    Yeah Trippier's fail rate is fairly low because he doesn't try many (0.2p90) but, personally, I take that as a negative too.

    Whoever loses possession the least whilst creating the most goals will always get my vote, don't care how they get to those stats.

    I don't think it's progressive to think that way. Football has evolved a lot since the "knock it past 'im, Bill" days.

    I would argue the opposite in that the attacking role of the full-back, or at least Pochettino full-back/wing-back, has moved away from being about getting in crosses and towards a prioritisation of providing width which is only achieved via an athleticism that Trippier is lacking - as demonstrated by his lack of take-ons.

    It's potentially how he adapted to Walker's weakness & strengths, rather than how he wants the team to play. We'll see more as to what his plans are over the coming season I reckon.

    Couldve sworn he signed a new contract a couple of weeks ago.

    It was in the news but never announced officially by the looks of it.

    Hmmm... for a defender, he's much shorter than I thought!

    Think that confirms that Tripps will at least start off the season as our 1st choice wing-back.

    Come to think of it, I'd be very surprised if he hasn't nabbed the number 2 shirt off of the outgoing Walker. At least it'll make his twitter handle correct again!

    Townsend would dribble 24/7, it didn't make him a good player. In fact he often ran into players and lost the ball.

    My reading of this situation is that Trippier is usually so far forward that he doesn't need to dribble - he's already in the final third and makes his runs off the ball, rather than with it.

    Width leads to crosses. They're almost synonymous.

    We play with 3 at the back. We do that to allow the Wing Backs to play higher up the pitch.

    The solution to Tripper not being as fast as Walker? You simply push him up higher, which is what he did last season.

    D'aww, he will be first choice.
    :pochlol:

    Though probably for this season only.
