Oooo looks like you beat @TheRam (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1602) by about 7 seconds!

Technically it's been on the tweet of the day thread for about 10 mins like.

I am delighted for him and wish him a great 2018.  Pity he plays for us though. He is one of the lesser players I hope Sam bins, sooner rather than later. I am sure he can make a decent living playing somewhere else, maybe in the Championship.

What blerts are giving him a hard time about not speaking out/doing more?

Honest to god, the older I get the more I fucking hate the general population.

He's a good lad Lennon, made up he's been able to find the help he's needed.

Probably the same ones who had a go at Allardyce for not donating enough to the homeless charity, or the ones who kicked off at Rooney for donating £750,000 to Alder Hey then turning up with(out) a cold to visit the kids.

People are knobs.

A nice fella and I guess humbled a bit by his experience. At least he's saying something rather than pretending it never happened. Just wish he could cross a ball with the same consistency as his effort for the team. Wish him well for the new year.

Football-wise he's not very good. In his whole career of 350 games he scores roughly 1/10 games and makes an assist 1/7 games with a cross completion success of about 20%. Hasn't scored for us in the league for two seasons (about 25 games).

I'm not saying he's as good but those are very similar stats to Pienaar.

Any winger in front of Jonjo would benefit him. It is just that Lennon (bless him) is a pretty awful player in terms of PL quality.  Sentiment and good will aside, Lennon in my opinion is in the group of Everton squad players who are just not good enough and should be moved on this year.

For what we spent on him. We got a pretty decent deal. I agree better players than him, but he is very hard working and gives loads of protection to his full back.   At least when you see his name on the team sheet,  you know he won't go missing for 89 mins. So glad he's back from his Mental Health problems.

Fuckinell!

"Pretty awful?" He is playing just outside of the world's elite - I'd say he's pretty fucking good, despite our aspirations to compete higher.

"Football-wise he's not very good. Random stat, random stat random stat." Yeah he works his bollocks off, shows for the ball, competes for it, runs at players and gives the opposition something to worry about with his pace but he hasn't saved a single penalty his whole career so fuck him in the ear for a beer.


Is it any wonder that some players find their position difficult to get their heads around when they are judged every single day by people who love them one moment for their talent and then hate them the next moment for not being better?

One day I hope to turn up at your workplace and announce loudly how shit you are at your job. Give the man a break - he's thanking us ffs!

When does that ever happen with Arron Lennon?

I doubt none of us are happy to be the best of the rest, but the reality is that is roughly where we are at present and that's not going to change overnight, we would all love premier players like Man City have but we don't have that pull at the moment to get them, we have took some massive backwards steps this year and are just starting to get things slowly back on track, lets be realistic.

I wonder what his defensive/workrate stats are like and his none assist passing stats.

oxlade chamberlain doesnt score many but id have him in a heart beat. Without goals and assists he still does more for the team in a game than most of those he's competing for his position with, and if he added those two stats to his game he'd probably be one of our better players.

Bullshit x3

1) I want us to compete at the top as much as anyone - I was raised on the team of the 80's.
2) Nowt to do with plucky Everton - the defence of Aaron Lennon (please take note of the spelling) was because the lad's thanks to the fans and bravery through adversity was not the time for cheap cunts to kick him in the nuts.
3) No-one would be happy with Robson-Kanu and Brunt for running around. There is a difference between appreciating a limited player working hard and actually wanting limited players who work hard or thinking they would be good for us - in fact I'm not even sure what you're implying - that I don't know the difference between Robson-Kanu and Lionel Messi because I appreciate people who try hard?

Not at all happy to be the best of the rest but sometimes you get what you deserve and maybe fans who rip into their own players at every opportunity only deserve mid table mediocrity. Just fuck off.

Looking at Lennon the player, I genuinely think he has been a vital part of our resurgence post-Koeman.

He was one of the first players brought in by Unsworth to make sure that we had a proper attacking presence and some pace. He also provides good defensive cover.

All in all, he is a great player to have in the squad and as an aside, I am so happy for him that he has been able to get his life back on track.

I like Lennon, but if I ask myself where in the league I think he probably belongs at this stage of his career I would say about where we are. 9th/10th, maybe lower.

Same for a lot of our players tbh. Probably our problem really. Not enough top 6/7 quality, never mind top 4. Breaking the top 6 in his era would feel like breaking the top 4 in the early 00’s.

I am honest about the facts.

The facts are:

Lennon took time out to thank the fans for their support and to reach out to let other people know that they need not suffer alone and that there is hope. Fact.

Anyone who took this as a cue to give him shit for his footballing ability deserves their teeth to turn to turds in their mouths. Fact.

I would choose Vlasic over Lennon any day of the week, but this was just not the time to bring this up. The man was baring a very private side of his life in order to bring hope and awareness to others. He's a person as well as a footballer.

What's wrong with being human?

Funny peoples perception of players as I really dont see it. Dont get me wrong I think hes okay, but a bottom half/ top of the championship player, nothing more. I often think he has to turn out and run to the corner as he isnt that great with close control, the only time he beats anyone is with his pace down the line, but then its pretty pointless as his delivery is terrible.

Did you not see his partnership with Kenny in probably our ONLY decent run of form this season? Won 2/3 penalties from just 1,2s with kenny, works his balls off, tracks back.

