I'll admit I'm listening to an NSNO podcast whilst catching up on threads, so sorry for resurrecting this.

Who wouldn't have McCarthy in the team ahead of Schneiderlin at this point?

Morgs averageness is making me fondly remember a fit McCarthy who at least did a better job of harrying people!

Schneiderlin is atrocious at the moment, but I don't think replacing him with McCarthy could help.
McCarthy is a poor man's Gana. Two similar players with no creativity is not a good idea.

We should be trying Klaassen, Davies, etc. paired up w/ Gana or Schneiderlin to shake things up.  Freaking McCarthy is the furthest thing from my mind, getting more crab-like.

He tried Davies-Gana pair against Chelsea. That was the worst Davies' game this season.

I take the point that McCarthy is more like Gana. My point was also based around the thinking that if Schneiderlin is not going to offer any creativity, would we not be better off playing (again, if fit) McCarthy because at least he generally does better at stopping the opposition scoring. I think Morgan has been less than directly culpable in many goals conceded this season.

Schneiderlin on his game was and will be better but for the moment something is wrong with him.

Yeah, talking about the defence you‘re probably right.  But that would make our toothless attack even worse.

 I feel depressed after discussing  these marvelous options  :(

im ashamed to say this, (especially going on how McCarthy has played during the Martinez era)

WE fucking miss him, This season i'd rather have McCarthy playing than MS.

He goes forwards more than MS, he's more combative, he's not a pussy who just goes in late for the ball, he can actually tackle and jockey players with out the need of sliding in.

Fucking hell
