"Not sure why you would say that."

Because it's a piece of propaganda if ever I read one.

Classic Jonty when someone’s opinion doesn’t align with his own.

Especially when they are much better placed to have an opinion than him.

How many exit messages do you see mentioning three board members by first name?

I thought Marsch tribute was very contrived, word this two elements differently and it would come across as more authentic.

You don't see many tbh. So any normal person without an agenda would read this and see it as a positive for our boards members.

But not Donald Trump lite over here. Who sees something that doesn't agree with his agenda and just shouts fake news at it.

i'm not sure if you have realised, but Phillips will have a lot lot better visibility of the goings on inside the club. than yourself. And I suspect he compares the club now, to the club before they arrived. And appreciates that there was zero chance of promotion before they arrived and sees how the club and his career have improved many times over. And maybe just maybe, he wanted to say thanks for that.

To be fair to Jonty… he may not be the only fans on here who sees this the way he sees it.

It would be interesting to know, so, rate this article 5 stars if you think it’s a genuine message from KP, or rate it with 1 star if you agree with Jonty’s view.

I took it as a genuine message. From KP.

When he thanks Radz, Orta, and the Eton Fop, to me
at least, it came across as him doing so as a Leeds lad
and Leeds fan first. Player second. More gratitude for
getting the club back on it's feet and in the Prem.

The message about MB was pure heart and love for
the man and what he has meant for him personally
(and the club/City).

The message to Marsch, again, felt like it was KP the
Leeds lad and fan thanking him for keeping us up more
than anything. And then this line:

"Over the last 4 years me and you boys..."

That screams Leeds lad speaking as a mate who
absolutely loves his mates (team mates). And no PR
group worth it's salt puts out a statement worded in
that way. That was conversational in tone (genuine).

That was my take. Regardless, I'll/we'll miss him in
out team. But, damn what a player he's turned into.
Wish him nothing but absolute success.

Well, you can read whatever you want into Phillips's goodbye and it's your right to do so and to express your opinion.

Seems to me that he was just thanking the club for giving him a start, thanking the management for allowing him to commit to Man City (when he could have generated more revenue by going elsewhere?), thanking Bielsa for turning him into the player that he's become. That's all - he's moved on and so should we.

None of our players did particularly well last season. Phillips was out for a long time but when he did play, he wasn't at his best, either before or after Bielsa was sacked. It's going to be interesting to watch how he adapts to becoming a small fish in a big pond, whether Guardiola or playing with the best in the PL can improve his game. I hope it all works out for him but I must admit that I'm asking myself now whether we saw "peak KP" during the Euros? We'll see.
