Norwich v Tottenham - 30th Jan

Postby Hams » Sun Jan 27, 2013 9:09 pm

Norwich were knocked out of the FA Cup by Luton Town
at the weekend and have also failed to win any of their last 5 PL fixtures.

Tottenham were also beaten in the FA Cup 2-1 by Leeds but have
been doing much better in the PL and are currently in 4th place above Arsenal in the table.

Any comments or predictions?

Well, back to the Prem and I think this won't be easy. Not that Norwich have been playing well, more that we seem to be a bit 'constipated' when it comes to scoring lately. I'll take 0-1.

being a Gooner i would love Tottenham to slip up here , but i think Tottenham will have enough to beat Norwich ...unless of course it is one of those crazy matches where the form book goes out the window ...for me though Tottenham win .

I wonder if the Spurs will play with a striker this time as they took on Leeds in the FA Cup without any forwards.

Did you know that only once in PL history have Tottenham had more points than their 41 after 23 games this season (49 points last season).

Any more comments or predictions?

Norwich have bought well, and so can steer away from the relegation zone this year.

I'm going for an upset here, with Norwich winning 2-0.

I think that Tottenham will miss Adebayor.

When i say that Gareth Bale is the nearest thing to CR7 in the Premier League, maybe you might start to realise why. What a goal.

Draw was a fair result in all honesty. Gutted we didnt win as we would have but more distance between us and the chasing pack but never mind.

I hope Norwich get relegated. A bogey team for us.

It was a great goal by Gareth Bale but why did the Norwich defenders let him run with the ball like that without even putting in a tackle?!

Well, a let off for the Lily Whites, with Arsenal and Chelsea slipping up as well. Meanwhile, the dark horses most of us are expecting to fade, Everton, get another three points. Big repect for the Moyes man. I heard AVB interviewed after the game last night, doesn't look like we are going to get another striker. We really could do with Defoe getting back some of the form he was showing before Christmas. Adebayor wasn't pulling up trees before he went to Africa, so I'd be surprised if he comes back and starts to find the back of the net again. The jury is still out on Dempsey, lots of endeavour but few goals so far. I've going to see Spurs play the Baggies on Sunday - a must win if we are going to stay on track for 4th.

Eh? That Teppey dude tried to wipe him out!

The other defenders back tracked because Bale is just too fast if they committed to a tackle.

If it was me I would have fouled him to stop him and taken whatever punishment the ref saw fit to give me!

That is exactly what the guy tried to do, but Bale rode it and stayed on his feet. Obviously wasn't in the penalty area ;)
