    The first player born in the 21st century to play a Premier League game for us too and the youngest player to play for Tottenham since Gareth Bale 11 years ago.

    A few traits Poch seem to like in a CM are size/physical presence, workrate, tenacity, consistency, mobility and reliability plus being technically proficient.

    Skipp seems to score highly against all these, so hopefully the first of many appearances

    His feinted pass to Rose was nearly an assist for the assist. Very well picked.

    Looked great in the air in the short time he had on the pitch, perhaps it was against a Saints team that where tired and no longer interested but looked to really impose himself on the game.

    Done well.

    18 years old, let's not forget that. Made one monstrous tackle in the first half and was comfortably on the ball. Did turn into trouble a few times but that's to be expected from someone so young and inexperienced. Didn't shy away from the ball though and actually made some real nice forward passes which were fizzed through with accuracy.

    Keep working hard and you'll be a star here Skippy!

    Does this mean we have seen the last of Onamah (in the THFC kit?)

    edit - Just wondering nothing against the lad but it appears he may have beeen superseded.

    Did not embarrass himself at all. Welcome to the first team proper Oliver

    Unless he gets given a chance in pre-season next summer, more than likely.

    Thought he did well when enduring a difficult game, clearly dealt with being roughed a bit and now getting space to play.

    Hard to judge a player from a game like that but he did well, this experience will do him well.

    Yep. I also suggested he will be breaking through this season and was told by a certain puppy it's stupid to expect anything from "random youth players".

    Maybe Skipp is to Onomah as Winks was to Tom Carroll

    Got very high hopes for this one. Early days but I rate him higher than Winks I absolutely love his touch and tenacity

    Ps not that I don't rate Winks, I just love the look of this kid, he's a blend of Parker, Dembele & Winksy & the kind I love seeing come through the academy

    That was a good, physical test for the young lad. Did very well, and I look forward to seeing him play for spurs a lot more in the future.

    Did well today. What impressed me was that he took responsibility more than once. Dropping into cover CB and being there when it was necessary. Too many young players tend to hide.

    What will be will be, but for today he should be proud of himself.

    Now work even harder ! Good luck with your career fella
