Video Evidence: Is Tipped Hugo Lloris Replacement Actually Good Enough?
By Harry Hotspur -

Highlight reels are somewhat like the trailer for a film – the general idea is that these are the best bits – and by removing the duller scenes the producers are then able to coax patrons into watching the entire film.

Mike Maignan is one name suggested as our captain’s eventual successor. My issue with this video is that I’m seeing a lot – and I mean a lot – of reactive saves which is good, but at the same time there’s the creation of a lot -and I mean a lot – of second balls.

I’m sure before Hugo moves on we’ll see plenty more auditions.

He looks a very good replacement Keeper. My only concern….If there is a clear out of current players with “Pass there Sell by Dates: Wrong ATTITUDES, Championship Players etc.” (English Players -Dier, Winks, Dele, Bale etc) then we may have a struggle recruiting homegrown players in those areas of the squad impacted by these players leaving and thus meeting the required number of Engish Players in the squad.

So methinks Baldy will more than likely look for a local homegrown Boy like Pope, Henderson or Johnstone.🤣

The number of reaction saves could also come down to a poor leaky defence which won’t be the same with us…. Oh hang on!

what dont you like about him??? that he actually comes of his line?? that he can pass a ball to one of his own players???that he comes out and claims crosses and isnt bothered about getting clattered?? or that he just 100% a better keeper than hugo

He looks competent enough, but I didn’t see much there to convince me is a better shot stopper then Hugo. Lots of saved shots bouncing back into play instead of being caught and of course the editting doesn’t show any where the second ball falls to an attacker.
He look more comfortable coming out for crosses than Hugo, but then most goalies do.
His footwork looked good when sweeping. And he looked confident diving at the feet of opponents.
I would like some examples of distribution by long kicks and throws to judge how well he can transition from defence to attack.
Apparently Bill Nicholson liked to watch a player for 13 whole matches before deciding if he was good enough for Spurs. An 8 minute video of highlights is probably insufficient! The jury is out for me.
