I'll stick with what I said earlier in the thread. I see nothing in his game that would make him a successful signing for us. He's a good player, will have a decent career but we shouldn't be anywhere near if he decides to leave West ham.
Agree. He would rarely play in a double DM for us. Different skill set for the sole DM role.

Perfect for the rags just like the overrated overpriced McGuire - a very good footballer but lacking that extra bit of class that would see him excel in an elite team like ours.

I wouldn't say that as we don't have an athletic/combative box to box in our squad,so a very good player like Philips,who would offer us those attributes,while allowing our creative players more confidence to flourish,would definitely improve us.

Looking around the worlds leagues,there isnt much out there.Its a reason Fern got that 12 months.
Agree....but Phillips is exactly what you describe.....he's out there but he's certainly "not much".
