A section of Aston Villa fans were blown away by the stunning performance of John McGinn in their 2-1 win against Rotherham at the New York Stadium on Wednesday night.

Supporters took to Twitter after the game to lavish praise on the Scotland international, who played a key role in an inspired second-half performance that saw the 10 men of Villa come from behind to earn all three points.

The Daisy Cutter has rounded up a selection of tweets from Aston Villa fans below:

At least Steve Bruce did something right during his spell at Villa Park. McGinn was a great signing in the summer and Villa fans should be thankful that Celtic did not beat them to his signature.


McGinn was definitely Aston Villa’s best player against Rotherham. Jack Grealish was superb in the second-half as well as the former Hibernian midfielder, but we believe that these fans have made the right choice here.

After such a hard-earned win, it is great to see so many players getting praise from fans as well as McGinn. It just shows that it was a complete team performance by the Villans to get a win despite being a goal down, and a man down, at half-time. Many other teams in the division would have crumbled at that point.

He would do a better job than Theresa May, that’s for sure!
