Ultimate Team - midfielders, part 5
14 March 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Have you selected the midfielders in your Ultimate Team? Voting is still open!
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.
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...
A 5ft 3in pocket dynamo, Terry was a key member of the double side but saved his best as we made history by claiming the UEFA Cup Winners Cup in 1963. The final against Atletico Madrid was, quite simply, the game of his life. In that memorable 5-1 demolition, he created the second goal for John White, scored the third, set up the fourth for Jimmy Greaves before capping the night with one of the club's most famous goals, a 25-yard rocket into the top corner. Terry joined us in 1954 and played 209 games in all competitions, scoring 55 goals before moving to Fulham in 1965.
'Le Magnifique' had already made his mark in England when he joined us from Newcastle in the summer of 1997. He soon became a modern-day Spurs legend, his dazzling skills down the left flank thrilling all at the Lane. A League Cup winner in 1999, there were many memorable goals along the way - not least a Ricky Villa-esque dribble at Barnsley in the FA Cup - as David clocked up 127 appearances and 22 goals in all competitions between 1997-2000. His performances scooped a PFA/Footballer of the Year double in 1999.
Small in stature but a giant on the pitch, Luka joined us from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2008 and was a key member in the team that qualified for the Champions League in 2010. Luka returned from injury to start 17 of our final 19 matches in the 2009-10 campaign, forming a key midfield partnership with Tom Huddlestone in the final six matches that included back-to-back wins against Chelsea and Arsenal before the Champions League clincher at City in May, 2010. He played 160 times for us in all competitions and scored 17 goals before switching to Real Madrid at the start of the 2012-13 season.
