Burnley star Trippier aiming for the Three Lions via Premier form

KIERAN Trippier hopes his move into the Premier League with Burnley will one day help him realise his England ambitions.

Trippier has been voted the best right back in the Championship for the past two seasons and at the age of 23 is regarded as one of the brightest talents in the country in his position.

The Clarets defender left Manchester City in 2012 without playing a first-team game, despite captaining them to the FA Youth Cup four years earlier, but is relishing his first opportunity to play in the Premier League.

His first target will be helping Burnley remain in the top flight, but he also admits he would love to break into the England squad in the future.

“It’s obviously one of the things that’s in my mind but I’ve got to take it day by day,” said Trippier, who featured for England from the under 18s through to the under 21 team.

“I played from such a young age for England, but I don’t want to just think I’m going to walk into the England team because it doesn’t work like that.

“Like I’ve said to my family and friends, if it happens it happens, if it doesn’t it doesn’t.

“It all comes down to myself and how I perform as an individual and with the team.

“I’ve just got to concentrate on my own performances and hopefully do the best I can, like I’ve done in every game I’ve played for Burnley.

“Then if you get the nod you get the nod. It would be an honour and privilege to play for my country.

“I need those good players around me that we’ve got here to break through to the England team.

“There are loads of good right backs out there, you’ve got Calum Chambers, Nathaniel Clyne, Kyle Walker, obviously Glen Johnson, Kyle Naughton at Tottenham, Andre Wisdom, Martin Kelly, Jon Flanagan, John Stones who was at Barnsley with me. There are loads of players.

“Glen Johnson is the number one right back but there are so many good young players that maybe if they get the chance, they’re hungry to keep the shirt.”

Trippier does not hide from the disappointment of leaving Manchester City without featuring in the Premier League – first loaned out to Barnsley and then to Burnley, before making his move to Turf Moor permanent.

But that only serves to motivate him this season.

“It’s a big opportunity for me personally,” said Trippier, who signed a new three-year contract with the Clarets earlier in the summer.

“I left City and came here to play as many games as I could and hopefully reach the Premier League with Burnley.

“It was just one of those things at City. When Sven-Goran Eriksson was manager we didn’t have that much money and he took me on tour and played me, and I felt welcome.

“Then he left and Mark Hughes came in, and it was a similar thing.

“But that was when the money started rolling in and they started buying all these players which was good for the club but personally as a young lad it wasn’t the best thing.

“I had a couple of loan spells at Barnsley and got some games under my belt, but it came to a real thing when Roberto Mancini came in and I needed to be settled at a club.

“They had Micah Richards, Zabaleta and Boyata who’s still there now - good players don’t get me wrong, but maybe I thought I could have got my chance.

“I wasn’t expecting to play week in week out, I just thought training with those players every day you’re only progressing and I thought maybe I’ll get the nod, maybe on the bench, maybe make a late appearance.

“But if it doesn’t happen it doesn’t happen. I’ve got nothing against Manchester City.

“I’ve got my chance at Burnley now and I’m going to grab it and give 100 per cent, just like I’ve done ever since I walked through the door here.

“It was my time to move on, I came to Burnley and I’ve had three fantastic years here and hopefully there are another couple to come.

“Every game I played in the Championship I did my best, and to be voted two years on the spin by all the other players was a great achievement for myself.

“But I want to go one better now and show everybody, not just Man City but everybody, that I can cope with the Premier League and do well for Burnley Football Club.”

I think Trips will be more than capable at this level, but sadly will have to move before being considered for anything other than club football.

It's fantastic to see he threw his hat in the ring and signed on again for three years. He has developed superbly at Burnley and he appreciates that. Here's to his progression and onto bigger things in the next couple of years. It will be fully deserved.

Even as a Rovers fan this is something I'd very much like to see. I care deeply about the national game and feel that with Prem football on his side this lad has a real shot if he can replicate his form of the past 2 years. Either way we need somebody to make up for Glen Johnson's incompetence.

In the late 1950's and the 1960's we had a number of English players who failed to reach England International status, despite being good enough to have done so. All the guys, now as ex-pro's say it was because they were playing for a small town club. Colin Waldron and Burnley really thought his time had come when three first choice England central defenders were injured, including McFarland and Todd. The national press ran articles predicting it. Revie picked an ageing David Sadler instead.

Southampton did give hope that a smaller club could provide players. But, a newly promoted small club cannot expect that to happen.

It may well be that both Trips and Ingsy will need the move eventually to realise that dream. They both have the potential.

In the meantime they play for us. UTC!

