Solid today. But if/when he gets fitter there’s clearly a player there.

Thought that he was excellent today. Very calm on the ball. Reminiscent of Cabaye at times.

Played well. Looked shattered when he was subbed, but the 80 minutes will hopefully do him the world of good.

He and Cahill are Roy type players. One can see why. They have experience, great organizers and can do what needs to be done expediently. Thought McCarthy’s shot was excellent. Liked the fact that he tried to score like that. We need shooters. Very few available. Roy is so shrewd. James McCarthy is a versatile midfielder and it is in midfield Palace totally outclassed Wham today.

Looked like a more competent version of McArthur but with a lot of venom going forward. Need him starting IMO

Very unfair on McArthur who I personally thought was MOTM today.

Him and McArthur were excellent I thought. The central midfield 3 won the game for us.

Needed to see him start a PL games to see what we've got and certainly looked useful today. Didn't really miss Luka today - even from the spot.
I think there is a genuine decision for Roy to make. Being Manchester City next we play a different system of course.

Agreed but he had tired a before that...probably should have come off 15 mins prior to when he did.

I agree. Won everything in the middle and totally nullified WHU.

Our midfield certainly is a tough one.

For the City game, can't help but feel we need Luka but then again I honestly don't think he forms part of our best 11 right now!

McCarthy definitely should play.

We still look better with Luka.
He was ok but he needs games.
We still look better with Andros in the team, width and pace.

Andros' return to form from the bench at least is a positive. Strength from the bench at last. Hopefully he can get back to his best and force his way back in. I much prefer Wilf on the left.

Impossible to judge McCarthy until he is really fit but today, admittedly against a side who didn't press too hard, our midfield had an impressive assurance in its build up play. It's nice to know that, at the very least, McCarthy will be an able option for us in midfield. It's starting to look as if the £11-12M we spent on Cahill, Ayew and McCarthy was very shrewd expenditure, even if not obviously inspiring. If only we had landed a truly pacy striker.

We dominated the midfield today and he started. No coincidence. Definitely not fully fit though. Looks a quality signing and clearly his relationship with Sir Jimmy Mac pays dividends.

Hasn't got an exotic name so is unlikely to be given any credit FYI

I know it’s a few years ago but I wonder if it helped that the 2 James’ played together at Hamilton & Wigan?
