KWP is ready. He's already started PL games and was MOM in both of them. He is a better player than Trippier and Aurier. Its a matter of actually playing him, which Poch does not seem willing to do(or any youth for that matter).
The unfortunate thing is that he is behind two right backs who are more experienced than him, we have a squad full of high quality players who all deserve game time.

People want us to win trophies and have a squad to compete with our rivals but moan when the manager doesn't play youth against strong opposition, it's laughable.

One game against Newcastle and another against Leicester where we gave up 4 goals in which he looked shaky defensively. I'm all for giving him a shot and more playing time but I'm not ready to throw him out against the big dogs yet.

Although not like I'm thrilled with any of the options at this point.
Aurier and KWP should be our #1 and #2 RB's. Im still upset we kept Trippier instead of selling high this summer. His value is going to be shot by January.

This commentator has gone on about Aurier and Trippier 4 times so far. Annoying.

I have t missed Sissoko while he’s been out injured. He just doesn’t offer enough I’m afraid. Although none of the midfield really is at the moment.
He just isn't a footballer for me.
God only knows who sanctioned £30m to be spent buying him

We need Llorente on. Even if it's just to occupy and distract the defence. Such a poor tactical move from Poch.

Maybe against a lower division team yeah where we can afford to take more risks...

The odd cup game here or there isn't going to give them a stat boost, this isn't FIFA...when they're ready they're ready.
Kwp's ready to play in the EFL Cup, whatever the opposition.

He may have to play in PL games if we get injuries. Don't understand your point that Kwp's only good for games against lower division oppo. When's he going to get game time?
