For the restart of the English Premier League, I thought it would be a good idea for me and Co football writer Alex Bennison to write our favorite teams All-time XI lineup. I’ll be covering Tottenham and he will be covering Manchester United’s roster. We are doing this because their first games back will luckily be against each other. Thank you for checking out my All-Time Tottenham Spurs XI from All Everything Entertainment.
Here is the Hotspurs Super XI
Goalie- Pat Jennings
Jennings was a footballer of the Year two times and the only goalkeeper to ever achieve such a feat. He was able to win five trophies during his decade-long tenure at Tottenham.
Left Back – Gary Mabbutt
He helped Tottenham bring home the UEFA cup in 1984 and the FA Cup in 1991 when he was luckily the Captain. He was able to play while batting Diabetes and was on the Spurs for over 16 years.
Left Center Back- Ledley King
One of the best do it all defenders for the team who could have been a lot better had he not had chronic injuries but still made such a mark on the team that he is considered of the best defenders to ever wear the Spurs Jersey.
Right Center Back- Mike England
Back in the 70s he was the youngest player ever to be named a captain of Wales at age 19 and was a beast at center back.
Right Back- Sol Campbell
Played 9 seasons for the Spurs. A guy who could both dazzle with the ball and who could be physical without it to put the other team on notice. He was able to play every spot in the backfield also.
Midfielder- Glenn Hoddle
One of the best technically sound players ever in England who is underrated.
Midfielder- Dave Mackay
He was considered the heartbeat of the team by his coach and was a major reason for the team winning the four major trophies that they won during his time there.
Midfielder- Danny Blanchflower
Was Captain when Tottenham became the first team to both win the League title and the Cup title in the same year. He played for the Spurs for over 9 years.
Forward- Jimmy Greaves
Arguably the greatest scorer of his era. He was so good he’s on Chelsea’s all-time team as well and often doesn’t get the recognition he deserves due to the fact he missed the works cup title when England won it in 1966.
Forward- Gary Lineker
Helped win Tottenham a FA cup in 1991 for the first time in over 10 years and scored 67 League goals in over 105 appearances. It could have been better if he didn’t team hop.
Second Striker- Harry Kane
Best current player for the Spurs. Dazzles with the ball and can score from just about everywhere. He has scored 136 goals since 2009. If he could stay in Tottenham longer he could eventually break the all-time goals record for the team.
Since joining Tottenham in 2015 Son has turned into an absolute goal scorer. Spurs can turn to when Kane is not on his game. Since 2015 he has 51 goals in 151 games and for his Korean national team, he has 26 goals. He’s only gonna keep getting better since he’s only 27.
