srsmithusa: “Looks like McGinn and Grealish are gonna make a brilliant attacking midfield pair.”

Michelsen: “McGinn’s delivery is just excellent. Love it.”

@TheHolteTweets: “McGinn has had a massive impact on the way we move the ball from midfield, Jack has somebody to keep up with him now. What a signing.”

@JB888: “McGinn aside, this has been another terrible display. No control, lack of ideas and method, too many long balls, and a quite ridiculous defensive selection. Frustrating but predictable.”

@VillaHutton: “Great win, hard fought. Positives and negatives but McGinn and Grealish great as always.”

@tonymartin82211: Thanks @HibsOfficial for sending us a shining star...What a superb debut. Villa Park loves him”

@ditlewis: “Two words - John McGinn. Probably the best home debut of a Villa player I’ve ever seen - we’ve signed an absolute cracker.”

@VillaMarkPGH: “McGinn is going to terrorize opposition midfields all season. Absolute treat to watch.”
