Lamela, Lamela, paying £30m for a 21 year old work in progress always did require vision, he can’t yet speak English, has to get used to the physicality and speed of the premiership and he is away from home in a very foreign country, Eric Lamela was always going to take a full season to bed in and no matter how many games he plays this season we will not see the very best of Lamela until next season.
Not appreciating that is the height of naivety but to get the best out of Lamela he has to play, he won’t learn the language or get used to the speed and physicality of the premiership being loaned out to an Italian team!
We have seen Lamela play for Roma, had the vision and paid £30m for a talent who could fail but more likely could be worth twice that amount, Lamela could quite easily be worth morethan Bale but we have to either back our original judgement or sell him, a loan deal would solve nothing.
For Lamela to be a success we have to make him a fixture in the side, he is far better than Chadli or Townsend who have been poor and although Lennon is quick he has very little end result, Lamela has an eye for a pass, is very accurate and would make an inspired choice either behind Saldado, play him in a 4231 formation or 4411 but just play him, it needs Tim Sherwood to put his arm around him, give Lamela his confidence back and be the father figure.
Please though, do not send Lamela out on loan, it will achieve nothing, to be a success at Spurs he has to be playing in the premiership, learning English and making friends, I think he could be one hell of a player if we handle him correctly and he will be a real test for Tim Sherwood!
It should be remembered that we nearly lost Bale, nearly went out on loan and was played out of his preferred position for most of his time with Spurs, it was only late in his Spurs career that his true worth became evident and of course Harry turned down Luis Suarez, we must be very sure we have given Lamela every chance before we let him go – just play him.
It is simple, play Lamela or sell him, no other choice but listen all you Spurs fans out there, what do you think, come on have your say by COMMENTING below and if you found this article interesting please LIKE the ‘Its just life!’ page on FACEBOOK.
