In fact the only negative to Winks is that he is having problems staying fit.

It probably means we cannot 100% rely on him for a full season, but that's where depth comes in. Huge summer ahead.

Hopefully a viable alternative will afford him the chance to recover without one eye on rushing back..... We could really do without subjecting all our key players to Kane-syndrone.

Edit: This is another reason I object to selling Lamela without direct and EPL-ready replacement.... At least if CE ever get's crocked we have another player who can play as a classic #10 in a 4231.

Even someone like Will Hughes to come in and just rotate. Ridiculous work rate that lad too
 
He controls a game.

Quite simply that's what he excels at. In a year and a half he's controlled games against Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man City and Chelsea to name but a few of the so called big clubs.

You only have to look at our results since Winks has been out injured to see where we've gone to absolute shit.

In our last 13 games of the season, Winks missed 12 of them through injury, here's how we did with him out:

Won: 3 (Huddersfield (20th), Brighton (17th), Ajax)
Draws: 2
Lost: 7

Stats can be useful when proving a point and they'll prove to you that Winks' tackle and interception stats aren't the best for a player who predominantly plays deep midfield (he's been played out of position practically all season), but his passing stats and pass completion will tell you that he's one of the best in the country at what he does.

Arthur over at Barcelona is another one where stats don't really do him justice. Fantastic footballer. Highly praised by many who have watched him this season yet he makes even LESS tackles and interceptions than Winks. Has been involved in the same amount of goals this season (1) and passing statistics in general are pretty much identical.

Getting the right personnel around him as well as someone to challenge him to be even better is essential this summer.

Though if you're going by stats, we could all sit here and wonder how the fuck Sissoko has been rated so highly by our own fans and how on earth he was in contention for our player of the year because his stats are dreadful.

One of the only players who can actually hold his head high tonight.
Wow. Couldn’t disagree with that more. All those players can hold their head up high for getting us this far. I love this club and it’s hard to take but we did amazing to get to the final. We were unlucky in key moments.
 
Played well, but had him and Kane been 100% fit that might have made a difference.
That's not meant as a criticism of either player. Kane was the man you wanted a half chance to fall to in the box but he wasn't really in the game. Winks was most likely subbed due to his lack of match sharpness, he was probably Spurs best player tonight.

Let him rest up and come back and have a great season. Same for Kane. That World Cup really killed us over the season . Top 4 and champ lge final...great effort
I am glad he isn't going to the Nations Cup in the week - deserves a rest.

Get him fighting fit over the summer, some more gym work to get him stronger and fighting fit next season with some new midfielders and hopefully some new competition to push him that extra bit.

Lad's got shit taste, honestly.

Saw it before with some Love-Island-contestant romance he had.

Then again, as long as he delivers on the pitch then I couldn't give a fuck.
He’s 23, good looking lad expect he should be going about banging as many vacuous love island type media hungry wannabes girls possible. Doesn’t need to be settling down.
