When he has his head right, he can be very effective. However when he is off his game, he really fades from the game and in Poch's system the wingers need to be very influential in the final third (ironic given how ineffective they have been, especially since the Chelsea win).

Seriously think that we have the wrong person out on loan. Say what you will about Lennon but he is much more likely to contribute to team pressing required than Andros. Much better team player.

Not watching but seems to be playing decent according to BBC. Won a pen (even though not in box) and put a good chance for Mcarthy

It doesn't matter how good he looks at Everton...it wasn't happening in a Tottenham one anymore
I've wondered for awhile now whether he just simply needed a change in scenery, and this move may just have provided that. Still not sure whether it'd be best for us to bring him back or not, but I'm even more convinced now he just simply needed a mixup, be it temporarily or permanently.

Very puzzling how he can do so well for Everton but been poor for us.

If it was a case of going stale with us then I would say he has a mentality issue as top players continue to pull it out of the bag and don't need to switch clubs to give them a kick up the jacksie.

This is especially sad as looking at our right side at present I'd take an in-form Lennon over Chadli, Lamela or Townsend (the latter should be on the left!!).

I know it was only motd highlights but he looked like their biggest threat.
And looked to be enjoying his football.
Can't see him playing for us again unfortunately.

Another great loan. Lennon has gone stale for us. He is a northern lad and maybe he is enjoying life more up north.
Won't be sad if this loan becomes a permanent.

SSN just reported Lennon went voluntarily to talk with Police after an incident involving an 18yr old woman in a nightclub early April.
