Now we turn out attention to right-back - here are the candidates...

Dean Austin - 1992-97 - Shared right-back duties with the likes of Terry Fenwick, Pat van den Hauwe, David Kerslake and Colin Calderwood in the early years of the Premier League, but enjoyed long spells in the team between 1992-95 and played 150 times for us in all competitions.

Stephen Carr - 1993-2004 - Made the right-back slot his own in the 1996-97 season and went on to become one of the best full-backs around, twice voted into the PFA's PL Team of the Season, before injury struck in 2001. Back in the team in 2002 before departing for Newcastle. League Cup winner in 1999, made 243 appearances in the Premier League and 270 in all competitions.

Paul Stalteri - 2005-2008 - Played most of the 2005-06 campaign as we finished fifth, but his best moment came against West Ham the next season, a last-minute goal to secure a 4-3 win at Upton Park. Played 56 times for us in all competitions, including 47 in the Premier League.

Pascal Chimbonda - A regular in 2006-07 and up to Alan Hutton's arrival in 2008, actually played left-back in the League Cup win against Chelsea in 2008. Made 103 appearances for us in total, 68 in the Premier League.

Vedran Corluka - 2008-present - Won a place in the team soon after his arrival and held off the challenge of Alan Hutton until Kyle Walker burst through last season. Has 109 appearances to his name, 81 in the Premier League.

Kyle Walker - 2010-present - Enjoyed an incredible first full season in 2011-12. Scored his first goal for us - the winner against Arsenal - and started 37 of our 38 PL games. Named PFA Young Player of the Year and voted into the PFA's PL Team of the Season. Performaces won an England call and looked set for Euro 2012 until injury in the last week of the season. Played 47 of our 53 matches last term.

We're putting together a team in a 4-4-2 system and we're using the poll facility on our official fan page on Facebook - CLICK HERE - to vote.

We will hold eight votes in total - goalkeeper, right and left full-back, two centre-backs, right and left midfield, two central midfielders and two strikers.

We'll run daily updates giving you the contenders for each position and the result of that position the next day. We'll also have reminders on Facebook and @SpursOfficial on Twitter.
