Thomas Partey: Midfield Tank Engine

Macho

The commentators seemed shocked by how good his passing is...maybe I am reading too much into it, but I feel pretty much every black central midfielder is seen as a "ball-winning DM", annoys me.

Will be amazing here, still can't believe we signed him :drool:
Yeah you’re right, black/african midfielders of his build do tend to get type-casted as destroyers sometimes.

Some players do manage it ofcourse but it’s hard to get by in La Liga for that long without being good on the ball.

Very well rounded and happy he is here. It looked like he wasn’t even trying.

He's so far ahead of everything we have right now that it's gonna become evident that none of our other midfielders are good enough if we're to seriously progress. Ok for this season and trying to get into too 4 but going forward we need to find Partey an actual top partner and a top creative midfielder too.

Think he and Ceballos will look really good together.

This sounds great and all, but was the game bearable ? The result looks **** and I'm not sure about rewatching a bad match just for his scenes.

Can someone share a video of his whole performance? I missed large parts of the game.

Mod Edit: please don't do this

Tiers above tonight's standard. Which we'd expect.

So clever. Be interesting to see what he brings in the PL. Our best midfielder by some Margin

I just watched some highlights and **** me. Having someone in midfield who doesn’t move like he’s in quick sand is unrecognisable as an arsenal fan.

As soon as he gets the ball he looks to move it on instantly or drive forward with it if he has the space/is an option.

Can’t wait to see more of him.

Can’t wait to see his Vs video. Just watched the match highlights and he wasn’t really shown in those.
