Thomas Partey: Midfield Tank Engine

Back on topic from me, he’s a brilliant, brilliant player. I consistently maintained that Partey would have a transformative effect on us and be a better fit than Aouar. Partey is among the elite CMs.

Mikel Arteta on Thomas Partey: "He looked really solid, really comfortable, and I think he held the midfield by himself in the second half when we were a little bit more open and took more chances, attacking spaces with some players."

"I think he was fantastic tonight and there is much more to come from him obviously.

I don't think he did fraud or there would be legal proceedings. My guess would be favours for intermediaries and overpaying for players.

Either way, that hustler got **** done.

You’d be surprised what people will let go in those circles. It’s a small world they live in.

I thought he was in second gear and quite conservative. There are levels to this guy. I love him.

Interesting. I was asking because that seems to be a common thing I hear of players who are both quite introverted and languid in style.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen him play any different, but you may be right.

Either way, massive signing.

He's wonderbar

I don't know about his personality and I wouldn't call his style languid but to explain, I don't think we'll see him go in to beast mode until our attacking play intensifies or his timid team mates are letting a game drift and he decides to take charge. His was a contained but still intense performance and you hope the whole team will match him and then increase their standards so we get back to playing a more enjoyable style of football.

Brother where have you been? I hope you not been chasing all the sexy aunties!
Bro! Went away for a bit to focus on the semester finals. That went really well fortunately but kind of got entangled in a bunch of stuff. Not sexy aunties but one slightly weird attraction I can't say and a couple of girls who got in trouble with the UNI faculty fortunately before things got out of hand on my end. With the situation in the country it seems better to lay low for now and focus on other stuff.

Came around here a bit to check if we got Aouar but Partey seems like is proving to be a coup. Looking at the table though and reading the comments in Arteta thread we ain't getting much joy still. That's the case for all the others as well I guess.
