Why do we bother paying a wage, if Tisdale never plans to play him... he's already 21 and can't get near the team, if he would ever be good enough, he's be good enough already etc. etc.... Anyone else preparing to eat a thick slice of humble pie (keeping it on standby until he's done it for a bit longer, mind you).

He seems to have done well whilst he's been in the team, but the question to ask is would he have been given this opportunity has JMT and Ribs not been injured? Good on him for taking his opportunity, but I think the answer is no, which makes those questions valid - at least at the time they were originally asked.

What a strange op. As fans we are never likely to see the full picture, but i get there is speculation about lots of players at lots of clubs. I think he was reaching the point where he needed to either get in the side or be released and he has done well so far this season, hopefully he will keep it up.

I was thinking the same about Tom Nichols a while back - he seemed to do well whenever he played but was never consistently selected... he seems to be doing ok now.

Never sure whether there is method in Tisdale's madness.... or madness in Tisdale's method.... but somehow the aroma of roses keeps popping up.

In the video of the fans forum that Pete Martin kindly posted up, Tis mentioned Tilson as a player who got his opportunity and has done well with it. Have to say I've been surprised with how well he's done and I personally didn't see it coming, but long may it continue.

I started watching tillson in a number of psf's in 2012 and was very impressed with him back then. I'm not surprised he's starting to the make the team this season.

Me too. I saw him this time last year at Burton and Coventry and my view was 'he's overall currently simply not good enough ' He didn't shine when away on loan either.

I thought he was magnificent last night (as were all the defenders, and all the attacking players finding themselves in defence!).
