Personally i dont agree with the abuse winks gets, i love watching him play, yesterday wasnt great but he was better than the other harry
You cant learn athleticism though, at least not to the level that Winks needs to get to for the DM role.I remember when he was the standout player when we played Real Madrid at the Bernabou. That was 2017 when we had a stacked Midfield. I personally feel we should’ve kept Dembele around so Winks could learn from him more. Winks is a very likeable player and I think he’s been let down by a combo of our recruitment and poor performances, not just by him but our midfield in general. We need to focus on building a more compact ball retention style of play in mid as at the moment we get bullied in the midfield which is never good...
Everyone was better than Kane. Winks is a limited player, decent enough for squad rotation but nowhere near good enough to play week in week out.Personally i dont agree with the abuse winks gets, i love watching him play, yesterday wasnt great but he was better than the other harry
I agree, his physical attributes may not stack up against others but he is very mobile and a tidy player generally. I can see he wants to make us tick in the middle of the park but he needs that dominant mid player that will slow him to play with more freedomYou cant learn athleticism though, at least not to the level that Winks needs to get to for the DM role.
Preach.Winks doesn’t have enough in his locker for peeps to say he needs the luxury of a DM alongside. To free him to do what?
Recycle possession along the back line? It’s not enough.
Sisskos lack of creativity, and Lamelas extra touch and poor final ball means as a three working the central spaces the other night meant we rarely got out of our own half.
our forwards just don’t get enough service
we love that he’s spurs and a decent fella and a quick turn, burst of pace, but not the lack of ambition and creativity that follows it
offers nothing defensively other than marking space
If he's terrible on defense and offers nothing offensively then why is he fine as a squad player?Preach.
He legit offers nothing. Terrible on defense and brings nothing offensively.
Fine as a squad player, we shouldn't sell but he should be playing cup games, being a sub and in a three for rotation only.
He actually looked better on Friday in that pairing because sissoko didn’t run around like a headless chicken and stayed in position. Nobody looks good as a one man midfield against three players.Still for me hard to judge as again played him alongside Sissoko (gah those two together...) rather than a proper 4-3-3 with a specialist defensive midfielder in there.
I think he should be a double 8, or mezzala, either side of a 6. He and his game is limited in the double pivot role. And we possibly have better than him in that position (Celso, Lamela, Ndombele etc)I think Winks is a very good player, could go on to be a great player. He’s just not the DM of any midfield.. He’s made for a midfield 3, where he’s not the deepest.. I have no idea why two very very top managers keep playing him there..
