So this guy is still with the club, right? I still don’t understand why Joe Hart is the backup ahead of him.

Because we have a full set of overseas trained players in EL squad so Hart as an HG player and back up gk can be fitted into the squad, whereas Gazzaniga cannot be

Maybe Hart being a more vocal person and bigger personality in changing room helps as well.

Neither great gk's though.

I guess my response to this would be I'd prefer Gazza to play in PL matches if Lloris got hurt. Therefore, Lloris should just play all the games. There's no point keeping Joe Hart match sharp if he's the 3rd string keeper, which he should be.
 
....These lads are really starting to be a pain on this front aren't they.

We have Rodon to fit in come Jan too.



Last night's clamour for Gazzaniga is classic bipolar fan syndrome.... Much like many here spent long stretches bouncing from Trippier/Aurier and Dier/Sanchez/Toby from week to week; overlooking the errors/form that had put them in the doghouse to begin with.

The other guy is 'best'.
Gazzaniga was fairly poor for us last year with Lloris out, but I do have faith he'd have stopped one of those goals from going in, if not the first two. The first two goals last night should have been comfortable saves.

I think I'd take Gaz over Hart in a league game based on what we saw last night but it's a position that needs sorting.

But we've seen Gazz slayed for equally bad errors (just look through this thread)....

Go back a few pages in the Hart thread too.... The vibe was "pleasantly suprised".

I just think peeps are kidding themselves thinking there's a vast/significant difference between them at their worst.

Maybe even look at the old Voorm thread..... Bet there's more cuss than praise in there too.
 
Question for you then is which overseas player would you want to go to create space for him in EL squad (and would the lack of that player cause a hole n the squad/could you find an HG player to replace him easily without any big money requirement ) ? Because that's a similar question the club probably went through to sign Hart as cover in preference to an overseas trained player.
Spurs 17 overseas trained players in EL squad :
Lloris, Aurier, Doherty, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Davies, Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Lucas, Ndombele, Son, Bergwijn, Vinicius, Lamela

The alternative question is which HG player would you prefer to have over Hart ?
I thought I made it clear that I’d just play Lloris in the EL.
 
No you avoided the question., Our problem is that with only 17 overseas places there is no place for Gazzaniga in EL without selling another overseas player to accomodate him
I’m not avoiding the question. I wouldn’t have put Gazzanigga in the EL lineup.
 
Don't think that's fair I recall a game away at Liverpool might have been where he was excellent. Perfectly good number two good guy sound temperament keeps Mrs P happy. Dump Hart get Onnan as Hugo's replacement Austin as third. Fix our English issue with Mitchell, Aarons, Skipp, in Doherty Sissoko Sanchez out.
No better than Hart and not stealing a foreign player slot.
 
Mason's mates--Poch's pal.
Ridiculous signing.
He was nothing more than OK and caused us non-HG problems.
But good luck to the guy. He's handsome and rich so I don't suppose he will be weeping in his bed tonight that we gave him the Spanish archer.
