  1. Skipp was nowhere near it? Was Dowell being lazy in closing down.
  2. Spurs have a young left-back, Dennis Cirkin, who is rated just as highly as Skipp. Spurs and Norwich seem to have a good relationship so maybe one to look out for.
  3. Had the highest completion % of any player on the pitch.
  4. No. Better protection from midfield and lower quality opposition.
  5. They changed the point of offside from tip of the shoulder to the cuff on the arms(short-sleeve), so when Bamford was pointing where he wanted the ball the cuff of his sleeve was offside - apparently you can legally score using the part of the arm above that which is just as much a load of ****e as the offside part of the rule. I feel ridiculous having just typed that nonsense out, let alone come up with the rule in the first place.
  6. Here's a video of Skipp from a couple of years ago, ok so it's youth football but he was directly up against Jadon Sancho and pretty much dominated him all game. https://streamable.com/txmg3
  7. With Maddison and Edwards behind Oliveira.

  9. [quote user="JF"]What’s the point in playing him? The season is effectively over so why should we blood another teams player who won’t be here next season?[/quote] You don''t know that he won''t be with Norwich after the summer, bringing him in early may have been in preparation for next season. DF has said he''ll be involved soon so I guess it depends on how the next 7-8 weeks go.
  10. [quote user="king canary"]So a sweetener for selling our best player is a 6 month loan of player with an attitude problem who is apparently now fit but hasn''t even made it into the u23''s? Colour me underwhelmed.[/quote] He hasn''t come to Norwich to play for the U23s, he did enough of that at Spurs.
  11. Maybe as a favour to Pochettino who just wanted to bring him down a peg or two, creating a good relationship with Spurs might pay dividends in other ways in the future. I think the whole bad attitude thing is overplayed, he''s just a young player desperate to get playing and if he really was an issue behind the scenes then I''m sure Farke would''ve sent him packing, likewise Spurs can''t be too upset with how it''s gone so far as otherwise they''d probably have recalled him. He''s such a talented young player though, as you can see here https://streamable.com/3rgxv or here https://streamable.com/dd9t5 or here https://streamable.com/5yb6p .... These small technically-gifted players always find it a bit harder to break through in the English game but hopefully this one can get the chance soon.
