Townsend forced through a move to palace, didn't he show great loyalty to Newcastle? H wasn't good enough for spurs or England.

Phillips could of forced q move past summer but didn't. Hes at a good age as well

Seriously  :o :o :o

He should have not only been in the squad, he should have been starting over Sterling

Townsend is a quality player and I'm gutted we didnt get him.

Not overly confident in Phillips, will support him and hope he does do well should he sign, from what I have seen there is a decent player in there and he can tackle and drive forward too.

Heres hoping

From what I've seen of him he has to be an improvement on Sess, McLean and Gardner out wide, no question.

I would still like another top quality winger to play on the other wing though, with Leko coming off the bench if required.
No no, no no no no, no no no no, no no shots on target.......

think he will fit in well can see why pulis wants him, he does work hard from what I've seen but does have an end product. definitely an upgrade on both Gardner and McClean.

If Townsend was good enough for England then spurs would of kept him not actively look to ship him out

Well he has to be a damn sight better than our wide options last season.

Pulis has spoken at length about getting the ball into the middle quickly and Phillips will aid that. I get the feeling Matt Phillips crossing for Rondon to head home maybe heard a few times next season!

He did well with QPR in the prem and has pace and some end product.
The championship is a 2 game a week slog which will suit some but not others.
Hopefully his best years are in front of him with us.

I think we need 3 genuine widemen. Phillips and Leko are two but I'd like to see McManaman sold and another brought in.
I suspect though we will still see McLean, Morrison and Gardner filling the wide spots on occasions.

I do hope you're wrong Adder.

Anything that prevents Craig Gardner starting as a winger (or at all) is an improvement.

I think Pulis will use Morrison or possibly Phillips behind Rondon.

I think MP will provide everything Pulis wants in a wide player.

He can beat a man with his pace
Puts fantastic crosses in
Provides assists
Tracks back and works hard
Provides an extra outlet on goal kicks, because of his size he should be out jumping fullbacks, instead of asking Dawson too do it

Capable of taking set pieces, or if we can get another quality wide man in, would provide another big presence in the box.

Ticks every box for me, as everyone says, it's an upgrade on what we've had at a decent price.

Not sure what you mean , but you seem to be suggesting that he is taller than Dawson which he isn't.

Agree that he is an upgrade and at a decent price.

hardtobeat, I think you're confusing him with Antonio at West Ham.

Pulis is signing Phillips predominantly to put more crosses into the box.

But im thinking what happens if he fails his medical or fails to agree terms?

hasn't signed yet. i imagine JP will fall off his chair when Phillips asks for £100k per week :)

Lol Hull Baggie

I'm suggesting instead of aiming for Dawson every goal kick, we can now aim for MP if needed, nothing too do with height, just another option. As you might of noticed that's our outlet from a goal kick, rather than hit it long too Rondon, who doesn't have a brilliant standing still jump.

Ah cheers for clearing that up for me. Agree with you on all points!

I think he means instead of having to push Dawson up from right back, he can be the wide target man as a right winger.

It's a start, if he joins we have a Right Winger that Pulis might play which is progress.
