    Don't know why you can't rotate 2 from 3 of Ndombele, Hojbjerg and Skipp. Hojbjerg is capable of forward passes/runs if it's him and Skipp. 30-40 games each if shared equally.

    Those 3 for the deeper positions work for me - it's just whether Skipp is ready to be that involved and whether he'd be trusted enough if we were in the CL.

    Watched him play today for some of the Norwich game, he was doing two things quite a bit

    - Harrying role, but like PEH sometimes does
    - Drop into middle of CB pairing when Norwich pushes up, somewhat like Dier at his best in the DM role.

    Next game is a big one for them, against 2nd place side, win that and the automatic promotion looks really likely

    Good shout Rizla.
    They play Brentford on this Weds 3rd at 5.30 on Sky Action, whatever that is. So streams might exist. Brentford are decent so it should be an OK test of the boy.

    Agreed that it's a good problem to have.

    In an ideal world perhaps another loan would be good. In this world, with us looking rather desperate for reinforcements elsewhere I'm not sure we can prioritise an expensive deep midfielder when we have the option of Skipp.

    Skipp or someone like Neves next season? Neves for me all day. Skipp and an extra however many millions used to strengthen the centre back position... Not so obvious.

    1:11 in.... the chest control and pass to Pukki. Very good indeed.
    Something else noticeable to me is that he hits his passes nice and firmly (something I have always been critical of Winks not doing).

    Winks has the leg strength of a 8 year old girl. Honestly he needs to be iniesta in la liga or something

    You don’t need leg strength to hit a crisp pass, just good technique.

    Winks is not someone I would associate with having poor technique ... he has no power whatsoever. There have been plenty of players that have no technique but can hoof a ball.

    If this continues he would be one of the few at Spurs to win an actual league title. :p

    Well clearly you need to have 'some' leg strength.... But my 10 year old nephew has enough leg strength to hit a crisp pass so every single professional footballer in the world will be fine.

    Skipp channelling his inner Hojdjberg right at the death with a brilliant block

    Great block. The bits of the game I did see he looked to be miles ahead of Winks in his defensive work, tracking players and getting tackles in.
    Looks like Norwich are promoted now, so he should either get games in the premier league with them or else back with us.

    He is more defensive
    Plays just like Hojdjberg

    His passing looks to be better than Hojbjerg, but that is with a lot more time than he would get in the premier league.
    A great prospect either way.

    Hojdjergs is great IMO
    I say that as one of the vocal against signing him
    He ha been brilliant for us and Hojdjberg plays so similarly to him having here next season could be a huge boost
