There have been swirling murmurs of discontent at White Hart Lane recently – over winger Aaron Lennon and his ropey form. Although Lennon is still only twenty, many have accused him of not progressing as he should, he still has that blistering pace but people are still waiting for his other talents to come to the fore. The fact that the much vaunted Adel Taarabt, spoken of with mouth frothing optimisms, is still kicking his heels in the reserves – puts even more pressure on Lennon.
The Sun reports that Spurs boss Juande Ramos was dismayed with Lennon’s craptastic crossing last week, and wants Lennon to do some intensive training sessions. Ramos said of his young charge:
“Of course Lennon practises crossing.
“But we will put on an extra session for him to improve his crossing.
“Everyone has to polish things and improve things to make them better. Lennon has to improve in that area.
“Sometimes you have a player whose performance is way below what it should be but you have to stick with them and make it better.
“Lennon has some very good attributes such as his pace which are very hard to find in players. He must use that to his advantage.”
Will Lennon be able to recapture his form or is this the sign of a more permanent stagnation of his abilities?
