I'm all for selling Hugo, I think his time is up.Less brain farts yes, I agree but if his instructions is to lump it, it shouldn't be a problem.
Where I disagree is that Hugo is way better under the high ball, I've noticed a couple of times (before Hugo got injured and Gazza hadn't had a run of games) that Gazza hesitates when the high ball comes in and is a poor decision maker.
That doesn't mean that he can't improve on that, see De Gea at Utd he was a real vampire when he first came to the PL but has improved immensely.
As an old cunt I prefer 'keepers to be better at shot stopping than passing. IMO Gazza is a very, very good No.2 but not quite good enough to be a No.1
That being said I agree with bringing in a younger 'keeper, of course that would mean either Gazza or Hugo goes.
By contrast Lloris is usually at the top of the XG save stats (go see his thread for the ones that I have posted, allbe it from a totally differnt data source so bear that in mind).
So this guy is still with the club, right? I still don’t understand why Joe Hart is the backup ahead of him.
