Social Spurs - Best Free-kicks
SOCIAL SPURS - BEST FREE-KICKS
Posted 19 February 2013 08:19am
Welcome again to 'Social Spurs' - a new feature where we'll take a selection of views from our fans' debate, conversation and opinion on our social media platforms - @SpursOfficial on Twitter and Facebook - and run them here on tottenhamhotspur.com.
Gareth Bale's free-kicks against Lyon and Newcastle had us thinking 'what is the best free-kick by a Spurs player?'
So we put that thought out to our followers on @SpursOfficial on Twitter and, as always, the response was fantastic.
No surprises that Gazza's famous strike against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley in 1991 - voted over the years by fans as one of the best moments ever - got most mentions, but there were a number of free-kicks that made the long list, including Christian Ziege's beauty against Arsenal in 2002, two from Gazza against Derby and Peter Shilton in 1990 and, more recently, Jermaine Jenas' ripper at Old Trafford in 2005 and Kyle Walker's curler from distance against Blackburn last season.

Neil Ruddock hit a half-volleyed free-kick after being teed up against Norwich in 1992. We won 5-1. Awesome strike.
