Crikey, I think I find myself agreeing with most of what you're saying here.

Yes, and me

He's very good at keeping the ball but I do think that he is guilty of getting his head down and not always looking up for passes that are on. The main problem as I see it is that he rarely crosses (either because he can't or won't) and seems to have little power in his shots, meaning he doesn't really offer enough in terms of goals or assists. He always puts a shift in, but if we are going to progress we need our forward players to offer more and currently of the front three only Zaha is really producing the goods. Thankfully we have options waiting in the wings (excuse the pun).

I agree. His close control, dribbling and ability to drive with the ball is very good, certainly up there with the best in the team. Unfortunately his decision making is very poor, as you say head down far too often and runs into blind allies. If he just released the ball earlier hed be so much more effective. Some would refer to him as a hogger! He is a hard worker though and credit to him for that and why he was such a favourite of Roy but now with Olise and Eze his game time will be a challenge for him.

agreed. Still some improving to do. But Ayew is a threat in the final third of the pitch.

Eze and Olise are the obvious replacements for Ayew but can we afford to play with two wingers who do not protect our full backs? Mitchell seems to be ok with no cover from Wilf but I'm not sure Ward would fair as well without Ayew in front of him. Townsend did this job last year and PV has passed this role onto Ayew.

If/When Olise replaces Ayew, we will require a lot of ground to be covered from our three CMs.

I like Ayew and more than happy to see him start. Id also like to see Hughes get a chance. I think him and Gallagher in the middle would be irresistibly and further enhance our play.

Oh Eddie, Eddie you really went and jinxed it.

Please say he's got no chance of scoring if he plays next Saturday.

he's not in the form of two seasons ago, I don't see a return to that form, along with macca and Luka he is one of several tired parts of our squad that needs to be phased out

PV now has good reason to drop him for Olise. Actually, despite his work rate, Ayew has never convinced out on the right, and Benteke and Eduoard are in front of him for the CF role, so I don't see where he fits into the overall scheme of things apart from bench warming.
When Eze returns to fitness and Olise gets more starts that'll be it for Ayew I suspect.

Zaha also had an excellent opportunity to bed the game before his miss, Ayew got himself into that chance by being in the right place at the right time and he is going to hate his miss more then us, he is a class individual and yet again was constantly dealt with by a boot, Ayew helped us make a team looking to go top tonight appear utter crap.

Finally. A rational post. A lot of fickle dross on this thread but this is probably the most balanced, objective response so far

Agreed to a point. logical replacement at this time will be Schlupp for Ayew in the next game. Offers better defensive and attacking quality in my opinion. Ayew is a hard worker and clearly wants to do well, but he has had a run of games and never really looked like causing any threat. I think Schlupp will offer much more. Olise needs time to bed in and will get his chance I am sure but too soon to be chucked in this early.

Some people are like Slinkies not really good for anything, but you cant help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.
