See Mccarthy has started again that's the last few games.

McCarthy getting stuck in in the first 15mins too.

For the money still think it would be the wrong way to go. St Juste would be a far better signing or some one of that ilk. We're on verge of maybe seeing VVD becoming EPL's most expensive defender. Would rather we pursue that route. Fair play to McCarthy, on his day he can look like a vintage Carrick but don't see him as next level material even if he was relatively affordable.

I'm in a similar boat to you daviebhoy. Like Sinclair, I'm cautious about McCarthy. They both showed great promise and ability but for one reason or another their careers came to a bit of a stall. Like Sinclair, I think if McCarthy came in he could find his mojo. He's starting to find gis feet again now though and could well be back in the plans. If I were Koeman I'd have McCarthy in there alongside Gueye personally. I think McCarthy would improve us if we got him in on a cut price deal and would like to see him in the hoops, but especially with the emergence of Armstrong I'm not sure he's quite the priority. I'd personally go for St. Juste over McCarthy too. Bit more defensive, more potential imo and could play at CB too.

Showing my ignorance here but don't know anything about the boy st juste is he any good who does he play for and where are yous watching him.

Plays in Holland with Heereven (sp) Haven't seen all that much of him myself but have friends in Holland who have raved about him over last year.

I realise he can play both but is he not more of a natural CB than a CDM?
20 Dec 2016 13:54:16
He plays centre back more often Tompo, looking for a smaller squad it's important to have that versatility though. But think along the lines of Wanyama in that he's more than good enough to play CDM, that's what I'd look to do, and have him play CB when need be. We've only had a tedious link to him anyway so there's probably nothing in it.
