Norwich Vs. Spurs

Win on Boxing day and we will have our best run since 1993. How long can this run continue? Until the new year at least and anything but a Spurs win against a Norwich side recently stuffed by Chelsea will be a big disappointment.

Naybet and Edman are now both fit and should return into the line up in place of Gardner and Atouba. Expect Atouba to drop to the bench as Ziegler should continue on the left wing. Ricketts will start right as this is still our only option that side and Jol likes the team to use lots of width. Carrick and Brown will make up the central pairing. Defoe and Kanoute are likely to start as they clearly hit it off against SCBC last Saturday. However Jol has hinted he will use a rotation policy for his front three so expect changes in the future. The other members will be the excellent King, Robinson and Pamarot.

The major improvement this season has been the away form. I believe we have now equaled the same amount of away victories this season as we did in the whole of the last one. Norwich will be without striker Svensson which will blunt their attacking potential but Spurs will still have to careful. Huckerby showed what pace can do against Naybet at WHL earlier in the season and will be looking to exploit that avenue once again. However Spurs should be too strong for Norwich and will hopefully take all three points down the A12 come 5pm on Boxing Day.

Hark, now hear the Tottenham Sing, The Arsenal run away, as we shall fight forever more because of Boxing Day!
