I keep thinking of this:

He's either criminally out of shape or he's phoning it in. Or both. No wonder Luiz was pissed off.

That clip is just unnaceptable. Im presuming (and fucking hoping) that its just down to him being unfit and brought back too soon. Even that theory comes with downsides towards the management though.

Not giving him a pass at all but I do wonder if McGinn was just rushed back and he just never was able to get properly fit again because of the injury. He's been a huge disappointment but he's also never struck me, any of us, or Hibs fans as the kind of player to just coast or give up. There is something else at play that's led to the version we are seeing right now.

The state on him is shocking but I blame the management more than the player.

Lest we forget, Drinkwater was brought in as a like for like replacement on the safe assumption that SJM might be out for virtually the whole season.

He was clearly less match fit than the rest of the players, joining mid season. That factor should have been removed, since none of them are now match fit, and we should have got him in good shape to be a useful resource for us. Instead Dean is giving it the hard man act and not even putting him on the bench, while moaning about 5 subs and playing a fat John McGinn. Itís the kind of rank amateur, cut your nose off to spite your face shite that took us down the first time.

You canít blame the management for a professional footballer letting himself go and becoming a lard arse.  You can blame them for thinking itís a good idea to bring him into vital PL games looking like said lard arse.

What's the betting McGinn is in the starting eleven today? Love him as a player when he's on song, but nobody should be untouchable.
The shape he's returned in post-lockdown, and the effort he's putting into matches (Liverpool aside - Thought he played quite well in that game), he should be nowhere near the matchday squad - Especially after that showing against Man Utd.

It was reported that he was carrying an injury before the major one and yet he was kept in the team. Heís not been managed at all well this season

As I put in the Smith thread , he suffered another stress fracture before we where due to play Chelsea before the Covid break.He couldnt train during lockdown  he has been thrown in with hardly any training that's why he looks so off the pace

Heíll be off Iíd imagine to Leicester. Rodgers was desperate for him at Celtic and I think heíd be perfect for a club like Leicester with European football. Wouldnít even need to move house. Championship with Villa or Champions League with Leicester? Not a tough decision is it really.

The management team can be blamed for a lot of things this season but the personal condition and fitness of McGinn isnít one of them. Heís got to take a lot of the responsibility for that

He should.

But why arenít our fitness people checking on him daily? Maybe the BMI is going up, maybe weight, stamina. I donít know. It just seems like he rocked back up at BMH and said ďHi everyone, here I amĒ.

I do agree though the doesnít seem like one of the players who would just switch off and give up, so yeah, maybe there is more than meets the eye here. For Tyrone Mings to be having a go at him is ironic in the extreme.

Iím afraid I donít agree, if he reported an injury and said he wanted to play through it, and then his performance noticeably dipped, and he then picked up a more serious injury. Thatís poor management, he shouldnít have been given the choice.

Interesting. So I guess in normal circumstances he'd have been ruled out for the season. I assume with the lockdown he simply couldn't do any rehab at training ground for two months.

He's miles off the pace and shouldn't be starting. I really doubt anyone is going to come in with 20m + bids. Remember he did sign a new deal last August.

I doubt he will go for big money if he is still recovering from a very nasty injury.
He might actually stay.