Completely agree we need a plan to fast track younger players and although not sure a quota system would work the PL hasn't proved a really brilliant impact on the nation's performances.

If trippy wants to play regular for England he will have to move. He has the advantage of being a big fish in a small mud hole. United and Chelsea have a glut of young English players in the reserves so he will have first team football on his side. The only drawback will be getting a drubbing every week as a defender isn't good.

You also need to factor in that in this side his attacking threat isn't going to be much on view in the Prem. He really needs to get into a proper Premier League football club.

Keiron Trippier is an infinitely better defender than Walker, Naughton or any of the other understudies to Glen Johnson, he is also a potent attacking weapon - his 14 assists (Second only to attacking midfielder Bryson) last season proves how good he is going forward.

He will play for England.

This is an extremely good point. Dyche seems to get a quick measure of the players he worked with. Shackell had a reputation for being a great central defender for 70 minutes but his concentration would wonder. A mate of mine who lives in the East Mids say he used to look like an International and suddenly as if he was from the Conference. Now he is the genuine article - all hard concentration for 90 minutes plus.

Arfield has changed too. At Town he used to drift in and out of games. He didn't track back. Now its the utter opposite. He is for ever on the shoulder of an opponent. He tracks back remorselessly. He's always looking to retrieve the ball and then take an opponent on.

Three players. Three areas of their games that needed transforming. It happened. And quickly. In Dyche we trust.

This is an extremely good point. Dyche seems to get a quick measure of the players he worked with. Shackell had a reputation for being a great central defender for 70 minutes but his concentration would wonder. A mate of mine who lives in the East Mids say he used to look like an International and suddenly as if he was from the Conference. Now he is the genuine article - all hard concentration for 90 minutes plus.

Arfield has changed too. At Town he used to drift in and out of games. He didn't track back. Now its the utter opposite. He is for ever on the shoulder of an opponent. He tracks back remorselessly. He's always looking to retrieve the ball and then take an opponent on.

Three players. Three areas of their games that needed transforming. It happened. And quickly. In Dyche we trust.
I think also we forget Dyche is part of a much bigger support team, it's no accident that we got so few injuries and recovery was good, look at Ings he came back very well and enough of a handful to see us over the line. So Dyche adds value but the huge effort on the sports science side and support team played a part. Seeing as we have some sensible Rovers today can we see Bowyer adapting a Dyche in their face but strong at the back approach or is he still a bit more conservative as I think this cost them a few points last season?

I think a little bit of humility is in order here.

Burnley is a very small football club. It cannot hold on to players of this calibre. They will always want to move on to a club with Premier League stadiums and Premier League fan bases. Burnley are what, League 1 at worst or lower end of Championship at best?

A 10,000 average at home games last season and during a promotion season at that was very embarrassing. Rovers averaged more than Burnley and didn't make the Play-Offs, they're even out performing us in Season Ticket sales.

Come on Clarets, enjoy the Venkys unexpected promotion and the defeat of Rovers but let's not kid ourselves. All Burnley fans surely understand these harsh realities and i think that deep deep down, that is why ending the 35 year hoodoo over Rovers and the unexpected promotion feels, well, hollow.

Probably explains why he has signed a new three year contract extension last month then doesn't it?

Sorry Chuck, contracts mean nothing. Burnley is a footballing backwater and the more perceptive of us understand that.

"Owned"? That sounds like childish internet language people use in American teen dramas and on YouTube. How old are you?

Again Chuck, Rovers may have averaged 15,000 last season, down from 25,000 but they were barely in the top six all season and Burnley were barely out of the top two, yet they still averaged more than Burnley's 10,000 and are outselling Burnley in Season Ticket sales and have been doing so since the mid 1970's.

I'd keep the inflated figures of 15,000 missing fans to yourself because even with those "15,000 missing fans" they still out supported us.

That is the brutal truth.

I agree, Ray. This kind of atrocious bluster from so-called Burnley fans is an intense source of acute embarrassment to many of us.

We just aren't as big as we like to think we are and it is time the 8-10,000 fan base we have just accepted that we are a small club in a small town and that there is absolutely no shame in that. Rovers are somewhat different, they are a big club in a small town. A unique footballing anomaly.

Wigan are bigger than Burnley.

I think you are over estimating your ability to pick an England team there, Chuck.

He was lucky enough to gain promotion with an unpopular and unfashionable club but he will suffer the second season syndrome. I doubt the Premier League will be a happy stomping ground unless he moves to a club with pedigree.

Burnley lack facilities and ambition. We simply to not have the profile. It saddens me to point out such unpalatable truths.

