I singled out Rudd because she has had a personal vendetta against him from him getting done for drink driving. She came out at said, "the media have let him off lightly". She has subsequently written multiple articles about him, all season. This formulates opinion. There are very few people (fans) who are free thinkers in football, the acid test is to log in here when I get back from a match, it's like I've watched a different game. I thin rewatch the game again and then I understand why some things get said, they are quoting almost word for word what the co-coms are saying. You know the ridiculous stuff "Eriksen the wonder free kick taker" as he lines up to take a free kick.I think Alyson Rudd is a poor football journalist, but your rant is as two footed as hers in many ways, as even that radar shows he's got some severe deficiencies and they are things people also see with their eyes - like his poor distribution and claims. And I doubt anyone's opinion of Lloris was based on Alyson Rudd's rant, more the fact that they have watched him for years almost every game.
The below tells a different story about his shot stopping from last season for example. Only his positioning and aggressive distance were scoring high, shot stopping clearly poor, along with distribution and claiming balls (which remain poor this season) he should be.
Overall I think he's had a better season than last, but one of the reason's his shot stopping score has risen is almost certainly due to us facing much more shots and better quality shots (x/g wise) as this is how their metric is derived by evaluating the x/g of shots faced and the quantity.
He's a decent keeper, but plenty of the criticism has been fair and is fuck all to do with Alyson Rudd. The issue has always been "who would we upgrade him with", not that he's perfect (who is).
They create opinion, they say it enough times and it becomes true.
Rudd stuff is just my personal complaint, nothing more than that because she got on my tits.
I have posted what I thought was excellent analysis on 'keepers, for which there is very few and no consensus what stats are appropriate to use to show how good/bad they are, there is a lot to be done in this area. But it ain't the ones used today like clean sheets etc.. Anyway, if you are interested it's logical and made sense to me, it has Lloris still one of the top 5 'keepers in the World. This includes him not being able to kick well or distribute quickly. I agree with some of the stuff you've listed too.
