West Ham have no chance of signing Trippier


West Ham are reported to want right-back Kieran Trippier, but given their behaviour towards us, there is no chance of that happening and Trippier is happy at Tottenham anyway.

The birth of his baby has been giving him sleepless nights and prior to that he was concerned with his wife's pregnancy. A lack of sleep doesn't put you in the right physical or mental state to play an important game of football so he has had to be patient for his chance. he certainly took it with two great deliveries for Harry Kane, the first the type of ball we have not seen him playing before. He will get another opportunity in the FA Cup tie against Aston Villa on Sunday.

The 26-year-old (27 in September) is wanted by West Ham manager Slaven Bilic as he has a problem at right-back at the moment. While it would give Trippier game time, that is all they have to offer. He does not want to leave Spurs, has never complained about not playing as much as he would have liked and feels his game is improving under Pochettino.

He is wanted by a number of clubs and will be needed when the UEFA Europa League games start on 16th February with the first leg of a tie against Belgian side Gent in the Round of 32. A sale would leave us stretched in that area so given the club don't want to sell and the player does not want to move, West Ham will be disappointed.



  1. Nice to know you're ITK. Right. Doesn't want to leave Spurs. Why not? He's a second stringer at the lillywhites, and has every right to expect to play week in an out. He'd be a great fit at the London Stadium.

    1. When was the last time you were following football at this level seriously Paul?

      For many years now, and certainly at the top of the table and thereabouts as Spurs have been consistently for a few years now, not to mention the extra European dimension, the idea of a single team of eleven primary players with a couple of substitutes is completely outdated.

      Competing at this level REQUIRES backups in every position on the pitch. These backups always have to work extremely hard to maintain their readiness to step in at any point. We are certainly not talking about an old-(ancient)-style reserve team player in Kieran Trippier. We're talking about a player who could go straight into the first team of most Premiership clubs.

      Once this is clearly understood the idea of simply dropping a level to get game time seems ludicrous.

    2. dream on second string is still better than what your mob can offer C.O.Y.S

  2. A great fit at a team fighting to stay in the division? Why would he take such a step down at this point in his career?

  3. your having a laugh spammers hes to good for you mugs
