Tottenham Hotspur : Top Five Players

Benjamin RogersAnalyst INovember 11, 2008

It's time for the fifth Issue of the Top Five series and this time we are taking a look at Spurs.

Just in case you don't know why I'm doing the Top Five series competition, it's so I can find the most popular football player, not just on Bleacher Report, but to whoever wants to vote as well.

The competition works like this: the players will be my choice and my decision, and will be selected from the opinions of friends whose football knowledge I respect. Any players that could be added can be sent by comments from the viewers of the article.

I'll do a poll every issue to see who is the most popular player from each club, then at the end of the long article series, I will put all the top names into one big league article.

After I've gathered the favorite players from each league, I will put them into the end article to find out who the most popular player is overall.

I will try not to just include Europe in the competition but also include some of the other major clubs from around the world as well.

The leagues I will look at will be the Premier League, Ligue 1, Serie A, Bundesliga, LFP, MLS, Brazilian League, A-League, Portuguese League, and the Dutch League.

In the first Four issues we looked at Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea and in all four of the articles, people came out in their hundreds to vote and thousands to at least view the articles and for this I thank you as your opinions mean so much.

The Arsenal vote saw Fabregas win the Arsenal poll with 69.6% of the 273 votes, and the article got 3709 views.

The Manchester United vote saw Wayne Rooney take 39.9% of the 248 votes cast by the United fans and the article got 1667 views.

The Liverpool vote saw Steven Gerrard take 59.3% of the 322 votes cast by Liverpool fans, and the article had 2144 views.

The Chelsea vote saw Frank Lampard win with 59.7% of the 216 votes cast by Chelsea fans and the article made 1310 views.

It's now time for the Tottenham fans to step up and vote for their favourite player.

So without further ado, let's start the Tottenham vote.

No player has been ranked and the list is not in any particular order.

Top Five


Name: Aaron Lennon

Position: Right/left Winger

Age: 21

He is the young star at Spurs, and I predict great things for this young man. Great speed and turn and he will be a nightmare for any defender to mark. When Spurs play well he is always in the mix and he is a player who is adored by the Spurs' fans.


Name: Darren Bent

Position: Striker

Age: 24

This season Bent's goals have been a life-line for Spurs, he had to step up when Keane and Berbatov left and to be fair to the lad, he did. Still a long way to go but he is a pleasant surprise this season, for you Spurs fans anyway.


Name: Ledley King

Position: Centre Back

Age: 28

Ledley eats, sleeps and breathes Spurs and is a hard working die-hard defender who really puts everything he has into every single game he plays. The club captain is a fine product of the youth system and a great example for the young Spurs faithful and kids alike.



Name: Jermaine Jenas

Position: Midfielder

Age: 25

Some of the Spurs fans I spoke to said Jenas is the most underrated player at the club and deserves alot of respect. Over the past year or two he has done a lot of growing up, maturing into a fine midfielder who can, at times, change the game. For as far as I'm concerned, we should be seeing him in the England squad more and more.


Name: Roman Pavlyuchenko

Position: Striker

Age: 26

There were so many other players that could of taken this place such as Bentley, Gomes, Bale and Dawson but with the Russian starting to make his waves in the club I thought that he deserved the final place in the article. Such a poacher of goals and always the man in the right place at the right time and if I'm honest with Spurs in the position they are in that's exactly what they need, time will tell for him I'm sure.


Well, the Tottenham list is done, I'll be back with the next team in the series in a day or two.

If you have any suggestions for who you think should be in the top five, then please feel free to leave a comment, or if you just want to vote for one of the five, then please get voting.

As always, I hope you enjoy the article.
