5. Len Duquemin
Arthur Rowe's famed "push and run" side hold a significant place in Tottenham folklore, after all they were the first group of players in the club's history to win the First Division title (having won the Second Division a year earlier), in 1950-51.
Even so, they are a somewhat neglected bunch, coming as they did before television and wider media coverage had begun to take affect as it had by the time of Bill Nicholson's double-winning team a decade later.
One of their chief figures was the understated but vital Len Duquemin—Tottenham's main figure of goals in the post-war years.
His 134 goals from 308 games is all the more impressive for the fact he did not have the opportunity in either the League Cup or European competition, all of his came in the league and FA Cup.
Duquemin put in the kind of running that allowed Rowe's philosophy to come to life, providing a vital option for his teammates and their quick-passing game that thrived on movement—and as his goal scoring record shows he was a pretty darn good finisher too.
4. Alan Gilzean
Alan Gilzean scored an excellent 133 goals for Spurs in over 400 appearances, but it was the sheer quality of so many of his contributions for which he stands out.
His control and touch were regarded as impeccable, with his ability to utilize both in aerial situations regarded by some as almost unparalleled in recent times.
Jimmy Greaves and Martin Chivers, the two players with whom Gilzean formed such devastatingly effective partnerships, scored more for Spurs overall.
But it is doubtful they would have struck as many goals had it not been for the Scotsman beside them, who was as equally adept and intelligent a provider as he was a goal scorer.
Gilzean recently returned to White Hart Lane after a lengthy absence, receiving an extremely affectionate response when making an appearance at halftime during the win over West Ham
