    We need Skipp. We need players who give a fudge.

    I don't think it makes a difference who we offload. He looks a level above Winks and Sissoko already (can argue that he needs to prove it in the Premier League).
    He should be back up to PEH even if Winks and Sissoko are still here next season.

    My point was not necessarily'who' we off load but 'can' we offload them. If Winks and Sissoko remain and Skipp returns it only adds to what Jose has described as a 'too big' squad. Skipp can be promoted but if it leaves Sissoko or Winks redundant or unable to be included in squads or lists the financial side of the club won't like that. Also either of those players could still take games off Skipp.

    Plus there is a 50/50 chance we'll have a new manager next season who could view things differently.

    You know, this kid is the only good thing about this club right now.

    I don't care if he doesn't do a single thing in his career - I'm grateful to Skippy for being the one bit of optimism in an unrelentingly awful 2021.

    Think you will find that there is a great crop of youngsters here now
    We will see that over the next 3/4 years

    Hope so, mate. Would be a small consolation.

    Don't forget it was Mourinho that gave Devine and Scarlett their debuts.

    The first 2 IMO
    Devine will
    I mean we know the names
    What I like is their hunger
    The players tonight and at the weeken and just too many times now for too long have been passive with no desire
    It’s not healthy for the club
    Skipp coming in next season will be of massive value for us
    Watching sisoako tonight not only was he poor with the ball he was out run without it
    Skipp can play instead of and with Hojbjerg
    Parrots won’t for a few seasons at least IMO if at all

    Skipp has done well at Norwich. But it’s not Premiership level.

    Lets not ruin the kid, he is better off as far away from this club as possible at the moment.

    No
    But he has stood out by some way
    And he will be a year older and wiser
    Don’t under estimate the demands of the championship

    He's done excellent. One of the first names on the team sheet of a team that is running away with the championship at the age of 19.
    He's got no obvious weaknesses, good tackler, reads the game well, passes the ball really well and forward and seems to have a really good attitude.
    Nobody is saying that he will be next Xavi or whatever, but he does look promising and is already an upgrade on a couple of players here.
