    Not in terms of mistakes but I fear for both of our full backs are neither are particularly quick. I rate Davies as a much better defender than Trippier who for me is poor in one-on-one situations and his positional sense isn't the best.

    I haven't seen it again so I can't say if it's a red card tackle or not but if you come for the ball and don't get it then it has to go down as a mistake. Sounds harsh for a sweeper keeper but that's the way it is. He didn't cover himself in glory for their 3rd goal either. As Billy said, basic goalkeeping says it's a big no no to push the ball back into play. I'd say most on here and most Spurs fans are happy with Lloris but he can't keep making those kind of mistakes in big games and gifting goals. We may only get one or two chances to score against United on Saturday.

    Oh yeah, fair enough I used to worry about his lack of pace but he never seems to get a real roasting from any winger so I stopped worrying about it really. Trippier is a strange one, in some big games I expect him to struggle a bit but he actually has a really good game. I guess just have to accept he's a very good full back but not top class and will have the odd bad game against a real tough opponent, but all in all he is consistently of a good standard.....

    The third goal came through at least two players and he saw it very late, so he had little time to adjust his body to get the power or angle to deflect or palm it away.

    Could have been a red for a high tackle, studs into the shin, leg breaker type challenge

    Well, he showed today just how good he is! Kept us in the game many times today, with excellent saves and brilliant sweeping!

    Hugo plays a high risk game so well. He almost never gets caught out sweeping. Not sure how he does it. For reaction saves he's up there close to the best too. Would he have saved United's winner? Quite possibly, or quite probably?

    Thought he played well tonight. Some good saves out there to keep a clean sheet.

    Was delighted to see him making firm, committed decisions again in this regard last night. So important!

    For many it will shut them up until the next slightly mis-placed pass...

    Love Hugo
    But my heart rate definitely quickens when he has the ball at his feet!

    Lets be honest, he's done a little worse than a few slight mis placing of passes this season. Everyone knows he's a top keeper, but by his standards he's had a pretty average season....

    Exactly. And I would back him to make the same decisions against Stoke and Emirates Marketing Project again. You are going to miss some/be unlucky. That's the way it goes. We are better for his bravery and decision making.

    I get that - and also feel a slight lump in my throat when he has the ball at his feet. There are a lot of moaning gits on here who don’t appear to be able to balance the elements of Hugo’s game that need improvement with the fact that he’s been loyal to us when he could quite possibly have gone to a richer club when we weren’t even getting in to the CL.

    I also wonder what other keeper we could afford who is as good as he is (not only as an athlete but as the captain).
