    Back with Cardiff just before they sacked their manager. Couldn't play for them yesterday because apparently the paperwork hadn't been completed (too busy compiling the manager's P45). Excellent player. Hope he's given a chance by the new manager.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    They gotta wait for FIFA to lift their transfer embargo. By right FIFA shouldn't because if they weren't in danger of relegation and desperate for new players they wouldn't have payed Nantes the first installment for Emiliano Sala after years of refusing.

    They had two transfer embargoes, one from the EFL and one from FIFA.

    Why did he go out on loan in the first place?

    Seemed a regular with Cardiff last year, so to then drop a division for a loan move is a bit unusual

    Was prone to mistakes at Cardiff last season so they decided to send him out a year for experience - basically let him make the mistakes for some other team and see if he can cut them out of his game.

    This season Cardiff have been fairly awful and McGuinness has been excellent so it makes sense from their point of view to call him back.

    McGuinness is one that goes under the radar in Ireland because we have loads of young centre backs, but he was highly regarded in England from a young age and they were disappointed that he went with us back when he did. A combination of a big physical centre back and the footballing skills he was taught at Arsenal mean he's still a very promising talent, especially if he has now cut out the lapses in concentration that were in his game previously.

  8. Thanks From:

    Looks to have impressed on his return with an emphatic MOTM poll (Robinson second is encouraging also)…
