A nice lighthearted look at the club, might get people talking by asking supporters for their ‘BEST EVER SPURS TEAM’ – but that they only pick players signed by the club who they have ‘Actually’ seen play in the flesh (not on TV). It is not necessarily a debateable blog, as someone like my son who is say 26 years old would never have seen the great Jimmy Greaves play. I just felt it would be really interesting to see who a wide variety of fans of all ages would choose as the best players they have seen. They can have any system they like and can have any 7 subs.
My team is based on a 4-4-2 system. It has been extremely difficult to choose 11 players for ‘my’ team, and you may wonder how i could leave out such great players as Ginola, King, Chivers, Peters, Villa, Lineker, Sheringham etc, but at the end of the day you can only have 11 players + subs.
So here is my team of the greatest Spurs players I have actually seen play in the flesh.
(G) Pat Jennings
(D) Steve Perryman Mike England Graham Roberts C yril Knowles
(M) Alan Mullery Danny Blanchflower Dave Mackay Paul Gascoigne
(F) Jimmy Greaves Jurgen Klinsmann
Subs (7): Ray Clemence (G), Phil Beal (D), Maurice Norman (D), Glenn Hoddle (M), Ossie Ardiles (M), Alan Gilzean (F), Bobby Smith (F)
Manager – Bill Nicholson
