Sounds good from KWP, also excited about Skipp after him winning the PL2 September POTM as surely he’s one of the younge r players there. Pochettino surely has to be at the point where he’s assessing if there’s greater worth in player these two than Aurier (who I actually like) and Sissoko.
Since KWP won the award in the 15/16 there has only been one other defender (Rice) that has won the award since, which shows how rare it is for a defender and well he must have been playing and he hasn't go very far. The fact that he is still hoping for a massive injury problem before getting another opportunity should tell you all you need to know about what to expect for Skipp

Just needs poch to start practicing what he preaches about bravery and start giving opportunities the ones closest to the first team

Louis Ramsey (released by us as an U16) is on the Leicester bench as well. He spent two years at Norwich, one of those on loan at Woking, before getting released in the summer. Leicester picked him up shortly afterwards.

Onomah on bench again. If he can’t hold down a place in Villa or Wednesday teams it’s quite hard to see how he will be good enough for us. To get in our team you’d think he’d have to be seen as their best player like Maddison or Grealish were/are in their respective teams.

Oh he may have a knock lol.

Didn’t see the game but hearing roles goal was very very good . Still trying to work out why the lad is not given the attention by tottenham that other youngsters are getting . So he’s the only player this season to score in champions league game , pL2 game , Checkatrade game and still scoring all different types of goals but still promote the same old players . I hope we do something with him before someone else does

Preach. KWP should get his minutes and we should have sold him after he had his highest possible value, kind of surprising Levy didn't recognize that opportunity. KWP is the future and we need to start letting that future shine. Skipp taking Sissokos minutes would be refreshing as well.
Yeah would have been ideal business to sell Trippier in summer tbh.

He’s very good at free kicks but defensively and open play I feel KWP is the better option long-term.

Is his problem strength, I saw a few games were he was brushed aside a few times. Isn’t this the concern

Just my opinion on Roles but he’s not a player that really makes you sit up and take notice. Yes there’s end product as in goals but it’s just a little bit laboured. But I guess much was said the same of Kane. I just think it will be incredibly tough for him when you think he’s essentially competing with eriksen dele moura Son Lamela for a starting spot. You to look at someone like Townsend and say even if he got to that level. A very accomplished PL player and England international, he still wouldn’t get a look in with us. I think it’s where someone like Edwards has more of a chance imo just because he has that wow factor, even though I’d rate Edwards chance as slim.
