When Lucas was available on cheap. we were showing unlimited trust on academy lad and English international Lingaard.

I remember clearly people stating 'he's a psg reject, why would we want him? '

Been brilliant for spurs. Much better than that mug Lingard.

Lucas has had a few good 20 minute spells in his whole Spurs career. If he was so good why didn't he make a difference in the first half, or the first leg. Origi scored twice for Liverpool the other night yet he is still a poor player and will never be first choice for Liverpool.

Lucas is a limited player, push and run, shoot with his left foot after cutting in from the right. A poor mans Arjen Robben. PSG were happy to sell for a reason.

Personally although he might not grab the headlines, Jessie Lingard is a more useful player over 90 minutes and throughout a whole season.

That mug lingard? Redwhiskey give your head
a wobble pal.

Shappy I have to disagree about lingard what does he offer other than run around a lot. He doesn’t create any chances he doesn’t score he doesn’t tackle I fail to see the benefit of having him on the pitch. Could you please enlighten me.

09 May 2019 18:50:48
Spot on again Shappy we've been judging everything on a game by game basis for some time now.

If you rewind the clock a few weeks Rashford was the best young striker in the world when he scored his penalty against PSG now he's a washed up bum at only 21 years old.

Solskjear "got the Club" only a few short months ago now he's an inexperienced chump that got sacked from Cardiff.

Oh and Lucas Moura is now the best thing since sliced bread apparently until he has a bad game and then he'll be rubbish again no doubt. I've not read one single post saying we shouldn't have let him go to Spurs before last night and how long has been at there for now? Full credit to the bloke amazing performance last night but let's see him do it every week before we start pining for what could have been.

09 May 2019 18:52:51
Lucas hasn’t been brilliant for Spurs. A few top class performances, but missing more often than not.

Lingard is a worse player, and would be nowhere near our first team if he wasn’t an academy graduate he’d be nowhere near the first team.

09 May 2019 18:57:53
And how right we were to trust Lingard, with the important goals he’s scored for us.

Shappy has it absolutely right about Moura (and Lingard) .

Some posts slagging our own players are going beyond embarrassing now.

09 May 2019 19:07:44
I can guarantee Lucas in the set up we started under Ole, played on the right would have done much more than Lingard. Tired of the love affairs with academy graduates. Call a spade a spade, simple as. Lingard is dross. And we wonder why we're sinking into mid table when we're relying on players who's best attribute is his bloody dancing!

09 May 2019 19:14:20
That poor man's Robben is miles batter than our headless chicken. since his arrival he took his time in sattling. Like most you guys give time of a season for a new player from different league. ( When we buy them) . And now after Kane's injury he is getting more chances. And he is taking it.
You guys should remember that he was SAF target, we tried hard for him . but PSG pull him away.

Don't drag other players here. it's simple comparison of Lingaard vs Lucas. And how academy lads+ English is favoured to much.

09 May 2019 19:26:07
Moura is a decent player. He scores more than lingard and creates more than lingard and gets you off your seat more than lingard.
All that said jessie does have some very good attributes and is worthy of a place in our squad imo. Often turned up in big games.
Imo moura is the better player of the 2 maybe because i prefer his style of play more and there is more excitement with him.
Great buy at today's prices and we should have bought him. Not based on last night but based on the fact he would have added plenty to our attack.

What has being a Sir Alex target got to do with it? Sanchez was a Sir Alex target before he went to Barcelona. Zaha was a Sir Alex target before he stunk out the place upon signing. Sir Alex is arguably our greatest ever manager, yet he still got some transfer wrong.

As for Lingard I understand why he is underrated by many people, his antics make him hard to like to most people who aren't 17 years old. His talents lie in the work he does off the ball, as did Carrick's. All be it in a very different part of the pitch. Lingard is a hard working runner who puts a shift in defensively, makes intelligent runs to open up space for his team mates, while also having enough talent to score some vital goals.

If you want to bring Sir Alex in to it, he always played Park Ji Sung in the big games, not because he was one of our best players but because of his work rate and industry, as well as a perchant for scoring key goals in big games.

I'm also a little surprised by the number of fans who slag our players off every week for a lack of effort, yet seem perfectly happy to slag Lingard off for the actual hard work he does. Seriously you can't win with some of you moaners.

Your the sort of people who complain about it always raining, then the moment we get a sunny spell your complaining about it being too hot and that you want it to rain to stop your grass dying out.

Pick a side and stick to it.

Lucas Moura usually only starts when Kane isn't fit but still has 15 goals for a second choice player. I'd love someone at United who wasnt a first choice who could do that.

09 May 2019 19:59:29
In my opinion Lingard needs to play just behind Rashford where he can press from the front, link the play and cause teams problems with his movement. If he was given a run of games in that position I think he'd be much more consistent and effective. I don't think he's particularly suited to playing from the right that's why I believe a right sided forward is essential in the summer.

Like I've said previously someone like Sancho right, Martial left with Lingard in behind Rashford would be a young, exciting and dynamic quartet. I'd sell Pogba and look to sign a combative, aggressive, mobile defensive midfielder as well as prioritising a CB to partner Lindelof.

Many won't agree but I think our team could be transformed just by signing a really good CB, CM, RW and reverting to a 4-2-3-1.

I'm not talking about winning the league but certainly being good enough to compete with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs whilst playing a more progressive and dynamic brand of football.

The OP has a point but picked completely the wrong target. In January 2018 Spurs signed lucas moura who is traditinally a right winger. We signed Alexis Sanchez to play on the left wing when we had plenty of options to play left wing.

Sanchez was signed because mourinho didn't show enough trust or faith in rashford or martial and woodward wanted a Good PR moment getting one over city.

Signing lucas instead of him in hindsight would have been good business considering how much of a cataclysmic flop alexis has been.

09 May 2019 20:10:33
Shappy 😂😂😂

DSG spot on there. Not sure why Lingard is singled out when we signed Sanchez.

Moura has done more for us than Sanchez has!

09 May 2019 20:12:38
I remember people saying Lucas Moura wasn’t good enough, was past it, a hat trick with his wrong foot in a CL semi final, it’s poch who has brought him on.

09 May 2019 20:35:16
Lingard vs Moura war. 😂😂😂
I wouldn't want any of them. Lingard is 26 years old people think he's young and has potential. Moura is a better player but i still wouldn't take him.

09 May 2019 21:20:54
We got linked with moura at the same time as Sanchez, I would of took moura at the time over Sanchez.
That said I thought he would of done better than he has at spurs, but its difficult with kane in the team.

09 May 2019 21:53:04
Lingard is like Carrick 🤔

Carrick did his best work on the ball, dictating the tempo of games, and linking midfield and defence. Lingard does his best work off the ball making runs. The problem is that sometimes he gets the ball after making a run, and when he gets it he doesn’t deliver 9 times out of 10.

10 May 2019 08:38:17
Danny, it was Carrick's off the ball movement and his reading of the game that allowed him to control the tempo of the game, making himself an easy passing option and always know where he could off-load the ball before he got it. People used to slate him as he didn't run around like a headless chicken putting in last ditch tackles and throwing himself about. Everything he did looked easy, but that was because of his off the ball movement. But because it looked easy everyone thought he wasn't that good. That is why he was underrated for so long.

It's hard to understand unless you watch a match in the flesh. Off the ball movement is very hard to accurately pick up on TV as the cameras follow the ball.
