Paddy McNair. Just by saying his name, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking of a perceptive yet no-nonsense tackler. You're thinking about a man who excels at interceptions. You're thinking of passing as insistent as Roy Keane against Juventus in the 1998/1999 season. You think of the set piece ability of David Beckham, and the goalscoring ability of Paul Scholes. So when you see in the Mirror that he fancies a crack in midfield, you should absolutely not be worried.

As poor taste as they are, it's more just really, really tedious. That's in the Telegraph.
