Different types of player. They can both have an impact I think. Long term DCL is going to develop into a monster of a player I think
With Niasse, my thoughts are that we didn't sign a striker at the end of the window and we thought we would. We are lacking pace up front and something a bit different. He can provide the role of super sub or just back up until Jan at least, so let's use him
He was given a chance last night (the first chance he's been given in over a year by the manager) and he took it. The fans were so positive about his introduction last night and gave him hero worship when he scored
The lad was practically booed in his appearances against Bournemouth and Leicester the season before last and I think it might have showed in his performances
So I just want everyone to get behind him and will him to do well. He's not had an easy time of things, it must have damaged his confidence and pride what has happened (and I'm of the opinion that money isn't everything, and that it doesn't necessarily mean happiness, I'm sure you feel the same) and that it has taken great character from him to get through this and I would love to see him score goals and take us up the table as well as helping us land a trophy or 2
Yeah points taken. I just find it all a bit lame the way we have 'Eddie the Eagled' him as ally says. He's average at best, which is why he only scored a few for Hull and why we didn't have loads of clubs wanting him in the summer.
I don't really buy into the thing of him being mistreated or any of that. Football is a meritocracy. If he was good enough, he'd be in the team, he'd have been given a locker and all that. In reality he's a very wealthy man, and I don't really feel any particular sympathy for him or dislike him in any way. I only care if he's good enough, and I don't think he is.
