Thought Phillips had the premiership on his mind in that low energy start to the game, we probably win that 3-0 if he started a little quicker. Still looks to do his best work in the oppos half for me but what do I know?

Saw some stats which suggested that his tackling/duels won is poor compared to our other defenders and defensive mids in the division. Up there with the best on picking up second balls though.

He plays quite high for a DM, it's often the scraps from the breakdown of attacks he feeds on. Wins those second balls and puts us back on the front foot quickly. Likewise when we play out from the back, he's not neceserily the one wining the duels/tacking etc, the whole team do that, but he is the one who makes himself availalbe to the defenders to play the ball quickly to and ge us moving upfield again.

The style he is playing works well in the Bielsa system, I think thats why Foreshaw takes so much stick, he plays deeper and is a more traditional holding midfielder.

Not a big fan of stats in football, fun but don't really paint a true picture. Maybe if used with other factors properly they would be useful. Just watching Kalvin last season he was new to the position of DMF and it showed. The second ball thing makes sense as he was centre mid and that will be a learned skill already.

I want to see less of the slow to get back once beaten, cleaner tackling, taking up better positions in defence. Seeing trouble earlier and reacting quicker. But hell of a good season first season in the job.

I wouldn't pay 20Mil for him if I were a manager of a prem club though. He needs another season at DMF to have a clearer view of his future at the position

Indeed 63, hardly noticed Clarke at Guiseley, all our other young players outshone our £10m prodigy :shock:

Something has been not right with Clarke for a while now..Not sure if it's confidence or the fact he's become easy to defend but he's not in Harrison's class atm ..Still think there's a good player there, but as it stands he will have to battle to make the bench

Just watched the Guisely goal there.

Ordinary ball over the top, KP does nothing to clear it and BP does a Kiko and falls on his butt.....

Did I leave anything out?

"I am quite clear in my mind that one has to feel sincere love for those he leads, and if he doesn't feel it naturally, then he must learn how to feel it"


Marcelo Bielsa.
