    Tottenham Hotspur host Norwich City at White Hart Lane on Saturday 1st Seprember 2012 (KO 15:00) in the 3rd round of the 2012-13 Premier League season.

    Tottenham come into the game in 14th place in the table after the 1-1 home draw with West Bromwich Albion, while Norwich are in 16th place after their 1-1 home draw with Queens Park Rangers.

    This will be the 78th time the two teams have met.

    Norwich City were founded in 1902 by three former Norwich Church of England Young Men's Society players. The club lost their amateur status in 1905 and joined the Southern League shortly afterwards.

    The first meeting between Spurs and Norwich came in April 1906 in the Southern League and the East Anglian club won 4-1 at White Hart Lane. The reverse fixture at Newmarket Road was won by Spurs 3-0. Vivian Woodward scored three goals for Spurs against Norwich that season.

    The clubs met for two further seasons in the Southern League, resulting in two wins for Norwich, a win for Spurs and a drawn match.

    Spurs joined the Football League for season 1908-09 and the next meeting with Norwich came in the old second round (today's fourth round) of the FA Cup in January 1915 at "The Nest" in Rosary Road, resulting in a 3-2 win for the Canaries.

    Four friendlies were played between 1916 and 1925 with Spurs winning two games, Norwich one and one drawn game.

    The first Football League meeting between the two clubs came in the Second Division in December 1935 with Spurs winning 2-1 at the Lane, while Norwich won the reverse fixture 1-0 in April 1936 at their new home in Carrow Road.

    The clubs met for a further three seasons in Division Two resulting in four wins for Spurs and two for Norwich.

    During World War Two, Spurs & Norwich played two matches in the Football League South.

    An FA Cup fifth round match in February 1959 ended in a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane and Norwich pulled-off a 'giant killing' act by beating Spurs 1-0 in the replay at Carrow Road.

    The first meeting in the Top Flight of English Football came in October 1972 when a Martin Chivers goal at Carrow Road wasn't enough to prevent a 2-1 win for Norwich.

    The clubs contested the 1973 Football League Cup Final at Wembley and a Ralph Coates goal was enough to bring the silverware to White Hart Lane.

    Martin Chivers scored a brace in Tottenham's 3-1 win against Norwich in the reverse First Division fixture at the Lane a week later.

    The clubs met regularly in Division One from season 1973-74 to 1991-92 with honours being generally even.

    Both Spurs and Norwich were founder members of the Premier League in 1992-93, but the Canaries lost their top flight status after the 1994-95 season and returned for one season in 2004-05. Spurs won 6 of the 10 Premier League matches played with Norwich winning twice and two drawn games.

    The clubs met in a pre-season friendly at Carrow Road in July 2008 with Darren Bent scoring four goals in a 5-1 Spurs win.

    The reverse fixture at Carrow Road last season in December resulted in a rather comfortable 2-0 away win for Spurs, thanks to a brace of goals scored by Gareth Bale in the 55th and 67th minutes.

    Things were rather different for the revese fixture at White Hart Lane in April 2012 with Spurs losing 1-2 to Norwich. Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs with Anthony Pilkington and Elliott Bennett netting for the Canaries in a match which would prove vital for Tottenham✧s Champions League qualification chances.

    During the Summer, Cameroon defender Sebastien Bassong moved from Spurs to Norwich for a £3,750,000 transfer fee.

    Overall, Spurs have won 34, Norwich have won 23 and 20 of the 77 matches between the two clubs have been drawn.

    At last! A decent OMT to get behind, I feel that the OMT Gods will be suitably impressed, with a 2-1 win for Spurs.

    Isn't it too early for next Saturday's OMT ? There used to be a rule that OMT will only work for us if posted 2 or 3 days before the match.

    I don't think we're finished yet.

    Players like Jermaine Jenas, David Bentley, Giovani Dos Santos and Heurelho Gomes could still be sold-on or loaned out.

    Then there's the Luka Modric saga and whoever we get to replace him if he does indeed join Real Madrid.

    By the way, how can you say Dawson and Hudd has gone to other clubs when their deals haven't been confirmed ? Are you a time traveller or something ?

    Crap OMT! The first two photos are of our opponents!! Surely we should be first, as we are in the naming of the thread.

    I hate to think what lays in store for you here if we fail to win.

    2 poorly started OMTs so far, 1 point to show for it. More Horny Goat Weed Raboner? because it looks like you couldn't wait to get this up.
