Top ten Spurs players of the decade: #2.

Ledley King
Following Sol Campbell’s disgraceful act of treachery way back in 2001, a defensive void at the club was created. The club needed a leader, a defensive rock and a hero- a player that could influence others and be respected by all in return. Players like this aren’t easy to come by, but we were [...]

Dimitar Berbatov.
Well well well, where to start? Berbatov went from being the darling of White Hart Lane to the villain of Tottenham in just a few, fateful weeks. His slick, at times arrogant style of play won him many fans, yet his departure to Manchester United left a bitter taste in the mouths of many [...]

Jermain Defoe
Defoe first joined the club in 2004, following the relegation of his former club West Ham United. He was blasted by their fans, dubbed a “glory hunter” and a “rat deserting a sinking ship” however he quickly won popularity with his new Tottenahm fans, thanks in large to the goal threat he offered and [...]

Football manager 2007, whilst fun to play, does in no way help your managerial skills. I used to be a bit of an addict (I count winning the Champions League with Leigh RMI one of the greatest achievements of my life) and before the Tottenham-Burnley game, considered myself to be a bit of a budding [...]

Jermaine Jenas
Opinion has long been split over Jermaine Jenas. Some like him, focusing on the goals he offers from midfield and the occasionally outstanding performance he puts it. Others don’t rate him at all, bemoaning his lack of consistency. I’m more in the “pro-Jenas” camp. True, he can be inconsistent, but he has been an [...]

Luka Modric
There’s no doubt that Luka Modric is well on his way to becoming one of the greatest footballers in Europe. He shone at Euro 2008, propelling the Croataians forward with his supreme playmaking ability, before joining Tottenham and doing exactly the same thing at the Lane. His passing, his vision, his delivery- all are [...]

Aaron Lennon
One of the signings of the decade in my opinion. Bought from Leeds for just £1 million, Lennon has became a key player for the club. He has made 124 appearances for Spurs, scoring 14 times. Known for his electric pace and direct running, Lennon is one of Tottenham’s most exciting players and has [...]

Michael Carrick
They say you don’t know how good it is until it’s gone. Well that’s true in the case of Michael Carrick. He spent two seasons at the Lane, appearing 64 times, before leaving to move to English Champions Manchester United. When he eventually left I was disappointed, but paid more attention to the fortunes [...]

“Sergent” Wilson Palacios
When news filtered through that the club had signed a little known Wigan midfielder for £12 million, I wasn’t best pleased. In recent years, we have signed Darren Bent, David Bentley and Sergie Rebrov for big money, and yet watched in horror as they have failed to live up to the hype and [...]

With the end of 2009 in sight, and the transfer window having shut a few weeks back, ‘Arry will have to make do with the squad he has until the window reopens in 3 and a bit months time.  Thus I thought it was a good moment to reflect on some of the Spurs teams [...]
