Had a good record prior to Everton and played well in a very poor hull side.

Pace, power and non stop working with a good finish.

Could play back up to benteke or preferably on the left side of a front 3

Available and reasonably cheap and he was very highly rated before Everton where he didn't really get a chance.

Would take him over de Jong to cover benteke and preferably on the left

How good are we going to get for back up? He didn't have a chance at Everton only playing a handful of games but was very highly rated before that and was one of hulls best players in the resurgence that nearly kept them up.

He's a player with a loss of form after a big transfer that has lots of potential and would probably come here willing to fight for a place on a modest fee. His style suits us and could play a couple of positions. As a back up player which we also need he's far from a terrible option.

Ideally we want someone who will come and compete with benteke for a start. That will be very expensive and I can't see anyone coming of that quality to potentially sit on the bench. Then we'd need another player to cover the wide forward positions. Failing that someone like niasse is better than lee, sako and what we are getting linked too

He actually put in some decent performances for Hull, at Selhurst I didn't think he was upto much personally but he's shown he can be a handful on his day.

Niasse is better than nobody, granted. But is Campbell level. So as a 3rd/4th choice striker then maybe

Strikes me as a player that needs to be first choice just for his own confidence. That place won't be here and we aren't at that level anymore with someone like Benteke up top as I can't see him rivaling him for a starting spot.

Nice sort of player to have up alongside Benteke though with half an hour left. Not Bentekes game to run onto balls through the middle. Would take him for his pace and power.

No thanks. Terrible footballer

He is a funny one to work out. He certainly puts in the effort, strong and powerful, pacy and has scored some great goals in his time but at times can look completely useless and fail to score from a yard. As a low cost wild card maybe but not sure I would risk relying on him to start.

I have read some of that before and TBH it seems way over the top for someone they have barely seen (152 mins). Got the impression that someone had a whisper from inside the club and that got out and every one joined in. (not suggesting him, more a comment re the toffees)

10m is stupid but as a backup striker on the bench that puts himself about and causes havoc and occasionally hits screamers he would be OK at 5m or 6m and sensible wages. Has pace, strength and stamina. Clumsy, far from clinical and apparently that is all we are good for at Palace so fans should like him after a while because we can bitch about how s*** he is but he tries.

Serious option I suspect.

bigend1
29-08-2017, 10:57 AM
I started this this as for the right money he'd be decent back up and can cover a variety of positions.

Was good pre Everton, was good hull. Awful at Everton but has what? Three games or so? ;)

10m is far too much for me though, even in today's money. Maybe with add ons but my idea signing him was as cover for relatively low cost so as to facilitate signings such as Sakho. If that happens it's a good signing.. for less real money

This is how low we currently are but I would take this. So depressing but at least he has pace and movement. We need two more strikers/players who can play wide in a front three, so could be one. I had hoped for much better but who knows what we are doing striker wise given our complacency in starting the season with one fit senior striker.

We need a back up striker or someone that could play alongside of just off Benteke if circumstances were to change with the manager which could well happen sooner rather than later.
Just go and make an offer for Dwight Gayle who is up for grabs or in a straight swap for Hennessey, knows the club and fans so no problems settling and probably could be bought for around 8m. Also we know what he is capable off if played CORRECTLY (off Benteke is ideal) he would guarantee you 10/12 goals if not more, if played all season. What is there not to like?
Why are we wanting to gamble 10/12m on someone like Niasse when we know he has struggled previously at other clubs, get in Gayle as the "nippy" striker we need and when Wickham is back there is like for like cover for Benteke.

Oh FFS. Sorry Nigel this first exasperation is far wider than your post but WTF is it about Palace that makes so many of us want our old players back.

Back to your specific post - I would say that if his current manager, Benitez, has recognised immediately that he isn't going to make it at Premier level despite having him as a thundering goal machine in the Championship, then I would say that is as good an answer as you can get. His problem isn't putting away a chance when he gets it it's the poor movement and play to get him into those positions and the inability to make a difference other than poking it away. Its awesome when he scores but .......

I wouldn't pay 10m for Niasse, but that's a different question. If Gayle was available for $5m then it might make sense but he won't be surely, because a Championship club will pay big money for those goals.

The point is that each Premier Manager he has had has looked at him, fancied him up front and then concluded exactly the same thing. That is why for me.

Martin,
Let me explain my reasons which i thought i had. As for the points you raised i.e not rated by his manager, how often do we see this happen? is it a true reflection of the players ability? or just that he does not figure in his manager's plans, as in the case of Townsend with FdB.
As for Gayle not being able to cut it in the premiership that may or may not be the case, but what is certain is whilst at Palace he was seldom used where he should have to be at his most effective.
How often have we all said what the hell is he doing playing a lone striker role? and when used alongside Murray was deadly as we remember against Liverpool, as for his movements yes it could be better, but on the flip side his conversion rate is very good and is it not that which is what we judge and want from a striker?
If Palace are going to get ourselves out of this rut without getting deeper in it soon then we need to go back to basics, and that should mean Benteke getting the service he needs to be effective, and ideally playing a fellow striker either alongside OR just off to make this Palace side a bigger goal threat which it would be.
I accept it won't happen with what FdB is attempting to play, but maybe he needs get real if it's failing as it clearly is, ok all be it after just a few games, but with players looking bemused and confused at times says it all.
And to prove that point, here we are after 3 games (all lost) 6 goals conceded and None scored surely says it ain't working, do we need to get to the point of no return before realising, when maybe the answer lays at looking at playing something different which could work better.
As for his value surely in this ludicrous market if asked to pay what Niasse is going for is not unreasonable, and as for Premier managers backing off, then they need to realise if you play a 5ft 6ins tall striker as the lone striker and wonder why they are not getting the best out of him, then they need to look at themselves and their own judgement.

