View Full Version : Trippier or Baird?

22-03-2014, 10:24 PM
Reportadly a very solid debut for Baird today which wasn't totally unexpected given his pedigree and experience.

The question will raise it's head however, once Trippier is fully fit again, which one will get the head by Dyche?

Nobody can argue that Trippier hasn't been instrumentalin our success this season, however should he say miss the Doncaster and Leicester game, can he expect to stroll back into the XI if Baird continues in this vein?

Will be interesting to see where Dyche's loyalties lie, with his loyalty to individuals or the bigger picture.

Silly question alert!

********* laughs at the originator of this post.

When *********** laughs the whole world laughs too.

********* assumes CC has made a fool of himself somewhere on another thread & he is now trying to jest with his posts?

Not sure I understand the final question, Crusty. Are you saying that if he picks Trippier, he's putting loyalty to individuals above what's best for the club? Or are you saying that if he picks Baird, he's putting individual loyalty above what's best for the club? And why do you think that that single decision will give you the ability to judge him quite so decisively?

that really is a stupid question ...you drinkin late...:O

6 threads from this OP tonight.
Royboy labelled him " Crusty Cretin".
Nuff said.

Joke thread I assume. If you are seriously doubting whether Trippier would be first pick then you clearly cannot have been watching Burnley this season.

22-03-2014, 10:41 PM
Oh no, this thread is now primed for someone to seriously suggest that Trippier should play right midfield.

22-03-2014, 10:45 PM
How about keeping Baird at right back and playing Trippier right midfield?

"How about keeping Baird at right back and playing Trippier right midfield?"

An interesting suggestion.

Perhaps unlikely given the current form of the wingers, Stan today and reportedly Kightly's contribution from the bench.

Probably too late in the season to risk trying out the option but with the demands of the PL likely meaning we will have to opt a slightly more defence-minded approach, should we go up that is, it could well be something worth considering next season.

DiB... :D :D

I thank you. XD

'How about keeping Baird at right back and playing Trippier right midfield?'

Have a word will you.

Long for Duff
Duff for Baird
Baird for Marney (we just can't let him get that tenth booking)
Trippier for Stanislas/Treacy/Wallace/Kightly

Let's tinker properly.

Try and keep B_O_T or you'll end up in the play-offs. >:) B)

22-03-2014, 11:12 PM
That Luke O'Neill has represented England you know. Just saying like...

22-03-2014, 11:15 PM
Yea, DiB, get a grip!! :D :D

22-03-2014, 11:18 PM
Up B_O_T. :O

22-03-2014, 11:37 PM
Why does Crusty care? Wasn't it him who said he wouldn't go again as long as SD was in charge?

22-03-2014, 11:41 PM
'Up B_O_T'

Steady on DiBranchio, I like you but not that much. :)

22-03-2014, 11:42 PM
I reckon that Crusty is ABC's stunt double.

22-03-2014, 11:47 PM
Sorry B_O_T, I meant 'Up B_O_TTY' not 'Up B_O_T' :)

Cupid stunt more like it. :)

I didn't think the OP was that unreasonable really! I would love to see how Trips would shape as a right sided midfielder. From a purely defensive perspective; Baird, Duff, Shackell and Mee with Heaton behind them would seriously take some cracking open, especially with Trips, Deano, Jonesy and Scotty doing their thing in the second unit. We really are going up!

surely this thread should have been posted in approximately 8 days...but Baird's form could keep a few of our players on their toes given his versatility.

23-03-2014, 11:42 AM
Trippier has been fabulous since he joined us. So many of Austin, Vokes & Ings goals have been as a result of his superb crossing.

I might shed a tear the day he inevitably moves on. :blue:

23-03-2014, 12:05 PM
Trippier when he is fit...no question.
At least now we have some options with Bairds shrewd signing, shows even now how the club operates, and no change in their careful approach.
