Well Hugo’s captain. & a WC winning captain too

It’ll have to be based on more than form or skill only

Being captain is neither here or there. He has to be good enough to be 1st choice.
He still edged out Gazza imo but we could sign a more consistent keeper

For us to play a high line, Hugo has to play - simples.

The keeper is the very very very least of our worries. The only way the keeper becomes a problem is if it impacts the defence and their confidence in him... clearly that isnt the case.

Look I’m not a football scout and I don’t watch any non premier league games so I won’t be able to come up with 10/15 names but to think we couldn’t attract a keeper to perform better than Lloris has for the last few years is not correct imo.
We have consistently been the 3/4 best team in the league for the last few years, is Lloris the 3/4 best keeper in the league?

I don't even understand why we're having this argument. Hugo is one of our longest serving players, he's our captain, and quite frankly he's been one of the best keepers in the world over a very long period of time. Let's see how he does against the best keepers in the Premier League;



I don't think based on Gazzanigas 10 games for us that he'd challenge Hugo in any of these categories apart from maybe distribution accuracy. Have a look at David "The best keeper in the world" De Geas distribution stat by the way.
Can't wait for Ederson to be properly tested as a GK. Normally he is just distributing play in a team winning 5-0. He's like Victor Valdes.

Agreed but how do we afford even a second rate keeper now Chelsea, Liverpool and city have spunked more money on a keeper than we have net spend in 10 years.

I think a top quality right back would improve our defence.

Let’s be honest Pochettino is not going to buy a replacement for Lloris anyway.
To improve our first 11 in any position is going to be very expensive and probably the reason we haven’t in the last few seasons

Take a bow Captain

To all the Degea, Ederson, Alison fanboys
It must be frustrating that waiting and i dare say even hoping for Lloris to make mistakes so you can prove your point. Game after game after game...

Well, you will continue to wait, because Hugo happens to be the best goalkeeper on the world and hes also one of the most consistent one.

Till then, i'll keep bring this thread up every week to remind you of your foolies.

It's almost as if Hugo realises his place is under threat and has upped his game.... :)

Cute.

Let’s himself down? Maybe off the pitch he did, but not on it.

It is actually ridiculous how consistent he has been over the years. Yes he has made mistakes, every keeper does, but they have been pretty rare.

Baffles me the criticism he gets. To hear you think he ‘lets himself down’ actually made me lol.

The Leicester fans gave Lloris a loud "You're s#*t ahhhh" today. Made me laugh out loud as the current World Cup winning Goalkeeper captain had saved a penalty and made a string of good saves in the game. MoM today IMO - he has been through a slight dip in form of late but a great performance today.

His game has been of a very high level all season. He's made a few errors and we take his brilliance for granted. Statistically speaking this has been by far his best season for us, and we are facing a lot more shots than in previous seasons, probably because we have been forced to rotate the defense a lot.

He will make mistakes, as would any keeper being asked to play his role.

Keepers we could get to challenge him?
Navas? He is a decent keeper but would be fit to clean lloris' boots particularly has he is not suited to the pl style.

Pat Jennings says Lloris is the best keeper he has seen at spurs and probably the best in the league. I think his opinion outweighs anyone here, so maybe some of our fans aren't quite as smart as they would like to think.

And he’s absolutely right, all keepers make mistakes it’s a given - all the so called trendy keepers do.

Cannot honestly believe Loris has actually been questioned, one of the very best in the world!
