The top four remain Gareth Bale, Glenn Hoddle, Paul Gascoigne and David Ginola, tracked closely by Dave Mackay, Luka Modric and Ossie Ardiles.

There are numerous factors to consider - and with so many talented players having graced our midfield down the years, picking your four promises to be a tough task!

First off, the engine room needs players who could thrive in the middle of the park, winning back possession and driving us forward.

And then you need width. The pace and trickery of our wide men throughout the eras has been nothing short of dazzling, while a ball-playing maestro could provide that extra attacking flair from a central position.

Who would you pick? Have your say here and don’t forget you can still pick your goalkeeper and defenders.

To help you decide on your midfield quartet, we’ve split up the 18 candidates into sections.

Here’s a look at just three of the midfielders up for nomination...

GARETH BALE
Modern-day great, Gareth joined the club in the summer of 2007 and after a spell in and out of the team, grabbed his chance in an FA Cup tie against Peterborough United in January, 2010 - he didn't look back. Gareth showed what he could do on the biggest stage with a hat-trick at the San Siro in our 4-3 loss against Inter in the Champions League in October, 2010 before sparkling against the Italians again in our 3-1 win at the Lane. Gareth went on to score 26 goals in all competitions in 2012-13 - taking his tally to 55 in 203 games in all competitions - before his move to Real Madrid.

TERRY MEDWIN
An unsung but key member of our double-winning squad in 1960-61, Terry joined us from Swansea in 1956 and played 215 times for us in all competitions before a broken leg forced his retirement in 1963. Terry made 15 appearances in the double campaign and played in the final as we retained the FA Cup in 1962.

CLIFF JONES
One of the club's all-time greats, the flying Welshman joined us from Swansea in 1958 and went on to make 378 appearances in all competitions, scoring 159 goals - placing him fourth in our all-time goalscoring list. Cliff played a key role in the double campaign - 19 goals in 35 games - and started the 1961 and 1962 FA Cup Final and the 1963 European Cup Winners Cup Final. He was also on the bench as we won the FA Cup again in 1967. As popular as ever with fans, Cliff, who turned 80 in February, remains a regular hospitality lounge host.