29-08-2017, 01:58 PM

Nigel - appreciate you taking the time and as ever very clear. Most of your points I agree with BTW as principles. (I deleted the FDB stuff or this will just turn into yet another kill the witch thread and I can't cope)

The core points for me is that we did over his time with us play Gayle in all sorts of positions and combinations. It did work for a few mins at the end of the Liverpool game and I don't doubt his finishing and maybe a better all round game up at Burnley but it rarely worked out for long. I just think if all of those different Managers reach the same conclusion over 3 years then they can't all be wrong can they? The most telling is Benitez who arguably has seen the best of him as he scored goals for fun there. The Mgr is no slouch and knows his players. If he really can't see a place for Gayle after that, then there has to be a shortfall. Unless there is a personal explanation (that I haven't got wind of) but I don't think Gayle asked for the move.

Anyway - the difference between is more that I am resigned to that conclusion and I think you still hope for a better outcome. If he was to come back I would be rooting for him but I wouldn't go chasing him.

Re Niasse - I understand the rep he has and have seen him miss some howlers but there is definite some raw material there and I have also seen some screamers. So as a low cost backup striker at 5 or 6m he is probably OK but understand he controls the ball like Ladapo. TBH if Gayle was available at that price then you would snap him up too but he won't be will he? More like 15m or more?

In another thread I would like to know what service to Benteke looks like because I am getting less clear the more I see him. but that should be in another thread. Cheers

The enigma that is Dwight Gayle is being touted at 15m so 10m is not a lot at all. Two strikers, maybe this one plus the Turk would then allow us to loan/sell Anderson & Ladapo.

“Crystal Palace have agreed a fee with Everton for the permanent transfer of Oumar Niasse,” reveals David Hytner. “The Senegal striker will now discuss personal terms with the London club. Brighton have also been interested in him and they have tried to take him on loan. But Palace, who do continue to explore other centre-forward options, are in the driving seat.”

Scored 4 in 17 for Hull. Has no worthwhile record before that. But an improvement on what we have no doubt.

Not the best record but Hull were quite defensive last season. If we go back to counter attacking football his pace could be threatening.

Extremely underwhelmed. Never scored for Everton, only played five times for them, and 4 goals for Hull in 17 games. Very average.

But didn't Hull score about 10 goals all season?

Could be a good signing. Scored goals at a 1/3 rate in a crap Hull side last season and will offer us pace up front which we desperately lack right now.

That's just it, I don't know much about Niasse other than reading what the Evertons supporters were saying last time we were interested and they were not good things but this isn't a FDB signing. No way would a manager who has managed in Europe come to the PL and say yes let's buy Niasse.

Remember seeing the highlights from his Russian club when Everton signed him and thinking that they might have unearthed another good player. Everton have one of the better scouting records (especially for younger players).

Not sure what went wrong for him at Everton but it struck me as he left that their fan response to him was widely known and most people hadn't see him play for Everton. So before arriving at Hull he had an awful rep. He seemed to do OK at Hull but TBH I am not sure what the fans thought of him.

If he can come on and perform anything like that the Russian footage all will be good. He does seem to put himself about, with power and pace. I doubt anyone here will give him a chance if he comes though because we seem to be schizophrenic these days. We don't want this nanny pamby passing to a Palace player thing, or patience on the ball. Nope, we want gungho , run around, sweat your b****** off players that run anywhere for 90 mins. One turns up and he isn't good enough for us....... right.....

He is a funny one to work out. He certainly puts in the effort, strong and powerful, pacy and has scored some great goals in his time but at times can look completely useless and fail to score from a yard. As a low cost wild card maybe but not sure I would risk relying on him to start.

Exactly, is he sitting in Burger King at Watford Gap while we wait to see if anything better turns up?

At least Niasse appears willing to sign and hasn't faffed around like a lot of others would, despite being left hanging. I'm willing to give the lad a chance because he's shown he's keen for the fight at the least. Probably feels like he's won the pools but our fans will no doubt show him the error of his ways judging by social media.

A back up striker with plenty of premier league experience for a smallish fee , that's ok in my eyes . It leaves more money for other players .

He's played in this league, for a struggling side, looked dangerous and scored goals. I think he also might feel he has something to prove and wants a chance to show what he can do. Given the current state of affairs, i think that's about as much as we can hope for.

If he comes, I'm going to sponsor him, just for the hell of it. Anyone else in? Can't be worse than that three-legged greyhound the BBS lost its collective shirt on years ago. Selhurst Park Fry Up, or whatever it was called. Didn't it end up as part of a Clifton Arms meat raffle?

As long as it is a smallish fee I agree

Only played 142 minutes for Everton so no way to judge on that in a team where the comparison was Lukaku.

Played the equivalent of 12 full games at Hull with 4 goals and 1 assist. 3 of the goals came against Swansea and Boro.

Genuine question then, what level of a player should we be signing for a back up striker role? For me, with our financial limitations this seems about right.

It's our year. Been on the cards the last couple of seasons. Can't have home form like ours season after season and expect to keep getting away with it. It's Been fun while it lasted!
