Tottenham v Norwich

Postby Conner99 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 7:18 pm

Tottenham will be eager to put the devastating defeat to bitter rivals Arsenal behind them as they focus on the game against Norwich , with Gareth Bale now history it will be up to Andre Villas-Boas to use his new summer signings to make as big an impact as possible .



Norwich had a 1-0 win over Southampton and are now in 9th place in the table , it was an important to win after taking only a point from their first two games , manager Chris Hughton said after the game "At this stage of the season we are just delighted with the win. We had got a very good point against Everton, but then it was disappointing when we lost against Hull so it was important we got the three points" .

Norwich can either get completely and utterly overawed and beaten
comprehensively or they can shock the life out of any team by
playing ruthless football and making the most out of the aerial ability
of Van Wolfswinkel. I think Leroy Fer has been a quality signing for
Norwich and if he's on his game can be as effective as De Jong used
to be for City.

That said if Boas has managed to make any sense of that disjointed
collative he put out against Arsenal then who knows. Spurs could
absolutely dominate the possession and hammer a few home.

3-2 Spudz

I think Spurs will be too good for Norwich and I'm hoping that Soldado will score to give me some points for my fantasy team.

Tottenham 3-1 Norwich

Did you know that Tottenham have kept three consecutive clean sheets at home in the Premier League.
They last kept more in Dec 2009-Feb 2010 when they managed a run of five shut-outs.

Any more comments or predictions?

FT

Tottenham 2-0 Norwich
1-0 Sigurdsson 28'
2-0 Sigurdsson 49’

It was an easy and deserved win for Spurs with Icelandic midfielder Sigurdsson scoring twice.

Any comments on todays result?

Very happy with a very easy win, dec ent debutante performance by Eriksson and a general dominance in every area of the park . We need to build on this and perhaps think about injecting more pace in attack, otherwise no complaints.

It was a brilliant debut by Christian Eriksen and I also thought that Danny Rose played very well at left back.

Does anybody think that Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris should have been sent off for punching ball away outside his box?

Must say i only saw hi lights of this game but Eriksen looked half decent against Norwich. He had the type of quickness and technique that i think would serve him well against better opposition also ,very lively addition.

At times yesterday, I thought Spurs played like they were carrying out a routine
training session. Eriksson in particular looked particularly composed ,and was
expressly granted the freedom of White Hart Lane by a seriously lacklustre Norwich.

Eriksson is a quality player ,but affording him too much respect by allowing him the
opportunity to pop the ball about in neat little triangles of play will leave any team
playing catch up for the rest of the match.

I said prior to this game that Norwich have a Jekyll and Hyde persona ,and very really
do they achieve a balance between the two,and yesterday Norwich were abysmal.

I was particularly impressed with Danny Rose though ,and Sigurdsson looked very
adept at finding space in the box ....that lad might make a decent striker. :wink:

Good win for Spurs ,but their complete domination of the game as a contest should
of yielded far more a convincing scoreline.

The less said concerning Norwich the better though ,totally bereft of an idea and
conceded possession on far too many occasions.

I would hesitate to even begin describing just what the purpose of their midfield
was yesterday,because quite frankly I've seen colanders with less holes.
