    Can't get over just how good he was tonight.

    A superstar.

    A big energetic ball of bouncy muscle who plays with his head up. Got himself out of a tricky situation near our corner flag by being calm, waiting and using some flair. I'm going to like him a lot

    Trippier is excellent in his own right probably the best right back we've had in the premier league era apart from Walker the Johnny come lately fans like you have been spoilt.

    Took him 29 minutes to find his legs, but he was great the last two thirds of the match.

    Exciting!

    His left footed cross just before the 3rd goal was eyeopening too. Considering how one footed Walker is it means Aurier isn't as one dimensional and will not be as predictable to opposing LBs.

    I don't know why people claim Aurier's crossing abilities aren't all that. He was the best crosser of the ball in France. Not to mention he's the full package: great tackler, astute defender, superb positioning, pace to burn, great ball control, good passing range, excellent dribbling...

    Whoever sold him from PSG did it purely for non-footballing reasons. There is no better right back in France and that includes Dani Alves. A real steal.

    If Kyle Walker had put in the exact same performance Serge Aurier did tonight, we'd note it as one of his best performances for Spurs.

    And he's only going to get better. He'll be the best right back in the league I have absolutely no doubt. He's a Barca quality player and guess what, HE'S OURS!!!

    In this market 23 million is the steal of the season.

    Thought he had really poor positioning, going to ground too quickly and not tracking back in the opening few minutes but really grew into the game. You can see he is starting to get his mojo with that ridiculous duck down dummy in the box and that exchange with eriksen in the corner when they were getting pressed by a few Dortmund players. Can't wait until he has a few more training sessions with the boys and gets a real understanding of the team. Has the potential to be phenomenal

    Yea I also noticed the not tracking back early in the game. I think in a few weeks through training sessions that will get hammered out by Poch real quick.

    First few minutes aside, I thought he was fucking mint. Looking forward to seeing this guy competing with Trippier. We have got the same options we had pre the Walker sale. And I think this guy has a huge ceiling. That dummy in the box was simply outrageous. So confident & such swagger as he brought the ball out of defence.
    He's gonna be a cracker I think. Just hope he keeps his marbles

    Do you think Poch is going to keep doing the rotating every game or switch up according to their strengths? Because if that's the case Trippier would be playing at West Ham and I think Aurier would be much better at the OS considering its similar to Wembley.

    Perhaps, given the density of matches Ben Davies will be required for, that Aurier could be slotted in at left back for a game like that to give him a break.

    He's been played at LB before, hasn't he?
