Spurs face a potentially tricky trip to Carrow Road tonight to face a Norwich side who are just starting to grind out some points at the bottom of the Premiership table. Tottenham new boy Clint Dempsey is wary of the threat posed but at the same time, the American international is confident of progression.

To cash in or to find the real Steven Pienaar?

Much of the Spurs transfer talk has centred around Steven Pienaar at the moment as the season draws to an end. Steven is currently out on loan at Everton and it seems clear that both the Merseyside club and the player would favour a permanent return to Goodison before the beginning of the 2012-13 campaign.

Aston Villa finished 2011 with a big upset victory over Chelsea, and Brad Guzan played a part in making that happen.

In his fifth start of the season, Guzan helped the Villans stun Chelsea, 3-1, on Saturday.

Bale: Adebayor has lifted our spirits

After Tottenham's fine victory over Liverpool at the weekend, much of the talk amongst players and staff has been over the form of Emmanuel Adebayor who has underlined what we all knew during the barren transfer window of January 2011. A world class striker can transform a side and we all hope that Ade's goals help to propel the side right up the Premiership table.

This weekend or next we have the opportunity to clinch third place, and to celebrate, each in our own way, the annual pleasure of St Totteringham's Day.

Although of only recent inception, St Totterigham's has now become a popular and much anticipated event. Oh how we love it! But it is not the only annual Arsenal celebration, and so I propose that we formally instate another shared feast.

Man City and a quandary

A balance sheet that reads hundreds of millions more Euros in expenses than income. A defender who is just returning from a suspension enforced because of his use of banned substances. A star striker, former captain, who is on strike and refusing to play for the club anymore. On the brink of an exit from the European Champions League after a defeat by Napoli in Italy.

English Premier league at related • 0 views

Although the winter transfer market is still far away, Tottenham Hotspurs have already set one of their main transfer target in January, which is Bolton Wanderers' star defender, Gary Cahill, who was actually targeted since this summer.

Confirmation about Spurs' undying interest on Cahill, arrives from the Lilywhites' manager, Harry Redknapp, who revealed to the press his hope to finally acquire the center back's signature after failing to do so in the summer market.

Three points, three goals and a beautiful day for Swansea

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 0 views

So, Swansea City now have their first win under their belt, scoring their first goals and securing their first ‘sell out' of the season as the stadium finally hit the 20,000 mark.

It's been a long time coming but the Swans can now breathe a huge sigh of relief, with the vital three points propelling Brendan Rogers's side into fourteenth and after a superb performance on Saturday, Swansea fans will be wondering whether pundits may have been too quick to right off the team as relegation fodder only a few weeks into the new season.

Thoughts On Tactics And Starting Eleven Against Blackburn Rovers

Desi Gunner at related • 1 view

It'd be hard to find many teams that have had a more difficult start to the season than the Gunners. But few will argue that the next club to host Arsenal isn't facing desperate times.

As a Gooner one can sympathize with another club that is looking to do things the right way. The new owners don't seem to be very popular amongst the Ewood Park faithful but won my approval when they sacked Fat Sam.

Having lived in Norfolk for almost forty years, if I have a second club then I suppose it must be The Canaries.  That said, there is no doubt as to where my loyalties lie today, whole-heartedly with The Gunners.

A quick glance at the Premiership table is all it takes to indicate just how important today's game against Norwich City is.

Premiership Party: Manchester City Back On Top, Luis Suarez’s Exit & Villa Mascot Refuses Handshake

Following that epic "Telenovela de la década" handshake refusal from Liverpool's Luis Suarez on Saturday, the Uruguayan has effectively morphed into a Prodigal Son-type character within the British tabloids. Except instead of wasting his fortune, he wasted his chances to get back into everybody's good books and is now unceremoniously linked to Liverpool exit.

Spurs - Everton Preview: Fare Thee Well, Game In Hand

All Action, No Plot at related • 1 view

So finally this much-vaunted "Game in Hand" is upon us. Truth be told, I will be a little sad to see it go. It has practically become part of the family, like a scruffy, uncouth urchin discovered in the wreckage of the summer riots, and adopted by the cheery folk of White Hart Lane. And let's face it, this Game in Hand has proved more useful than the Sword of Omens when it comes to pointless bickering with fans of l'Arse, Chelski, Liverpool and the like.

How do Spurs replace the wing men?

With the loss of Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon on Sunday, Spurs lost much of the potency that had helped them climb the Premiership table and into third place.

Ultimately we won the game but if you saw a brief but apt Match of the Day package on Sunday night, you'll have seen where Bale in particular, was sorely missed.

The Reds had another season to forget. - 37 points behind the title winners, Manchester City - Racism rows which divided opinions between player, manager and owners - A totally unnecessary siege mentality - Finishing behind cross-town rivals, Everton - Losing pathetically in the FA Cup Final - Having a dismal home record at what used to be "fortress" Anfield - Not gaining maximum points against the eventual bottom six in the Premiership table
And yet, Liverpool amidst a trying season, won the Carling Cup, making Suarez, Carroll and Henderson first time winners of an English club football competition.
