Lucas Moura won a few admirers last night.
You can only play the team in front of you so ‘they were only a League One mob’ is at best unkind.
That said Spurs fans have more form than Shergar when it comes to hysterically embracing new players. Donna Cullen recently received an email from one supporter asking what he was supposed to do with his ‘Marcus Edwards – Tottenham Legend’ tattoo.
Brazil international Moura, speaking after starting and scoring in the dramatic FA Cup draw at Rochdale has further boosted his appeal with the following post match quote:
“I believe that because we have a lot of quality, a great structure – I am really impressed – and I think we can dream with the Champions League.”
Best thing since sliced bread? We’ll obviously need to see him against more typical opposition and Crystal Palace away is perhaps an ideal opportunity to dip his toe in the Premier League water.
