Tottenham fans call for Winks sale as star's decline continues
Tottenham fans have had their say on struggling Harry Winks.
The 25-year-old Spurs midfielder is a shell of his former self.
Whilst impressive in possession, Winks just doesn’t create enough or have the defensive nous for the fans’ liking.
Many of them are calling for his exit, even if just a matter of years ago he was one of their brightest young stars.
An article from The Athletic really highlights Winks’ fall from grace.
It’s not been long at all since he was starring England and in the Champions League for Spurs.
Yet now he can’t get a string of games in the Premier League and is out of favour with Nuno Espirito Santo.
It was the same with Jose Mourinho last season and maybe it’s time for Winks to go.
That’s what the fans think at least.
Tottenham fans have their say on struggling Harry Winks
He’s on a respectable £50k-a-week and the Lilywhites would likely be able to gain a fee of up to £20m for him.
There are just too many players ahead of Winks at Spurs now, though.
In creative midfield areas there’s Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli.
Whilst in the pivot and in defensive areas of midfield there’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp.
That has Winks down as at least the 6th choice, and Nuno probably fancies a couple of academy stars above him at the moment too.
This really is a sad situation.
No Tottenham fan will begrudge Winks.
He clearly loves Tottenham and gives his all for the badge every time he plays.
Yet it looks like time is up for him at Spurs, especially seeing as he’s lost the love of a lot of the fans.
What have the supporters said?
Absolutely, it’s the same as Dele, somewhere along the line he’s lost all confidence and now he struggles to do the basics right consistently. Wouldn’t be a surprise to see him rekindle his career somewhere else starting every week, but his race is run at Spurs I think.— Chris. (@spurslogic_) October 14, 2021
Passing backwards and sideways doesnt cut it. Very rarely plays a ball between the lines to start an attack, doesn’t have the physical ability to be able to tackle and play holding midfield. Unfortunately for him every other ENG player can do what he does plus more— Neil Monaghan (@NeilMonaghan619) October 14, 2021
Yes definitely. It’s a great shame his career hasn’t progressed. These things happen with players who show lots of early promise. A move might re ignite his career. And Tottenham need the money to strengthen the squad.— Terry Dignan (@TerryDignan) October 14, 2021
He has never recovered from injury at Turf moor…and like Dele he has regressed….maybe a change would be best for all parties….— Shuban (@TheRealShuban) October 14, 2021
He needs a change in scenery to rejuvenate his career. It’s just not going to happen here and he needs to accept that— Joe (@JoeGftbl) October 14, 2021
It’s a shame because he comes across as a nice guy, but his race is run at the club. Shocking regression. Never checks his shoulders; takes an age to make decision & when he does it goes sideways or backwards. Not sure what he does?— Dyllun Vadher (@IttoReborn) October 14, 2021
Yes. He obviously loves the club but sometimes it is right for a change. I think it will benefit everyone.— Charlespurs (@SpursCompendium) October 14, 2021
He has to be sold in January! Not good enough for spurs. Doesn’t fit the team.— Matt Bamber (@matt_bamber) October 14, 2021
