Neither use nor ornament to us. Move him on and put the money towards a new centre half.

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.

Rather see him get a game than Besic like.

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.

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

it does my head in when people slag off a player as not good enough when playing in their first few matches after a serious long term injury

done so many times on here - already this season with besic and mccarthy's whipping is coming up soon if he can get a game

McCarthy's whipping came a long time ago, what we're seeing now is the continuation of it. In a side lacking in balls and character the last thing you need is another spineless body hiding from the football in the middle of the park.

yeah for me seems your frustration is with the team and the situation rather than the player. mccarthy's got some limitations and maybe we'll find he won't recover from this injury. on his day hes a decent player capable of covering a lot of ground and pressing all over the park who played injured for a long time so for me at least deserves a chance to get back fit and be part of the squad before being written off as useless/spineless etc.

No. Just to be clear. My issue is with McCarthy.

Not mine, my issue is the team, manager, situation etc.

got no time for slagging off EFC players on their way back to fitness whatever their strengths/weaknesses are

Not sure where you get this from. He's been on his way back to fitness for the past three years and when he does play he takes no responsibility and thinks it's okay to just chase after the ball like a Jack Russell in the park.

Complete nothing player and at this moment in time we need players who want to stand up and be counted.

More expert medical opinion from Roy Keane - enjoy!

Roy Keane believes that Everton need to take responsibility for James McCarthy's injury problems, saying they "have to look at what they are doing themselves".

McCarthy is with the Republic of Ireland squad for their crucial World Cup Qualifiers against Moldova and Wales, despite not having played at all for Everton this season.

Club and country have consistently disagreed over McCarthy's injury problems in recent months, but Ireland assistant manager Keane is clear on where he feels the blame lies.

Keane said: "James seems to be getting a lot of injuries at Everton so I don't think we've anything to be worried about in terms of how much we push James.

"The medical staff are overseeing all of it and are in contact with Everton and all their scientists. I think they've more scientists involved than there needs to be.

"I always think clubs, as much as they look at what we're doing, they certainly have to have look at what they are doing themselves. But James seems pretty upbeat and we're glad to have him here."

McCarthy has recently been struggling with a persistent knee injury, but on Monday, Ireland manager Martin O'Neill refused to rule him out of the upcoming Qualifiers, starting with their game at home to Moldova, live on Sky Sports Football from 7:15pm on Friday.

Keane did admit that the midfielder cannot train fully, and said: "James joined in today, he probably did about 70% of what the other players would have done.

"I spoke to him and he seemed to be ok. We don't want him to over-do it but at some stage you've got to join in, get involved and play some sort of 11vs11 if you can."

Keane appeared to be exasperated with McCarthy's inability to train fully. When asked about the player's workload, he repeated that McCarthy could only do "a little bit" each day, before adding "then he can go back to Everton and we'll see how their scientists deal with it."

It is currently unclear whether McCarthy, who has 41 caps, will be fit for the Moldova game on Friday, with O'Neill saying that they are evaluating his situation on a "day-by-day" basis.

Ireland are currently one place and one point behind Wales, who occupy the play-off spot in Group D with two matches remaining.
Or maybe McCarthy is just an injury prone footballer and all round soft bloke.

The bloke has some mental issues he needs to overcome before he should be allowed near another professional football club. Being binned from Man U should be first on his list of things to cleanse.

He does have a slight point though.

Whereas Morgan offers a lot more ?

He used to. Now he’s turned into a McCarthy clone.
