I think it is telling that during the 2 years we were monitoring him, no one else came in for him.

People wrote off rondon this time last year. Let's give the new batch of signings time.

Phillips is only 25 as well, still got many years to improve.

To date  I'm not overly impressed maybe under a more progressive coach he would flourish but right now I'd prefer to see Leko given his place in the starting XI

With Phillips the jury is still out for me. He reminds me of McClean last season, albeit for more money. For every bit of quality he can equally look poor, and for every good game he can look bad.
For instance, against Palace, West Ham and Spurs I was impressed. Then against Everton and Liverpool he's looked pretty poor, but then again they do say wingers are inconsistent.

As it stands I will judge him more so at Christmas when he's played a few more games, so far it's been hit and miss.

Thought I'd revisit this.

I'd still like to know why we chased this bloke so long, and what he's adding to the side. Couldn't beat an egg and delivery is poor. Defensively tracking back doesn't add much and leaves Dawson (also poor) exposed.

So far he's looked like a less hard working version of James Mcclean. Hopefully he can turn it around but have been very underwhelmed so far.

Would like to see Leko given a couple of starts if there is no improvement in the next 3/4 games.

All a bit gutting really when you arguably have a more talented player in Mcmanaman sitting on the bench.  The supporters are the ones cheated.  I don't really agree with freezing out players.  The art of management is managing different personalities.  This is what SAF was so good at.  With Pulis this is not an isolated case.

Talented football players win you matches.  I wonder if he's thinking of resigning Dean Whitehead and Glenn Whelan?

Phillips needs to keep his belief and needs something to break for him. It might have been Delhi Dynamos but interesting that the young lad Smith was on the end of his cross ....he has put in some decent balls in the prem but we don't get people in the box.
He needs to show more determination and confidence than he's shown in the last two games though. Certainly doesn't deserve to become a whipping boy on what we've seen so far and hope he gets that confidence booster soon.

Cannot say I have seen him do anything out of the ordinary really. Gets mugged easily and there are not too many crosses. I don't get excited about him at all, like I did when Leko started to come on last year. There was an element of unpredictability about Leko and I loved that.........

Thought he was immense today. Probably his best performance for us so far. Totally left Morgan in the race before scoring too. Looked as though he enjoyed the goal and ran straight over to the fans

Yes he had a very good game and certainly showed the benefit of having several players with a bit of pace in the squad.....Chadli and McLean were out but we could bring Phillips back in and Leko on the bench if needed. There was a pretty good balance about the side today.

Today was his best performance by a mile both him and the team needed it.

A different player to the one we have been seeing - really good yesterday and rightfully MOTM.

His best game for us, also the first time we have seen him further up the field.

Good performance, good assist and great finish.

I think he has 3 assists now, not too bad. Out of interest, how many did Sess get last season?

That is the kind of performance we have been waiting for since he arrived, he looks like he has all the attributes needed he just needs to get near to that level consistently.

Interesting to hear Pulis say how it's a belief thing and that he's telling Phillips that he's a good player and has got everything he needs.

like most wingers you need to keep them in the game by giving them the ball, we fed him constantly yesterday and looked a different player, almost scored within 10 mins but for a good save, supplied the cross for our opener and got the winner. he looked like the player who impressed when at blackpool. lets hope he kicks on.

I can quite believe TP's comments. By all accounts he is a quiet lad, not brimming in self belief. Probably one of those players who needs an arm round the shoulder and plenty of praise to get the best out of him, which TP seems to have sussed.

Felt that he grew into the game because of his lively start to it which helped his confidence. He was constantly asking for the ball and putting his hand up for it which I've not noticed a lot before, so hopefully he keeps that confidence for the next game

I thought he did pretty well against West Ham and Sunderland but then seemed off the pace/ didn't figure much in the Spurs + Liverpool games....obviously totally different style games anyway. He needed something to happen and hopefully he can kick on a bit from this.

Another good performance from Phillips. Has a couple more weeks to prove he should be a clear starter on the team.
