Newcastle mode-on: If you could buy any midfielder to play next to Partey in our 4231 system, who would it be?

Imagine that all of a sudden, Kroenke decides to finally massively invest in our club or that he decides to sell to a mega-consortium with unlimited funds…Edu and Arteta are given a blank check for one player and only for a player that can play in the midfield next to Partey, money is not an issue but they can only pick one player…

In this fictional scenario, who would you like Edu-Arteta to pick?

  1. Ngolo Kante
  2. P. Pogba
  3. J. Kimmich
  4. L. Goretzka
  5. W. Ndidi
  6. K. Philipps
  7. D. Rice
  8. Rodri
  9. Fabinho
  10. Jorginho
  11. Verratti
  12. Casemiro
  13. Modric
  14. Busquets
  15. Gavi
  16. Foden

There are so many options…so would you pick?

Ramsdale – Tomy, White, Gabs, Tierney – Partey, ? – Saka, Ode, ESR – Auba

It is a very tough choice but I d hesitate between Pogba, Kimmich and Kante. Pogba is playing at a very high level this season, Kimmich and Kante are so hard working and reliable…But ultimately, I think I d go for Kante because of his work ethics and humble disposition…

    Depends on who we are playing, Norwich? We don’t really need anyone next to him. City, can we pick 2?

    Thanks RC. A bunch of fading star there, apart from Gavi, promising, and Foden – tempting. However, Arsenal already has its own Foden, who will soon be better than any name on your list. Why spend cash just to get a “name”. Charlie Patino. That’s the boy.

    The game of fantasy Supermarket Sweep is fun, and a good idea for a post. I just feel that every time we lust for bought glory, we show disrespect and disloyalty to our own.

    Look out too for Marcelo Flores and Oulad-M’Hand to come through soon in the same area of the pitch. Have you seen them?

  7. Pete the Thirst says:

    Is Gilberto still available?

    @Maxwell M’Hand deserves to make it purely for the name.

  8. Mohlanka Molapo says:

    I would choose the Brighton Malian MF player.

    Mohlanka – you mean Bissouma.

    @Maxwell – I have not seen Patino play but rumour has it that he is quite good just like they say Azeez is really good…My idea was just to have a post up and given the performance of Pogba yesterday, the sales of Newcastle, the post writing came up naturally but I do agree that it is Fantasy Supermarket 🙂

    Is there not a basic flaw in the question?

    What have we seen in Partey in the last year that would make anyone think that he is “the ” player that we need to find a partner for?

    All the hype about how wonderful he is and yet we have seen nothing to justify the hype.

  21. RC78 says:

    It is just that Edu and Arteta basically said that their starting double pivot is Partey-Xhaka

  22. Kyalo Mũsyĩmi says:

    jjgsol I agree with you
