Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson reckons that Tottenham are missing Kyle Walker-Peters and thinks that his former side could have benefited from Kieran Trippier remaining at the club.

The 22-year-old started Spurs’ opening three Premier League games this season, but hasn’t featured in the league since hobbling out of the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United at the end of August with a hamstring problem.

And Walker-Peters hasn’t even been on the bench since that game, although he did play 90 minutes in the 3rd Carabao Cup humiliation against Colchester United last month – his last competitive football for Tottenham as he looks to work his way back into the side.

The England Under-21 defender has also been linked with loan moves to various Premier League clubs including Southampton and Crystal Palace, but despite being seemingly quite low down in Mauricio Pochettino’s pecking order, Robinson said that Spurs are missing him.

Robinson told Football Insider: “Kyle Walker-Peters has been a miss for us as he is an outstanding full-back, but I think the cover and options we have behind him, we could have done with Kieran Trippier sticking around a bit long.”



    • This is revisionist history.
      Trippier was awful last season and many Spurs fans were happy to see him go.
      On the flipside Poch couldn’t possibly have known that both KWP and Foyth would get injured.
      I also believe that when Foyth is fully match fit, he will be a regular in the team.

      My real concern is on the other side of the pitch.
      Why is Rose playing every game, while Davies sits on the bench? Davies isn’t great, but he doesn’t fuck up all the time either.

      • We have s mamager that is void of any sense of tactic, it does not matter who he puts out there. Keep blaming the players when you cannot select the same team game to game when all your players are fit and available.

  1. Al Boy, Foyth is fully fit as played 2 full games in less than a week for Argentina already a couple of weeks ago and as far as I know KWP isn’t injured.The fact that neither of them is playing is due to MP’s bias,clueless management.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if Aurier and Eriksen start on Sunday at Everton, and the only reason why Rose will not be playing is because he is suspended.

    • Agree with you 1000%. Manager is in his own mind. Tanguy, played his best game Tuesady, 5 days rest and he was on the bench. Kane, 90+ same game, we up by 4 early second half with Liverpool up. Gio shows flashes. Replace a useless Erikssen in the 88th minute, we down 1 75th minute. Somebody please tell me the manager knows what hell he is doing.

  2. I think that there is a lot wrong poch has been playing a game. With levi you can blame him but to be fair l think poch has shafted him for a big fat contract. Never has had a plan b and got lucky that some players bought into him and it worked for a while. Mourino with Terry and lampard springs to mind. Unless we get bought out then we will being going back to the old days win 1 lose 3 and some mediocre manager no better than what we have now.
