Dean Smith saying McGinn “would”  love to be back for the Cup Final and he is running on grass with no pain but also said he “would” love to be back for all big games.

Sky Sports News presenting it as McGinn “could” be back for the Cup Final.
To be fair, Smith didn’t say he is running on grass.
He said he is running on the ‘g machine’ and could soon be out on the grass.

Isn't that what astronauts use? The centrifugal force gravity thingy?

Yes the prince was declaring his undying love for Tyrone during the interview from John.

Does anyone think we'll go back to 4 at the back when McGinn returns?

I do like the 3-4-3 system but McGinn and Luiz are are two best CMs and I think a third-man (Nakamba or Conor) would suit them better and allow them to break forward.

I think we may well and I think it would be a good thing if he can get back to his best quickly.

Wonder if he'll be involved for the final, I can see him getting a spot on the bench if the week goes well.

Can see him being back for the Chelsea game, another three weeks away.

Important not to put too much expectation on him although he will probably pop up with a key goal in the run in.

I hope not.  Use the two weeks to get his fitness up and make sure he's not rushed back.  Even with McGinn, I think Man City will have too much for us, and I'd hate him to have a setback and miss league games.  He could be the difference between staying up and going down.

Based on the performance of our midfield recently, I reckon as soon as John can stand on one leg he will be back in the middle with another two alongside him.
