McGinn seemed to lose his rag a bit after that. Understandable I suppose, but he looked in danger of getting himself sent off at one point.

I usually have a seemingly weekly rant about McGinns latest great match but let himself down with a yellow card..

However this time (and I think something I noticed upon particularly in championship , sometimes Prem) Ginny was so aggrieved not to have had a blatant foul maybe even red card vs Maguire that in his frustration he did do quite a fantastic trip on Bruno and was cautioned.

We're only human and Mike Dean had also earlier already penalised a perfectly great tackle/ interception by McGinn when we won ball high up the pitch and would be away for an attack on goal and yet Dean deems foul against.

Basically sometimes the culminating fouling against McGinn sees him become an aggressor and does his own back as such leading to yellow cards. Yes his combative style, nature and sometimes reckless ways contribute but the officials haven't helped him out many a time with degree of fairness.

He then also gets a reputation. He can't win. Most yellow cards by any player in Prem league last season
Has 2 yellow already.

Yesterday it was outrageous  the lazy and cynical foul by Maguire not penalised by McGinn excellent heading ball past him and Maguire blocks of illegally by fouling SJM he would be through and away to goal.

For next minutes as Mike Dean dismisses it Ginny is saying foul that's a foul and it was.
It could even be red yet its left him frustrated by poor officiating
Unbelievable

In short vs Man Utd  brilliant!
We all enjoyed a great performance by McGinn yesterday despite a booking his energy , enthusiasm,  passing , drive and running were a delight.

And yes a good old boot to Bruno too for the yellow is one I'll allow!

There was a bit in the first half where Greenwood broke from the centre-circle and McGinn chased him down, but Greenwood ran across him, basically preventing him making a tackle (or face being booked), but rather than back off, meatball ran around the wrong side of him to make an excellent block from the 'wrong' side.  It was a brilliant piece of defensive work, against a very quick forward, but also the sort of thing you only see from him when he's 100% fit and 'on it'.  It bodes well for the coming weeks!

He is the proverbial heart beat of the team when hes on form. I maintain to this day, that in that 10 game promotion run, despite the greasy one getting all the plaudits, McGinn was just as influential. I agree that is the main man at the moment, amongst a shitload of main men. Being part of a three defo suits him, box to box

It was, and I screaming at him to hack him down as well.

Agreed, this was a wonderful play. He managed not to give a foul away and then blocked the ball. I am glad you brought this play up!
