Hi Eds,

Had a browse back of earlier posts. I know you've mentioned we'll potentially look at a right back this summer, I wondered if you had picked up any potential names recently? Thanks for your hard work.

Has Trent not come on enough for Klopp to trust as his first choice next year Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - it is more that both Gomez and Trent are not expected to have a long term future at full back.}

Trent is so young, will he not have another 2/ 3 years at full back before moving forward? He gets great experience there.

{Ed001's Note - he still is not going to play every game, and Clyne is unwanted, so another right back is needed.}

I like Clyne, but is inconsistent. Where do you think Trent will end up playing in the long term Ed?

{Ed001's Note - he is expected to end up in midfield.}

I get that ed, but can't Gomez rotate right back and centre back? Who can we buy that will be good enough, and happy enough To be second choice to Trent for now?

{Ed001's Note - he would be pushing for first choice, allowing Trent to rotate there and in midfield and Gomez to rotate there and centre back.}

In my opinion, Ed01, I would keep him at right back long term. Agreed that this season is the first I've seen him week in week out and didn't followed his development prior to this season, but if we get another RB, I would hope it's because Clyne is leaving.

So ed001 with can leaving and Keita coming another expected

How do you think he will play midfield just interest to how ya think it'll work out.

{Ed001's Note - same as this season, one deep two up.}

Very interesting that people see his qualities in midfield, ed1. Thanks.
Do you have any inclination of what type of midfield role Trent is expected by the club to play. or in your opinion where his attributes would see him suited?

I. e. the deeper “6” type role or a more box to box role with more attacking license type role.
Appreciate this is asking for a crystal ball in some respect and players can adapt to many roles but it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.

{Ed001's Note - more of a box to box type role as he has pace and energy to get up and down.}

Trent playing right back short term is perfect for gaining experience for the box to box midfielder . Didn't Gerrard start at right back under houllier?

I susupect a fullback in the Robbo type of deal would do,1 who is looking to push for 1st team but also looking to put in the shift of learning instead of sulking,

definitely a box to box type. when he first started coming on fir the first team as a sub and in some age group games he played in midfield and looked very much like a player hungry to get forward, get stuck into tackles etc perfect attitude and engine for a box to box type especially in our system.

But I could see him playing more regularly at RB for another season or two. I struggle to see how rotating in and out of RB to CM will be helpful to him at this early stage unless he is going to be so influential as a CM that he ousts one of the incumbents there. I'd like to see him continue as a RB next season as the oreferred first choice, develop his experieence and reading of the game etc. it's a great position to learn from.
