Scored last season vs both Lpool and Man U, both of which were winners I think. How many of our players can say that ?

Niasse's story is the weird kind of thing that can turn around not just his career but our season.

We might have had the Lukaku replacement all along...

He may not be the greatest all round striker in terms of build-up play, but he does appear to to able to finish.

Some of those other cult-heroes cost nothing. They were grafters but generally poor.

This guy cost us 13m so I think people shouldn't be so quick to judge him as sub-standard, like Koeman did.

Martinez may have faults in terms of his football style, but I'm sure he's not totally incompetent at judging a player that we were looking at signing.

Did he not take the 'gamble' on Lukaku for 28m when many fans thought that was way too much and preferred to talk about his faults ?

No-one knows the facts on Niasse re his injury after he first arrived. No-one knows why Koeman shut him out. It's all just rumours.

But the fact Koeman had reintegrated him shows to me that he's admitting he had something to offer after all. Even though Koeman wont ever explain what really happened.

All we can do is support him now as an Everton player and judge him after he's had some more games.

I'm disappointed he wasnt put in our Europa League squad where he might've been useful and got more chances to play.

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't we fail to include him in our Europa league team?

Could come back to haunt us.

Yep. Another big mistake by Koeman.
