    I'd rather he went to a Championship club and played every week than a PL and was in and out of the side.

    We may find out soon enough! I'm hopeful Fulham will take on Skipp for the season, that could work very well for both clubs and player. If we were to be conservative perhaps a championship team that'd be fighting for the title would also be productive but given that the lad has started in PL games and looked comfortable I wonder if that would be the boldest move.

    My opinion is that wherever it is, Skipp should be getting at least 30 games under his belt, it looks clear that we're going to strengthen in his position so now is surely perfect time. Hojbejrg / KWP announced and Oliver headed to Craven Cottage works nicely for me and things would start to shape up in terms of how we'll look.

    That is an excellent loan for him. Let's see if he gets regular games for them.

    Good move, he needs game time, generally I've liked what I've seen but he sometimes is a touch over eager.

    A full season of regular games should get him more settled ..

    Good for Skipp to get the loan. It was either that or he gets 25 minutes cameos in the Europa and League cups.

    Happy to be proven wrong but don't really see him being our level. Reckon after this Norwich loan, Levy will do a KWP on him.

    Could this be a sweetener for a player coming in from Norwich?

    We seem to be pretty close to them right now. We had our post-Covid break warm up against them too.

    That's how it works ..

    - He either does a Kane and becomes a player that fits our level
    - Or he does a KWP, Livermore, Mason, Carroll, CCV, Onamah, Bentaleb, etc and keeps the funding of our academy going

    Very good loan for him. Hopefully they'll be near the top in the championship and he'll be playing week in, week out

    He'll then come back to Spurs next summer at a good time when we'll need to work out the right balance for our midfield and be able to answer some questions: is Ndombele going to knuckle down and stay at Spurs? Is there a player in Gedson which suits us and the PL? Given Sissoko will be 32, how many more years can his body support his high-energy game?

    Norwich fans appear pleased at the prospect, hopefully a solid season as a starter will be the making of him.

    Will 'Arry Redknapp be remembered for bringing 'top top' to the English language?

    Synonymous with that and ‘2 points from 8 games’ and ‘he’s a great lad, never had a moments bother from him’*.


    * usually always a complete lie when trying to offload Adebayor etc.

    Great move for him (and us), Norwich have good coaches and like to play the game through the middle. Looking forward to seeing him get regular football and i believe he will be a very good player.
