When you hear it's a "bad one", you really fear the worst but then he says he should be back in February and it's not so "bad". Think Boro will be too soon but if he's in contention for Stoke, then that will be a result.

Moore says "hopefully" they'll be back in February.

I think it more likely Morrison will be fit again in February than Phillips (hope I'm wrong though).

Reading between the lines  he could be out for some time.
I hope DM has contingency plans in hand

I think the speed with which we have replaced Barnes and Burke give an indication about the readyness of our contingency plans.

What gives you that impression? Moore has said that the injury is worse than they first thought.

Reading that article I'm not confident he will be fit for the Boro game.

The entirety of the article.

Perhaps he'll miss Middlesbrough but still be back in early February.

My immediate thought by DM comment was did he mean by the end of February, I sincerely hope not!

philips has form for this - out with a niggle that goes on for weeks/months - then returns making little impact. Have to put this up as the wrong side of very worrying particularly given the lack of options in goal scoring and creative areas.

'hopefully for February, definitely.'

This comment along with others in the article play down the seriousness of the injury in my view.

to me that just means he's definitely hopeful he'll be fit in February!

Hopefully you're right and he'll be back in February as we definitely need a fit Phillips.

These comments from DM were made last Friday, I heard the interview. I hope this means he may figure at Stoke?

Anyone got any idea when he's likely to be back available for selection?

Back in training but not contact by the look at it, after the villa game?

We certainly need him back ASAP. As has been said elsewhere however, he often makes a few below average appearances after injury before getting back to his best. The sooner the better for me and many others Im sure!

So what are peoples thoughts on his position for the remainder of the season.

Does he come back in to the middle 3? Or has the emergence of Harper covered that position. (taking into account if Barry is the other starter, would DM play Harper and Phillips who both like to get forward).

Or does he come in to the front 3 (many fans including myself saw him replacing Barnes). Does he replace Murphy who has contributed to the team since arriving, or do one of Gayle/Jay miss out (unlikely).

Personally, I would like to see him back in the middle 3, but cautious about if that would mean Harper is the one to get replaced. Livermore seems to get a lot of game time and might be seen to be a better 'defensive' option than Rekeem to allow Matty to push on to create.

Barry


Phillips                                     Harper


Rodriguez (for now)               Gayle                                Murphy


Would be my front 6. Johansen playing if Harper is fatigued.

Agree with that but not against Sheff Utd, Phillips isn't match fit yet, I'd keep him on the bench and play your mate Livermore, particularly as they are quite physical.

Under no circumstances do I agree. If Phillips doesn't play we get more minutes into Johansen's legs.

I'd start with Philips and bench Rodriguez who is one of the few players who hasn't had a rest, then bring him on when Phillips tires. with Gayle back down the middle and Murphy and Phillips out wide it wouldn't upset our shape at all.
