Sky pundit claims that Thomas Partey ‘can do everything’

Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Arsenal’s Thomas Partey is the type of midfielder we had in the ‘golden era’, likening him to Petit and Vieira.

The Ghanaian enforcer has been outstanding since making his debut for the club last month, having joined from Atletico Madrid on Deadline Day in October.

Lucas Torreira moved in the opposite direction on loan, and is also impressing, but we will be the happier of the two clubs.

Redknapp was full of praise for Partey, who was voted as the Man of the Match in the win over Man United.

“He’s a bit of a throwback. I don’t look at him as just a No. 6, a No. 8 or a defensive midfielder, I just think of him as a really good midfield player that can do everything,” Redknapp told Sky Sports (Via Goal).

“I think back to the likes of Patrick Viera and Emmanuel Petit – that was the golden era.

“Arsenal had a desire and energy to get the ball back. They were better in every department. Gabriel was magnificent and Partey was the best player on the pitch. He looks like an incredible signing.”

It has been a while since we had a near-perfect window, with all three of our new first-team members all making a difference after a short time with the club.

Will Partey prove to be the signing of the season? Do all our new signings still have more to offer as they build rapport with their new team-mates?

  1. We didnt want to hear/read what he or anyone else had to say. We already knew what was said about Partey hence we signed him.

    OT: Bellerin with yet another foul throw. How many more is there yet to come?? Guess I have to wait and see.

  2. Slightly away from the subject but I much respect Jamie Redknapp and also find him likeable, as also his Dad, HARRY.

    I also like Graeme Sounes but find myself wishing he would be less remote and hard nosed to Jamie himself when in the studio together.


    But provided they are being honest in their views and not playing mind games, as some, like Robbie Savage and Michael Owen do, then I like listening to them.

    But how vastly they vary in quality. I cannot stand listening to SAVAGE, OWEN or that prize twerp Mc MANAMAN! McManaman seems to think every diabolical yellow or even red card foul, correctly given, is a fair tackle. Where do the companies find some of these twerps!

  3. To answer PATRICKS question , if PARTEY is NOT the signing of the season, then whoever beats him is one helluva player!

    I really think we have to goright the way back to Viera to see ANY new signing make such an immediate impact at our club. Neither Henry, Bergkamp, nor even Pires made such a hit right from the very start. Possibly, Sol CAMPBELL RUNS HIM CLOSEST!
