Fan abuse actually helped Phillips

Fan abuse actually helped Phillips

Blues striker Kevin Phillips says that the personal abuse aimed at him at St Mary`s on Saturday actually helped him on to finding the net for the winning goal.

Phillips came on for the final 15 minutes and the Saints fans let him have it, but the striker had the last word by hitting the winner just after coming onto the field.

"Perhaps the Southampton fans feel I said things on my way out of there, which were misinterpreted," Phillips told the Birmingham Mail.

"I think I stated when I left that I never wanted to leave Sunderland, it wasn`t that I didn`t want to join Southampton.

"I was an apprentice at Southampton, I was four years as a schoolboy, so I had six good years there.

"It is a question you have to ask them but I wish them all the best. At the end of the day that spurs me on and I would rather have it than not because if they don`t give you stick they don`t care about you.".

This type of thing happens all the time, lets hope that opposition fans keep it up.

Good start to the season. Even winning AWAY from St. Andrews. Best thing about it is that we try to PLAY football. Nice passing, keeping the ball on the ground, showing patience, not afraid to play the ball back. Well done McLeish to change our way of playing so dramatically so fast. But we need a reliable centreback.

Oh, I forgot to say "another clean sheet, unless from a free kick or corner"... When will the Manager and Board buy a top quality CB to lead the defence? Not this summer, I fear. Blues cannot not just rely on scoring more goals than the opposition. There msut also be a fair number of clean sheets.

How many times do we read and see former players coming back to haunt their old club?
