It’s a great day isn’t it Vital Villans? The transfer window has closed, we’ve kept our best players and we’ve brought in a top keeper plus this very good midfielder as well.
The Villa Report pointed out the kind words from Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers: “It’s a great move for him (McGinn), disappointment for us of course. But he is joining another illustrious club with a great history and wonderful training facilities and a good manager and an opportunity to go play in England.” [sunday herald] #avfc pic.twitter.com/bSH1tdfQ9q

So I went and looked at http://www.heraldscotland.com and Rodgers waxes lyrical about the player we managed to grab from under their noses.
In fact, pretty much everyone I’ve looked at talking about John McGinn is so impressed with him I doubt there is much wax left to be lyrical with.
Brendan Rodgers said: “It’s a great move for him, disappointment for us of course. But he is joining another illustrious club with a great history and wonderful training facilities and a good manager and an opportunity to go play in England.”
He goes on to say the player has developed well over the last few years and at 23 points out he’s at his prime.
“He is very committed to his profession and a very good player. I wish him all the very best.”
Steve Bruce is chuffed to have him, he told the press today he didn’t think a month ago we would have a chance to compete with Celtic, but with the new owners, it has all changed. He says he is a bit different to what we already have in midfield and he is sure he will be a big favourite. “Naturally left-footed, he’s big and strong, can score a goal, he gets about the pitch, tackles people, does all the things a midfielder player of today can do.”
Also in The Herald Scotland Alan Stubbs talks about McGinn saying he’s the “snip of this transfer window.”
Dan1 and Dan2 of The Villa View talk about him as well.
And so onto my expertise and precise analysis of this purchase.
He sounds good.
So there you go.
