The winger came close to signing for Boro last summer but the temporary switch collapsed at the last minute but he has now secured a new club as he winds down the last six months of his contract at Everton.

I was staggered when we spent a shed load on a wide man who didn't know being on your toes gives you the balance to go either way and explode past a man.
No wonder injuries plagued him; his bizarre approach was an invitation to be cleaned out.

Well done ToffeeWebbers for showing a bit of true blue class too.

Based on his professionalism and work ethic he should stay on at the club (just not on his inflated wages) just to show others hows its done.

He does seem a nice guy, though, so good luck to him for the future.

His finest hour for me, was helping Palace turn over the RS, probably 7-8, years ago, but he scored a cracker in the Kop, Palace won, 3-0.
Good luck Yannick.

One other game which sticks in my mind was at West Brom (was it his debut for us, or maybe his debut was at Sunderland?) when he made a few marauding runs down the wing and delivered over some tantalising crosses for Lukaku. Can't actually remember the score that day though.

Andrew #7, you ain't kidding. I'll never forget the way he roasted Heitinga for that goal in 2014. I think Johnny kicked in part of his salary to buy Bolasie so he'd never have to face him again.

Bolasie - Barkley - Mirallas/Del Boy
Pace, power... no wonder he looked like a 7.5/10 player then.
When he came back from injury (the 'Moshiri Fab Four'!!)
Bolasie - Rooney - Walcott
Apart from the injury making it tough to come back, the quality of the players around him weren't near the quality required.

He won't ever get that kind of money again.
Cannot really blame him for staying.
25 Posted 30/01/2021 at 10:44:11
He still has 18 months left on his contract so seems to be a free plus a pay-off.
What was that Queen song? Another one off the books

Lossl was supposed to do what Olsen is doing - provide real competiton for Pickford.
Bolasie was supposed to offer a new dimension to the attack - pace adn power - injury did for that, and he wasn't good enough anyway.
Bernard was supposed to offer industry and creativity that had lacked since Arteta. He was poor. Rodriguez has set the standard for players on that wage.
Tosun - was supposed to be the goalscorer we had lacked since Lukaku - but slow, not particulary big or strong, no leap, no nothing really. At best a poacher in a time where strikers must offer more.
All of these players are on first team wages, and we won't be able to sign others of the required standard until these are off the books.

He's not top quality by I'd rather have him as an option off the bench than Tuson or Lossl.
Against Leicester and Newcastle he's what we don't have but need. A big strong pacey winger.
I except that we need better than him. But he's better than deciding between Gomes, Siggy or Bernard to come on and try to win a game for us.
I don't understand how he hasn't been involved in the squad given our lack of quality or attacking options.
