Your best Tottenham XI of all time?

Your best Tottenham XI of all time?

In your lifetime, what is your best 11 for Spurs? It doesn’t necessarily have to be the most talented crop, you can even include Paolo Tramezzani if he’s one of your favourites for whatever reason. Here’s mine;

Walker

Mabbutt
King
Woodgate

Hoddle
Waddle
Anderton
Gascoigne
Ginola

Sheringham
Klinnsman

I know what you’re thinking, too attacking. I did consider Steve Sedgley or David Howells anchoring the midfield but this team would be so amazing, they wouldn’t need to defend and with those 3 rocks at the back, other teams would give up just at the sight of them! If only Harry had a pool of talent like this to choose from, we would clean up.

  1. Jennings

    King
    Mabbut
    Roberts
    Campbell (sorry)

    Hoddle
    Ginola
    Carrick
    Gascoine

    Greaves
    Lineker

  2. my lifetime is 2002-present, hence the recent choices. picking all players from when they were at their best for spurs

    Robinson GK

    Corluka RB
    King CB
    Woodgate CB
    Edman LB

    Davies RM
    Carrick CM
    Huddlestone CM
    Malbranque LM

    Berbatov FW
    Defoe FW

    Corluka hasn’t done much and Edman was far from great, but fullback is our worst position by far and away and they are the best. Simon Davies was a top prospect and really shined when at his best. Malbranque is an absolute workhorse, one of the top players I’ve seen in a Spurs shirt. Carrick is class all the way through and an obvious choice, as is Woodgate and King. Robinson had a shocking final year but the ones before he provided great service.

  3. mabbsy, my team would be

    Robbo

    Austin
    Mabbutt
    King
    Edman

    Anderton
    Howells
    Gazza
    Ginola

    Sheringham
    Lineker

    Subs

    Walker, Sedgley, Samways, Barmby, Klinsmann,

    ‘Jazz It up”

    Ede-O

  4. Jennings

    Perryman
    King
    Beal
    Thomas (Danny!)

    Hoddle
    Gazza
    Ardiles
    Ginola

    Greaves
    Klinsman

    Subs: Clemence, Houghton, judas (sorry but he was good, no sod it) England, Waddle, Carrick Lineker, Gilzean

  5. Agree and any team not to include Gazza for that matter! Depsite his problems the boy was a genius.

  6. Gazza is not an essential. It’s about balance. Either Hoddle or Gazza, but not both.

    Look at us now without a midfield enforcer.

  7. This is a fantasy team, not one to win the prem. Give the ball to Hoddle, Gazza, Ardiles and Ginola from the kickoff and tell to keep it until halftime!

  8. Thorstvedt

    Carr
    King
    Campbell(if he was mediocre we wouldn’t have hated him still I guess…)
    Atouba

    Anderton
    Gazza
    Ginola
    Waddle

    Klinsmann
    Sheringham

  9. Not enough representation from the great Double team of 1960-61. They were all good, with 4 great players in Blanchflower, Mackay, White and Jones. Having said that, I would pick Hoddle and Ginola ahead of the latter two, just for the pleasure of watching them. So for me it’s:

    Jennings

    Perryman
    King
    Mabbutt
    Knowles

    Blanchflower (capt)
    Mackay
    Hoddle
    Ginola

    Greaves
    Klinsmann

  10. Pat Jennings

    Cyril Knowles
    Mike England
    Dave MacKay
    Ron Henry

    Danny Blanchflower
    Glen Hoddle
    Martin Peters
    Cliff Jones

    Jimmy Greaves
    Martin Chivers

    Subs
    Bill Brown
    Steve Perryman
    Jurgen Klinsman
    Bobby Smith
    Ossie Ardiles

  11. Everybody seems to have forgotten Alan Gilzean. Now there was a man who could direct a headed ball, and his goal tally was way up with the best.

  12. Jennings

    Perryman
    England
    Roberts
    Knowles

    Jones (Cliff)
    Mackay
    Hoddle
    Waddle

    Greaves
    Klinsmann

    If only………….

