    Nominated (along with Simon Cox) for League One Player of the Month award for February - https://www.efl.com/news/2019/march/...h-nominations/

    Aiden McGeady (Sunderland) - midfielder
    Four goals in six games for the Irishman who continues to treat League One to his skills. Most impressive is his consistency as they were spread over five games, with the highlight being a sumptuous free-kick at Bristol Rovers.
    A penny for Mick's thoughts. I guess we'll know tomorrow.

I read somewhere that he played in a 4-3-3 pretty regularly for Spartak. Whether he had or hadn't, surely he's experienced enough to just ask the manager/coaches for a bit more instruction. I'm a big McGeady fan but I thought he sounded like he was absolving himself of any personal responsibility.
    Interesting. I only watched the programme after your comments on that point, and when I watched it, I didn't think it came across too bad at all to be honest.
    I know he's got a rep as being confrontational with coaches and managers too. He essentially had carte blanche at Spartak, he had no defensive responsibilities. They didn't play with an out and out striker sometimes, in that they played with three attackers: Ari, McGeady, Weilliton all had attacking roles.
    Sometimes the 3 were more of a 2 behind the 1. Often McGeady was the 1 behind 2 more advanced attackers.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    There was also this interview which would appear contradictory - https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/spor...s-4-3-14551719

    Only spotted now that McGeady, Dunne and Ronan Curtis are all Wembley bound as Sunderland play Portsmouth in the EFL Trophy final on the 31st March. All three started their respective semi finals over the past couple of weeks.
