    Some interesting posts on the Southampton fans forum: https://www.saintsweb.co.uk/topic/60254-bazunu/page/29/

    Obviously I am going to be looking for the positive posts (he still has doubters there) but I like this on a few levels. I'd say his confidence stopped getting battered at some point since he joined Southampton.

    "His distribution is on a different level to what we've had for many years. Our CB's protected him really well to be honest, but he was called on in the last min and put in a ridiculous block - not sure what part of his body it was.


    He's playing with confidence now and it's good to see. He was hung out to dry last year and he must have some balls to come back from being pummelled for 12 months."

    Concedes an 87th minute equaliser to Huddersfield "from long range" (BBC Football).

    It was a cross-cum-shot from the corner of the box that eluded the defenders and ended up in the far corner - very similar to the hotel Kelleher conceded at home to Ukraine last year

    Yea - he completely missed the flight of the ball. Had very little to do all game and should have been better - a poor game all round from Bazunu - he fluffed a cross earlier in the game as well.

    With Fraser Foster 36 in March and Hugo Lloris surely on his way in the summer, then I can see why GB would interest them.

    But it would have to be as back-up, maybe with potential for a few years ahead, since there's no way on earth he'll displace Vicario any time soon. Vicario, 27 last month, has been absolutely brilliant this season and he's just the type of gk Postecoglu seems to admire.

    Obviously if Bazunu signs Vicario will still be needed when Bazunu needs a rest, especially if Spurs qualify for the champions league.

    Presumably it's a contingency plan for when Juventus (or whoever) try buy Vicario and by that time, Bazunu might just have reached a level that he'd be of interest to Spurs

    I haven't been following it that closely but the bits I have got says that Vicario has been playing very well alright.
    I just asked Bard ( googles Large Language Model ) ~

    " Has Vicario been playing well in goal for Tottenham this season ? "



    Yes, Guglielmo Vicario has been playing very well in goal for Tottenham Hotspur this season. He has been one of the main reasons why Tottenham has been so successful so far this season.
    Vicario has been praised for his athleticism, reflexes, and decision-making. He has been very consistent and has made a number of important saves for Tottenham. He has also been very good at commanding his area and has helped to organize the Tottenham defense.
    Vicario's performances have earned him the admiration of Tottenham fans and pundits alike. He is seen as a major signing for Tottenham and is considered to be one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe.
    Here are some of the statistics that highlight Vicario's impressive performances this season:

    • Clean sheets: Vicario has kept 10 clean sheets in 17 Premier League appearances for Tottenham this season.
    • Save percentage: Vicario has a save percentage of 84.2% in the Premier League this season. This is the highest save percentage of any goalkeeper in the Premier League this season.
    • Goals conceded per game: Vicario has conceded an average of 0.53 goals per game in the Premier League this season. This is the second-lowest goals conceded per game rate of any goalkeeper in the Premier League this season.

    Vicario's performances have been a major factor in Tottenham's success this season. He is a key player for Tottenham and is expected to continue to play a major role in the team's success in the future.

    I would be a little cautious about Bard and other LLMs on current affairs. I asked it a few broad questions about Spurs' season, and while it clearly has recent data (e.g. it could tell me the score of their match on the weekend), it also listed Harry Kane among their best performing players for the season. For anyone who has been living under a rock: Harry Kane moved to Bayern Munich this summer.

    Asking the same question for Gavin:

    Yes, Gavin Bazunu has been playing well in goal for Southampton this season. He has made 19 appearances for the Saints in all competitions, keeping six clean sheets. He has been a consistent performer for the Saints, and is considered to be one of the best young goalkeepers in the EFL Championship.
    Here are some of Bazunu's key statistics for the 2023-24 season:

    • Appearances: 19
    • Clean sheets: 6
    • Goals conceded: 21
    • Save percentage: 68.8%

    Bazunu is still only 21 years old, and has the potential to develop into a top-class goalkeeper. He is already a valuable asset to Southampton, and is likely to attract interest from Premier League clubs in the future.

    And finally: Both Caoimhín Kelleher and Gavin Bazunu are young, talented goalkeepers with promising futures. They have both played well for their respective clubs, and have the potential to become top-class goalkeepers. However, it is difficult to say definitively which goalkeeper is better, as they have different strengths and weaknesses.Here is a comparison of their key statistics for the 2023-24 season:
    Statistic Caoimhín Kelleher Gavin Bazunu
    Appearances 6 19
    Clean sheets 2 6
    Goals conceded 6 21
    Save percentage 77.8% 68.8%

    drive_spreadsheetExport to Sheets



    As you can see, Kelleher has a better save percentage than Bazunu, but Bazunu has kept more clean sheets. This is likely due to the fact that Kelleher has played fewer games, and has faced stronger opposition.
    Ultimately, the question of who is the better goalkeeper is a matter of opinion. Both Kelleher and Bazunu are talented players with promising futures. It will be interesting to see how their careers develop in the years to come.

    Interestingly, Bazunu has played 17 games this season, has two clean sheets, a save percentage of 59.4% and has conceded 27 goals...

    So probably not the most reliable!

    Obviously Bard is using the discussions it's read here to argue that many of those goals don't count.

    Yep. Vicario incidentally has four clean sheets in 13 games, a save percentage of 75.4%, and has conceded 17 goals.

    (From here - https://fbref.com/en/players/77d6fd4d/Guglielmo-Vicario)

    Vicario is 27 but had only played four Serie A games before the 21/22 season, and had been lower league before that (D/C/B). Another one for the discussion on late-blooming keepers we'd had on the Kelleher thread

    On the (admittedly limited) evidence of this season, where I've seen Spurs live 6 or 7 times, TV the rest, I genuinely wouldn't swap Vicario for any other gk in the PL. Seriously.

    For instance, 4 of those goals conceded were vs Chelsea, when Spurs were down to 9 men. Postecoglu insisted on Spurs maintaining a high press(!), meaning that in addition to his usual quota of flying saves etc, Vicario was continually tearing out of his box to deal with Chelsea through balls etc. He won every single one, including 3 foot races against Raheem Sterling.

    He may be in the form of his life, it may not be able to be maintained, who knows whether injury or a new manager etc may affect him in future. But on present showing, he is a clear level (two?) ahead of Bazunu, no harm to the latter.

    I think it's generally accepted that Vicario has been very good this season, revelatory even.

    Random English rag reports Spurs looking at Bazunu. Random Ireland football supporters respond with a blend of knocking Bazunu down and building Vicario up.

    Must be coming up to that time of year again when stories from the summer and previous seasons start recirculating again.

    Spurs must have been linked with Bazunu every transfer window since he left Man City. Next week someone will be talking about how Chelsea are still somewhat interested in Bazunu.
