Yea but he's not preferable to Ndombele or Sissoko in a CM 2. Think he can be in a starting CM 3 if we rest Dele and are without a CAM, but that is not our best XI anyways, imo. His forward play is just not that great, and his defense is lacking the things you'd want in a CDM.Wasn’t his best game, but he really wasn’t that horrible.
He is certainly not a DM and if played in a 2 CM formation, he needs a DM. I’d like to see him playing with NDombele and a DM.
Fixed it for youI’m really torn on Winks. He’s the player more than any other that I swing from thinking he’s a key potential cog or doesn’t really fit in.
He can tackle recklessly, he can pass mostly sideways, he shows for the ball and gives it away , he works hard like a headless chicken....but, more often than not we look a bit better with him out the team
Probably sacrilegious, but I don’t think Sissoko should be anywhere near our starting 11. If anything, impact sub as a RW for energy/athleticism. Winks is absolutely preferred to Sissoko. From the little I’ve seen of NDombele, he is much preferred to Winks. That said, I’d like to see how they play together when they don’t have to worry about having someone competent behind them.Yea but he's not preferable to Ndombele or Sissoko in a CM 2.

Squad CM to me right now, as is Dier at CDM.
Not sure everyone is going to get et the sarcasm !
Why would they want a backwards passing League One player!?
This. He's not a DM and can't play in our current formation without a really good DM alongside.He shouldn’t be first choice at his current level, but he is a legitimate option and can play well. But, he cannot play as a CM2 without a DM.
