Norwich linked to Lewis O'Brien

If Brentford rate him, sign him up. They are the best team in this division and will clearly storm the PL, probably winning it in their first season.

Brentford's recruitment over the past few years has been fantastic, so if they're interested it's a good indication that he's pretty decent!

Yeah, just taking the pee out of the recent cult of Brentford on here.

It’s probably either agent talk or Huddersfield trying to inflate his price anyway.

I would say Skipp replacement except he's 5ft 7. Thought one of our flaws last time we were in the Prem was we were too lightwight? 🤔

 

Still, very very highly rated by Huddersfield fans

Skipp is also 5ft 7 and I doubt anyone would complain if we managed to get him for another season.

O'Brien looks like a decent player though - his highlights video reminds me of a cross between Skipp and Gary Holt.

"The Sun had claimed Town were using an outside agency to try and cash in on a player they claimed was attracting interest from Burnley and Newcastle.

However, local newspaper the Huddersfield Examiner subsequently reported that those claims were false and that the Terriers were keen to keep hold of one of their best players.''

The Sun, well I never 🤭

Skipp is undoubtedly a very good Championship player but if we want to survive in the Premier League we need better. Before people shout me down and tell me how wonderful he is just consider how many Premier League clubs tried to get him on loan. 

If we are intetested in someone who is 5ft 7 he must be a hell of a player

Skipps taller than 5ft7, not massively so but he is. Wikipedia reckons 5ft9, not sure if accurate but sounds right.

Certainly taller than 5'7", not that height hinders the naturally gifted players (there are so many examples).

I will happily state that given his performances this season, Skipp will be a regular in a PL team next season!

Lets hope its ours.

I think the football authorities will recognise just what a side Brentford are. I’m assuming they will be automatically placed into the champions league after gaining promotion to the prem . 

After winning the champions league , the FA will seek dispensation for all Brentford players to be eligible for the National team - and win the World Cup . 
 

Hurrah !

What a weird argument.

He's not good enough for the Premier League because Premier League clubs didn't want to take him on loan aged 19 with only 23 games under his belt?

By that logic we should have upgraded Buendia when we last went up- after all we managed to sign him without any Premier League clubs going after him...

Blimey yes Leeds I’d forgotten about them. I reckon Brazil will make all Leeds players eligible for their national team - setting up an enthralling Leeds v Brentford World Cup Final. 
Football is in a great place folks.

I don’t agree, he will be a different player in the summer having played forty odd games for us, it will have aided his development massively. He’s at an age where he is improving quickly (as we’ve seen) so why would he not be ready for PL football next season, either for us or Spurs or somebody else.

+1. What a ridiculous reason as to why Skipp isn't good enough for the Premier league.

It's not a weird argument at all. No Premier League clubs wanted him last summer. Spurs could have recalled him in January to loan to a Premier League club but no one wanted him. He is a very good Championship player but these days that is a million miles away from being a good Premier League player. Sorry, but he's just not good enough.

Weren't Fulham interested in taking him? Anyhow is there any proof that a year in the Prem where he might not play every game is any better than a year in the Championship? Look at how a full season for Derby benefitted Mount and Tomori. The other obvious point is that he is 20 years old, and footballers improve as they play games, Skipp had been training with the Spurs first team for the best part of 2 seasons, but his development was held back due to the fact he wasn't playing games (didn't play at youth level either).

Maybe for similar reasons no premier league team was trying to take Maddison off our hands before the 2017/18 season.

Skipp is 20 years old and this is the season he is proving his worth in the championship. I imagine he will only get better from here. With or without us he will be playing top flight football next season.

It's a very weird argument still.

If we go up and try to resign him that means a Premier League club want him which by your logic means he would be good enough?

I assumed we couldn't afford to keep making the extra long shorts he needed.

I fail to see how anyone can think he is a Premier League player. He is certainly an extremely good Championship player but the gulf is now huge.

Spurs considered recalling him in January. Was it to re-loan elsewhere? Even if it was they soon realised the folly in that as he is guaranteed to start here when fit. He is an integral cog in the wheel and nobody is better at the club in the role he performs. Outside the top 8 he would get into and improve the midfield in most Premier league sides

I fail to see how you can be so certain that he's not good enough. The fact Spurs view him as one of their best young prospects suggests they view him as someone with the potential to be a Premier League player.

If you think we're going to be signing several players who've already proven they can cut it in the Premier League I'd suggest you'll be disappointed.
