“Hertfordshire Xavi” Tottenham fans just love this player that was “Magnificent from start to finish”
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham bounced back from the humiliation at Mura in the Europa Conference League to gain three valuable points against Brentford at the Tottenham Stadium last night and one player stood out for Spurs.

Young Oliver Skipp put in a brilliant performance for the entire game and has rightly been applauded by the Tottenham faithful.

The 21-year-old was named the man of the match and came in for special praise from manager Antonio Conte.

Tottenham fans took to Twitter last night and this morning to record their comments on the young man and the vast majority of them were in agreement, he fully deserved the man of the match award.

Here are just a sample of the positive reactions from the Tottenham fans.

There were many more responses in the same vein and while it was “just” Brentford, it was still a massive improvement to some of the dross we have been served up in recent weeks and hopefully, the lads can keep up the momentum and claim another three points at the weekend against struggling Norwich City.

Interesting to note that our David Batty like midfielder was played in a more box to box role than usual during his MotM performance; a style of play which our new manager himself excelled at. I also noted Conte talking of Skipps need to improve on when and how to release the ball offensively. Maybe he sees some of himself in young Skippy?

Both Skipp, and dare I say WInks seem to have upped their game by 10% and obviously been told in no uncertain terms to stop dicking about with it in the centre circle.

Be interesting to see how long that lasts and if either or both of them manage to evolve into relatively useful players by the end of the season.

Lets not too carried away with beating teams like Newcastle, a weakened Leeds and Brentford. These are lower table teams and if we can’t beat the likes of them we’d be in a relegation battle ourselves. It’s the results against the likes of Palace, and a Man U that Arsenal rang rings around last night that are the true tests of our current level. We need reinforcements quickly, especially a playmaker and proper striker because moon boots Kane is not one at the moment.
About as much chance of finishing in the top 4 as winning the lottery.

Pardon, but didn’t Arsenal lose to ManU?

My bad. But currently Arsenal look on course to finish above us. We just need to be realistic, this team badly needs reinforcements. Of course the knee jerkers will be banging on about us being brilliant after beating a few crappy sides.

I eas talking to a gooner mate this morning and we were discussing the poor form of Auba now he has got his last big contract and has given up.

They are in real need of a proper striker and I suggested that maybe they would make a cheeky bid for Kane.He was a gooner as a schoolboy I belive.

The only thing being that Levy would never accept their offer,not because of who they are,but because it wouldn’t be high enough.His performance in the face of alleged City interest probably means City won’t bother again and then who else is there,especially if his form doesn’t pick up?

Except if we win our game in hand we’d be above them on points, so not sure how they are so definitely “on course to finish above us”

But I heard all the teams outside of a few are better run than Spurs. So, now that these terrible misfits are beating the very teams the big boys do to be where they are, the league is suddenly rubbish. Can’t miss a beat to come here and write nonesense about the club you support while you call all the other clubs great. SMH.

I love that you begin your post with the advise that we shouldn’t get too carried away, then finish with an outlandish mathematical probability comparison. :o)

He should become more instinctive to becoming an attacking midfielder once the defence is more reliable.

Long way to go for Skipp, he’s surpassed Winks in a short period. He did thread one through ball in the 2nd half.

Regardless of Skipp, Tottenham are in desperate need of a creative midfielder.

Conte the cheer leader is carrying this sorry bunch.

Not a lot. But benchmarking against 15 piles of s*** hasn’t enamored the fans for the past 22 years. To dare is to do.
