    Dele was better than Winks on Sunday IMO. I thought either Dele or Aurier was our MotM.

    i also thought that Winks did alright overall though, although his who scored stats rating was really low.

    I thought that was definitely Vorm and that Bergwijn and Dele also played worse than Winks. I actually don't think our players individually did that badly yesterday. The problem was the tactics more than the players. When the players abandoned Jose's cautious tactics after about 80 minutes we actually played with verve and pace.

    No ( imo) there were a few worse then him. I think fans are going to be tinkled off as i would imagine he will be a regular player next season. (again)

    I’ve always wondered if Winks would be more effective as a number 10.

    Can't shoot, can't pick a forward pass. How would he work there?

    Allegedly creative. Might focus him on doing those things.

    Can’t tackle either so DM isn’t blowing me away as a good fit.

    This is the problem with Winks as a player. He doesn't do any one thing to a top class level.

    Then his supporting abilities aren't strong enough to allow him true versatility. He isn't particularly quick, first instinct is to play safe passes and he can't tackle for brick. He has no presence on the field.

    Unfortunately he's a West Ham or Villa level player that we're trying to utilitise as the base for a team with CL level ambitions.

    In fairness, once Gedson and Ndombele are playing to their potential, that should be the double pivot anyway (I want GLC at number 10). Skipp will surpass Winks very soon as well.

    That said, Winks is a home grown Tottenham lad and if we don’t keep a proportion of that profile of player, we do lose something.

    He’s absolutely fine to keep in the squad and will play a role across a season. Oh, and he’s also the best English central midfielder, but that’s just funny.

    We seem to be complacent about us bringing through youth team players. Winks, Skip, Tanganga we are still producing talent which isn’t easy when playing CL.

    Winks can play very well. He can run the midfield. But he can’t do it week in and out. At the moment he’s a perfect squad player.

    Wow, I'm surprised at the harsher criticism in here. Winks played a massive number of games this year, trying to hold things together whilst others were getting acclimatised or walking about or wondering what the formation was.

    He ain't Pele, but he's pretty bloody good most of the time. He's not "blood and thunder" sliding into challenges and posting karate videos online, but he's pretty bloody good in there.

    Mind you, plenty on here don't rate James Milner (just look at what he has achieved and how much his managers/teammates love him) and likewise Jordan Henderson (who was out of the Pool team and their form collapsed)

    Saw there was an update to the Winks page.

    I’ll be honest. I’m just glad it wasn’t saying he’s injured. :)

    Vid of a few of our players at home messing about alongside I think that I am a better football fan than the rest of you doing different challenges and whatnot.

    Winks kicks a tea bag in to a mug, and then consequently adds milk to said mug.

    That's pretty clear gross misconduct IMO, and from a PR / socmed perspective it's hugely disappointing to see such a flawed approach to tea making forwarded on to the general public with little regard for proper decorum.

    It looked like a tinkley cup of milk at best
    He has had pelters for it from other players as it’s simply not tea just dipping it in for a few secs

    Milk and teabag should never be anywhere near each other. A teabag is a huge compromise in the first place so if you're going to stoop down to that level out of convenience at least do it with a vague hint of common sense - Near boiling water is needed to steep tea + Milk lowers temperature of water = Never the thwain shalll meet.

    Before anyone steps in, I'm aware I'm a massive tea snob but also that I am 400% correct. The amount of mini lectures I had to give at my old office, b'ham tea making methods are on par with their accents.

    Clearly our Winks is a stickler for BSI standards!

    Quite. I think all this "milk in first" nonsense dates back to 18th century porcelain teacups, which were of lower quality and tended to crack if you poured hot water straight into them.

    Why add milk to tea anyway?! If you want a milkshake, make a milkshake. If you want tea, make tea that tastes like tea.
