    For me the comparisons to Modric are completely valid - but when talking about the style of player.

    I genuinely feel they have a lot in common, and Winks can grow into the sort of midfielder Modric is.

    Would be foolish to expect the same of him right now though, as you point out so well.

    But is courage the right word in this contaxt? Absolutely no way Winks is short of courage.

    Someone else offered the word 'bite.' Now I'd be happy to go along with that, but lets remember CMs as tough and hardbitten as Modric are almost as rare as Luka himself.

    Definitely thought he was courageous against Dortmund receiving the ball under pressure when they were pressing intensely in the first half. Quite a few situations where even a small error could have cost a potentially hugely consequential goal against.

    Modric can (could) do that more, mainly because for most of his career when we've seen him he's been a better player.

    This lad has been outstanding for us this season.
    No, he's not Luka mkII or even close but he has been thrown in at the deep end and coped far better than we deserve.
    Poch owns this lad big time.
    He has performed 'above a beyond' for his club but we must never think he is the solution to our midfield woes. He must have better and more experienced people around him.

    A bright spot in a patchy season.

    I like his character!
    Sadly I think he's just off the calibre we require as we move 'supposedly upwards'. He may have the potential but today I'm not sure.
    He has like I say been outstanding and given everything in every game he played in and Spurs through and through.
