In his first two appearances as a sub he was yellow carded and I had my doubts. Since then his performances have improved and if he can get his shooting boots on I can see a useful contribution in goals. His pass to Andros on Saturday was top drawer. He gives us that bit of physical presence in midfield that compensates for Meyer's size.

I'm not sure whose accounts, I heard plenty of WHam fans moaning about losing him, especially during their poor start to this season.

If anything his drop in performances for them coincided with WHam's Director of Player Recruitment, Tony Henry, stating that they didn't want to sign any more African Players as they cause 'Mayhem' when not playing. Kouyate went on to post that he's 'African And Proud' on Insta, which was liked by his then team-mates.

I wouldn't want to play for a club if they came out with stuff like that about my heritage either.

Clubs like westham and spurs have this rotten element in their core, and I'm so glad we don't have anything like that at Palace or I would reconsider my supporting stance.

As nostrils says his heading ability looks very important for us as we aren't the biggest if teams especially in the midfield
I note he was given fellaini to mark at corners in the man utd game

He is definitely contributing more and more gradually and seems to be able to get box to box and back again repeatedly
Both he and luka are needed I think if we play Meyer which might mean macarthur would be the one to miss out if we start a real forward one day

Harsh perhaps on macarthur who always give his all and a few goals to boot

It’s natural that Spammers would’ve moaned at the start of the season, because they had no competent DM (with Carlos Sanchez proving to be cack), and Wilshere and co were getting overran each week. Since then though Declan Rice has emerged in that position and been very good, so they don’t miss Kouyate anymore. My ‘accounts’ were West Ham supporting mates, family, and the majority of comments I saw on social media and West Ham forums.

Started to look better against Man U and Burnley but tonight he was just another one who ought to be apologising.

A complete contrast to how he played against Burnley and Man Utd, but he wasn't the only one. I'd have kept him on and moved him further up top, simply because they were obviously going to park the bus - our best chance would have been from crosses, and currently he's our best header of the ball.

So basically playing him as a striker, shows how desperate we are

Well yes, but when they parked up and waited for the chance to counter, it would've been more effective than trying to pin point pass through a wall of blue and white. When it's that congested, he'd not necessarily be a striker, but at least be in the box. We had midgets in there in comparison to them.

I just don't think we had many cards left to play, and we surrendered one of our best cards.

This guy is a back up CB at best. Yet he's never dropped. His touch and passing is atrocious and his defensive qualities aren't good enough either because he's too slow for the PL. One of the biggest problems in the team right now along with not having a proper striker.

He tries his best but he's a workhorse and nothing more. He's exactly the kind of player Hodgson values. Unfortunately, we've replaced a Rolls Royce in Cabaye with an old banger in Kouyate. More good transfer business from us.

I think we were watching a different game. Granted, his passing could be better, but how many times did he steal the ball off of a West Ham player or simply get there first through pace and determination? Plenty. His football isn't pretty on the eye, but he's a hassler. Put him in the 2 of a 4231 and he'll be more effective like everyone else.

His passing didn't look any worse than Luka's or Sakho's to me.

Thought he had a great game till subbed
Any news on his injury status?
They made a very quick decision to get him off after he suffered his injury.

Sakho is one of the best passers that there is.


He might look a bit clumsy but my God, we'd be utter shite without him.

I’ve come to the conclusion that he is good in combative games like today. He is strong, good in the tackle, and excellent in the air. His weaknesses are exposed in games where we go behind and the opposition pack everyone behind the ball. He doesn’t have the ability to thread delicate passes.
