    I think Gary is somewhat missing the point.

    Whether a football club (or any organisation) should be encouraging gambling is a different discussion. Not an unworthy one, but it's not the same scenario as that under which Trippier has been banned.

    Although one is for profit and the other was casual chat...

    Having known a professional turf accountant, and seeing behind the curtains of that world, I don't have an issue with what Tripper did, he didn't bet himself, and he didn't lie about anything.

    It is basically insider dealing.

    yes, the gambling industry is

    is there really a difference between a customer putting a bet on something they know will happen and a bookie taking a bet on something they know won't happen?

    I think this is a good example of how a player’s ability and/or mentality isn’t set in stone. He was terrible in his last season for us, and his confidence looked shot. But now he’s won a league title. Perhaps with the right new manager some of our players who haven’t looked up to it will have a similar kind of turnaround.

    I've seen him play for Atleti, he's playing in a system under orders, he doesn't overcommit, he doesn't spend half the time he did with us being forward, defend first.

    People talk a lot about old school defenders the truth is the way we ask most defenders to play does expose them in some way.
