Hugo Lloris: Pleased by Gareth Bale's form

Bale netted in Tottenham's 1-1 draw with Swindon on Tuesday and while goalkeeper Lloris was pleased by his team-mate's form, he stressed it was early days for the player linked with a move to Real Madrid.

"It's nice to see him in good form," Lloris told Sky Sports.

"But pre-season is long so we need to concentrate on our work. It's good to see him but it's just the beginning."

Spurs will be bolstered by the arrival of Paulinho from Corinthians in the forthcoming season and Lloris sees that as an indication of the club's growing reputation.

"It's a good thing for us to have a Brazil international in our team," added the France No.1.

"It shows that the club is still developing and improving because we can have now some great players like Paulinho."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
