Hugo Lloris

Recently we've been labelled a one man team, however I would argue that Hugo Lloris is as big in importance as Gareth Bale.

This season in the league we have conceded 30 goals in 26 games. Breaking this down further, Brad Friedel conceded 16 goals in 10 games and Hugo just the 14 in 16 games. So he conceded 2 fewer in 6 more matches. Considering 5 of the goals were against the scum, when the team fell apart in front of him; if you took that out he has conceded just 9 in 15, and has kept 7 clean sheets.

After 11 games this season in a table of goals conceded we would have sat 11th (Least goals conceded would be top). The reason I say 11th is because Friedel played in 10 and in the middle of them Lloris kept a clean sheet against Villa. Now however since Lloris has started, in a table of goals conceded over 26 games we sit 5th. Meaning we have risen 6 places. And if we look at the overall team performance, with Friedel we won 4 drew 2 and lost 4. So 14 points from 10 games, which is midtable form.

However with Hugo its: won 10 drew 4 and lost 2, giving us 34 from 16 games, which is more than an average of 2 points a game, which over a season would give you around 80 points, which would probably be 3rd place going on 2nd. This to me shows the impact that Hugo has had in our team, and we have to bare in mind he has had an ever changing back 4 in front of him, but has still limited the goals against.

The main thing about him is that it's not so much world-class saves, but how many times do you see him racing off his line to the edge of the box to clear the ball. He's a keeper which prevents chances from coming, meaning he doesnt have to make as many saves and whilst Friedel didnt make any obvious mistakes I cant help but wonder if we had Lloris from the beginning we would have done better in the early games of the season, particularly the opening 3.

I'm expecting some people to respond and say how Friedel played against the top teams, like Chelsea, Man City, and Manure. Which he did, and conceded 8, which isnt a good return. And I know Lloris has conceded 6 against the scum and United, but I feel the game against the scum wasnt his fault in any way as 9 players in front of him just folded once Ade went off. So yeah we're by no means a one-man team, but maybe a two-man team..
