Just 16 years old. Anyone else seen him play for the Ivory Coast?

Looks a class prospect.

More info on him here. (http://www.talksport.co.uk/magazine/virals/2011-06-27/next-drogba-watch-souleymane-coulibaly-smash-home-eight-goals)

Yeah. Looked good from what I saw. Full of running and used the ball well too.

I hate it when a good young player gets dubbed: "The next Maradona/Pele/Drogba".

There won't be another player like that because they are all individually unique. What's funny is the comparison between him and Drogba. Their styles are different. If anything, and like what the comment says in the article, he is more like Eto'o.

You don't have to compare him to another black player, you racist.

Just kidding, I also like that I'm writing in white in order to clear up a racism related joke.

Reported for making a racial accusation.

I haven't really. Though I could. But I won't.

Agree. But maybe we have an English equivalent in NGoo. He needs to be given opportunity to show what he can do.

How is he doing? Did he do well for the youth teams last season?

"An imposing presence in the attacking third" Scored a hat trick somewhere along the way, also a goal of his described as 'Maradona-esque' (I didn't see it, maybe it was the hand of....). He does move the ball about well and he is a goal threat.

I think you'll find this is what's known as 'faux racism'... It's all the rage amongst edgy comedians. I'm actually a fan as it sorts the idiots from the clowns.

i know because a great player makes a name for them self like messi they have their own style of play...

Oh no, mate, not what you said. What HermioneGranger said about black players often being clueless and strong seemingly by virtue of the fact that they're black.

I think he was lampooning the stereotype mate.

Have you ever played football by any chance? Kind of hard to do it without relying on your athleticism. And if you say that athleticism is all that black players have ("in general") then you're over-estimating the difference between races.

You're comprehension isn't so good. Nowhere in my post does it say all black players rely on athleticism, it's a trend which seems to apply to black players.

Most are fast/strong/athletic...

I didn't imply an 'opposed to' element either. Some white players are incredibly athletic.
Why do people on these forums just want to start arguments? Like the Black Eyed Peas were saying in Werchter, 'Where is the love?'...

I accept that, my point is most footballers are strong and fast and athletic. Likewise, most footballer players (black or otherwise) have a tremendous level of skill with ball-control, ball-retention, passing and shooting. That's how they got to be professional athletes.

To say black players, in general, rely on the physical aspect of the game is patently false as is evidenced by many black players who don't. To say they rely on their strength and size implies that should that be removed, they wouldn't be able to hold their own. I'm not trying to start an argument, I think what you're saying is untrue.

Fair enough, I agree but that's why I think what I have said has been taken out of proportion as these generalities are only noticeable at the highest level. Could be self-fulfilling, i.e. coaches nurture the physicality of the black players more and don't hone other parts of their game. Seems to be more important in youth, if a player is strong and fast they stand out at that level more so even if they're technically not so good.

Come to think of it, most strong and quick players, regardless of race tend to conform to the same stereotype. You've given me a lot to think about here...

Forget Niang - this is the guy who we should get to be the fourth choice striker and be an impact player off the bench.

He's the new Eto'o!
