Bollocks, I was ready to watch this but ended up forgetting about it until just now. Would someone be kind enough to tell me how it went? I see the score was 3-0, how did we play? Any youngsters look good?

It will be a crime if we dont use Skipp as much as possible this year. Last year's player of the season (who played every game for the winners) in the Championship, home grown, in a position we are crying out for some ability. I thought he was a cut above before he went to Norwich - but that loan has made him an even better player, working under an excellent manager in Farke who trusted a loanee to be the engine room of his side
We need to offload both else our season and the whole DoF appointment is a write-off. It would also proved Nuno is a clueless wankstain which I very much would like to believe notIf we don’t sell one of winks or sissoko or both this summer then the transfer window will have been a failure. Mainly sissoko.

I suspect the big problem is Sissoko is 32 in August, has 2 years left on his contract and is on high wages.
The French league is really skint - huge problems with their TV contract which will give clubs less than last season. So number of French clubs willing to buy a player on high wages is really low.
Sadly we may end up having to retain him (although I hope not) but I hope that Nile John and Alfie Devine get some playing time as both might, just might, be good enough to gain enough experience playing at Spurs to not to need a loan, with a view that the need to play Sissoko reduces.
Winks is more saleable - but not replaceable other than by HG players as we would have too many overseas trained players. So the potential to upgrade isn't there this summer, and most likely scenario is 'one of our own' (or even two or three of our own) showing themselves to be better over the next year or two.
I agree, but he managed 45 appearances for Norwich last season which is crazy good for that age. Ever present in winning the leagueI suspect he will play a lot of games. He looks built for the premier league but let’s hope we don’t burn him out like we did with Holbjerg last season.
