I seem to recall Jags being a bit of a midfielder (right back, even) before settling for the CB role

Let's stop trying to find reasons for why he's a spineless footballer. He's not a frustrated centre half he's just a limited injury prone midfielder with no balls.

Don't think either of them are good enough to be honest.

As a 4th choice centre mid I think McCarthy is.

Besic is completely useless.

McCarthy is never fit therefore he's not a 4th choice centre midfielder. He's No 1 in the treatment room and very expensive waste of time.

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.

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.

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.

Wouldn't have McCarthy anywhere near the team, regardless of our current predicament.
