Does anyone know how far away James McCarthy is from being fit? Will be interesting to see if he has a role to play?

Agree0 Disagree0

I read December. And frankly he isn't good enough. Sure the old debate because he gives everything but he's still just not good enough. I can see him heading off next summer.

myteamsbetter are u for real mate? he is our best all round cm when fit! walks into the team.

14 Aug 2018 19:45:46
He would limp into the team, but agree he is better than most we have.

He might have to hop in Smit666! He is a half decent player but looked so much better when with Barry who was the classier of the two. I am hoping Shneids looks better now he has Richarlison one side, Walcott the other and Gueye to support him. Added to which, Tom Davies should be able to step up this season and I reckon Kieran Dowell is almost ready for some games.

I'd also add that he is a combative midfielder who has no end product. A screamer every 24 months and a thuggish hatchet job when out of possession, of which he is reliable to give the ball away more than most too. An "all round midfielder" is just that. Goals, assists, defensive duties, free kicks, pens, creativity. I'd say he doesn't even get a mark on some of those categories.
That liverpool game has really cast him in a false light. We all loved it because no one else on the pitch looked like they have a monkies.

And Kante is one of the best defensive mids in the league and provides, no assist, no goals, no free kicks and no penalties.
What is an all round midfielder?
You can't have 2 box to box midfielders in a team.

McCarthy plays the Gana role as good, if not better when he's fit.

An all round midfielder must be like Roy of the Rovers. He can do everything better than everyone else on the pitch.

McCarthy is very good at what he does and I agree with Smit he’s probably the best defensive midfielder we have.

The broken leg he suffered was because of his commitment and reading of the game to cover defenders. Not too many midfielders in world football would be able to recover and make that last ditch tackle.

Better than Gana? Hahahahajaja you are funny.
