That is why I brought up that it was the same case for a plethora of other players. Granted, each with a small sample size.

But it is hardly a coincidence that he improved the possession and team GF for just about every player he played with. However, in many cases team GA also went up. Not in the case of McDonagh though where both players were better together than apart in all aspects.
