Could Tom Carroll be the Key to Swansea's Survival this Season?

Swansea City currently find themselves in 19th after a poor start to the campaign. Having finished 15th last season, the Swans will be looking to emulate that this season but have found it to be quite challenging following the departure of talisman Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton for £45m. Having signed for £4.5m in the January transfer window, how influential could Tom Carroll become in Swansea's race to beat the drop this season? Carroll is more of a deep-lying central midfielder with great …

Scoring freely for Spurs he fully deserved his call up to the senior England squad at the end of March where he capped a memorable debut with a goal against Lithuania to cement the side’s position as favourites to qualify for Euro 2016.

Scott Parker or Sandro? A statistical comparison

Scott Parker or Sandro? A statistical comparison

Not since Harry Redknapp signed Wilson Palacios in January of 2009 have Spurs had a tough tackling midfielder to compliment the creativity and flair in their midfield ranks. That was the case until Redknapp persuaded Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to part with £5 million for West Ham United and England’s Scott Parker.
