    Trippier was excellent in the first season after Walker left

    And his defending ranges form brilliant and appalling in the same defensive action

    Trippier would have IMO been very very good this season if he had recovered the his injury

    We don't ask him to do a lot of defending under Mourinho, or when we do, we have someone placed a meter in front of him at all times.

    I think Walkers way better than Doherty, even now, let alone when we had him (his best years).

    not that I’m upset with this potential signing. Could be very good.

    I agree. I think he'd thrive in Aurier's current role

    This signing would suggest Mourinho wants to stick with a similar formation to last season with Davies tucked in as a 3rd CB most of the time. Doherty played an attacking wing-back role for Wolves? I know its a way Mourinho likes to play, but I'm not sure I prefer it to us having a more balanced setup with players like peek Rose and Walker. Players who can defend or attack as the game and space dictate.

    Yet he still makes mistake after mistake
    He is the classic player that wins a header he shouldn’t make and heads it back into play to be picked up by his opposite number
    Or makes a clearance to the same man only for him to score...

    Walker is a very different player
    Technically not great but physically outstanding
    Walkers pace does get him out of so much bother but it’s also his biggest attacking threat. He wasn’t a great user of the ball or a defensive judge, but he was strong in tackles and challenges and could hit a ball well
    Him and rose were the best pairing in the world at their peak IMO

    Exactly. He attracts errors.

    Because he is really stupid
    It’s just his nature
    He makes challenges he doesn’t need to make

    Well that’s definitely not true - he didn’t get more than Robertson!

    And a quick check shows he also got less than Digne and Azpilicueta.

    He got 3 last season and 5 the season before - pretty good though not outstanding for an attacking wing back I guess.

    Whereas he got 4 goals each of the last two seasons, which from a quick check seems to be the most of any full-back.

    (I was just looking at PL, not all competitions).

    Where did you get those stats from? You're right about Robertson.

    chance creation he is second only to TAA and both play a wing back type of role
