Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood is wary of Norwich’s ability to upset the Premier League’s established order ahead of his side’s weekend trip to Carrow Road.

Sherwood’s old club held Manchester City last time out at home and beat the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal on home soil during Chris Hughton’s debut season.

Tottenham endured a fruitless Europa League excursion to the Ukraine in midweek, but Sherwood is urging his squad to re-focus on their quest for Champions League qualification.

“Norwich have taken some big scalps at Carrow Road and we’re fully aware of that,” he said. “We have to put Dnipro out of our minds, put it to bed until next week and it’s important we get the three points at Carrow Road. We’ve been in good away form. We need to go there in a positive frame of mind and maintain our run.”

Sherwood paid tribute to Tottenham’s travelling support who travelled to the Ukraine amid a backdrop of civil unrest and political instability.

“The players were not expecting any of our fans to travel due to all the troubles in Kiev but I told them they would because they always have been there for us,” Sherwood told his club’s official site. “Even when I was a player they have always travelled wherever we played.

“The boys were certainly grateful and we want to say a massive thank you to those fans who travelled all the way to Dnipro and we will look to put things right.”

  • Interesting to see if Lennon would be interested in Norwich? Rumour is that RVW is going to start today, hope not as it's got to be 4-5-1 with Hooper up front and that Wessi behind ( please please Hughton see the light!) Happy for Howson to play that role but just not sure if he would be fit and sharp enough, mind you Wes' boots must have mould on them!

  • Thanks, Herr Fleck. It makes the gag worthwhile. By `gag` I mean joke, of course. Poor old Becchio. I know he`s still being paid and all that, but he must feel a bit unloved at the moment...

  • Brew-I've heard rumours that the Hall of Fame is going "Hollywood" and introducing imprints of our heroes in plaster .no clues for guessing where the plaster is being laid for Becchio...oh the cheek of it!

  • John Terry is out of our league financially, bluelight. Anyway, I`m not sure that he`s a `very nice person`. We always like a `very nice person` at Carra Rud! Eddie Howe maybe? Not this season though. Too late.

  • Stew, just wondering if he had Aspergillus on his a**e. Btw, I`ve already invented the `three-headed hydra` manager; Hugh Trollderwood. Not interested in Becchio anyway. It`s that Babelicious Olly G at Cardiff...... You never responded to my Tyneside Tea Lady stuff on another board. Think it was Bassong`s `I used to hate Chrissy, but now...` topic.

  • I wonder if Sherwood`s a possibility? As long as he doesn`t thrash us 7-1 to bring it about. Wouldn`t be surprised if Spurs really want a "Big Name" manager and TS only has a 18 month contract, ie to end of next season.

  • Great put down "A fine city". Unfortunately we have even struggled gathering small scalps lately. This morning's papers meanwhile do not put us in a good light. McNally is reported as saying CH goes if we lose and that he has potential successors lined up. Favourite on the wish list is Lennon who has never indicated he wants to come here and Malky M who first needs to resolve his dispute with Cardiff. One assumes the bottom three test has been abandoned because even defeat today would not take us there. Neither would defeat at Villa because Sunderlands league game next week has been postponed for cup reasons. And what if we play out a nil nil bore draw with Spurs?