I could have missed something here but is a Blackburn fan who copies claret usernames and posts under them seriously expecting anyone to take him seriously? The only reason he's done this is becausevhus other usernames are now toxic even on his own club's threads. This attention seeking freak should really not be given the dignity of a reaction.

I think you are over estimating your ability to pick an England team there, Chuck.

He was lucky enough to gain promotion with an unpopular and unfashionable club but he will suffer the second season syndrome. I doubt the Premier League will be a happy stomping ground unless he moves to a club with pedigree.

Burnley lack facilities and ambition. We simply to not have the profile. It saddens me to point out such unpalatable truths.

I could have missed something here but is a Blackburn fan who copies claret usernames and posts under them seriously expecting anyone to take him seriously? The only reason he's done this is becausevhus other usernames are now toxic even on his own club's threads. This attention seeking freak should really not be given the dignity of a reaction. He is experiencing or is close to a nervous breakdown, pity yes, but this is the man who ruined every story to the point where the LET had to close them down. He's not into banter, just bile and hate. Go away Gollum you are an indecent specimen and you're embarrassing to Blackburn
Calm down and stop dribbling.

I am a passionate Claret but we really do need to get a grip and recalibrate our expectations. Burnley are an unfashionable and unpopular football club, the only club in East Lancashire we are bigger than is Accrington Stanley.

The Premier League is a daunting task and i doubt we'll ever match Blackburn Rovers' two decades, FA Cup and League Cup semi-final and final appearances, triumphs and adventures in Europe where by the way, contrary to popular myth: Rovers played 30, won 10, drew 9 and lost 11 with 38 Goals For and 34 Goals Against and an average attendances of 17,510 (more than we got the shop season we were promoted).

Burnley are light years behind Blackburn.

Yet more atrocious bluster from a fellow Claret.

The Venkys have far more money than our owners, Rovers debt is owned to the Venkys, Rovers spent two decades in the Premier League, have a world class stadium, world class academy and medical media facilities.

Your first point about being better supported is what makes Burnley such an unpopular club.

Again Chuck, Rovers may have averaged 15,000 last season, down from 25,000 but they were barely in the top six all season and Burnley were barely out of the top two, yet they still averaged more than Burnley's 10,000 and are outselling Burnley in Season Ticket sales and have been doing so since the mid 1970's.

I'd keep the inflated figures of 15,000 missing fans to yourself because even with those "15,000 missing fans" they still out supported us.

That is the brutal truth.

Very good sensible post. Totally agree with you.
First of all if this guy has ambitions about playing for England l think it might be a good idea to work his ticket to its full potential in the premiership first before getting carried away with big ideas .Secondly England are so poor that even Trippier could be given an opportunity when you consider how abysmal they performed in the world cup. to all you England mugs who continue to watch them and think they are anywhere near good enough to win even a mickey mouse cup are totally deluded.

And look where it has got our respective clubs: One is competing in the best and most prestigious league in the world after smashing through Division Two with 93 points, one....well....errr.
....isn't.

'Rovers debt is owned to the Venkys' - FFP will still come and take a massive and potentially fatal bite out of your ar5e though won't it?

'Rovers spent two decades in the Premier League, have a world class stadium, world class academy and medical media facilities' - And what have you to show for all your seasons in the Premier League? massive debt and nothing else. Also what exactly is 'medical media'?

Burnley averaged a lot more than 10000 last season and Rovers averaged a lot less than 15000, so your figures are bull5hit my friend.

And we have sold just shy of 14000 season tickets - I await your answer to see how many Rivers have sold to prove your point that Blackburn 'are outselling Burnley in Season Ticket sales'

Oh dear. Why would you chose to expose yourself like this?

It is because of so-called Burnley fans like you that we are such a widely detested club. The only club in East Lancashire that Burnley are bigger than is Accrington Stanley.

Someone cruelly described us as the "sloppy seconds of East Lancashire football", sadly, my fellow Clarets do nothing to diminish that view in the eyes of the many, many Blues out there.

As for stats, i suggest visiting this highly informative web site which does more than bust a few Burnley myths, myths incidentally that i was brought up on. It really does feel quite liberating when one chooses to accept reality.

Burnley is a very small football club. It cannot hold on to players of this calibre. They will always want to move on to a club with Premier League stadiums and Premier League fan bases. Burnley are what, League 1 at worst or lower end of Championship at best?

A 10,000 average at home games last season and during a promotion season at that was very embarrassing. Rovers averaged more than Burnley and didn't make the Play-Offs, they're even out performing us in Season Ticket sales.

