Orny got it wrong then.
Difficult to succeed at Blackpool, they were very poor last year. I thought he did alright everything considered.Didn't really pull up any trees at Blackpool so it was unlikely we'd get a decent fee for him. Probably best to loan him out again and see what happens next summer.
Arteta must have some serious powers of seduction with the amount of players he has convinced to stay or sign for us.
Considering how the first team is going, very very few of our academy players will move on to play for us. That being said, the academy can give many a great start in a future career. We had players like Seb Larsson who forked out a decent career.Some necks are about to get a bit of whiplash if he stays...
With Partey staying another year and Jorginho staying another 12 months, there might be a way for him to play for us.
Even if he is just a serviceale squad player, that's a win as far as Colney goes.
Yeah he was a very awkward fit even when Appleton was there. Swansea actually try to play possession football and I think he'd very much fit their style of play. Will be interesting to see what role he plays there, as I could see them using him as the deepest midfielder for some games given his main skillset. He's actually a fairly decent ballwinner, although I think he lunges in a bit too much to overcompensate for his lack of speed and acceleration. I think of the role Jorginho plays and I think Patino can become a very similar player with perhaps a little more versatility with his ability to carry the ball and his eye for goal.Difficult to succeed at Blackpool, they were very poor last year.

Swansea ought to be a better fit.
