We love them both but who do you think is the better player in their prime? (Does not mean the other is bad).

Considering Moura has played less than 30 games for Tottenham compared to Lennon's 300+, that at 26 Moura has quite possibly yet to hit his prime certainly in a Spurs shirt and that they both fundementaly play in different positions for Spurs (Moura an AM, No 10 and even n.9. Lennon largely an out and out winger with a few appearances in the hole)I feel it s unfair to compare them at this moment.

Lucas hasn’t done enough to be compared to Lennon, at the moment he can barely last 60 mins before getting hooked.

You are probaly right. During the match i said that moura was the player we wanted lennon to be.

Got stick for it.

Just thought moura is the quick skillful player with more end product. Doesn't mean that lennon wasn't one of my favourite spurs players.

I’ve never understood the love in for Lennon. Average player, poor record and shot that couldn’t tear a tissue in half.

Moura was the better player the day he joined.

Odd poll. Ask in 3 years time

Lennon was great for us at the time but Poch sold him for a reason. He was meant to be in his prime

Lennon went to another level when he had competition like Routledge and Bentley but sometimes was predictable. Always went around the outside and not a great crosser at all. On his day he was fantastic but never consistently fantastic

The question wasn't about who had a better career for spurs.

Just, if you could pick one in their prime to be in the team which one?

These are different times, and who knows what would work. I wouldn’t want Lennon to replace Dele or Eriksen or Son or even Sissoko. I can’t help thinking, though, that Lennon in front of Trips would work. And I do believe that Harry Kane would be able to make more use of Lennon’s game than most of the attackers that Azza played with.

Anyway, those were good days in their own right, and it’s hard for me to let them go.

I dont think we have seen Moura at his prime yet mate. Give it 3 years. Lennon should have been at his prime (27) when he left Spurs and declined.

Its a tough ask because Moura could take his game up a few more notches

I always feel Lennon could be under appreciated at times for us.

The season we had VDV and Bale when Lennon was unavailable it affected balance (as we were then pushing VDV to the right).

As spurs fans maybe not.

Loved Lennon, witnessed the come up and the eventual downfall. It was pretty damning that during his last couple years he was only really lauded for his tracking back and defending. When he was 19-21 he was absolutely mint.
