I think the funniest thing to take from the whole Trent debate is that these opposition fans who supposedly don’t rate him are still using him as the yardstick to measure their own teams full backs against! 😂.

People are talking like trent isn't a 22 year old boy who has already won the league, cl and club World Cup. Its baffling honestly.

05 Apr 2021 22:40:02
Anyone who doesn't rate him doesn't know football. Anyone who says he can't defend doesn't watch him close enough. Simply put he's the best right back in the world over the last 3 years. Playing in a disrupted team isn't his fault.

05 Apr 2021 22:58:46
Best right back in the world. give over man!

05 Apr 2021 23:06:56
Who’s overall game is better, Baz?

05 Apr 2021 23:20:53
I can give a manager a break if I can understand what he's thinking, even if it doesn't come off. I can understand the thinking behind having Trippier and Walker in the squad ahead of Trent. More experienced, considered to be better defensively, work better in a back 4 with disciplined FBs, Walker can play as a CB in a back 3 etc.

I think he's wrong though. Neither Walker or Trippier are so excellent defensively that it's worth the trade off vs. Trent going forward, but I understand what he's thinking, even if the logic of it is flawed.

What I don't understand is the thinking behind Reece James seemingly ahead of Trent based on the last squad. Plays primarily as a RWB in a back 5 and doesn't appear to be particularly special defensively, less experienced than Trent, and not nearly as good as Trent going forward (4 assists in his PL career vs. 29 for Trent) . That one has me thoroughly stumped.

Then again, as I'm Irish, this only concerns me if it knocks Trent's confidence. Players generally like playing for their country and I'm sure Trent will be pissed off if he's not in the Euro squad.

05 Apr 2021 23:21:38
Baz. I'm scratching my head mate. Nah, can't think of one.

Ergo, Trent is the best.

05 Apr 2021 23:44:05
Exactly Silvered. People who want to take a pop at 22 year old (! ) Trent's ability should at least try and make themselves look more than a troll by stating who they want to replace him with. Supposedly he's had a bad season creatively but he's still on 6 assists. Only Firmino has more in our whole squad. A victim of his own success I'd say.

We all know that Trent can sometimes leave space in behind at times but that is because of how he is asked to play. Watch our third goal against Arsenal for evidence. What other right back in the world presses the opposition left back on the edge of their area? If he wasn't playing that high under instruction, Klopp wouldn't be so supportive of him and wouldn't keep playing him.

He's brilliant at defending on the front foot and making quick use of the ball when he wins it back. If you get past our press though then yes it leaves a gap in our right back area. I can't honestly believe it still needs explaining.

If you want to question his form, that's a different debate. He's not been at his best. Class is permanent though and he is still the best in the world ability wise.

Bang on Adam. Even Neville in his commentary said that Trent and Robbo's assist contribution last season should be taken as an outlier and it was abnormal.

06 Apr 2021 06:45:06
England team is full of bias and club and league level. You will know when sancho isn't picked either.
Obviously southgate thinks people will attack trent on the right because they will feel he is most fragile.

What he keeps forgetting is he has Pickford as keeper and slabhead as cb and shaw at LB who are bigger defensive liabilities than trent. But ofcourse since he don't have options there he will absolutely turn a blind eye to that.

{Ed077's Note - Why bring up Shaw who has 1 cap in 2-3 years? This was the first time he was even called up since 2018.}

06 Apr 2021 07:34:39
Shaw has had a far better season than Trent. Trent has been way off his best, due to numerous factors. When defending one on one in the fb position this year players have gone past him far too easily. He looked bast to his old self v arsenal’ and he can finish the season stronger.

{Ed001's Note - Shaw has been caught out of position, and I am not talking about on quick counters, I am talking about from times when he has got back, on numerous occasions. He has been terrible defensively but everyone seems to ignore how crap he is when it comes to defending. As for Trent, he has not been anything like as bad as you keep making out, very few players have gone past him, let alone far too easily.}

06 Apr 2021 07:35:36
I’m not sure why we are getting so irate that Trent wasn’t picked for 1 England squad. If this was Utd or Everton fans crying over one of their players we would be the first ones mocking them. As long as Trent is happy with us I don’t really care what Southgate is doing with England and that squad. From a selfish point of view the more Liverpool players that get a break in the summer the better.

