Rough days here around Spursland. Declining fortunes, injuries, and inconsistent form have hurt Spurs in November. But with players like Mousa Dembele and Scott Parker on their way back to health, optimism has a reason to appear again.
In the way this week is West Ham United, two points above Spurs on the table. The Hammers have been led so far by Kevin Nolan, as the talismanic attacking midfielder has been the primary goal scorer and creator. Andy Carroll's led the line with his aerial force, while Winston Reid and James Tomkins have turned into a formidable defensive duo.
As for the prediction league, only Ed won points with his pessimistic view of the North London Derby. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:
This week's predictions:
Kevin: Big Sam gonna Big Sam. 0-0 Draw.
Mechanick: Spurs Break Bad. 2-1 Spurs
Ryan: We need to win, badly. 1-1 Draw.
Ashlock: Sam Allardyce and Harry Redknapp are friends, I bet Big Sam tries to win this for Harry. 1-1 Draw.
The Roosevelts: Wins don't exist anymore, having ceased to be like the Doo Doo bird, and Chevy Chase on Community. 0-0 Draw
Ed: With Moose back on board we should walk this one. I mean literally, he will walk the ball through their midfield to set up some delicious goals for us. 2-0 Spurs.
Petrilli: Know what the true spirit of Thanksgiving is? Thomas Carroll. 2-1 Tottenham.
Uncle Menno: I think ham is tastier than turkey anyway. 3-1 Tottenham.
