Harry Winks

I've defended him before but starting to think he's nothing more than a squad player.

If City were indeed offering 40 million for him we should take the money and run.

Yeah - I came in here to pretty much say what the above poster said.

I've defended Winks for a long time, he's been playing out of position long enough that I feel he's just grown too comfortable. I forgot he was even playing in the second half, but you couldn't miss him in the first half.... which half did we perform better in?

He's not adding anything to the team at the moment that Hojbjerg can't - and at least Hojbjerg is physically stronger.

Winks is fine as a squad player. 2-0 up with 20 minutes to play? Bring Winks on to rest a first team player, have him keep the ball and see the game out. Leyton Orient on Tuesday? Yeah, play Winks.

But the quicker we can replace him with Gio Lo Celso in our starting eleven, the better.
 
If he insists on the double-pivot he's got a problem because Winks and Sissoko/PEH doesn't work. Winks and GLC would be better but that means GLC plays deeper.

Ideally a proper DM alongside Tanguy and GLC in a midfield 3 would be best.

With an attacking LB instead of a holding one we either need to play 2 of Winks, Sissoko or PEH or play 3 at back.

ENIC OUT NOW !!! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Tragic waste of a starting spot - just hoofing the ball and losing possession. Once Tanguy is fit he should be nowhere near the first 11 - better yet - cash in now while his stock is semi decent
 
I watched him a lot today. Gets into space, receives the ball, moves it on, rarely, if ever dribbles or takes a man on. Gets in a few tackles but rarely disrupts attacking play. As I have said before, the modern day John Pratt.
Love him and his passion for the club but things are passing him by as this team grows..

He’s suited to a possession based game unfortunately, he does do that well.
