Video Analysis: Further evidence that Spurs can’t afford to let Lloris leave

By Harry Hotspur -

Hugo Lloris spared Tottenham’s blushes yesterday, despite Watford spending most of the game on the back foot.

The first attempt ended up being a benign effort, but the real concern was seeing our backline getting turned inside out by some pretty basic offensive work from the hosts.

The second effort saw Emerson wrong-footed and again a damp squib of a shot from Watford.

The third chance was by far the most explosive, which featured Royal losing possession and Hugo pulling off a world-class stop at full stretch.

The fourth opportunity was the result of an Eric Dier masterclass.

In summary, the Frenchman didn’t have much to do, but most of his efforts were spent mopping up self-inflicted nonsense and the one stand-out attempt on the Spurs goal.

Apparently, Conte isn’t keen on Gollini, and nor am I.

I couldn’t agree more H. Hugo has been playing at a high level since his serious injury a couple of years ago and at this point is irreplaceable and wholly deserving of a contract extension.

It was also an inexplicable decision to let Gazzaniga walk on a free and then sign ‘Golliwop’, who has been seriously underwhelming, whilst the Argentine has been top-drawer for Fulham by all accounts.

Yet another financial blunder by Levy, considering Gazzaniga’s market value is a reported 3 million and yet we received nothing for him, whilst undoubtedly having to pay a loan fee for ‘Golly!’

Then again what’s another few million quid between friends, when you can just tack it on to your massively inflated asking price for the club. The highest paid chairman in the EPL, but not accountable for losses incurred apparently!

On which subject, ‘Patagonia Joe’ must be a very benevolent and forgiving Godfather to repeatedly excuse Levy’s incompetence. The old phrase ‘as thick as thieves’ alternatively springs to mind!

Gazza’s departure was puzzling not least because he never really let us down when called upon.Maybe he fell out with the manager in some way.You right though,he’s certainly a massive upgrade on the plonker we have now,although hopefully not for long.Can we cut short his loan period?

Keep Hugo for sure, the only question mark with him is whether to give the captaincy to an outfield player which may upset the applecart.

Possibly but he’s still one of the best in the world, his distribution isn’t good but over a season he gains us points. Remember how sh*te our defence have been in recent times. It always amuses me when fans think we’d be so much better off without him in goal. Don’t think think we’ve got more pressing issues in the team that need addressing first?

Hugo has been loyal to us ever since Bale left.. It would be wrong to strip the man of his captaincy.
