Spurs Dream Team

Posted on 22 June 2004  - 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).

This is YOUR chance to pick YOUR modern-day Spurs Dream Team via YOUR votes on our online poll.

The Dream Team will be selected of players from 1960 onwards.

We are running daily polls to determine our Dream XI by positions - we've nominated goalkeeper, full-backs and centre-backs, it's the turn of the wingers today, central midfielders tomorrow and finally strikers on Thursday.

We'll then announce our Dream Team, as voted by you, on Friday.

Gary Mabbutt and Mike England will take our central defensive positions after winning 55 and 18 per cent of the vote yesterday.

So, next up, the wingers...top two will qualify...

Cliff Jones: 370 (8) appearances, 159 goals, 1957-69: Dazzling left winger, crowd favourite and the entertainer of the famous double side, Jones' raids down the left flank and bravery steaming into challenges at the far post are Lane folklore. Already a Welsh international before his arrival at Spurs, Jones was a star of the 61 side and won two further FA Cups and the Cup Winners Cup. Capped 59 times by Wales, he left for Fulham in 1968. Still a regular at the Lane.

Terry Dyson: 209 appearances, 55 goals, 1954-65: Remained on the fringes for four years but eventually won a place in the double side and will forever be remembered for the header that clinched the 1961 FA Cup Final and the match of his life in the Cup Winners Cup Final of 1963. Battled it out with Terry Medwin for regular place. Left for Fulham in 1965.

Tony Galvin: 262 (11) appearances, 31 goals, 1978-1987: A vital cog of the successful side of the early 1980s, Galvin's direct style fitted well into a side with the likes of Ardiles and Hoddle. Always willing to track back and tackle. Won the FA Cup in 1981 and 82 and the UEFA Cup in 1984. Capped 29 times by Ireland. Moved to Sheffield Wednesday in 1987.

Chris Waddle: 172 (1) appearances, 42 goals, 1985-1989: Battled his way through some ups and downs in his early days to find his form in the 1986-87 season and after a lengthy lay-off, produce a magnificent season in 1988-89, where he scored 14 goals and created plenty more. Moved to Marseille for £4.25m in 1989 before returning for spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford, Sunderland and Burnley. Capped 62 times by England.

Darren Anderton: 334 (30) appearances, 51 goals, 1992-2004: Right midfielder whose career was sadly hampered by serious injuries but still managed to battle back to play in Euro 96 and score in the 1998 World Cup. Made passing look easy and on his day, few more talented midfielders around. Always hooked up well with Teddy Sheringham from right flank but also impressed centrally. Released at the end of last season.

VOTE HERE

David Ginola: 126 (1) appearances, 22 goals, 1997-2000: Supremely gifted French winger who was at times an absolute joy to watch, not least in the 1998-99 season, where he scored memorable goals against the likes of Barnsley and Leeds as we won the Worthington Cup and reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup. He was rewarded with the PFA and Football Writers Player of the Year double. Superb on either foot, few will forget the sight of Ginola in full flow. Moved to Aston Villa in 2000. Capped 17 times by France.
