Trent Alexander-Arnold

Recommended Posts

Whilst it benefits us that he's left out so he can have a rest/reduce the risk of injury it's fucking arl-arse on the lad who is easily the best RB in the league and probably the world. Southgate is another fucking FA suit making Englad London FC. Tripper is ok but thats just it, he's ok, nothing special at all. Walker has the experience and is a top rb but he's a fucking gobshite who I wouldn't have near a squad of mine. Granted Reece James is a brilliant player and it should be both him and Trent in the squad. I'd even play James in a 3 at the back and Trent as a wing-back. Fuck england

imagine leaving a player of Trents abillity at home going into a major tournament.........

 

im irish, and i think its safe to say, we'd all give our left testi for a player of his ilk......

 

The English national team has always been an oddly Londoncentric thing..very odd

Trippier and James are fine right backs. I get why people are not happy, but I dont think this is very significant. Dont you all dislike England anyway? If he keeps playing well, he will make the World Cup team in a year anyway. I would have picked Trent over James but you cant really ignore James now.

I don't think Trent would do well playing in that England side so it's probably a blessing he's not going. 

 

A few months of rest and he can use the knock back as motivation for next season

To be fair. If I was Gareth I wouldn't take him. He doesn't know how to play with a RB like him - it isn't just having him play as an attacking RB it is about having a coherent system that gets the best out of your best players. He'd be on the bench and then dragged on for the last 20 when England are behind and expected to change the game. They'll leave a massive gap behind him because they are chasing the game and everyone will blame Trent for his lack of 'defensive skills'. 

 

If you get invited onto Pointless you don't ask Paul Merson!

Made up if he doesn’t go to be honest ...England always need a whipping boy for when it invariably goes tits up and I feel if Trent plays after all the should he or shouldn’t he be picked means I think he’d get the blame somehow from the knuckle draggers  

True, though I think it will be Foden.

Yes this.  

He's a laser precision instrument, and Southgate just wants hammers and axes. Will be the same with Foden.  "Just go and play right wing and do your stuff Phil"....

He's clearly down the pecking order anyway , so even if he went he'd probably get no playing time so what's the point ? 

Better off staying at home and starting preseason on time . 

Being a scouser , he probably doesn't give a fuck deep down anyway.

I think Southgate wants Walker as he covers the right part of a three and Trippier is in 'the gang' so it's Trent or James and both are excellent players. If either of them aren't gojng to be first choice  they will be playing table tennis and FIFA for 3 weeks or so , so it is probably for best for us if Trent gets jibbed , particularly if England go on to stink the competition out.

Has he been left out? If he has, he should just retire from international football and fuck England off.

Laughable if he's been left out, it really is, ridiculously shortsighted too given that at some stage in his career he's going to probably move into midfield and fucking boss it. Best crosser in the world too, which, given that England traditionally play alehouse football, you'd think would come in handy. 

 

England really are shite, the politics that governs who does and doesn't get picked has always fucked me off, from Fowler repeatedly being used from the bench even in his pomp, to Gerrard - one of the top five midfielders in the world in his day - being reduced to Frank Lampard's water carrier, it's always been proper sow's ear shite.

Apparently he is eligible to play for the USA through his Grandmother. 

 

Probably be even worse though as he would end up playing Panama and Haiti in Los Angeles every international break in some fucking Gold Cup nonsense and need a private jet to get home for a 12.30 Saturday kick off.

Made me laugh when you had the absolute helmets from Talksport like Andy Goldstein and Simon jordan debating whether he is good enough to play against San Marino and Albania when he's played against Barcelona, PSG, Napoli, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Man City in the Champions league over the last 2 years.

How can you not find leaving Trent out as significant? He has absolutely smashed the assists record from right back for 2 years and completely changed the way the position is played. His vision and passing range/ability from that position has never been seen before.

 

Of course it's significant if he's not taken to a major international tournament.

Because there is talent at his position. However much or little you rate Walker, James and Trippier, they are all champions this season. Albeit, yes, Trent is better than those three, but in conjunction with those three players' successes this season, you also have a crap manager that doesn't rate him. It is what it is.

From a purely selfish angle, I hope Trent doesnt make the cut so he at least gets some rest.

 

That said, southgate is like that fucking idiot, Pearce, who wanted a southern club ethos in the england squad and decided Scotty Parker was a better candidate for England's captain than Stevie.

 

Southgate is the same. It was no coincidence in my opinion he took the captaincy off Hendo to give it to Kane. Ive no problem with Kane the player but captain of the national team? Nah, not having it.
