I’ve seen a couple of comments on Vital Spurs recently where Lucas has been included in a list of players Spurs need to upgrade. Now I’m not sure on what that idea is based. Let’s face it; he’s only just arrived! I can’t believe the idea of him moving on is one shared by many Spurs supporters.
The fact is that he had played very little football for quite some time prior to joining us in the last TW. In the months that he has been at Spurs he has not yet had a consistent run in the starting eleven but, from what I have seen of him, he appears to be just the kind of player that suits the way Spurs play. He has good skills, good pace, can dribble, and is always looking to move the ball forward. In many respects he is much the same as our Sonny boy.
In fact, it seems to me that Dele, Son, Lamela, and Lucas, can all have a similar impact on the field for Spurs. They all like to move the ball forward, they are not afraid to take an opponent on, they are all quick, they are all capable of scoring goals, and they all have boundless energy. They, like every player, are not perfect and can be the source of their own undoing by making a wrong decision …. shoot, dribble or pass. But that’s not a problem, it’s just how football works.
When you throw Kane and Eriksen into the mix it looks a pretty potent attack when Spurs are moving forward.
I am very much looking forward to watching Lucas play this season and expect him to get more and more time on the park as the season progresses. He has impressed me so far and I believe he could become a real star for us over the next few seasons.
So, regarding Lucas Moura …. what does VS think?
