“Looks like Winks will be starting” Spurs fans react to an image of forgotten man
By Bruce Grove -

Some Tottenham fans believe Harry Winks could be in line to start when the Lilywhites face Leeds United this weekend.

The midfielder has struggled to get regular game time under the last two Tottenham managers.

However, Antonio Conte’s arrival could breathe new life into his Spurs career.

The Italian will give everyone an equal chance to earn a first-team spot and Winks would be smart to take his.

It’s hard to tell when next he would start a match for Spurs. But the club posted an image of the midfielder and some of his teammates in training on their Twitter account, and fans have reacted.

Winks looked in great spirits and some of the fans believe he will probably start against Leeds United.

Here are some reactions:

Winks was once one of the quality members of the Spurs squad and it’s a pity that he has failed to impress the last few Tottenham managers.

Conte seems to prefer Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at the moment and that will limit the amount of game time Winks gets, however, if he does start against Leeds, then he will do himself a huge favour by putting in a good performance.

Dear H
I don’t want to sound like your groupie but I was very appreciative of your blog today.
Although I am Church of England by faith because my mother was, my father was Jewish. To his absolute horror, as he himself was a slight anti Semite, I went to Israel at the age of eighteen with a friend to work on a kibbutz in 1972 for seven months, leaving Israel just before the Yom Kippur war in 1973. It was a great experience and I could relate a lot of stories about my time working mainly in the dairy there, amongst other jobs there but I digress. There was a post by someone last week whom I suspect was a WHU fan who stated that Israel “had murdered thousands of Palestinians”. I found this an offensive and totally untrue statement and I answered this vile accusation. I was then advised not to write about non-football matters and I received a copious amount of down ticks which surprised me on a THFC blog. You made a good point that the East End Jews were mainly responsible for defeating Mosely and when I used to hear Yid army being chanted around the old White Hart Lane, it made me feel proud. The rise of anti Semitism in Europe and Britain makes me feel sick. I could write about this all day but during my travels throughout most of Israel, I never heard an Arab say a good word about the Jews during many conversations, and they all espoused the same mantra that they would eventually throw the Jewish people out of Palestine.
I think that one of the great attributes of the Jewish faith is that they believe in the sanctity of life unlike many of their oppressors and opponents. It never ceases to amaze me how many Christians are completely unaware that Jesus was a Jew.
Just to end my diatribe, for those of you who have ever watched Curb your Enthusiasm, the show is one of the best examples of a religion taking the p*** out of itself and being very funny into the bargain, the last episode was a humdinger!

Oh dear. I too love Jewish culture and consider myself as sensible enough to not blame entire nationalities for the actions of their leaders. As I would hope nobody hates me for the actions of that tosspot Johnson.
But to conflate recognition of the Palestinian condition and the undoubted Nakba with antisemitism is really not on. I deplore the actions and attitude of the Government of Israel as I am sure many Israelis do too.
In other matters Conte has a track record in turning footballers into professionals so there is hope for “Winky” yet.

It is your opinion it’s a load of toss. If you read it properly, I was commenting on an earlier vlog by HH regarding Levy’s discouragement of the use of the Y word. I doubt that you listened to his vlog either. Snide chump seems to be an accurate description of your posts.

Winks was never a quality member of the squad. He had potential. Busted his ankle in a dugout. Never been the same since. Not realised his potential. He will start because there is no one else.
