    I'm left handed, right footed it's called cross lateral or so I've been told.

    He's right footed. Have you not noticed how badly he kicks with his left? He's just trying to generate some action for himself.

    New article on Lloris and his captaincy:


    Hugo Lloris: Why Tottenham’s inspirational and understated captain remains crucial to ending trophy drought

    In the days after Tottenham’s remarkable Champions League semi-final win over Ajax, Harry Kane emerged as the inspiration behind their comeback.

    According to Kieran Trippier, Kane, who was injured on the night, stormed into the away dressing room at half-time “going mental” and helped to rouse his team-mates to a famous victory.

    But Mauricio Pochettino later offered a different version of events, insisting it was another player who had the final word as the team headed back out, trailing 3-0 on aggregate.

    Michel Vorm, who was there in Amsterdam, remembers it the same way as his then manager.

    “We were done. This was the general feeling,” said Vorm. “And then Hugo Lloris stands up. I don’t remember his exact words but he lets you think, ‘Don’t give up’. He gives you hope.”

    Pochettino’s desire to recognise Lloris’s role in the miracle of Amsterdam was connected to a feeling, which still persists at Spurs, that the Frenchman does not always get the credit he deserves, as a player and captain.

    Lloris has not been immune to high-profile errors during his time at Spurs and he was at fault for both goals in last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat against Wolves. But he has been one of the most consistent keepers in the Premier League during his decade in England.

    His new two-year contract will take him to 12 years at the club and there is little new to learn about Lloris the goalkeeper. But Lloris the leader remains more of a mystery, despite him captaining France to the 2018 World Cup, and Kane is still occasionally assumed to wear the armband for club as well as country.

    Almost everyone who has played or worked with Lloris agrees he is a great captain, albeit without conforming to stereotypes.

    “When people think of a captain, they think who wears the armband, shouts and puts people in their place. But with Hugo, it’s a different kind of captain,” said former team-mate Toby Alderweireld.

    Intelligent, thoughtful and serious to the point of severe, Lloris chooses his words carefully. He can be ferocious and is not afraid to call out his team-mates, best demonstrated after Spurs’ 3-0 defeat by Dinamo Zagreb last season, when he labelled their performance “a disgrace”, or in his heated clash with Heung-min Son during a game against Everton in July 2020.

    He can also be encouraging, self-critical and even funny, but he is rarely emotional.

    “He’s always clear, and he always thinks before he speaks. What he says makes sense,” said Vorm, Lloris’s long-time understudy and briefly his coach. “Sometimes he was more aggressive, sometimes more calm. But he finds the balance always.”

    Alderweireld added: “It’s about the big moments. For example, the [Manchester] City game in the Champions League, [against Sergio] Aguero’s penalty. That’s something a real captain does — help the team when it’s in need.

    “People underestimate it but a captain is always there for the club. You can shout as much as you want, throw your arms around like you care, but if you don’t perform it’s not the same. He always performs, he’s always there for the club, for 10 years.”

    If Spurs are to end their long wait for a trophy, they will need characters such as Lloris — and surely there is no one at the club who deserves silverware more than the 35-year-old.

    “He’s the captain of France who won the f*****g World Cup,” said Vorm. “But his ultimate dream is winning something with Tottenham. That also gives him an extra energy towards the group, towards himself to push more.”

    Not a fan of keepers as captain, but a big fan of Hugo, a hugely under appreciated player for us.
    Much like jan we won't realise how good he was until we need to replace him.

    Great saves and leadership apart from that one fumble, when I think he expected De Bruyne to kick either the ball or the Frenchman

    Not great for their first, but kept us in it at times.

    What a save from Gundogen, outlining again for me he is still one the best keepers around. Glad he signed a new contract. Only concern is that we have not had a good understudy for him for years.

    The great save was great, but it doesn’t make up for the spill, it’s not just the goal conceded, it’s the reduction in confidence if those around him.

    I’d give up the spectacular for more reliability.

    It's Hugo at his best and worst compressed into a single game. He has those mistakes in him, always has, always will. But that shot stopping ability is outstanding and does overall make up for it even though it doesn't (always) in the specific games where he makes thirst mistakes.

    All goalkeepers make mistakes of course, Hugo a bit more often than the truly elite best in the world I think. But his overall positive impact has been excellent this season. Hopefully he has another season or two in him at that level. Mistakes will be part of it though.

    Personally, I thought the criticism on Saturday was way over the top - it was a fantastic ball by Sterling, nearly impossible to deal with cleanly given where it landed. He was an easy target because of the previous weekend - where he did fudge up royally - because of, well, narrative.

    All goalkeepers make mistakes. Allison has made more high profile blunders in the last 12-18 months than Lloris has, for my money.

    Disappointed in him last two games. The save was outstanding but even at his most error prone, Hugo would pull of brilliant saves. He went so long without making mistakes that resulted in goals but the last two weeks have been very poor on that score.

    Hopefully he picks it back up because, for my money, there aren't many better goalkeepers in the world than him.
