far more useful post than posters just copying and pasting stats from a website.

Interesting perspective of it, I cant recall too many high up field ones in the last 5 or 10 games, the majority seem to be around the half way line or at least those are the ones that spring to my mind.

 

 

He got caught v burnley got a foot in and they countered instantly  not entirely his fault , but I feel sometimes he needs to understand when to cover and when to press but like I said his teamates are way to passive which results in him venturing to much at times to make up for them, I quite like him and hopes he's here for the long run probably the most difficult role on the pitch other than keeper or lone cf

I too think he gets a rough ride. He's nowhere near the finished article and at 26, maybe he never will be. But his energy is badly missed in the middle when we don't have it. 

He needs Luiz and Grealish to remain constantly open for him with the easy pass.

I think he will be a valuable asset for years to come because he reads the game so well. Luiz, Nakamba and McGinn should be a really good midfield three.

We are a better team with him in it purely because we don't have another option, he is half decent at getting a foot in and breaking up play but his first touch is truly shocking! And his passing is very limited, even after he breaks up play it seems the ball quite often is back with the opposition within a few seconds.

Rather have his energy in midfield than Drinkwater who isn’t match fit and Hourihane who offers very little apart from set pieces.

Heart attack on the ball at times but very solid today. 

Will never be dropped if he plays like that on a consistent basis.

The best I’ve seen him play for us. 

Agreed, broke it up and played it simple. Was noticeable that he played in much more of a box to box role too. He will be crucial if we want to stay up.

Looks like he is back to the player at the start of the season.

Massive news for us.

I think Drinkwater brought the best out in him but nobody will acknowledge that on here.

MN has watching McGinn with some of his back to other players action. Marshalled the midfield well and managed to bring the ball out of tight areas well. I thought he worked well with Drinkwater and Luiz when he came on tbh
