How long has it been now? Two months or there about? I don’t know feels like an eternity to me to be honest.
Aaron Lennon you remember him? The wing wizard of White Hart Lane? Yes that’s the fellow. Put you on your backside on more than one occasion.
There’s many a Premiership player thought that I’ll bet ya. And they’ll have gone home with their tail between their legs too.
Though for one reason or another it feels like an age since we’ve seen him stretch those little legs of his. Taunting the full back that has been given the unfortunate task of “trying” to mark him.
An awful lot of pundits have given Aaron a hard time over the years. Slating his final ball, and, or his decision making. And to be fair at first they were justified comments. Though recently those very in-abilities he once possessed have, in my opinion improved greatly. Though not to the extent of a Manchester United or Chelsea showing an interest.
After-all is that the mark of a great player? Yes it grates. And yes we are a big club ourselves. But let’s take Modric for example or Bale for that matter. When a regular Champions League club sees a quality player they go all out to sign him. And the simple fact is no-one has really come in for Aaron. So should we deem from that it might be time to try another trick?
Or are they nieve? Take a look at the Aaron vs Messi video below. Now you spot the difference in their style of play. No. I couldn’t either. They both play the game the same way. Yet it’s Messi’s goals that have earned him rave reviews. So if Aaron could only finish of those rough edges surely he could become that Diamond we all hoped for.
And that is my question to you guys and galls. Would we be better to look for an improvement on Aaron? Or should we stick with him hoping he will again move up a level?
