That doesn't seem like a very Ole at United signing though? Strange one to be honest. Are they giving up on AWB then?

Trippier is 30. And he's playing in a side that is top of the league. And he's a Man City cast off. And he's overrated.

So for all of those reasons, I'm sure Ed will sign him.

I think he's a good right back but would be an odd position to strengthen.

Not sure why they'd sell him from what I hear he's doing pretty well out there and we've got enough right back options.

He's been assisting no end this season at Atleti, something none of our current L or R backs would even know what that word means.

I can understand the thought behind it, AWB needs some competition. And some lessons on going forward.

AWB is fine going forward I think people play on that way to much.

Where AWB really needs to improve is learning where to stand especially when crosses come in from the other side he’s got great recovery skills but he’s to reliant on them because his positioning isn’t good. Probably because he’s only recently converted from a winger to a right back.

You clearly haven't been watching many Utd games since he joined us. You must be the first person I have EVER heard come out with that!

AWB is very poor going forward.

AWB is very poor going forward.

Judged against some incredibly attacking full backs who can't defend TAA, Walker or James then yeah he's not at that level but he's as good going forward as any back back we've had since Rafael & Evra.

I didn't say he was spectacular just said for a full back he's perfectly fine he puts in ok crosses often to strikers who are terrible in the air, he's able to beat his man one vs one to create the crossing angle, he can play one two's round the corner.

He's far from Dani Alves in his prime but he's competent enough from an attacking point of view.

Trippier has a much better cross on him than AWB no one is going to deny that he's a dead ball specialist after all but AWB reminds me a lot of the younger version of Kyle Walker it's all still a bit wild and needs work but the raw materials are there to develop.

I remember time after time watching him look up in a good position out wide and not having a single player to aim at in the box so what is he supposed to do. Also, the way we attack it's hard for him to get to far forward because we give the ball away so much he doesn't want to leave himself constantly facing a 70 yard sprint back towards his own goal to try and stop a counter attack.

AWB does get out of position a fair bit too, you're rating him because he is excellent at runnning back and getting his legs around a player and that always looks fantastic. But he gets into that position way too much.

I literally said this in my previous post if he knew where to stand he wouldn't end on his backside making recovery tackles 5 times a game.

Good defenders don't need to go to ground because they've dealt with the situation before it even emerges look at players like Rio in his prime he'd took the ball of the striker before he even knew what he was going to do with it.

Banned for 10 weeks by the FA for gambling.

Sign him up Ed!

Had his ban suspended by FIFA after Atletico appeal.

Case will be reviewed by FIFA committee so Trippier is free to play again.

Had his ban upheld by FIFA.

Ban applies to all football so isn't even allowed to train with his team mates because of he told his mates he was moving club and they stuck a bet on it.