06 Apr 2021 08:07:36
This post isn't anything to do with England though JK23. It's about people in general questioning Trent's ability. I don't think anyone on here cares about his place in sham squad assembled by a pub league manager. Trent himself even said the other day that he is Scouse, not English (paraphrasing), and that his focus is on winning things with Liverpool. International football is awful and even the players must know that every international break is just a long boring wait for the Prem to return.

06 Apr 2021 08:40:00
I’m delighted he’s not in that England squad the break was great for him!
He’s only a young lad with los to learn and gain!
Going forward he’s second to none!
Defending he’s upped his game but can do better!
Just my 2 cents worth!
I love Trent and his passion scouse not English!
England’s loss not LFC’S!

06 Apr 2021 08:47:42
Mk ok mate I’ve only seen people comment that Trent has been on and off form this season, I’ve not actually seen any actually make out that he’s no good (not that I’m saying those posts aren’t about) . And I think your very harsh calling Southgate a pub league manger. What have pub league managers ever done to you to deserve such criticism as being compared to Southgate 😜.

06 Apr 2021 09:55:31
Very true, JK23. Phil McCoch has done a great job at the Hare and Hound. I apologise profusely.

06 Apr 2021 10:08:26
Haha brilliant.

06 Apr 2021 11:16:03
Phil McCoch would be nothing without his assistant manager from the Indian takeaway next door. Yup, Ramitin Bawdeep is the brains of the operation!

06 Apr 2021 11:23:18
Off the top of my head

Sterling twice for 2 of Citys goals

Numerous time wingers have been able to knock it past Trent too easily and get crossses in. He has had a poor season. The Arenal game he was outstanding but he has only played like that 3 times this season.

{Ed001's Note - that's 3 times in 35 appearances that you have come up with. That's not numerous, not even close. You are being overly harsh on the best full-back in the world, expecting unreasonable levels of perfection.}

06 Apr 2021 12:13:30
There are many others that’s just what I remember in the past 6 Pl games or so. If you asked any supporter or Trent or Klopp would you be happy for Trent to perform as he has this season next year, nobody would say yes. Last season he was 8.5 out of 10 this season 4 out of 10 so far.

{Ed001's Note - if anyone is clueless enough to think he is a 4 out of 10 then they don't understand the game at all. Yes his performances have been below last season but it is just nonsense to suggest he has been that bad. I don't know why I am bothering, you never see any balanced view once you have a target in your sights, you just see the bad and then jump on here to slag them off repeatedly. By the way, if Trent had been playing at 4 out of 10, he would have been dropped and you know that is true, so why make such a ludicrous statement?}

06 Apr 2021 13:08:21
Jaysus mark the lad had no pre season (like others) he’s had C.V. he’s been partnered in defence by I don’t know how many defenders! He’s been in a team the last Nearly 3 years no rotation!
Have u ever played fb position and try do what he does up and down the pitch 90 mins!
No word or Robbo’s mane formino drop off?
We should be delighted we have Trent not bitchin because he’s had a off season lads are spent simple as!

06 Apr 2021 14:09:34
Of course all that is true Jay we know all the reasons, who is bitching? But people are trying to pretent he has had a decent season and that is so far not the case. By his own admission Trent has been below his expected levels this season. We are not discussing all the reasons just his overall levels and they are way down.

Lets just pretent that, Mane, Allison, Trent, Firmino, Gini have all been good this season and just blame our disasterours pl campaign only on the injuries to our 2 cb's. We have lost 9 pl games, and one of the reasons is a lot of players lost form and Trent was one of them.

10 awesome, 9 great, 8 very good, 7 good, 6 ok, 5 average, 4 below average,3 poor, 2 really poor, 1 retire.

I think 6 for Allison, 4 is right for Trent, Mane, Gini,
and 3 for Firmino.

Judging them against the so called top 8 sides in the pl, our competition.

06 Apr 2021 15:15:01
I bring shaw up because he will be picked for euros. And we all know its nothing to do with do called performances because he was garbage before january.
The guy doesn't have a clue.

{Ed077's Note - he's a LB who doesn't have much competition for his place. And it was his first call up in almost 3 years.
"And we all know its nothing to do with do called performances because he was garbage before january" isn't it a bit contradictory? Or am I stupid?
