I always believed in Doug. In someways the biggest bonus is McGinn being rejuvenated, I thought he was done but he has been exceptional under Emery. Not needing to replace him is a big deal for us.

I'd like us to sign another bruiser in midfield though. He's got that physical side to outwrestle the opposition and unsettle them, whereas everyone else we've got is a bit more lightweight. We'd struggle to replace that when he's injured.

This season he has become the player I think we all hoped he would be when we signed him.

Whilst you could argue the bloke with the alice band outgrew us too fast, Doug has actually grown in sync with us since joining, we could give him the time and games at the stage he needed them and may not have got elsewhere, and now we're both reaping the benefits of him putting it all together.

Would say the same about Ramsey too.