  13. Robinson

    Perryman
    Woodgate
    Carr

    Waddle
    Hoddle
    Ardiles
    Gazza

    Lineker
    Keane

    Subs- Klinsmann, Carrick, King, Mabbut and Thorstvedt

  14. need 2 teams
    jennings
    perryman
    england

    gough
    mackay

    waddle
    gazza
    carrick
    jones

    gilzean
    berbatov

    could pick another one not greedy

  15. Jennings

    Perryman, King, Roberts, Hughton
    Gazza, Hoddle, Villa, Ginola
    Klinsmann, Sheringham

    On the bench – Clemence, Ozzie, Lineker, Gilzean, Waddle, Mabbut

  16. Pat Jenning
    Steve Perryman
    Ledley King
    Gary Mabbutt
    Cyril Knowles
    Chris Waddle
    Gazza
    Paul Stewart
    David Ginola

    Subs
    Paul Robinson
    Michael Carrick
    Graham Roberts
    Glenn Hoddle
    Paul Allen
    Clive Allen
    Dimitar Berbertov
    Pat Jennings is undisputed as far as I can see probably in the top 5 keepers of all time in any team !
    Same goes for Gazza troubled and disturbed but genius.Get well soon.
    And in my opinion Paul Stewart was the last midfild general we have had at the club he has never been replaced.

    CORLUKA
    KING
    WOODGATE
    ASSOUE-EKOTTO

    LENNON(wide at all times, always told to beat his man on the outside)
    HUDDLESTONE(holding role)

    KEANE
    JENAS
    BASSONG
    HUTTON
    BENTLEY
    TAARABT(call him back from loan, he is the new zidane!)

  20. Best 11 since I have watched Spurs:

    Robinson
    Corluka, Woodgate, King, BAE
    Lennon, Jenas, Palacios, Modric
    Berbatov, Keane

  21. worst 11 ever ??? better question hehehe….GOMEZ,RICHARDS,VEGA,DOHERTY,FREUND,ETHERINGTON,JENAS,AUSTIN,REBROV,ROSENTHAL.

    Best team no joking now..JENNINGS,PERRYMAN,CAMPELL,KING,JONES,GASGOINE,HODDLE,GINOLA,WADDLE,MACKAY,LINEKER,(Klinssman,Blanchflower,Greaves,and a few others close…)

  22. Jennings

    Villa
    Lineker Defoe
    Edinbrugh

    Keane
    Allen
    Robinson(gk)
    Dawson

  23. Jennings;Ramsey,Knowles;England,Mabbutt;Mackay;Hoddle,Burgess;Jones,Greaves,Ginola.
    subs:Ditchburn,Perryman,Blanchflower,Chivers,Gilzean.

    I haven’t included current players. Most of these were considered among the best in the world in their respective eras. I put Greaves in as a lone central striker but Chivers or Gilzean could come in for Ginola if necessary.
    I have gone for a balanced team so Blanchflower is on the bench as I can’t see him in the same team as Hoddle.
    There are so many others that could have been included.

  24. Let’s try that again…
    Jennings;Ramsey,Knowles;England,Mabbutt;Mackay;Hoddle,Burgess;Jones,Greaves,Ginola.

  25. Jennings GK

    Bale LB LW Ginola In the hole:
    King CB (capt) RW Waddle Gazza

  27. You really think a 3-5-2 is the way to go? You really think that would stop an all-time (or at least an all-lifetime) Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, United or even Newcastle XI?

    And for “Anonymous” who wants Gazza in the hole, I think he’s already in one.

  28. Jennings GK

    I’m 2 young 2 have seen any of these players but would love 2 have done some people may question the 3-5-2 formation but with 5 attack minded midfielders we would pass every 1 and anyone 2 death nuff said

    I have tried to go for a team not just necessarily our best 11 players. Hence it had to be Greaves and Gilzean, Waddle and Hoddle, while Kinnear and Knowles were a great pair of attacking full backs, Kinnear was vastly underrated. Have not seen a better RB playing for us since.
