We saw glimpses of this on Saturday. Is it possible that a long injury in your mid to late twenties can prolong your career as it gives your body a break and defers burn out of your knees and other parts of your legs?

I'm sure McCarthy will get his chance again if he stays fit and gets games.
Could you actually provide them please? Because I thought I quoted all of his comments.

I was in favour of getting him, and thought Ayew and Cahill were bad buys so probably need to be ignored.
On Saturday, of our central midfielders he had the best pass completion, also attempted more passes than Kouyate. No-one made more tackles than him, joint with Ward and Ayew and all 3 CMs made 1 intercpetion.

McArthur was by far the busiest of our CMs and with the 2 week break should be starting against Man City but i think it is a real toss up between Kouyate and McCarthy as to who should give way (assuming someone does) to Luka. I would be tempted to keep McCarthy in as long as he came through the 80 without issue.

Depends on th einjuries would be my guess. The fact his was a leg break rather than a ligament/muscle injury might mean he can play a bit longer into his 30s but that is guesswork.

An enforced break can be good for the body, but also for the mind in terms of maturing and desire.

I have said it before Micheal Hughes played his best football of his career for us well into his 30s.

I am convinced the enforced break in his career made him realize how lucky it is to be a footballer and also gave him perspective on professional football itself.

He came back with hunger, fitness extended and better reading of the game.

Sometimes, particularly with knee, ankle, pelvis and back issues you are never again at peak fitness, but McArthy broke his leg? A clean break and a full heal should not make any long lasting difference.

Let's see. He could be a steal, he could be a Wilshere. I hope the former

There was one particular moment when he was in the centre about half way inside the WHU half and he made a fast directly forward pass on the ground to the edge of the box, which went straight to our player. It was a refreshing piece of directness that I hadn't seen much recently. He seems to have a good degree of footballing intelligence and if he stay fit will be a real addition. If, of course.

Yup, and he was in a decent position to recieve the ball just outside the box for a decent shot that was saved which we also miss from midfield.
