    Everyone ignores Trippier cos he doesn’t play in England. Sure James is a good player but except for him being maybe slightly more versatile in his positions what has he got that Trippier hasn’t plus Trippier was our best player probably in Russia and has better England experience.

    I don't know. Just play a 3 5 2 or a 5 3 2. Then swap to a 4 3 3 when TAA isn't in the team. What trent can do in a wing back position is way to valuable. Just have kyle walker covering him. Back 3 would be maguire if fit stones walker Chilwell and TAA at the wing backs.

    People act like England are taking Kyle Naughton over TAA. Yes he’s class we all know that, but England are stacked at RB. Reece James just won the champions league and looked great all season, Walker won the prem and looked really solid all year long, Trippier was key to Atlético winning La Liga and was one of England’s best players in Russia. All 4 are qualified, but this isn’t Liverpool. Managers get paid to make these decisions for their playstyle.

    I understand no fan can watch every game from every league but a little bit of effort would discover how unreal Trippier has been for Atletico both offensively and defensively. I’m not saying he should get in over the others but he is such a more confident and complete player nowadays with international experience, the lack of conversations including him a ridiculous.

    TAA not getting in would be typical England. taking no risks and ultimately not winning trophies. Southgate is a safe manager, who is a simple yes man. completely out of his depth if he cannot create a position in the squad for a talent like trent.

    Is there a better RB in the world than Walker? Am I missing something? A full backs first job is to defend and Walker is any winger’s nightmare. He is also an asset going forward. Not to the same extent as Trent but defensively he’s so much better. He’s by far the most well rounded and with the wingers England will potentially come up against, they need someone as solid as Walker.
