Had a bit of doubt regarding this one considering we have 3 rbs on the book.

Having put a bit more thought into it they may be something in this.

I think some of us have been expecting Aurier to nail that spot down, as he looks much better with a run under his belt, however how many times has he been injured since he's been here? As much as I want him to succeed, I don't want another Wanyama situation. So selling him in the summer could be an option.

Trippier, I still don't think he's good enough for a team with our aspirations. He's a decent back up but he lacks the dynamism that made us such a threat in 2015-17.

KWP - has still got improvement to make and I think he'll get there. No way should he be sold. I also like the thought of having two of the hottest rb prospects in the country, reminds me of the Lennon/Routledge or Walker/Naughton situations as it was very much a win win situation.

Basically, if this kids the real deal and we can have a shuffle around that results in us having more funds for elsewhere then I'm all in. Remember, we have to get creative in the market.

Fits the old Spurs MO of young and the majority of the time English.

We're not a super club yet (in terms of rev. and standing in the game) If we can't attract the top talent we want then those of the class to be developed into what we have with the large percentage of this squad now is the way forward. Rather have them hungry and wanting in on what has already been built (another probable unpopular opinion on here, but so be it)

Trippier isn't good enough i'm afraid so any good young right back available we need to be after him and see who comes out on top.. the same needs to be done with the left back.

Was at today’s game away at Brentford and he did absolutely nothing to suggest he’s a premiership player. Barely noticed him in attack or defence.

BBC reported if it wasn't for a fairly decent save at the near post by the Brentford goalie he would have bagged himself one, was it a good chance?

Kid is musturd guys. No hints in my comments btw.
My Norwich Pal raves about him so I kept a close eye on him. We can blame any mis reporting form me on my 3 year old. Seems like Jarrod Bowen stole the show again today in the championship.

Well that's that then. I look forward to seeing him play for Luton in 5 years time.

This just makes zero sense. We have a young developing RB. We need a guy who can come in and feel comfortable against CL and top 6 opponents. Frustrating.

From a team composition perspective 100% with you it makes no sense. From a hoovering talent perspective I know next to nothing about Norwich but the few Norwich watchers I do know rave incessantly about him. Really unsure why we're not pushing harder to get KWP ready to be our #1 rb. I feel like he keeps playing his way there and then we reset the clock on him again.

I guess there’s an argument that he’s 19, so buy him now and loan him back this season, then next season is the normal Poch bedding in, playing him in Cups, then you add in the sale of 2 of Trippier/KWP/Serge over the next 18-24 months and he’s a regular starter at 21-22.

We've got a quality prospect at RB already who can't seem to get a game despite getting MoM and three assists in a single game so why not add another one :banghead:
