That might have something to do with a lack of match fitness. Would say it's something that improves for all keepers the more regularly they play.Good shot stopper but dear lord he is dreadful under high balls and generally hesitant to leave his line. Still has many things he needs to improve if he wants to give Lloris any serious challenge.
With a shaven head. Implies he is a mad cunt trying to become a Navy Seal or some shit. Not to be fucked with. Leave his box alone. Mother fuckers.He is a great back up to Lloris, better than Vorm now, but something has been bothering me since the game yesterday. Is he is better looking with a shaven head or not?
His contract is up at the end of the season so we can and no reports of him being injured so we can safely assume he's being phased out. We need an English 'keeper as our third choice next season for homegrown rules.What happened to Vorm? Is he injured or just being phased out?
Alfie Whiteman is that guy, right?His contract is up at the end of the season so we can and no reports of him being injured so we can safely assume he's being phased out. We need an English 'keeper as our third choice next season for homegrown rules.
How old is he? If they're younger than 21 they don't have to be registered for the CL do they?Alfie Whiteman is that guy, right?
As for Gazza, he's a great shot stopper and has good distribution. But I worry about his command of the box, seems apprehensive to come out and claim. In the Prem, that's a killer.
Something to work on.
Deal's up at the end of the season so the latter one would expect...What happened to Vorm? Is he injured or just being phased out?
Agreed. Bodes very well as an eventual successor if he can keep improving.Lloris is a better keeper, but Gazzaniga has certainly earned himself the spot as number 2.
You can't think like that pal. He wasn't getting a look in at Southampton and we took a punt on him. We need to get out of this mindset that we are a selling club, superstars or fringe players. He's a Tottenham player, he's playing more first team games now than at any time of his career in this country and he won't be going anywhere unless it benefits Tottenham.Unfortunately given how good he's proven to be I don't think we'll be able to keep hold of him because Lloris will be the de facto No.1 keeper for many more years to come and Gazza is not exactly young anymore. I'm almost certain any half-decent club can lure him away if they promise him the No.1 spot. Not that I can blame him, the man must want to play week in week out for club and country and he rightfully deserves to. I would say getting some good money out of him while keeping Vorm would be the best course of action for everyone should it be inevitable that he will go.
As I always love to say whenever Baarsden is mentioned (it happens a lot, trust me), he gave up football to become a fund manager for an asset company.That's a name I never thought I'd read again...

There were like two games where I thought he was definitely better than Ian Walker.
As for Gazzaniga, I'm really happy with how he's been playing. Now Hugo has got over his wobble and given his obvious very important leadership qualities I don't see Paolo dislodging him anytime soon. When you're only playing 15% of games it's less difficult to put in consistently good performances and I think this is what is happening here. Still very pleased he's here though, and want him to play all available "lesser" fixtures. Oh, and I would.
Ohhhh yes. I would.
