Didn't he sign before Walsh was brought in?
Walsh signed on 21st July, and Di Matteo said we triggered Gueye's release on 29th July. Pretty sure we were alreadu linked with him before Walsh was confirmed, but the Echo ran a piece saying that Walsh gave Koeman the push to seal the deal which seems likely:

The Mail have a piece today crediting Walsh with Gueye's signing also:

We should probably just give him all our end of season awards now. He's genuinely worldclass. Love him

I like the way he is also good offensively, and being allowed more licence to press/win balls/make passes/attacks higher up the pitch.
Not at all interested in being popular

Very interested in saying/doing what's right for Everton FC.

We may agree/disagree but its all about opinions/debate and thats what makes football/supporting Everton amazing.

Really good piece on Gana, with some statistical analysis of what he brings:

https://www.whoscored.com/Articles/6PO9aIBjP0W4vV9Na-PJMw/Show/Gueye-a-Vital-Cog-in-Evertons-Unbeaten-Machine

Some of the highlights being:

- Most tackles in the Prem so far (23, 4 more than the next player)
- His total passes have increased markedly each game (38, 54, 65, 106)
- Remarkably, his passing accuracy has increased significantly, the more passes he's made (81.6%, 88.9%, 90.8%, 95.3%)
- Key passes have also gone up each game (0, 1, 2, 3)
- 120 touches in the Sunderland game was the second highest by any player in the Prem this season, in a single game.

This is only tangentially related to the thread topic but... have Cleverley and Gibson picked up knocks in training or is Tom Davies just straight-up beating them out for a spot in the matchday squad?

Big Ronald just said Cleverley is fit, but didn't make the 18 on Monday, so Davies is ahead of him. Dunno about Gibson, but I'd like to think the same.

Unsurprisingly it seems Gibson is injured.

I suppose re Davies vs Cleverley we needed a more defensively minded CM option with no McCarthy.

Koeman obviously saw something positive in training. It was more like last season with Barry very deep , even dropping into a back three at times which allowed Gana to get further forward. In previous games they were either both sitting just in front of back 4 or Gana was the deeper of the two.

So with that trajectory we can expect him to make 38 key passes on the last day of the season :smug:
