    Must admit I was surprised at the negativity towards his performances earlier in the season. I think he has been consistently good this season. Just hope he does not get injured.

    Like most young players he has his 'moments' and fans always focus on the negative.

    Would love to see England build a team around a Winks/Rice CM

    He is going to boss our CM for a long time to come (imo) he is such a natural for the game.

    Rice Winks sounds like a breakfast cereal.

    Likewise, some were even saying they thought Skipp was a better player than him, not potentially, but right now! Also that his pirouette’s reminded them of Parker.

    I’m not ragging on Skipp, but seriously, what are people seeing, or more pertinently, not seeing in Winks?!?

    Would love to see spurs build a team round them.

    Add some more pace to the team in other areas and I think we would be really exciting.

    Sounds more like a porn star to me.

    Maybe I spend as much time looking at porn as you do breakfast cereal?

    Rice looks like a classier version of Dier from what I've seen so far.

    Funny, I'd say Rice is less mobile and less versatile than Dier... Dier's a player who's true value fans fail to see until he's gone. Replacing him with Rice would be a huge mistake.

    Skipp has a better attacking pass on him than Winks (we saw it in Skipp's first few games), he's also physically stronger.

    Winks had a bad run of form early in season (not sure why everyone is arguing that), his form has picked up notably in last few weeks and is now looking more like the player we hoped last season, with a ceiling still some way off. And he does do the Parker thing ..

    Skipp, alternatively has had his down after the high of his first few performance. We all need to realize these guys are young and inexperienced, up and downs are to be expected.

    I’m not criticizing Skipp in anyway, shape, or form, he looks like he could become a solid enough player.

    I’m just wondering why some people can’t see what Winks has got and why he was being criticized. His earlier performances coming back from injury, understandably, weren’t amazing, but he was still decent enough. The overaction à month or two ago seemed ridiculous to me at the time and it still does now looking back on it.

    Also, you can’t possibly equate the Parker pirouette to the ones Winks does?! Ones were slow, pointless and slowed us down as a team, the others are sharp, create space and are generally advantageous to the team.

    I think the doubt came from "was Winks of last year a peak form performace, and was Winks of earlier this season a return to mean?" (similar to how Trippier has seemingly returned to a lower level than his best run with us). Recent play seems to suggest earlier this season was simply a young player finding his feet/form after injury, but I could see the reason for concern.

    I'm not sure the comparison is a negative thing .. they really are the only two players I can recall who regularly pirouette in a game, and Parker before his legs went was a very effective player.
