Captain Hugo Lloris back on duty as Spurs draw 2-2 at home

Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City - Premier League

Before I start, I just want to rant a little. My laptop is being a two-minded little bitch. One minute she’s working perfectly fine like clockwork, the next, she’s behaving like a hunk of junk. I am in the process of laptop shopping, but it’s going to take a while as I am on a tight budget. That means I won’t be able to update my blogs as regularly as I would have liked.

Second rant: it’s hard being a Spurs fan. It just seems fitting to say ‘New season, same Spurs’. It doesn’t matter the player Spurs bring in, the team seem to be mediocre during promising times and I won’t stand for that this season. They have the best goalie in the world – It’s my opinion that Lloris is the best goalie in the world. Before Neuer was outfield; Lloris was outfield – but their defensive backline is…

Honestly, if Hugo ever ends up at Manchester United, I’ll be happy…

Lloris back between the sticks again!

Hugo Lloris came on as a substitute in the 55th minute last evening in the Audi Cup’s third- place play-off with AC Milan. His appearance might have given Spurs a big boost in hope of seeing him play the PL opener against Manchester United this Saturday, but I still think it’s a little bit risky as a broken wrist for a goalkeeper is not a little injury.

Spurs won the match 2-0.
