When he keeps it simple he is as good as most Championship players. Still not the finished article and his rashness is a liability.
This time I know it's for real :shirtw:

Not good today.

Wasteful in possession, didnt do enough at all and was rightfully taken off (although his replacement wasnt any better).

Was he benched or injured?

KP struggled badly yesterday as he was feeling under the weather before the game & felt worst at half-time, as a consequence he was subbed

Another poor game.

Still not convinced by him, ideally it'd be Vieira and someone else with Kalvin on the bench imo.

Shaughnessy or Alioski should have been subbed

How an earth could anyone take Phillips off when our other two battlers were sidelined with injury, It left us totally exposed. Cotterill immediately brought on Jota & we consequently lost the game

Quality midfielder would take the game by the balls, we have lost to many midfield battles and young Kalvin has been part of that midfield more then anyone else.

Potential is there, but doubt he will ever be anything special.

I watched bits of the Bristol City game, Josh Brownhill is streets ahead of Kalvin imo while playing a similar role.

Here we go again with fans slagging off Phillips who has clearly been struggling a bit the last 3 games presumably due to a bit of illness. With others being injured it was probably a case of KP playing when ideally TC would have been looking to rest him until he was 100%

Poor again I'm afraid. Wasnt helped put by his partners.

Like our team, take Vieira out of our midfield and Kalvin looks lost.

Gets a lot of stick, and is improving.

But, he isnt ready to be a week in week out player.

He is not championship standard. He may have one good game in 10. Unfortunately our centre midfield options are so poor we have no option but to play him. I think Klich should be given a run of games. He can't be much worse.

Think id agree with all of that, perhaps a bit harsh with the "not Championship standard", but id agree he isnt playoff hopeful starter standard.

Id love Klich to get a chance :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Feel bad as i keep having a go at Phillips.

But again he was poor . .that aside .

Kicking the ball away and now being banned become of it is so stupid.

2 game ban because of it.

Good time to get suspended maybe with Vierra getting healthy and Forshaw hopefully starting very soon. If we can get through this blip and make a run would be nice to have all key moving parts ready to go

Hoped maybe he would come back eager to make amends, new manager, clean slate, back to early season form.

That didnt happen . . . .. .

Just anonymous today, he didnt do anything really crap like O'Kane, he didnt do anything good like Lassie, the problem was he didnt actually do anything.

Not good enough, he could have not come out at half time and doubt anyone would have noticed, must do better Kalvin.

I don't want to see him again in the white shirt of Leeds

The only way that is going to happen is if I stop going to matches :shock:
