There's a great video of Skipp on here where he's playing for the u19's against Real Madrid when he was around 16/17.I remember when Poch put him in the first games he played and how industrious he was using space even when not getting the ball he would make himself available for a pass.He could see the angles. This is vision.
As time went on he was never afraid to either go forward or forward the play. That's what I liked about him.
I want to see more of him this season.He doesnt look like a DM to me as he is less conservative than most DMs. It will be great if he could get some gigs in the domestic cups in a more central role
It's one of the most complete CM performances I've seen from a kid of that age. Keeping possession, passing, throughballs, tackling, intercepting, chasing back, bringing the ball out.
I agree he's more than just a DM and we'll see him becoming more progressive in his role once he starts to establish himself.
