Again conclusions should be tentative as three years ago we were all pulling ourselves to ecstasy over James McCarthy.

Almost all of us. :)

He reminds me of Eddie Izzard because he has legs and arms. I have no clue what we are doing here.

And he looks like he could run 50 marathons in 50 days.

Love the fact he was playing in black boots.

Racist!

So with that trajectory we can expect him to make 38 key passes on the last day of the season :smug:

The numbers don't lie.

He's commenting on shit Americanisms, or, complicated rules in our sport. Personally I don't mind who takes part in sport provided they don't start to try take over it. Soccer, The half, calling attack offence, the list is long and getting longer. Keep it in America unless it's worth sharing. No disrespects to the American blues, it's a generality and was fair comment from @blue1948

There are few words more British than "soccer", it's classic public school slang from the 19th century playing fields. c.f. "rugger".

"Half" as in "centrehalf" (but also left half and right half) comes from the classic English 2-3-5 system (the one before WM, it's also where the slightly odd numbering of shirts comes from.

Happy to be proved wrong if someone can show me evidence that they called the signing a master stroke at the time. If they did they get my utmost respect.

If I call every new signing a masterstroke, will I have your respect then? :)
