    Well you know how Walcott and Lennon are quite similar? Tons of pace, good dribblers but crappy final ball? Why not try Lennon through the middle and just tell him to speed into the box and try and win pens or go round the keeper.

    Anything's got to be better than him out wide refusing to take on his man.

    We've already seen what happens when Lennon cuts in and is forced to shoot. He's almost more effective this way as it seems regardless of how much space there is...he never takes advantage of it.

    Martin Jol did play him there but with Rafa, Nico & Modric who can also play there it's never going to happen.

    If Bale could play Attacking Right and Lennon Attacking Left, I'd suggest switching them around more often than what they do to become more of the highly praised "Inverted Winger" everyone seems to bang on about lately.

    For me though, Just buy Ruiz or someone similar and we're sorted.

    thats a bit harsh, i thought at every opportunity against Man Utd he took on his man...

    I don't think he will suit that style of play, he and bale love getting out wide and attacking to the by-line its just every now and then Bale cuts inside whereas Lennon does less often...

    like Sraew says... try switching them more often would be better than using him as a striker.

    If he had the vision to match his speed he'd be unplayable! Unfortunately he is either as blind as a bat or just completely indecisive!

    Yer, I dont think i have ever lover a player so much yet be so frustrated by him at the same time. On his day, his moment he does things that take your breathe away and you just think "wow, how did you do that, get their so fast!!" Unfortunatly he doesnt score enough and is nowhere near as direct as he should be. He just panics in the moment, like a rabbit in the headlights. I love to see him drift inside, pick up the ball and run more directly towards the goal and he's actually got a good shot on him, hits them low and hard always finding the corners of the goal.

    The problem with playing Lennon as a striker - he can't finish his dinner...

    I think he will come good again this season, watch this space.

    Well of course , with Arry in charge he is deemed undroppable , thats like 40 odd games for him...constantly . Be pretty hard if he didnt perform in at least a couple of games!

    But in fairness if he just learns to improve his final ball, just even looking up, then he (can become) quality.

    Being able to run fast is not enough Im afraid, we need a new wide man who can deliver.

    Haha tell me about it ! lets just hope Friedricks doesnt learn from him, but Lennon is going to be our no1 Winger for as long as Arry is here so you cant do anything but stay optimistic.
