Lucky to go in at half time, haven’t played great but we are ahead so hopefully we can kick on 2nd half. Skipp once again out of his depth, he should be nowhere near our squad let alone team #THFC #COYS

I have seen a number of youngsters down the years and they have looked promising and hit the ground running.
If people are saying this skipp is the next star I am less than impressed he should not be on this pitch today terrible the game has passed him by

Great to be winning here considering it’s 12 men vs 10 men.
I’m sure Skipp will be a good player but he looks like a boy on a pitch with men atm. Which is probably true tbf to him.
Shout out to Harry Winks – if you still don’t rate this kid then you are a fool.
