    Cardiff City host Tottenham Hotspur at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 22nd September 2013 (KO 16:00) in the 5th round of the 2013-14 Premier League season.

    Cardiff come into the match in 10th place in the table on 5 points with Spurs in 2nd place on 9 points.

    This will be the 53rd time the two teams have met and the first time in the Premier League. The last meeting was in the FA Cup in 2007.

    Cardiff City were founded as Riverside AFC in 1899. In 1908, the club changed their name to Cardiff City and moved to Ninian Park two years later. They joined the Southern League Second Division shorty afterwards. The Bluebirds won promotion to the SL First Division for season 1913-14 and ended the 1914-15 season in third place before football was suspended for WW1.

    Cardiff spent one more season in the Southern League before joining the Football League Division Two in 1920-21, when they finished as runners-up and won promotion to Division One.

    The first meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at Ninian Park in August 1921 resulted in a 1-0 win for Spurs with Jimmy Banks scoring the winner. Spurs won the game at White Hart Lane 4-1 a week later with Tommy Clay, Andy Thompson (2) and Jimmy Dimmock all scoring.

    The first FA Cup meeting came in March 1922 with Spurs drawing 1-1 in Cardiff and winning the replay 2-1. To date, the clubs have played six FA Cup games with Spurs winning three, two games drawn and Cardiff winning once.

    The clubs met regularly during the 1920s and early 1930s, including two seasons in Division Two. Two matches were played during World War Two in March 1941 with Spurs winning the War Cup game 3-2 at Ninian Park after a 3-3 draw at White Hart Lane.

    The clubs met for three seasons in Division Two in the 1940s with Spurs winning five of the six matches.

    From 1952 to 1962, Spurs and Cardiff played 14 matches in Division One with 6 wins for Spurs, 4 draws and 4 wins for Cardiff. At the end of the 1961-62 season, Cardiff City were relegated and only returned to the Top Flight for season 2013-14.

    Tottenham drew 0-0 at Cardiff in the Second Division in September 1977 and won the game at White Hart Lane 2-1 in Juanuary 1978 with Scottish striker John Duncan scoring both goals.

    The only Football League Cup match the clubs have contested came in October 2002 with Teddy Sheringham scoring at the Lane.

    The most recent meeting came in the FA Cup 3rd Round in January 2007 with the clubs drawing 0-0 in Cardiff and Spurs winning the replay 4-0 with goals from Aaron Lennon, Robbie Keane, Steed Malbranque and Jermain Defoe.

    During the summer 2013 transfer window, Spurs central defender Steven Caulker moved to Cardiff City for a reported £9,000,000.

    Overall, Spurs have won 28, Cardiff have won 11 and 13 of the 52 matches between the two clubs have been drawn.

    Assuming that Rose is out, but that Kaboul is fit:

    ---------------Lloris--------------
    Walker-Dawson-Kaboul-Vertonghen
    ---------Sandro-Paulinho---------
    Lamela-----Eriksen-----Townsend
    -----------Soldado---------------

    Harsh on Sig perhaps after his two goals against Norwich, but he was our worst player against Tromsø I thought and other than his two goals against Norwich he wasn't all that involved. Eriksen obviously must start and Lamela should keep getting starts now. Townsend gives us something a little different from the others (and Sig) and also gives us some real width down the left with Rose out.

    Agree with that team and comments. If Rosé is out we definitely need Townsends pace.

    However, I may start Sigg and introduce Lamela later on.

    FFS Statto. Your record sucks.

    What I think AVB will do:

    -------------------Lloris-------------------
    Walker-----Daws-------Verts-----Naughton
    -----------Sandro------Paulinho-----------
    -----Townsend---Eriksen----Siggy--------
    -------------------Soldado------------------

    What I hope (if Rose and Dembele are out):

    -------------------Lloris-------------------
    Walker-----Daws-------Kab/Chich-----Verts
    -----------Sandro------Paulinho-----------
    -----Lamela-----Eriksen----Townsend-----
    -------------------Soldado------------------

    Really hope Chadli and Lennon are back soon so we can start seeing our squad and using them properly with this fixture pileup

    I can't help but think we'll draw, with Statto having created this monster of a thread.
