Aubameyang, Trippier and Walker, Microsoft move into sports training


Chelsea have been trying to buy 28-year-old (28 next June) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund but he is heading back to AC Milan I hear, although there are other reports suggesting he is staying in Germany, which may just be Dortmund trying to maximise his transfer fee.

In 2017 Spurs right-back Kieran Trippier registered more assists (he had 5) than any other Premier League defender. His crossing is a major plus and some of his first time volleys are simply world class. In the game today full-backs are attackers first and defenders second and have to be able to operate as wing-backs. Bot he and Danny Rose were former wingers converted to full-backs. Pochettino has turned both of them into England internationals.

Sport is now a data driven business and Tottenham embrace sports science to try and eke out every minute advantage. MICROSOFT have now launched a new Sports Performance Platform which it says could enable teams to predict injuries and prolong players’ careers.

  1. Seems like Trippier has better assist stats... but the overall picture isn't clear...
