Writers Prediction League: Tottenham Hotspur at Norwich City

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match at Norwich City.

Charlie Crowhurst

Goals! Tottenham's last Premier League match saw a scoring explosion as Tottenham defeated Newcastle United 4-0. Emmanuel Adebayor ran rampant on the back of a strong team-wide performance. However, a surprisingly strong Tottenham side put in a poor performance in midweek, losing 1-0 to Dnipro in Ukraine. Which Tottenham team will show up in their next match?

Today's challenge will come in traveling to Norwich City. The Canaries sit in 17th place, just outside of the relegation places. The main struggle has come in scoring goals, with a total that is second worst in the league. The goals that have been scored have been scored primarily by Gary Hooper. Sebastian Bassong will lead the defense that tries to stop his former team while John Ruddy marshals as goalkeeper. Can Norwich find the goal scoring they need to win?

As for the Prediction League, all but Michael saw the win against Newcastle coming. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Name Score
The Sleeper's Sleep 20

Michael Caley 17
Ed 17
Uncle Menno 16
Skipjack 15
Ryan 15
Kevin 15
Ashlock 14
The Roosevelts


This week's predictions:

Ed: 3-0 Spurs. Sorry Chris.

Uncle Menno: Let's make "away" the new "home." Since, y'know, we're not very good at home. 3-1 Spurs.

Kevin: 1-0 Spurs. Chris Hughton sucks.

Mechanick: Even though Spurs should win big, this feels like the sort of game where a set piece proves the difference. 1-0 Spurs

Ryan: "Did you see nipple? It only counts if you saw a nipple!" 3-1 Spurs.

Ashlock: I heard there were nipples in the Hoddle the other day. Does that count? 1-0 Spurs.

The Roosevelts: I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids. 2-1 Spurs

Lennon's Eyebrow: Chickens > Canaries. 2-0 Spurs.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. Never get teeth pulled.

Michael Caley: 2-1 Spurs. Norwich create chances, but can't finish. We allow chances but not goals. Hope we get one more week of those trends.

The Sleeper's Sleep: Wrinkly, lovesick fawn. 2-0 Spurs.

Skipjack: I think Daniel Bryan SHOULD win on sunday but - oh. Spurs. 4-2 Totten-ham Hot-spurs. Clap clap clapclapclap
