My thanks to Essex & Ponderable for your excellent replies.
The main reason I took Phil on was that he was an "All Day Player" and the same timezone as me UK. I then assumed (wrongly) it would be a fast-ish game.
Looking back with hindsight, I have to ask myself, why does an "All Day Player" want 3days/7days playing times, this is where I went wrong, I will only take players with a 1 Day play from now on.
You live & learn.
P.S. I have just checked Phil's last few games and guess what, he lost on the 2nd May and 23rd March to "Timeouts" LOL. A true Sandbagger beware.
