Sound Off: Player of Month 2

Posted on 10 September 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jamie Smith: My top player at spurs has got to be Ledley King. My reason being is that he has kept our defence rock solid and he looks like he will be the next Campbell.

Adam Slade: I choose Ledley King he has been consistent all this season and has grown up a lot. He is going to be a great player. Lets just hope we don’t lose him on a free transfer too!

Kudre Haan: King has been outstanding in our first three games. He is a strong defender with great passing skills. He still needs to improve his work in the air, though... Doherty has played brilliant as well, so I think Hoddle should look for a top class striker instead of hunting down another defender. Our offensive play has been poor so far - and if it doesn't change soon, we will have to look for new strikers.

Jeremy Russon: Ledley. Keep going mate, but lets stop the comparisons to Campbell, hard though it may be. Ledley is his own player and should be given the benefit for that - there is, after all, only one Ledley King, so lets concentrate on how positive his future is rather than dwelling on the distant past, i.e. the last time Campbell would have one a player of the month award!!

Mario Farrante: Ledley King's taken the player of the month award, outstanding, consistent performances from such a mature young man.

Jay Vickers: Easily Ledley King. He has been instrumental in our games so far and a big example for future young defenders. He has really come into his own and shown that Tottenham will not miss Sol Campbell, Ledley's defending is fantastic and he has yet to play the best years of his life.

Paul Kim: I chose Ledley King because he has shown so much dedication to the Spurs cause and this was shown in his solid performances last season and in the opening games of this season. He’s a player that has matured more quickly than Sol Campbell, who, in all honesty, took nearly 3 seasons to establish himself in the spurs defence. King has come into the team and coverted his skills into a solid performance. Sure he's still growing as a player but he will be instrumental in any silverware success Spurs may have in the future.

My question for Ledley King:
Does playing for the club you supported as a kid give you much more incentive to give 100% on the field?

Jon Neathey: It's a tough one. All our strikers look like they've forgotten what a goal looks like, even when you consider a few woodwork rattlers. I'd have to go for Ledley as well, although Bunje is looking like quite an astute signing.

Simon Buckingham: I think it is Ziege because his commitment is good and he scored a fantastic goal against Blackburn.

Brett George: I choose Ledley King because he’s been the best player and proved that against Everton when he took on players like Ferguson and Campbell. A future Spurs captain and legend in the making — let’s not let him ever get away like sol did, this player is a better prospect than sol ever was.

Shane Wyatt: As many others, I to choose Ledley, he always shows great playing ability but with that an air of maturity and professionalism. I feel our current wave of youth Davies, Doherty, Thelwell etc. are the key to our future success.

David Maddison: Ledley King as he has been superb and if he keeps it up surely he will be our captain in years to come.

Richard O’Donoghue: Our new young prodigy Ledley King gets my vote. I’m voting for him because he has looked like the only player to have had played well in all our games. He's young and confident and with the support he received from us on Saturday could go on to be better than sol.
