    There's no rhyme or reason to Pepe's dribbling. He's just winging it every time the ball is at his feet. It's not because he's in a higher position. He's just not good at it except in training, where players aren't on him like flies on poop.

    On top of that Partey played 539 minutes more in the league, which amounts to ~6 more games.

    People always seem to think minutes played doesn't matter, only "how many games he played".

    Fake news. Pepe completed 72 dribbles last season.

    You're entitled to that opinion, but using those stats to justify it is just incorrect thats all.

    Midfielders can have more dribbles per game than wingers.

    He is not ugly, even pretty handsome I'd say, no homo.

    You're an idiot "ArtetaOut". Welcome new member.

    Just checked whoscored.com and Pepe completed the 10th most dribbles per game in the PL last season :lol:

    I was thinking the same myself. A guy who is superficial enough to even mention it probably has the type of girlfriend who would jump ship anyway ;)

    So is there any truth to rumors that he will have to be quarantined for 2 weeks once he gets back from his int'l duties ?

    But at the same time if they lose the ball it's more costly than if a winger loses it in the opposition box.

    Don't think so as he'll be part of the elite sports bubble.

    I think the dribbles midfielders complete may be easier and thats why they can sometimes have quite high dribble %'s or statistics. I guess the closer you get to goal, the more opposition players are around you and the better at defending they are. The dribbles become more high risk but high reward.

    Fill me in, what bubble are we talking about :)

    Supposedly elite athletes who have been training with clubs are part of the "elite sports bubble". For example Ceballos came in and didn't need to quarantine as he had started training with Madrid. Probably because the players are tested regularly at all clubs.

    So yeah I think he can come and train on the 13th when he comes back from Ghana.

    Something invented so football doesnt go bankrupt. If you’re in isolation with your team in one place you can play/join other teams as well if everyone does it. It doesnt work but better than nothing.

    Great then. Looking forward to see him in his first match to face against the very best: DeBruyne.

    Next two league matches are also tough opponents: Leicester and United.

    I don't agree with that when it comes to playing against teams with aggressive pressing.

    If you're not confident in your dribbling skills, you'll lose the ball and suffer a blitz counter that results in a goal/penalty/freekick/red card for your CB etc.

    That's why our midfield has been a shambles ever since Santi got injured. When he was playing in midfield he would always get the ball forward no matter who was pressing him. He was that good with it.

    He's not slow but he won't get that much time on the ball here than he did over there.

    It's fine because if teams decide to press and double him, he's more than capable to make the right move. It will free Xhaka to some extent, we should be seeing the best of him alongside Partey.

    It depends what counts as a completed dribble, sometimes in the midfield they glide past players who arent tight enough to them. This doesnt happen in the attack.

    But yeh I agree that a dribble in midfield is more risky.