Actually the fact that Burnley want him is interesting, considering their all out physical style of play. Everyone plays full out for 90 minutes. I can't imagine  Lennon having that stamina. But like I said, his world has taken off again following his illness. Just glad he is not staying with us. Probably two more will be moved on before this window is out. Maybe we can promote the young left back we left out of the squad. 
Title: Re: Lennon
Post by: Lxxx on January 20, 2018, 12:05:52 AM
Makes sense. 6 months left on his contract so if we get a couple of million it's a good deal for all parties. We're also bringing the average age of the squad down bit by bit by moving on two 30 years olds and replacing them with 28 and 26.

I'm not saying he is brilliant but he offers the side balance. Stats won't show this.
Pienaar didnt have great assists and goals stats either. I'm guessing you thought he was shite too

To those who think Aaron's departure is our loss, just think, if we get Dyche after Sam goes maybe this year or next, he might bring Aaron back with him. Or the new Burnley manager might not fancy him and move him on again. Best for Aaron that Dyche stays there for another 3 years which should see the then 33 year old out of the top flight but with another 3 years of top earnings. Everyone gains.

I like Aaron Lennon, obviously he's not the kind of player who was going to move us forward but he's played his part for Everton, scored a few goals and had a very good work rate. Maybe he's not the best player creatively but he has helped a lot to protect his full backs.

Good luck to him, I think he could be quite a key player for Burnley.

To those who think Aaron's departure is our loss, just think, if we get Dyche after Sam goes maybe this year or next, he might bring Aaron back with him. Or the new Burnley manager might not fancy him and move him on again. Best for Aaron that Dyche stays there for another 3 years which should see the then 33 year old out of the top flight but with another 3 years of top earnings. Everyone gains.

I'll judge that in October

Why do so many people hate FACTS?

Look at his stats, he’s genuinely a poor player at this level

Good riddance

Funny how you're not too keen on facts when they spell out how shite we are going forward under Allardyce. But I'll not mention that.

Good move all round.

He was at his best for us when the rest of the team was shapeless or uninterested in defending.

Obviously thereís a more inherent defensiveness about us now so we need players who produce more in the final third.

I take your point but
They do in this case

Just offers very little going forward, working hard is his best attribute which tells you more than anything about his lack of ability

But the stats saying we have had fuck all shots on target in god knows how long are irrelevant?  :wag:

Nice to see Lennon stepping up and challenging for Europe spots again

I like Lennon, good luck to him. Never quite got settled here, his off field issues didn't help with that either but hopefully he's over all that can go and enjoy the rest of his career.

Be a bit bonkers if he goes and finishes above us in the league now. :)

The players have had months if not years at the club to prove themselves

The manager has had less than 2 months and already there is so much nasty hatred based on ill informed opinion from the London media.


I never thought I'd agree with you, but very a good post.

That goal he scored where someone put him through (Mirallas? Lukaku?) and he raced through and finished, fantastic goal. Wonder if a Pep had got hold of him at 18 instead of the redknapps of the world would he have done that more often in his career?

Superb first touch as well, very rarely does he miscontrol he ball regardless of how itís fired into him. That pen he won a few months ago at goodison, canít remember who it was against where his first touch took the ball almost at a right angle right under the defender and won us a pen, superb stuff and when I saw the ball dropping I genuinely thought - heís going to bring this under control here.

Lots of crosses but relatively few assists I would think.

Was a good signing for us and did his job well imo.

;D

Nah, I'm sad to see him go too - he got on board here and worked his socks off when asked.  A solid footballer.

All the best Aaron, hope you enjoyed your time here - despite Koeman etc.  Now go and help Burnley get a crack at the Europa, and have a better one than you did with us this year!   :thumbs:

Good lad, put in plenty of effort which will always be appreciated, won't be a miss from a playing perspective though. Best of luck to him up at Burnley.

Didn't really know how to put it but yeah, this.

Good pro and some decent attributes but nowhere near productive enough for a forward player, I'd rather have Walcott every day.

All the melts having snide little digs at him should take note of this.
This is how a well-adjusted, non-bellend says goodbye to a player who isn't quite good enough for us.

Agree with @brap2 (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=666) , it would be interesting to see how he would have turned out under better managers because he does have all of the technical tools. Just hasn't got that last, important touch.

Remember when he came into that fat, lazy Martinez team? It reminded me of playing pub footy, when each team would have that one spritely little fucker who had pace, running everywhere and making the rest of the fat knackers look bad.

Good luck to him.

Yeah, he was a completely different level wasn't it.

Underlined just how unfit, unmotivated, and poorly drilled that side was compared to Spurs.

In a list of "get rids" thought he'd be well down it, but we'll probably be stuck with a few unwanted on high wages,it's them that will hinder us making the squad better, more than pinpointing the right players to bring in.

Wish him all the best and think that this is a good move for him.

He was always brought in to the side when we needed to shore up and become more solid, which highlighted his role and his importance as a team player.

His workrate and tracking back let Coleman attack more and looked after JJK when he came in to the team this season. But the stats won't show this will they?

He'll do well at Burnley and I look forward to seeing him smiling in the welcome photos.

Mad how one of those people has been crying over people having digs about allardyce for the last few weeks as well.

Yet Aaron Lennon is fair game.

Edit: There's two of them.
