    Thought the lad had a great game in pre-season against Juve I think. Was MOTM. Obviously pre-season isn't the same as the PL but given that he's 19 and Wanyama looks about as mobile and useful as me, I think Poch should be giving Skipp some minutes.

    I agree. I prefer to see our Youth come through and given a chance than hang on to players on the downward momentum or just signing another body for the sake of it.

    I always ignore performances of young players in pre-season as typically they are playing at 400% while first team type players are playing at about 50% Skipp needs to be getting minutes out on loan somewhere and we need to be finding a proper first team defensive minded midfield in January (even if it is just a temporary patch fix)

    Watched Skipp play for the U21 last week he was outstanding against a high class Dutch outfit.
    I hope he gets his chance!

    What sort of role was he playing? Sitting in front of back 4, getting forward into final third, controlling game with his passing? I like the look of him, and am intrigued to see exactly what kind of player he is going to turn into.

    Interesting - wonder how close he is to being ready for regular games for us, given that holding midfielder is a position lots of us think we could do with strengthening.

    He is too good for 'youth' football and needs to be playing mens football (out on loan).

    He is learning nothing at the moment and just stagnating.

    I agree about Winks, he is beginning to look the player he looked when he first broke into the team. He has had a bad time with injurys so slipped back a bit but he is showing that he is getting fit again.

    And as you say a loan move for Skipp could be a good move for both him ,ad the club.

    You know you want to have a go at a pun, don't quaver at the thought.
    Just give it a try and you'll soon pick up the Nik-nak of it.
