    Ottawa, actually.
    If Beckham-esque wingers were still in style (along with the classic 4-4-2/4-4-1-1), Tripps would be one of the world's most valuable players. He'd make a magnificent Beckham - a supremely gifted (if somewhat slow) winger who can whip mean crosses into the box, take mean free kicks, pass unexpectedly well, and contribute defensively too.

    Sadly, the world's moved on from that formation (at least for now), and Tripps has accordingly been shunted into the right-back slot, a position where his defensive vulnerabilities are costly. And given that teams now rely on the wing-backs to provide width while the wide forwards cut inside/roam, his lack of pace is costly, too.

    It's just bad timing. I still think he'd make a good right-winger, but we don't really use traditional wingers, either.

    One of the more frustrating things today was where he was getting caught; it wasn't inside or outside, it was high and in an area where both recovery and coverage become tough to read in split second moments. He needs to stop letting his man get a cross in every single time. I thought Rose was excellent today BTW, he is really proving me wrong as he has started to look the business again recently. I hope him and Aurier start against Chelski (both will hopefully get the night off at Tranmere)...

    Still hasn't recovered his excellent form from last season. Needs to get back to that level of performance.

    He started the season with swagger. Then the WC fatigue caught up with him. Would be good if Aurier or KWP could give him down time to refresh.

    We need to buy a right-back in the summer, it's that simple. By far the weakest area of the squad, no stand-out player among the 3 we have. Keep one of the 3 and buy a new player for the first XI.

    I heard that he is having to be injected to play ... if that is true. That explains a fair bit.

    The only thing he's good at is crossing and he doesn't even do that anymore

    His set pieces were wonderful for a short while. Not just for England, the free kick against Fulham, for instance. But yeah, that certainly seems to have gone now.

    At least he had the balls to take the pen but his confidence must be shot now

    Either go low (preferable) or high. Mid level height is a tough penalty to pull off, perfect height for keeper if on target, if you take it like a free kick that doesn't help either.

    If true whist I appreciate the sacrifice I’d suggest we’d be better off giving him a rest and using Aurier and KWP instead.

    Exactly. It’s the one position we probably if anything have too many players in.

    You could argue none of sufficient quality, but Aurier or KWP are never going to have a run and a chance to step up if they are second and third choice behind a walking disaster laced up on tranquillisers!

    If it’s true then there is no future at Spurs for the other 2

    I bet Trippier is World Class at kicking a ball into a skip though...
