Is Leeds United Phillips offer ploy to guard high valuation – opinion

There are some people who are perennially cynical in their outlook. They forever refuse to see the black-and-white of life and insist that all is not as it first seems.

Call them hacks, call them cynics, call them crackpots, they are out there and they are in numbers. Their conspiracy views, once the refuge of lone men in ragged clothes living in seclusion, are now mainstream and growing in number. What was once plain, is now the new obscure and not to be taken at face value.

From the JFK shooting to Elvis’ death, from the death of Hitler to the idea of a flat Earth, these people are out there and they are ready to latch onto the obvious in an attempt to make it cloudy and somewhat obscure. This special breed of people cannot help it, it is in their very nature. It’s not questioning, very rarely links to logic and tends to get trawled out far more often nowadays.

It’s always on the back of good news, never trailing any bad news. First ray of positivity and out come the doom merchants and misery mongers…or so it seems. That’s exactly what has happened today after news started to leak that Leeds United was rewarding Kalvin ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’ Phillips with a new, massively improved five-year deal. Whilst the massive majority of Leeds fans were jubilant, the hermit hole dwellers soon crept out.

For them, and there is a small number of them, it’s all some sort of smoke-and-mirror set-up. They are not content with the obvious good news that Phillips is signing a five-year deal, some malcontent has to surface. Some are saying it is a front to protect his value, a way of keeping him at the club until there’s an opportunity to sell him. Others simply think that he will be sold anyway, they inhabit the deepest pit of available doom.

Back to the title, is all of this an elaborate ruse by Leeds United to somehow cover up their ulterior motive to sell Kalvin Phillips like a piece of merchandise. Yes and no. Taking the latter, no it isn’t – it is just the club tying down an important asset and rewarding him for the excellent player that he is. The former ‘Yes’ response only exists in the heads of the addled few.
