Not the disaster it would have been if this had occured 12 months ago! Pienaar was quality for the 1st half of last year but looked tired and jaded for the rest of the season. Not sure if he's just past it now.

Anyway - Naismith or Foo Foo can battle this position out of the next month.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed Steven Pienaar will miss Saturday evening’s Premier League match against Chelsea.

But Roberto Martinez is ‘positive’ that Romelu Lukaku will be able to play against his former club.

The two players limped out of the 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the weekend.

Pienaar was forced from the field after just 10 minutes due to a groin problem, while Lukaku soldiered through the majority of the game before being replaced a quarter of an hour before the end with a toe complaint.

“They have both been assessed,” said Martinez at his Tuesday morning media briefing. “Stevie P is going to miss the game at the weekend. He is the one that is going to take a little bit of time.

“Stevie is going to be out and he is going to join Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo who are the only other two players that are not available.

“Romelu, we will keep assessing him. He has reacted well in the 48 hours after the game.

“At the moment it is too early to know if he will be available at the weekend but I am quite positive with Rom.”

Martinez also revealed that Darron Gibson is now operating at full fitness and is in contention to force his way into the matchday squad for the visit of Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.

The former Manchester United midfielder, who missed the vast majority of last season with a long-term knee injury, was used sparingly throughout pre-season and was not named in the squad for the first two matches against Leicester City and Arsenal.

“Darron Gibson is fully fit and I consider him part of the squad,” added Martinez. “He will be ready from now on to join the group and compete for a place.”

We really miss him on the pitch. Can hold onto the ball well, pick a pass, great at drawing a foul, bit of calmness in the final third. Pity he's been in jured for so long.

I agree. I think he still has something to offer, not least linking up with Baines.

Roberto Martinez admits Everton have felt the absence of Steven Pienaar this season - but says the South African is closing in on a first-team comeback.

Martinez revealed on Friday that Pienaar is set to return to training next week, having not made an appearance for the Blues since 15 December.

That outing, against QPR, was one of just 10 for the 33yr old before he suffered the knee problem that put his campaign on hold.

And MArtinez told evertonTV: "we had very good news on Steven. He's going to join the group on Monday and we'll take it from that point on, making sure that slowly but surely we give him the right path to being fully fit and being able to enjoy his football again."

"We've missed Stevie massively throughout this season and it's important we'll be able to see him on a football pitch before the season ends."

Is he even 1st team standard anymore at his age... he wasn't exactly the great Stevie P of old when he last played if I recall rightly.

Just shows how bad shape we are in, if we are this reliant on an old crock like SP ....

I disagree, Pienaar's game isn't about physicality, it's about guile, speed of thought and ability to look after the ball. We've missed him and ossie massively (no coincidence that in the 2 league games since ossie's return, we've picked up 6 points). How many times does pienaar lose the ball? Very few, and if he is dispossessed, more often than not he draws a foul for it. Much beter player than he's given credit for. Martinez needs to stop buying wingers and look at start trying to find replacements for the likes of Pienaar and Ossie; intelligent players who are great in possession and know how to run a game of footy.

I agree with Tonts. He wasn't great early on in the season but the whole team was gash so it's unfair to pick on individuals.

apparently its vital that Pieman is fit BEFORE pre-season - probably so he can enjoy his holidays longer?

Re: 22: Steven Pienaar - Back where he belongs

Post  Super on Thu 23 Apr 2015, 11:34 am

Steven Pienaar has admitted he considered retiring during his injury problems this season but was persuaded to stay on because of the team spirit in the Everton dressing room. The South African has been struggling with knee and groin problems since last summer and has made on 11 appearances this term.

The 33yr old hasn't started a Premier League game since the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford on October 5 and has completed a full 90 mins just once for the Europa League dead rubber against Krasnodar on December 11.

Pienaar returned to action as a first half substitute against Swansea on April 11 but was ruled out of the Blues last game at home to Burnley last Saturday with muscle fatigue.

He said: "At one stage, I thought I had better just hang my boots up and call it a day. But on the other side I was just thinking that I enjoy going in and seeing the guys so I just had to stay strong and that kept me going. When you are at home not coming in for training you feel very down but as soon as I walk through the door, there's always the camaraderie in the group, there is always fin. Even if you are injured, you can always laugh and it keeps you going. Just to be among the players, it's kept me going.

That's what I love about Everton; players who really should have their contract terminated are happy to come in, just for the laughs, hang out with the guys and pick up their £30,000 wages, week in week out. Pienaar, Gibbo, Hibbo, Kone, Alcopops - dozens of them, all limping in, or being wheeled in by their pals, sitting around in comfy chairs shooting the breeze.

I'm just delighted we can offer that service, that players feel they don't actually need to play or anything stupid like that, they just need to belong.

Good old Everton, a home for overpaid crocks who used to be footballers.

Pienaar would have got a bumper pay rise when moving to Spurs and Everton would have had to match that to bring him back. We simply cant afford to a have a player earning £70/80k per week to just hang around untill his contract ends.

That's a bit heartless of you - Steven says how much it cheers him up to come in and have a laugh with the guys, and you begrudge sacrificing a mere three or four million pounds a year to let him do that. Bastard.
