    But when Ryan Mason was on the team, we had plenty of mercenaries. He was key to starting a change in the team's culture Poch's first year. Adebayor, Kaboul, Capoue....fuckers like that were dominating our squad. I remember we were fucking terrible in a League Cup game, I think against Forrest. Poch brought on Mason, he scored, lost his shit and stayed in the side for the rest of the season. Ryan Mason was a very important player in helping Poch establish the culture and identity we have now.

    I dont agree about Adebayor and Kaboul (one just had too many personal problems and the other was injured more often than not) but Forest was definitely Mason's level.

    He’s been placed in a difficult situation playing a role that isn’t totally suited to him, but has been at the heart of many of pur best recent performances.

    There is a section of the fanbase who, earlier this season, got completely down on Winks despite it being clear he was struggling to get back to match fitness. He’s now at that point, but most of the naysayers still can’t admit they were wrong about him.

    He really did nothing wrong besides the giveaway in added time. He lacks the creativity in the final third, but that's what the other players are for. Did his job well.

    I was torn between him and Son (again) for MOTM.

    The only bit of doubt I had with him today was that it seemed he went missing for a 15-20 min spell.

    That could of been due to the switch in formation, though.

    He is exceptional in matches that we dominate possession, like today.

    Winks has really stepped up this month. Exceptional work rate. A few mistakes towards the end but I am writing those up to fatigue

    Agreed. Did his job well today.

    Thankfully there's an eight day break as he's been flogged since Christmas (and never let us down)

    he's doing well in a position that is not right for him, but he needs to be stronger, he just isn't powerful enough when defending,

    Maybe but he is not a DM, he is covering a role that is not really suited to him.

    I'll echo others that he's really come on lately. Specifically it used to be that he always would receive the ball and pass immidiately to keep things ticking. He's added better situational awareness now, so that he spot situations where he can drive with the ball to great effect to open up space.

    A quick nod of appreciation to Winksy.

    Was concerned at how he was playing when he initially came back from that ankle fracture, but he's really starting to come into his own now (who knows, perhaps the departure of Dembele has given him a mental lift that he's the main man).

    MOTM-tier performance yesterday in spite of being alongside a misfiring Eriksen. Really really good (ALSO GET THE KID A SMILY ALREADY).
