I don't know about you guys but I love getting excited about who our next superstar is going to be coming through the ranks.
So, to get away from all this manager lark I'd like to post a few articles for you lovely people on some of our brightest prospects. First up, Harry Winks. Born in 1996, Winks is a central midfielder who has been part of our academy for two years. He has featured most predominantly for the u18s but has also played starring roles for our u21s in particular against that lot down the road where he also scored a fine goal.
He has featured for England u17s on several occasions and has even made our first team bench on occasion this season but is yet to get his first minutes. So, that's the boring facts out the way, now onto what he's actually about.
Well, as stated he's a central midfield player, who also look like that lad from one direction... His style of play I can only compare to that of Luka Modric, (don't worry I'm not saying he's going to be our next saviour...yet), but unlike Modric has shown more of a tendency to break forward and certainly has a goal in him. He's what I like to call a deep lying playmaker. Someone who is the 'link' man. Picks the ball from the defence and gets it forward.
He has fantastic vision who often cuts through the opposition defence with his accuracy. For someone so young he is very composed on the ball but perhaps most impressively is the weight of his passing, a rare attribute for someone so young and inexperienced. Similar to Luka Modric he knows what he's about to do before he gets the ball and more often than not makes the correct decision.
So, there you have it. A short player profile on a youngster I'm probably most excited about out of any of our academy players. If you don't believe me or want to see for yourself there's highlights of the under 21s against Arsenal on the official website. Hope you enjoyed it. COYS
