Phillips and Devine benched again, but hasn't worked too well. Stoke 2 up at half time.

Devine has come on for 2nd half though.

All in all good loan for both of them I think, but a shame the manager got sacked at Plymouth as Phillips was a regular before that.

This is also very common late in the season anyway, what's the point of playing a kid who won't be there next season over a player of similar level who probably will?

Having said that I thought Plymouth were safe but they can still in theory go down.

Great to see him back in the starting line up today.

Only took 2 minutes for Plymouth to concede when they took him off.

phillips and devine both starting for plymouth in their relegation decider, big game for them.

edit: devine played 83 mins, phillips 90. plymouth won 1-0 to stay up.

some iffy moments in there. could have given away a penalty and seen a red card too. but glad he helped Plymouth stay up.
Be nice if he got a loan somewhere next season where they put more emphasis on playing the ball out - but overall think this has been a good loan for him.

I think another season long loan would be the best move for his development.

IMO Dorrington edges Phillips in pace, composure and passing. I think he's the one we should try to fast track into the 1st team, especially if we qualify for the Europa League.

He's Argyle's Young Player of the Season.


The Argyle Young Player of the Season is Ashley Phillips. Signed in January, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, 18-year-old central defender Ashley made 20 appearances, impressing with his maturity and physical presence in the Argyle backline.

Phillips earned 46% of the Green Army’s votes, just ahead of Freddie Issaka, with 39%.

"I've had a really good time here," said Phillips. "It's definitely the highest point of my career, being able to come here and play games.

"I can't thank [Argyle] enough for trusting me and giving me the minutes I need.

"I'm so happy for the fans, and this club, that they get another season in the Championship."
