Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
Even though he was only with us for a short time i'd have to say my fave Tottenham player is Gazza. The guy had more talent that anyone i've ever seen play for us. Also, his best years were the Tottenham years.
hoddle,hoddle, born is the king of white hart lane! puts a lump in my throat! close second is ledley king! gary mabbs was an inspiration because of his diabetes and for being a gentleman, could go on and on, love them all!
Where to start....
In the modern era (last 25 years) I think it has to be Glenn Hoddle. There is no other player that other observers associate as a Spurs legend than Glenn. He had a touch and ability that was light years ahead of everyone else in his day. (Tackling may have been his weaker side...LOL)
In overall Spurs legend, for me it would have to be a tie between Danny Blanchflower & Jimmy Greaves. They had that certain "something" that stands them apart from the rest.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!!!!

of the players i have actually seen play the best spurs team would be
manager bill nicholson
please allow a little leeway with players maybe slightly out of position,but what a team they would be,well worth admission fee
I'm hoping that, in about 10 years or so, I'll be able to look back at our current team and say that Carrick, Lennon, Dawson, King, Keane, Defoe, Jenas and Robinson will be among my favourite players.
Until then, it's gotta be Hoddle, Gazza, Lineker, Waddle, Jurgen, Ginola, Nayim, Mabbutt. . .I'm too young to remember the 81 and 82 cup winning sides.

My fav ever Spurs player in my lifetime has to be Gary Mabbutt. He was totally committed to the Tottenham cause. You could always rely on him to have a good game and definately deserved more credit than he ever got.
My fav ever Spurs player before i was born would be Danny Blanchflower a committed leader who led on the pitch with total commitment through our true golden years.
I've lived in the US since the late '70's, but still get to watch the lads, and keep up on the internet. As a kid I used to go to the home games back in the early '60's when Jimmy Greaves was my hero. There were a lot of great players from that era - Blanchflower and MacKay, or the big guys Maurice Norman and Bobby Smith. But John White was a talent whose life was cut short, and who knows just how great he could have been - he was truly born before his time (back then it cost a shilling to get into the games and 3d for the program!).
