Well fecking done lad! Saved us with that brilliant header!

Must have been such a hard debut for him, thrown right in there.

I think he did better defensively than any Blackett performance so far tbh.

Great début, could we see more of him throughout the season?
I'd prefer the experienced players like Jones would stay fit for more than a match at a time, but at least we know McNair can do well for us if we have to turn to him.

It was almost like Vidic's goal against Bayern but the other way around.

Fine performance and that clearing header would've made any world class CB proud.

Great debut. Both of the CBs who have been handed debut have shown good skills and good head. Really happy for him.

Hats off to the lad for that clearance!

Great awareness of where the West Ham players were.

And he appeared not to injure himself, despite landing on the ground!

Have the same opinion. Very positive performance from McNair. He certainly didn´t look like he´s just 19 years of age.

He handled a very difficult match very well, fair play to him. And he didn't get injured which is great.

Absolutely delighted for the kid, a very impressive debut. Take a bow, son, that clearance was absolutely phenomenal!

Should he start our next game irrespective of who is fit?

Looked a lot more assured in defence than Blackett has been IMO. That header basically won the game for us!

I was very impressed by his composure today. You could hardly pick a more pressurised game to play in but he handled it well. West Ham resorted to long ball tactics and strength against us late on but he held firm. At least it's reassuring to know we have some really promising young central defenders who can step in if our other young defenders keep getting injured. His long term future may be here at the expense of them.

Very true. Now let's just hope that the fans stay patient with him (and Blackett for that matter,) as he goes through the inevitable ebbs in form that are sure to happen to any young player. Handled correctly, and with proper development (and is there anybody better than LVG for that?) we could have two great young British talents on our hands.

Well done to the lad. His debut couldn't have been harder with us playing with 10 men for 30 or so minutes and especially West Ham's physicality and height. He can be proud of his performance.

Great game from young McNair today, especially in the last 20 odd minutes when West Ham really put the pressure on us. That Vidic-esque header near the end was fantastic. Great début for the lad.

I wonder if Fergie would have thrown him into the deep end today? Or go the conservative route and play Fletcher instead.

Great debut though, very composed and gave his best.

I very much doubt Ferguson would have played him today.
