Regardless of the successes and failures of any one season, whether your club has won a trophy, bounced around mid-table or fought for survival, there is always at least one standout player.

While of course much of the greatness of football comes from it being a team game, it is nice to celebrate the individual achievements too.

Decided by the club's members and season ticket holders, Tottenham Hotspur have been giving out their own Player of the Year award since 1987. In that time club legends like Gary Mabbutt, Paul Gascoigne and Jurgen Klinsmann have all been recognised for their contributions, with three players (Sol Campbell twice, Stephen Carr twice and Robbie Keane thrice) taking the award on more than one occasion.

Given on an annual basis up until 2004, since the 2005/06 campaign the trophy has been awarded at the end of each season. This offers as good a cut off point as any to take a look back at the recipients of each Spurs Player of the Year award since then.

What was the story of each winner's season, and how did it fit into the overall picture of Tottenham's performance? What were their notable games and big moments? And to finish things off we take a brief look at the candidates for this year's award.
