His ball control is now better than his skill value shows. I think 83 would be the right number. His physical abilities have also changed and it reflected on his style of play. His movement and holding of the ball show he became more strong. I also think we should revise his long pass, it's underestimated. 75-77 - this is the value.
I dont think his agility dropped, it should be near 79-81. Can't understand the choice of side in set. He is playing wide both left and right flanks. In conclusion:

Foot: R
Side: B

Height: 180
Weight: 72
Balance: 79
Dribble Accuracy: 83
Agility: 80
Long Pass Accuracy: 77
Long Pass Speed: 78

His all round play has improved since these stats, it really has. Slight improvements in about 13 different just at a glance is what I see. Balance, response, overall passing and team work just to kick thing's off.

Think his mentality is fine the way it is, suits him perfectly. Other than that, great.

He doesn't really go to the left ever. He's always center and if he drifts or dribbles it's to the right of the midfield most of the time.

Its high time Mccarthy got an upgrade, one of Wigan's most influential players this year.

He's been that way for about 2 seasons now. I don't think he's much better than OP.

James McCarthy, DM/CB/LB/LWB, Wigan Athletic

Featuring at Centre-Back and Left Wing Back in Roberto Martinez' 3-5-2 formation, McCarthy handled himself with a certain guile and broody toughness (at the age of 22) that is indicative of a truly special player.

He's played as a DMF and a Sweeper but never as a left back or left wing back. At least not for Wigan. His main position is CMF.

He's definitely never played as a left back.

These stats don't really give justice to the role McCarthy plays at the club tbh. Here is a conversation I had with Vranny that pretty much what I think of him. He was amazing for us last year (probably our best player behind Coleman) and I was quite surprised how well he fit into the system so seamlessly. He really is an all-round midfielder and despite playing a fairly restricted role last season he was able to create a fair amount of chances. I'd probably have him on something like this for now:

Position to DM
DEF: 71/72
DA: 80/81
RES: 82/83
DS: 79/80
BB: 79
STA: 88/89/90
AGG: 72
Condition: 8?

Still not sure on agilty. Could easily see a raise in mentality, and probably teamwork, in the future. I don't remember him having more than 5 shots all season so no idea on shooting. I doubt he'll ever play SMF or AMF for us too.

I think DA 80/81 would work for him. Also you're probably right with Agility at high greens. I don't tend to be great at rating that particular attribute.

Btw do you have any opinions on John Stones? I've done a rough set for him as a reply to his topic and I'd be great if you could share some of your thoughts.

Also going to try and give Naismith's set a look over in the near future as he's been dynamite since played centrally, but might save it 'til the end of the season.

Based on his season at Everton you're right, he could definitely have condition: 8, probably been our most consistent player this season.

My main concern with DA is that he is level with Barry (though I rate him at 83), its something I'll keep a closer eye on but I'm not sure he needs more than an 80/81 or so. Barry is brilliant at dribbling his way out of situations with little feints and close control, not seen McCarthy at that same level even though he is more than competent.

His body balance is something I've been unsure of too, he is a very aggressive player though so I do think it might be a case of his aggressive style rather than actual strength/balance. I've seen him knocked off the ball a few times by people rated low yellows but also win a lot of physical contests too. I think he is really similar to Vidal who also is aggressive and not overly strong, he's rated at 80.

I'm not great with positions on PSD but I'd say he'd maybe be better registered as a DM, its his job to cover the full-backs when they bomb forward most of the time. I'm not too sure though.

I'll keep a close eye on him in the next game.

I think he's Defence value can come up too, though I'm not sure on what exact number. Certainly should be below Barry's, but could sit somewhere from 69-73.

He definitely needs a higher Stamina value though. I'd be giving him 88 for the moment, but it could probably go even higher (I also feel like Coleman could use a slight raise, though his excellent game against Man U could be tainting my thoughts). Also a potential candidate for Condition: 8 because of his insane fitness levels and consistent performances.

I've got similar thoughts to you on his Response. Absolutely full of energy when the opposition has the ball and is constantly looking to pressure the ball carrier, though that obviously includes the odd poorly timed challenge.

On Agility & DA I could envision slight drops, but at the same time I wouldn't be unhappy if he kept his current or similar values. Certainly has a bit of class for a DM when he decides to venture forward.

Hard for me to comment on his shooting when I can only really remember one or two scuffed efforts from him.

Could be low 70's for Aggression. Not sure if we deserves either of the dribbling special abilities, though might make sense to keep them following a decrease in aggression. Tends to get forward on the ball, rather than off it for sure.

Do you reckon he could use a raise in body balance btw? I feel like he shows more presence than BB: 78 implies, though I imagine his aggressive style of defending could be tricking me into thinking this.

P.S. Not sure if he should be a defensive CM or balanced DM to replicate him in game either.

I'm looking to update my Everton team and was wondering if you've got any ideas for McCarthy. I think he's a much more rounded player than he has shown at Everton, here he generally just shows his defensive qualities with a dash forward every now and then. The set on PSD now just doesn't replicate the sort of player he is for Everton.

I actually think his ball winning skills are very, very good. Probably in the 70's (easily above Ramsey imo for instance), he is a very precise tackler even if he flies in every now and then. What is most impressive is his response though, the amount of times he reacts to a loose ball from midfield and starts an attack is really impressive, something like an 82/83 to me. His qualities are quite similar to Fernandinho.

He has an incredible engine, not a lot of difference in energy levels between him Coleman and Baines so high 80's at least. I might start looking at him a bit closer but I also think dribble accuracy could come down a tad and agility looks no higher than high greens from what I remember. Things like aggression, dribble speed and maybe shooting could come down because he hasn't shown enough.

Have you got any thoughts on a set?
