Islam Slimani Banned for Rest of the Season

Recommended Posts

How's he done @Kitchen Sales ? Durham spoke positively about him last week which must mean something.

Islam Slimani's Newcastle season is over after he was banned for three matches following a violent conduct charge.

The Algeria striker accepted the charge but argued the suspension was excessive, however, this was rejected by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

Slimani, who is currently on loan from Leicester, was involved in an off-the-ball incident where he kicked out at West Brom defender Craig Dawson during Saturday's 1-0 Premier League defeat at St James' Park.

He was poor when he came on against West Brom. Seemed to be having a go at his own team mates for things that were his mistakes. 

Early promise in first 2 games, not so good next 2. 

4 isn't enough to judge but I wouldn't pay much for him if he was available.

he's a very physical player and it's his style of play to be aggressive. It can work in some teams if they play a way that suits him but aside from that, he can be a bit hit and miss. He'll blow hot and cold throughout the season and similar to what @Kitchen Sales alludes to - couple of good games with a goal or assist and couple of bad, ineffectual games.

To be fair to him, he stepped up in the Champions League when required. Always scored against Porto when he was at Sporting and carried on that tradition here. 

Probably best if he left us cos he's definitely not the kind of player Puel would profit from in a possession-based tactic.
