Is there a link to Wenger's comments? Did he really say that or is this typical media word-twisiting?

Certainly our best keeper since Jennings. Big Pat was the best at stopping one-on-ones, and Hugo is a huge sweeper behind the defence.

Wenger's been rumoured to be after a top GK for several years - and Lloris being French and a top GK means that all the press will always put Lloris as one of Wenger's top target (rationale being said to be that Lloris is going to a CL club) , along with the likes of Petr Cech et al, so it would bn't surprise if the Malaysian paper asked Lloris the question - and we've got Lloris fantastic reply

“Arsene can say what he wants, but this is the club I will stay with. I love the spirit, the philosophy and the people,” said Lloris.

“That’s very important to me. Spurs play the football I love – exciting and entertaining.”
Yeah, don't believe you hugo...haha, you don't fool me buddy, you see...some very wise posters on here said you'd be off as soon as poch came in...but you stayed, thinking that would fool everyone but they saw through that eeeeeeasily and knew it was inevitable and you'd be off in January as soon as you sussed how rubbish poch was...aaaaaaand you stayed...haha, nice try hugo...nice try, yeah, and now you say all this obvious rubbish (expected) still thinking it will fool the folks on here who were right allllll along; they know you know poch is shit, hugy baby, so it doesn't matter how long you stay at this club, we know you'll always be leaving!

Ha...think you can fool us!

If barca or Madrid come calling who knows, I've learnt not to read too much into what players say about us .

But for now glad he's happy here, shame he still doesn't have a great a winners medal with us.
Shame bale and modric left without ever getting one

Our only truely world class player. I will be delighted if we can keep him for another few seasons but I dont think any of us would be surprised to see him leave for Real,etc. in a season or two and I dont think any of us would begrudge him that.

By the way it's reported it sounds like it was an old comment from Wenger brought up by whoever conducted the interview/journo at press conference.

Haha

If certain posters predictions would have been correct then Hugo and Jan would have left. We would be scrapping it out in midtable, unable to come back from losing positions and the players not understanding a word Poch has to say because he can't communicate in cockney English.

And that we would be in a relegation scrap about now.

Did you read the article? There's a picture of the journo with Hugo...
I read a different article earlier, just seen the photo...yeah...

The quotes just looked like some kind of queasy fan fiction wet dream of an interview. In my defence, the actual article reads like that too.

Hugo played shyly with is phone, stealing nervous glances at me. I thought, is this the man who so commands his box? I stepped closer to him, 'Wenger' I whispered in his ear. He grabbed my wrist, 'No,' I stopped, 'please do not say his name, I cannot bear its cruel cadence.' I nodded to him and he released me from his strong grip. Instantly my skin missed his strong fingers...
