Why do people call Winks a rat? I must have missed something, where does this come from?

I don't rate him as a player and I think he should be replaced. I've said before, I think he looked better when we had better players overall at the club. The likes of Dembele, Eriksen, Dele either went, regressed or a combination of both and Winks is just shown to be a fairly average player, in my opinion.

But yeah, why do some of you call him a rat? lol

I think some people think that he was complaining behind the scenes to media members at the end of Jose's time at Spurs because of a lack of playing time.

Mate, I was talking about HOME GROWN players only!

....we also had Ricky Villa, Carrick, Modric, Davids, VDV, Berbatov, and Bale.... and they were all great! But we BOUGHT them!

The point being, the HOME GROWN talent, unless outstanding (like Hoddle & Perryman) will eventually get dogs abuse if they're NOT as good as the players,we pay a fee for!
Fair enough
I only read your first paragraph!
 
At the end of the day Harry Winks is an academy product of Spurs and I’ll always be proud of him for that.

I think £25mil is a great price considering how bad the last 18 months has been for him.

That’s the purpose of the academy, if they don’t progress, sell them for profit, nothing personal.

I certainly backed him heavily and have been disappointed at how things have stalled for him. Needs a change of scenery IMO

One of my main issues with the HG rule is that it forces clubs to retain players which are not quite good enough, which is bad for both clubs and players.
 
Is the Everton link legit?
Levy does not confer with me, and I can't understand the native tongue of Liverpool, but it makes sense/
Everton are always in need of CMDs. Winks can move to a limited number of sides in England considering wages and expectations. West Ham are off the table, Newcastle too turbulent atm, Villa\Wolves\LCFC aren't in need. So Everton makes good sense.
And I can't see a foreign club paying good money for him.

Thanks

Both Gomes and Davies are superior options - hope they take him

Look he's a Spurs fan came threw the academy and all that but if he's here at the end of the transfer window I hope he knows he is last choice midfield if we go 433

Hojbjerg, Celso, Ndombele, Dele, Skipp are ahead of him & would just be blocking Nile John's development
