Phillips downgraded as keeper

Dillon Phillips will not be first choice keeper at Charlton after he refused to sign a contract extension.  Ben Amos will take his place:

Charlton have turned down an offer from Middlesbrough for the shot stopper, who has also attracted interest from Birmingham and Blackburn.

While I can understand why Lee Bowyer is frustrated, I do feel that he has got this one wrong and that his treatment of Phillips is harsh.   The choice of keeper should be made on footballing terms.  Ben Amos is a capable keeper, but Phillips is surely first choice.
