Is Niko trying to showboat too much?

Maybe just holding on to the ball a little longer than he needs to etc...

Thoughts?

I wouldn't say 'showboating' but overplaying it to lap up the crowd, yes. 

It's up to him and I don't really mind 6-0 up against Dunfermline, but he probably cost a few of his teammates a chance of a goal.

Showboating isnt maybe the word. But could have passed quicker.

He's a good enough player to know when and when not to showboat, so I have zero problems with this.

That's Niko. He's always looking to play men in with a defence-splitting pass. It won't always come off but I enjoy watching him turn opponents inside out.

He's an entertainer.

 It's not just tonight I had this kind of perception, that maybe he was playing to the crowd, not playing the game...

Nope. Reckon he's having to do it as the other players are struggling to spot the spaces as fast as he does. 

They'll get it and we'll really fly when they do.

I thought this was a piss take when I first read it but fuck it, (might be the drink) I agree.

Player tries to be exciting at 5 nil -  we start a negative sounding thread? Go figure.

He was good with it though. I thought maybe just being back from injury he didn't quite have that sharpness, but he did manage to hold on to the ball most of the time while taking the piss out of the opposition. And as others noted, the game was done by the time he came on.

Honestly I'm speechless. Not the first time with you. But as a mod I have to bite my tongue.

Guy's a class act, and it pays off more often than not.

Only wish we had got him a few years younger.

Why? Because I critique a negative thread after a 6-0 win? Do we not love to be entertained. Niko brings us class and guile - which I think will be important to us - that 'guile' means he tries things that are different - sometimes they work, sometimes not but to start a thread to discuss him 'showboating to much' for me is a negative spin on an exciting player on a night that was so positive.

When we're shagging teams Niko can come on and do what he wants. 

Love him. Proper baller.

Against the better teams that kinda showboating could and probably will cost us that's my worry with him, that and he's always skating the line of an injury cos some cunt will no doubt snap him in anger.
