He's not, and will apparently never be, a natural defender either now as well.

I'm not sure I've seen as much nonsense spouted about a player as there's been in this thread.

I heard on Sky that he looked as though he was having to go off, but stayed on. What was the story?

He wasn't moving much for the first half an hour, I was worried that we'd lose him longer term. hopefully he doesn't have a reaction to today's game. With Gomez out too, we're getting really thin at the back, and the FA cup exit looks a lot more like a blessing in disguise; give the lads time to recover.

He picked up an injury in warm up but was cleared by the doctor to play after he said he'd be okay, according to the manager.

Having Trent in our team is the equivalent of having a young Steven Gerrard playing at right back. He will be a very very special player for us going forward (and I'm using the word forward in every sense of the word).

Really strange with him today. Seems Milner was warming up after a few minutes and then sat down, then after 15-20mins they said Firmino told the bench Trent couldn’t continue. Strange but delighted he isn’t injured.

Thought he had a good game. A few passes astray in the first half which I attributed to his impending substitution but it never came.

Very!  Sounds like the physios checked over whatever he'd done and decided it was painful but wouldn't impact his performance nor be aggravated by playing.  Some degree of bruising, as a complete shot in the dark.

I'm pleased for Trent that he passed the test.  Primarily because he played a big part in the win but also because it hopefully heads off the nonsense of "FFS KLOPP LOANS CLYNE OUT AND NOW GOMEZ AND TAA ARE INJURED!!!  AND WE ONLY STARTED THE SEASON WITH FOUR SENIOR CBS!!!  WHY HASN'T HE BEEN SACKED YET???"

Most of his best crosses of late have been with his left foot, which will make it real hard for defenders, as they are going to be unsure which way he's going to take the ball.

Trippier was poor again for Spurs today.  Selfishly I'd like Trent to stay as Trippier's England understudy for a while yet but it looks inevitable that he'll be the first choice right back imminently.

Not bad for a 20-year old.

He's 2 months into his 20s and is expected to be perfect. He isn't. But he bloody well can be. Think he has to take all the plaudits for playing despite being injured.

Why? The manager has already indicated he is happy with what we've got, the injured players are starting to come back now. Clyne hadn't played in months and he had fallen behind other players in the queue as well. This does not change anything.

In my opinion Clyne could still play in this role, i thought he still had a place. Other than Milner dropping back into this position, i don't know what other right back options we have. I mean im not sure the Wolves game was an example of our other right back options or not.

We now have Fabinho playing as a CB, potentially Milner playing as a full back and im hearing Gini might be out. So three midfielders not in midfield, only one true CB and limited full back options.

Camacho, Fabinho, Hoever
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and that’s being very conservative. So that’s £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head that’s £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Don't get me wrong the lads did well against Wolves. Fabinho has a big margin on the other two, but you cannot take for granted experience which Clyne clearly had up to a point. He wasn't playing at all, so match experience of late was limited. I did rate him though and was worried we might need him in this campaign. Hoever is so young.

Can these lads play in the PL, i guess we are about to find out.

I think it has mainly been done for Clyne's benefit though. In this instance Klopp thinks he has people better equipped to come in and do the job. You have to take into account how fit Clyne actually is, maybe he needs a run of games. He's had a frustrating time of it recently and to find he has dropped down the queue here, has maybe been bad for him, therefore he just needs to go somewhere else for now and start afresh. It's only a temporary measure as players are on their way back now, which would have knocked Clyne back even further.

Not worried about him moving on as just like Gerrard he’ll be here for hopefully most of his career. Deserves a new contract though, no better left back!