Come on Clarets, enjoy the Venkys unexpected promotion and the defeat of Rovers but let's not kid ourselves. All Burnley fans surely understand these harsh realities and i think that deep deep down, that is why ending the 35 year hoodoo over Rovers and the unexpected promotion feels, well, hollow.
'It cannot hold onto players of this calibre'

Probably explains why he has signed a new three year contract extension last month then doesn't it?

Ouch, owned again.
He really is useless and clueless

Whether he gets a chance or not at international level he’s a fine player. I think there’s a lot in the fact that Burnley is a small club and so don’t get a chance. Just look at some of the Man U players that have played for England recently. Some of them would struggle in the Championship.

'Rovers debt is owned to the Venkys' - FFP will still come and take a massive and potentially fatal bite out of your ar5e though won't it?

'Rovers spent two decades in the Premier League, have a world class stadium, world class academy and medical media facilities' - And what have you to show for all your seasons in the Premier League? massive debt and nothing else. Also what exactly is 'medical media'?

Burnley averaged a lot more than 10000 last season and Rovers averaged a lot less than 15000, so your figures are bull5hit my friend.

And we have sold just shy of 14000 season tickets - I await your answer to see how many Rivers have sold to prove your point that Blackburn 'are outselling Burnley in Season Ticket sales'

It's like shooting very ugly fish in a barrel.
Oh dear. Why would you chose to expose yourself like this?

It is because of so-called Burnley fans like you that we are such a widely detested club. The only club in East Lancashire that Burnley are bigger than is Accrington Stanley.

Someone cruelly described us as the "sloppy seconds of East Lancashire football", sadly, my fellow Clarets do nothing to diminish that view in the eyes of the many, many Blues out there.

As for stats, i suggest visiting this highly informative web site which does more than bust a few Burnley myths, myths incidentally that i was brought up on. It really does feel quite liberating when one chooses to accept reality.

The Burnley attendance myth: http://ewoodpark.jim

Accept the truth and move on.
So you are not answering any of the points I raised then?

Thought not - you have just exposed yourself as the slavering, simple no-dad you really are.

I agree, Ray. This kind of atrocious bluster from so-called Burnley fans is an intense source of acute embarrassment to many of us.

We just aren't as big as we like to think we are and it is time the 8-10,000 fan base we have just accepted that we are a small club in a small town and that there is absolutely no shame in that. Rovers are somewhat different, they are a big club in a small town. A unique footballing anomaly.

Wigan are bigger than Burnley.
Burnley and Wigan are bigger than Blackburn who have sold – given away - 7500 season tickets WOW. Need to eat a lot of chickens Neddy to pay your wage bill this year.

And yet both are still bigger than Burnley, how embarrassing for us.

We just have to recalibrate our expectations.

Mud hole is a nearly a good description for u - halfway there anyway!!
Sorry pal, if that's directed at me I haven't got a clue what you're on about. Mud holes? Call myself a claret? eh?

I'm simply making a point that you have, in my opinion, the next England right back in your team and out of the three star players of last season the one I think will stand out is Trippier.

I think you are over estimating your ability to pick an England team there, Chuck.

He was lucky enough to gain promotion with an unpopular and unfashionable club but he will suffer the second season syndrome. I doubt the Premier League will be a happy stomping ground unless he moves to a club with pedigree.

Burnley lack facilities and ambition. We simply to not have the profile. It saddens me to point out such unpalatable truths.

Burnley are tiny.
And yet 'Tiny' Burnley are better supported, have a much better team, much more money, less debt and are about to compete in the biggest league in the world, all of which Trampburn will NEVER EVER DO AGAIN.

Second season syndrome? even though he hasn't played in the Premier League yet? How does that work you absolute dullard?
Yet more atrocious bluster from a fellow Claret.

The Venkys have far more money than our owners, Rovers debt is owned to the Venkys, Rovers spent two decades in the Premier League, have a world class stadium, world class academy and medical media facilities.

Your first point about being better supported is what makes Burnley such an unpopular club.

Again Chuck, Rovers may have averaged 15,000 last season, down from 25,000 but they were barely in the top six all season and Burnley were barely out of the top two, yet they still averaged more than Burnley's 10,000 and are outselling Burnley in Season Ticket sales and have been doing so since the mid 1970's.

I'd keep the inflated figures of 15,000 missing fans to yourself because even with those "15,000 missing fans" they still out supported us.

That is the brutal truth.
World class stadium???? Have you been there?

Of course u av - u have a season ticket there!!
