all of those things would happen but it would be a worthwhile experiment, at least.

Agreed re: closing down.

Would argue that Cahill's link up play and combinations are far superior to Sig's as well.

Sigurdsson's biggest asset is that he can score from anywhere within 30 yards basically consistently as anyone. This means he must be closed down and opens teams up a bit.

However, he is really not good enough at moving towards the ball and providing quick link up with the midfield get us further forward and create angles that allow for through balls.

Cahill, for all his limitations moved to the ball and played it on quickly. He had a good understanding of where his teammates where/where going and got them involved.

Perhaps being a limited player meant that he knew he had to bring the ball in and keep it moving.

We certainly lack midfield presence and are lucky that Gana covers so much ground. Think Silva will need to rework the midfield this summer to improve the balance.

No. I am trying to track back from a get rid mentality just because he annoys me so much with his bad passing. In our last game he passed straight to a Bournemouth player about 10 yards away. The reality is he would be fine if he had top players around him, and his limitations would be less problematic.  If it was true that a monster bid was coming in. then it would be good business to sell as long as a better replacement can be found.

Davies is one of the best in the squad at moving without the ball and making himself available to his teammates.

This - all day long.

I'm saying this as a big gana fan but

It's not necessarily that he's passing is inaccurate in terms of giving the ball away. For me his passing isn't quite spot on.

Quite often a player will have check his run because ganas pass was slightly behind. Also the passes aren't crisp enough. I think it's a reason we all jizzed at gomes first few games. His passing was quick and crisp and super accurate.

You see the top 3 at the moment and every pass is spot on. Bang exactly where they want it to be. And super fast. Gana is not a great passer of the ball lads. Despite What the stats say. He's not the only one btw. And he makes up for it woth his other attributes. But the top midfielders for the top sides are several brackets above gana for passing.

And because they are they keep the ball better and don't necessarily need someone with ganas qualities defensively.

I wonder what his pass accuracy is when he's passing forward rather than across the back.
