Dyche improved Trippier no doubt.

As for Howe I’m sure when he looks back at his career he’ll be able to reflect on a job well done at that club.

Few journos claiming he has a job lined up. I’d be surprised. Perhaps Palace?
Hopefully Palace. West Ham other possibility?

Re: Matty Cash

Just watched his highlights reel on YouTube, he looks slightly better than Lowton, would definitely not be spending £15m on him , there must be a better right back in Europe for a better price Always a good idea to judge a players career off a you tube highlights package. Makes you wonder the point...

Foster,
