Thomas Partey: Playing No Further Partey In This Season?

What disappoints me about Partey and in extension our team the most is that his security on the ball has gotten to the point of really bad. Passes the ball to the opposition and gets robbed constantly right now.

It's to a point where you have to say he's actually gotten lucky to not have more errors leading to goal.

We need a secure ballcarrier in midfield. Stat. I don't care who it is, but it needs to be a priority. We can't have an entire midfield (Xhaka, Partey, Sambi) that is dependant on form for this.

The guy played like a don when he arrived. Carried the ball, defended, dribbled, played brilliant passes.

Let's not jump to conclusions with this guy. We'll need him when we get a proper coach in.
He played about 3 good games for us. One of them were Elneny looked an absolute baller. He is poor and has been found out in a faster paced league. He cannot go both ways, he can't tackle, he can't move quick enough when someone changes direction.

He continues to shoot from distance when he is terrible at it.

He deserves to be dropped he been playing like pub midfielder this season look at first Everton wtf he doing? Just given the ball away unnecessary from the throw in there was no pressure on him either. He seriously need to wake it's not funny anymore

Partey is so sloppy on the ball, he looks amateurish at times.. sometimes he looks like he knows what he is doing, and other times he is sooooooooo sloppy and careless. Just not good enough at all, we didn't buy him to constantly give the ball away. Needs to improve a lot.

I admit I was so happy when we signed him and thought he will do great for us, but he seems sloppy on the ball and loses the ball far too often.

Wow, he was so bad today.

He also looked terrified, like a deer in headlights. It was pretty embarrassing to watch.

Look what Arteta has done to proven players like Auba and Partey.

Auba a top goal scorer for every club he played for, Partey one of the best midfielders in La Liga and in addition to this he rushed him back from an injury and isn't the same player again.

A positive for Arteta is, that we can't judge the young players, because the most are at the start of the career and we don't know how good they really are - while we know how good Auba and Partey can be.

AFCON will be a welcome break for him. I don't think he gets it as he was just running around tonight. No chemistry with Xhaka at all. The again, I'm in the sane boat.

Partey was Bang average today. But didn’t he make a last ditch tackle when an Everton player was through on goal?

Agree with that mobility/direction thing though.

Is he somehow getting shorter?

Doesn't look quite as intimidating as he did when he first arrived, tbh.

1 tackle doesn't make a good player. He can't tackle. How often do you see midfielders just glide past him. That happening is not knowing when/how to make the tackle. He is rubbish.

Combine him and Pepe and that was 125m outlay and the team is worse. Liverpool got VVD and Allison for that.

We also paid Partey top whack on wages to convince him to sign. We should now start convincing him that Spain is a much better suit for him and try to recoup something. Though on 200k a week a doubt it will happen.
