Happy New Year, everyone. 2011 has been quite a year for Spurs supporters. The year started on a high, with the defeat of AC Milan in knockout stage of the Champions League. But disappointment followed, with elimination from the competition by Real Madrid, an early FA Cup destruction to Fulham, and a limp 5th place finish. But the second half of 2011 has been much better, as Spurs have gone into 2012 with a grip on 3rd place in the league.

But before 2011 ends, Tottenham has one more challenge away to Swansea City. The Swans are off to a strong start in their first season in the Premiership. Manager Brendan Rodgers has the team at midtable with only one loss in eleven home fixtures. The team has been led by its stingy defense, with Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm proving world class in net. Danny Graham and Scott Sinclair are the main goal scorers for Swansea's struggling attack. The Swans will be hurt though by the absence of Tottenham loanee Steven Caulker.

The Writers Prediction League continues. Only Mechanick and Ryan were confident of a Tottenham win against Norwich, and thus got the points for the win. The rules remain, one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here's the current standings:

Name Score
Ryan 14
Ashlock 12
Mechanick 10
Kevin 8
Evan 7
The Roosevelts 7

This week's predictions after the jump:

Kevin: Swansea looks good in midfield but can't get the finishing touch from anyone. Manny being Manny with the second half winner. 1-0 Tottenham

Ashlock: Swansea play good football, but Spurs play gooder football. 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: Tottenham beat lower-half teams. Swansea don't lose at home. Momentum makes the difference. 2-0 Spurs

Ryan: Ledley isn't playing so that's a goal to Swansea. 2-1 Spurs

The Roosevelts: [To Be Determined, as our Mystery Man is AWOL]

Evan: 'Arry let's the boys run around a bit on Swansea. 3-0 Spurs
