Lloris picks up clean sheet as side plays to disappointing draw

It was Lloris v Palace.

Spurs just played a disappointing game against Crystal Palace at the Lane and came away with a 0-0 draw. Soldado had a chance to put Spurs ahead in the first half, but Palace had the better chances and would have won 3-0 had it not been for Lloris’ saves.

Lloris was the man of the match as he collected his 4th clean sheet of the season. His defense needs to be called out for their so-call skills. I think the team needs a major revamp and Levy should bring in some passionate (hard to find, but worth a try) players in January who has winning in their DNA.

After the game, Lloris told Spurs TV:

“It was a tough game. Palace were strong but we didn’t find solutions. We didn’t find space and were slow with the ball. We have to keep going as there are a lot of games coming up.”

Spurs continue losing form at the Bridge

And the beat goes on ….

Spurs continue to under perform at the Bridge, losing 3-0 last evening to Chelsea, entering the record books for the longest winless run in the PL history at 28.

Hazard opened Chelsea’s account in the 19′. Three minutes later, Lloris commits a goalie sin by passing to a man in blue (Hazard) which led to Drogba scoring the 2nd. The 3rd was scored by Remy in the 73′. Yet, had it not been for the French goalie, Spurs would have probably lost 5/6-0.

Spurs put up a great fight, but their fight was not enough. They currently sit in 10th place with 20 points.

Lloris performance was a 3/5.

Hugo Lloris is THAT player that Spurs can’t afford to lose

90min.com complied a list of that one player every PL team can’t afford to lose and for Tottenham Hotspur, it was blatantly obvious which player they were going to choose. This is what Jaime Elliot had to say about Hugo Lloris:

​If Tottenham were to lose Lloris, it is hard to see them as a top-half team.

The Frenchman has been spectacular between the posts and without a doubt the world class player in the Spurs side.

If they can hang onto him then they need to build their side around him, because he will only continue to be frustrated at his teammates’ ineptitude in front of him.

I agree with Jaime.

With the likes of PSG, Roma and Real Madrid on the heels of the French goalie, it is only a matter of time before he leave Spurs … that is if the team don’t stop procrastinating. They have what it takes to be champions and yet they refuse to give their all. Week in, week out, they’re leaving a bad taste on the lips of fans and critics alike. They can’t seem to give a 100% performance when it is really needed. They’re lacking in the goals department and they’re not any better at the back.

Watch their games. The manager cannot be at fault for the way they play all the time. They might have the players but they don’t have the passion and a total revamp in the near future might make sense, but they need to work with what they have. They can do it.

Lloris back in goal for Spurs in the Europa

“We have a style with a lot of short passes and therefore any mistake can be a big opportunity for the opponents.”

- Hugo Lloris

Spurs won 1-0 over Partizan Belgrade last evening at the White Hart Lane thanks to Benjamin Stambouli scoring his first goal for Spurs (Soldado assisted). Hugo Lloris was back in goal after his suspension and although he was hardly tested throughout the match, he delivered once he was called upon. Lloris made several key saves to deny the opposition, but the one he made in the 85′ was sublime and the most talked about after the match!

See that spectacular save here:


Spurs are through to the round of 16 in the Europa.

Lloris talks France and Tottenham

Hugo Lloris addressed the press last evening in Rennes on the eve of France facing Albania in a friendly.

On not playing the last two games: “It was another way of living with the French national team.”

On Raphael Varane: “Varane is becoming more and more important. He has this ability to put the whole defensive sector at ease. There are very few players like Varane. He still has a lot of things to prove, but he has the potential to become a truly great player.”

On Steve Mandanda: “My relationship with Steve has been very good from the start. We are all teammates, even if there is competition for places.”

On playing for France: “All the games are important when you’re wearing the France shirt, no matter who the opposition is. It is a joy and makes me proud.”

On Tottenham Hotspur: “It is a delicate period with Tottenham, we need to ask ourselves questions and find the answers. We have a collective problem. We are growing during these moments, we are forcing to find a solution.”

On playing in Rennes: “It is important to leave the Paris region and be in contact with our fans.”

On Karim Benzema: “Karim has taken on another dimension. He is decisive for Real, he scores a lot. It is good for France. Karim has reached a level of confidence that allows him to do the right thing at the right time. He is a complete package. I think that Karim deserves to be on the podium for the Ballon D’Or. I want him to be.”
