Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris ruled out until new year with dislocated elbow:

Bad news for Spurs and our captain of course BUT one wonders if this will be a blessing in disguise. Lloris has been making mistakes of late – Southampton and this incident at Brighton very recent examples. Also, his kicking leaves a whole lot to be desired. 

Two implications come to mind. 

One, is Gazzaniga good enough for the rigours of the Premier League? So far, he has not really let the team down when called upon AND his kicking is so much better than Lloris. Might be Gazza’s chance to make the position his own. Who knows?

Two, Harry Kane will now take over as captain and I think this might be a good thing in light of the poor results and the mediocre team performances. Kane is passionate about Spurs and he could be the right man to give these prima donnas a kick up their collective arses!
