Many did

Love the fact he was playing in black boots.

Me too, i'm a bit disappointed Ross didn't continue from pre-season in his black boots, Ithink they look great...black is the new bright yellow!

reading between the lines of Ron's post-match comments I think Gueye is going to be his go-to man in midfield next to Barry, ahead of McCarthy. Fair enough. He deserves to stay in the team after that showing.

I wonder if his appearance at right wing back suggests McCarthy is going to be a utility man for the new manager.

I've said for a while I think McCarthy's best position is probably right back. He's sound defensively with jockeying his man and tackling and under Koeman he won't be encouraged to get forward as much as under Martinez. That's not to say he's better than Coleman but I think he could do a job if needed.

McCarthy at right back is as bonkers as playing Baines in defensive midfield.

Never cross streams.

Not so sure. I remember Snodin reverting to right back and did very well. It's the easiest position on the pitch.

Our fullbacks are all about getting forward and joining with attacks.  McCarthy gets a nosebleed if he crosses the halfway line.

Fixed.

Well that's it for McCarthy.

And by the way, every one of you are horrible racists except me.

I'll do some more 21st century virtue signaling later.

To be fair, in what world does Gana remind someone of Pienaar? They have none of the same skills, they are both short and black - only thing even close to being similar.
The way Gueye would position his body to win the ball, essentially coming round the side and sticking his arse into the opponent, was similar to how Pienaar and Arteta (and Barry) would win the ball and get free kicks.

Arteta and Barry might be a better comparison due to his position, but his industry and work rate was definitely most similar to Pienaar's in recent years.

I like that (almost) everyone slaughters Martinez as an awful manager but then suggests we play with almost the exact same style/shape/personnel (just swapping Gueye and McCarthy)
