Really impressed by what I see of this kid. Seems to have ability aligned with a fierce mentality which is what you need to make it to the top in any profession. Going to be the next big thing for us I feel.

The tipping point for me was watching him in the u23s last year against City who were fielding a very strong side (Foden, Diaz etc) and were stuffing us 5-0.
The rest of our side were going through the motions as they wanted to get off that pitch as soon as possible.
But Skipp was still chasing back, he was still demanding the ball, and still trying to get forward with it. It didn't seem to register with him that it was a lost cause (as it had been from kick off).
As the old saying goes, you can't teach that. And, as with Kane, I think he'll do whatever is necessary to succeed at the highest level.
