Hopefully some minutes in the cup
The main Ghanaian will be back, our run in our competition starts… goodnight nurse geordies.
Would prefer not to see him in the cup to be honest. We should have enough without him.
In normal circumstances I’d agree, but he needs some minutes under his belt, only played about 3 full games in 3 months.
Yea fair enough, he can come on at the 70 minute mark or of there is extra time so.
Yeah I’m not opposed to him being on the bench, just hoping he’s in the squad for some sort of involvement to gather some match fitness.
I honestly cannot fucking wait to have this guy fit for a prolonged period, will definitely be LANS
Partey and Ceballos behind ESR, Saka, Martinelli and Auba
When will this lad be fit and ready again .
Can’t wait to see him in full fitness
So how was Partey when he came on ? Have any impact at all ?
Improved defensively but offensively it was pretty much the same.
I am getting worried about him. I am not sure with who he can partner with in midfield. The best I’ve seen him was with Elneny.
Hopefully he stays fit and starts gelling more with the others.
I would have liked us trying to play with a single pivot and Partey being the deepest midfielder. Unfortunately, we don’t have the personnel yet. Maybe ESR and Willock in front him? Although, the latter hasn’t looked good lately.
Yes his passes were sharper, quicker and his play a yard quicker than anyone else.
Following on from what @RockyMaivia said in the AMN thread. We’ve got a highly rated midfielder that we are happy to pass around or watch Luiz/Holding waltz right past him to get the ball up the pitch. Why not play through him? He’s demonstrated he can do this at every level thus far.
We’ve absolutely no business signing these kinds of players if they are not going to suit a system, especially at the price we seem to be paying for players recently.
Seems a real disconnect with personnel here.
Partey showing up!
Good service from midfield a rare sight
Ah, this is what a quality midfielder looks like.
Nobody missing Dani then. Wonder why. Bum.
You had him sussed out before most homie.
What a novelty
